I wouldn't bother with this app at all if I didn't like the radio station. The developers really don't care about the reliability of the app otherwise they would make it more stable. Good radio station, it deserves an app that works!

App is crashing constantly last few days. When it comes back on I get that stupid Burger King Ad then cuts of again. Rinse and repeat. Please sort it. I need my fix

I'm giving the app 1 star because 1. The app continues to play even after I have force closed it. 2. I have notifications switched off but I get the Talksport app trumpet sound from hell randomly which scares the bejaysus out of me.

Adds adds adds, between now tv and bk adds randomly playing, you miss lots of content, its already bad enough with talksport having more breaks than snooker tournament.

Still have Issues signing in ,told to refresh as they have issues ,even uninstalled and still not able to sign in,what a waste of time,its a joke, sky are only 1 star better,the issues have been ongoing for nearly 3 years looking at past reviews,sort this joke app out or take it away for good,and stop the live broadcasting of sport for good. See nothing back from anyone in charge,not worth trying to log in utter shambles

Cuts out since update if you don't leave it on the screen on your phone which kills the battery. Poor

Buffers regularly. Asks me to confirm my email address but never sends the confirmation email. Imagine listening to a football match and it cuts out every few minutes. That's the BorkSport app.

This has always been my go to app but where has the drop down option from my notifications gone, so I can pause etc when required? I have to go into the app each time, where it also keeps asking me to sign in, which then tells me it hasn't worked but I can still access it. This is becoming ver combersome and what with the ever changing talksport agenda, is pushing me away from what used to be an amazing radio station. Edit This has got worse. I can no longer log in not reset my password.

I love listening to talk sport. When the app actually works and doesn't crash every 2 minutes. I suppose I don't like listening to it since it's very rare it works properly.

Love the app easily my favourite. However sometimes (very rarely)I have an issue playing talksport in that I get no sound yet talksport 2 is fine. Any ideas why?

The version available in Ireland has too many local advertisements which frequently interrupt live chat indiscriminately

The app wants you to register, until recently, you pressed the back button once and you could listen to it without registering.

Awful, lasts for no more than a few minutes then cuts out, occasionally comes back on, but mostly you have to touch screen or even restart app completely. Come on people get it sorted

Very disappointing. As with some other users, I'm finding the app just drops off constantly, and have had to give up listening to the cricket. Signal here is fine, and no problem with other apps.

Pure shite if you want to listen to content with the screen off and yes I've whitelisted it in settings. If you want to make it work let me know, I work in app development.

Terrible unusable it just cuts out then doesn't come back on. I'm up to date with latest version have a pretty new handset. I've deleted this from my phone...Review update 22/3/2022 I have been patient with this app for a long time I've also changed phones always running latest updates and it does same thing radio plays then stops I know it's not my connection etc I've downloaded Radioplayer app and Talksport works perfectly even when I listened live on web it cuts out periodically.

Very disappointed that you can't play back in a live show. Also would assume the live video feed of certain shows would be on here too. This app could be so much more

Of all the streaming apps I use, this is easily the worst. Drops out, stops or crashes every 5 minutes. I don't get this with any other app, so it's not my network at fault. If it wasn't for the fact that some live football games are exclusive to talksport, I wouldn't touch this app with a barge pole.

Total rubbish. No other features that I use apart from listening to the radio. They then want you to sign in .... why.... I don't sign in and give marketing information when I use the car radio or other radio apps. Just use any radio app. What's better is now I am not using it I listen far less and now more to other radio stations

Audio keeps cutting out, so barely usable. As such, talkSPORT having exclusive rights to cover England test cricket is an absolute tragedy.

Love the station guys. But I'm in Ireland and the app crashes every time I try to use my phone for something else. The app use to always play continuously on my device no matter what I needed to do on my phone. And it just starts playing adds in the middle of shows that are live.please fix this guys. Will continue to listen but just frustrating

I have re installed this app for Android on several occasions but it does not work properly. Unless I have the app open it plays for 20 secs then drops out. This happens all the time so it is impossible to listen to while on the move so is a waste. Please can you fix this fault!?

The app crashes on opening then reopens also stops playing for no reason so you have press play again which is frustrating. I've only had it a couple weeks but thinking of getting rid and finding a more reliable radio player . Shame as I enjoy listening to the station

Crash crash crash. Uninstalled, restarted then reinstalled, crash. LG V40 ThinQ Android 10 Edit: Turned off private adguard dns and app works as expected. Draw your Ian conclusions alt how badly an audio streaming app has to be engineered if it doesn't work when ad servers are filtered.

