On your next Update could you please do some basic major BUG FIXES.

This is the most frustrating and disappointing App I have ever tried to use. Having to register now may be one thing. Another is why it continues to be so difficult for this App to get and keep a connection to a live WLS broadcast.

I love the “Po Po Report” but listening to their show on Saturday evening is impossible if I’m not near a radio. This App was to be the answer but I found that the initial connection takes far too long and then it’s almost impossible to stay connected. This evening may have been my last attempt to use this App. The “Po Po Report” was on the radio and this App. Establishing a connection on the App was difficult and once connected continuous advertisements, including numerous repeats of the same add, played while the actual show was barely on. To my amazement, the radio had been playing the “Po Po Report” for some time while this App was playing more and more Adds. Was this a joke? (I’m thankful that this show is available as a Podcast.)

Pop up ads with no exit, and now registration

This app has tended to work pretty well but a few weeks ago it started popping up full screen covering ads. Some of these had no ‘x’ or other obvious means of closing them so I had to shut down the app to regain access to the controls. And now I’m reading about mandatory registration to continue using it (I haven’t updated to that version... perhaps the ads are to force people to update to see if that gets rid of them?).

Another decent app being ruined by bad behavior and customer hostile decisions.

The next day the app refused to run unless I updated. The new version almost instantly pops up a full screen ad with NO EXIT option from lending tree and I have to close the app, sure as hell not going to click a malicious ad. This has repeated many times making the app unusable. ZERO stars if that were possible.

I just tried to send Airkast a note via their website about these problems and the contact form apparently does not work. I guess they don’t want to hear about it.

Volume control

I constantly have to adjust the volume higher then lower during the Mancow show His volume is always different than other personalities and telephone guests then commercials. All this makes for a very frustrating morning of listening on the app.
