What's New in Version 3.0.3
Minor bug fixes.
I downloaded this app a couple weeks ago when The Current was doing its Best Prince Songs countdown. It worked fine for that. BUT, I haven't actively used it since then and I noticed that my battery was draining pretty fast. I checked battery usage and found the MPR app was using between 25-30% of battery life. I tried turning off background app refreshing (not an option under the app's own settings, but possible under Settings/General/Background Refresh"). But after two days, it is still taking 25% battery life. Sorry, but no thanks for an app I might use occasionally when traveling)
I gave a 1 star review a couple weeks ago, but they have fixed the problem that caused that now. So I am back to loving this app and they deserve 5 stars now!
Alarm doesn't work
The regular streaming function works great. The sleep timer works fine. But the alarm function doesn't work at all. That's too bad, as this app would make a great clock radio alarm when I'm on the road.
