Used to be better
The most obvious problem is its failure to recognize landscape mode on both iPhone and iPad. The old sleep timer was great. I preferred having a combined app with both news and classical channels instead of needing to download two different apps.
But it plays HPM content without crashing or pausing to buffer data, and that’s what is most important.
The Station is Awful But the App is Very Good
I admit I am not a fan of KUHF. There are too many commercials for a public station, there is too much amateurish and boring local "news" at the expense of real NPR programming, and there is too little top notch original programming for such a large station (Engines of Our Ingenuity being a major exception). That said, their App is very good, giving access to their NPR news stream, more of which I wish was available on their radio station. It allows you to background stream so that you can listen and perform other iPhone tasks at the same time. I now find that I use the iPhone App more than I listen to the station itself.
Request for future releases: I would like to be able to go to sleep to the classical channel and wake to the news channel. Therefore I would like to see these features added: (1) Sleep timer (2) separate channel and volume settings for Sleep timer and Alarm (3) Ability to dim the screen when Sleep Timer or Alarm is set.
Looking forward to using this app on my next biz trip too!
