Great news source - spotty app
I am a big supporter of OPB news, and I do enjoy listening to OPB on my phone using the app. However, it gets annoying that the app does not seem to stream the content consistently after the initial advertisement message upon opening the app and pressing the play button. I have noticed this problem come and go over the various iterations and versions of the app, and for a while it seemed as though it was getting better. Unfortunately, the most current version seems to be having problems once again.
Used to work well; now buggy
Used to love listening to the OPB app while walking or running errands. Unfortunately, in recent months, the pause button has become increasingly unreliable to the point where I sometimes have to RESTART my iPhone 6 to turn off the livestream broadcast!!! At best, I have to stop whatever I'm doing and unlock my phone, then turn off the stream in the app - instead of simply touching the on screen pause button - but even that doesn't work most of the time now. I routinely update to the most recent iOS, so it's not me, it's you. Please fix this so that I can again listen to my favorite radio station when I'm not at home.
Freezes Constantly, Drains Battery Fast
This is a terrible app. It constantly needs restarted. If I pause the stream, I have to completely close and reopen it to get it to start again. Sometimes the stream will not start after the sponsor message and needs closed completely and restarted. If it looses signal for any amount of time, it needs closed completely and restarted. Additionally, it drains my battery completely in less than 2 hours.
If you do decide to download this app, be prepared to be tethered to your charging cord all day, missing out on important information because you were busy rebooting the app.
