What's New in Version 2.1
Fixes for broken streams. Apologies for the delay.
Awesome and so easy to work!
As a newbie to iPad and apps, I was somewhat hesitant about adding anything. But this is great, and showed me that sometimes it's good to just jump straight in. A couple of dozen "favourites" were already picked, mostly sensible, but I was easily able to swap a couple to fine-tune what showed on screen. Reception is fantastic, switching stations is instant, display is clear.
Easy to use, works with few problems as long as wifi signal available, increases choice of radio to listen to at home 👍
I wanted an app that just played the normal radio stations but was also surprised by some stations that I'd never heard of like chill which is great to meditate too!!!! And a large range of stations are available too
