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!
Terrible app. Constantly crashing and running in the background using up data. Not sure why this is so hard to do...I now just stream from the website on my phone which is a pain. Definitely do not recommend and highly suggest that WBUR get this fixed.
Why do I have to use a task manager to exit the app? If I don't it starts playing again Surrey every phone call! Still having disconnect problems too. Unhappy.
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.
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
