App Credits! 

The first generation iOS app was truly a group effort. We'd like to thank Greg Harrison who designed the app logo, our snappy favorite/download buttons, and the LP artwork you see when images are stuck loading. H. Faye Kahn helped us fix up some buttons (and she does a fantastic radio show.) Also thanks to Liz Berg and Ken Freedman for helping with feedback and troubleshooting, FMA expert Jason Sigal for suggesting favorite tracks and playlists for launch, WFMU's Joe McGasko was our copyeditor, and Brett Thompson built the special APIs to make this possible.

Second generation iOS app wouldn't have been possible without the National Endowment for the Arts, who helped us launch this generation of apps (second verison iOS and first version Android). Thanks to our intrepid beta-testers Jason Sigal, Liz Berg, Jeff Moore and Ken Freedman.
