App badly needs tweaking

Update: I still use but get extremely frustrated that anytime stream gets interrupted such as using pause to answer a family member’s question, to decline a phone call, etc., I am forced to listen to a 5-10 second ad before the stream resumes. This causes me to miss content which may be news, a story, supreme court arguments, etc. Would love to see responses from app developers to know if they are working on the flaws mentioned.

I mostly use to stream live. Lose connection when straying too far from wi fi such as when gardening. Also sometimes accidentally tap another show and lose the live stream then hard to get back to where I was. An undo button would be nice for such occasions. Also a 15 second rewind button for when outside noise makes me miss what was just said. I use often cuz love kuow but app could use a little help.

Missing Recent Podcast Episodes

I really appreciate being able to listen to KUOW live on my phone without navigating to the website each time. I also enjoy reading the text of some of the stories I hear on the radio and accessing content I may have missed, otherwise. However, a major downside of this app is that none of the episodes of the KUOW podcasts I regularly listen to have been added since August. They’re available if I go to the KUOW website, though. I’ve checked if I missed an update of the app, and I have the most recent version. I tried deleting and re-installing the app to no avail, as well. I would use the app much more often if this problem was fixed. Thank you!

I wish I could keep it

As an avid NPR listener, I loved this app. I could easily stream while running or just doing stuff around the house.

Unfortunately, it took up nearly half the storage on my phone (29GB), and I couldn’t justify having it any longer. It’s a shame because I love the streaming convenience, but I can’t justify the massive amount of storage it takes up.
