Drops out, can’t Chromecast

The streaming audio for this app seems to drop out a lot more frequently than other streaming audio apps. Only way to fix it that I’ve found is to close and restart the app.

I also really wish the app had chromecast so I could listen on a real speaker while I run around in the morning instead of having to stuff my phone in my sports bra.

Smooth & Fast

For quick live listening this app is the best! I love that my station is just two taps away! One to open the app one to press play! I have not had the issue others had with the audio stopping. This app is a great escape from the tap trap other apps will get you sucked into.

Every time I listen after a few minutes app stops streaming. Only way to get it to work again is to shut down phone and restart. Super frustrating.
