Hate to force you listen 20 seconds of ad

Ron in Phoenix

I love KJZZ, and NPR in general, and I listen it everyday in my commute to and from work, and at home as well.

However starting latest version, this app started to force you to listen about 20 seconds of station identification EVERY time you turn on the app or even from a temporary pause! Once I was listening to an interesting story and accidentally hit the pause button, when I hit the play button again, and 20 seconds later, the most interesting part already gone! I would give it 5-star rating if the stopped doing that!

Intermittent, random pauses


I’m a KJZZ monthly supporter and avid listener. I’d love to use this app often during work/other projects.

However. This app pauses randomly when another phone page is opened/scrolled. I’m on iPhone X.

I’ll keep trying to listen and see if it continues to happen, and will update my rating if it does not.

Working much better now

EDIT: the app now initializes and runs, a major improvement over previous (see below). My rating is raised from 1 star to 4. But the app doesn't quite deserve 5 stars yet, as there are still some bugs to work out. (For example, when switching from Schedule to News and then back, the bottom menu says Schedule, but the News view persists.) Also, I think a story needs more than two written paragraphs to qualify as a "news" story.

But these are fairly minor issues that, again, I'm sure they'll overcome soon. On the whole, I'm much happier with the app's performance now.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I keep getting the message that 'the app cannot be configured from the server', regardless of whether I'm on my employer's firewalled WiFi or 4G. I'm sure they'll get this sorted out quickly, but until then, one star for an app that doesn't work quite yet.
