What's New in Version 2.2
App redesign and enhancements
Battery Killer - Remove from Tray When Done Playing
I've always enjoyed having access to WSB Radio on the go and previously would have ranked the app a 3 for most of the reasons mentioned by other reviewers (cutting out, crashing, etc.). Unfortunately, I opted to update the app last week hoping that it would fix the bugs. It may have fixed them but the new app is soooooo much worse. It is a pure, heart and sole battery killer. So much so, it's as if it was developed just to drain the battery, even when it's not streaming, and the web player was a bonus.
Since I upgraded to the new version last week, my phone's battery can't even make it through a full day with very little use. I only listen to WSB for about 30 mins in the morning and then stop it before leaving the house. However, as long as the app is sitting in the tray, it is draining the battery. For the last 2 days I have removed the app from the tray after playing and my daily battery usage is back to normal.
Be warned, if you upgrade or install this new version, remove the app from you iPhone's tray every time you are done streaming. I wish I had the old app back, bugs and all.
Disappointed that this app's upgrade is still not acting as a real "streaming app" that takes the place of the music player to utilize standard controls like either Pandora or the default Apple Music app do -- in fact it interferes with them when trying to play the stream or when attaching/disconnecting my iPhone from my car adapter. Also, the new screen bouncing back and forth from bright white to blue and back constantly is extremely distracting when driving - it lights up my car at night. Play button is hard to select on the far left side of the screen now. I love the station and listen whenever I'm in the car (or while working outside), but you guys seriously need to switch developers for your streaming app.
It is so nice to have the ability to hear this radio station through my iPad and iPhone! The app works great!
I don't know what all the complaining is about....?
You hit play... And its up! I think some people don't understand that you are streaming something live... So you have to have a good connection... I this some people just like to blame the app instead of their connection or their equipment.
Great app! Keep up the hard work and updates!!!!!
