Good way to hear news/music


This has worked well for me to hear the news away from the radio, and the music stations offered as streams. Interface is simple, although a bit cluttered. Would like a list mode for stories where the pictures could be made smaller or have no pictures so you could see more headlines without as much scrolling. Also the player controls at the bottom of the app are large. It would be nice to be able to shrink these down as well.

Well organized app


So many applications require you to either scroll or click-thru pages to get relevant material. Everything I want is on the opening page of the app—no click-thru, no scrolling. Great if you are working from a smaller screen size like a phone.

Tenuous fugit ergo carpe diem

Having the ability to read, and listen to the news, with the option to listen to music away from the radio is great. I read an interesting article on Thelonious Monk and purchased an album based on the article. Good job Cap Radio.
