Completely redesigned and rebuilt for better user experience
Ratings and Reviews
I definitely like having the app on my iPhone but it is frustrating. Just as others have noted, if a call or alert comes in, the live stream stops and does not resume automatically. I have the app for WNYC in New York and this doesn’t happen. Maybe you could ask them for some tips.
Please fix or go back to version 1.2
The complete redesign and rebuild has NOT led to a better user experience. The previous version worked. No continuously dropped streams , no connection problems. If it did drop out it would resume almost immediately and play from where it dropped off. A joy to listen to and stay updated with factual news. Now not so much. It is work to use this app for the past 2 months and frustrating because being interrupted this much and missing chunks of what you were listening to, when you are absorbed in the news or another program puts it in the unpleasant experience category. Now seriously thinking about finding another similar streaming source. Too bad as I donate often to WLRN and would of course prefer the continuous , uninterrupted service it was in version 1.2. Please let us know you are working on a timely fix.
Worst news app in creation
This is absolutely the most frustrating app on my phone. I have been a news junky & npr junky my entire life but since i started using a phone to consume it, about 16 mo a i have said goodbye to WLRN and hello to SXM. My loss of local coverage is sad for me. But this app drops CONSTANTLY. If ur lucky u will get 12-15 min of broadcast. Then it will drop..silence for 10-15 sec; then station ID or sponsor commercial for 15-60+ sec. then a couple more mins of news, and repeat. Drop could be incoming message from your phone or no discernible reason at all. After just 1hr this AM I again want to throw my phone across the street. Do better Friends of WLRN! Where are membership dollars going if not to improve member experience! HELP US HELP U!