This was my favourite app until the last update. I haven't been able to use it since the most recent update because the app does not start at all. It closes immediately I open it. UPDATE: I have deleted and reinstalled the app 4 times now, same issue persists. I use a Samsung Galaxy s20 Ultra. Also, the link provided to fill the form does not work.

Constantly cutts off. I had this app installed ages ago and deleted it because it was that bad. Installed it again and it's no better. The volume cuts off for around 5 seconds and then comes on again having missed the content. Very poor

This app had to be the worst app that I have the misfortune of using. The interface looks like it was a submission for a my first android app class and the media player doesn't even work properly as it regularly stops playback and restarts the show from the begining. And to add to the annoyance I'm getting adverts from the US rather than the UK Edit: App last updated on 19th Oct to version 9.0.8514. Issues only appear to have got worse...

New app is so much better. Well done. However, it drains my battery ALOT!!! Tried turning off background use but then rightly so the app stops all the time. Big Improvements but please address battery draining issue. Samsung s20. Latest app installed and up to date Android version.

Not a great app don't know if anyone else has this problem but once I have the app on it keeps losing the radio feed and the sound and drops out alot. In the end I just uninstalled the app and didn't bother with it. Have no problems with BBC sounds app.

Keeps stopping at random points when you're listening back to a previous show and goes back to beginning. Like the station itself, cheaply made with no quality control checks whatsoever. EDIT: Two months on from this review and from contacting the developers directly, bugs still not fixed and developers haven't even acknowledged the ticket. App is useless really.

After reading previous bad reviews I gave it a go anyway. DON'T BOTHER. It's just an email capture scam. No way is it a genuine attempt at a radio app, it's just soooo bad. Cuts out and returns to the beginning when playing past shows. Trying to fast fwd, it pauses... EMBARRASSINGLY BAD.

Always says there's something wrong when I open the app then it's always cutting out when I'm listening. It also runs about 2 to 5 mins behind so when I'm listening to live sport I'm hearing cheers from neighbours well before it's reported on the app. 08 Oct 21 After almost 3 months from my previous review there has been no improvement on the app. To put it bluntly, it's useless. It still cuts out and still runs slow (even after restarting the app numerous times as advised). Such a pity.

Absolutely terrible app, 0 stars if possible. Listening back to a show is nigh on impossible, I dont think iv ever been able to listen to a full segment between breaks (15 minutes) without it cutting out, and even listening live it cuts out regularly cuts out, no matter what device I listen on. Sort it out

I mean, my god. You'd have thought, having 'exclusive rights' to 1730 games would have so effect on how well the app works. It doesn't. Don't, whatever you do, do anything when listening to a match on the app, other than listening to the app. Everything, including breathing, thinking, or missing Mobdro, will cause it to crash. Sometimes not even that. Sometimes it'll go 'nope, that'll do' and crash of its own free will. If there is an alternative, please tell me, because this is embarrassing

It's redundant, I downloaded because they haven't been putting the Jim White and Simon Jordan show on YouTube and I thought hey their app may give me the ability to start the show pause, play, and rewind. How naieve I was to believe in such privilege. Even the catchups are bombarded with irrelevant advertisements. You guys have to put in the ability to fast forward 300 seconds like on YouTube streams so we can skip the ads.

Great radio and I listen every day. This app is garbage tho. Without perfect service it's absolutely useless. Better sound quality than TuneIn but means nothing when the decision comes down to "does this app actually work?"

Alright for listening to shows but haven't used any of the other features apart from the recently added sleep function which is good. App does weird things like cutting to adverts and stuff at random times and some nights there are loads more adverts than normal which makes it unlistenable then.

Even though I have notifications turned off fully. I still get the stupid talkSPORT trumpet notification sound. Which has caught me out a few times at inappropriate moments. So I've had to uninstall.

So the pros: listening to live stations works well. The app interface is pretty simple and clean Cons: this app doesent function well. Listening live there's no notification controls which would be perfect. Whilst listening sometimes it just stops and the app needs restarting. Also when listening back to catch-up on my favourite shows like the euro sports bar it just stops and I press play again and I lose where I was up to very annoying bcuz Im a new listener & Adam caterall is my favourite

There's currently a problem with talksport2. No transmission at all. I had removed the app and installed again, wanted to sign in and was requested for the password which I don't remember unfortunately. App says it sent the reset password but I didn't receive anything and still waiting. Please fix this before EFL season starts. In the meantime I received an email to reset the password. But access time has expired. Requested again. Wonder when it arrives...

