Why I don’t use this more

Every time I start the app I have to endure a 10 or 15 second ad.

Not a big deal BUT if reception/signal is spotty, I endure that ad several times in a row.

Not to mention the same 4 radio ads they play on the broadcast.

What blows my mind is some of the ads on the app are even geographically relevant!

Holy cow! I realize this is commercial radio, but F I will not use this app long term because of the marketing and endless advertising.

This app needs an update.

I used to use this app exclusively. It was great and I loved it. In the last year or so, the app is buggy. I will be listening and go to pause, by tapping on my headphones pause button. Sometimes pause works, sometimes I go to iOS control panel and pressing play does not work. I have to go into the app and select play. Sometimes I will pause and later I will notice the app has started playing again. I have stopped using the app all together. Just go to the Apple Music app and search for WGN radio or tell Siri to play WGN radio. You don’t need the app.

Too many commercials on connection

Every time my phone changes access points (all same SSID) as I move between upstairs and downstairs, I hear the connection commercial for Chevy again. This interrupts the program and is very irritating. I used to use radio garden to avoid this problem, but it seems that WGN cut off that access. Other station's apps don't have this issue. Don't I listen to enough commercials in the program stream? Please fix.
