Pretty, but useless I use this app for one thing, to listen to the live WBUR stream. The old version, though not prefect, did this very well. The new app wants to be a podcast player. I don't want to listen to yesterdays Morning Edition, I want to listen to today's live stream. However getting to that stream is often impossible. I have had to switch to a different app, tunein, to get to the live stream. Not acceptable. Also they have removed the feature, where if you removed the headphones from the Jack the stream would stop.
Excellent update. Whiners are wrong. Great new interface. I don't know why some reviewers can't find the live stream option. It's the top half of the home screen! Nice that the upcoming schedule is just one click away, and all the major shows are right on the homepage.
Love wbur but... The new app keeps dropping out. I have to push stop and play every 5 min...
Drastically improved live stream experience compared to NPR app!

Stops playing when undocking Looking for a more stable live streaming app for my favorite local NPR stations around the country. Tried this one for WBUR, but audio stops every time I undock my phone (Note 4; Samsung Smart Dock). I do this 10+ times a day, so this won't work for me :(
