It’s fine
by MrPoutyPants on 2021/10/19 18:13
It’s nice to be able to listen to radio shows a bit faster and skip the commercials but if I pause and exit the app it will constantly reset and go to the live feed and I have to go back to find my spot. Sometimes there will be segments of shows that are missing, not sure if that’s and issue from the station or the app.
Constant problems
by gWood87 on 2021/10/19 16:30
This is probably one of the worst apps I have used. It’s so bad for me personally that I’m doing my first ever app review for it. Constantly drops out for me (I know your thinking bad service but happens with full service in a 5G area all the time) also won’t load most times if I haven’t fully closed out the app so I have to fully close out the app and have it reopen constantly. I’m not talking after hours of none use either. Even after I go into a corner store for a minute. Really too bad because the sports talk station I like for my area doesn’t come in for me on the radio so I was really pumped for this app. It’s leaves me wanting way more every time I use it. It’s nice when it works but that’s about a quarter of the time.
Needs work
by bdred3 on 2021/10/18 23:50
When the Radio Station I listen to Says negative things about the App and the continuing problems with the streaming you know there’s a problem that needs fixing
Barely usable
by Subwayriderideride on 2021/10/18 19:53
Consistently playback will hang on live listening. “Rewind” function is even less functional than live listening. Audio will hang and requires restart from start of selected audio or complete app restart. I would listen more often if app functioned as intended.
Annoyingly buggy
by You pay me now! on 2021/10/17 16:44
You can set you watch by how often the app stops broadcasting. App requires frequent restarts. Browser version is far more stable.
Too many commercials
by frustrated with names on 2021/10/17 13:12
I listen while I am in the shower. I just listened to 20+ minutes of commercials. They announced a song, then when the song should have come on the commercials started and didn’t end until I was out of the shower. Plus a lot of the commercials are just repeated over and over. I will be deleting and going back to my iTunes. When there is music, or even the radio hosts talking, I do enjoy it.
AUDIO TORTURE
by blueg33 on 2021/10/16 21:57
Absolutely unlistenable. So few sponsors that the same 3 commercials (with the same VO talent) are played AROUND the clock, ad nauseum, often 3,4,5 times back to back, in every commercial break. Pure, unadulterated audio torture. Hate with the heat of a thousand suns. The fact that even 1 star is required to submit this review is an insult.
Needs a serious update
by loosebucks on 2021/10/15 21:25
This app was working fine until the latest update. When my iPhone locks the app stops playing which it did not do previously. When I restart, it doesn’t pick up where it left off and the time on the show is not accurate. Hopefully u have received similar feedback from other users and we see an improvement soon.
The good the bad the ugly
by Knownbyfew on 2021/10/15 14:17
The good is I get to catch the ONLY station I listen to on here because it’s not available anywhere else. The bad is whether I’m home on wifi or on the road (truck driver) this app since the station switched to it has ALWAYS and CONTINUALLY lets me down because it stops like it crashes interrupting what I’m listening to. I can’t go back using the 15 sec button because that doesn’t work properly and it takes forever then that stops. Continual buffering is a huge problem also. The ugly is you guys haven’t fixed this bug yet I’ve been listening over a year and it’s never been addressed. I know the station I listen to can’t be the only problem on here. There’s got to be other people and things they listen to going through the same thing. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE! (maybe my bad and ugly review parts should be switched) also I’m on spectrum wifi with the highest package no issues and my cell is on 5g with Verizon and a iPhone 12 Pro max so it’s not me.
App is bad
by lubber123 on 2021/10/14 20:20
I appreciate using an app to listen to my sports radio, however, sometimes it is more frustrating than it’s worth. The app often loses connection, sometimes for extended periods of time. I live in Washington DC and yet, even though I have designated dc as my area, I constantly hear ads for the south Florida and nyc areas. The app is difficult to navigate. Though I designated two sports stations and favorites, I still can’t find out how to easily navigate to my favorites and between the two favorites. The app needs work.
App crashes constantly
by mark494949 on 2021/10/14 14:47
Terrible app, just want to listen to one station and can’t do it because the app keeps freezing and crashing. It rewinds to an earlier time randomly so I’m constantly restarting the app to fix it. So annoying. Yes I already have background refresh on and it doesn’t help. Please fix you app and get a better developer
Never works
by Mattyz9 on 2021/10/14 13:16
This app is a joke. Can’t play for more than 10 minutes without disconnecting. Constantly buffers or crashes. Can’t listen to anything. Don’t bother with this, listen on other apps that actually work.
CarPlay Doesn’t Work
by dominick4233 on 2021/10/14 01:32
App is very slow and CarPlay doesn’t work at all. Very disappointing.
Good shows not user friendly
by BKWisco40 on 2021/10/13 19:34
I would use this app more if it was user friendly. It can be difficult to find shows and get them to play. The app freezes a lot or jumps to love radio when I’m listening to shows from earlier in the day. It so much easier to just get the episodes off Apple Podcasts.
Frustrating
by zmann4011 on 2021/10/13 19:20
I feel like the developers of this app must not use it for sports talk radio because there’s no way anyone who could change the app could put up with how poorly it performs. Please talk to actual users about the issues because I could send you an extensive list
Adds play back to back no stop
by eftarb on 2021/10/13 18:31
The same two adds will play back to back during the whole commercial break which gets very annoying after a couple of times
Horrible
by Djkneekap on 2021/10/12 20:20
Plays ads right in the middle of regular programming on talk stations. The SAME ads over and over. Absolute torture.
Constant dropping
by Gobyteme on 2021/10/12 19:00
This app crashes. A lot! Even with 3-4 bars of signal. If you have less, good luck. Makes it really hard to listen to when you are constantly reloading it. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Functional but interface is bad
by AtJa80 on 2021/10/12 17:07
When I open the app, I want to see my favorites. I want easy access. Not a bunch of suggestions for playlists and podcasts and other stuff I have no interest in. My favorites are my favorites for a reason.
Glitches
by evangball on 2021/10/12 14:22
Glitches and stops playing for no reason it’s not my connection because every other app works fine except for this one
Garbage app-Same ads over and over
by Guppie1976 on 2021/10/12 13:41
Update: still the same handful of ads that have been playing for months. I’m uninstalling this garbage. They play the same ads over and over and over and… Sometimes the same ad will play three times in the same commercial break. I can’t listen anymore
Annoying
by jdude6073 on 2021/10/12 12:33
Couple things: firstly, I don’t understand how you can boast about your rewind feature when you cut out multiple segments of shows. Secondly, your live on air ads cut into the live listening experience so much so that it’s better to just run 15 seconds behind and listen to the radio ads. Please fix the cutting out of shows issue.
Just plain buggy
by Clubnev on 2021/10/11 19:34
I use this to listen to 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland. I’ve been using this app for years from its inception on Radio.com to its present version. I have had the the same problem on my iPhone with all versions. When a bank of commercials are reached, the app has a mind of its own. It may pause. It may skip the segment and jump to the next segment. It may start the current show from the beginning. It may repeat the segment. One never knows what it will do. It’s been a problem for a few years. Now I pay attention to where it stops so I can slide it to the current segment. I’ve had help tickets with the technical Dept. The bottom line is the app has problems but I still continue to use it because it’s the only option I have to listen to this station. I expect it will always be buggy. Can’t say whether it’s a problem with the app or it’s integration with 92.3. I occasionally use it with CBS radio, with better results.
Great app, but storage is ridiculous
by GoBlue10 on 2021/10/11 19:22
So I love the app, but after listening to live radio a couple times, the app says my storage will take up ~60% of my phones total storage if I keep it! Not sure why, but that needs to be fixed or else the app is unusable.
App/Radio discontinues when app closes
by Chrisstanford50 on 2021/10/11 18:49
Prior to the most recent update I could listen to my favorite radio stations when I can put the phone to sleep or switch to a different app. This is piss poor now.
Audacy
by G$7007 on 2021/10/11 16:55
App is okay, but programming on live shows is absolutely horrible. I think someone should be able to schedule commercials so they don’t repeat 5 or 6 times in a row.
Needs improvement
by kpspkpsp on 2021/10/11 14:19
The 15 second rewind arrow will sometimes take you back to beginning of show or some other random place. Makes it impossible to go back to catch something important like an event date. Also the voices on the ads that Audacy plays to promote podcasts are juvenile and the content of said podcasts sounds insipid and trendy. I will look for another option.
Not consistent
by Zeemunee on 2021/10/11 14:16
Rarely a consistent experience when trying to load my station. Sometimes it works sometimes not. Then when it loads, sometimes it will just stop playing and I need to reload. Not a very customer friendly experience.
Turrible, just turrible
by AJ4Prez on 2021/10/11 13:31
Randomly stops playing. Sound just drops out. Jumps around in the time line. Total junk.
Continues to be a terrible app
by Kait1121 on 2021/10/11 12:04
Have seen some very minor improvements but overall this app continues to fall short. Listening to anything on demand, better not pause or the show will start over when you hit play. Sometimes it gets stuck in a loop just plays the same 3 minutes over and over again. I could go on and on. Terrible.
Time to clean house!
by Zel123 on 2021/10/09 19:38
Same crap listed in every review. The restart from the beginning after an interruption is ridiculous. Developer response is canned and means nothing. If the goal of the Audacy app is to piss off all the people that use it, then they have done their job. People that lead this company must have no clue if they are willing to put up with this lackluster performance month after month. An embarrassment in my opinion! ..and again we get the crap response. We don’t want a response, we want you to fix this crappy app! Doesn’t the leadership of this product care about the user experience? Aren’t they tired of haven’t a substandard product? Don’t you want something you can be proud of? Never mind, I think I know the answer.
Struggles to work
by Rpmiphone on 2021/10/09 14:35
50% of the time may be a little exaggerated, but it feels like half the time I open it up and turn on my favorite station it just never loads. Restart the app, same thing, then other times works fine. Pretty annoying user experience overall.
Awful
by 2fst4u2 on 2021/10/08 12:46
I wish I could give 0 stars, it’s terrible. It takes forever to load and randomly drops throughout the broadcast, don’t download it it’s bad
terrible
by meganelizabeth! on 2021/10/08 11:42
the app always crashes, constantly breaks up when people are talking. it’s very annoying.
Barely functional with Apple Carplay
by JTB2129 on 2021/10/07 21:20
dangerous to use while driving
Awful app
by Doctor Hobo M.D. on 2021/10/07 20:12
Crashes all the time, whenever I try to start a show over, it will get to the first commercial break and just restart itself. You can’t pause without it resetting the episode. Car play is horrible. I only use this app because it’s the only way to listen to 94 WIP. Oh and the location is always off so even if I’m in Philadelphia, I can’t listen to Phillies games because it thinks I’m somewhere else.
Spotty connection
by Arubadragon on 2021/10/07 13:47
My Iphone has full bars but this app will cut in and out for no reason. This has been going on now for over a month. I turn on pandora out of frustration and no problem there what so ever.
Fails to deliver basic radio function
by veteranyoungguy on 2021/10/07 12:32
If you like having to mess with your phone every radio segment download this app. Shows on 97.1 the ticket will not play continuously. They stop playing at the commercial breaks. When I try to continue playing a show by pressing play or skipping forward the previous segment plays again. This makes the app really frustrating and inconvenient to use. Radio.com used to do this sometimes but Audacy always does this and it’s been months since the change. I can’t understand why it isn’t as simple as turning on a show and having it play straight through, commercials and all. I hope the station will get rid of this format and go to simple daily podcasts but I’d settle for Audacy fixing its app.
Background listening removed
by glennQNYC on 2021/10/07 11:55
The latest version of the app removed the ability to listen without having the app open. Now you have to keep the app open to listen. 👎🏻
Junk
by 7386974 on 2021/10/06 19:24
Junk
Can’t Take It Anymore
by leanguy1 on 2021/10/06 17:44
For a long time this app would freeze for no reason. Sometimes the only way to restart it was to delete and reload it. An update reduced this problem and now I can listen reliably. However, now that I can listen to everything I cannot take the commercials anymore. The same ads play over and over and over at every break and many of them are promos for Audacy podcasts. Three days ago the same two promos played 4 times each at a break! Although I got this to listen to KMOX in STL I’ll find other things to listen to.
Great concept. Needs Work
by hehifhbsj on 2021/10/06 16:45
Love that you have the option to listen to radio across the country (it is 2021 after all) but it still needs a ton of work. Very glitchy and the pause option hardly ever works.
Not happy with it
by LordVyst on 2021/10/06 14:47
Not impressed at all. I use the app because I travel for work and like to hear my favorite morning radio show, and usually tune in late. The problem is when I get a phone call, not only does the app lose where I am at in the broadcast, but also crashes. And it’s a pain to get back to where I was at to continue to listen.
CarPlay issue
by Ana Serna on 2021/10/05 22:30
I’m having trouble accessing the CarPlay app. Menu won’t sload. 😡
Crap app
by fodus! on 2021/10/05 21:02
It’s so glitchy. Constant commercials that don’t apply to my area. I’m not Spanish. I don’t want to listen to Spanish commercials. I hope my station goes to a different app.
Terrible app
by Jdogg4677743346 on 2021/10/05 19:11
This has got to be the worst streaming app out there. It often cuts out in the middle of a show, doesn’t work easily with headphones or Airplay and sometimes I get what sounds like two streams at once of the same show.
Too many repeated commercials
by Acadog on 2021/10/05 10:55
Hearing the same annoying commercials every 3-4 minutes makes me turn Audacy off. I miss info I am used to hearing due to excessive interruptions.
Terrible timing
by Tdtdtddtdyyddyyd on 2021/10/05 03:33
The app constantly loses place when I pause and come back. It either jumps ahead or back to the beginning.
I don’t like the new update!
by MegaSteps1 on 2021/10/05 01:03
It’s an awesome app! But why am I not seeing what’s playing or the playlist of recently played on unowned Audacy stations?! It’s been like that for over a year! Tune in had an update regarding iHeart and seeing what’s being played. You add more stations which it’s great but can’t add on what’s playing. Can that be fixed??
Bugs, glitches, and useless.
by Junkman024 on 2021/10/04 22:55
Once interrupted by a phone call this rewind app option sporadically rewinds or fast forwards to a random spot in the show. Mostly goes live. The app should know how to save its spot. This is a reoccurring issue with every update since it’s inception.
Pause No Work
by Stodman5 on 2021/10/04 22:28
If you pause the app, it restarts the show. Really??
Audacy a broken product using iPhone 13
by JackStraw777 on 2021/10/04 20:38
I have already complained to Audacy about the rewind feature freezing at every commercial break. It is totally unusable unless you are willing to manually advance the program at each break. If you don’t do it at exact time the program will freeze. You then have to shutdown the app and restart. Don’t need this aggravation. Will just listen to podcasts. Never seen a more incompetent company than Audacy. Basically ruined the great Tune-In pro product.
Repeating Commercials
by Gbgarry on 2021/10/04 19:02
I love that I can listen to my favorite out of state radio station. However, it is beyond annoying that I have to listen to the same advertisement repeating 5 times during a commercial break and repeat during every break through the day. Fix this now!!!!
Absolutely Terrible
by J_Bar1 on 2021/10/04 17:33
Do you want to go crazy? Do you want to beat your head against the wall? Then this is the app for you! I’ve never left an app review before but this one was so terrible, I couldn’t resist. It’s just non stop commercials and they only play the same 3-4 commercials too! I swear I just turned it on and they played the same commercial 3 times in a row. Absolutely trash app. Listen to literally anything else.
Ludicrous
by honest and truthful. on 2021/10/03 19:27
The concept sounds intriguing, right? Another radio station streaming app. But why would you want to have local information dubbed over with information from hours away and even in different time zones? The whole reason you’re listening to the radio station just to have a local experience otherwise you were just stream music or podcasts without specifically lookingFor a radio station in a specific city. Another major failure, thanks.
