Wonderful music, especially at Christmas. Stripped down app just gives essentials. Works cleanly on CarPlay. How refreshing compared to other bloated music apps out there. Thank you King-FM! I live 3,000 miles from Seattle, but I feel the warmth of your great music!
Good clear sound

I don't care for streaming apps or services, but I like this one (and one other). I like the separate channels idea- the symphonic channel is a favorite. Just after Halloween, they run the classical Christmas channel for a short amount of time, as well. Still works well on my iPod touch running 7.1.2. Great app.
LATEST UPDATE LARGE BUG 12/2/16
by Balinova on 2016/12/04 16:09
PLEASE FIX... I am a sustaining member and downloaded the latest app update. I have an iPad 4 and iPhone 7. For any channel other than the main KING FM channel, if the screen goes to sleep or I lock the screen, the app stops playing. As long as I have the screen active and the equipment unlocked the other channels will continue to play - Evergreen, Christmas, 2nd Inversion etc. Needless to say this results in the great sucking battery sound and is frustrating. Please fix!

Outdated Won't play
Needs better music info
by NotSilentBob on 2015/12/18 19:41
I would give this 5 stars but it is quite inadequate in regards to displaying information on the song currently playing. Instead of using the bulk of the screen to display the artist, song title,album, etc..., the screen just shows the station logo (or a giant nutcracker head in the case of the Christmas station) and has a very small section for the song info. There is not enough room to display all the data for the zone and it usually runs off the screen. Devote more attention to the song information.
Sleep timer please
by Klaverma on 2015/09/26 02:45
This app is great. It only needs a sleep timer
Nice selection
by Sand trap7500 on 2015/06/20 17:46
I would give this a five star rating if the "Songs of Spain" button worked in the on demand section. Please fix it or remove it. It is most disappointing it does not play.
Bug fix please!

since the latest update for the ipad, this app does not play in the background, even when closeing the ipad cover. it did before, so please fix this! i love ur variety of stations, especially the christmas channel.

Opera!!!
by LouiseC303 on 2013/11/06 07:50
Can’t get much opera in my radio area. Even though we have an opera company, and a classical FM radio station. Maybe why the opera company is not doing well. So KING FM Classical and Opera is my go-to app. Love it! One little request: make the app for the iPad too! Hurray. Thanks so much KING Classical FM.
Symphonic music channel doesn't work
by Michelle Delgadillo on 2013/10/07 04:21
I tried all my options for listening to the symphonic music channel and all it's given me is the intro to the channel and that's it. I get complete silence afterwards. You guys need to fix that pronto
Slow slow slow zzzzzz
by emmi_789 on 2013/02/22 23:42
I only use this Ap to learn what is playing when I listen on the radio. It does not show what is playing at the time I open the Ap. Instead I must wait for the entire daily schedule to download. What a pain! One great radio station with one terrible ap. Please hire someone to fix it.
I must have app

This app Rock playing classic and opera wow 😊supreme I know you guys will love it.
Superb

I love it. I listen to you guys all THE TIME!!!
Works GREAT! Best classical station!
by Tech_Bunny on 2012/12/17 05:09
I'm listening to the christmas channel right now! Works just fine on iPhone 4S running iOS 5. In fact I've never had a problem with any of the updates to this app. It just works.
It turns off itself
by Young-ho Lee on 2012/07/13 15:09
It turns off itself after about 15minutes. So I should click the play button again after the music has stopped, of course. What's going on? I really loved this app..!
Thank you!
by asdfghqwertyyvgdj on 2012/06/02 09:19
For those who say you cant turn it off followed by a rude comment, Learn how to use your phone before complaining. I play king fm almost 24 hours a day for my baby through my iphone at home and sometimes it turns off by itself out of nowhere, no incoming message, or call just turns off so i have to go back into the app and press the play button again . It turns off like this maybe about 10 times throughout the day. Maybe its a glitch on the app? Anyone else have this problem?
Great app, great music

Unparalleled classical music streaming. What a treat!
Choose your type of classical music
by 888dc888 on 2012/03/30 15:59
I like the four options of music this app provides. No problems here with turning the music off; just tap your music selection a second time. It goes from a triangle to a square and it's off!
Can't Turn It Off
by King-FM_Listener_1000 on 2012/01/31 03:55
The only way to turn this app off is to delete it. What an idiotic design. Also, charge for the app don't keep begging for donations. I'm already a member of KING-FM. All this extra begging is a turn off. Heh, too bad you can't turn the app off.
To stop play...
by Shebardigan on 2012/01/22 22:08
Just tap the square "stop" icon on whatever feed you are playing. Nice piece of work.
Great app!!!
by lhrmeonom on 2012/01/13 10:06
For people asking why the music sti plays after you quit out of the app, quit the app, then double tap the home button, hold it as of you were moving icons around, and delete it.
Great music - flawed design
by karenthelibrarian on 2011/12/26 23:18
What an extraordinary music selection, and I'm willing to put up with the pleas for money (and even to donate) to make this service possible. But when the only way to turn the music off is to delete the app, you lost someone who would have been a die-hard fan.

