Ratings and Reviews
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 way to listen to my favorite station!
Since discovering WVXU, I am an everyday listener and the app is what I usually use to listen because it goes where I do without requiring an actual radio. I especially enjoy being able to listen with my earbuds so I’m not bothering others in my household if they’re involved in something else. My only disparaging remark is that sometimes my feed is interrupted for unknown reasons.
Not sure what that’s about but it’s not enough to keep me from using the app!
The App is needlessly burdensome with time of loading and number of clicks
When you click on the icon, there is needlessly long wait for the app to load. Then when it opens, after you click play, you must quickly move to the opposite side of the screen and click skip so that you don’t have to wait through advertisements. These two negatives are not necessary. For instance the KCRW app loads much more quickly and does not require you to hit skip to avoid being exposed to a series of ads. I fervently hope that the powers that be a WVXU will simplify the WVXU app so that it is much more user friendly.
