I'm a big fan of this app and so grateful I can stream KEXP on the go. I've noticed a decent "bug" in the app regarding favorites, since updating two updates ago. I favor a song I hear, but when returning to favorite tab to look up the song I notice it's not there. Yet when the song is played again, it shows I have favorited said song. Besides streaming KEXP on the go, being able to collect/catalog the songs I love and want to remember is a big reason I use this app. Could you peeps take a look into this? If you need any screenshots or my info with the problem I am having, email me at: jeybirdsmusic at gmail dot com. Cheers!

Please start over

This is still a pretty not-so-great app. Picking shows is weird. Should just be able to pick the show and move on, like SoundCloud. Jumping to a specific time is just odd since the easier thing to use is a timeline with a playhead, like most music players. Even on WiFi the stream being interrupted by changing g the time seems to take forever. You need to wait for the app catch up and then play music before you decide to jump out of the app to use another app. If you jump out, the app freezes.

The old version from way back with fake pre-ios6 buttons was very very very bad. This version, as it was with the old version with “buttons”, functions on a simple stream. The app is deeply flawed and functions in as much as it would be a nice supplement to having a radio. It still seems like it’s a better idea to just make this app only play a live stream, and then make sure it can still play the stream if you open a different app at the same time.

This is still a very good radio station but you would be better off trying not to do anything other than program great music and then play it live.

Sorry you are so unhappy with the app, certainly don't want to hear that! We strive to deliver the best product we can and are happy in the direction we are going but understand your complaints. We hope we can deliver a better experience as we develop new features. --KEXP

Good, but needs UI improvements on iPad screens

The app is scaled for portrait viewing on a retina screen. If you’re using an iPad in landscape mode, it doesn’t rotate or rescale. This leaves you stuck looking at a screen with your head turned to 90 degrees to the side. Everything else is as I’d like it: the ability to see the playlist, same audio quality as listening to the stream directly, etc. But please fix the screen rotation issue ASAP!

Thanks for the feedback. We had to lock the iPad for technical reasons but are looking how to resolve them going forward. Stay tuned -KEXP
