Crashes too often to be useful. Radio stations were easier to find on previous version.

Tha ABC app rocks Whilst there definitely improvements to be made the ABC is one of my favourite sources of news and other media. The app is certainly nicer to navigate on a tablet or phone than the website. #SaveOurABC (and protect the content)

Still one or two bugs in the Listen Live function. The app sometimes closes itself of its own accord while I'm listening to the radio. Please fix! Otherwise, perfect app.
