THIS IS NOT A REVOLUTION. THIS IS A SOLUTION.
Station great; app garbage
Let me reiterate that I'm reviewing only the app here. I love the station but this app is comically bad. Seriously guys, there is a reason every other audio app stops playing when you unplug the headphones. (Hint: it's embarrassing to have your phone blare out music in a room full of other people. Plus, it annoys the heck out of everyone around you) Worse than this blatant disregard for Apple's interface guidelines, the app frequently gets out of sync with the stream, some times garbling the audio entirely and sometimes treating the song / artist metadata as part of the audio stream. The latter is noticeable as periodic chirps while the onscreen data fails to get updated. Sorry, but the time spent integrating ads into the app should have been spent fixing a long list of amateur mistakes.
This station has grown so much over the years. Just when you thought it was over, they became available through an Internet radio app. They are the foundation of what "eclectic stations" should build themselves from. From local artists to Local Natives, this radio station is well organized in its multiple show themes. Interviews, studio sessions, the "flip-back lunch," "Reg's Coffee House;" it's unstoppable. You need this app or you will die unhappy!!!
I love BMR!
I really enjoy listening to this station. I stream it whenever I'm in the car and throughout the day.
This is a really good app and will replace my use of Tune-In that I've kept on the hotbar specifically for BMR.
Keep up the good work!
