Slightly problematic app now available unusable
Old version had the tendency to hang on to the audio out channel such that other audio apps were not able to take control - so I often had to kill this app to listen to other audio apps, rather than just app switching. That seems fixed but to the other extreme.
Now when I navigate away from the app or lock the screen the audio stops. If I need to keep the app active and running and it doesn't support background playback the it's pointless. Il playing silent games often or reading email while listening to the radio.
The launch forced video commercial on top of the existing in broadcast commercials is too much - you really want to drive away listeners that bad? But given it won't play when I app switch, that is the least of the problems with this new version.
Over use of ads
I thought it was a good app. It got me the stations I wanted to listen to. But the app would stop in the middle of every song and play two or three commercials before the song would play again. And by that time the song was over already. It wasn't as if it was the commercials on the radio station. It was ads from the app! That's crazy. It should not be cutting of the song and people only getting about 30 seconds of the song! I will never recommend this app to anyone.
Don't download new version!
I used to be able to go direct to my fav station. Now, not only am I forced to watch a longer ad, I have to choose the station first. Why? I heavily regret having updated the app. And if I try to put the app in background during the ad, it can hang, which means I have to restart again. Lesson: do not update unless you have to: most updates from any app are meant to give more ads or collect more data!
