I like to listen to rnz on my headset via my phone. For some reason this app (android) constantly drops the signal. I have tried it with the soil direct and using I heart ratio app which appears to be there rnz app in a wrapper. Three I heart works a little better but walking down road it can drop signal many times in 15 minutes. I have no trouble with other apps eg Google play Spotify etc just the rnz app. Anyone else experienced this?

Yip, The App is very buggy and drops streams often

 

probably related to this  "Updated: 05 November 2014"

I find it works fine on my phone (Android now, Apple previously) on wifi in the house.

 

Generally only listen to The Panel though!

I use Tunein to listen to RNZ on my android (admittedly by wifi in the kitchen) and it is fine. Try that and see if it is as good over 3G/4G

I agree it serves to work ok on wifi so it's probably the 4G streaming process. I will log a complaint with rnz but does anyone know if I use the websites to stream the audio is that likely to cheers you more data?

I have a nexus 5x (Android 7) and it will not work at all.  I switched to an app called 'Radio New Zealand' and that works perfectly plus has every other radio station in NZ you could imagine.

Mine is a Nexus 6 and neither the rnz or I heart will work. Someone above suggested trying the Funding app which I tried and shy far it's fine
