It works, sort of

If you are stationary on WiFi, the app works. It won’t reorient when you turn your phone or iPad, which while incredibly lame, is tolerable.

But try using this app in a moving vehicle and you will see how poor it is. Every time your phone moves from a cellular to WiFi connection, the stream stops, replays it’s little intro speech, and then starts up again. Don’t think your phone jumps from cellular to WiFi often? Try using this app and you will soon realize it switches often.

No other streaming app I have does this. It makes it pretty much unusable in the car unless I turn off WiFi.

The man who never was ,

Not the best

Works fine on Wi-Fi or cellular, but not both. If you’re on Wi-Fi and go for a walk beyond Wi-Fi range, it’ll just spin and spin saying it’s buffering when you know it’s not. Eventually it tries to blame the problem on the stream, which is completely false. The only remedy is to manually close the app and restart. And sometimes that’s not good enough - there have been times when I’ve had to physically shut down the phone and then restart it because it would just get stuck on the grey screen and simply time out. I have another app I use for another stream and it doesn’t have these problems. Oh, and if you’re listening wirelessly and take out one earbud to talk to someone for a couple minutes, it can’t restart then either. Surely WUNC could do better, but the button for support just takes me to their home page, where “support” means giving them more money.

Please Fix

This is the only thing I listen to to get news. I pop my headphones in in the morning before I get out bed to listen to the news( Hubble sleep an hour longer than I do)
But now it cuts out/ buffers ever few minute. It’s usually right before the key sentence or clip in a story. I hate it.
Please fix the problem. It wasn’t until about a month ago.
