Delivers but could use improvements
Ok so it works fine and doesn't crash. If I switch between wifi and LTE or visa versa it does a slight buffer. But then picks right back up. Their biggest issue is that they don't streamline their commercials very well. As the radio station takes a commercial break this app plays its own commercials. Sometimes they repeat several times in a row or skip one half way through or just cut as soon as the station program is back on. Not that I want to listen to a full commercial, but the repetitiveness is kinda annoying. Probably has to do with the fact that CBS has separate contracts for their actual radio stations than they do for this app. The buffering people complain about I have not experienced, maybe they have a low broadband or bad cell connection. Although, it will have buffering because of the delay from live radio to this app due to the frequency conversion, upload/download streaming time and this app being web based not software based for the phone, as most are. The Siri issue works fine, and most likely caused errors for the people below due to an iOS update that was needed for Siri to seize the mic/speaker feature of the phone which works fine now. All in all if your like me and need a little Kevin and Bean show in the morning on KROQ then this does quite well.
Need to really fix advertisement bugs!
The latest patch seems to have cleaned up most of the issues, I've changed my rating from 1 star to 3 star.
I've listen to this app for about a year now because I love certain radio stations but the issues are absolutely brutal.
Ads playing over eachother. The same ad. playing 10x in a row. A station coming back from break and then instantly cut off by another ad. Commercial breaks that last 45 minutes. Ads playing over the radio content. The app stopping playback whenever I minimize.
The issues which almost all revolve around advertisements leads me to suspect that whoever runs this app is completely ok beating us over the head with broken ads and the lack of effort to fix the issues is extremely frustrating. Not a quality product at all. The one star I give them is because I like the station content.
Ads play over radio content
This app has always been bad but they seem to have resolved some of the buffering issues. Now there's an issue with incredibly long commercial breaks that repeat the same ads over and over again, AND the ads play over the radio station's content - terrible! I was listening to my favorite station and right in the middle of a story the app flipped over to commercials. If there was another way to stream my favorite radio station, I would happily delete this app.
