Most users of the app are happy with the selection of songs, but a large majority have complained about its slowness. A few have had the app itself crashing! Tags of "clunky" are prominent too in the criticisms. What's more, it seems that you don't really get the entire song to tune into, but barely a few seconds.

On the upside: The latest version of the app was updated in August this year, with stability fixes and an optional push notification.
