App only works once between restarts If I listen to a stream, then stop listening it keeps the notification opened. I can't get that to close and I can't get the app to start playing again except by restarting my phone. I've tried force quitting, as well as getting in touch with wnyc about it. No luck with any of it.
I want to love it I love WNYC, but this app isn't doing the trick. I can't "save" podcasts to listen to them offline, even after they swear to have downloaded to my device over Wi-Fi. The app is so slow that even something as basic as scrolling can become a big project
The marketing alerts they push to my phone are very annoying. It vibrates and an alert appears telling me to listen now to whatever happens to be playing on WNYC. I cannot turns these off. If I close the app I don’t want these annoying alerts appearing. I think I’m going to uninstall the app and get my NPR fix from another station.
Works, but won’t close I’m glad to note they’ve fixed the memory leak (my previous 1-star review was titled, “Get a radio,” the app was so bad) but it is still very irritating that the app has no “close” option. I can pause the playback and switch to other apps, but unless I use Android settings to forcibly close it, the app stays there in the notification bar.
Freezes constantly I am an avid wnyc listener and really want to like this app, but there is no mechanism for closing it and it freezes constantly.
LOVE NYC HATE THIS APP I've been a long time listener to wnyc, and npr more generally, so was quite enthused to find an app that was going to offer me wnyc programming on my phone, but also on the go. Sadly this app delivers none of its promises. Downloaded programming isn't accessible despite showing up as ready to listen to, the live play feature only works about 10% of the time. While I get that the app is free and I'm in a beggars-cant-be-choosers situation, I can indeed be a chooser, by uninstallling this lousy app
Happy Spring! Bug fixes and better offline mode.
