Ratings and Reviews
Soma is the best experience
Listener since 2002 here. DJ Rusty keeps this old guy tuned in. Now I’ve got my teenager hooked on it too.
Save ur money
I love soma fm, an listen to it pretty much all day. But, this app really isn't that great. A better deal is to buy the "TuneIn Radio" app. It has all the soma fm channels (plus others), better quality/reliability, and is cheaper to purchase than the soma app.
No Chromecast Anmymore
Chromecast icon vanished. Can't steam to Chromecast anymore.
