Much Improved The application is much better than prior versions which crashed regularly. Access to all hd channels is nice. It should be easier to quit from within the app and the navigation bar. Downsides are short. The main issue I've noticed is it doesn't play nice with other audio apps. It continues playing over Google Music as an example. It should stop playback in such cases.
Content wonderful but... Huge public radio support or and greatly appreciate this venue to have access anywhere I go. My only issue is when my phone goes to sleep the app turns off.
NPR - what & when i want it I love the on demand feature so I can catch segments at night that I miss during the day - or listen again. Also love the "10 second rewind" option. Would rate 5 stars but search function has never worked - serves up relevant results but unable to click to play. Crashes once in awhile but not a big deal for me - I'm grateful for a computer that fits in my hand and streams data wirelessly!
World = way better! I cannot believe that this app is free! This app is probably one of the main reasons that I am a sustaining member to the station. It's an amazing resource, don't cheat yourself, download it now!
Great resource but buggy Love having the app, but it goes silent for a few seconds a few times every hour, then "skips" as it catches up. Previously reported - has something to do with their streaming provider.
This app crashes more often since the upgrade. I still can't close it without forcing it to quit. I love having this station through an app but it is frustrating. I listen several times each day.
Improvements based on listener feedback
It is the radio of the program guide app. The program table radiko and NHK will provide, more visible, you can see more comfortable.
