Streaming works, but cannot create an account

Nice to stream WNYC live from afar, but I’ve been getting an “unknown error” message when I try to enter a password while creating an account. It’s been happening for weeks over multiple iOS and app updates.

Furthermore, the feedback link from the app only offers the simplest FAQ style answers, and does not have a working “nor what you’re looking for link” to try to contact someone or solve the problem on my own. I’ve tried in multiple browsers.

WNYC is hands down the best public radio in the country, but the app is lightyears behind in quality.

Allow Paste Pop Up

WNYC is an informative app but I’m about to delete it for one very important reason. It keeps locking up my iPhone 13 Pro with a Pop-Up asking me to ‘Allow Paste.’ I never even copied anything and where would I paste it in a news app? It does not go away and I cannot get out of WNYC app. When this occurs I have no choice but to restart the phone. Apple has no other feedback or app support besides the negative app review process so it’s your problem or loss if it never gets fixed.

Still Kicking

Feb 22, iOS 15.3, no problems at all, and nicely organized with some well-thought-out on demand features for folks who have a favorite show or a music genre to explore. Also much appreciated is the absence of ads, mountains of streaming ads/support, etc. For some reason while listed in the group of stations there's no link to regular WQXR so you have to use the QXR app for them. Recommended. PS Support public radio.
