Like so many martyrs
Great ideas, not-so-great execution. The "On Demand" section needs the most help: many playlists are in random order and are neither searchable nor sortable; playing audio can't be scrubbed; the "Previously played" list doesn't retain a history; some advertised tracks are absent (the piece I downloaded the app to listen to isn't there); where's Meet the Composer? Etc. There are plenty of good things happening here, especially being able to see lots of detail about what's playing in the stream. (For which Actaeon paid dearly; for us it's happily free.) But, like an Italian model with a broken nose, when your best feature is out of whack...that tends to get all the attention. Alas. I'm very grateful for the app, don't get me wrong—I'd just like to see it live up to its potential.
Finding this App has been wonderful!! I grew up listening to WQXR daily; there's no other station like it in the world. Seven years ago I moved 1300 miles away and have missed WQXR every single day. Now I've got it at my fingertips again. Bells and whistles - and the occasional glitch - mean nothing. What matters is the music and it's all here. Highly recommend!
Awesome. Still needs one improvement.
I use the app daily to listen while I get ready for work. I hoped on this latest update they would've fixed this issue: The Previously Played playlist does not update. Currently it only shows what played before you opened the app and does not refresh as more songs are played. Fix this and you have 5 star app!
