Customer Reviews

App needs an update.

I love the CBC, and I have this app so I can listen to the radio as I go about errands and work. This inevitably leads to my phone moving in and out of different wifi networks and my 3G network. Everytime this happens, playback stops completely, until I refresh it by clicking through every setting for my local stream. This app has a feature that is supposed to switch between low- and high- quality streams, depending on the network connection. It hasn't worked for at least one update; I need to manually switch to these streams. To make it worse, every time the phone connects to 3G, a warning message appears and prevents all playback until I acknowledge the warning. This is frustrating and massively inconvenient.

Please update this now. It has gone on for far too long.

*Post-update review*

In the new version, the auto-switching feature does not work. Selecting auto switch invariably means listening to a low quality stream, with the high quality stream working only when auto-select is off.

Moving between wifi and 3G for data, playback still stops until I unlock my phone and navigate to any page in the app.

Seriously: fix this.

Newest update: Auto-switching finally works, and the playback is maintained without needing a refresh. The downside: the app is suddenly using a huge amount of battery.

Audio disappeared with iOS 7

Listened regularly with my iphone because the sound was so much better than my scratchy old radio. Upgraded to iOS 7 and IF I can even get a show or streaming program to play now, the audio is completely gone. Very disappointed. Especially miss the morning news... This has been more than 2 months. The recent update didn't help at all...

Very intermittent.

This app is constantly dropping off and losing audio. Very frustrating when you're listening to talk radio. Needs significant improvement.
