I love VPR, but this is a terrible app. It's unresponsive, so you don't know whether it's registered a touch and everything takes forever, so you end up tapping again and pausing it because you didn't know it was playing. It does not keep your place in on-demand shows, and I have not figured out how to make it continue playing after my phone turns off, whatever it is, it's not a permission I can find. So it's constantly loses your place, and you have to start over.

Buggy, leaves a bar in my notifications even when I close the app, audio constantly stutters, and it changed my notification preferences without a prompt. The only redeeming thing is this allows me to listen to radio, just very poorly. You annoyed me for a review, well here it is. Edit: 2 to 1 stars because all of this is still a problem, except now the "this live stream brought to you by..." notices constantly interrupt in the middle of programs. This app is pretty much unusable.

I love listening to many NPR stations at home. When I am out walking I tune into the app via Bluetooth. What I find annoying are the interruptions for advertising, especially when they occur at inopportune times, sometimes causing you to miss the heart of the story or the punchline. Do the adverts at the start and ad, as is the case with broadcast radio. Also the app sometimes looses the signal and does not always start back up.
