4.0 out of 5 stars App Works After Re-installation Two Weeks Ago February 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
App is great when it was working. It stopped working one day after I installed it in my Kindle Fire. 2 stars.

Just reinstalled 2/6/13. It is working now.

2/19/13 Update

I use this app everyday since I re-installed it almost two weeks ago. I have not experienced any problem. I upgrade it to 4 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works ok but demands too many permissions August 15, 2014
Verified Purchase
Why does WPR need access to my sms messages and be able to directly call phone numbers, read phone status and identity, know my location, know about my wifi network, etc? Installed, tried it a few minutes, then uninstalled after finding out about permissions. I really like WPR and would like to listen on my Galaxy S5 but will not be doing so until they are a little less intrusive.

There is an app for the Ideas network that is not intrusive. Look up 970 WPR Ideas on google play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Public Radio Everywhere I Go May 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
As a traveler, and a person who has to live outside of WI, having the ability to listen to WPR via phone and on my blue tooth speaker is fantastic. If anyone is a fan of Public Radio, they should know this is one of the best stations in the country. It has 2 choices-the Ideas Network, and 24 Hour Classical. With the App I can search archives of most of the best PR programs. I am a particularly a fan of Chapter A Day. If you haven't heard Jim Fleming read, you've missed the wonderful feature of combining great narration and good books.
the content of this App is the best; but I do have a complaint about the navigation. that's the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. It's easy to choose "Classical or Ideas" options; but getting to the specific archived show is not as straightforward as I'd prefer. The content and choice overrides that.

So easy to use either for streaming or to listen on demand to previous shows. I also like that you can set the timer if listening at bedtime.
