What's New in Version 3.4

Could be great.
I like this app especially after I stopped using TuneIn because it opened a browser page (one of my pet hates). I started using this and it is a great app. A couple of points though- the app has to have the screen on for the alarm to work- trouble is when you get a notification from other apps overnight the screen defaults and turns off so the alarm doesn't go off- this makes the alarm function useless! With background app refresh you should be able to put the phone on standby mode and the app just ticks along in the background- when the alarm goes off it then should play. As it is it's useless. The screen being on all the time for the alarm is rubbish and the glow is annoying even on low and I would question how good it is for screen burn (potentially damaging the screen). Finally it does need a manual option for buffering times- manual set for 10,20,30 seconds would be useful. Not a bad app but needs improving to be great.
Alarm when stream unavaiable
Problem with alarm when radio stream is unavailable alarm does not go off, well it does but without sound! needs alternative sound in case radio stream is unavailable. Especially for RadioX, this might not be the apps fault but RadioX as its had difficulty with too many people listening online?
Also alarm function goes off in middle of night if you get a calendar notification!
Repeat alarm function needed.
Otherwise great app.
Alarm function limited
The app is generally good but why can't we have an alarm function that allows you to set repeats so that it switches on every morning at a preset time. Having to reset it every time is unworkable. I'd also like the option for night mode to go blank, I don't want the glow of the screen in my bedroom.
