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.
PLEASE FIX It's been months since an update, iOS has a new app - how about updating the app for the world's largest platform?! I know you're a small outfit but this is getting silly. The app still will not run audio in the background (except when playing via Bluetooth), and still does not pause or mute during voice typing or navigation.
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 Audio occasionally starts skipping if app doesn't have focus. Very frequently audio will stop completely when some other app is opened, or you interact with some other app or OS itself. Basically, it crashes if you look at it the wrong way. Running 6.0.1 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.
