Choppy after update! WNYC please fix your app, it has the best podcasts to date but you need to fix your streaming! It's so choppy and after a little while it stops all together and I have to completely shut down the app to get back to the stream and its still choppy.
Buggy. Crashes constantly. Looses stream. Would be 2 stars if I didn't use it constantly, but this app freezes and crashes constantly. Look into just getting a radio app instead. ***UPDATE: Down to one star since the update I can't minimize the app during streaming or it becomes too choppy to listen too. App is unusable in current form. Will change rating after a patch.
So close The content is there.... it's just hard to stream it. Streaming constantly locks the app up and there are semi-frequent drops. Have to click on another episode of a PC so I can click BACK on the one I was listening to. These shows are great! Please make it so we can listen to them.
Unstable This app crashes if you look at it the wrong way. Audio occasionally starts skipping if app doesn't have focus. Very frequently audio will stop completely when some other app is opened, or if you literally touch your phone. Running Android 7.0 on Nexus5x
Won't play in background Update: now no longer plays on background on discovery mode. //Won't play in background. When I listen live, or to any broadcast I select (not discovery mode), I cannot navigate away from the app without the broadcast breaking up. Not great for multitasking on my AM commute.
Terrible "upgrade" I I just want to kick myself that I allowed WNYC to upgrade automatically. I cannot even get it to work anymore at all. And there's no way to undo the upgrade that I know of. I'm just furious and hope that they correct this soon. I am a WNYC supporter and I am so mad right now that makes me want to withdraw my monthly support. Works again, so I am changing my rating. UPDATE April 2016. This is turning into a bit of a bad joke. It seems every other version has flaws. Now the app keeps shutting down.
