Quits Unexpectedly I've been happy with this app until the latest version of Marshmallow was released. Now it quits unexpectedly, saying that "information about the app could not be retrieved at this time." Other times it'll pause automatically while I'm using another app. Quite frustrating. I'll give a better rating once these problems are resolved.
Love WBUR....App not so much *Update* App was updated after almost 2 years and now streaming works (at least for me)! Also love access to previous programs. 5 stars if stable. Same complaint as everyone else on here. Just doesn't stream. Every once in a while it will work and I continue to waste more time trying it in the hope today will be the day it behaves and plays. Bad sign that they haven't updated since July 2013! *Tip: you can listen to live stream through WBUR website in chrome mobile but that just feels lame. Xperia Z3.
Great content but technical glitches If I pause a radio program and close the app, it remains in the phone browser screen (despite the app not being open). Have never noticed this with another android app. Shoddy programming (apparently).
||| "Dangerous" on Nexus 7!! ||| Nexus 2B16, in my case, but that probably doesn't matter. Seems to work, BUT: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK UNTIL THE DEVELOPER GETS HIS/HER ACT TOGETHER. It disables a Nexus tablet's interface, no less! That means all three virtual buttons at the bottom of your screen are dead! Reporting the crash meant selecting WAIT every three seconds or so. As to quotes on "Dangerous", they're not for emphasis; this app likely will only scare you but do no harm. _________♥ As to its basic purpose, seems to work fine. ♥
Improved significantly, needs Chromecast The app is much better! Still occasionally glitches when a pre recorded program is interrupted. Could use Chromecast support, as well.
Won't Load Please fix since update I can't load app.
Check out the all new WBUR app!
