Great app!


I've always enjoyed listening to NPR in the mornings and while working in the shop. It's so great to be able to keep up on current national and local events while getting ready or working or traveling and this app allows me to do so with ease. The UI is relatively intuitive and tidy, stories are available on demand, and you can search for specific stories in any segment. The only thing I would like to see change is the amount of delay between the app and the radio broadcast. The app is only about 15-30 seconds behind the app, but when transitioning between the app and say the car, it becomes difficult to get an entire story without interruption. That minor issue aside, I greatly enjoy the app. (Perhaps you will too!)

One click, and here comes the news!

As a local Charlottean, I trust WFAE first for my news. Now, whether it’s waiting at Jiffy Lube for an oil change or sitting in the airport waiting for a flight - WFAE is on and goes with me. Tremendously enjoy this app.

Great way to listen & keep up

I really like this app. It lets me keep up with what’s going on in Charlotte while I’m away, and it also lets me listen to NPR while I’m away from my radio. It’s also nice that I can access shows & segments I’ve missed.
