Once you've got it, you can listen anywhere
This is the only app I have, never felt a need to find a different one.
Once you have it, you can listen anywhere as long as you have wifi, won't let you download it if you're not in the UK tho'
Crashes a few times and I have an issue with my BB dropping out so it uses up the buffer and stops until the BB comes back, longer buffer please??
Shame some radio stations transmit at a lower volume, sure this could be something radio player could sort out so I don't have to keep turning it up then down!
I Bluetooth to my speakers, need to find out how to stop the iPad notification sounds etc over riding the player.
A must-have app!
I love this app. The area where I live is pretty poor when it comes to variety of radio stations, but with this I can go straight to a station that plays my faces even if I'm out of range. I also like that I can look up the name and artist of any songs that have recently played so I can update my iTunes library. It does crash occasionally, so there are a few bugs to work out before it's perfect.
I use this to listen to the radio and so far have found it brilliant. One downside is that you need wifi as it doesn't work well on mobile data if you are in the car. Which is a shame as I listen to a radio station that is far from local to me that my car radio can't pick up.
But it's good to have all in one place on my phone
