Great Station ...Flakey App The app has no off switch. You must either force the app to stop (a multiple step process) or restart the phone altogether. If you are moving and the WiFi signal switches from one source to another the current WNYC announcement thanking who ever will interupt the programming. Today I had to listen the same "tripit" "ADVERTISMENT" a half dozen times in a 15 minute timespan. The app switches the listening mode to "headset" but offers no way to switch it back to normal. Call it a Beta test

I want to love it I love WNYC, but this app isn't doing the trick. I can't "save" podcasts to listen to them offline, even after they swear to have downloaded to my device over Wi-Fi. The app is so slow that even something as basic as scrolling can become a big project

Crashes all the time I love the app--or I would if it worked right. It crashes so frequently that there are times I just give up and switch to listening to music. Sometimes I get the "unfortunately WNYC has stopped working" with an option to submit a report, other times, it simply stops. This started after an update a few months ago. Nothing's changed since the most recent update It frequently stops when I try to switch from one podcast to another -- either after it finishes or before. It frequently stops when I wake up the screen even before I have a chance look at the app. It frequently stops when I switch to another running app. It frequently fails to restart after pausing during a phone call. It even sometimes stops in mid sentence for no apparent reason during a podcast when the phone is just sitting in my pocket. I emailed WNYC last week about the app and received a response that because of the winter membership drive they didn't have time to respond right now. It's April. It's not winter, and there's no membership drive going on. As a member of WNYC, it's disappointing that it's so difficult to listen using this app which they prominently promote to their listeners.
