Great app!
I really enjoy this app! For someone who knows very little about the world of classical music, this app provides a wide range of composers and musical styles within the genre. The station hosts also do a wonderful job of conveying background information pertaining to the composer, history behind the piece, etc., that help to provide the tapestry into which each musical piece fits. The sleep timer is a great feature to have as well! The only "ding" (and this is very minor) is I would like to see a better display of what is currently playing.

Not user friendly for me
I love having the app since the radio signal is so hard to get. I hook my iPad to the stereo for good sound. But everyday I struggle to find d the ‘live stream’ part to turn it on. Easy on my iPhone, but the iPad; not so much. Maybe I need more morning coffee first.

Not yet practical for hearing the day’s news
I want a WOSU app to substitute or replace my radio, not my other apps. I want to be able to play all of WOSU News’ morning / afternoon stories, as heard on air, in a few clicks. I want to be notified when they are all available to hear. As the app is now, you can play some stories singly, but it’s not immediately clear if/when when these stories aired. I don’t want to play them one by one. I want to start playing the morning or afternoon news, then set my phone down and go about my life while listening. (Like a radio but on demand) Thank you!

Excellent App
I listen to 101.1 pretty much constantly when I’m in my car and I often want to hear the rest of a piece or finish an hour show, this app allows me to do that. I also think that the classical music and talk radio as background is better on this app than classical Apple Music radio stations, for example, because these are curated by people—and it’s live which is way better.

very nice app
The WOSU app is very nicely done. I mostly use it for streaming the radio as it's playing right now, either the news station or the classical station, but sometimes I go back and play older stories. The text stories are easy to browse through and read as well. Pop-up notifications are extremely rare and generally actually newsworthy.

My Escape from stress!
I grew up with WKSU in northern Ohio and came to appreciate the window to the culture of that area the station offered. With WOSU I am able to have both the news when I want to hear it, and classical music when I don’t wish to focus on the madness of our world. Also, I am kept abreast of the cultural happenings of the Columbus area. Thank you for all you do!

Solid App but…
I would like to see two things in future updates: 1. Better organization of titles to make it easier to access on-demand titles. 2. Functionality that remembers my last-watched episode and/or grays out previously viewed episodes.

Great way to listen to great music!
I’ve been a fan of WOSU Classical for nearly four decades, and now with the app I can listen anywhere! The app lets me see what is being played and offers other helpful information as well. I would urge everyone to install it!

OSU radio, news, & tv all in one place
The app works great. It allows me to listen to WOSU programming from anywhere. It’s especially useful during road trips. It also gives me access to some PBS content I can show my kid when we need a quick distraction.

Surprisingly better than the NPR app for their shows
Considering how many millions more users the NPR app supports the WOSU app is much more reliable across iOS updates. For example, it the WOSU app plays all of, say, the previous day’s archive of All Things Considered whereas the NPR app has failed to do so after each of the last couple of iOS upgrades. Of course, this app also serves up WOSU TV (PBS) programming. Bonus! :-) It’s a free app so go ahead, download it and see for yourself. Enjoy!

Good choice of apps
Seem to be able to find live streams easily and doesn’t crash. Not so easy to find news stories to read, though, but maybe that’s not what it’s really for.

Happy to have NPR on the go.
WOSU is a terrific station and being able to take it anywhere, with this dependable app, is great reassurance that I won't miss news or a great program.

Great to use this app when you're not in the house or in the car and without a radio. You can stream NPR here while out and about from your phone. It's great.

Luv how I can be arriving at my destination & thinking, “Oh my, this WOSU program is just getting interesting,” &, rather just sitting there in the car, I can turn on the app & keep going with my day! Art

Sure Beats Radio
I find WOSU's radio signal intermittent at best. Love getting the clear signal via the app. My problem is with my carrier T-Mobile which has lots of drop spots when I get outside Columbus and interstates.

Excellent for classical music
Highly recommended for classical music lovers. I will probably enjoy other aspects, too, but haven't done much exploring yet

I get so angry sometimes
When the app works I'm happy as NPR is my lifeline. But the app drops me a lot. By this means is I'll be listening and then silence. I check the app and it is loading over and over. This happens when I'm at home with wifi on. Out and about. There's no reason I can find. Sorry but I curse WOSU there you have it

WOSU is great - app is ok
While the programming and features of WOSU radio and television are always outstanding, this app is not an intuitive delivery vehicle. I’m happy they have an app at all, just wish it were a little more refined and in tune with how people use apps.

On-demand playback not great
On the first use of the app in my house with good wireless signal strength and about 25 megabit/second internet speed, on demand playback of a Wait,Wait episode kept stopping. And the app doesn’t even seem to keep track of what I was listening to or where I was at in the show.
