Good app, stops playing when locked

Always appreciate it, but the new version stops playing the live stream when the phone is locked. This is a problem and wasn’t that way before. When the phone is idle and playing the radio stream, it shuts off after a couple minutes. Makes it sorta unusable.

Great App (Watch version coming?)

This is a great app for a great station. I use it all or most days of the week. My modest wish list would include:

1. A slightly longer cache for when WiFi or cellular data drops out briefly, which is pretty common where I live.

2. Apple Watch compatibility so I can go out in the woods (or wherever) without my phone on me and still keep KCRW running.

Fix the streaming!

After the update, the streaming stops when the screen locks. Please change this! Continued listening on my iPhone has just become impossible.
