Audacy - Latest Quality Issues
Android
Oct 23, 2021
Absolute garbage app. Shows the correct song being streamed (radio) 0% of the time and is completely incompatible with Android Auto. I hate that I need this app to stream a radio station in my area that was taken off FM and moved exclusively to HD Radio.

Slow to load radio shows. Whether its on demand, lice, or rewind, 50% of the time I open the app, it just sits and load the show. I'll close the app, then reopen and it loads right away. App doesn't really crash, but just won't load. If you set playback to 1.2, it causes even more issues. Especially if you rewind a show. It'll play fine, hit a commercial and then jump to live. It also will juat throw in a random commercial with playback set to 1.2. The worst streaming app I've used

Audacy
App has lots of radio stations nationwide crossing most genres. But the app's functionality and navigability are just awful. What's more, the app is aggravatingly choked around the clock with ads on a listening-time, volume and number-per-station basis. Finally, the app's technical support team is lazy, unknowledgeable and pretty much worthless.

Spotty at best
Updating my rating just to say it's a great app. If you like random shutdowns. Listening to something and it just stop playing what you are listening to and switching to something totally different, or jumping ahead 30 minutes. Or it stops working anytime after you get a notification on your phone. Has potential. But it has gotten worse since Audacy took over.

I love using this app, except for the buffering during music playback. I would like to be able to skip a song, or replay it. The app is easy to use, but all I use is music playback. I don't listen to podcasts or other options. Every time I use the app, it always starts with an ad.

App constantly won't start when opened unless I close it and then open it again multiple times.

Great when it works, but crashes often.

Randomly stops. Randomly stops and starts at a different points prior to wear I was. Almost always sends me back in time at the end of a show , new one doesn't start. Does not always come back on after a phone call. Have to restart it several times during a broadcast. Not many options for using another app for the station I listen to.

Repetitive Extremely Socially Biased Advertisements. Annoying to the point the ads distract from the focus of the radio programming. Uninstalling.