Doesn’t play nicely with iOS 15
by EmmaJoy53 on 2021/10/03 14:06
Since I upgraded to iOS 15, this app no longer plays unless it is on screen. I can no longer listen to the Audacy radio when I am checking the weather or news. When my phone goes to the lock screen, Audacy stops playing. I’d be grateful if either Audacy or Apple might get address this! Updated review: Now, Audacy won’t play at all on my iPhone 11 running iOS 15. After several quits, it now gives silence even when the screen shows that it is playing. Although this app works fine on iOS 14, I have had to delete it from my iOS 15 phone. It’s frustrating, as one of my favorite shows is only available to stream on Audacy, and I can’t listen to it on my phone until you upgrade the app to work with iOS 15. I will try again after a week or two, but for now, Audacy is simply not usable on iOS 15. Please upgrade, I’ll revise this review when you do!
CarPlay is atrocious
by mihoffman06 on 2021/10/03 01:07
Please fix CarPlay. It’s borderline unusable.
App stream continues to stop and start
by south jersey dave on 2021/10/02 12:06
nonstop while using. Seems to have gotten much worse over the past few weeks. Not just one device but all devices I use. Not sure what changes they made but the experience has deteriorated. I appreciate the ability to listen to wfan wherever I am and I realize it’s free but it’s puzzling that remains inconsistent in its ability to just play without stopping and starting every few minutes.
Works, but the repetitive ads are infuriating
by Bobogado on 2021/10/01 14:30
This app works perfectly in the sense that I can listen to WSCR from Chicago when I want to. Because it’s a commercial station, ads are necessary. I get that. But what drives me absolutely nuts is how the same commercial is played over and over and over. And I don’t mean here and there. I have heard the same ad played five times consecutively. Or play an ad, play another ad, then the same two over again, and again.
REPETITIVE COMMERCIALS
by CFINK302 on 2021/10/01 13:17
I left one star for one huge reason, when using this app you will be tortured by hearing the same 3-4 terrible advertisements OVER AND OVER again. I’m talking you will hear the same commercial probably 12-16 times in an hour or less. I used the app for a couple weeks and it’s driven me crazy I can’t use it anymore . Please fix your advertisements that is my only issue with your app.
So glitchy
by Very Disappointed Doug on 2021/10/01 01:24
It's impossible to enjoy this - keeps freezing and going in and out. I switch to Sirius app on my phone and it's perfect every time. Wish I could listen to wfan elsewhere.
Fix your app
by n se jgkalms fnl on 2021/09/30 13:00
Crashes every single day - does not matter if you are connected to wifi or your cell plan. Does not matter if you have the most recent app or phone updates The app crashes every. Single. Day.
Refresher on / off button
by Sprucky33 on 2021/09/30 11:37
Refresher on/ off button constantly spins and turns without stopping. ☹️ app is not good… needs lots of work. I have a iPhone 11pro max and it’s works terribly. I listen to WAOK 1380am and it’s awful. So, I switch to my music apps. Please make repairs.
THE WORST
by Solange47 on 2021/09/30 00:50
If I could give -stars, I would. So many ads! All the time! The timed ads cut off the live newsreaders, so annoying. And the timed ads repeat constantly. Awful. I will no longer listen to this local station.
Still hit or miss on playback controls
by BRabbit_ on 2021/09/29 17:57
But I will give them credit. Had an issue today where the app stopped playing in the background. A quick internet search found a simple solution. So they got that going for them.
User experience is erratic
by Bill__2 on 2021/09/29 15:03
Playback is sometimes fine, but other times extremely frustrating. Program playback will sometimes spontaneously stop playing, at a commercial break or just in the middle of a segment. There doesn’t appear to be a discernible pattern as to when or why this happens. When that happens and you hit play to restart, it either will not start at all, or restarts from the beginning. When it decides to restart from the beginning even though you just want playback to continue from where it spontaneously stopped, the playback timeline incorrectly shows you’re restarting at the point it froze. Very aggravating. Also, sometimes the timeline slider will not allow you to move it at all. When that happens you have to pick a different program, and then go back to the program you’re listening to, or sometimes kill and restart the app. In either case you need to make a mental note of where you were in the timeline slider so you can get back to the right place after restarting the program or the app. The playback feature is a great feature when it works. When it doesn’t, the behavior it exhibits is very aggravating and is a bad user experience.
Terrible app
by Get Your Sh!t Together! on 2021/09/28 21:09
This app is the worst; it glitches all the time, if I pause it for some reason when I press play it will start from the very beginning of the show and I won’t remember the exact time of where I was, I can’t rewind during commercial? The only reason I have this app is because for some reason it’s all static on the radio.
Cool idea when it works
by JoKeZ I on 2021/09/28 18:36
Radio cuts out constantly. Podcast cuts out, switched to Spotify and haven’t had a problem.
Too many commercials
by mgkrsh on 2021/09/28 15:58
I have been listening for a few months, and now they r adding so many commercials. I counted 15 at one time, it was for Macy’s, Spectrum and Instagram. It was a loop. So 5 each of the same exact commercial. I’m deleting the app. I have no use for it.
Not just me Groundhog Day
by Georgeny on 2021/09/28 11:39
Once was the app now Killin me!!! Commercials every 2 minutes, same commercial over and over. I don’t even own a dam lawn. But now the stuck in commercial repeat until closed and reopened too darn horrific. If I did own a lawn I know who I wouldn’t use!!!!!!! Fix this or I bet many are gone!! iOS Apple x if that matters, it shouldn’t. I’ll miss it if you don’t fix it. But enough is enough.
Cuts out when listening to live radio
by porsava on 2021/09/28 10:19
This app has problems, way more than radio.com. I listen to WWJ news radio 950 and the app constantly cuts the news content and repeats the same annoying commercials. I miss so much! Very frustrating! What happened?
Cuts off broadcasts in mid sentence with commercials. Do not use! Listen to the radio instead!

Too many commercials!
Super glitchy especially using CarPlay
by urbanxplorer on 2021/09/27 22:22
I use this app almost every day to listen to local AM radio stations because the sound quality is better. The app usually errors out when first opened and freezes or crashes during playback. It’s a very frustrating experience. Please improve this app. Thank you!!
Never works on iOS
by Ken_Krause on 2021/09/26 20:48
Listening to radio and constantly cuts out. Stops streaming. Tried restarting app, uninstall/reinstall. This app has become so awful.
Commercials over and over
by Relayer2112 on 2021/09/26 15:05
Don’t get me wrong, I love listening to internet radio. It’s the commercial breaks I have a problem with. Commercials are a necessity, obviously. What’s not necessary is being forced to listen to the same three 30 second ads repeated a half dozen times during the same commercial break. This happens all the time in this app to the point at which I think the app is broken.
App constantly needs to be restarted
by dsanow92 on 2021/09/25 15:07
Playback freezes at every commercial when listening to 97.1 The ticket rewind episodes. When you restart it, 1/2 the time it starts a chapter you already listened too all over again. If you get a phone call, the app restarts and you have to start over and find where you were in the episode. Very frustrating. The app is very buggy!
TOO MANY REPETITIVE ADS!!!
by FrenetikMHz on 2021/09/25 13:45
Look, I understand yall need to play commercials to keep your app and your service free. But why is the ratio of content to ads like 2 minutes to 10? And if I hear the ace your retirement song one more time I’m going to scream. Doesn’t help that the only way I can listen to 93.7 the fan is this crappy service. How has iHeart radio figured this out but you guys haven’t?? Shameful.
Doesn’t work
by cosme.s on 2021/09/24 23:46
Hi, your app is trash and doesn’t work. Better luck next time.
Better with AM radio
by Wrh422 on 2021/09/24 11:29
Audacy app; should be the nothingness app. Constantly and consistently this third app takeover plays all commercials all the time. How irritating to TRY to listen to news with the interruptions bombarding the announcer. Never get to hear the full story. Purchased an AM radio; always count on an ol’ standby😊!
All ads all the time
by MaximumJ on 2021/09/24 11:20
I’ve tried to stream a couple of all news radio stations and all this app does is break into the middle of news stories with repeated ads every couple of minutes over and over again. The listening experience is at least 50% ads…the same two or three ads constantly. It’s ridiculous and unlistenable. I gave up and will delete it.
More repetitive ads than anywhere else.
by Richtennis on 2021/09/24 05:32
Had to stop listening
Very very good!
by Boweeeeeee on 2021/09/23 18:25
This is one of my favorite apps. It’s so inviting and easy to use. The content feels very personalized and local too. Well done! Some might say similar to XM and free! I’ll be enjoying this app for a while. Thanks!
WOW OMGG
by okayyywannabe on 2021/09/23 13:20
I just found this app today and it’s better then other apps but I wish the colors were black all black but it’s good app thanks I really love both kind of music Spanish and English 9-23-21
CarPlay adaptation is Horrendous
by Osoroshii Ryuu on 2021/09/23 11:38
Trying to use CarPlay with this app it’s just an exercise in patience. Content is very slow to load if it loads at all.
Repeat commercials
by Mohrt2 on 2021/09/23 09:32
I get that commercials are necessary in a free app, but to hear the same three or four commercials over and over again is maddening. Plus it feels like the actual time listening to the station versus hearing commercials is about 1/2.
Random repeated commercials
by basementguy on 2021/09/23 09:00
It will play commercials in the middle of a news broadcast ,then play another version of the same commercial 30 seconds later. It’s really annoying when you just want to get a traffic report.
Not working since update
by innersimplicity on 2021/09/23 02:43
Use this during my 45 minute commute to & from work every day. Hasn’t worked since update. Can’t get stations or podcasts. Incredibly frustrating!
Glitchy
by Furious George 88 on 2021/09/22 20:05
Is there a reason I can’t hit pause when listening and ever be in the same place again when I hit play? Every time one of my headphones falls out of my ears I end up fifteen minutes behind where I was. And then sometimes the scrolling button just stops working, and I have to hard quit the app to get back to where I was.
Doesn’t play in background
by Hantes on 2021/09/22 19:21
Since upgrading to iOS 15, app doesn’t play in background any longer.
Loved it until today
by nittany4 on 2021/09/21 17:30
Updated to ios15 this morning and when I put on Audacy for my lunchtime walk, it stopped playing when I changed apps to my pedometer, over and over. It did not do this yesterday. I tried to avoid looking at the pedometer, but Audacy also shut off when my screen weNt yo sleep. Audacy is now unusable on my phone.
Terrible
by hedwardc on 2021/09/20 21:19
This app is a nightmare. It seems to require constant attention. Almost impossible to listen to and drive at the same time. Wish I could give it zero stars.
Great app and great stations
by Robbie Stanton on 2021/09/20 17:33
Would love to West Virginia Radio Corporation, Townsquare Media, Adams Radio Group, SummitMedia, American General Media, Connoisseur Media, Educational Media Foundation, Emmis, Forever Media, Hubbard Radio, Midwest Communications, Renda Broadcasting, Saga Communications, Steel City Media, Stephens Media, Univision, Cherry Creek Media, and Way Media stations on the app next!
Frustrating
by Mountie78 on 2021/09/20 12:44
The news alerts put out by Audacy throughout the day are nothing but clickbait for their advertisers! Every time you open an alert it becomes an ad within seconds and is impossible to delete without also deleting the news alert. What a scam!
How does this have a 4.6??
by myb2020 on 2021/09/20 11:44
I have been using this app for a bit; more out of the like for a show than the loyalty to this pile. Connected to the internet or streaming Monday-Friday; doesn’t matter section and segments of material doesn’t play; Constantly skips or drops out. I also use Twitch for this very same show with zero issue and that app steams video! Only thing this app deserves credit for pairs rewind feature; but rewinding to hear the same lack of material just reminds me why I’m completely switching away.
Diminished “Upgrade”
by Who'sThatLady on 2021/09/20 10:48
As a daily user of the 1010WINS slot on the Radio.com app for years, I’m extremely disappointed with the frequency of daily intermittent “dead air” gaps of the replacement AUDACY app while the app reloads. 😞What the heck is the problem with creating an app that loads properly, then plays consistently?!? DEVELOPERS PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS, IDENTIFY AND CORRECT PROBLEMS WITH THIS APP! Thank you
Eh
by Foxtrilly on 2021/09/20 04:12
I listen to it for one sports radio show because I’m out of market, and its just too many ads, the app plays its ads the The radio show plays their ads, it’s like 10 minute commercial breaks every 10 minutes, if I try to pause for a while and then fast forward it won’t let me so I’m forced to hear the ads, if you leave the app for two seconds the app will refresh and when you come back to it will give you a long commercial break while whatever you’re trying to watch is live
Always cutting out.
by lil rock monster on 2021/09/19 16:16
I rarely leave reviews but this app is killing me. Every time I try to listen to a station I can get about 10 minutes of content and it cuts out. Then I have to reboot the app and play again, about a :30 process before it starts playing again. It’s very frustrating.
Way too many ads
by Rfsgyfdryfyhddddui on 2021/09/19 13:48
Way too many commercials in batches of 5 to 10 minutes
Repetitive Ads that cut off the news stories before completed
by amsjs on 2021/09/17 10:38
I only listen to one station on this app. I listen to it every morning driving into work. WWJ950. The number of times you hear the same ad over and over and over is extremely frustrating. It will sometimes play the same exact ad back to back three times in a row. Just lately, these repetitive ads have started cutting into the news stories before they are even finished. It’s not even close. It seems to cut them off about halfway through their story. I am about to go back to listening to the station through the radio instead of this app.
Excellent 4 out of 5
by Zitka019 on 2019/04/24 12:55
I would give this app a 5 out of 5 if it did not freeze as much as it does when the device sits in the same place. The other thing that needs to be fixed when looking for radio station articles or announcements the app will back u out or shutdown. I know it sounds big but it is not. It makes having to restart the app every hr or so when played for an extended time period a pain. Also when it freezes and it is the only playing in the background in office it makes it a pain because someone is always yelling fix the app which disturbs the entire office. Fix these two things and I’ll change to 5 out of 5. Thanks for the good one currently. Sorry one last thing does not effect stars. Please let listeners know when not going to have sports games streaming on it. Thanks
Lots of potential, but frustrating
by Pinstriped on 2021/07/04 16:31
I use this app primarily to listen to WFAN’s sports talk content. I could listen on the radio, but my schedule makes it more convenient to listen via streaming. I have two main frustrations: 1) is difficulty finding content, like Richard Neer’s Saturday and Sunday broadcasts, on the app. If I use the search feature in the app to search “Richard Neer” or “Neer” nothing comes up. So instead, I have to Google, put in “Richard Neer” and search thru several results to find a link that will bring me to his Audacy content, usually via an Apple podcasts link. This method usually works, but not always, and it’s cumbersome. Frustration number 2 is more serious: the app frequently freezes or drops out, especially at commercial breaks, and if I try to rewind during a delayed stream, the app often takes me to the live station stream, and it’s impossible to go back to find my place. For example, I was listening to Neer interviewing someone this morning, and I tried to hit the “rewind 15 seconds”’button, and it took me to the live stream. I have NO PROBLEM listening to ads - I know the app needs to get revenue somehow. So let us listen to the ads! Instead, when I get to the ads, the app freezes or crashes half of the time. Fix these issues and it goes to 5 stars; as is, it’s too frustrating to rate higher than 2 stars.
