What's New in Version 2.3
Fixed crashing issue
The words 'fraud' and 'bait and switch' come to mind
When I buy something called Bluegrass Country, I really expect it to play bluegrass, not random other folk music (it seems to just be playing the WAMU stream.) But that alone, despite the title of my review, wouldn't warrant a 1-star review. What does warrant a 1-star review?
Well, despite the iPhone 4 and iOS 4 being almost a year old now, Jacobs Media hasn't bothered to update the app to support the retina display.
Would that warrant a 1-star review? Probably not. But I find it inexcusable that after almost a year, this thing doesn't support background audio playback, while other apps such as Pandora (free) and Public Radio (free) have supported it for a long time now.
Instead, the programmers at Jacobs media are just handing the URL to Safari. Is this due to laziness on their part, or stupidity? I wouldn't know.
But if anyone from WAMU happens to be reading this, I hope you'll rescind their license, sue them for the money they've taken from people like me, and find a reliable developer to produce your app.

Works great and saves me time finding who's on with the link built in. Also like the alarm clock feature..waking up to an alarm clock is wrong but waking up with Bluegrass just makes the day that much easier..Yes, I have went to sleep with The Free For All and woke up with Katy Daly...☺
I took a chance on this app despite the negative reviews. Works great! The sound is crystal clear and I haven't had any service problems. If you like bluegrass and Americana, this is a great app! Besides, you could do worse then support NPR!
