Feedback on new app


The below problems have now been fixed and the app works just as well as the old one but with the added benefit of extra stations to listen to.

Preferred the old app to be honest. You can’t select a home station so whenever you start the app it automatically defaults to Sydney and with the previous app if I took a phone call it would automatically start playing again at the end of the call. Now I need to go back into the app and press play again. Super frustrating.

I love it

I really enjoy the radio itself but the podcast is definitely my favourite section. Everything is working perfectly fine ! Thank you for my new morning routine listening podcasts, Nova!

Very Buggy

I mainly listen to music via CarPlay. This app takes a stupidly long time to start playing any station and every time it starts, it plays an ad. Even I get a call which interrupts the stream for 30 seconds, an ad will play before the music connects again. If at all. Often I need to restart the station again. Pressing okay usually does not work.
Also stream quality is very low. Worse than FM. I can use Radio App and the quality is almost perfect.
Maybe a choice of quality streaming would be good.

App has potential but needs a lot of work, I believe.