Great iPhone radio app, awful CarPlay implementation
by RafaKoy on 2019/12/18 23:22
I spend at least 3 hours driving daily. This app is the only one compatible with CarPlay that offers 1010 wins, so it was a no brained, but unfortunately the CarPlay implementation is more of a gimmick than anything. Favorite radios should be the first item in the list, that, or show them as icons immediately when opening the app, instead with have to browse trough the screen multiple menus to select a radio. We are driving remember? Where is the usability? The worst thing with this app however is the black screen I get 80% of the time when I touch the app icon on the CarPlay screen, the app works but the screen is empty. The only way I have to start listening to the radio I want is holding the phone and searching for the radio I want trough it, not the screen of CarPlay because there is nothing there. This is infuriating, and not an issue with my phone or car as I thought first. I tested it with my wife and kids iPhones (we all have different models) and our two cars, and it’s always the same issue. I tested it with a friend’s car and it’s the same thing. I’m pretty sure this is a great app as a stand-alone working with the phone, but please fix the CarPlay functionality.
User experience is erratic
by Bill__2 on 2021/09/29 15:03
Playback is sometimes fine, but other times extremely frustrating. Program playback will sometimes spontaneously stop playing, at a commercial break or just in the middle of a segment. There doesn’t appear to be a discernible pattern as to when or why this happens. When that happens and you hit play to restart, it either will not start at all, or restarts from the beginning. When it decides to restart from the beginning even though you just want playback to continue from where it spontaneously stopped, the playback timeline incorrectly shows you’re restarting at the point it froze. Very aggravating. Also, sometimes the timeline slider will not allow you to move it at all. When that happens you have to pick a different program, and then go back to the program you’re listening to, or sometimes kill and restart the app. In either case you need to make a mental note of where you were in the timeline slider so you can get back to the right place after restarting the program or the app. The playback feature is a great feature when it works. When it doesn’t, the behavior it exhibits is very aggravating and is a bad user experience.
Needs accessibility enhancements or improvements
by Themusicman08 on 2021/03/30 14:49
I download this app at the suggestion of a friend of mine. I like it but it needs some serious accessibility improvements. Those of us that use voiceover which is a talking part of the iOS need to know what we are doing and how to get favorites. Also, the pictures that are shown on the screen aren’t labeled properly so voiceover doesn’t know how to tell those of us who are blind or visually impaired what the object on screen is. I hope that the developers of this app will take this feedback and give it some consideration. Maybe even write a response back to this review. I would love to talk to them. Also, our speech says that there are buttons twice. Is this true? Or is this a bug in the application when it comes to using voiceover? I am not able to get in touch with intercom‘s corporate offices to speak to them about this application so I’m hoping that someone will read this review and get back to me as previously stated.
Too many bugs
by Tom in a truck on 2021/07/21 15:11
They’re lucky I didn’t give 1 star. I only use this app to listen to 1 station and it’s so inconsistent, I rarely waste my time. It automatically tries to play my favorite station when I open the app which is fine. But half the time, it fails to load. While casually listening, it’ll randomly freeze and stop playing. But once I hit pause and play, it resumes as if there wasn’t a problem. Other times, it’ll continuously run ads for minutes until I stop it. Other times while listening to a live stream, it’ll rewind itself to the beginning of the stream without warning me. I only realize it if I’ve been listening from the beginning and start to hear things I’ve heard before. These issues could be overlooked if it weren’t such a constant occurrence. I drive for a living spending 8-14 hours a day on the road and I can rarely get through a couple hours without an issue arising. I thought when they change to Audacy, things would get better but it’s the same app with a new logo
Tragically, my most used app.
by deeznutz19 on 2020/05/27 17:51
This is both my most used app, and the absolute worst app I use. I stream out of market sports radio (shout out 97.1 The Ticket Detroit). It constantly crashes. It gets stuck in endless commercial loops. It goes mute, to which the only option is to start the show at the beginning, fast forward 15 seconds at a time through hours of radio until it clicks back on. It randomly doesn’t play certain shows. The new wrinkle(I assume they added this as an April fools, and due to covid-19 just forgot to shut it off) is that it plays with no audio, and the only way to get it to work is to restart my device, delete and reinstall the app, rinse and repeat until it decides to play. If there are any alternative options for radio streaming out there, please someone let me know. I cannot understate what a simmering kettle of goat droppings this app is. It was terrible years ago, and continues to get incrementally worse with each update. Pure trash. I would happily pay a few bucks for a functioning app, especially considering how frequently I use said app.
New company , same garbage app
by SuspectDOA on 2021/03/31 13:48
I listen to talk radio on this app. I would say freezes between 10 and 12 times an hour for four seconds each time. Most times I pause to talk to someone or answer a phone call or make a phone call it doesn’t hold my place and resets. Especially on demand. When I listen to on demand it tries to skip commercials but ends up either starting the show over or replaying the segment I had just listened to. Which is a lot of fun when you’re trying to drive let me tell you. I also get caught in advertisement loops where I’ve heard up to 10 advertisements in a row before closing the app and restarting it just to get back to the live programming. Sometimes I’ll be listening to a show and receive a phone call and the app doesn’t restart where I left off but when I play the program back it’ll restart at the beginning of the segment or the entire show. Then I have to try to fast forward and find the spot where it left off. Which once again is a lot of fun when you’re trying to drive. And that’s if the rewind and fast-forward functions actually work because a lot of times the app says it’s not connecting and everything but the play/pause button is grayed out. When the app works it’s great and I love it unfortunately I would say that’s less than half the time I use it. 3 out of 10 in baseball is batting 300 and makes you an all-star. In the app world it makes you a failure. Please fix!
The good the bad the ugly
by Knownbyfew on 2021/10/15 14:17
The good is I get to catch the ONLY station I listen to on here because it’s not available anywhere else. The bad is whether I’m home on wifi or on the road (truck driver) this app since the station switched to it has ALWAYS and CONTINUALLY lets me down because it stops like it crashes interrupting what I’m listening to. I can’t go back using the 15 sec button because that doesn’t work properly and it takes forever then that stops. Continual buffering is a huge problem also. The ugly is you guys haven’t fixed this bug yet I’ve been listening over a year and it’s never been addressed. I know the station I listen to can’t be the only problem on here. There’s got to be other people and things they listen to going through the same thing. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE! (maybe my bad and ugly review parts should be switched) also I’m on spectrum wifi with the highest package no issues and my cell is on 5g with Verizon and a iPhone 12 Pro max so it’s not me.
2 months later....
by fhbgvduiytyu on 2018/09/30 07:58
I have previously used TuneIn before this app but since Enter-com Communications switched all of its stations over to their app it has made my life harder and looking at the other reviews I think others too. If you are going to switch apps 1. Please tell us you are going to switch soon so we have a heads up. 2. Make sure you have great execution of the app you are making and make SURE the consumers like it and that it works well. This app has connectivity issues all the time, sometimes it will say that it is playing and I can’t hear anything or it will play then stop then start playing again. What I do appreciate is the you release app updates often. If you can fix the bugs/crashes I think you will make a lot more people happy. To all companies and people out there. If you have something that works just fine, don’t switch things up. As he saying goes “if it isn’t broken don’t fix it”. I hope anyone who reads this has a wonderful day and don’t forget to smile. :)
Rewind feature
by DericAnzalone on 2019/10/19 18:58
I’m writing this review since I actually use this app daily now that the put the rewind feature in. Also, I only use the app to listen to wfan. They finally caught up to the times and made their content sort of on demand now with the 24 hour rewind feature. It works great, but the reason I made it 4 stars instead of 5 is the fact that when you pause it for more than a couple minutes, the app will not hold your place correctly. For example if I pause and come back after 10 seconds or so it’s fine, but if I pause the stream and come back 5 or 20 minutes later it will either take me to the begging of the previous segment, or the beginning of the next segment. It won’t just stay where i paused it in the middle of a program.
Great app especially as we walk during the pandemic and need content
by Chiguine on 2020/12/06 14:22
I was frustrated with tune in dad was looking for an alternative and I found this great app and service. It’s pretty reliable and not too glitchy and the features are fantastic including being able to access podcasts and stations and pretty much anything you want to have in your ears while you take long walks or long drives. I find it comforting to listen to something during the pandemic. Thank you The only thing I wish I could do that tune in let’s you do is to continue listening while an email or text pops up and you check but I still appreciate the service and give it top marks
Horrendous
by RyanP1121 on 2020/05/09 12:05
I unfortunately use this app all the time to listen to one radio station I enjoy. The rewind feature is broken frequently. Sometimes if I pause while listening to a show, as soon as I resume it jumps to live and I have to figure out where I was. Other times, I will start the app and an endless commercial loop will run and the station I chose will never start unless I close the app and re-open. It’s actually completely embarrassing that a company of this size and value can’t get the interface on their app right. It’s like the competition is twenty years ahead. This app is so brutal that it inspired me to write the first negative app review I’ve ever written. Since it’s the only way to stream the live radio I am looking for, I guess I will continue to use it, but it truly is an unacceptable experience. This company seems absolutely lost when it comes to making a great interface and useable app when compared to their peers.
Audacy Radio
by smcvicker on 2021/08/27 19:56
I used this when it was Rdio and then I downloaded when it switched. Although this app is many times more stable than the older one was I gotta say this. I’m REALLY disappointed in the commercials. Not in having them. But In every single break in my local market I’m being spammed with the same commercial over and over and over again. To the tune of as many as 5 or 6 times in a row I hear the same commercial. Every time they break. Either it’s Olivia Munn, or the being a dad, or now the newest one which is the whole rewind that they’re doing for 9-11. I totally get the self promotion aspect of the industry. But this is so much spam that I’m seriously done using this app. I can’t take the same commercial 50 times and hour. Either fix this issue or sorry. You lost a customer cause I’ll go back to radio. At least there I can hear a mix of commercials
I love it and I hate it
by ppatato on 2021/07/04 16:55
I love this app because I can listen to my favorite and my local stations, even when I am not in my home city. I despise this app because of the way it acts on my iPad. The jump to live button never works. It freezes constantly. Sometimes, I don’t use this app for a few days. When I return to the app, the app will pick up where it left off, even though I have disabled that function. I don’t want to listen to the news in my local area from three days ago, I want to listen to what is happening now. In order to do that, I have to power down my iPad, then power it back up so that everything resets on the iPad, just to listen to live radio. It’s more bother than it’s worth. And your pop ups are really, really annoying. If this doesn’t get better, I will be deleting Audacy and go back to SXM.
Doesn’t play nicely with iOS 15
by EmmaJoy53 on 2021/10/03 14:06
Since I upgraded to iOS 15, this app no longer plays unless it is on screen. I can no longer listen to the Audacy radio when I am checking the weather or news. When my phone goes to the lock screen, Audacy stops playing. I’d be grateful if either Audacy or Apple might get address this! Updated review: Now, Audacy won’t play at all on my iPhone 11 running iOS 15. After several quits, it now gives silence even when the screen shows that it is playing. Although this app works fine on iOS 14, I have had to delete it from my iOS 15 phone. It’s frustrating, as one of my favorite shows is only available to stream on Audacy, and I can’t listen to it on my phone until you upgrade the app to work with iOS 15. I will try again after a week or two, but for now, Audacy is simply not usable on iOS 15. Please upgrade, I’ll revise this review when you do!
Annoying
by Kennett Toolsman on 2020/10/23 15:52
The only way I can listen to my favorite talk shows is thru this app. I wish it weren’t so because this app is frustrating. It’ll stop playing for no reason and when I look at my phone I hope to see the play arrow but instead I often see the pause icon which would leave one to believe that it was still playing. I’ll tap the icon but nothing happens so to get it going again I often have to shut it down and restart. This has been happening even before the iOS 13 updates I fear that since they have a captive audience their commitment to quality is questionable. And now I have to listen to several commercials before they connect to the talk show so I miss a couple of minutes of dialogue and this happens even after I’ve been already been listening. I’d pay for the app if they would eliminate the app commercial.
Cuts out all the time.
by Oswaldtvermin on 2020/01/03 14:27
Buffers and cuts out all the time, and won’t reconnect. I have to shut the app down and restart. I don’t have this problem with any other streaming service. The only reason why I even attempt to use this is because WGR 550 decided to go to this inferior product. However my patience is dwindling. How hard is it to fix a problem everyone else seems to have perfected? Update 6months later What a surprise. Not working again this morning on either my phone or echo. Hire someone to fix this. It’s pathetic. Update: now it seems that commercials will kick in during the program! After the commercials then the program goes to commercial....so guess what? More commercials! I’m missing whole segments of sports interviews. Congratulations.. you did it..I’m going back to an AM radio. BTW there is no way this app has 4.6 stars. Read the other reviews.
Certain commercials play and it freezes my audio while listening to a station
by JonBarone on 2020/12/21 14:19
The past 2 weeks, certain commercials (JC Penney and others) cause my audio to freeze and I almost always have to go to the beginning of a program and start from the beginning, then try to find where I last listened. I understand that when an “advertisement” is playing, we cannot fast forward but we are being punished by the app/audio freezing after having to listen to the commercial... often the same commercial we’ve had to listen to more times that I’d care to remember, during the same show. Really a big negative for me, more because of the hassle of attempting to reset back to last listen.
Most used app I have. Also most annoying
by Joe Fillm on 2021/04/11 15:52
On one hand I love this app. As I go about my day I can have my choice of music, podcasts or especially talk radio going in my mono ear bud. On the other hand the way ads are arbitrarily inserted right in the middle of programs, often at key times in the discussion or interviews gets on my last nerve. Also the repetitiveness of the same ads over and over becomes nauseating. I often listen to WBT Talk Radio station where the Progressive Insurance tongue twister ad for the Name Your Price tool is played so frequently I cannot listen to it anymore and pause it. As a result I will NEVER consider Progressive for my insurance needs.
Awesome.. And... Not so awesome
by le.coopsta on 2021/01/05 15:32
Is it amazing that we're able to listen to any radio station from across the whole country, yes. And for that, thank you. I really do love being able to listen any time. Also, thank you for making it available for us to rewind. It's great not missing anything on shows whenever I have to pause during work. All of that said, this app is constantly buggy. The rewind feature is 50% at best. Most of the time it won't even let you rewind, and when it does, it doesn't let you go far enough back. Then randomly I'll be able to rewind further. It's just super inconsistent. Again, so grateful that this is even available. But it seems like it wouldn't be very hard to get it working properly.
Needs work. Doesn’t continue to play.
by Tiffersnola on 2018/11/08 13:19
TOO MANY COMMERCIALS I LITERALLY LISTEN FOR 8 minutes and still haven’t heard the actual RADIO STATION. Back to iHeartRadio. Sometimes I get a call and it obviously takes precedence over the app and when I end the call I go back to the app and the radio does not continue to play either on its own because the call ended or if I’ve pressed play. No matter how long the call was. Same thing happens if a video pops up on Facebook I want to watch, I have to kill the app and reopen it for each instance. Slightly frustrating especially listening to my favorite morning show. No offense but iHeartRadio comes right back on, but I would like to listen local so I use it in the morning even though Kidd Kraddick Morning Show is nationally syndicated and I could listen to iHeartRadio on another station. So come on y’all! #firstworldproblems
Difficult Transition between live radio and commercials
by NewWave_Girl on 2019/04/30 15:27
The biggest issue with the app is that it doesn’t transition well between live radio and commercials. I frequently miss important contest information and fun interaction from on air hosts. The host will begin talking or it will cut to the middle of already in progress talking. Then it completely skips to the next song. This can be very frustrating since this is the only way for me to listen to my favorite station. In addition, the app will appear to be playing at times but you can’t hear the station. Additional annoyances maybe unrelated to the app are strange, retro like commercials played between songs. I would rather have dead air than listen to them. I like what the app has to offer it’s just not as smooth as it could be.
