Customer Reviews

Daily fix

I downloaded this app during the time of the Sydney siege to listen to get updates while at work. Was excellent source of information in a crisis event. Find this source of news much better than reading the Internet. Love the different channels and listen to abc radio most days. Only issue I have with this app is while listening to documentaries or the news, sometimes it does a repeat up to three times of the same thing. Hope they fix it.

Better and better

This app gets better with every update. I've just recently moved to a regional area and I can keep up with all that is happening in the last two cities I lived in and still get to know my new area. Whatever mood I'm in, there's something perfect to listen to and the podcast function is great.

No more podcasting

I love this app as it means I don't have to download as many podcasts anymore. It's great to be able to listen to RN when I am out and about without a radio which is a big part of my day (believe me the gym doesn't play RN) and at night it is always handy to play in bed. I just love it.
