97.9 App

I love being able to listen to live radio on the go. I've been trying to do that about a year without success- now I don't have to stream online. THANK YOU FOR THIS APP!! My only complaint is that the option to run in the background doesn't work. I have a 3GS and my husband has a 4 but neither of us have been able to get that function to work. If that gets fixed, then this app will be even more awesome!

Horrible App great station

This app is horrible and probably the worst music app I’ve ever used. You have to listen AND watch 5 ads before you can hear music. They make you physically close the ads on the screen to make them go away. Impossible and unsafe to use in a vehicle while driving. If you get a phone call the app stops playing music and you have to go through the same unsafe tapping of a tiny X to get back to music. Only reason I use it is because I don’t live in Houston and this is the only way for me to listen to 97.9. I HATE THIS APP. You’d think they would put effort into making it better but nope. It’s terrible and only a matter of time before someone dies trying to use it.
