    The app used to (partially) work. Now, it just won't play anything at all. Pathetic.

    In spite of the complaints of others, the old version of the app did streaming very well on my Moto X phone. After the update, the stream pauses every 90 seconds and starts back up 8 seconds later. Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help. Now I will just remove and hope that the problem is corrected with the next update or that they go back to the old version.

    The app has closed on me unexpectedly twice within about 30 minutes tonight! This is not the first time it has done it either. I love programming of TPR, but live in a different city. This thing is my connection to everything TPR. Please get these things fixed or go to another to host your programming. This app sucks.

    Love this app! I was able to listen from across the country because I knew my TPR schedule.
