    WMOT (Middle Tennessee State University) Only perpetually repeats a welcome notice, no music & WGLT3 stops on error. Wish you had more public Jazz that worked. Classical is good but free Jazz radio is harder to find in general.

    Right before a run at home, I'll quickly download a few shows ( or just one TED Radio Hour) while I'm changing. Simplicity is its biggest feature!

    Latest update actually broke more than it fixed. Podcasts no longer get marked as played like they used to.

    I don't know what has happened to my favorite app! I listen to KDHX all the time and now all it does is say "stopped in error" WTF???? Along with half the other stations i try to listen to. Please get back to me about how to fix this. I also called the radio station to ask them why? I really love this app and would like to give it a better review.

    Two of my favorite stations, KQED and WNPR, consistently drop off for no apparent reason. Very frustrating.
