    I love vocalo! But I can't listen to it through this app...so much potential, but absolutely no functionality. :(

    Nothing is up to date and live streaming won't work. What's the point? One star for Vocalo being awesome.

    I'm often getting an error message, " Unfortunately Vocalo has crashed". Even when I hadn't even started it since the last time I booted my phone. Sometimes repeatedly. I may try uninstalling and reinstalling. But for now, I don't use it enough to bother, and am just uninstalling.
