What's New in Version 2.6.2
Very limited number of stations. Fortunately its possible to enter your own urls. What this app needs: 1) The developers need shrink down the front page display so that the user has access to all the preset stations. As it is you can only access 7 stations. This is not enough. 2) Allow the user to put their own titles onto the presets. 3) Allow users to change the background appearance via their own photos. In other words allow users to skin Livio Car Internet Radio. As the app currently is, its just another half baked app wanting too much money for poor implementation.
Best radio option for new music
For someone who can't stand listening to the same songs more than a dozen times, this app was an amazing find. I have been using it for two years - there are so many worldwide audio streams, I can always find a station that plays new music (or rather, music that's new to me). I use this in my house, my car and hotels when I'm traveling.
Not bad but could be better
The app is a great way to get connected to streams while on the go.
I don't like the way it wipes out searched subjects and you have to retype.
Some stations load instantly and others are slow.
Overall the app works well when you are traveling where there is good cell service so it's not a total replacement for satellite radio, but there are no monthly fees besides data rates so it's pretty cool.
