Choppy and locks up Never had a problem on my Samsung Galaxy s5, got the s7 a few weeks ago and this app is terrible. Choppy audio on the podcasts, cuts in and out, locks up too. It's so annoying!
Love wnyc. Hate this app. Disclaimer: I'm a sustaining member. It's even worse after marshmallow update. If I'm in another app it will last longer but if I'm listening to a live stream and in a different app the audio will cut out after a few minutes. If I switch back it will show only play buttons, but I have to hit play on a different stream and then click play on the stream I want to listen to for it to play again. If this isn't happening, the app crashes completely, disappears from my running apps entirely. So buggy.
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.
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
It's 2016, streaming audio is not rocket science. Audio stream + any of dozens of open source streaming libraries = working app. Even 3rd party apps can't stream WNYC anymore. Haven't been able to listen to WNYC on my phone for months. No listen = no donate.
