Customer Reviews

Great App, great content

There have been ups and downs with this app and I have experienced cosmetic and usability bugs but I use it extensively and have never had any real showstoppers. Occasional frustration in the past but nothing to stop me listening to and discovering new live and archived programmes from across many stations.

More visibility of known issues and what is/isn't fixed in release notes from the team would be welcome. There's also a few features I'd love to see, the team seem to be welcoming and responding to feedback though.

But otherwise a great app.

Update: I think almost all of the features on my wish list are now in the app! It really has gone from strength to strength over the last few years.

Much improved.

Seems a lot easier to navigate now, almost like old times. I think I will get used to the new look new look now that the unnecessary and distracting visual elements have been turned down.
Latest Update - not good. The 'wheel' channel selector has no indication of which channel to choose, so you have to guess by what pictures come up as you turn it!

Much better options

There are numerous better options available and as such I can’t recommend this app.
