• TUES, MAY 25, 2021 • HARDWARE: iPhone 11 Max. • SOFTWARE: iOS 14.5.1 • At least this time I can open the app, and not have it immediately scram. • Still, the app seems incredibly dated, and tragically out of step. • You have a logo that relies on the italic-LCD look of a 1980s-90s clock-radio? COME ON! • The whole app looks bad: Pictures stretched, pop-up ads covering content. • Is it that clunky, old app memes are supposed to appeal to those MAGAs who don’t know how to disengage CAPS LOCK? . • May 23, 2021 • HARDWARE: iPhone 11 Max. • SOFTWARE: iOS 14.4. • Can’t open the app at all. Pop up box says something about not being able to connect to internet, then whole app just crashes & scrams. This app must need a whole digital refresh—especially the ridiculous logo, which looks like it came airmailed from the 1990s!

Used to work like a charm

The pre-roll advertisements work every time. The app itself will stream maybe 10-25% of the time. This only started happening recently, so I’m guessing it was caused by an app or iPhone update? Please fix it, otherwise the app is trash.

Great Content... Lousy app

Remarkable that this station, the flagship for Chris Plante, seems clueless that its app is crap. The only thing you can count on -- assuming it turns on at all - are the commercials that play when it launches. After that, it's anybody's guess. It frequently shuts off of its own accord. The "play" toggle is useless. I access the shows by opening the website tab and then "listen live"... But even with that workaround, it often shuts off by itself. Frustrating and infuriating. I'd use the radio but I live in Baltimore, just beyond the DC signal, so I have to rely on this thoroughly unreliable piece of junk.