The app always worked fine for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it for many hours every day. Then this morning it said iit had to be updated or wouldn't work. It wouldn't update so I unadded iit, hoping to simply reinstall it but it wont allow me to do that either now I'm without talksport. Thanks a lot.

Nice and clean easy to use app but only radio based. Also if you pause via buds you have to reopen app to play again which is irritating. Also would be better if you had headlines, news, breaking news, results etc etc.

Really poor, the app works, until you lock the device, then about a minute or so later, the app will crash and loose where you were. Not worth it, im having to listen to it though the Firefox app instead. It dose alow you to lock your device, and runs fine in the background of other apps.

Shocking app, constant crashes or refuses to load at all. The podcasts just stop for no reason, really disappointing but still I persevere, as the live online feed is even worse. It's 2021, come on talkSPORT, this is basic tech stuff, much smaller company's apps are really reliable.😡

App stops stream everytime the phone screen is off. Kind of defeats the object of listening on the move. Have no similar issue with other Radio streaming services.

This app makes far too many ad, privacy & tracking DNS requests for my liking. As a privacy concerned user, fully making use of PiHole etc, I'm shocked at the type of requests this app makes. I allowed some, but you require all to be unlocked and for me, and my privacy, it does not sit well. I'll use another service to listen in that invades a user far less.

App is good in terms of functionality, but the delivery isn't as good. Any notification I get when listening on catch-up causes the app to stop and you then have to scroll to find where you were again. Also, push notifications seems to come on every now and then even after I've turned them off.

Ric Paa
May 6, 2021
The push notifications/updates now show nothing. I assume there is a breaking sports story or live game but it just says Talksport the last few weeks. Even when they did work it would male more sense for live coverage push notifications to occur before the game starts, not after a goal or half time.

App Annoyingly stops a couple of mins after lock screen is on. Would be a fantastic app if this could be sorted! I have resorted to another app until put right. When sorted it will be 5 stars from me. YAY THANK YOU FAIR PLAY TO YOU, APP IS NOW PERFECT, SO PLEASED YOU'VE FIXED THE ABOVE PROBLEM. 5 STARS NOW. 👏👏👏👏👏👍👌 App has started to stop again and cut off when screen locks. Like I said above, I will again be going to use another app until this is sorted!

Uninstalling cos it keeps telling me to lock my screen to register. I registered years ago for one, for 2 I don't WANT my lock screen on. That's my choice, NOT YOURS! BBC I player, itv hub etc doesn't ask me to turn my lock screen on,in fact NO other app asks me to do this, so why are you? Especially an app that rarely works! 😂 sort your app out instead of telling me what to do with my phone. Ridiculous. Smh. 💩

Shocking. Have reinstalled a few times on my new S21 phone. Same issues as on P20Pro. Can't sign in but app allows me to listen anyway. However the cricket drops out every few minutes and I have to hit the play button every time. Very frustrating. Oh and Mark Nicholas should be replaced. Mark Butcher and Darren Gough are excellent.

Cannot give ZERO STARS. Only use this for the England cricket. The commentary team are great but the app is appalling. Keeps "oops"ing on startup, asks for re-verification of email address occasionally and KEEPS STOPPING WORKING. India at 235/5 and I have missed 2 wickets so far. Uninstalled and reinstalled again and cannot get it to play at all. Captive but unhappy user.

Good app - but since a recent upgrade every time you open it states "something went wrong" and also it keeps putting on "push notifications" despite switching them off. Cmon Big Al, the moose, Durham, Cundy and Goldstein - sort it out ! Your having a mare

Barely does the required job. There are only two stations yet navigation is problematic (too small a target for the arrows). No apparent feature to pause/rewind live broadcast. Requires registration with an email address for no reason whatsoever.

Love talkSPORT, but this app is diabolical. It cuts out non-stop and is so unreliable. Instead, I'd suggest listeners try the talksport listen option on the web through their mobile devices (wireless). Using this option instead now and it hasn't cut out once. Shame because the original talkSPORT app was brilliant & had podcasts of the Two Mikes, for example. Now we've an app which just does not function properly. The 2 stars are solely because I love the station & there's a nice interface.

