DDR Makes Listening Easier!

Whether you’re an iPhone, iPad or Android user, we have you covered with an app for your device! These apps were custom built for DDR by our partners, Liquid Compass. Now listening to DDR is faster, easier, and more dependable than ever. Just click one of the icons below to go to the download page. And oh yes, they’re FREE. We paid for them so you don’t have to!

Mobile Listening Tips

1. Download and use our FREE mobile apps – it’s more stable and it’s a quicker connect.

2. Make sure to disconnect when you’re done listening. This is important because when you reconnect to the stream, you’ll be listening “current.” If you don’t do this, what you hear may be way behind what’s actually playing.

3. Refresh occasionally. This again keeps you current.

4. If you are driving you may notice periods of “drop out.” This is normal because most 3g and 4g networks are overtasked. Even if you have 3 or 4 bars (for data and phone calls a great signal). We stream in High Definition Stereo which requires a lot more bandwidth, but this gives you the best quality sound possible. Be patient! Cell providers are working hard to improve their delivery and as time goes on, you will have a better, more dependable experience.

Since partnering with Liquid Compass in early January, we have had a 99.65% up time! We also have no limit on the number of listeners that can connect to our stream. We use the latest “state of the art” technology to deliver the best quality audio we can provide. It costs more but we feel it’s worth it! Enjoy and remember, your feedback is always welcome. Thanks for listening to DDR, the “Voice of the City!”
