The KQED app sucks! They are more interested in repeating sponsor ads, than providing a reliable stream. Every one to five minutes it stops streaming. A manual restart is required, which triggers listening to a sponsor ad again, and again, and again. Forget this app, get a transistor radio instead. Cell service providers could unlock the FM radio in our cell phones, but their greed prevents them from doing something for our convinence.
Very unreliable. Audio stream cuts out unpredictably all the time, like every 5-10 minutes, and then you have to click play again and wait for it to buffer and listen to another ad. KQED, please make this app work properly!
It doesn't work reliably . Sometimes the UI loads, I click play, it says "Buffering..." for a little and then no sound. (The media sound is turned up, etc.) Other times it just seems to crash.
So. When I first installed this, I had no problem. It was glorious. I was able to listen to CA Report podcast, which is why I downloaded it. Opened it today and nada! It doesn't play. Nothing. I'm rather disappointed. :/
Now I remember why I don't support pbs. Too many racist black programs!!!!!!
On Android 7.1.1 I've never had sound. Internal speakers, plugged or Bluetooth headphones, I get nothing. The app says it's playing. Never had an issue on iOS. I've resorted to listening via a browser.
