News during the day OR classical music at anytime. Jazz or Brazilian music on Sunday evenings, it just doesn’t get better than this. It’s become my go to Sunday evening channel to listen to because it’s so fun and interesting! Local Hawaiian flavor, the disc jockey just played a bunch of little known recordings of the Hawaiian jazz saxophonist Gabe Baltazar Jr. Today is his 91 birthday. What a wonderful gesture to celebrate this momentous occasion. What other station does this? No one. If you value community radio do yourself a favor and download this app. These guys do it right.
Discrepancy between streaming and live programming
Love the app, but doesn’t always work well..Cuts out sometimes and music interrupted mid stream by station promotions. there seems to be a delay between live programming on the radio and streaming on my phone via the app, which results in missing the continuous thread of the music. Really frustrating when you’re listening in the car and then want to continue w same program on your phone while shopping, but it sounds like they have different programming on app than on the radio. However, it’s great if you simply want good music with you always...
I listen to Morning Edition every morning. I listen on my Bluetooth headphones while I’m watching my kid and doing things around the house. I really like the convenience of having it on demand and being able to pause it. What I don’t like? At least once a day, the app boots me off, right in the middle of a segment. I need to stop what I’m doing, get my phone, re-open the app and station and find where I was in the program. It wouldn’t be so much of an issue if the app could remember/save what I was listening to last, but this is irritating and makes getting my new a lot LESS convenient. It cuts out when I’m listening live too and then I just miss out on random parts of the show 👎 please fix!
I mainly listen to HPR while driving so it’s nice to be able to go back and listen to an episode or musical piece that I like. Having it archived here is awesome because I can share it with friends too! Also love the listen live feature because I am not always by my radio but always have my phone with me. Thank you HPR!
I survey several news sites and share pertinent stories with student and faculty social studies groups. I often share local HPR stories in these discussion groups. While this app is very functional, I noticed when I share a story on twitter, there's no URL included. The viewer cannot access the story they're being told about. I cannot get the story's URL unless I view through a browser, which defeats the purpose of having an app. Please fix this, as I appreciate HPR staff's local news work and want to continue adding their stories to our weekly briefings. Thank you!
Versatile, agile, intelligent news and music! What Fun
Love this app. Can't believe it took so long to fully understand the enormous benefits. I appreciate the news, commentary and opinions as well as first class interviews, music of all genres, and the something for everyone approach. The app lets you choose between stations, channels, schedules and programming at the tap of a finger. Just love it!
I like the concept of links to podcasts of HPR shows, as well as many other shows. However, at least once per week, when I hit the string button and wait, nothing happens. I end up having to either switch off my iPhone completely and switch it back on, or uninstall the HPR app and then reinstall. So, no five-star rating for HPR! BTW, I am a sustaining member, so I listen to HPR a lot.
Finally I look forward to news and current events!
Great improvement. I used to listen while driving but when I quit driving I never had a radio to listen with but now it is so GREAT to go to the streaming and find topics and news that really matter to me no matter the time of day. What a gift! Thank You FROM BPHC
Works quickly, love the stream player always at the bottom! If I were to be critical I’d say the interface looks somewhat crowded and I would suggest dropping the HPR1/HPR2 channel selector to the bottom, just above the player.
The app is a great supplement to my regular listening to HPR on the radio. I also enjoy the on-demand content from stories I might have missed. There’s additional content in the app from HPR that fills in the gaps other media often misses.
Long time listener and I Love so many of the Shows on NPR and Our Local HPR Station, must be one of the best funded and supported. I give as often as possible and have become a sustaining member recently. Thank you All for What You do. I Really Love the App and use it often.
This app makes listening to HPR even more enjoyable. I can choose my favorite blogs or listen to streaming. Choices. And everything connects to my new car radio so I now get the best reception. Mahalo!
Lately, HPR-2 has been ruined with constant short gaps in the music. Additionally the commercial interruptions that start with, “Support for streaming provided by…” now interrupt the programming frequently, sometimes two at a time. Together, these changes have ruined what once was my go-to source for local classical music. There’s no transmitter on Kauai, so it’s the app or nothing for most of us.
No complaints. Easily navigable. I like how you can pick and choose programs, rewind live streams, and search. His does not fully replace the NPR app as it doesn't have the Newscast button. Or maybe I just couldn't find it. Please add the newscast button!
There is a continuing problem with using the streaming function with the iPhone with earbuds. When streaming, it is impossible to return to the streaming program without the live program also running at the same time.
I love the convenience of this app! It even makes easier for me to catch up on what’s going on live. Even though I am out of the house most of the time. Accessibility of this app is great with voiceover.
Really enjoying breathe and scope of this new app. New to me anyway. Have listened for a long time. Wake up here in WA state too late for Local NPR Morning Edition sometimes and so here I am! Mahalo! Thanks...
I’m in HPR member. I really wish the airport but about 25% of the time it is not playable. I close the app start again, turn off my iPhone and turn it on again, but it still won’t play. I called tech support and didn’t get anywhere. WiFi isn’t the problem. Instead sometimes I just go to the podcast of the programs that I’d like to hear but I end up missing the news which is important to me. Thanks for the wonderful HPR programming. Wish I could hear it. Kaneohe
What happened? The wonderful classic music player (I do not care about the news) is now over filled with way too much. All that was wanted is a player to hook thru the internet, which the older versions were. The older app will not play PR2. Make just a player again. Don't care for the new icon, but that is minor. I will just listen to the ovr the air radio FM. Minz in Honolulu
I spend an hour taking screen shots and typing a THOROUGH (and fair) critique of this app. Sent to HPR. Tried to contact HPR “management” several times to find “someone” who cares enough (or wasn’t too overwhelmed by other things) to respond. Elicited one lame apology but NOTHING else—substantive or not. SAD. MAYBE, if NPR was not a non-profit and received NO public funding (close to 4 million dollars) and no grants (and other handouts) they’d act more like a BUSINESS that actually understands how to WORK for dollars.