worked fine before, cannot connect any more, i tried deleted and installing again, still does not play any of the channels.
Second-to-none classical music selection
by Az689gobs on 2011/09/14 16:37
I've been listening to KING-FM since their station began webcasting (to my recollection) more than ten years ago, and to have discovered their app -- which not only plays one but four styles of classical music -- proves to me KING-FM is second-to-none in classical music radio stations. That said, the only shortcoming I can report is you're unable to simply exit out of the app and expect the music to continue playing; instead you have to wait for the app to reload via Safari. Most other radio apps have long moved beyond this method, which does leave KING's app slightly dated in comparison. Nevertheless, to have KING's app offer not just one but four still ranks it the gold standard amongst classical radio apps.
4 classical streams?!
by spaceaxe on 2011/05/06 21:49
Opera, and three other classical channels. Wonderful. I'm not hearing too many requests for money. I'm hardly hearing any. Plus, even if I was, isnt great music worth supporting?
What a Shame
by Grenadine Guard on 2011/05/05 14:12
Such wonderful music. Too bad you rarely get to hear it anymore. They constantly ask you for a donation. Why not charge me for the app and let me listen to the music? So intrusive that I deleted it altogether.
Turn it off!
by Tacoma Guy on 2011/01/20 15:51
I can't figure out how to turn this app off. I ended up shutting the phone off then I deleted the app.
Great app
by Angela's Daddy on 2011/01/19 14:06
Love the app & the alarm feature. All works right.
Almost Perfect
by ronson58 on 2010/12/13 21:47
Not much to complain about with this great App... except: --the Alarm doesn't work. It says to leave the App open and in the alarm mode; but this leaves the music streaming. If you tap Stop Streaming, the music stops but alarm still doesn't work. I have yet to get it to function, but haven't given up trying yet. --music pours forth as soon as the App is opened, before I've decided which channel to choose, or whether to play music at all. The default should be silence until a channel is chosen. Gripe gripe gripe. No, this is really a fine App.
Great App!
by 1day2go on 2010/12/02 03:32
As a Tacoma resident, I've enjoyed listening to King FM on the radio for years. Now I can easily listen to Christmas Music from King FM on my iPhone. I like the simple interface. Five stars. One suggestion. Instead of writing the instruction as "Press play to listen", write "Press channel button to play. Press again to stop."

Second-to-none classical music selection
by Az689gobs on 2011/09/14 16:37
I've been listening to KING-FM since their station began webcasting (to my recollection) more than ten years ago, and to have discovered their app -- which not only plays one but four styles of classical music -- proves to me KING-FM is second-to-none in classical music radio stations. That said, the only shortcoming I can report is you're unable to simply exit out of the app and expect the music to continue playing; instead you have to wait for the app to reload via Safari. Most other radio apps have long moved beyond this method, which does leave KING's app slightly dated in comparison. Nevertheless, to have KING's app offer not just one but four still ranks it the gold standard amongst classical radio apps.
4 classical streams?!

Opera, and three other classical channels. Wonderful. I'm not hearing too many requests for money. I'm hardly hearing any. Plus, even if I was, isnt great music worth supporting?
What a Shame
by Grenadine Guard on 2011/05/05 14:12
Such wonderful music. Too bad you rarely get to hear it anymore. They constantly ask you for a donation. Why not charge me for the app and let me listen to the music? So intrusive that I deleted it altogether.
Turn it off!
by Tacoma Guy on 2011/01/20 15:51
I can't figure out how to turn this app off. I ended up shutting the phone off then I deleted the app.
Great app
by Angela's Daddy on 2011/01/19 14:06
Love the app & the alarm feature. All works right.
Almost Perfect
by ronson58 on 2010/12/13 21:47
Not much to complain about with this great App... except: --the Alarm doesn't work. It says to leave the App open and in the alarm mode; but this leaves the music streaming. If you tap Stop Streaming, the music stops but alarm still doesn't work. I have yet to get it to function, but haven't given up trying yet. --music pours forth as soon as the App is opened, before I've decided which channel to choose, or whether to play music at all. The default should be silence until a channel is chosen. Gripe gripe gripe. No, this is really a fine App.
Great App!

As a Tacoma resident, I've enjoyed listening to King FM on the radio for years. Now I can easily listen to Christmas Music from King FM on my iPhone. I like the simple interface. Five stars. One suggestion. Instead of writing the instruction as "Press play to listen", write "Press channel button to play. Press again to stop."
Good clear sound
by mis understood on 2017/11/06 03:37
I don't care for streaming apps or services, but I like this one (and one other). I like the separate channels idea- the symphonic channel is a favorite. Just after Halloween, they run the classical Christmas channel for a short amount of time, as well. Still works well on my iPod touch running 7.1.2. Great app.
Best Classical App
by JerseyBob54 on 2019/11/08 16:27
Wonderful music, especially at Christmas. Stripped down app just gives essentials. Works cleanly on CarPlay. How refreshing compared to other bloated music apps out there. Thank you King-FM! I live 3,000 miles from Seattle, but I feel the warmth of your great music!
Second-to-none classical music selection
by Az689gobs on 2011/09/14 16:37
I've been listening to KING-FM since their station began webcasting (to my recollection) more than ten years ago, and to have discovered their app -- which not only plays one but four styles of classical music -- proves to me KING-FM is second-to-none in classical music radio stations. That said, the only shortcoming I can report is you're unable to simply exit out of the app and expect the music to continue playing; instead you have to wait for the app to reload via Safari. Most other radio apps have long moved beyond this method, which does leave KING's app slightly dated in comparison.

