Love the app. Two big UI requests:
The "favorites" star on the Listen Now screen is right above the "Favorites" star on the menu. There's plenty of room for bigger buttons to start with. But don't put the identical symbol right on top of itself, please, please.
Also... unselected Favorites in nav is grey, unselected favorites in Listen Now is white. So when I see what song is playing, I automatically assume I've already liked it, because the star looks selected when compared with the nav star. Please make their states identical for consistency sake.
Obviously flat design hit big right after you released this (and the website itself is badly in need of a flat responsive overhaul), but if the next iteration could have bigger buttons and flat icons, that would make it easier to use.
+1 on exporting favorites. I get hundreds, then have to go through them by hand.
Thanks for all your hard work.
Miles Ahead of Last, but Fixes Needed
The favorites and archived shows are two very welcome features. However, it seems a little buggy on my iPad 2. If I start the live stream, then stop it (I know, I know - why would I really want to do that anyway?), it will not restart. The stop button doesn't work, and an iPad restart is the only way to restore functionality.
Otherwise, this is a really nice app from probably the best radio station I've ever had the pleasure of rocking to. Thanks KEXP . . . looking forward to the next update.
Love the station
App needs a little work, when I listen to MY MAN DJ RIZ (love you, I was a fan back when you were at PLU and I had to drive all the way to the parking lot to get good signal in my car!!) on an archived expansions show, I get lost in the app once I navigate away from the now playing page.
For example, if I star a track and read more info about it, all I have is the back and donate now buttons to navigate with, which don't take me to the show's playing now page that I need to keep up with what the current track is. Please fix.