Cuts out regularly. Poor, poor and poor again. Please stop playing the international cricket. Its so annoying having to restart the app every 10 minutes. It's depressing.

Crashes occasionally and sometimes the schedules won't load/display. But the biggest drawback for me is the lack of a rewind facility for live streams. So if you join late and miss the start of a programme you can't skip back and listen from the start. BBC Sounds is far better in that respect.

Talksport have bought the rights to the cricket and yet we are unable to listen to the whole days coverage on catch up at a more convenient time, (the tests start in the middle of the night). We were able to do this with the BBC sounds. Not many people are up at 3.45 in the morning. The BBC losing the rights is a disaster for cricket fans.

Useless app. Always closing unexpectedly. If using the Catch Up feature, at always crashes and then starts again at the beginning of the program. Infuriating.

Would give 0 stars. Constantly cuts out during live feed and catch up, but the funny thing is when I'm trying to listen live, even if I listen through the web browser it still cuts out, so there's a deep-rooted problem there that will perhaps never be fixed, rendering this app pointless. Will find another app to listen on.

I love listening to talksport. I usually listen to playback of shows, which is a great feature. However, the app is useless. It constantly stops, sometimes every minute or two. When you try and get it to play it switches back to the start of the program. Its very annoying and at times to much hassle. Great station, but useless app.

Playback feature on Android mobile device has been consistently broken over a long period of time. Every few minutes, the programme will automatically pause. There are then instances that when attempting to resume, actually leads to a complete restart.

Other radio apps are much better for listening to talk sport. I use radio uk and only use this app if I want to listen to catch up. Even then it constantly cuts out and it doesn't save where you were up to so you have to manually find it. Annoying at best.

Continously cuts out. Impossible to listen consistently for more than 30 minutes. This happens on both live events and the listen again future. Other radio apps just play without the need to keep re opening the app on your phone

Great radio station, poor app. Constantly disconnects and you have to open it up again. Also, less of an issue but always opens with a "complete registration " notification which if you click on just takes you into the app.

Much easier to say 'Alexa play talksport'. App would not connect, so completely useless. Found it was on Alexa anyway, so if you want this radio station through the internet much easier that way. Else via Freeview, sky, MW.

Poor quality, consistently cutting out and often will not play at all. Connection is fine with stable and fast broadband and no issue with other similar apps.

Possible the worst app I've come across. Refuses to play throught my phone however connects to my car's Bluetooth some times and when I say sometimes I mean when I switch from dab radio to Bluetooth it plays for about 5 seconds and then stops. On top of that the talksport website refuses to play live audio gets as far as the video advertising then fails to open the player, honestly it's 2020 this isn't new tech and it's a damn shame as your my go to radio station when I drive to and from work.

When switching off wireless headphones, it goes straight to speakers, which is annoying at night. Also plays a lot louder than other apps. Better off listening via the web.

Yes - after 4 attempts at un-installing your App (today 05/09/2020) and re-installing it again I am getting the message "UPDATED VERSION AVAILABLE UPDATE VIA GOOGLE PLAY". Well it won't install and doesn't now work. I have a Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). If I want to listen to your station I will have use another Multi Station radio App. Your App is the pints!

Downloaded removed uninstalled redownloaded etc etc your channel won't open up.... I've been a listener to talksport for many years but I'm now losing the will to keep attempting to listen via my phone anymore. But of a shame really as I'm a lorry driver and listen via Bluetooth all day long.

What's going on, I use the app all the time but just tried on my Samsung tablet, it says there are WiFi issues but nothing's wrong. Tried uninstalling it but didn't fix it! Think it's to do with the new log in screens.

Absolute garbage, does nothing when you press play on a stream. On the 1/100 time it does start the audio often crashes or buffers. Uninstalling.

Really poor. Worked fine the last time I used it in early March. Now updated and won't launch due to "please check your wifi or data connection and start again". Uninstalled and reinstalled, problem persists.

I have been listening Talksport recorded podcasts regularly at work for over six months. Great app with one major bug. It works smoothly for long time until you pause it or pause automatically after receving phone call. After that it run again but stop a soon as screen saver times out.. To fix it I always have to check the clock of the podcast, close the app, restart and go back to the point I was before. It takes about 30sec and distruct me from work. I would love if you can fix this bug. Phil

Woeful performance from the Talksport app for the last 2 to 3 weeks now. Radio keeps cutting out, schedules won't show properly and the catch up feature is only working intermittently. Just at a time when I really do need it whilst stuck at home due to the Coronavirus lockdown.