Crashes frequently
by Len9917 on 2019/10/23 03:57
I like using this app to listen to radio stations I enjoy from far away and listening to podcasts from a local radio station. I really want to give this app a higher rating but the app crashes a lot, often after a short podcast (~5-7 minutes) is done when it is supposed to play the next episode, and sometimes it crashes in the middle of playing. I thought it may be my phone at first but I’ve updated it a few times since I’ve gotten the app about a year or so ago and the problem only seems to be getting worse. I wish it wouldn’t crash so much, it’s very frustrating to have to open it again, wait for it to load, go to my subscriptions, and find where I was only for it to crash again shortly after.
Terrible App, Stay Away If Possible
by darabian on 2018/10/19 22:14
In a world where most changes are touted as an improvement, here’s an example of it not being true. This app falls terribly short from the previous TuneIn app. The designers/decision makers seem to not understand why consumers use the previous product, and created an alternative that was good for the company but not the consumers who use it. Functionality is terrible in the following ways: 1) constant connectivity issues —-> it takes way to long to start playing and with no buffering it cuts in an out. 2) user interface is not helpful—> I push play and have to guess (or just wait) to hear sound.. it can take up to 30 seconds using WiFi. 3) if you miss a comment you can not go back 10 or 15 seconds to hear what was missed. 4) where’s the pause button? I received a phone call while listening to the Gary Parish show and missed 2 segments since I couldn’t pause the show. 5) and speaking of no pause option, what ever happened to buffering? I could go on, but I hope my point was made, and you stay away from this app. I’m sure this app saves the communication company money, but it’s at the expense of quality and functionality to their customers.
Cannot “pause/play” on lock screen
by DaghenamDave on 2019/06/29 20:10
One simple feature this app lacks that should’ve been a no brainer to be included is that while listening to a radio station using the app, and your phone is locked, there is no “pause/play” button available from the lock screen. You have to go into the app itself to access the pause/play button. This is extremely annoying bc I’m usually on the go using the app and when i want to stop the radio from playing i don’t like to have to go thru these extra steps, I want to be able to stop radio play from the lock screen. Pandora and iTunes have this technology of being able to pause or play your music from the lock screen so one would expect this feature to be industry standards but I guess not. This review is from an iPhone user.
barely adequate, but what are you gonna do?
by R_Chandra on 2020/12/23 20:11
Don't be surprised if you get frustrated of you're doing anything other than listening to the live stream of the station. If you hear something OTA, and want to continue to listen on the stream, good luck with that, you might have to listen to a stream-only ad first, this missing part of the program. The Rewind feature doesn't always help for that, because the recording sometimes has minutes of dropouts. Sometimes you tap on controls (e.g. pause) and it's ignored. Because of the dropouts, the fwd/back 15 secs sometimes jumps around by minutes instead of seconds, and is generally a mess. Since the company doesn't do a standard stream, therefore you need this app, what are you gonna do? Rewind IS nice...when it works.
Largest app on my phone!!
by Lovemylittlegirl on 2020/07/22 18:55
The app does what its supposed to do but after years of streaming i noticed that this app takes up more space that my photos and videos. Turns out that the station I subscribed to placed hundreds of 2 to 5 min podcast clips on my phone. No big deal right. Just delete all. Except, there is no way to delete them all. I have to swipe and tap EVERYONE OF THEM. Takes 5 seconds each. This is going to take days to clear up. Warning! Check the podcast area and see how many you have that are just eating up space!!!! Update: Very responsive customer support (added a star). The easy solution is to delete the app and reinstall. Then make sure not to auto download podcasts.
Why
by Princess Angela Dove on 2019/10/15 13:03
I just updated the app last night and the rewind & fast forward buttons are gone. Why?! And it says in the update that now there’s an option to rewind our favorite songs if we want but I don’t see those options anywhere. It made it easier to switch stations with the rewind & ff button, now I have to go to every station and click on it just to listen. Please put it back the way it was. I was enjoying that. 😩 Other than that this app is the best!! My boyfriend from Greensboro introduced me to it last month! Made my day!! I can listen to all the music from the 80’s again 😍🙌
It's okay
by Kent927 on 2021/06/04 18:58
This app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a pain to use in the car if you don’t have CarPlay as it doesn’t have Siri integration and doesn’t have a “car mode” that would make buttons bigger and easier to use. Also, I have Alpha Media owned stations 30 miles from me that don’t show up as locals when I click “use my current location.” I believe I encountered the same problem when visiting family in Tulsa, where the locals are owned by companies other than Audacy. Not sure if this is a problem with the current location, or if it's an information problem, but I get the four Alpha Media stations as locals when I visit the website and not on the iPhone/iPad app.
It could be so much better
by Vinny Bush on 2020/03/13 17:36
This app has the potential to be great but falls very short with being able to consistently deliver what you require as a listener. The connection whether it’s WiFi or LTE is spotty, even when I’m not moving around or in my car. Example: I would be listening to the news and the app will just decide to cut out for 30 seconds to a minute or longer with radio silence, leaving me wondering what I missed and ultimately making it difficult to keep following that conversation since the disruption caused you to miss a ton of information upon reconnecting. They also took away the lock screen functionality that allowed me to switch between stations without opening the app. They’re basically making you open the app and select a new station or having you just sit through the same redundant commercials over and over again, which are god awful. It is free so as far as some of these issues go I can blame it on that I guess. I also work for a software company and see some of these issues as easy fixes to make using the app much more functional and user-friendly.
Awful if not listening live
by Five dollar hustle on 2020/11/13 19:59
The Rewind feature is buggy at best- which is the only reason to use this instead of a radio. Every use at some point it loses my spot- updates to live randomly, phone calls interrupt, app freezes, pausing is just asking for issues- Leads to too much time trying to find where it left off. If you listening live there are constant moments where the stream is dead silence. Small interruptions but they happen often enough that you notice it not happening when listening to an actual radio. 2 stars because it allows me to listen from anywhere my phone has service. But if you can podcast whatever it is you need this app for, that’s a much better option.
Rating kcbs radio 740am
by Grandma Eppy on 2019/09/29 05:29
I’m giving a rating of 3 right now because earlier today, sat sep 28, I wanted to get live news to hear the traffic report but unfortunately got some pre-recorded talk show or podcast. I kept trying to get “live” news without luck. I just got the Radio app so maybe I get something wrong but I don’t think so. Well I have it on now and I’m getting live news at 10:43pm. I’m sure I’ll upgrade later. I’ve been listening since 1972! Everyday then when I was working every day at HP Palo Alto. And now since I’ve retired I miss it everyday. Now since I now have an iPhone 8, I can listen everyday again! Thank you for the news, traffic, weather, sports and everything else.
Needs Apple Watch support and other fixes.
by hubieonekanubi on 2019/07/30 12:45
This app has had its ups and downs for me. I use it every day because it’s my only choice to listen to the show I like. It only works on my iPhone/iPad ( I exclusively use my iPhone)so if I want to leave the house and want to leave my phone at home, I can’t stream from my cellular enabled Apple Watch. On top of that, if I get a call or an alarm goes off, the stream will not resume playing automatically after the call or after dismissing it. Sometimes I can hit play from the lock screen, other times I must force quit the app to get it to resume playing. This is all on an XS Max running most up to date iOS. It Could be great but it’s mediocre at best and more frustrating than anything.
Needs improvement
by _Jen23_ on 2021/04/08 12:42
I only downloaded this app to listen to the smiley morning show everyday because this is the only platform they broadcast content on, but honestly the app is so irritating. It constantly has delays, pauses, randomly shuts down, etc. I also have AirPods so I can’t even remove a pod to scratch my ear without it playing a freaking 30 second commercial when I put the pod back in. By then I’ve missed the whole skit. They also play additional commercials on top of what the actual company plays. The only reason I gave this two stars is because it plays the station I like to listen to when I’m not driving in my car, but I would rather buy a radio and tune it to my fave station than use this app.
Doesn’t resume when starting the car
by SouthJerseyKid on 2021/09/06 13:56
I really like the app overall, it is reliable and plays a lot of my favorite stations. However, one of the most annoying things is that when I get back in my car, it resumes play for about five seconds and shuts off. I have to sit in the parking lot, dig out my phone, and turn it back on again. I have tried the different settings, and they don’t make any difference at all. Sometimes it will remain on when I start the car up, but other times it won’t. You just don’t know when it’s going to do it.
Repetitive Ads that cut off the news stories before completed
by amsjs on 2021/09/17 10:38
I only listen to one station on this app. I listen to it every morning driving into work. WWJ950. The number of times you hear the same ad over and over and over is extremely frustrating. It will sometimes play the same exact ad back to back three times in a row. Just lately, these repetitive ads have started cutting into the news stories before they are even finished. It’s not even close. It seems to cut them off about halfway through their story. I am about to go back to listening to the station through the radio instead of this app.
Almost cried
by Shawncaradine9 on 2021/05/13 23:26
I was stuck in a loop of the same two commercials for 10 minutes earlier today. It’s not like I could have restarted the app at the time. I was driving. Also, whatever is being played will stop on its own. This is expected when my service drops. What is not expected is the station to not continue on its own. Again, I am driving, so it’s not the safest to restart the app. The play/pause button does not work until restarted. Lastly, I have had occasions where the station I would listen to would suddenly cut to a commercial from the app, not the station. I remember listening to sports talk a couple of weeks ago and the final stats for my team were immediately cut off. I got really emotional when I knew I could not listen to that in real time.
Crashes Often
by N'dour on 2021/08/21 14:35
The app randomly closes, stops, or completely crashes without any reason. There are times when it won’t connect, and you can continuously select the play button, but it gets caught in some type of infinite loop of not connecting. All of this happens on a strong WiFi connection. You can be listening to a radio show, open another app that’s unrelated , and one that has no audio or video, and the app just stops or closes. There’s no rhyme or reason. It doesn’t always crash, but it will surely happen, during every listening session. It is really poorly designed. I listen to one show on the app overnight and the app can’t even allow me to do that properly. Save your time. Not worth the hassle. I deleted the app. No more problems.
New features
by Smitty from Atlanta on 2021/05/20 12:10
App is okay, it does what it’s supposed to do allow you to listen to radio stations but it seems as with this last update 11.3.1 while listening on an iPad their annoying “what’s new prompts” appear and the only way to clear them is by clicking “next”. Well no problem for the prompts that appear in the middle of the screen, what about the ones that aren’t centered and the next is shifted off screen...no luck! I’ve been stuck on the “we’ve added audio sharing” prompt for the past week very annoying as these prompts render audio rewind in operable. Yeah I’ve contacted support, uninstalled/reinstalled app several times to no avail.
Worst audio app
by Brian8675309 on 2021/09/15 12:40
It’s really a joke how bad this app is, especially considering what a massive company is behind it. It constantly crashes! If you pause a show and try to restart it a short time later, you lose your place in the show probably 50% of the time, so you constantly have to manually find where you left off. This app needs a LOT of work. The Audacy app has stunk since it’s launch but this morning finally drove me nuts enough to come here and write a review. Unfortunately, if you enjoy some of the shows they offer, there aren’t many better options out there to listen to it. At the end of the day, the shortcomings definitely lead me to listen less (goodbye adverting dollars! 💸💸
Glitchy
by MHayman67 on 2020/03/10 18:01
This app is great for streaming my favorite radio shows (I’m a sports talk fan), but it’s very glitchy. Audio drops out all the time and I have to restart the app. If I take a call the app doesn’t always restart so I have to go back into the app and restart it. Same issues with the app cutting in and out in Apple car play. The audio will cut out, I’ll have to close the app, restart it, and do some backflips to get it to work again. I often just give up and listen to something else on a different app. Response: Instead of copy and pasting a response for us to email your developer to everyone that seems to have the same issue, why don’t you direct your developer to these comments and FIX YOUR APP!!!
Mixed feelings
by cyn318 on 2020/01/10 19:27
I Really Like being able to see the list of songs played, the artists, and the album covers! I also like to rate the songs. However, I REALLY WISH it was more Consistent. Often, several songs are played that are Not on the list, and that frustrates me. I hope to see this improve!! Thanks. (I think I wrote that review about May, 2019. ) It’s now January, 2020. Still inconsistent, but somewhat better overall, except that for the last week or so (??), there has been no album art. It’s as if the only guy who knew what to do went on vacation or quit!!?!!
Good idea with flaws
by Brewercraig on 2021/02/10 13:21
The app basically does what it is supposed to do, play your favorite radio stations. Unfortunately it has a playback option that allows you to hear the last 24 hrs. But it isn’t always a choice. It will pause playing if something interrupts it and then pickup where it was even10-15 minutes later. I can find no way to force it to always be live radio which is annoying. The app also has an issue with location. Even though I have my iPhone setting to share precise location the app indicates my market area to be Indianapolis or St. Louis or Kansas City not Milwaukee. Annoying. Really buggy. Shifts into playback mode fir no reason. Usually half an hour or one hour earlier. Not useful when you want live info only.
Still not impressed
by dchri92 on 2018/11/21 16:47
I’ve been using this app for a few months now...and I’m still not impressed. Not sure why the developers won’t add the option to pause the radio station I’m listening to. I miss that option the most since being forced to leave Tunein. Also, if I’m listening to the app through a Bluetooth speaker, when I turn the speaker off...the app quits playing on my phone and won’t start back up again when I hit play. When this app crashes, I usually have to completely restart my phone. With all the low ratings and complaints you would think they would fix things. I guess since most of us are stuck with them, they don’t have to.
Frustratingly annoying
by mitchfgf on 2021/05/11 23:26
This is probably the only app I have, and maybe will ever, take time to give a review on how bad it is. I moved from Connecticut to Texas, and mainly used this app to listen to WFAN New York sports radio. As Mets fan, I thought it would be good to use, since SNY does not have a Roku channel, this app and listen to the great Howie Rose. Boy was I wrong, I tune in early listen to the pregame on WCBS 880. Then the game starts, and it switches over to a news broadcast?!?! I check back with friends to make sure the game is on 880, and it is. I have tuned into WFAN randomly and gotten the Yankees game fine, and other baseball teams radio stations and had them streamed perfectly fine. Listening to a Mets game is apparently to difficult with this app. This is so pathetic considering other stations work fine.
It was 5 stars before rewind
by Ron750 on 2020/10/27 12:11
I use this App everyday because I live outside of the reception of Milwaukee Sports radio 1250AM. It is great to be able to hear about Wisconsin sports. Last year they added a rewind feature which I rarely use. Since then the app stops every time the stream is interrupted, by changing Bluetooth speakers, alarm going off, phone call, playing a video. It reverts to rewind and I have to close the app and open it again to get live again. Why have a jump to live button if it doesn’t work? Support says they can’t reproduce the problem, but other callers to the show say they have the same problem.
Worst app ever
by keld19 on 2019/12/04 19:10
Unfortunately this app has a few shows that I like to listen to otherwise I would have erased it long ago. The “upgrades” they’ve added - rewind, fast forward, pause etc have been available on the other radio apps for years. And work so much better! Without fail, the app freezes or skips forward when you’re trying to rewind not just once but several times in the span of 1 or 2 hr show. If I get a phone call or I accidentally hit the Siri button, it fails and I have to close it, reopen it and try to get back where I left off. Which is a real test of patience If I could give negative stars I would, esp when compared to iHeartRadio radio or tunein or any of the other radio apps that are far superior
I’d like it more
by jss0301 on 2021/09/12 13:25
I like the different type of content available on the app. I’d like it more if some obvious bugs were fixed. For example I like the rewind feature since I can’t always listen live but it just stops after one of the commercial breaks and then when you hit play it restarts back at the beginning of the program. On the National mix programs it will stop about 30 second after starting and just pause and when you hit play it restarts at the beginning. Also it will stop a number of song in and just restart playing the same series of songs. Good app but frustrating

It’s fine
by MrPoutyPants on 2021/10/19 18:13
It’s nice to be able to listen to radio shows a bit faster and skip the commercials but if I pause and exit the app it will constantly reset and go to the live feed and I have to go back to find my spot. Sometimes there will be segments of shows that are missing, not sure if that’s and issue from the station or the app.
