note from 2024 as I migrate this post to my new blog: this app is long dead, but keeping the post up for the vibes :). I built this entire app sitting in a hammock in Carleton's arboretum. Good times.
What is KRLX mobile?
KRLX mobile brings KRLX to your phone, enabling you to listen on the go, see information about your favorite shows and DJs, and add songs you like directly to the platforms you listen on, like Spotify and YouTube. Additionally, browse the show schedule for a term and the KRLX blog right from the app, while you're listening.
Also, KRLX Mobile is fully open source, find the source code here: github.com/ironman5366/KRLXMobile
Frequently Asked Questions
Apple music support?
The app says the stream is offline, but I know it's not. What's up with that?
Sometimes there are errors in the data that the stream sends out, and even though audio is sent, KRLX mobile can't read it. In most cases this is caused by a DJ logging a song that has a title with special characters that cause errors in the feed. If this is the case, the information will also be missing on live.krlx.org. If the information is there, but not in the app, it may be an error
Why does KRLX Mobile need to know my location?
Where should I report errors?
Is there a desktop version of this app?
