Lots of buffering problems

I’ve used this app for years and am a huge fan and member of WPR. At times, and seemingly more frequently with the latest upgrade, the app nearly constantly pauses for buffering. The sponsor message will often reply when the stream goes again. I’ve switched to other streaming services at the same time, including NPR One, to test if it is the Wi-Fi connection and had no problems with the streaming on those apps.

Delightful music, interesting and captivating programs, and easy to digest news coverage. WPR is always excellent. The app only improves in my personal opinion. Some are saying when they call or look at something else they are kicked off their program. This does not happen on my phone. If I use sound in other apps I can return and pick up right where I left off. I’m listening to it as I write this review. The update color and design is neat, clean, and organized. An overall very satisfying experience. More than any other app I have. What would I do without WPR. Thank you.

Very frustrating

The former version was easy to use, although not very pretty. Now, when I listen to the live broadcast in the early morning, it turns off after about an hour. Why? I want to skim or read many of the stories, but the audio comes on automatically when I select that story. Why? If I have the app open on my iPhone or iPad and grab my device, I often accidentally touch some part of the screen that changes what I’m listening to and I have to go back through several steps to get back to what I want. Not fun. I love WPR; we support it financially; it’s my primary source of news and general daily entertainment. The new app is confusing and it takes too many steps to get to where one wants to be.
