Love it but Love the app, but it won't stop unless I do a serious force stop. BAD.

I LOVE CLASSICAL MUSIC!! Just one thing though ... could you please make the app compatible for tablets? That would be a 5 star deal ...

Like it, but.... Just tried on my Samsung Galaxy S4. I like playing different streams but there is no way to "exit" or close the app. Had to do force close to stop playing.

Great, but As another commenter notes, almost impossible to close it. In fact, I haven't figured out how to close it. So do I install/uninstall every time I want to listen? Otherwise, it's great to have my favorite station available.

Simplified But Overly Simplified I started using the WQXR mobile app, at its debut (whenever that was). I installed it on my iPod Touch and used it occasionally. When there was radio interference (a common casualty of a weak transmitter signal) this was an alternative. Now I use the device on two Android devices, including a Motorola phone. Wouldn't you know - the latest edition of the software doesn't even (as far as I can find) preferences. Every morning, upon my phone, there is a blinking light signaling me about some WQXR content I shouldn't miss. It's outrageous that someone thought forced notifications was a grand idea. It's not. If this keeps up without a solution, no more QXR app for me. I realize the not-for-profit market out there is tight, but this is not the way to guarantee attention. Being able to listen to the different channels is fine, but the programming of the software is at issue.
