Ratings and Reviews
Apple CarPlay availablilty
Good app overall, just need availability of apple CarPlay uploading.
Very good, but room for improvement
The clarity is great and the delay is almost non-existent, but it will drop from time-to-time even if there is no change in reception or network strength (1st big thing) and the other big thing is that it drops when your phone goes to sleep. That needs to be fixed because if your driving you can't always be looking down to check if your phone is about to go to sleep. And then it takes a good 30-40 seconds to come back up after it drops. It's very frustrating, especially when you're trying to listen to a hockey game. Everything else about it is great, but those two things need to be addressed.
It's not just crap.... It's Crashtastic!
As lacking in features and functionality as the latest 'Windows 8 wanna-be' design for the main website. (The previous design was much better.)
Where are the show notes and links? Where are the Cochran and Kaplan show podcasts? Why are Carol Roth and Turi Ryder still showing up and current podcasts are slow to display? Why are the sound levels of some of the podcasts weak or inconsistent?
The live broadcast should be the only thing that streams. Podcasts should be downloadable and organizable In a playlist. Show segment title topics should be easily recognizable on a phone screen (within about the first 23 characters). A different image for each show personality in the podcast file would help to quickly identify and sort the list. Maintain a list for the current and previous week. Provide emailing capability for podcasts files. Users should not be forced to struggle with selecting podcasts one-at-a-time (or worse, restart a crashed app due to a weak signal), while their device is hooked up to a car stereo.
Now that the new talent lineup is taking shape, its time to refocus on the digital side. Please rewrite and stabilize the app.
This is not up to the standard of the WGN that I know!
