It’s a start...

I have several NPR member station apps on my phone and this is the only one that doesn’t tell me what I’m listening to (show/host info and/or song title and artist info, for example) in real time. If this feature is available, how to utilize it is not immediately apparent. Other than that, it looks good so far. I reserve the right to update this 3-star rating as the app evolves.

Great programming, needs improvement.

UPDATE to review below: On Demand completely unavailable on iPhone 4. ORIGINAL REVIEW:
The app is pretty unstable (frequent crashing) and it seems to hog system resources leading to other app crashes.

When iPhone is in use as a phone, app sometimes continues playing or stops altogether. When listening to On Demand, any stoppage requires going through the menu again and starting selection from the beginning. There is also no way to fast forward On Demand program, but you can rewind. (Is this in the design or a flaw?).

If you do nothing else but listen to the app - flawless, but we all know this is far from how smartphones are used.

It is a shame that these flaws exist when the programming is so good!

Great app!

There have been some bugs in the past but the developer and the station have been responsive and gotten them fixed. I love that I can take my WDET with me in more places and stream it live. Thank you WDET & fellow supporters!
