Ratings and Reviews
I'm a big fan of this app and so grateful I can stream KEXP on the go. I've noticed a decent "bug" in the app regarding favorites, since updating two updates ago. I favor a song I hear, but when returning to favorite tab to look up the song I notice it's not there. Yet when the song is played again, it shows I have favorited said song. Besides streaming KEXP on the go, being able to collect/catalog the songs I love and want to remember is a big reason I use this app. Could you peeps take a look into this? If you need any screenshots or my info with the problem I am having, email me at: jeybirdsmusic at gmail dot com. Cheers!

KEXP rules; app needs help
I've been a devote KEXP listener and contributor for the past 15 years. It is hands down the best radio station in the US (universe?). The website and app have potential, but are frequently buggy, especially the show archives. The app behaves inconsistently across my iPhone and iPad and even my wife's iPhone. Why does the app play from different (and wrong) time stamps when I try on multiple devices to play the same archived show (Seek & Destroy 🤘🏽)? The live stream generally works great though, except the artist info won't load on my wife's phone.
Thanks, KEXP, for being awesome IRL -- where it matters. Please help out your digital cyber app though. Give your robot army a fighting chance in the matrix.

We are working hard to fix these issues, please hang in there. A brand new Streaming Archive underlying technology is being developed now which should fix many of these issues. --KEXP
Playing catch up. Please keep going...
Woohoo! They’re up to 3 stars! The fact that I’m so excited about this getting up to 3-star land reflects just how horrible this app has been over the last few years.
With the amount of money that listeners have pledged to KEXP over the years and how much of our collective listening is done online, it is ridiculous how much they have neglected the app.
The app SHOULD be a portal to access all of their archived live shows and all their videos as well. But I can dream...
I’d settle for this working in landscape on the iPad so I don’t have to turn myself sideways to choose a show. Seriously, just make this not look ugly and I’d bump it to a four star review. That is where the bar is set...
And dare I wish for CarPlay compatibility?
As usual, I’d be willing to throw a nice pledge your way once you show some commitment to adding to the app. Sarcasm here aside, I’m heartened that the app actually works and seems to be getting much needed attention. Please, please, please keep it up!

Hi! Thanks for the honest comments, believe it or not, we take them to heart and consideration in each planning meeting. We are actually exploring CarPlay now and seeing if it's possible to add (there are restrictions). We will continue to work on getting those extra two stars from ya, hold tight!! -KEXP
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