Constant problems
by gWood87 on 2021/10/19 16:30
This is probably one of the worst apps I have used. It’s so bad for me personally that I’m doing my first ever app review for it. Constantly drops out for me (I know your thinking bad service but happens with full service in a 5G area all the time) also won’t load most times if I haven’t fully closed out the app so I have to fully close out the app and have it reopen constantly. I’m not talking after hours of none use either. Even after I go into a corner store for a minute. Really too bad because the sports talk station I like for my area doesn’t come in for me on the radio so I was really pumped for this app. It’s leaves me wanting way more every time I use it. It’s nice when it works but that’s about a quarter of the time.
Needs work
by bdred3 on 2021/10/18 23:50
When the Radio Station I listen to Says negative things about the App and the continuing problems with the streaming you know there’s a problem that needs fixing
Barely usable
by Subwayriderideride on 2021/10/18 19:53
Consistently playback will hang on live listening. “Rewind” function is even less functional than live listening. Audio will hang and requires restart from start of selected audio or complete app restart. I would listen more often if app functioned as intended.
Annoyingly buggy
by You pay me now! on 2021/10/17 16:44
You can set you watch by how often the app stops broadcasting. App requires frequent restarts. Browser version is far more stable.
Too many commercials
by frustrated with names on 2021/10/17 13:12
I listen while I am in the shower. I just listened to 20+ minutes of commercials. They announced a song, then when the song should have come on the commercials started and didn’t end until I was out of the shower. Plus a lot of the commercials are just repeated over and over. I will be deleting and going back to my iTunes. When there is music, or even the radio hosts talking, I do enjoy it.
AUDIO TORTURE
by blueg33 on 2021/10/16 21:57
Absolutely unlistenable. So few sponsors that the same 3 commercials (with the same VO talent) are played AROUND the clock, ad nauseum, often 3,4,5 times back to back, in every commercial break. Pure, unadulterated audio torture. Hate with the heat of a thousand suns. The fact that even 1 star is required to submit this review is an insult.
Needs a serious update
by loosebucks on 2021/10/15 21:25
This app was working fine until the latest update. When my iPhone locks the app stops playing which it did not do previously. When I restart, it doesn’t pick up where it left off and the time on the show is not accurate. Hopefully u have received similar feedback from other users and we see an improvement soon.
The good the bad the ugly
by Knownbyfew on 2021/10/15 14:17
The good is I get to catch the ONLY station I listen to on here because it’s not available anywhere else. The bad is whether I’m home on wifi or on the road (truck driver) this app since the station switched to it has ALWAYS and CONTINUALLY lets me down because it stops like it crashes interrupting what I’m listening to. I can’t go back using the 15 sec button because that doesn’t work properly and it takes forever then that stops. Continual buffering is a huge problem also. The ugly is you guys haven’t fixed this bug yet I’ve been listening over a year and it’s never been addressed. I know the station I listen to can’t be the only problem on here. There’s got to be other people and things they listen to going through the same thing. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE! (maybe my bad and ugly review parts should be switched) also I’m on spectrum wifi with the highest package no issues and my cell is on 5g with Verizon and a iPhone 12 Pro max so it’s not me.
App is bad
by lubber123 on 2021/10/14 20:20
I appreciate using an app to listen to my sports radio, however, sometimes it is more frustrating than it’s worth. The app often loses connection, sometimes for extended periods of time. I live in Washington DC and yet, even though I have designated dc as my area, I constantly hear ads for the south Florida and nyc areas. The app is difficult to navigate. Though I designated two sports stations and favorites, I still can’t find out how to easily navigate to my favorites and between the two favorites. The app needs work.
App crashes constantly
by mark494949 on 2021/10/14 14:47
Terrible app, just want to listen to one station and can’t do it because the app keeps freezing and crashing. It rewinds to an earlier time randomly so I’m constantly restarting the app to fix it. So annoying. Yes I already have background refresh on and it doesn’t help. Please fix you app and get a better developer
Never works
by Mattyz9 on 2021/10/14 13:16
This app is a joke. Can’t play for more than 10 minutes without disconnecting. Constantly buffers or crashes. Can’t listen to anything. Don’t bother with this, listen on other apps that actually work.
CarPlay Doesn’t Work
by dominick4233 on 2021/10/14 01:32

Good shows not user friendly
by BKWisco40 on 2021/10/13 19:34
I would use this app more if it was user friendly. It can be difficult to find shows and get them to play. The app freezes a lot or jumps to love radio when I’m listening to shows from earlier in the day. It so much easier to just get the episodes off Apple Podcasts.
Frustrating
by zmann4011 on 2021/10/13 19:20
I feel like the developers of this app must not use it for sports talk radio because there’s no way anyone who could change the app could put up with how poorly it performs. Please talk to actual users about the issues because I could send you an extensive list
Adds play back to back no stop
by eftarb on 2021/10/13 18:31
The same two adds will play back to back during the whole commercial break which gets very annoying after a couple of times
Horrible
by Djkneekap on 2021/10/12 20:20
Plays ads right in the middle of regular programming on talk stations. The SAME ads over and over. Absolute torture.
Constant dropping
by Gobyteme on 2021/10/12 19:00
This app crashes. A lot! Even with 3-4 bars of signal. If you have less, good luck. Makes it really hard to listen to when you are constantly reloading it. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Functional but interface is bad
by AtJa80 on 2021/10/12 17:07
When I open the app, I want to see my favorites. I want easy access. Not a bunch of suggestions for playlists and podcasts and other stuff I have no interest in. My favorites are my favorites for a reason.
Glitches
by evangball on 2021/10/12 14:22
Glitches and stops playing for no reason it’s not my connection because every other app works fine except for this one
Garbage app-Same ads over and over
by Guppie1976 on 2021/10/12 13:41
Update: still the same handful of ads that have been playing for months. I’m uninstalling this garbage. They play the same ads over and over and over and… Sometimes the same ad will play three times in the same commercial break. I can’t listen anymore
Annoying
by jdude6073 on 2021/10/12 12:33
Couple things: firstly, I don’t understand how you can boast about your rewind feature when you cut out multiple segments of shows. Secondly, your live on air ads cut into the live listening experience so much so that it’s better to just run 15 seconds behind and listen to the radio ads. Please fix the cutting out of shows issue.
Just plain buggy
by Clubnev on 2021/10/11 19:34
I use this to listen to 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland. I’ve been using this app for years from its inception on Radio.com to its present version. I have had the the same problem on my iPhone with all versions. When a bank of commercials are reached, the app has a mind of its own. It may pause. It may skip the segment and jump to the next segment. It may start the current show from the beginning. It may repeat the segment. One never knows what it will do. It’s been a problem for a few years. Now I pay attention to where it stops so I can slide it to the current segment. I’ve had help tickets with the technical Dept. The bottom line is the app has problems but I still continue to use it because it’s the only option I have to listen to this station. I expect it will always be buggy. Can’t say whether it’s a problem with the app or it’s integration with 92.3. I occasionally use it with CBS radio, with better results.
Great app, but storage is ridiculous
by GoBlue10 on 2021/10/11 19:22
So I love the app, but after listening to live radio a couple times, the app says my storage will take up ~60% of my phones total storage if I keep it! Not sure why, but that needs to be fixed or else the app is unusable.
App/Radio discontinues when app closes
by Chrisstanford50 on 2021/10/11 18:49
Prior to the most recent update I could listen to my favorite radio stations when I can put the phone to sleep or switch to a different app. This is piss poor now.
Audacy
by G$7007 on 2021/10/11 16:55
App is okay, but programming on live shows is absolutely horrible. I think someone should be able to schedule commercials so they don’t repeat 5 or 6 times in a row.
Needs improvement
by kpspkpsp on 2021/10/11 14:19
The 15 second rewind arrow will sometimes take you back to beginning of show or some other random place. Makes it impossible to go back to catch something important like an event date. Also the voices on the ads that Audacy plays to promote podcasts are juvenile and the content of said podcasts sounds insipid and trendy. I will look for another option.
Not consistent
by Zeemunee on 2021/10/11 14:16
Rarely a consistent experience when trying to load my station. Sometimes it works sometimes not. Then when it loads, sometimes it will just stop playing and I need to reload. Not a very customer friendly experience.
Turrible, just turrible
by AJ4Prez on 2021/10/11 13:31
Randomly stops playing. Sound just drops out. Jumps around in the time line. Total junk.
Continues to be a terrible app
by Kait1121 on 2021/10/11 12:04
Have seen some very minor improvements but overall this app continues to fall short. Listening to anything on demand, better not pause or the show will start over when you hit play. Sometimes it gets stuck in a loop just plays the same 3 minutes over and over again. I could go on and on. Terrible.
Time to clean house!
by Zel123 on 2021/10/09 19:38
Same crap listed in every review. The restart from the beginning after an interruption is ridiculous. Developer response is canned and means nothing. If the goal of the Audacy app is to piss off all the people that use it, then they have done their job. People that lead this company must have no clue if they are willing to put up with this lackluster performance month after month. An embarrassment in my opinion! ..and again we get the crap response. We don’t want a response, we want you to fix this crappy app! Doesn’t the leadership of this product care about the user experience? Aren’t they tired of haven’t a substandard product? Don’t you want something you can be proud of? Never mind, I think I know the answer.
Struggles to work
by Rpmiphone on 2021/10/09 14:35
50% of the time may be a little exaggerated, but it feels like half the time I open it up and turn on my favorite station it just never loads. Restart the app, same thing, then other times works fine. Pretty annoying user experience overall.
Awful
by 2fst4u2 on 2021/10/08 12:46
I wish I could give 0 stars, it’s terrible. It takes forever to load and randomly drops throughout the broadcast, don’t download it it’s bad
terrible
by meganelizabeth! on 2021/10/08 11:42
the app always crashes, constantly breaks up when people are talking. it’s very annoying.
Barely functional with Apple Carplay
by JTB2129 on 2021/10/07 21:20
dangerous to use while driving
Awful app
by Doctor Hobo M.D. on 2021/10/07 20:12
Crashes all the time, whenever I try to start a show over, it will get to the first commercial break and just restart itself. You can’t pause without it resetting the episode. Car play is horrible. I only use this app because it’s the only way to listen to 94 WIP. Oh and the location is always off so even if I’m in Philadelphia, I can’t listen to Phillies games because it thinks I’m somewhere else.
Spotty connection
by Arubadragon on 2021/10/07 13:47
My Iphone has full bars but this app will cut in and out for no reason. This has been going on now for over a month. I turn on pandora out of frustration and no problem there what so ever.
Fails to deliver basic radio function
by veteranyoungguy on 2021/10/07 12:32
If you like having to mess with your phone every radio segment download this app. Shows on 97.1 the ticket will not play continuously. They stop playing at the commercial breaks. When I try to continue playing a show by pressing play or skipping forward the previous segment plays again. This makes the app really frustrating and inconvenient to use. Radio.com used to do this sometimes but Audacy always does this and it’s been months since the change. I can’t understand why it isn’t as simple as turning on a show and having it play straight through, commercials and all. I hope the station will get rid of this format and go to simple daily podcasts but I’d settle for Audacy fixing its app.
Background listening removed
by glennQNYC on 2021/10/07 11:55
The latest version of the app removed the ability to listen without having the app open. Now you have to keep the app open to listen. 👎🏻
Junk

Junk
Can’t Take It Anymore
by leanguy1 on 2021/10/06 17:44
For a long time this app would freeze for no reason. Sometimes the only way to restart it was to delete and reload it. An update reduced this problem and now I can listen reliably. However, now that I can listen to everything I cannot take the commercials anymore. The same ads play over and over and over at every break and many of them are promos for Audacy podcasts. Three days ago the same two promos played 4 times each at a break! Although I got this to listen to KMOX in STL I’ll find other things to listen to.
Great concept. Needs Work
by hehifhbsj on 2021/10/06 16:45
Love that you have the option to listen to radio across the country (it is 2021 after all) but it still needs a ton of work. Very glitchy and the pause option hardly ever works.
Not happy with it
by LordVyst on 2021/10/06 14:47
Not impressed at all. I use the app because I travel for work and like to hear my favorite morning radio show, and usually tune in late. The problem is when I get a phone call, not only does the app lose where I am at in the broadcast, but also crashes. And it’s a pain to get back to where I was at to continue to listen.
CarPlay issue
by Ana Serna on 2021/10/05 22:30
I’m having trouble accessing the CarPlay app. Menu won’t sload. 😡
Crap app
by fodus! on 2021/10/05 21:02
It’s so glitchy. Constant commercials that don’t apply to my area. I’m not Spanish. I don’t want to listen to Spanish commercials. I hope my station goes to a different app.
Terrible app
by Jdogg4677743346 on 2021/10/05 19:11
This has got to be the worst streaming app out there. It often cuts out in the middle of a show, doesn’t work easily with headphones or Airplay and sometimes I get what sounds like two streams at once of the same show.
Too many repeated commercials
by Acadog on 2021/10/05 10:55
Hearing the same annoying commercials every 3-4 minutes makes me turn Audacy off. I miss info I am used to hearing due to excessive interruptions.
Terrible timing
by Tdtdtddtdyyddyyd on 2021/10/05 03:33
The app constantly loses place when I pause and come back. It either jumps ahead or back to the beginning.
I don’t like the new update!
by MegaSteps1 on 2021/10/05 01:03
It’s an awesome app! But why am I not seeing what’s playing or the playlist of recently played on unowned Audacy stations?! It’s been like that for over a year! Tune in had an update regarding iHeart and seeing what’s being played. You add more stations which it’s great but can’t add on what’s playing. Can that be fixed??
Bugs, glitches, and useless.
by Junkman024 on 2021/10/04 22:55
Once interrupted by a phone call this rewind app option sporadically rewinds or fast forwards to a random spot in the show. Mostly goes live. The app should know how to save its spot. This is a reoccurring issue with every update since it’s inception.
Pause No Work
by Stodman5 on 2021/10/04 22:28
If you pause the app, it restarts the show. Really??
Audacy a broken product using iPhone 13
by JackStraw777 on 2021/10/04 20:38
I have already complained to Audacy about the rewind feature freezing at every commercial break. It is totally unusable unless you are willing to manually advance the program at each break. If you don’t do it at exact time the program will freeze. You then have to shutdown the app and restart. Don’t need this aggravation. Will just listen to podcasts. Never seen a more incompetent company than Audacy. Basically ruined the great Tune-In pro product.
Repeating Commercials
by Gbgarry on 2021/10/04 19:02
I love that I can listen to my favorite out of state radio station. However, it is beyond annoying that I have to listen to the same advertisement repeating 5 times during a commercial break and repeat during every break through the day. Fix this now!!!!
Absolutely Terrible
by J_Bar1 on 2021/10/04 17:33
Do you want to go crazy? Do you want to beat your head against the wall? Then this is the app for you! I’ve never left an app review before but this one was so terrible, I couldn’t resist. It’s just non stop commercials and they only play the same 3-4 commercials too! I swear I just turned it on and they played the same commercial 3 times in a row. Absolutely trash app. Listen to literally anything else.
Ludicrous
by honest and truthful. on 2021/10/03 19:27
The concept sounds intriguing, right? Another radio station streaming app. But why would you want to have local information dubbed over with information from hours away and even in different time zones? The whole reason you’re listening to the radio station just to have a local experience otherwise you were just stream music or podcasts without specifically lookingFor a radio station in a specific city. Another major failure, thanks.
