Meet the KQED Android app. We built it with your need-to-know, on-the-go lifestyle in mind. It's the best of KQED Public Radio, Television, and KQED.org content — in an easy to use format.

The app enables you to listen to KQED Public Radio wherever you are — including newscasts, locally produced shows such as Forum and The California Report, and NPR favorites like Fresh Air and All Things Considered — both on demand and via live streaming.

The KQED app also makes it easy to read our popular local blogs including News Fix, Bay Area Bites, MindShift and KQED Arts. There's even an arts events calendar, so you won't miss another '80s zombie movie night in the park.

And because our television programs look dynamite on an Android device, you watch Check, Please! Bay Area, KQED's restaurant review program, while you're waiting for your table to be called. Or QUEST, our exploration of California science and nature in and around the Bay Area, while you're camping!

When you're out and about, the app also helps you keep track of member events and take advantage of KQED Perks. You'll be surprised at how many discounts and special offers are nearby.

    The primary reason I installed this app was so I could listen to KQED. This is basically impossible to do with the app. Audio regularly cuts out, and when it starts again it is no longer surprising to me that it is starting the same show or segment from t

    It would not works 19 out of 20 time. It is always stalled. It is a very bad app. If you try to use this app, you will get upset most of the time.

    Love the ability to get KQED via the net. But it freezes every time! Without fail. I have to restart the phone every time! Without fail. Now that is a fail to me.

    This app simply won't launch consistently, and when it does, it often hangs. Don't install until they fix those issues!
