    A couple of nota benes: a widget would be a godsend and I reckon the station labeled as Fox 5 is actually plain old regular Fox.

  • Skips randomly; needs volume equalization; can affect other radio apps’ behavior

    I upgraded to final and enjoyed it a great deal the first few months. However it has started skipping between channels randomly and without obvious reason. There is also a huge volume discrepancy between the BBC and the CNBC. At maximum volume the BBC is hard to hear and then when CNBC comes in the volume is deafening. Other radio applications seem to be affected by Funnel because listening to the same programs there resulted in a skip two stations that I listen to only on Funnel and not on those stations. Most curious behavior.

    I love this simple app. I can get the hourly news from NPR and BBC with one click. Make this a Car Play app!

  • Want to use it daily - but 2 missing features made me delete it

    Almost all my audio entertainment and information is via podcasts and/or streams. I actually keep 3 podcast apps on my iPhone because each has features I want/need. I would enjoy having an app like Funnel. With the pro version features it would literally be a one-tap source for news. But 2 major features that most podcast apps have are missing: 1) Registering it with the system as a spoken-word audio app. Because it is not recognized as such, if I am using a Navigation app the voice directions speak on top of the news playback. Subsequently I can’t hear several seconds of the news I’m listening to which usually leads to missing information relevant to the story. 2) Ability for short skips backward and forward in playback. You know this feature: you missed something and you want to go back a few seconds to hear it again. Or maybe you want to skip some audio to get to something else. Even more disappointing is that it doesn’t have these commands available via Bluetooth like most all other major non-Apple podcast apps do. I’ll be monitoring Funnel’s updates in case they add these must have features. When they do, I’ll pay for the pro version. In the meantime I’m glad I got the basic version when it was free.
  • Watch out! Deceitful App

    You pay for the app to support it. Then they try to charge you an additional $9 to automatically play the news when the app opens. There is no price warning of $9 charge to unlock “pro” feature until after u pay
  • Why isn't there a widget?

    I feel Iike you never really need to be in the app, it's like built as a widget but it isn't a widget.
