Love this app
Use it in my car, home, and workouts.
No complaints
Nothing bad to say at all.

Great app.


I use it most evenings to listen to good jazz. We live about 50 miles from Fargo so good reception on the radio is often a problem. This app and my iHome radio allows me pick up the station clearly.

A great way to enjoy Prairie Public Radio!


Very reliable, responsive, and well designed. Highly recommended!
