So far so good
I had deleted a previous version of the app because it kept cutting out, and I had gone to just listening through the mobile site.
I decided to give the app another chance, and so far it’s working well.
So, I wasn’t the only one,,
I’d had the same problem with the broadcasting being cut off or too many station announcement popped up way too often to disrupt the broadcasting. I had contacted WVXU tech person to correct this problem. It got better for a while, but the problem did come back. So, now I totally gave up on to listen to NPR through WVXU, but am listening now through NPR web page which is so much better than WVXU’s.
Great content, poor tech
I enjoy NPR/WVXU but this app cuts out far to often. At first I thought it was my iPhone, so I got a new one and it still happened. Then I thought it was my cell provider, so I got Verizon and it still happened. I thought maybe I should just use it with WiFi, so I did and it still cut out. Sometimes it happens so often I just close the app. I don’t have this problem with other public radio apps.