For those who say you cant turn it off followed by a rude comment, Learn how to use your phone before complaining. I play king fm almost 24 hours a day for my baby through my iphone at home and sometimes it turns off by itself out of nowhere, no incoming message, or call just turns off so i have to go back into the app and press the play button again . It turns off like this maybe about 10 times throughout the day. Maybe its a glitch on the app? Anyone else have this problem?
Needs better music info
by NotSilentBob on 2015/12/18 19:41
I would give this 5 stars but it is quite inadequate in regards to displaying information on the song currently playing. Instead of using the bulk of the screen to display the artist, song title,album, etc..., the screen just shows the station logo (or a giant nutcracker head in the case of the Christmas station) and has a very small section for the song info. There is not enough room to display all the data for the zone and it usually runs off the screen. Devote more attention to the song information.
Great App!

Works GREAT! Best classical station!
by Tech_Bunny on 2012/12/17 05:09
I'm listening to the christmas channel right now! Works just fine on iPhone 4S running iOS 5. In fact I've never had a problem with any of the updates to this app. It just works.
Opera!!!
by LouiseC303 on 2013/11/06 07:50
Can’t get much opera in my radio area. Even though we have an opera company, and a classical FM radio station. Maybe why the opera company is not doing well. So KING FM Classical and Opera is my go-to app. Love it! One little request: make the app for the iPad too! Hurray. Thanks so much KING Classical FM.
Choose your type of classical music
by 888dc888 on 2012/03/30 15:59
I like the four options of music this app provides. No problems here with turning the music off; just tap your music selection a second time. It goes from a triangle to a square and it's off!
Great app!!!
by lhrmeonom on 2012/01/13 10:06
For people asking why the music sti plays after you quit out of the app, quit the app, then double tap the home button, hold it as of you were moving icons around, and delete it.
It turns off itself
by Young-ho Lee on 2012/07/13 15:09
It turns off itself after about 15minutes. So I should click the play button again after the music has stopped, of course. What's going on? I really loved this app..!
Great music - flawed design
by karenthelibrarian on 2011/12/26 23:18
What an extraordinary music selection, and I'm willing to put up with the pleas for money (and even to donate) to make this service possible. But when the only way to turn the music off is to delete the app, you lost someone who would have been a die-hard fan.
Nice selection
by Sand trap7500 on 2015/06/20 17:46
I would give this a five star rating if the "Songs of Spain" button worked in the on demand section. Please fix it or remove it. It is most disappointing it does not play.
Bug fix please!
by whattheworld100 on 2014/12/10 20:32
since the latest update for the ipad, this app does not play in the background, even when closeing the ipad cover. it did before, so please fix this! i love ur variety of stations, especially the christmas channel.

Slow slow slow zzzzzz
by emmi_789 on 2013/02/22 23:42
I only use this Ap to learn what is playing when I listen on the radio. It does not show what is playing at the time I open the Ap. Instead I must wait for the entire daily schedule to download. What a pain! One great radio station with one terrible ap. Please hire someone to fix it.

To stop play...
by Shebardigan on 2012/01/22 22:08
Just tap the square "stop" icon on whatever feed you are playing. Nice piece of work.
Can't Turn It Off
by King-FM_Listener_1000 on 2012/01/31 03:55
The only way to turn this app off is to delete it. What an idiotic design. Also, charge for the app don't keep begging for donations. I'm already a member of KING-FM. All this extra begging is a turn off. Heh, too bad you can't turn the app off.
Symphonic music channel doesn't work
by Michelle Delgadillo on 2013/10/07 04:21
I tried all my options for listening to the symphonic music channel and all it's given me is the intro to the channel and that's it. I get complete silence afterwards. You guys need to fix that pronto
I must have app
by bananasaboutJesus on 2013/02/08 17:30

by Klaverma on 2015/09/26 02:45
This app is great. It only needs a sleep timer

by zoroaszter on 2011/10/23 06:29

Great app, great music

LATEST UPDATE LARGE BUG 12/2/16
by Balinova on 2016/12/04 16:09
PLEASE FIX... I am a sustaining member and downloaded the latest app update. I have an iPad 4 and iPhone 7. For any channel other than the main KING FM channel, if the screen goes to sleep or I lock the screen, the app stops playing. As long as I have the screen active and the equipment unlocked the other channels will continue to play - Evergreen, Christmas, 2nd Inversion etc. Needless to say this results in the great sucking battery sound and is frustrating. Please fix!
