Works great for me
Love the content and have very few issues with the app. Listen to classical, stories on demand and live news. Need to restart it at times after it won’t play, but that’s infrequent.

App is almost unusable, stops too often
Unfortunately, the latest release of this app is, if anything, worse for rural users than previous versions.. The app’s Home Screen has so many dense graphics on it that it takes too long to load. Even worse, the app will not play the stream until all the graphics finish loading. The app should be designed to work in Vermont where cellular and WiFi signals vary greatly in strength and availability. It should take the user’s bandwidth into account when it loads screens and keep track of when it has played the introductory sponsor list so it does not play them every few minutes as it switches bandwidth sources. Too bad the app was not developed by one of the many Vermont based mobile developers who know about Vermont’s internet connection issues. Another big failure in this app is when it loses whatever signal it is using, it gives up and requires the user to hit the play button again. The right way to implement the app is to have it retry until it gets reconnected again. Test the app everywhere it is going to be used instead of in a development lab with high speed Internet.

Works very well now
The bugs have been worked out over the last year or two, the app runs flawlessly now. The FM radio broadcast of VPR is spotty in our location, and streaming on archaic DSL was unreliable. High speed EC fiber and a new cell tower are welcome arrivals in our area of rural Central Vermont! Streaming VPR has now released us from playing ripped or downloaded music from a hard drive. Wish there was more bluegrass and folk and other genres included in the program of the VPR Replay stream, and more vocal music on VPR Classical.

All good
I love to stay connected through VPR. My stereo antennae leaves a lot to be desired so I often switch from stereo to streaming device. I usually just listen live, but have been able to access programs that I missed. I do sometimes stick my phone in my pocket and do my field work with VPR streaming. The only way I lose the stream is when I use my phone as a phone.

Easy to use
Open the app and just hit the play button, no fuss it just works. Plus you can pause for a couple minutes and come back without having to listen to the initial add again which is really nice.

Use it every day
Works for me. I listen every day at least once. They’ve ironed out a couple of issues getting back to the live stream after listening to a story on demand. It used to keep playing on the phone after I turned off the BT speaker. Minor issue.

Bring a little Vermont with you
While in Vermont, we fell in love with the local NPR station, and listen to it all day. I was so pleased to find the app so I can bring this awesome station with me wherever I go! I’ve not had any issues with the app’s performance, works great for me.

Top of the mountain quality
Vermont Public (love the new name by the way) always comes through with great content and this app showcases it in a straight-forward and easy to navigate way. What else to expect from Vermont Public?

It collapses to often
Use the app at least five days per week. I have to restart the app every time after answering the phone. Or when going out of reach of WiFi and headset. Each time I have to restart the app. Can you people fix that please. WBUR app developers and others have figured it out…

Performance comparable to other NPR apps
I quickly located the app for the local NPR radio when I arrived in VT. This app is on par with the WUNC app I am most familiar with. I would recommend this app to folks, here, who want reasonably reliable performance and quality. George McGregor

Generally, a very good app. Once, or twice a year, it crashes. I have to delete it, and then reload the app to get it functioning again. I do like the replay option.

Love VPR
Listened to VPR for decades, I love having this app available do that I can listen wherever I am. Of course being Vermont there are places with no cell coverage! I like the option to get news or listen to the current shows.

Constantly cuts off
I love VPR but I listen to the web streaming because the app streaming is so frustrating. It plays for awhile and then cuts off if I look at my email or another app on my device. Sometimes it just cuts out even when I am not doing anything else. I am giving up on it.

App it replaced was better
New app only shows TV schedule for main channel. VPTV Plus, Create and Kids schedule no longer shown - main reason I have used this app in the past. Instead, app cluttered up with out of date hyperlinks. I like Stewart Ledbetter’s show, but do we really need a link to a 4 week old “Vermont This Week”?

So convenient!
I love having VPR right with me on the go. Podcasts, news, and live broadcasts. I walk a lot so works well for that. Also if I have a “driveway moment” I can get out of the car now!

Not as good as it was in previous versions
This latest version does not play through Apple Airplay as it used to and it has to restarted every day in order to play at all. It also quits playing at random intervals.

Great alternative
Tired of the politics and money-grabbing fundraising of my local NPR affiliate. Good to hear thoughtful local programming and lots of National/international news provided by NPR.

Where's VP Classical?

A joke
...occurs every time my phone tells me that the VPR app "unexpectedly quit," when it is entirely expected and reproducible. Don't you guys test before release? Fails every time upon awaking from a suspended state, particularly if the screen cap is out of date (ie, a new show is streaming).
