I want to use while driving but the ads force me to turn app off


Can you please make the ads more manageable for drivers pls.

I want to put phone in it’s dock hit radio x and drive away, as it is now when I hit the app I get an advert which can’t be closed for a few seconds and even if you let the advert play through (because you want to start the drive) the radio STILL doesn’t start without another screen press (can’t do that as I’m driving) this means that I end up listening to a local fm station on car radio instead.

Global, you already receive revenue from adverts in between songs, don’t be greedy and ruin the app with extra adverts too.

You want more listeners?, many like me would listen more if you didn’t create the app with extra adverts.

At bare minimum, if you really must earn extra money from app adverts then be sure that the radio kicks in automatically after the advert finishes.

This app should have been focused on getting more listeners and NOT extra revenue.

Good but not great

There’s usually a problem when you pause a pre-recorded show and then try to go back into the app and play it again, it will say error and you have to close it and start again.

For some reason it seems to stockpile recorded shows in the background, I had 7 shows downloaded which are circa 70mb each but the data the app takes up was at over 4GB! Have to delete the app and it’s data to start over.

The opening advert does get in the way of operating the app.

Ok App, Too many adds


I use the app in place of a digital radio whilst driving. It’s great to get the station everywhere I go, but the big problem is the ads. It never used to be an issue, but it’s now a real problem. I like to leave the screen on whilst driving so I can see the current and upcoming songs. This is no longer possible as as long as the app is open, it constantly redirects to the App Store. As I use it whilst driving, it’s less than ideal.

Good app overall, but close to getting deleted in place of my own library.
