    I was so excited to see this update on my phone last night. And today I am pulling up my dj shows I have missed. This is GREAT. I have been wanting this for a long time.

    Only one feature request. Can you guys add the ability to do AirPlay so I can wirelessly pump tunes into stereo?

    Thank you kexp!

    Dear KEXP-

    The ‘favorites’ button doesn’t work since the update.
    Otherwise it’s a great new version, looks great.

    Love this app been using the kexp app religiously since it first showed up in the App Store. This latest version is great except for Bluetooth streaming via iPhone 4S while on wifi it constantly cuts out. If I switch to cellluar there is no issue which seems weird. It happens with both a jawbone jambox and a eton rukus solar. Same issue on different wifi networks. Otherwise keep up the good work!

    I LOVE the new version, thank you so much! However, I don’t see a dj request option from my favorites like on the old version. Am I missing something?

    Maybe I just hadn’t updated this app in a long time… But the best bit is that it’s now iPad native as well. This app now officially rocks!

    +1 for the request to integrate an AirPlay button into the app though…

    I’ve run into this issue twice now with the most recent update, but sometimes I’ll press Pause and the song will continue to Play. Then I’ll hit Play and I’ll have two of the same song playing at the same time. The only way I can get it to stop is to delete the app and reinstall.

    Please add Airplay!

    Seattle transplant to Brooklyn and I desperately want to send the music from this app to my home computer and pretend I’m still in Eastlake.

    The new update is great, though.

    You can use the KEXP iPhone app with airplay! Just lock your screen after bringing up the stream you want to play. Double click the home button. Then you’ll see the airplay speaker selector. Choose your speakers and you’re good to go!
    Thanks, KEXP!!!!

    Dear KEXP:

    Is there any way of exporting the “Favorites” tracks from the iphone app yet?
    A .csv, .doc or .txt file wouls be great.

    If not – is that in the works?

    Thank you and keep up the great work!

    Do you know if there is a problem with iPhone 5 app? It won’t link to iTunes. Thanks!

    Where’s the calendar portion of your app that lists all upcoming shows? Bummer.

    Love the app. Two big UI requests:

    The “favorites” star on the Listen Now screen is right above the “Favorites” star on the menu. There’s plenty of room for bigger buttons to start with. But don’t put the identical symbol right on top of itself, please, please.

    Also… unselected Favorites in nav is grey, unselected favorites in Listen Now is white. So when I see what song is playing, I automatically assume I’ve already liked it, because the star looks selected when compared with the nav star. Please make their states identical for consistency sake.

    Obviously flat design hit big right after you released this (and the website itself is badly in need of a flat responsive overhaul), but if the next iteration could have bigger buttons and flat icons, that would make it easier to use.

    +1 on exporting favorites. I get hundreds, then have to go through them by hand.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    When I try to buy a tune on either my iPhone or iPad I get a message saying Safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server. This has been going on for about a year. What to do?
