Great station, nightmarishly horrible app 2015-07-13 This app is still fundamentally bad. A complete usability disaster. Whoever designed this is either clueless about how to make usable interfaces and user experiences or just didn't care. Also the app drops the audio stream oftenー much more often than other streaming audio apps. Overall it's an app that comes across as an afterthought, half-hearted. If you want something closer to actually being usable, try the SomaFM or KEXP apps.

I love KCRW. This app, not so much. This app is built for a mobile platform, yet it seems absolutely unable to deal with the effects of actual mobility. If the internet connection is changed or interrupted in the slightest, say, as you move from WiFi to cellular data, as you move through a cellular "dead spot" or even if you move from one WiFi access point to another, audio streaming stops, and often doesn't recover. You have to exit all the way out of the app, or even use Settings to Force Stop, or even reboot your phone to recover. Did the developers even use this app themselves? Unfortunately, the way KCRW seems to "do" mobile apps does not leave me much hope for a possible solution. If this app was procured like the previous KCRW Android App, it didn't include any ongoing maintenance, so we can't expect any bug fixes until they scrap it and come out with something new, written by somebody different, but with a whole new set of bugs. I hope I'm wrong, and there will be fixes soon. I say that as a KCRW member for most of the past 20 years.

Couldn't get it to live stream anything at all It wanted to access my twitter feed which I don't tweet so I don't know if that was the problem or what. Very disappointing.