Doesn’t play nicely with iOS 15
by EmmaJoy53 on 2021/10/03 14:06
Since I upgraded to iOS 15, this app no longer plays unless it is on screen. I can no longer listen to the Audacy radio when I am checking the weather or news. When my phone goes to the lock screen, Audacy stops playing. I’d be grateful if either Audacy or Apple might get address this! Updated review: Now, Audacy won’t play at all on my iPhone 11 running iOS 15. After several quits, it now gives silence even when the screen shows that it is playing. Although this app works fine on iOS 14, I have had to delete it from my iOS 15 phone. It’s frustrating, as one of my favorite shows is only available to stream on Audacy, and I can’t listen to it on my phone until you upgrade the app to work with iOS 15. I will try again after a week or two, but for now, Audacy is simply not usable on iOS 15. Please upgrade, I’ll revise this review when you do!
CarPlay is atrocious
by mihoffman06 on 2021/10/03 01:07
Please fix CarPlay. It’s borderline unusable.
App stream continues to stop and start
by south jersey dave on 2021/10/02 12:06
nonstop while using. Seems to have gotten much worse over the past few weeks. Not just one device but all devices I use. Not sure what changes they made but the experience has deteriorated. I appreciate the ability to listen to wfan wherever I am and I realize it’s free but it’s puzzling that remains inconsistent in its ability to just play without stopping and starting every few minutes.
Works, but the repetitive ads are infuriating
by Bobogado on 2021/10/01 14:30
This app works perfectly in the sense that I can listen to WSCR from Chicago when I want to. Because it’s a commercial station, ads are necessary. I get that. But what drives me absolutely nuts is how the same commercial is played over and over and over. And I don’t mean here and there. I have heard the same ad played five times consecutively. Or play an ad, play another ad, then the same two over again, and again.
REPETITIVE COMMERCIALS
by CFINK302 on 2021/10/01 13:17
I left one star for one huge reason, when using this app you will be tortured by hearing the same 3-4 terrible advertisements OVER AND OVER again. I’m talking you will hear the same commercial probably 12-16 times in an hour or less. I used the app for a couple weeks and it’s driven me crazy I can’t use it anymore . Please fix your advertisements that is my only issue with your app.
So glitchy
by Very Disappointed Doug on 2021/10/01 01:24
It's impossible to enjoy this - keeps freezing and going in and out. I switch to Sirius app on my phone and it's perfect every time. Wish I could listen to wfan elsewhere.
Fix your app
by n se jgkalms fnl on 2021/09/30 13:00
Crashes every single day - does not matter if you are connected to wifi or your cell plan. Does not matter if you have the most recent app or phone updates The app crashes every. Single. Day.
Refresher on / off button
by Sprucky33 on 2021/09/30 11:37
Refresher on/ off button constantly spins and turns without stopping. ☹️ app is not good… needs lots of work. I have a iPhone 11pro max and it’s works terribly. I listen to WAOK 1380am and it’s awful. So, I switch to my music apps. Please make repairs.
THE WORST
by Solange47 on 2021/09/30 00:50
If I could give -stars, I would. So many ads! All the time! The timed ads cut off the live newsreaders, so annoying. And the timed ads repeat constantly. Awful. I will no longer listen to this local station.
Still hit or miss on playback controls
by BRabbit_ on 2021/09/29 17:57
But I will give them credit. Had an issue today where the app stopped playing in the background. A quick internet search found a simple solution. So they got that going for them.
User experience is erratic
by Bill__2 on 2021/09/29 15:03
Playback is sometimes fine, but other times extremely frustrating. Program playback will sometimes spontaneously stop playing, at a commercial break or just in the middle of a segment. There doesn’t appear to be a discernible pattern as to when or why this happens. When that happens and you hit play to restart, it either will not start at all, or restarts from the beginning. When it decides to restart from the beginning even though you just want playback to continue from where it spontaneously stopped, the playback timeline incorrectly shows you’re restarting at the point it froze. Very aggravating. Also, sometimes the timeline slider will not allow you to move it at all. When that happens you have to pick a different program, and then go back to the program you’re listening to, or sometimes kill and restart the app. In either case you need to make a mental note of where you were in the timeline slider so you can get back to the right place after restarting the program or the app. The playback feature is a great feature when it works. When it doesn’t, the behavior it exhibits is very aggravating and is a bad user experience.
Terrible app
by Get Your Sh!t Together! on 2021/09/28 21:09
This app is the worst; it glitches all the time, if I pause it for some reason when I press play it will start from the very beginning of the show and I won’t remember the exact time of where I was, I can’t rewind during commercial? The only reason I have this app is because for some reason it’s all static on the radio.
Cool idea when it works
by JoKeZ I on 2021/09/28 18:36
Radio cuts out constantly. Podcast cuts out, switched to Spotify and haven’t had a problem.
Too many commercials
by mgkrsh on 2021/09/28 15:58
I have been listening for a few months, and now they r adding so many commercials. I counted 15 at one time, it was for Macy’s, Spectrum and Instagram. It was a loop. So 5 each of the same exact commercial. I’m deleting the app. I have no use for it.
Not just me Groundhog Day
by Georgeny on 2021/09/28 11:39
Once was the app now Killin me!!! Commercials every 2 minutes, same commercial over and over. I don’t even own a dam lawn. But now the stuck in commercial repeat until closed and reopened too darn horrific. If I did own a lawn I know who I wouldn’t use!!!!!!! Fix this or I bet many are gone!! iOS Apple x if that matters, it shouldn’t. I’ll miss it if you don’t fix it. But enough is enough.
Cuts out when listening to live radio
by porsava on 2021/09/28 10:19
This app has problems, way more than radio.com. I listen to WWJ news radio 950 and the app constantly cuts the news content and repeats the same annoying commercials. I miss so much! Very frustrating! What happened?
Cuts off broadcasts in mid sentence with commercials. Do not use! Listen to the radio instead!
by rww1962 on 2021/09/28 10:05
Too many commercials!
Super glitchy especially using CarPlay
by urbanxplorer on 2021/09/27 22:22
I use this app almost every day to listen to local AM radio stations because the sound quality is better. The app usually errors out when first opened and freezes or crashes during playback. It’s a very frustrating experience. Please improve this app. Thank you!!
Never works on iOS
by Ken_Krause on 2021/09/26 20:48
Listening to radio and constantly cuts out. Stops streaming. Tried restarting app, uninstall/reinstall. This app has become so awful.
Commercials over and over
by Relayer2112 on 2021/09/26 15:05
Don’t get me wrong, I love listening to internet radio. It’s the commercial breaks I have a problem with. Commercials are a necessity, obviously. What’s not necessary is being forced to listen to the same three 30 second ads repeated a half dozen times during the same commercial break. This happens all the time in this app to the point at which I think the app is broken.
App constantly needs to be restarted
by dsanow92 on 2021/09/25 15:07
Playback freezes at every commercial when listening to 97.1 The ticket rewind episodes. When you restart it, 1/2 the time it starts a chapter you already listened too all over again. If you get a phone call, the app restarts and you have to start over and find where you were in the episode. Very frustrating. The app is very buggy!
TOO MANY REPETITIVE ADS!!!
by FrenetikMHz on 2021/09/25 13:45
Look, I understand yall need to play commercials to keep your app and your service free. But why is the ratio of content to ads like 2 minutes to 10? And if I hear the ace your retirement song one more time I’m going to scream. Doesn’t help that the only way I can listen to 93.7 the fan is this crappy service. How has iHeart radio figured this out but you guys haven’t?? Shameful.
Doesn’t work
by cosme.s on 2021/09/24 23:46
Hi, your app is trash and doesn’t work. Better luck next time.
Better with AM radio
by Wrh422 on 2021/09/24 11:29
Audacy app; should be the nothingness app. Constantly and consistently this third app takeover plays all commercials all the time. How irritating to TRY to listen to news with the interruptions bombarding the announcer. Never get to hear the full story. Purchased an AM radio; always count on an ol’ standby😊!
All ads all the time
by MaximumJ on 2021/09/24 11:20
I’ve tried to stream a couple of all news radio stations and all this app does is break into the middle of news stories with repeated ads every couple of minutes over and over again. The listening experience is at least 50% ads…the same two or three ads constantly. It’s ridiculous and unlistenable. I gave up and will delete it.
More repetitive ads than anywhere else.
by Richtennis on 2021/09/24 05:32
Had to stop listening
Very very good!
by Boweeeeeee on 2021/09/23 18:25
This is one of my favorite apps. It’s so inviting and easy to use. The content feels very personalized and local too. Well done! Some might say similar to XM and free! I’ll be enjoying this app for a while. Thanks!
WOW OMGG
by okayyywannabe on 2021/09/23 13:20
I just found this app today and it’s better then other apps but I wish the colors were black all black but it’s good app thanks I really love both kind of music Spanish and English 9-23-21
CarPlay adaptation is Horrendous
by Osoroshii Ryuu on 2021/09/23 11:38
Trying to use CarPlay with this app it’s just an exercise in patience. Content is very slow to load if it loads at all.
Repeat commercials
by Mohrt2 on 2021/09/23 09:32
I get that commercials are necessary in a free app, but to hear the same three or four commercials over and over again is maddening. Plus it feels like the actual time listening to the station versus hearing commercials is about 1/2.
Random repeated commercials
by basementguy on 2021/09/23 09:00
It will play commercials in the middle of a news broadcast ,then play another version of the same commercial 30 seconds later. It’s really annoying when you just want to get a traffic report.
Not working since update
by innersimplicity on 2021/09/23 02:43
Use this during my 45 minute commute to & from work every day. Hasn’t worked since update. Can’t get stations or podcasts. Incredibly frustrating!
Glitchy
by Furious George 88 on 2021/09/22 20:05
Is there a reason I can’t hit pause when listening and ever be in the same place again when I hit play? Every time one of my headphones falls out of my ears I end up fifteen minutes behind where I was. And then sometimes the scrolling button just stops working, and I have to hard quit the app to get back to where I was.
Doesn’t play in background
by Hantes on 2021/09/22 19:21
Since upgrading to iOS 15, app doesn’t play in background any longer.
Loved it until today
by nittany4 on 2021/09/21 17:30
Updated to ios15 this morning and when I put on Audacy for my lunchtime walk, it stopped playing when I changed apps to my pedometer, over and over. It did not do this yesterday. I tried to avoid looking at the pedometer, but Audacy also shut off when my screen weNt yo sleep. Audacy is now unusable on my phone.
Terrible
by hedwardc on 2021/09/20 21:19
This app is a nightmare. It seems to require constant attention. Almost impossible to listen to and drive at the same time. Wish I could give it zero stars.
Great app and great stations
by Robbie Stanton on 2021/09/20 17:33
Would love to West Virginia Radio Corporation, Townsquare Media, Adams Radio Group, SummitMedia, American General Media, Connoisseur Media, Educational Media Foundation, Emmis, Forever Media, Hubbard Radio, Midwest Communications, Renda Broadcasting, Saga Communications, Steel City Media, Stephens Media, Univision, Cherry Creek Media, and Way Media stations on the app next!
Frustrating
by Mountie78 on 2021/09/20 12:44
The news alerts put out by Audacy throughout the day are nothing but clickbait for their advertisers! Every time you open an alert it becomes an ad within seconds and is impossible to delete without also deleting the news alert. What a scam!
How does this have a 4.6??
by myb2020 on 2021/09/20 11:44
I have been using this app for a bit; more out of the like for a show than the loyalty to this pile. Connected to the internet or streaming Monday-Friday; doesn’t matter section and segments of material doesn’t play; Constantly skips or drops out. I also use Twitch for this very same show with zero issue and that app steams video! Only thing this app deserves credit for pairs rewind feature; but rewinding to hear the same lack of material just reminds me why I’m completely switching away.
Diminished “Upgrade”
by Who'sThatLady on 2021/09/20 10:48
As a daily user of the 1010WINS slot on the Radio.com app for years, I’m extremely disappointed with the frequency of daily intermittent “dead air” gaps of the replacement AUDACY app while the app reloads. 😞What the heck is the problem with creating an app that loads properly, then plays consistently?!? DEVELOPERS PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS, IDENTIFY AND CORRECT PROBLEMS WITH THIS APP! Thank you
Eh
by Foxtrilly on 2021/09/20 04:12
I listen to it for one sports radio show because I’m out of market, and its just too many ads, the app plays its ads the The radio show plays their ads, it’s like 10 minute commercial breaks every 10 minutes, if I try to pause for a while and then fast forward it won’t let me so I’m forced to hear the ads, if you leave the app for two seconds the app will refresh and when you come back to it will give you a long commercial break while whatever you’re trying to watch is live
Always cutting out.
by lil rock monster on 2021/09/19 16:16
I rarely leave reviews but this app is killing me. Every time I try to listen to a station I can get about 10 minutes of content and it cuts out. Then I have to reboot the app and play again, about a :30 process before it starts playing again. It’s very frustrating.
Way too many ads
by Rfsgyfdryfyhddddui on 2021/09/19 13:48
Way too many commercials in batches of 5 to 10 minutes
Repetitive Ads that cut off the news stories before completed
by amsjs on 2021/09/17 10:38
I only listen to one station on this app. I listen to it every morning driving into work. WWJ950. The number of times you hear the same ad over and over and over is extremely frustrating. It will sometimes play the same exact ad back to back three times in a row. Just lately, these repetitive ads have started cutting into the news stories before they are even finished. It’s not even close. It seems to cut them off about halfway through their story. I am about to go back to listening to the station through the radio instead of this app.
Excellent 4 out of 5
by Zitka019 on 2019/04/24 12:55
I would give this app a 5 out of 5 if it did not freeze as much as it does when the device sits in the same place. The other thing that needs to be fixed when looking for radio station articles or announcements the app will back u out or shutdown. I know it sounds big but it is not. It makes having to restart the app every hr or so when played for an extended time period a pain. Also when it freezes and it is the only playing in the background in office it makes it a pain because someone is always yelling fix the app which disturbs the entire office. Fix these two things and I’ll change to 5 out of 5. Thanks for the good one currently. Sorry one last thing does not effect stars. Please let listeners know when not going to have sports games streaming on it. Thanks
Lots of potential, but frustrating
by Pinstriped on 2021/07/04 16:31
I use this app primarily to listen to WFAN’s sports talk content. I could listen on the radio, but my schedule makes it more convenient to listen via streaming. I have two main frustrations: 1) is difficulty finding content, like Richard Neer’s Saturday and Sunday broadcasts, on the app. If I use the search feature in the app to search “Richard Neer” or “Neer” nothing comes up. So instead, I have to Google, put in “Richard Neer” and search thru several results to find a link that will bring me to his Audacy content, usually via an Apple podcasts link. This method usually works, but not always, and it’s cumbersome. Frustration number 2 is more serious: the app frequently freezes or drops out, especially at commercial breaks, and if I try to rewind during a delayed stream, the app often takes me to the live station stream, and it’s impossible to go back to find my place. For example, I was listening to Neer interviewing someone this morning, and I tried to hit the “rewind 15 seconds”’button, and it took me to the live stream. I have NO PROBLEM listening to ads - I know the app needs to get revenue somehow. So let us listen to the ads! Instead, when I get to the ads, the app freezes or crashes half of the time. Fix these issues and it goes to 5 stars; as is, it’s too frustrating to rate higher than 2 stars.
