One of the better apps in the Radio category...
...in so far as having fewer audio nag interruptions for upgrading, than some (such as the annoying Calm app). This one relies on mostly palatable, visual, pop-up ads. Occasionally stops playing (as these streaming apps sometimes do), even when on WiFi with a strong, fast signal.
Most aggravating is the inaccurate search function for putting together similar songs to create your own mix of music to listen to... for example, a search on "Gregorian" (as in chant) will return an amazing number of "stations" playing numerous things that aren't even remotely considered as such. This can be problematic, since the app also has a limit per day AND per station on how many songs you can skip, that grate on your nerves. You'll end up spending many days and hours hitting the thumbs up/down buttons and changing stations, trying to cull the crap and keep the better nuggets, before a decent mix slowly starts to emerge. (Hopefully others will have fewer problems with different types of music than this example.)
Will keep the app for now and hope it improves.
Lousy App with Inconsistent Content
I'd give it ZERO stars if I could. They took a buggy app that crashes, and introduced startup/channel change advertisements that delay getting to the program. The app also constantly suffers from buffering and sometimes refuses to restart playing audio after concluding a phone call. I also love touching a radio station's start button to resume playback but nothing happening. I've come to the conclusion that Clear Channel must not care that their app has these issues since I've been telling them about these problems for several years.
More important is that channels like KTRH are running commercials when the show has resumed for over-the-air listeners (that's assuming the stream is working at all). Further, app stops playing content for no apparent reason even while connected to WiFi. When tested against iheartradio on the computer (using same connection) the stream is playing on the computer, so the problem is with the app.
Luckily, the content I enjoy is not limited to Clear Channel stations. Clear Channel should hire competent developers.
Better than Pandora in every way except...
The fact that on Pandora you can go back and check the previously played songs while iheartradio you have to see it / like it immediately, because there is no way to view your listening history. iHeartRadio listen to your consumers and make that fix and add a way to view your recently listened to songs on whatever station you're on and you'll be #1 by yourself as far as radio apps go. Otherwise it's a great app where you can change the song even after you hit the skip limit by going to another station then going back to the station where you hit the skip limit (looking at you, pandora!). Also, this app has less ads then pandora and doesn't ask you if you're listening. But like I said just add a way to view listening history and we will be extremely pleased. Peace
