Box app

I really enjoy this app because I’m able to listen to the box app anywhere I go but for the past week the music stops so I have to keep restarting the app and it’s really frustrating when this has not happened before. Hope they can fix this bug because this is the best and only way I can listen when I’m at work 😏

Good but needs improvement

Glitches some times when opening app with pop ups, and way too many commercials at one giving period.

App is broken

Still can’t listen to the radio if I’m using mobile internet, but it still works with Wifi