Great iPhone radio app, awful CarPlay implementation
by RafaKoy on 2019/12/18 23:22
I spend at least 3 hours driving daily. This app is the only one compatible with CarPlay that offers 1010 wins, so it was a no brained, but unfortunately the CarPlay implementation is more of a gimmick than anything. Favorite radios should be the first item in the list, that, or show them as icons immediately when opening the app, instead with have to browse trough the screen multiple menus to select a radio. We are driving remember? Where is the usability? The worst thing with this app however is the black screen I get 80% of the time when I touch the app icon on the CarPlay screen, the app works but the screen is empty. The only way I have to start listening to the radio I want is holding the phone and searching for the radio I want trough it, not the screen of CarPlay because there is nothing there. This is infuriating, and not an issue with my phone or car as I thought first. I tested it with my wife and kids iPhones (we all have different models) and our two cars, and it’s always the same issue. I tested it with a friend’s car and it’s the same thing. I’m pretty sure this is a great app as a stand-alone working with the phone, but please fix the CarPlay functionality.
User experience is erratic
by Bill__2 on 2021/09/29 15:03
Playback is sometimes fine, but other times extremely frustrating. Program playback will sometimes spontaneously stop playing, at a commercial break or just in the middle of a segment. There doesn’t appear to be a discernible pattern as to when or why this happens. When that happens and you hit play to restart, it either will not start at all, or restarts from the beginning. When it decides to restart from the beginning even though you just want playback to continue from where it spontaneously stopped, the playback timeline incorrectly shows you’re restarting at the point it froze. Very aggravating. Also, sometimes the timeline slider will not allow you to move it at all. When that happens you have to pick a different program, and then go back to the program you’re listening to, or sometimes kill and restart the app. In either case you need to make a mental note of where you were in the timeline slider so you can get back to the right place after restarting the program or the app. The playback feature is a great feature when it works. When it doesn’t, the behavior it exhibits is very aggravating and is a bad user experience.
Needs accessibility enhancements or improvements
by Themusicman08 on 2021/03/30 14:49
I download this app at the suggestion of a friend of mine. I like it but it needs some serious accessibility improvements. Those of us that use voiceover which is a talking part of the iOS need to know what we are doing and how to get favorites. Also, the pictures that are shown on the screen aren’t labeled properly so voiceover doesn’t know how to tell those of us who are blind or visually impaired what the object on screen is. I hope that the developers of this app will take this feedback and give it some consideration. Maybe even write a response back to this review. I would love to talk to them. Also, our speech says that there are buttons twice. Is this true? Or is this a bug in the application when it comes to using voiceover? I am not able to get in touch with intercom‘s corporate offices to speak to them about this application so I’m hoping that someone will read this review and get back to me as previously stated.
Too many bugs
by Tom in a truck on 2021/07/21 15:11
They’re lucky I didn’t give 1 star. I only use this app to listen to 1 station and it’s so inconsistent, I rarely waste my time. It automatically tries to play my favorite station when I open the app which is fine. But half the time, it fails to load. While casually listening, it’ll randomly freeze and stop playing. But once I hit pause and play, it resumes as if there wasn’t a problem. Other times, it’ll continuously run ads for minutes until I stop it. Other times while listening to a live stream, it’ll rewind itself to the beginning of the stream without warning me. I only realize it if I’ve been listening from the beginning and start to hear things I’ve heard before. These issues could be overlooked if it weren’t such a constant occurrence. I drive for a living spending 8-14 hours a day on the road and I can rarely get through a couple hours without an issue arising. I thought when they change to Audacy, things would get better but it’s the same app with a new logo
Tragically, my most used app.
by deeznutz19 on 2020/05/27 17:51
This is both my most used app, and the absolute worst app I use. I stream out of market sports radio (shout out 97.1 The Ticket Detroit). It constantly crashes. It gets stuck in endless commercial loops. It goes mute, to which the only option is to start the show at the beginning, fast forward 15 seconds at a time through hours of radio until it clicks back on. It randomly doesn’t play certain shows. The new wrinkle(I assume they added this as an April fools, and due to covid-19 just forgot to shut it off) is that it plays with no audio, and the only way to get it to work is to restart my device, delete and reinstall the app, rinse and repeat until it decides to play. If there are any alternative options for radio streaming out there, please someone let me know. I cannot understate what a simmering kettle of goat droppings this app is. It was terrible years ago, and continues to get incrementally worse with each update. Pure trash. I would happily pay a few bucks for a functioning app, especially considering how frequently I use said app.
New company , same garbage app
by SuspectDOA on 2021/03/31 13:48
I listen to talk radio on this app. I would say freezes between 10 and 12 times an hour for four seconds each time. Most times I pause to talk to someone or answer a phone call or make a phone call it doesn’t hold my place and resets. Especially on demand. When I listen to on demand it tries to skip commercials but ends up either starting the show over or replaying the segment I had just listened to. Which is a lot of fun when you’re trying to drive let me tell you. I also get caught in advertisement loops where I’ve heard up to 10 advertisements in a row before closing the app and restarting it just to get back to the live programming. Sometimes I’ll be listening to a show and receive a phone call and the app doesn’t restart where I left off but when I play the program back it’ll restart at the beginning of the segment or the entire show. Then I have to try to fast forward and find the spot where it left off. Which once again is a lot of fun when you’re trying to drive. And that’s if the rewind and fast-forward functions actually work because a lot of times the app says it’s not connecting and everything but the play/pause button is grayed out. When the app works it’s great and I love it unfortunately I would say that’s less than half the time I use it. 3 out of 10 in baseball is batting 300 and makes you an all-star. In the app world it makes you a failure. Please fix!
The good the bad the ugly
by Knownbyfew on 2021/10/15 14:17
The good is I get to catch the ONLY station I listen to on here because it’s not available anywhere else. The bad is whether I’m home on wifi or on the road (truck driver) this app since the station switched to it has ALWAYS and CONTINUALLY lets me down because it stops like it crashes interrupting what I’m listening to. I can’t go back using the 15 sec button because that doesn’t work properly and it takes forever then that stops. Continual buffering is a huge problem also. The ugly is you guys haven’t fixed this bug yet I’ve been listening over a year and it’s never been addressed. I know the station I listen to can’t be the only problem on here. There’s got to be other people and things they listen to going through the same thing. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE! (maybe my bad and ugly review parts should be switched) also I’m on spectrum wifi with the highest package no issues and my cell is on 5g with Verizon and a iPhone 12 Pro max so it’s not me.
2 months later....
by fhbgvduiytyu on 2018/09/30 07:58
I have previously used TuneIn before this app but since Enter-com Communications switched all of its stations over to their app it has made my life harder and looking at the other reviews I think others too. If you are going to switch apps 1. Please tell us you are going to switch soon so we have a heads up. 2. Make sure you have great execution of the app you are making and make SURE the consumers like it and that it works well. This app has connectivity issues all the time, sometimes it will say that it is playing and I can’t hear anything or it will play then stop then start playing again. What I do appreciate is the you release app updates often. If you can fix the bugs/crashes I think you will make a lot more people happy. To all companies and people out there. If you have something that works just fine, don’t switch things up. As he saying goes “if it isn’t broken don’t fix it”. I hope anyone who reads this has a wonderful day and don’t forget to smile. :)
Rewind feature
by DericAnzalone on 2019/10/19 18:58
I’m writing this review since I actually use this app daily now that the put the rewind feature in. Also, I only use the app to listen to wfan. They finally caught up to the times and made their content sort of on demand now with the 24 hour rewind feature. It works great, but the reason I made it 4 stars instead of 5 is the fact that when you pause it for more than a couple minutes, the app will not hold your place correctly. For example if I pause and come back after 10 seconds or so it’s fine, but if I pause the stream and come back 5 or 20 minutes later it will either take me to the begging of the previous segment, or the beginning of the next segment. It won’t just stay where i paused it in the middle of a program.
Great app especially as we walk during the pandemic and need content
by Chiguine on 2020/12/06 14:22
I was frustrated with tune in dad was looking for an alternative and I found this great app and service. It’s pretty reliable and not too glitchy and the features are fantastic including being able to access podcasts and stations and pretty much anything you want to have in your ears while you take long walks or long drives. I find it comforting to listen to something during the pandemic. Thank you The only thing I wish I could do that tune in let’s you do is to continue listening while an email or text pops up and you check but I still appreciate the service and give it top marks
Horrendous
by RyanP1121 on 2020/05/09 12:05
I unfortunately use this app all the time to listen to one radio station I enjoy. The rewind feature is broken frequently. Sometimes if I pause while listening to a show, as soon as I resume it jumps to live and I have to figure out where I was. Other times, I will start the app and an endless commercial loop will run and the station I chose will never start unless I close the app and re-open. It’s actually completely embarrassing that a company of this size and value can’t get the interface on their app right. It’s like the competition is twenty years ahead. This app is so brutal that it inspired me to write the first negative app review I’ve ever written. Since it’s the only way to stream the live radio I am looking for, I guess I will continue to use it, but it truly is an unacceptable experience. This company seems absolutely lost when it comes to making a great interface and useable app when compared to their peers.
Audacy Radio
by smcvicker on 2021/08/27 19:56
I used this when it was Rdio and then I downloaded when it switched. Although this app is many times more stable than the older one was I gotta say this. I’m REALLY disappointed in the commercials. Not in having them. But In every single break in my local market I’m being spammed with the same commercial over and over and over again. To the tune of as many as 5 or 6 times in a row I hear the same commercial. Every time they break. Either it’s Olivia Munn, or the being a dad, or now the newest one which is the whole rewind that they’re doing for 9-11. I totally get the self promotion aspect of the industry. But this is so much spam that I’m seriously done using this app. I can’t take the same commercial 50 times and hour. Either fix this issue or sorry. You lost a customer cause I’ll go back to radio. At least there I can hear a mix of commercials
I love it and I hate it
by ppatato on 2021/07/04 16:55
I love this app because I can listen to my favorite and my local stations, even when I am not in my home city. I despise this app because of the way it acts on my iPad. The jump to live button never works. It freezes constantly. Sometimes, I don’t use this app for a few days. When I return to the app, the app will pick up where it left off, even though I have disabled that function. I don’t want to listen to the news in my local area from three days ago, I want to listen to what is happening now. In order to do that, I have to power down my iPad, then power it back up so that everything resets on the iPad, just to listen to live radio. It’s more bother than it’s worth. And your pop ups are really, really annoying. If this doesn’t get better, I will be deleting Audacy and go back to SXM.
Doesn’t play nicely with iOS 15
by EmmaJoy53 on 2021/10/03 14:06
Since I upgraded to iOS 15, this app no longer plays unless it is on screen. I can no longer listen to the Audacy radio when I am checking the weather or news. When my phone goes to the lock screen, Audacy stops playing. I’d be grateful if either Audacy or Apple might get address this! Updated review: Now, Audacy won’t play at all on my iPhone 11 running iOS 15. After several quits, it now gives silence even when the screen shows that it is playing. Although this app works fine on iOS 14, I have had to delete it from my iOS 15 phone. It’s frustrating, as one of my favorite shows is only available to stream on Audacy, and I can’t listen to it on my phone until you upgrade the app to work with iOS 15. I will try again after a week or two, but for now, Audacy is simply not usable on iOS 15. Please upgrade, I’ll revise this review when you do!
Annoying
by Kennett Toolsman on 2020/10/23 15:52
The only way I can listen to my favorite talk shows is thru this app. I wish it weren’t so because this app is frustrating. It’ll stop playing for no reason and when I look at my phone I hope to see the play arrow but instead I often see the pause icon which would leave one to believe that it was still playing. I’ll tap the icon but nothing happens so to get it going again I often have to shut it down and restart. This has been happening even before the iOS 13 updates I fear that since they have a captive audience their commitment to quality is questionable. And now I have to listen to several commercials before they connect to the talk show so I miss a couple of minutes of dialogue and this happens even after I’ve been already been listening. I’d pay for the app if they would eliminate the app commercial.
Cuts out all the time.
by Oswaldtvermin on 2020/01/03 14:27
Buffers and cuts out all the time, and won’t reconnect. I have to shut the app down and restart. I don’t have this problem with any other streaming service. The only reason why I even attempt to use this is because WGR 550 decided to go to this inferior product. However my patience is dwindling. How hard is it to fix a problem everyone else seems to have perfected? Update 6months later What a surprise. Not working again this morning on either my phone or echo. Hire someone to fix this. It’s pathetic. Update: now it seems that commercials will kick in during the program! After the commercials then the program goes to commercial....so guess what? More commercials! I’m missing whole segments of sports interviews. Congratulations.. you did it..I’m going back to an AM radio. BTW there is no way this app has 4.6 stars. Read the other reviews.
Certain commercials play and it freezes my audio while listening to a station
by JonBarone on 2020/12/21 14:19
The past 2 weeks, certain commercials (JC Penney and others) cause my audio to freeze and I almost always have to go to the beginning of a program and start from the beginning, then try to find where I last listened. I understand that when an “advertisement” is playing, we cannot fast forward but we are being punished by the app/audio freezing after having to listen to the commercial... often the same commercial we’ve had to listen to more times that I’d care to remember, during the same show. Really a big negative for me, more because of the hassle of attempting to reset back to last listen.
Most used app I have. Also most annoying
by Joe Fillm on 2021/04/11 15:52
On one hand I love this app. As I go about my day I can have my choice of music, podcasts or especially talk radio going in my mono ear bud. On the other hand the way ads are arbitrarily inserted right in the middle of programs, often at key times in the discussion or interviews gets on my last nerve. Also the repetitiveness of the same ads over and over becomes nauseating. I often listen to WBT Talk Radio station where the Progressive Insurance tongue twister ad for the Name Your Price tool is played so frequently I cannot listen to it anymore and pause it. As a result I will NEVER consider Progressive for my insurance needs.
Awesome.. And... Not so awesome
by le.coopsta on 2021/01/05 15:32
Is it amazing that we're able to listen to any radio station from across the whole country, yes. And for that, thank you. I really do love being able to listen any time. Also, thank you for making it available for us to rewind. It's great not missing anything on shows whenever I have to pause during work. All of that said, this app is constantly buggy. The rewind feature is 50% at best. Most of the time it won't even let you rewind, and when it does, it doesn't let you go far enough back. Then randomly I'll be able to rewind further. It's just super inconsistent. Again, so grateful that this is even available. But it seems like it wouldn't be very hard to get it working properly.
Needs work. Doesn’t continue to play.
by Tiffersnola on 2018/11/08 13:19
TOO MANY COMMERCIALS I LITERALLY LISTEN FOR 8 minutes and still haven’t heard the actual RADIO STATION. Back to iHeartRadio. Sometimes I get a call and it obviously takes precedence over the app and when I end the call I go back to the app and the radio does not continue to play either on its own because the call ended or if I’ve pressed play. No matter how long the call was. Same thing happens if a video pops up on Facebook I want to watch, I have to kill the app and reopen it for each instance. Slightly frustrating especially listening to my favorite morning show. No offense but iHeartRadio comes right back on, but I would like to listen local so I use it in the morning even though Kidd Kraddick Morning Show is nationally syndicated and I could listen to iHeartRadio on another station. So come on y’all! #firstworldproblems
Difficult Transition between live radio and commercials
by NewWave_Girl on 2019/04/30 15:27
The biggest issue with the app is that it doesn’t transition well between live radio and commercials. I frequently miss important contest information and fun interaction from on air hosts. The host will begin talking or it will cut to the middle of already in progress talking. Then it completely skips to the next song. This can be very frustrating since this is the only way for me to listen to my favorite station. In addition, the app will appear to be playing at times but you can’t hear the station. Additional annoyances maybe unrelated to the app are strange, retro like commercials played between songs. I would rather have dead air than listen to them. I like what the app has to offer it’s just not as smooth as it could be.
