What's New in Version 3.1.2
Fixed problem for some users where Stations and Category on-demand list would be blank instead of showing programs.
As far as streaming radio apps go this is s very user friendly app. No registration is required and although it has a number of "advanced" features like recording programs for off line listening, a wake up to radio you don't need to use them to enjoy live streaming radio programs from any ABC radio station no matter where you are including overseas. It has a great help and feedback page and provides a quick link to ABC Emergency Services online. All in all a great easy to use app that does precisely what it is meant to do and more.
Streaming in Summer
I enjoy listening to your breakfast program in the mornings very much.
To be able to stream it from my phone has been even better as I am often on the go from home to the car and different destinations where radio reception is not good.
Now that it is summer it almost impossible.
I am in Brisbane so the only radio you stream is from an hour in the future.
Listening to the podcasts is one alternative, but there is no news broadcast that I can find, and it is simply not the same as listening to a national broadcast.
Moreover it is very disappointing that announcers make no acknowledgement that they are being listened to by people outside their timezone, I refer mostly to the time calls.
I would have expected ABC to provide a more inclusive service.
Perhaps it is time for announcers to stop making time calls altogether.
I continue to enjoy many ABC broadcasts, it is a shame it is such a struggle
Being portable this app goes around with me in the morning. The phone had a little chat with the car radio and they work out together which one will give me ABC radio. Sometimes I get to hear the same snippet. But this is preferable to spending time switching things on and off while juggling the frantic departure.
Feeling looked after - thank you ABC.