It's the most unreliable app possibly that I have ever downloaded. It cuts out while listening for no reason, currently I can't even get the schedules to appear on the screen. I have uninstalled and re installed but sadly it's just a poor app. Easier to listen through the website.

However now, it's just stopped working. Hasn't loaded for last 5 days. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled.....it now doesn't open at all.

Can anyone actually access this app? As with other reviewers I can't get past the second registration screen. It then politely tells me that something went wrong! (Really? I hadn't noticed!) It then tells me that I can carry on and access the app and register later. A blatant and very frustrating lie! 0I have tried to reinstall 4 times now and have given up. Can't properly review the app as I have been totally unable to access it.

Really like the Talksport idea, really wanted to get the app for a better uninterrupted feed but can't get past the second page of registering. Saw another review, something similar about Android fones not able to use app. Shame, very poor app for such a good station. Tnx for the quick reply, very impressed with that but no better. Still getting stuck on step 2 of 2, page freezes. So, either you did nothing and hope enough click onto site to fool ratings or you have no control over the app.

Samsung note 9 Used to work brilliantly until they updated the app to the newer version. Since then it just stops by itself and starts when you unlock your phone or randomly by itself. Really disappointed as it is the app I use the most. Update, I've uninstalled and installed the app multiple times now and although it works fine for a while it inevitably fails after a few days. Why? Sick of it. Update, since my last review I still have to reinstall the app over and over again!

Too many problems over the last year or so with this app. So gone back listening on the tv, which I don't listen to, too often now because I don't watch much tv, I mainly stream. Never mind another dissatisfied person. If i could rate zero, that would be my true score, whomever helps to put this app together, just shouldn't!!!!!

Warning!!This app will eat your mobile data and cost you money! I mainly use this app to listen to the cricket via WiFi. I have realised it keeps trying to connect via mobile data as a result of receiving a notice that my data plan was running out. I checked my daily data usage and unbeknown to me it was using 200mb+ a day on the days the Test Matches were on. i have now disabled mobile data when using it and it stalls every 15-20mins and prompts me to connect via mobile data. There are no options to do anything under settings - just a blank screen?? Finally, it keeps asking me to register, which I can't do.

I would have given this app 0 stars but it wasn't an option. I have an android phone and tablet and cannot get past the personal details screen when trying to create a login (only half of the required fields are displayed on my phone). This app probably works adquately on an Apple device (I don't actually know if it does) but on latest Android software it is useless. And it is a surprisingly cheap looking app for an organization as big as Talk Radio. Disappointing.

As apps go this is a poor one. Bad layout and unintuitive design means a poor user experience, as does requiring me to register. The worst part are the random breaks of 5 seconds or more if your phone is locked while using the app (Samsung S7). Happens at least once a minute on average. Not to mention it looks ugly. Needs a complete overhaul.

Love talk sport, don't want to give a 1 star review but literally what choice do I have short of not leaving a review and just accepting that it doesn't work and there's no point trying...

This is a huge improvement over the previous app. It's easy to use and much more stable. However, the old app offered content based on your location, specifically the international commentaries on PL games, which this one doesn't. I'm in the US and so will probably return to using TuneIn. For those in the UK it's probably worth having on your phone and only loses a star because of my personal need for the international commentaries.

Being a visually impaired user, I was disappointed to find that this app, while partially accessible, is not completely so with the talkback screen reader on board my Android device. I would love to see buttons labeled correctly, and the tabs at the bottom of the screen do exactly what they're supposed to do. For example, when using the talkback screen reader with this app, I find that the command to open each tab, does not change what the onboard screen reader sees. Please fix?

Don't know how to feel about this update 🤔 On the one hand, the app hasn't disconnected on me once since updating, a marked inprovement, so kudos for that. Also the design is a lot cleaner, so again, well done there. On the other, the lack of articles through the app is a bummer as I used to enjoy that ease of use. But worst of all? The bloody app stays open when you close it unless you press stop before closing. Very frustrating when trying to take a call.

New app is a lot quicker to start but it's a pain to stop, even when the app is closed and killed it starts again on its own when pressing play on a headphone controller - even playing over the podcast I was listening to!! Please fix this bug.......this new version is potentially much better.

