Hearts of Space is the original, premier showcase for ambient, contemplative, and space-creating music. Listeners describe the show as 'addictive' and 'essential' — a consistently high-quality experience with refined, emotionally satisfying music that goes far beyond simple relaxation.

Version 3.0 of the Hearts of Space app offers iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch users free anytime access to our new weekly show, one free program and one free album, plus sample programming. Users can subscribe for higher levels of mobile service, which they can also access from nearly all laptops and desktops. Voiceovers can be turned off with a single tap to create a seamless musical experience.

STANDARD SERVICE subscribers have unlimited access to the new weekly shows, plus 10 full-time Channels of continuous Hearts of Space programs: 9 genre-based channels and one eclectic "ALL ARCHIVE” channel; skip shows or tracks you don’t want to hear.

FULL SERVICE subscribers get the above plus access to personal playlists created via laptop or desktop. This allows mobile access to the entire archive of over 1,100 programs, as long as you put what you want to hear in a personal playlist first. iPad users can also access the HOS website directly via a Flash-enabled browser such as Puffin (free).

About HoS: Since 1983 the pioneering San Francisco radio show has offered "slow music for fast times" in over 1,100 much-loved hour-long programs. Hearts of Space has evolved its own format — a calm, space-creating mix of ambient, electronic, world, new age, classical, and experimental music from many eras and cultures. The show has been heard by millions — weekly on over 300 U.S. public radio stations since 1983, and daily on XM Satellite radio from 2001 to 2010.

Mobile gateway to great music

The App is working well again - the major bugs have been fixed. Battery consumption is back to a minimal amount allowing me to use this as one of my main music companions again. The UI is a bit different, but I like it. The sleep timer now remembers its previous setting. And, the service from the HOS folks remains stellar!

Not being able to actually access the full archive through the app is inconvenient and disappointing considering the fact I pay for full access. As I don’t have a functioning laptop I’m at the mercy of random programs they choose to upload. I love the music but hate how limited the amount of playlists available to listen to are. This would be a 5 Star app if I could actually access all of the achieves and favorite the stuff I like. Maybe in the future they’ll fix this.

Service great! App needs update.

After launching the app and hitting play, audio cuts out for nearly a second when going into and/or backing out of the app. App may need a compatibility update? and perhaps a visual/UI refresh may be cool. Thus, I deduct one star. Otherwise, HOS app works as expected, giving easy access to your HOS account content, and it's free so... :)
