I think this has been discussed on the board already. When using the WTKA app it shuts down a few minutes into the podcast. I tweeted at the Michigan Insider and got a reply, they said that Wi-Fi and bars of service were the biggest indicator of proper streaming. Mind you I have Verizon with full bars of service and Wi-Fi while at work when I attempt to listen to the podcasts. What gives ???
OT: WTKA APP
Never had any luck with it either. I just download the podcasts on iTunes.
I didn't know I could do that. So much more efficient !!! Thanks !!!!
Happy to help.
using TuneIn Radio.
Why the hell is Rico on with Ira right now?
a well deserved one too
I don't have any problems. I'm on Sprint.
works like a charm, never have any issues
It was just me. Tunein works like once a week for me.
When I use tune in, sometimes it just plays commercials nonstop. Doesn't happen with other stations I listen to.
I have Sprit and the app fails way more often than it works for me.
I have ATT and an Iphone and I've never gotten a podcast to play for more than 1 minute regardless of signal strength.
I used to download the podcast daily on Itunes, but about a year and a half ago the podcast was no longer on the itunes podcast list. Are you saying that it is back up? If so, I am downloading it now.
I believe that WTKA stopped offering them on iTunes. But someone else seems to be uploading them (listed as amateur when you search WTKA).
After someone suggested doing so I web to iTunes earlier and did download a podcast from them
Someone mentioned wtka didn't have the funds to fix their apps so the podcasts would work. If so, and if anyone has any connections there, maybe we could do a kickstarter??? I enjoy listening to the podcasts on the way to work here in Chicago but often miss large chunks of the show.
They should remove it from the app store until it is fixed. Every day I would try to listen to the podcast and everyday I would be pissed at the station after a few minutes. And for some reason since the app ame out I can never listen Sam's show on TuneIn (I think it used to get repeated during the day which was great).
I completely deleted the wtka app.
I use the app called 'Pocket Casts' on my iPhone. If I remember correctly it costs $2 but I've had zero problems listening to the WTKA podcasts. It's not a live stream, but you can listen to the different segments shortly after they are aired. It's not perfect, but I think it's worth it.
The iHeartRADIO app works well for the live stream on iPhone.
