Mostly a huge improvement

After some muddling around, I figured out how to get to the on demand programs I want. 2 things REALLY need improvement: 1. Programs should pick up where I left off-even if I pause, or completely leave the app, leave it on my phone and restart on my iPad. If SiriusXM cAn do this, so can WPR.
A long time fan of WPR!

Very disappointed

My husband and I have been supporters of WPR for a very long time because I am an avid fan of Chapter A Day. (My parents listened to the program during the school day back in the 1940s and 50s!) The update is so different and not accommodating. I try to listen each day during the broadcast time but sometimes can’t. Before the update, I could find the program later in the afternoon or evening and listen and keep up with the story. Now I must wait at least until the next day and sometimes Monday of the following week to listen. I don’t like the Main Page at all. I can’t get to the choices I want. The previous Home Page worked well. I also encounter many of the same buffering problems and get “kicked off” the program when I pause. It’s not that I’m an older adult not navigating the site well. The previous format made sense and was easy to use. I feel my choices are limited, now. At least when I go to Florida this winter I can TRY to keep up with the stories. Thank you for continuing Chapter A Day all these years. It’s just harder to enjoy, now.

Delightful music, interesting and captivating programs, and easy to digest news coverage. WPR is always excellent. The app only improves in my personal opinion. Some are saying when they call or look at something else they are kicked off their program. This does not happen on my phone. If I use sound in other apps I can return and pick up right where I left off. I’m listening to it as I write this review. The update color and design is neat, clean, and organized. An overall very satisfying experience. More than any other app I have. What would I do without WPR. Thank you.
