It Is Okay

There is ‘good’ and there is ‘ good enough’ - this app is good enough

Navigating around the various news articles is a bit clunky

Shuts off automatically

I opened the WBFO app and pressed play to listen to the 7 am news today. The app stopped playing in the middle of the first story following the news. I was in the shower and couldn’t do anything until after. This happens a few times a week, including when I’m listening in the car. When it happens, the app completely disappears from the open apps on my phone and I have to reopen it. This has been going on for a couple years now, but finally got around to reviewing it today. If there’s a place to review in the app itself, I couldn’t find it.

Works better than iTunes!

I used to listen through iTunes, but it glitched a lot. I got the app a couple weeks ago, and I don’t think it has lagged at all. It’s great to link directly to stories as well! So much better
