Best Windows 8 Apps
17 August 2015
That's right. Apps are like little baby elephants. They must be continually watered, fed and nurtured. This is why app ecosystems fail. Due to customers getting excited to use apps, then the apps they downloaded all start to fail, and eventually they stop using those and any apps at all. It's super simple how this will play out guys. Fix this.

Was one of my favorite apps, but now when I open it, it just crashes.
31 March 2015
Doesn't play live broadcast.

This app doesn't run on Windows 10 TP (build 10041). Reports that you should try to restart the application after displaying the main screen and showing progress dots across the top. Unusable.

App crashes shortly after opening - won't stream. Need my KEXP fix in Dallas!

Unfortunately I've never been able to make this app work on my Surface Pro 3. It starts up but just hangs and never is able to play music. Huge bummer, because obviously KEXP is an awesome station regardless!

Kept saying to retry.

This is my favorite app. The design and the features are great. Unfortunately, it just stopped working on me and won't work even if I reinstalled it. It also is a little buggy in general. Since it does not function, I cannot give it more than 1 star. I would gladly give 5 stars if it could be restored to being fully functional.

Love KEXP, but this app needs work! Press play on the "On the air now". Never plays. Press stop, then Play again, and it will crash. Happens every machine I've ever tried it on, been trying for over a year.

Loved this app while it was working. Recently it will not play the live stream. The artist info changes, but no audio. All saved performances and shows play just fine. Closing and reopening the app or changing the streaming quality doesn't help either. Please fix the stream. It is the perfect app for listening to awesome music at work!

Love the UI design but without the functionality it's useless

I really, really want to give 5 stars because it is a fantastically designed app. Unfortunately there is a bug with the live feed. I have tried on many days to get it to work but it doesn't. Other than the live feed, there is a lot to this app. You can stream archived shows (this works), you can view live performances (works), every other feature on this app works except for the live feed. Once they get this to work, then it is a 5 star app.

I'm a huge radio fan and I love listening to KEXP on the radio or the web but this app makes it even better. I use it all the time!

I love KEXP, and I love the fact that this app exists and is kept up to date.
I do not love that for some reason, the app does not output any audio on my PC.
Streaming from the website works, my other audio apps (Xbox music, songza, etc) all work just fine...there's really not much available in the app or Windows to troubleshoot with.
Is this a known thing? Am I doing something terribly wrong? (again, if all my other audio apps work just fine, I'm looking at this app first)

A life without music would be a mistake. Installed kexp app on both 8.1 surface and my windows phone with 8.1 preview and can't get either to function.

Aplikacja potrafi czasem sama się zrestartować, dlatego 4*

This is a great start to a solid KEXP app!
I think there is a bookmark feature, but the button is grayed out. Please enable it soon!
After my phone reset I lost a lot of the songs I had marked as favorites. for both WP8 and W8 apps it would be great to have a playlist export or save across devices feature. That way I can periodically backup those cool new songs I've discovered :)

Tons of different audio options, gracefully laid out on a single page.

I just have a lot of awesome artists to enjoy thanks to KEXP. Is a great App and run without any problem.
12 December 2013
It stopped working for me after a few months of usage. I can not longer stream the live feed.
7 December 2013
Recently the live stream ceased functioning. The app is still well designed, but without this functionality, it has become severely crippled.
29 July 2013
Hi, great app. Can you update to show "live performances" more recent than July 1 2013? thanks
9 July 2013
This the rt app I have ever given 5 stars to, well done!
2 May 2013
The live broadcast streaming is fixed. Love this app!
29 April 2013
The app just stopped working for me one day (not playing the live feed). I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still does not work.

Swipe in from the right and choose best audio quality from settings

One of the best designed Windows 8 in the store-it shows just how great the native Windows 8 experience can be.
KEXP is my favorite radio station, and this app is great for listening to the live radio broadcast as well as any show played in the last two weeks. Also you can watch in-studio video performances and podcasts. No problems for me listening and watching for hours on end.

I love and support KEXP, but this application needs some work. It's great for checking out details on what is playing, but it doesn't work well for playing the music since your computer will still go into sleep mode or will silently kill the app (because it's not active maybe?) I hope that this will get fixed so I can use this app to both play music and see what's currently playing.
