    The only thing this app does reliably is crash.

    *Update* App was updated after almost 2 years and now streaming works (at least for me)! Also love access to previous programs. 5 stars if stable. Same complaint as everyone else on here. Just doesn't stream. Every once in a while it will work and I continue to waste more time trying it in the hope today will be the day it behaves and plays. Bad sign that they haven't updated since July 2013! *Tip

    Doesn't work. Downloaded it 2X but it never loaded properly - just a blank screen with logo at top and streaming player at bottom

    The app has had ups and downs through the versions, and I've tried to stick it out, but this really is the worst. I expect better from Boston's NPR news station. WBUR: if you're not going to invest in making regular upgrades to functionality (the app feels old and basic to begin with), please at least fix the app to a basic functionality level.

    Does not work on the new version of Android with the HTC One m8. I love wbur and I used to stream this app all the time, then it just died. -- As of 3/12, not fixed at all, it never works. Come Aaahn!!

    News stories do not update. Streaming connection takes minutes to connect, drops out. App won't stop when I tell it to, then crashes when I want it to keep going. Just bad.
