    This app truly shows that RNZ has come of age and will be with us for decades to come.

    Lots of great content but sometimes it won't play and just says 'Buffering'. Tunein app always works so I keep going back to it.

    The writing is much too small. Downloads un-download themselves. I love RNBZ but their old app was much better
