1.0 out of 5 stars Kept dropping feed. . . January 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
I had high hopes for this app, as the PRI app works well. However, my Fire was never able to hold the stations, and I haven't been able to keep a signal long enough to see if it runs in the background.

2.0 out of 5 stars will only hold stream for 15 minutes at a time... January 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to find this app, as I am able to listen in the Midwest to my public radio stations in the east coast, where I have recently moved from. However, the stream drops from my my kindle by around 15 minutes every time I have launched it. That is disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ineffective on Kindle Fire July 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
Will not tune over 95% of stations listed. A complete waste of your time and money. Low cost, but not even worth the $0.99 price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Group to Choose From December 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are a public radio listener & fan, I know you will enjoy this app. I found several stations to choose from for every state in the unionthat I have an interest in. Each station I have listened to thus far has had terrific reception & clear sound. For less than a dollar, I believe I have already enjoyed more than my money's worth.

1.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't work for me. November 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
I purchased this app for my new Kindle Fire HD but none of the stations will stream to the device. Actually, I think the device tried to tell me that but it is new and I didn't catch on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stations keeps dropping August 23, 2013
By EG

I would give it a much higher rating if it wasn't for the fact that after a few minutes my stations stop and I have to reload them to start them again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Refuses to connect with most stations
A total waste of $0.99. I couldn't get it to connect with any public radio stations. I then downloaded TuneIn Radio (free) which works well will every station, public or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate
Provides a needed radio function. I won't use it as much as I might, but that's due to the decline in Public Radio over the last decade.
