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.
I don’t donate to NPR because they are left leaning, not the “independent news” they claim. Occasionally, I listen to them to see how they’re twisting news but the app is terrible because it plays for a minute then buffers then plays then buffers. It’s an awful experience. I’m 15 miles from Seattle, this shouldn’t be happening.
