What's New in Version 3.0.0
* Complete redesign
* New features
The original version had corrupt schedules, and radio streaming was spotty. The new version has no schedules for tv and radio, and the streaming is just as bad. Frankly, the most frequent use for me is checking the TV and radio program schedules..."what's on tonight?" The app was the first stop, and the website scheduling is very onerous to navigate. But in the old app, multiple programs would show up for the same time slot, so it was very confusing. Now there is no schedule, which is equally frustrating. C'mon, KQED, as the most listened to / watched NPR / PBS station in the US, it should be easy to put schedules on an app.
Works well, but annoying
I really only have one complaint with this app. When you first open it there's a prompt to give it GPS access. Why would it even need that information? No clue. Denying this access results in the app showing you an alert that you need to go into settings to enable location services EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE APP. I've been using the app for months now and have had to dismiss this alert a hundred times now. Very annoying.
Problems with user interface!
It’s decent for listening to basic audio (NOT high-def audio) however the UI frequently shows a three-line menu icon just under the top-left three-line menu.
Also, the app is a blinding sea of white. Could they maybe hire a UI person to give it some color?
The iAds look awful...
