Editors' Notes

Enjoy your favourite radio stations, whenever and however you want.

Lots of problems


Having the new global player app that allows you to download shows is great, however it is full of bugs. There is often a connection error when trying to play downloaded shows requiring the app to be restarted. The forward and backwards 20secs button don’t work properly. The forward 20secs jumps forward about a minute and the backwards 20secs button moves it forward a few seconds so you can’t skip back without moving the slider. I’ve also found the sound quality of downloaded shows to be poor when compared to other radio apps. The biggest problem is the space it uses. I have been downloading the Chris Moyles show since the app arrived and it appears not to purge itself. I currently have 2 shows downloaded and the app takes up 7.39Gb!
This app needs to address the above issues, then it will be brilliant and get 5 stars.