App doesn't work. All i get is a message which reads; welcome to talkSPORT & the new app etc,etc, stay tuned as more features to follow. 'More features one feature would help'. Sorry but nothing happens.

there is no way of exiting your app since the update, so it stays on the screen continuously, which means it turns on randomly if play button is touched, you people are quite frankly useless, major corporation and can't even build a decent app

absolutely useless for radio since the update. keeps switching off after 1 or 2 minutes. I will be switching to 5 live until they sort this out. DEFINITELY DO NOT UPDATE TO THE NEW APP.

Awful app, constantly cuts out and decides to randomly rewind itself 30 seconds then will jump forward after 5 minutes, impossible to listen back to a show as it cuts out every 10 minutes and when you go back on the app it restarts itself meaning you have to find where you was in the show, theres no way of avoiding this as the shows are in 30 min segments so you have to open the app to switch to the next segment. All these problems have occurred on multiple phones and devices. Awful app.

love the station and it's content. cannot stand the startup of this app as it never starts first time. I have to constantly start shutdown start shut down to get this app to start running. also remained of adverts is completely ridiculous. whether I start the app on Wi-Fi or phone data and never ever starts first time usually takes about 8 attempts. needs sorting out ASAP

You can't pause the player easily. You have to go back into the app, the select the station to stop and play. Please get this functionality back on the android drop down.

This app needs to be updated. Connection to live content often drops or into a loop repeating itself. i find it difficult to enjoy the progams. I do hope some reads this and makes necessary adjustments.

just keeps adding adverts in whilst you're listening. this is in addition to the usual broadcast adverts. can quite easily go 10minutes of just listening to adverts. disappointing as the app does work.

The feed continually cuts out in order to play a series of adverts. Mid conversation all of a sudden I'll hear about gocompare or some such. Talksport has enough ads already. Why can't I just listen to the feed as it is on a radio? Absolutely ridiculous.

great station good content but the app itself is terrible it lags a lot and at times repeats itself as well. It's a shame because talk sport is great just wish the app could be half as good

its almost unusable for the listen again function unless you persevere with re loading and find the place it dropped out. There is basically next to no stability within the listen again function. very little thought was put into the user journey.

it used to be a great app to listen to but now overplays the commercials and returns to presenters when they are midway through their conversation. As of now no longer a listener.

Not far off being unlistenable. Constant promotions for podcasts - the same ones over and over, and they are played at the expense of programming so you miss interviews, news and sports news.

I have had major problems with the App and also hearing the Talk Sport stream on my phone via any other method, over the past few days. Talk Sport have made a big change here. Because, I also can not get the stream on my Amazon Alexa via TuneIn it says unavailable. The App was updated on the 14th Jan and does not start it comes up with a Network unavailable message. What network! Every other stream is fine! So, I can't listen via TuneIn or via the TalkSport App or via the RadioFM App (says Currently Not Available!) or via the MyTuner App. I give up!!!

I listen to talk sport everydayp whether I'm in the van and it's DAB digital to when I get home through the mobile app. I absolutely love it, so it annoys me because the app has glitches where it won't work at all so you have to uninstall then reinstall you also just goes out for a few seconds now and again.

Needs to fix the failures to launch, frequent crashes, and dropping out audio. It's a shame as I'd use this app for football commentary if it wasn't for that.

Using this app for the first time to follow cricket and can report a very disappointing experience. Audio frequently cuts out even with a strong Wi-Fi signal. It also seems to happen when my phone locks, which makes it useless for listening on the move. Audio is clear when it plays, but a bit quiet. Poor.

Use it for the cricket coverage, which is pretty good. But the constant crashing every couple of minutes is driving me bonkers! I now have reinstalled to get a white screen with nowt on! Could it be because I am in Germany?

When you can open it to listen it's great, however it crashes so many times. I have probably uninstalled it then reinstalled it over a dozen or more times. Sort it out!

Fails to open frequently. Just blank white screen or title bar but no functionality before an error message and inevitable forced stop. Repeat until you realise you're not that bothered about listening to Talksport. Reported months ago. No change.

Absolute disgrace of an app. Works fine and then a blank screen a few days later. Has been happening for several months . Shame on the developers. Sees they couldn't care less

TalkSPORT!?.. more like Talkbetting! . Constent adverts about betting every 15 minutes or so. Some good presenters and really used to enjoy it but it's obviously just all about the money and betting now, not good or healthy. I've switched to BCC 5 live, no adverts. Oh and the app was very temperamental, unistalled.
