Love the current

I absolutely love the current, it’s my favorite radio station! However, I’m not really a fan of the low audio quality of stream. I feel like I am listening through a tin can! I hope this can be improved because it would probably make the current app my favorite!

Best music

I stream the current all the time and highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t checked it out. Please support your public radio station! Minor thing: Took a long time to figure out where the new Current 15 stream is. Maybe the subtle background “XV” that differentiates it from the main Current stream could be made more obvious? The other streams in that panel all have super clear text/logos for their names. Otherwise keep up the great work!

Keeps crashing!

I love the current and want to stream it all the time but the app keeps crashing, even after uninstalling it and restarting my phone.
