Radio NZ App
Back in Jan I was very happy with this app but over Christmas/NY I've been very disappointed. No prog updates for over a week!! I've uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. The hourly news and sports podcasts have not been available for nearly a week - unacceptable! Has RNZ only got one person capable of content maintenance and, what? They've gone on leave with no one else able to keep content updated? Very poor. Very disappointing. It took a long time for news and sports podcasts to be uploaded in full and not have the end cut off; RNZ needed listener feedback to point out the need for this. Please RNZ keep content up to date whether it's the holiday season or not!
I've been using this app since it first came out. Occasionally it drops connections, but that's what happens with live streaming. Mostly it's fine.
Wish it was a universal app though - I use it mostly on my iPad, and the interface isn't suited to a device with a larger screen. Perhaps that could take their lead from the iPAd interface for NPR
Good Except for One Issue
When attempting to view available content in the Programmes or Features screen the content is usually several days old and my device appears to try and fail to update it. Otherwise everything works really well. It would be nice to have news to view in the app, but it's easy enough to view the RNZ site from Safari.
