    Don't know if it's the network or just the app but it cuts out repeatedly. Multiple bugs still

    Does what it should do, but needs Chromecast support.

    Everyday around 11am EST the app crashes. When I'm listening to it at night, nothing happens. Only between 11am and noontime. It crashes about 5 times on Fridays during the 'crazy' hour. *sigh*

    The alarm function on this app is super-buggy and inconsistent, but otherwise perfect.

    This would be a great way to listen to WBUR when on the road, but I see no way to stop the streaming and close the app without forcing the close. Who heard of such a thing? It seems like something so basic, and this seems to be a common complaint. I'll likely uninstall this app.

    Nice graphics but slow, inconsistent and not fully intuitive. Delayed from broadcast slightly
