Excellent For Listening

This app is great, if you like Jazz or Classical. You can listen to either streams or articles they post, with the phone locked to save battery power.

The only issue I have (and it may be an issue with streams in general) is that sometimes the stream quits on you, necessitating unlocking your phone, then pausing and playing the stream again; or even closing and restarting the app. For the price though, it's not a deal-breaker.

Thanks for making this app, folks!


Writi 90.1 Classical & Jazz Music

Doing a pretty good job! It would be nice though if you could have a buttons for ones to press when they may prefer only to listen to either Classical or Jazz instrumental
music only than having to listen to people chat about this or that when they may only need to relax to music only while they are say writing or illustrating children's books and need to concentrate on what they are doing, see? Then I could give you five stars.


So Grateful

This app allows me to keep WRTI, classical music and a bit of Philly with me throughout my busy schedule. So nice to hear familiar voices and great music. I sometimes wish the hosts would take a short breath before starting the music. At times it seems rushed, but the music makes up for it.
