Customer Reviews

Love WBEZ, app needs improvement

I like to use this app a lot, when working out or puttering around the garden. I have a few problems with the app.

When I have to pause or get a call and the stream stops I have to close down the app totally to get it to play again. Also, lately it just says 'play back not working try again later', it doesn't work later either.

I hope they get these glitches worked out.

App restarts

I use this all the time and constantly have to restart the app as it goes silent while continuing to show activity on the volume meter. This has occurred regularly with the older IOS and the new apple ios10. It also doesn't matter if I am on my home network or a hotel network. Also, where is the app volume control so you don't have to use the device volume control?

Great app (but needs some improvements)

WBEZ, a great public radio station, offers a great listening app. Download, listen, donate.

There's no Search function. Browse tools are locked to either random order or alphabetical.
When browsing all the show artwork is downloaded fresh _every_ session.

The app's developers assume users have a constant high-speed connection (the developers must or they would have found problems).
Sure you can download for listening but without a fast connection the process is cumbersome and even confusing.
