  • Good way to hear news/music Jan 14, 2018

    By wonderboymatty
    This has worked well for me to hear the news away from the radio, and the music stations offered as streams. Interface is simple, although a bit cluttered. Would like a list mode for stories where the pictures could be made smaller or have no pictures so you could see more headlines without as much scrolling. Also the player controls at the bottom of the app are large. It would be nice to be able to shrink these down as well.
  • Great NPR station! Mar 5, 2021

    By Happy, grateful user
    CapRadio is my companion, and I like just about everything about it. There are some things that disappear over time, replaced with other things, for instance the second hour of science Friday is now gone, but I know if I am sufficiently motivated I can look that up online. I like the visual links to additional stories that you can click on, but I often wish that the visual would be there when the story opens, particularly if it could be a little larger. All in all though, I’m very grateful to have such a great station to listen to. Good job, guys!
  • Great content, very reliable, CarPlay is super Dec 16, 2020

    By Walter N
    This is a great radio station and the app brings it to you easily. Streaming is fast and never gaps unless I’m out of cell range. The only thing I don’t get is how quickly it is evicted from memory. If I stop the car and pause the music, when I open it again it has to start up from scratch. Even if it’s only a minute or two and I’ve done literally nothing with my phone since the. Otherwise wonderful, especially Jennifer Reason and the wide variety of classical music.
  • Overall excellent but sometimes glitchy Apr 18, 2020

    By 19nick66
    We stream CPR everyday, it’s been our companion for years. The app is overall easy to use, providing current news, local, national and international. Great library of podcasts. The only disappointment is the occasional halt in the livestream - sometimes it comes back automatically and sometimes we need to restart the app. Overall a great app
  • Pause live radio! Nov 20, 2018

    By MarkNav
    The best feature is being able to pause. So many times I’ve missed a key point because I had to step away. No longer. Simply pause and restart after a bathroom break or grabbing something out of earshot. I love selecting individual stories and sharing them with friends or family. The app makes it easy.
  • Not very good Feb 27, 2021

    By Stevation
    If you listen to a particular show, you can’t come back to live radio after. You click on the live menu and just get a page full of snippets you can hear on demand (why aren’t they on the “on demand” menu instead of the “live” menu?). You have to force the iPhone to shut the app all the way down and then when you come back in, the livestream is queued up at the bottom. Not intuitive at all. The NPR app is an easier way to listen to live CapRadio.
  • Best! Mar 30, 2018

    By Knit/crochet
    This is one of the best radio stations I have ever used. The variety of programs is great. I never get tired of finding out new and interesting things. This station is what I listen to when I drive and it keeps me going when I am off on a walk. Walking would be boring without it. I have it on my iPad and my iPhone, so can use anywhere!
  • Love live. Hard to find post-live. Mar 23, 2020

    By Tigerfishwings
    I love being able to listen to the live broadcasts wherever I am. However when I try to find past broadcasts, it can be difficult. The organization is not that user friendly - it takes something other than your “common sense”. Otherwise, great having the news and my favorite shows at my fingertips.
  • Good app but would like to know music info Jan 17, 2019

    By gabemac17
    Good app - however, I would like to know the music information when it is being played, similar to the app for KDFC.
  • Does what I wanted Mar 25, 2020

    By walrus-moose
    I wanted a way to stream Cap Radio classical and this app does that. The app is the current NPR-style: overly busy and difficult to navigate, but I put that on whomever NPR contracted to build it (the WEMU app is the same). I do like being able to replay shows, and that’s the main advantage over just a live mp3 stream through iTunes.

  • Well organized app Feb 21, 2018

    By Nauthor
    So many applications require you to either scroll or click-thru pages to get relevant material. Everything I want is on the opening page of the app—no click-thru, no scrolling. Great if you are working from a smaller screen size like a phone.

    Having the ability to read, and listen to the news, with the option to listen to music away from the radio is great. I read an interesting article on Thelonious Monk and purchased an album based on the article. Good job Cap Radio.
  • Listening to the max Oct 28, 2020

    By Victorsir
    This app has been quite flexible with the listening experience and the storytelling pervalance within this news and classical streaming sites and always finding a way to make a difference with donations.
  • My ‘go to’ news app no matter where in the country I am. Jul 27, 2019

    By HI Monk Seal
    Appreciate the outstanding reliability of this app, unlike another NPR station whose app I had to delete. Cap radio also has excellent additional stories to read or listen to that are sorted by category.
