Never pause if you don’t want to go live


It doesn’t hold a pause if you go out of the app. So if you need to pause while you take a call or whatever it’ll start live instead of where you were.

Edit: Also, I understand its regular radio but Morning Edition repeats. I would love to have the option to hear the stories from the night before. I only really have the availability to listen until 11 and the noon and 6 PM hours always sound interesting. It would be great to explore previously aired portions. (Like maybe put the hours next to the program names in the side bar; also does the side bar have ALL the prior segments?)

Edit 2: OMG thank you for this new swipe left. Maybe it was there before. Maybe not. I just accidentally found it and it’s awesome and exactly what I want. Pause is the only issue I have now.

Works Again


I couldn't get past the tutorial for weeks. I had tried deleting and uninstalling countless times. Today I tried using the app again, no luck.

I then decided to try to delete and reinstall it again one last time, and it started working. I recommend everyone give it a shot, KPCC is wonderful and now I can rewind to the start of shows like the coverage of the eclipse that I missed! :)

Should be an Apple TV app


This app works ok. I use it every once in a while. As a subscriber, I appreciate the fund raiser free option.
The problem is that this should be on my Apple TV, but it isn't. Apple TV app store has been out for a long time, and this app pre-dated the 4th gen Apple TV, so why hasn't it been ported yet? I would listen to this every single day. It would be running almost continuously at my house.
Apple's radio stream through iTunes just don't work reliably anymore, and they require a paid membership to even be available. So KPCC, make this an Apple TV app already!
