About this app

HPR App:

The Hawaii Public Radio App allows you to listen to HPR live, pause and rewind the live audio, and view the program schedule all at once! You can explore On Demand content, search for stories, bookmark a story for later, and wake up to HPR with the alarm clock!

Live Streaming

• Listen to live streams from HPR even while traveling! Start the app and your favorite station starts playing – no clicks to start listening.
• Integrated program schedules for every station. You can display up to three of your favorites at a time or flick once to see the schedules for all of your favorite stations.
• One click stream switching – flip over to the program you noticed on another stream with a single click.
• Listen to HPR in the background while browsing the web or catching up on your emails!

On Demand
• Access public radio programs from multiple content providers (NPR, BBC and HPR) easily and quickly.

I love HPR! My only complaint and its actually pretty annoying is that it turns off when my screen closes! And my screen closes every 10 min! I cant keep it open longer. So if I'm washing dishes or doing something else I will miss part of the program until I can open the screen again.

Love being able to hear Hawai'i Public Radio whenever I like. But there is no way to stop it once started. There is no way to log out. Closing the window? The programming continues (on both Android and iPhone apps).... Only work arounds I've found: Turn off the phone or uninstall the app, reinstalling it when I want to hear HPR1 or HPR2 again.
