Listen to Minnesota Public Radio anywhere you go with the MPR Radio player. This application lets you listen to all seven of MPR's streams: The Current, Local Current, Classical MPR, MPR News, Radio Heartland, Wonderground Radio, and the Choral Stream from Classical MPR.
The Current at 89.3 FM in the Twin Cities plays independent emerging artists alongside the legends who inspired them. Classical MPR provides lively classical music and good company to listeners throughout the day. MPR News provides in-depth coverage of regional, national and world issues.
The high-quality streams (128 k) for The Current and Classical MPR play best using a wifi or 3G connection. The MPR News stream (64k) will play with wifi, 3G, or the EDGE network. This application was developed by Minnesota Public Radio And CodeMorphic, Inc.
What's New in Version 2.2.2
• Bug fixes.
I use this app all the time to listen to MPR while I'm traveling or just when I'm in a room without a radio. It works well for me. I also use it sometimes if I'm listening to the Current but want to know the name of a song they're playing (since it's always displayed on the app).
We love this app in our home. Use it all the time. Since the last set of update we find that it drops constantly (whether it is phone, iPad - mine or spouses). Such a bummer to be listening to the news or music and have it gone. This app, when it was working, is what got us to become members. Great stations on the app. Hope it can be fixed so it doesn't drop so often.
As much as I want to love this app, I am very disappointed with it. The alarm function doesn't work at all, merely crashing it and requiring a reinstall. The stream buffers constantly for no reason whatsoever, and it's impossible to get it to be one for longer than five minutes. All in all, it needs work.
