Customer Reviews

Love it, just wish the alarm feature would work better.

I use this app every single day to listen to KQED through my headphones. The only issue I have with it is that I've never been able to get the alarm function to work properly because I would love to wake up to KQED but every time I set the alarm and it doesn't go off. If they can get that fixed it'll get a five star, until then four stars, love the app.

Fine when it works, a pain when it doesn't

Streaming will randomly stop and start even when my network connection is fine. When I'm switching between other apps and have used this one recently, it will randomly start playing again. No developer contact info here or in the app to report bugs (App Store link is a 404). I've uninstalled to avoid being publicly embarrassed. Fortunately Apple Music now supports playing this station in the Radio section.

How do you turn streaming off?

I downloaded it for radio streaming but have deleted it because it comes on randomly after I turn it off. I'm sure it is a nice app if you know how to use it.
