Works as advertised, at times has some issues
I have been using this app since August 2014. Overall it functions as advertised. I am generally satisfied. However, the iPad version at times unexpectedly freezes, ignoring repeated attempts to switch channels after the favorites panel remains open for a period of time, say longer than 15 minutes. Haven't noticed the same glitch on the iPhone. If a favorites selection is made and the panel "dismissed", I haven't had this issue. This defeats the purpose of the "favorites" panel entirely. The quick resolution is closing the app and relaunching. With patience, the app realizes the user is attempting to awake it and slowly jumps to each of the last finger presses on the screen in sequence like having a mind of it's own. No other app has this peculiar behaviour. Other reviews mention sporadic stream interruption or connection issues, but I have not had that experience. The GUI layout on the iPad could be improved, specifically the small area for displaying an artist or band's biography/history.
Doing better, still needs improvements
The app is lackluster, if you want to stream a love station it works well most of the time if you are stationary. Throw in moving, network changes, listening to the previous few hours of programming, etc and there are problems. The biggest problem I have found with the current version and which I received no response to my comment. Is that when you "download" shows from channels like Stern, Opie & Jim, etc. after you "delete" them they still occupy space on your app and consequently your phone. I work a lot in areas without service so I download shows and listen with minimal interruption as I go to and fro so this is an issue. If you uninstall the app, shutdown and restart your phone and hen reinstall the app the memory is freed up. Not sure if this is an iPhone problem specifically. Also your listening to "downloaded" shows can get interrupted when the app loses a connection or just randomly so that is fun to deal with as well.
Doing better but still needs work
Would give it five stars because of the SiriusXM offerings, but this app loses connectivity too often, telling me I have a slow connection. Uh, no, I don't. I am on the fastest possible at a university and other apps are flyin'. Very frustrating and usually happens every day. I listen to a couple different shows each day and I do appreciate the OnDemand feature so I can catch up when I miss something. Customer service peeps are either not too smart in understanding what is wrong or they are just given a script to try to put the onus on the customer for doing something wrong rather than trying to address a problem. I just want to listen to the app I pay a lot for, ya know? You guys need to get some good developers so the app is updated -- and client service who preferably understand English and do not give canned responses. If Howard leaves, the other shows I listen to may not be worthy of renewal. But I am hoping you can bring this app up to snuff!
