    Great app. One feature request though - Chromecast support would be good. At the moment I'm stuck using the buggy TuneIn app to listen to RNZ on my speakers.

    Nice cleanly laid out app that doesn't attack you with too much content. Can listen to the radio show as well. RNZ avoids the clickbait that dominates headlines of most other local news outlets, so a great experience overall.

    Really well thought out layout and development. It puts all the other news apps to shame. Congratulations RNZ.
