Buffering issues I'm sitting still with 99% WiFi signal, speedtest clocks my down speed at 22.5 /s. So why the constant buffering?
Sync doesn't recognize the app And yes. I have made sure it is set up correctly in the app. Also the feedback link within the app doesn't work.
The only problem I have with it is that I can't find a way to fast forward within a story. I can only skip ahead to the next story. But sometimes the podcast I'm listening to will jump back to the beginning. So, I have to listen to the whole thing over again or not finish what I was listening to. Other than that, it's a great app, and I enjoy using it.
Slow on audio playback Stories and hourly news updates take as much as 3-5 minutes to load. Several times I've given up and switched to another app only to have the story I wanted suddenly start playing unexpectedly.
Uncloseable banner ads As if the ads weren't annoying enough, now they are uncloseable. The X button does nothing. F*** that. Uninstalled.
Fails to load radio This App is so much worse on Android then on iPhone for some reason. I am switcing to Android and still have my 6 plus and also an iPod Touch. Apple loads radio almost instantly on both devices....on my 6 Edge Plus it almost never loads. I wait at leas t 4min before I just put it on my iPodTouch. Just strange and horribly bad. Sad.
We are happy to announce we have a listening widget. Finally!
The player and playlist experiences have been streamlined. We've hopefully fixed some of the playlist issues around listening to entire programs and cleaned up some other pesky bugs.
We've also added sponsorship to our story pages. You can learn more about the different kinds of support NPR needs to maintain itself - including corporate sponsors - here: http://www.npr.org/about/support/