Crashes frequently
by Len9917 on 2019/10/23 03:57
I like using this app to listen to radio stations I enjoy from far away and listening to podcasts from a local radio station. I really want to give this app a higher rating but the app crashes a lot, often after a short podcast (~5-7 minutes) is done when it is supposed to play the next episode, and sometimes it crashes in the middle of playing. I thought it may be my phone at first but I’ve updated it a few times since I’ve gotten the app about a year or so ago and the problem only seems to be getting worse. I wish it wouldn’t crash so much, it’s very frustrating to have to open it again, wait for it to load, go to my subscriptions, and find where I was only for it to crash again shortly after.
Terrible App, Stay Away If Possible
by darabian on 2018/10/19 22:14
In a world where most changes are touted as an improvement, here’s an example of it not being true. This app falls terribly short from the previous TuneIn app. The designers/decision makers seem to not understand why consumers use the previous product, and created an alternative that was good for the company but not the consumers who use it. Functionality is terrible in the following ways: 1) constant connectivity issues —-> it takes way to long to start playing and with no buffering it cuts in an out. 2) user interface is not helpful—> I push play and have to guess (or just wait) to hear sound.. it can take up to 30 seconds using WiFi. 3) if you miss a comment you can not go back 10 or 15 seconds to hear what was missed. 4) where’s the pause button? I received a phone call while listening to the Gary Parish show and missed 2 segments since I couldn’t pause the show. 5) and speaking of no pause option, what ever happened to buffering? I could go on, but I hope my point was made, and you stay away from this app. I’m sure this app saves the communication company money, but it’s at the expense of quality and functionality to their customers.
Cannot “pause/play” on lock screen
by DaghenamDave on 2019/06/29 20:10
One simple feature this app lacks that should’ve been a no brainer to be included is that while listening to a radio station using the app, and your phone is locked, there is no “pause/play” button available from the lock screen. You have to go into the app itself to access the pause/play button. This is extremely annoying bc I’m usually on the go using the app and when i want to stop the radio from playing i don’t like to have to go thru these extra steps, I want to be able to stop radio play from the lock screen. Pandora and iTunes have this technology of being able to pause or play your music from the lock screen so one would expect this feature to be industry standards but I guess not. This review is from an iPhone user.
barely adequate, but what are you gonna do?
by R_Chandra on 2020/12/23 20:11
Don't be surprised if you get frustrated of you're doing anything other than listening to the live stream of the station. If you hear something OTA, and want to continue to listen on the stream, good luck with that, you might have to listen to a stream-only ad first, this missing part of the program. The Rewind feature doesn't always help for that, because the recording sometimes has minutes of dropouts. Sometimes you tap on controls (e.g. pause) and it's ignored. Because of the dropouts, the fwd/back 15 secs sometimes jumps around by minutes instead of seconds, and is generally a mess. Since the company doesn't do a standard stream, therefore you need this app, what are you gonna do? Rewind IS nice...when it works.
Largest app on my phone!!
by Lovemylittlegirl on 2020/07/22 18:55
The app does what its supposed to do but after years of streaming i noticed that this app takes up more space that my photos and videos. Turns out that the station I subscribed to placed hundreds of 2 to 5 min podcast clips on my phone. No big deal right. Just delete all. Except, there is no way to delete them all. I have to swipe and tap EVERYONE OF THEM. Takes 5 seconds each. This is going to take days to clear up. Warning! Check the podcast area and see how many you have that are just eating up space!!!! Update: Very responsive customer support (added a star). The easy solution is to delete the app and reinstall. Then make sure not to auto download podcasts.
Why
by Princess Angela Dove on 2019/10/15 13:03
I just updated the app last night and the rewind & fast forward buttons are gone. Why?! And it says in the update that now there’s an option to rewind our favorite songs if we want but I don’t see those options anywhere. It made it easier to switch stations with the rewind & ff button, now I have to go to every station and click on it just to listen. Please put it back the way it was. I was enjoying that. 😩 Other than that this app is the best!! My boyfriend from Greensboro introduced me to it last month! Made my day!! I can listen to all the music from the 80’s again 😍🙌
It's okay
by Kent927 on 2021/06/04 18:58
This app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a pain to use in the car if you don’t have CarPlay as it doesn’t have Siri integration and doesn’t have a “car mode” that would make buttons bigger and easier to use. Also, I have Alpha Media owned stations 30 miles from me that don’t show up as locals when I click “use my current location.” I believe I encountered the same problem when visiting family in Tulsa, where the locals are owned by companies other than Audacy. Not sure if this is a problem with the current location, or if it's an information problem, but I get the four Alpha Media stations as locals when I visit the website and not on the iPhone/iPad app.
It could be so much better
by Vinny Bush on 2020/03/13 17:36
This app has the potential to be great but falls very short with being able to consistently deliver what you require as a listener. The connection whether it’s WiFi or LTE is spotty, even when I’m not moving around or in my car. Example: I would be listening to the news and the app will just decide to cut out for 30 seconds to a minute or longer with radio silence, leaving me wondering what I missed and ultimately making it difficult to keep following that conversation since the disruption caused you to miss a ton of information upon reconnecting. They also took away the lock screen functionality that allowed me to switch between stations without opening the app. They’re basically making you open the app and select a new station or having you just sit through the same redundant commercials over and over again, which are god awful. It is free so as far as some of these issues go I can blame it on that I guess. I also work for a software company and see some of these issues as easy fixes to make using the app much more functional and user-friendly.
Awful if not listening live
by Five dollar hustle on 2020/11/13 19:59
The Rewind feature is buggy at best- which is the only reason to use this instead of a radio. Every use at some point it loses my spot- updates to live randomly, phone calls interrupt, app freezes, pausing is just asking for issues- Leads to too much time trying to find where it left off. If you listening live there are constant moments where the stream is dead silence. Small interruptions but they happen often enough that you notice it not happening when listening to an actual radio. 2 stars because it allows me to listen from anywhere my phone has service. But if you can podcast whatever it is you need this app for, that’s a much better option.
Rating kcbs radio 740am
by Grandma Eppy on 2019/09/29 05:29
I’m giving a rating of 3 right now because earlier today, sat sep 28, I wanted to get live news to hear the traffic report but unfortunately got some pre-recorded talk show or podcast. I kept trying to get “live” news without luck. I just got the Radio app so maybe I get something wrong but I don’t think so. Well I have it on now and I’m getting live news at 10:43pm. I’m sure I’ll upgrade later. I’ve been listening since 1972! Everyday then when I was working every day at HP Palo Alto. And now since I’ve retired I miss it everyday. Now since I now have an iPhone 8, I can listen everyday again! Thank you for the news, traffic, weather, sports and everything else.
Needs Apple Watch support and other fixes.
by hubieonekanubi on 2019/07/30 12:45
This app has had its ups and downs for me. I use it every day because it’s my only choice to listen to the show I like. It only works on my iPhone/iPad ( I exclusively use my iPhone)so if I want to leave the house and want to leave my phone at home, I can’t stream from my cellular enabled Apple Watch. On top of that, if I get a call or an alarm goes off, the stream will not resume playing automatically after the call or after dismissing it. Sometimes I can hit play from the lock screen, other times I must force quit the app to get it to resume playing. This is all on an XS Max running most up to date iOS. It Could be great but it’s mediocre at best and more frustrating than anything.
Needs improvement

I only downloaded this app to listen to the smiley morning show everyday because this is the only platform they broadcast content on, but honestly the app is so irritating. It constantly has delays, pauses, randomly shuts down, etc. I also have AirPods so I can’t even remove a pod to scratch my ear without it playing a freaking 30 second commercial when I put the pod back in. By then I’ve missed the whole skit. They also play additional commercials on top of what the actual company plays. The only reason I gave this two stars is because it plays the station I like to listen to when I’m not driving in my car, but I would rather buy a radio and tune it to my fave station than use this app.
Doesn’t resume when starting the car
by SouthJerseyKid on 2021/09/06 13:56
I really like the app overall, it is reliable and plays a lot of my favorite stations. However, one of the most annoying things is that when I get back in my car, it resumes play for about five seconds and shuts off. I have to sit in the parking lot, dig out my phone, and turn it back on again. I have tried the different settings, and they don’t make any difference at all. Sometimes it will remain on when I start the car up, but other times it won’t. You just don’t know when it’s going to do it.
Repetitive Ads that cut off the news stories before completed
by amsjs on 2021/09/17 10:38
I only listen to one station on this app. I listen to it every morning driving into work. WWJ950. The number of times you hear the same ad over and over and over is extremely frustrating. It will sometimes play the same exact ad back to back three times in a row. Just lately, these repetitive ads have started cutting into the news stories before they are even finished. It’s not even close. It seems to cut them off about halfway through their story. I am about to go back to listening to the station through the radio instead of this app.
Almost cried
by Shawncaradine9 on 2021/05/13 23:26
I was stuck in a loop of the same two commercials for 10 minutes earlier today. It’s not like I could have restarted the app at the time. I was driving. Also, whatever is being played will stop on its own. This is expected when my service drops. What is not expected is the station to not continue on its own. Again, I am driving, so it’s not the safest to restart the app. The play/pause button does not work until restarted. Lastly, I have had occasions where the station I would listen to would suddenly cut to a commercial from the app, not the station. I remember listening to sports talk a couple of weeks ago and the final stats for my team were immediately cut off. I got really emotional when I knew I could not listen to that in real time.
Crashes Often
by N'dour on 2021/08/21 14:35
The app randomly closes, stops, or completely crashes without any reason. There are times when it won’t connect, and you can continuously select the play button, but it gets caught in some type of infinite loop of not connecting. All of this happens on a strong WiFi connection. You can be listening to a radio show, open another app that’s unrelated , and one that has no audio or video, and the app just stops or closes. There’s no rhyme or reason. It doesn’t always crash, but it will surely happen, during every listening session. It is really poorly designed. I listen to one show on the app overnight and the app can’t even allow me to do that properly. Save your time. Not worth the hassle. I deleted the app. No more problems.
New features
by Smitty from Atlanta on 2021/05/20 12:10
App is okay, it does what it’s supposed to do allow you to listen to radio stations but it seems as with this last update 11.3.1 while listening on an iPad their annoying “what’s new prompts” appear and the only way to clear them is by clicking “next”. Well no problem for the prompts that appear in the middle of the screen, what about the ones that aren’t centered and the next is shifted off screen...no luck! I’ve been stuck on the “we’ve added audio sharing” prompt for the past week very annoying as these prompts render audio rewind in operable. Yeah I’ve contacted support, uninstalled/reinstalled app several times to no avail.
Worst audio app
by Brian8675309 on 2021/09/15 12:40
It’s really a joke how bad this app is, especially considering what a massive company is behind it. It constantly crashes! If you pause a show and try to restart it a short time later, you lose your place in the show probably 50% of the time, so you constantly have to manually find where you left off. This app needs a LOT of work. The Audacy app has stunk since it’s launch but this morning finally drove me nuts enough to come here and write a review. Unfortunately, if you enjoy some of the shows they offer, there aren’t many better options out there to listen to it. At the end of the day, the shortcomings definitely lead me to listen less (goodbye adverting dollars! 💸💸
Glitchy
by MHayman67 on 2020/03/10 18:01
This app is great for streaming my favorite radio shows (I’m a sports talk fan), but it’s very glitchy. Audio drops out all the time and I have to restart the app. If I take a call the app doesn’t always restart so I have to go back into the app and restart it. Same issues with the app cutting in and out in Apple car play. The audio will cut out, I’ll have to close the app, restart it, and do some backflips to get it to work again. I often just give up and listen to something else on a different app. Response: Instead of copy and pasting a response for us to email your developer to everyone that seems to have the same issue, why don’t you direct your developer to these comments and FIX YOUR APP!!!
Mixed feelings
by cyn318 on 2020/01/10 19:27
I Really Like being able to see the list of songs played, the artists, and the album covers! I also like to rate the songs. However, I REALLY WISH it was more Consistent. Often, several songs are played that are Not on the list, and that frustrates me. I hope to see this improve!! Thanks. (I think I wrote that review about May, 2019. ) It’s now January, 2020. Still inconsistent, but somewhat better overall, except that for the last week or so (??), there has been no album art. It’s as if the only guy who knew what to do went on vacation or quit!!?!!
Good idea with flaws
by Brewercraig on 2021/02/10 13:21
The app basically does what it is supposed to do, play your favorite radio stations. Unfortunately it has a playback option that allows you to hear the last 24 hrs. But it isn’t always a choice. It will pause playing if something interrupts it and then pickup where it was even10-15 minutes later. I can find no way to force it to always be live radio which is annoying. The app also has an issue with location. Even though I have my iPhone setting to share precise location the app indicates my market area to be Indianapolis or St. Louis or Kansas City not Milwaukee. Annoying. Really buggy. Shifts into playback mode fir no reason. Usually half an hour or one hour earlier. Not useful when you want live info only.
Still not impressed
by dchri92 on 2018/11/21 16:47
I’ve been using this app for a few months now...and I’m still not impressed. Not sure why the developers won’t add the option to pause the radio station I’m listening to. I miss that option the most since being forced to leave Tunein. Also, if I’m listening to the app through a Bluetooth speaker, when I turn the speaker off...the app quits playing on my phone and won’t start back up again when I hit play. When this app crashes, I usually have to completely restart my phone. With all the low ratings and complaints you would think they would fix things. I guess since most of us are stuck with them, they don’t have to.
Frustratingly annoying
by mitchfgf on 2021/05/11 23:26
This is probably the only app I have, and maybe will ever, take time to give a review on how bad it is. I moved from Connecticut to Texas, and mainly used this app to listen to WFAN New York sports radio. As Mets fan, I thought it would be good to use, since SNY does not have a Roku channel, this app and listen to the great Howie Rose. Boy was I wrong, I tune in early listen to the pregame on WCBS 880. Then the game starts, and it switches over to a news broadcast?!?! I check back with friends to make sure the game is on 880, and it is. I have tuned into WFAN randomly and gotten the Yankees game fine, and other baseball teams radio stations and had them streamed perfectly fine. Listening to a Mets game is apparently to difficult with this app. This is so pathetic considering other stations work fine.
It was 5 stars before rewind
by Ron750 on 2020/10/27 12:11
I use this App everyday because I live outside of the reception of Milwaukee Sports radio 1250AM. It is great to be able to hear about Wisconsin sports. Last year they added a rewind feature which I rarely use. Since then the app stops every time the stream is interrupted, by changing Bluetooth speakers, alarm going off, phone call, playing a video. It reverts to rewind and I have to close the app and open it again to get live again. Why have a jump to live button if it doesn’t work? Support says they can’t reproduce the problem, but other callers to the show say they have the same problem.
Worst app ever
by keld19 on 2019/12/04 19:10
Unfortunately this app has a few shows that I like to listen to otherwise I would have erased it long ago. The “upgrades” they’ve added - rewind, fast forward, pause etc have been available on the other radio apps for years. And work so much better! Without fail, the app freezes or skips forward when you’re trying to rewind not just once but several times in the span of 1 or 2 hr show. If I get a phone call or I accidentally hit the Siri button, it fails and I have to close it, reopen it and try to get back where I left off. Which is a real test of patience If I could give negative stars I would, esp when compared to iHeartRadio radio or tunein or any of the other radio apps that are far superior
I’d like it more
by jss0301 on 2021/09/12 13:25
I like the different type of content available on the app. I’d like it more if some obvious bugs were fixed. For example I like the rewind feature since I can’t always listen live but it just stops after one of the commercial breaks and then when you hit play it restarts back at the beginning of the program. On the National mix programs it will stop about 30 second after starting and just pause and when you hit play it restarts at the beginning. Also it will stop a number of song in and just restart playing the same series of songs. Good app but frustrating
