Doesn’t work and not being maintained

Thought I’d leave a review and confirm this app isn’t working (Nov2019) before getting rid of the "dead weight" on my phone.

Doesn’t seem like they’re maintaining the app at all which is a shame as they can get valuable listener insights.

App Not Working.

5FM app keeps giving the following error when trying to listen live “ Streaming Error - The audio Stream timed out “

Happens even after removing and adding the app again.

On latest iOS and using the 8Plus.

Can’t stream the app

Guess the SABC doesn’t have any money to fix this app. Been getting the stream error for a while now. Very disappointing not being able to listen to what once was my fave SA station.
