Ratings and Reviews
Functional, but needs update
I really like having this app as a quick way to pull up the KPLU feed. As a minimum requirement, this works great.
Beyond that, the app doesn't follow Apple's HIG (interface guide). There is a custom volume slider, menu items transition in from the top (except when it inconsistently slides in from the side), and assets are not retina ready. What level of donation is needed to get an update?
Fabulous. Intuitive user interface, unlike another NPR app I downloaded recently. Provides a list of 'recently played'. Low latency between this feed and the live radio feed.
This station is one of the radio stations I have ever heard.
They have real dj's & literally the best jazz playlist 24/7, or pretty close. A stupendous example to be judged against all. The best composite & huge library of jazz & knowledge & understanding of it all.
Plus they have the news which I appreciate also.
A definite 6 star station.
