The primary use for this app for me is to watch the Newshour at times other than when it is broadcast. However, the app doesn't keep the phone on while streaming thru AirPlay, so the program shuts off periodically. Unless you tap the screen to convince the phone you're still using it, it goes to sleep (however you have that configured on your device).
It is a simple setting that the app needs to change in order to prevent the phone from going to sleep during streaming. Until that is fixed, I don't find much use for this app.
I appreciate being able to watch the full video of the Newshour as well as other videos in this app. However, it has too many design problems and bugs. The audio stops when the app is in the background. If another app with audio is used, going back to this app can mean no return of audio. It does not remember how far a video has been played. Frustrating on a daily basis. Just getting a text message during playback means that your video will stop playing. Urgh.
I used to contribute annually to PBS, in significant part for the NewsHour, but no more. This app is nonfunctional, hijacked by incompetence and ads (ads!) that never stop loading. When I dropped my overpriced subscription to Comcast cable television, I retained my subscriptions to the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. I access all of them as easily and routinely online via my iPhone and computer as on paper. Not so with PBS, where overpaid and complacent executives evidently are milking goodwill built up over years while obtusely ignoring the needs and opportunities of the present and the future.
