What's New in Version 2.1.1
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
This is fast becoming my favourite app. I connect my iPhone via wifi to my Bose sound link and the quality is just fantastic. Thanks for making finding radio stations a whole lot easier and faster.
Best radio app
Brilliant quality sound on wi-fi connection (the app has Airplay so I play it through my speakers). It's clever - I think it switches down to lower bitrates when you're on a cell connection. I guess this saves data. Top app.
Best radio app - but can't recommend it
Latest update has not resolved the following...
This is the best radio app but I can't recommend it because streaming quality over 3G/4G is so poor - like a bad mp3. If you care about audio quality I suggest you try out the excellent Radium.
At the very least, give advanced users the option to choose a higher quality, more data intensive stream.
Also the iPhone version does not allow you to save favourite shows, only favourite stations.
