Customer Reviews

Unrivalled content but a couple of bugs

Been using this app thru its various versions since the beginning. I'm an ABC radio addict. I listen to radio throughout the day. It is the most content rich material available. Real knowledge and information delivered in depth and without "adornment" across many fields and viewpoints. It is a treasure of immense value to our nation.
The app is great but has the occasional hiccup. Sometimes it forgets a couple of your favourite programs and fails to download new eps on wifi. LNL slips off the list for some reason quite often. Also, every program is broken down into stories. It's is not possible to listen to the entire program as a single object. Not a major drama but it would be nice as it sometimes hops to a different program after a single segment has been played. There are issues with what it thinks you have listened to and what is unplayed. Also, it sometimes takes forever to download programs if you select many to download at a time, tho if you do them one at a time they download quickly. Queueing system?
I would like to see a simple list of the shows I've subscribed to as presently you need to spool down many pages to get to something at the end of your list. You've already subscribed so you don't need the detail of each show displayed again as if you were still "exploring". Im sure the ABC online team are constantly working on improvements and bug fixes and I look forward to seeing the fruits of their labours.. 4+

Simply ABC

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.

Love the content, but interface could be better.

Perhaps in this day and age we have become blasé about how readily we can access music, video and communications of all types. This little app puts all the many and varied radio station content of Auntie in your pocket, at your finger tips, in your earbuds, using nothing more than a thin rectangle of glass, metal and plastic! Amazing! And it works in the background so you may listen whilst going other things. Thank you Auntie. You are a national treasure. Keep up the good work.
