Broken and update loop

App freezes then crashes on launch. App store says there is an update even after updating.

Update: seems to be fixed now.

Love it!

App is clean and displays recently played songs. This is great when I am at work and hear something I like but cant make it to my phone to see whats playing. Check it later, no problem!

I'm a listener from Baltimore and sometimes my FM radio cant pick up the station so this app is a great alternative! We don't have anything like WXPN down here so I am forever grateful!
