Great. Alarm Clock

I’ve been listening to WQXR since it was AM Classical music. Glad you’re still around.
Just discovered the alarm feature. Hope it works well.

Awesome App

This has been and continues to be an outstanding app. I love the ability to listen to classical and opera. Operavore is awesome. This app does not disappoint. One suggestion, be able to purchase the music you hear from iTunes would be great and/or to save what you are listening to in order to purchase later.

Decent app & station

This is one of the few exceptions to my general preferences for mp3 playlists over radio. The app is basic and mostly does what it’s intended to do. One bug I’ve noticed is that the currently-playing and recently-played tracks will stop updating after a while; restarting the app gets it working again, but it is an inconvenience.

Landscape mode and on-screen volume control would be nice additions, as would a way to save a track’s info to a list so I can reference it later. And maybe a way to let a donation silence the constant nags to donate when it’s that season again. :P
