Great Radio App
I switched to this app as my previous radio player app was taking longer and longer to buffer and bizarrely when I did manage to connect to my favourite station it was usually running about three minutes behind the actual time, which used to really throw me when I was getting ready for work. This app opens quickly, connects to stations almost instantly and has so far only crashed once in the couple of months that I have been using it [I use it at least once a day, often several times]. There is a multitude of stations from which to choose, you can mark and order your favourites and it offers catch up capabilities. It's not the most stylish app I've ever seen but at the end of the day I'm listening to it, not looking at it. A stable, all-round great app!
Absolutely great app. And I love the way I can put my favourite stations into an order, I haven't got to hunt for them. I just love it. Best app by far.
And also,,, a big plus, if I miss a show, I can go to catch up, and listen anytime, or as many times that I want. Also play it through my home music centre.
One thing if I could add, I wish there was a fifties station, ie, absolute 50s. I can only find stations that go back to the sixties, and I'd love a bit of the old rock n roll. (The 'rock' stations are not old.)
So far so good
This app is great, especially when in the car. I live in an area where I am amongst different radio stations and some of my preferred are towards where I least travel. Sound quality is great and you can basically get every radio channel in Britain! However upon entering the car you do have to manually start the whole app and select the station, it would be very useful if it autoplayed as soon as it connected to the Bluetooth.
