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.

Flawed fundraising ads

Whenever WDET is performing a fundraiser, programming on the app is interrupted nearly every minute with a fundraising plug. Often, the fundraising plug will repeat multiple times or multiple plugs will play in succession. It is very annoying and is a disincentive to contribute or use the app.

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!
