Connection Connection Connection

My biggest and only real complaint about the app is the random loss of connection. I’ll be deep into a story, and WALL!! Just stops. About 15% of the time, it re-establishes the connection, but that’s not great performance. I have to navigate to the app and push PLAY again. Why?? Luckily this only happens about once a week. Too much but bearable.

A recent update DID cause me to have to delete and reload the app. I guess it wasn’t thoroughly tested.

But the app is super easy to use, beautifully organized, excellent access to everything thru the GUI. And the content?? WPLN ROCKS!!! There’s no NPR superstation where I live now, so I still listen to WPLN. Still sustaining. Gotta be willing to pay for the good stuff!!

WPLN/NPR on the Go!

I love that I can listen to NPR, and most enjoyably, my local station when I’m on the go. No more lost signal on the radio and forced to find another station…Even worse is when there is no local station as when I go to work. (Live in Nashville, but I work in Columbia.) As others have noted, there are however drops in the app’s signal, which forces one to hit “play” in order to get it started back up. If not for this, I’d give it 5 stars.

Good but needs better buffering...

This is a handy app but if you pause content that you’re streaming and restart it a couple minutes later it will often start playing from your paused point in the content but after a minute or two glitches back to real time. Also the random station ID ads in the middle of programming is frustrating...Despite the shortcomings the app is still more convenient than listening via the internet or radio but YMMV.
