What's New in Version 1.1.1
- Your Short List is now labeled properly
Beautiful, functional, useful
Beautifully designed for the iPad, this app is a perfect complement to the radio broadcast. I can store programs to listen to later, catch up on intriguing local stories at a glance, carry the show I'm listening to anywhere and in general keep on top of my favorite hosts, content, and the outstanding news coverage for which KPCC is deservedly known. I regard this app as core for my iPad!
Please bring back the rewind feature. So often, I'm in the middle of waking up to KPCC and, because I'm still half asleep, sometimes need to repeat a section of live radio. In the past, I could always jump out of bed, grab the iPad and rewind 30 seconds to listen again to what I missed. This isn't possible anymore.
Please bring back the rewind/forward feature for the iPad app. Thank you KPCC.
Easy, simple to use, and as a constant kpcc listener, it makes it so easy to listen live, check out the stories, go further into anything you find or hear about on the website. And it doesn't ask for all your contacts and private info. Does just what it says, just what you want.
