Love the show, too many commercials.
I’ve loved the show since I began listening to it when I was in college. My town stopped airing his show a year ago, so i was super excited to see there was an app. However, I recently noticed I’m getting around 5 mins of the same ads when listening to the show. It’s ridiculous.

All commercial no show
I’ve been listening to the RSMS show for a while now and for the past week I only hear the commercials and when the show comes on it’s silent. I have deleted and reinstalled the app several times and still now show just commercials I tried to download the local station’s app that carries the show but it’s even worse, I get the local commercials and dj shoutouts about their shows but no RSMS play back What happened that causes this issue?

This app is TRASH!!! Like hot garbage. I love the RSMS and was happy to see this app, but if I could give zero stars, I would. The Rickey Smiley Morning Show is shaping up to be the biggest morning show on air as more cities pick up their show, so you would think they would invest more into their app. Apparently they haven’t. It constantly freezes, cuts off in the middle of the show, freezes and crashes. It does this often. Please fix this app!

I love the Rickey Smiley morning show but this app is awful! It plays way too many ads and constantly crashes. I have to reload the app at least 6 times during the airing of the show. Please fix this issue.

Commercials only
These apps are trash. All you get are advertisements and you can’t even listen to the shows a lot of the time. They make sure you get the commercials running perfectly. But you can’t even listen to what you’re using the app for.

This app is awful! I’ve had to restart it seriously 3 times this morning alone because it just shuts off in the middle of the show repeatedly. You all really should look into a new developer it makes it very hard to enjoy the show which I have loved for years

Horrible App
Urban One needs to get their apps straight. All of them crash or repeat the same ads over and over again. I spend most of my ride to work trying to get the app to play. I can’t even enjoy the show. It’s a reason why it is rate one star. FIX THE APP PLEASE!

Always shuts off!!
I LOVE listening to, Rickey Smiley! We don’t get it via radio in Philly, therefore we stuck with this App. The downside is that it cuts off constantly and it freezes. We’re always rebooting to the point that we’ve uninstalled just to reinstall the app! It’s 2021, let’s get this app on point!!!

Find Another App!
This is ridiculous. I have to reset this app through out listening to it. It always shuts off especially when they are reporting great topics and news. I’ll just listen to the radio! There are other radio app that are far better!

App needs improvement
The app constantly stops playing throughout the show. It’s really aggravating. Several times I have to go back in and restart the app or go completely out of it and try it again. Please fix this!!!

It won’t work…
I have the iPhone 10 Plus and this app will not play the radio show. What’s the point of having and app Kathy Hughes if it’s not going to work properly. Please hire a better IT Team or get someone that knows what they’re doing.

Just why
The app keeps crashing, and it plays the same commercial back to back. Why have an app that’s always crashing, just why? Let’s do better app developers

Cuts in and out or off completely
The app cuts in and out mid-song or mid-sentence. Sometimes it freezes completely. Shameful because I really want to hear the show.

Please fix this’s worse than ever! I can’t even listen to Rickey Smiley in the mornings without listening from the website. Because, most of the time, the app doesn’t work. And that’s VERY annoying!!!

Like the show, dislike the app
The app is horrible. Urban One also created (or managed) the Tom Joyner morning show app and the same problems occurred there as well. I love the Ricky Smiley Morning show but I am very disappointed with the app. The problems that exist with this app are way too many to list! I wrote a review when TJMS was running and the problems continued to exist so this review is mainly for others and not for Urban One. It appears that either they don’t care or they are clearly UNABLE or INCAPABLE of doing anything to resolve these issues!!!!!!!

App plays on my lock screen when bluetooth is connected without me even opening it. When I go to look for it in the background to remove it, it's not even there. The weirdest most annoying thing.

I have had this app for over a year and it worked great. Recently I have issues with constant buffering and now the show only plays for 30 minutes before there is no audio heard. Restarting the device does not help. I have this app on multiple devices and it runs the same way. The controls show it's playing but you hear nothing. The benefit of having this app was being able to listen at any time. Please fix this.

Worst App ever
This app does not work at all. The RadioOne app in which the Rickey Smiley morning show was previously on wasn't the best app but at least you could hear the show. This new version continually buffers and never allows you to listen to the show. I have gigabyte internet speed at home so it is not my connection. Rickey Smiley needs to find some other software developers who know what they are doing to develop and test the functionality of their app because this ain't cutting it.

This has got to be the worst app ever made. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn’t. I can’t listen to the show from local radio because it’s not in my area. Please do something. Find another developer, administrator or something. This is embarrassing and I’m missing out on my favorite morning show. I could understand sometimes but not all the time not working

Had the app since May, always catch replays later in the day if I missed the show live. Just wished the spots they used throughout the commercial break get updated, I can deal with it though. Other than that, I love it!

I personally enjoy the talk show but this app is just to not put together very well everything is clustered together and none of the videos will load on my iPhone 5. Fix the video playback and make the app easier to navigate.

I'm so happy I have access to this. You have to be up at 6:00am to enjoy the current topic. I'm in Minnesota & it's amazing along w/ the website. Finally have a morning show to keep me going #ROTFLMA. (So Happy)!!

Enough pop ups!!!
Seriously thinking of deleting the app just because of the pop-ups. I can't read an article without being redirected to the App Store. So frustrating...I may just listen to Rickey on iheart Radio and visit his site to read the articles. You guys should really fix this. I shouldn't have to download a pop up blocker just to fully enjoy this app.

I just downloaded this app and less than 2 hours later, it stopped playing and doesn’t allow you to press the “Listen” button because it disappears when the app stops. I deleted the app and downloaded it again and it still doesn’t play. Need a new developer or get fixed immediately.

Love Rickey Hate This App!
I love the Rickey Smiley Morning Show (even though I still miss Ebony) but this app is the worst! Constantly loses connection and drops out, plays the same commercials over and over until u go insane - but the losing connection thing is the worst. I wish they would upgrade this app so I could get my morning fix at work!

Just Terrible! Smh 😔
I'm fine with some Ads on a app but this app makes you watch the same ad over and over and over every time you open the app. And if the app crashes or messes up (which it often does) it plays the ad again and you can't do nothing about it! It's just a terrible experience 😩
