Love WNYC.... but The app is terrible with too many bugs. The tool that picks out "gems" when you select which categories and how much time you have does not let me reselect different categories.

Not intuitive, many crashes/FCs Sometimes player keeps playing with no indication that it's on. Much too often, I see the "start playing" triangle when it's already playing an on-demand stream. Touching the triangle makes the app stop (and crash). This is a real problem when you're playing something on-demand and you can't see the progress bar, pause the stream (and then restart). And after you think you've exited the app, the "headphones" icon is still there in the notification tray at top of screen, and you can't X-close it - you need to FC. Alas, this app need some serious work. (OnePlus One, KitKat)

Needs a lot of improvement. I started using this with bluetooth headphones. I would say 60 percent of time, it fails to work. I went back to regular headphones and the Android FM app. Lots lf bugs, and loses the stream a lot. Also, no way to stop a stream once you initiate it, or change your mind. Being an IT developer--this is not that great an app, and has a long way to go. Reminds me of shoddy indian programmers coding this app.

Poor execution, limited selection 90% of the time if i try to play something while on 4G it doesn't play. Also only a select fraction of new episodes of each show are available on the app. I usually have to go to the mobile site to get the episode i want to hear. Also having to scroll the a giant list of shows is ridiculous. Basically this entire app appears to have been made by a company that knows design but has no idea how to develop a functional app or a usable user interface.
