I use it for their Jazz Stream. Pretty nice when there's no such thing as a jazz station any more. I get rare glitches with the app, but I get that from most apps from time to time. They lose a star for their recent cancellations to "streamline financial operations" ... canceling all Saturday on-air programming completely. Mick Martin's Blues Party was the most unique and excellent show available. People "used" to tune in from all over to hear that one. A great available via archive.

One star of my rating is because I love the station(s) involved. Clunky, the app usually requires at least two starts to begin the current stream, followed by a brief ad. This means that it is futile to attempt to continue a program from the car radio by starting the app because the phone must first disengage from its Bluetooth car connection so that minutes of the program may be lost. The audio quality of all programming is VG to excellent regardless of the source.

My home station for 35 years. Keeps me updated on local and state news, even after I moved away. That said of the radio station, the app is problematic, in that it frequently interrupts the "broadcast" to update the station interface. I assume the problem is actually with the way the station designed it's user interface, and that this problem isn't inherent in the app itself. When the app "burps" so much the story loses continuity, I switch to another public radio station and its app
