App plays stream unreliably, often crashes, loads slowly, can't save an episode to the phone for playing later I love NPR and contribute regularly, but this app has had astoundingly bad behavior on my Motorola and Samsung phones. This is the future of radio, so it boggles me that NPR's streaming and client technology is so behind and not a priority. So many other streaming programs work excellently (e.g Google Music, Amazon MP3, podcasts) -- why can't they get this right? If it's a funding issue, they should open source the client so bugs can be fixed for free. Or they should run a kickstarter to fix it.

Does not work at all No stream, no text news, excessive permissions requirements. Big disappointment on Galaxy TAB 10.1

Simply Terrible Great fan of WBUR, but the app is absolutely useless. I have Samsung S5 and the stream never works. Some of the reviews say that it takes about 7 minutes for the stream to work, but I have not had the patience to wait all that time.

Never seems to work The design is perfect but it crashes or simply won't load about as often as it does work. On the verge of parting ways to eliminate the frustration

Often doesn't work It's so frustrating. The spinner goes around and around, but the audio never starts. It's like a random app, and it's working less and less.
