What's New in Version 3.1
Optimized for iPhone 5 screen size
Bug fixes and stability improvements
I LOVE the Eclectic 24 station!!! I also appreciate that the radio station are curated by humans who understand flow. I have the ipad app and I haven't had any crashes or problems. The only 2 suggestions I have is to continue to add great alternative stations and I wish I could make a playlist from song that are currently playing. That would make this app perfect.
NPR Music listener
The NPR music app includes functions you can get on the website such as first listen, which is great in theory. However, the app consistently crashes. Right now, I repeatedly cannot even open the app, because it immediately crashes. Many times I cannot access the functions such as radio stations I would like to listen to. This irregular access has unfortunately only increased over the 2 years I have had the app. Deleting it and reinstalling it has not improved the errors.
Great app with very little bandwidth
I agree with most of the reviews. The app offers great music, hundreds of stations and great programs like All Songs Con., but perhaps because they're non profit and can't afford much bandwidth or some similar problem, the app loves to both pause and crash for no apparent reason. Still have to say it's more than worth exploring.
