Customer Reviews

KCRW is awesome. This app is not.

Love KCRW and am a sustaining member, but I hate how you have to listen to an ad for KCRW before every stream. Especially since the streams often have to be restarted or seem to buffer more often than expected and then restart on their own. As a member would love an option to skip the adds and have a smoother option experience. Since I was using the app daily this was a constant frustration. Just downloaded Simple Radio to listen to the KCRW channels and it’s light years better in terms of buffering. Just lacks the playlist, but I can deal.

Crashes after update

On iPhone 6s, iOS 10.2, app launches, then crashes, yet remains launched in the background (the app's home screen is visible in the app switcher, but will only crash again when selected).

As it appears I'm the only one to note this issue, I'll wait for the next update. If fixed, I'll change my review. I'm holding off seeking help on their website because they set over 20 cookies including several notoriously intrusive tracking sites. What business does a publicly supported radio station have in helping these outside companies mine your data?

Playlist doesn’t refresh

The music is great and the app is really simple to use. My frustration with it is that the playlist doesn’t refresh correctly. It’s annoying to look and see which song is playing, only to see that the playlist is 30 minutes or more out of date. You have to kill the app and reopen it to show the current track.
