Ratings and Reviews
App Not Working.
5FM app keeps giving the following error when trying to listen live “ Streaming Error - The audio Stream timed out “
Happens even after removing and adding the app again.
On latest iOS and using the 8Plus.
Can’t stream the app
Guess the SABC doesn’t have any money to fix this app. Been getting the stream error for a while now. Very disappointing not being able to listen to what once was my fave SA station.
This app deserves a lot of praise for its great graphics, speedy response, great look & feel and general ease of use. The playlist doesn't seem to update often enough and as such you can't always see the current song nor do previous songs show up. Easily fixable in the backed though but overall an impressive app. Kudos to the designer who clearly knows what he's doing!
