3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing to me November 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
The good part: it gives you seamless access to all of the Minnesota Public Radio channels--and that's some great stuff.

What I found a problem: there is no clearly labeled way to turn it off--it just minimizes and plays in the background. I gave up and uninstalled it.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect June 14, 2012
By Elise
Verified Purchase
I can't think of a negative thing to say. I can now listen to my favorite news and music on my Kindle Fire. Some of the stations were unavailable to me (the Current) because of my location. This is my new favorite app! Simple, seamless, and lists the artist, host, or show you are hearing. Thank you MPR!

In this app, you have the option of what genre of MN Public Radio stations you wish to listen to (such as MPR, Classical, and a variety of others). I usually am listening to programs on MPR, and since I used to live near Minneapolis (and still miss it there), I use this to sort of keep up with the news going on there. I also like programs that MPR runs, such as "The Takeaway with John Hockenberry". There are podcasts available for some kinds of programs/shows, so this app isn't necessary, but it is a simple, easy to use app that has proven reliable. It has never crashed or "horked" (my technical term for hanging, lagging, or otherwise being annoying)! :-)
Used on Kindle Fire HD (2012 model).

Worked well while I used it. Unfortunately it caused the phone to start over heating almost immediately. Hottest it's been too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Love Public radio
I love some of Public Radio. This station cut me off for not donating money to them. Really sad to think, that is what they are all about.
They are non-profit, to top it off?
