Everybody wants more


I have been using the absolute app for a few years now. I access the site every weekend and most nights. It's great access to music when most radio stations go either off piste or stick on the evening loop tapes and serve out the same old tut night after night.
The great thing about absolute is you get to select your decade and to some degree your genre. Take it to another level and. Exonerated a member (it's free) and you don't listen to as many ad's. Everybody wants more and so here it is, more.
I mean Frank Skinner on a Saturday morning and Jason Manford on a Sunday morning, now everyone is trying a celebrity format at the weekends.... just not doing quite as good a job of it.
I lived in Dublin for a while and I could access Absolute there on the app, I was away for a short break in Paris recently and it's there too, anywhere I go on holiday, it's there. My advice, download it, try it, if it's not for you delete it, but you won't, it's one of those apps that will creep up the pages and will soon be on your front screen, then the dilemma of which one does it replace .....

Love it, love it, love it.

I have spent years trying to find a radio station that was right for me and Hallayluyah at last I have found it. The app is great - I am not technically minded and it is really straightforward. I particularly like the fact that you can get a bonus track instead of blinking adverts that drive me up the pole. Consequently the very few that I do happen to get are fine.
Love that I can have time with a different decade if I fancy a change. All round I have spent my last week happily singing along and reminiscing instead of bored with 'same old- same old' - enjoy !

Absolutely love it


The app itself works very well (when connected to wifi, I haven't tried it without) and the music variation is insane! I have recently got bored listening to the same songs from my playlists, but Absolute play songs from my favourite artists and loads of tunes I haven't heard in ages! Also, if you become a member (free of cost) then you only listen to maybe a a third/quarter of ads and they play bonus songs, a great feature as it's free to become a member and took about a minute tops. Highly recommend.
