What's New in Version 6.2
Minor User interface enhancements and bug fixes.
Good idea, poor implementation
1. A lot of dead streams is returned by the search.
2. The search itself is primitive, rudimentary and plain not reliable. No ability to browse/filter by geography or language.
3. No indicators of connection and buffering progress.
4. No ability to select different bitrate streams offered by many stations
5. No ability to add a known stream link as a string directly without going through search
Did the developers even look at other streaming apps (Tune-In, for example) before "reinventing the wheel"? Doesn't look like it. Here is a "cherry on the cake": I tried to add "Russian Radio" ("Russkoe radio"). They have multiple internet broadcasts from several cities in Russia and even affiliate stations outside Russia. So, the Aha search finds several links within Russia, the main one from Moscow, one from Novosibirsk, one from Yekaterinburg, and some shout casts from other cities. The one from Moscow is dead. When I try to add either Novosibirsk or Yekaterinburg, I end up listening to "Russian Radio, Ukraine", i.e. not from Russia at all (yes, content is different) which didn't even show up in the search results!
What an awesome app. I can listen to all my favorite content while driving in my car
Subaru uses this app for streaming in my 2013 outback. They may as well have no streaming at all. This crashes all the time. During the rare times it does connect, the sound quality is lousy, muffled with no treble at all.
