What's New in Version 1.2.3
Too much advertising when you switch on
I've heard about Adobe so may times as the first thing I currently get when I turn on radio is a mind-numbing over-long Adobe advert. It's so frustrating. Why not intersperse short ads from time to time rather than send the listener to sleep straight off?
Beyond that, Radio is ok if you get through to it but Live TV is better. Also I'm in London so I don't need so much local US info at the start of the U.S. Day. Perhaps there is a way to manage this but I haven't yet founded it.
Good but still...
It's good to have BBG news.
But there are still a few serious issues:
- why does this app exist at all ? Why can't we listen to BBG radio through generic radio apps like TuneIn for example ?
- why are there always all these ads so often ? With the price we pay for BBG Professional, can we not have a radio with fewer ads ?
- why can't we decide to download automatically certain parts of the program, like podcasts, to be able to listen to it offline ?
- why is BBG radio not available in Apple's Podcast app ?
Too much irrelevant news and ads
Guest speakers are interrupted all the time with stale news broadcasts including sports and weather. Not interested in stale news, just the guest speakers.
