Hard Breaks are Annoying!
I used to love this app and would have given it at least four stars. But recently it started using hard breaks for commercials. Now the DJs get cut off mid-sentence all the time just so we can hear a commercial. It’s so annoying!!! It’s bad enough we get less than ten minutes in between commercials as it is. Now we have to miss part of the discussion due to hard breaks. And as I write this I’m listening to the app...and they just said “WMAL is all about the conversation.” Obviously it’s not if you can’t even hear it all. Additionally, what’s with playing old clips out of the blue? Why am I getting a hard break in January to hear tips on Christmas drinking? Or a clip of Larry O’Connell during Mornings on the Mall? Get it together or this app is history for me!
No more Zero Res!!!
Randomly stops playing any time but the worst is RIGHT iN THE middle of a news or traffic update, and when you try to turn it back on it goes back to that STUPID Larry O’Conner Zero Res commercial that plays EVERY SINGLE TIME I TURN ON THE APP!! Enough already. Seriously WOULD NEVER use Zero Res JUST because of the advertising on WMAL!!!! Come on. Make your app just PLAY and don’t have it constantly spool or randomly quit. And when it restarts it should just go immediately back to the real- time broadcast. This is enough to make me stop listening to the app on my phone, which I normally do every morning. I’ll need to find my news elsewhere because I’ve had enough of Zero ReS!!!! Who cares about Larry’s stupid wine spill ???????
Needs so much improvement
I LOVE WMAL....but the app is just terrible, so it makes listening a frustrating experience. It drops constantly, and when you restart it a second later, you are forced to listen again to an ad (love you Larry, but don’t need to hear the carpet cleaning ad multiple times an hour as I reboot the app). Listening to Podcasts is even worse...drops constantly, forcing restart. And there is no ability to pause the podcast and come back where you left off. As soon as you even touch the screen, it shuts down and does back to the beginning. Please fix these issues! I want to recommend this station to my out of town relatives, but won’t if this is the only way for to access the shows.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
