Does its job!
The current version does allow for background listening, and even on non-iOS 5 devices through the use of Safari.
The graphics and user interface could use some work, but it certainly doesn't hurt the main functionality.
Give it a professional UI, and you'll get five stars from me.
Please fix app
It used to be better when News and Classical music was in the same app. I’ve noticed a glitch when streaming to a device where it doesn’t restart the streaming after an interruption. I have a feeling that the app may be getting confused in its need to play an advertisement every time it’s started. Unfortunately, I have to listen this way since they decided to stop broadcasting on the 8.x channels. :(
Used to be better
The most obvious problem is its failure to recognize landscape mode on both iPhone and iPad. The old sleep timer was great. I preferred having a combined app with both news and classical channels instead of needing to download two different apps.
But it plays HPM content without crashing or pausing to buffer data, and that’s what is most important.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
