Customer Reviews

  • Broadcast not live

    by tnaks27

    Ap works OK, but if you want to listen to live play by play commentary while you are at a live UH game, you cannot listen via this ap. The broadcast is delayed about a minute compared to the live action. Tried this at both the UH Women's Volleyball game as well as the Football game. Still have to bring my radio to listen to live action. Ap is OK if you are not at the game do you wouldn't notice the broadcast delay.

  • perfect for me

    by gepapaya

    Don't know what others are having problems with. For me, since I downloaded in Aug 2011, and even after the fix on Sept 2011 to allow background playing, I've never experienced ANY problems. Stream continuously without problems. I always wonder about apps (or software, in general)... there are those that complain that it doesn't work at all, all the way to those that have absolutely no problems. I always wonder what the problem is...

  • Works great for me

    by DickGazinya

    Works just fine for listening live. I haven't tried it for a football game broadcast yet.

  • Works great

    by Andy Cochrane

    Not sure about the other reviews, maybe they fixed it or something. I just installed it and they game is coming through loud and clear.

  • Add AM1500

    by D-Man40

    Station 1420 works good but need to add AM 1500 then this app can be 5 star!

  • Error during on air play

    by Glw1231

    Every time I try to play the on air, it always cuts out and says Error playing/retry. It would be a good app if I could listen to the app!!

  • Worst App Ever.

    by SqeakingKev

    Never works. Only plays for a few seconds then stops. Never starts again without restarting the app. This is really bad for the only ESPN Honolulu stream available on iOS.

  • Terrible!

    by Hawaiineneboy

    This app is terrible. I'm watching the game live and the broadcast is at least 2 plays behind. Useless.

  • App is almost useless

    by wundermite

    This was a good app once they fixed background playing. After the most recent update, it's back to useless. All the old problems of the stream getting cut off, no playing in background (must stay in app) and no playing when screen is off have returned. I want to like it but prefer to do other things while listening, if not i would just get a little radio.

  • Needs improvement

    by daniboykf15

    The broadcast on this app is constantly getting cutting off. I want to listen to Hawaii sport but listening through this app has been extremely frustrating.

  • Archive shows!

    by Hawaean

    One of the biggest missing features is linking streams of entire shows for those who can't listen live. Which also means you need to have podcast episodes. Guarans get plenty people who could use that!

  • Too bad

    by Stoptellingmenicknameistkn

    Agree totally with most other reviews. Wished it worked, hopefully you radio guys kept the receipt cuz this developer boned you guys. Love that the technology exists, wish you guys wouldnt advertise it until they work the bugs out. I guess not enough people download the app for you to care to update, too bad.

  • Doesnt play radio at all!

    by Pong Tom

    Hit play and nothing happens...don't usually write reviews but this app was that terrible

  • Fix this!!!

    by Artimus808

    Very frustrating trying to listen to the University of Hawaii football and it stops playing after about 15 minutes, then keeps locking up every time I restart the app. Now it won't start at all!! C'mon, it's a darn AM radio!!!

  • Worthless

    by mathematiks

    The latest version made it even worse than before. Very frustrating.

  • Terrible

    by Jw1256

    Good thing this app is free bc does not work! Espn your the number 1 leader in sports act like it.

  • Doesnt work

    by bagayas

    Plays for a few seconds then stops. Thought it might be buffeting but it never resumes playing.

  • Does Not Work!


    Repeat: Does Not Work!

  • No iOS 4 multitask support, no 1500AM support

    by williado

    Just like the ESPN Radio app, crashes after 15 minutes. Doesn't allow for multi-tasking support. Turns off after pressing home button. No way to switch to AM1500 feed.
