I am a devoted WBUR listener and supporter, but I have now finally had to uninstall this app. It's been problematic from the beginning, stalling and crashing constantly; but now, since the most recent update, there is no way to shut the app down when I'm finished using it. Completely unacceptable. Get with the program (pun intended)
Update 8/24/17 Very disappointing. This new version appears to be just a cosmetic face lift of the old code. The old bugs don't seem to have been corrected. Once the app is closed, it remains in the notifications area and malfunctions in repeatable ways. It can only be killed by rebooting my Android device. SAD!
Really needs to work right. The app is low quality and won't even close when I stop the stream, even killing the process doesn't remove it from the notification bar. Uninstalled
Need to Force Quit this app now when I stop streaming. Really inconvenient. (One bright spot is it's crashing less frequently than it did before.)
App will not disappear from notification bar or lock screen even when I haven't used it for over 12 hours. Only way to get it to disappear is to restart the phone. Really awful design.
*Edit 2017-07-17: We've reverted. I again no longer have the ability to completely shut down the app once started. Previously, there was an app close 'X' in the notification pull-down. That has gone away. Very disappointing. *Edit 2013-08-12: With the latest release, I no longer need to force close the app to stop the stream. I can now recommend the app without reservation.* I do appreciate being able to stream WBUR on my phone, but I may go back to other apps to do it. I had high hopes that the new version would fix the reported issues with closing the app, but no such luck. On my Motorola Photon running 2.3, the only way to completely stop the app after starting a stream is still to Force stop it in the applications list.
