Notifications off

This is an important app for me to have to be aware of everything that’s going on today. However I do not wish to receive push notifications asking for a donation. So I must cripple this app by turning the notifications off, rendering less useful. I hope I can get notifications for important events of news from some other source now that I have had to eliminate this one sadly. 🙁

The app intermittently stops playing. Here are some details:

The app intermittently stops playing. Using it here at the house with WiFi available. . Plays for 5 minutes then stops for 5 seconds. Plays for 1 minute then stops and restarts after maybe 10 seconds; or 20 seconds or just plain stops altogether. Sometimes it will replay the initial boot up station promo. Most times it just restarts where it left off. It doesn’t actually crash and disappear. I tried using a lower playback fidelity and that hasn’t cured the problem. I don’t know what else to try. In the last hour have successfully used the Apple “Podcasts” app and had no problems whatsoever.

Buffering problems for years

The app would be fantastic except for the buffering issues. Doesn’t matter if I switch devices or if I’m on cellular or Wi-Fi. The app doesn’t stay connected to the stream very well.

When you start to stream there’s a message about organizations that make Michigan Radio possible. The biggest problems with the buffering is that it replays this message every time it disconnects/buffers even if you just heard it 30 seconds ago.

So frequently when I’m listening to a story I miss it because I’m listening to the same message repeated over and over. Very frustrating.
