Alejandro Coss

Love it but random shut down I love this app since I'm not in the Houston area and can listen to jams miles away but I think the design could be better seem to basic and when I'll drive it'll randomly stop playing music so I have to open the app up again and press play

LaToya Walker

Will not load Constantly states unable to connect to live audio. Uninstalling

Christopher Vallere'

Love this app..... But now I have to update & keep getting sent to iTunes. There is no update available for this app in the Google Play Store. As far as I know iTunes has nothing to do with the Android system making this update virtually impossible. When this issue is resolved and my app is updated to the point where I am allowed to listen to the station again I will give 5 stars.

Ebony Washington

It's broken I used to love this app but now it just skips and repeats like a broken record. I have no idea what's wrong with it.

Patricia Harling

Spencer McClendon

Love the station, app needs some help. This app needs some work. Yeah all the basic functions are there but there could be more.

Baeren Rubenstein

Good app Love this station in the car... But I don't understand why the app request root access.?

Deedra Terrance

Music-no....Ads-yes I can not get it to play in the background like before but the ads are ticking away. why not offer 2 apps.. one that is just a player and one that has twitter feeds etc. I just want to listen to the music while I work or exercise. I am not looking at the phone. I bet if it was just a player.. it would work like a charm... consider both... it would take up less space and use less resources on my phone as w

David Garza

I only use it for Sunday nights dj Michael 5000 watts.. screwston tx

Miles Bishop

Mimi Snowden

The Best 97.9 the Box

Tara Hardrick

Seriously? I waited to rate this app just to give the developers time to work out the bugs but unfortunately that was a waste of time. I love the app when it works. I've never been able to get it to open on the 1st try, it always takes a minimum of 2 times. It frequently shuts down for no reason, I don't even have to be touching the phone and the app will inexplicably just stop. I would say it's my phone but I have 2 and it does the same on both. I know it's a free app but come on, I know you can do better than this.

A Google User

It keep cutting off and freezing! What's going on what about Android it's not working


Hottest dj in the city Generations on entertainment

Deborah Jo Hendrix

H town Magic I'm originally from the Houston area but work and live on the east coast now. All I'm missing now is a box of Frenchy's Chicken and some Timmy Chan's.

Brittany Durden

Love Hate Love the station and turn it on religiously but the app crashes and completely spa my phone to the point of reset. Please fix this issue. In the words of JQ... And thank ya

Karl Hubert

Grew up on this station They need to stay out of people's business and stay on the classic mixes.

A Google User

Love this station but It crashes every 5 minutes. Won't restart till u open then app.

Shane Holden

Crash The app keeps turning itself off

Robert Turner

Love the Station hate the app I use this app every morning to listen to Mad Hater Morning Show. It crashes a lot and restarts even if i get a notification. So 2 stars to the app not enough stars to rate morning show its worth the trouble of me putting up with this app but after 10am when they're done this app is done. Might be why the station loses listeners after 10. No one wants to deal with the app after that.

Stephanie Johnson

WHY DOES IT KEEP crashing Please WORK ON THIS it's embarrassing TO BE jamming ONE minute or listening to a GOOD topic discussion and THE app STOPS or freezes THANKS

William Terrell

My app is not working anymore....

Deborah Jo Hendrix
