This is the best app I have ever used. It looks beautiful, works seamlessly, sounds great…it's a work of art, really. Bravo!
Excellent - *****
The only radio app you'll need.
A great radio! - *****
I don't give out 5 stars usually, but this App deserves it. It's simple, does what it says, and the sound quality is very impressive :) Thumbs up!

What's New in Version 3.5
Solid app that works as advertised
Works very well as an Internet radio - still streams in background - simple clear interface.
This app is great - here's one UI improvement I would make - When starting a stream it would be helpful to see a percentage of buffering increasing to 100% before the stream starts playing - just showing the spinning progress indicator of network activity does not give the user any indication of when or if the stream will start playing.
Thank you, Giles!
We don't have much access to UK media here in the midwestern US, so this is fantastic. The app is easy to use, well designed, and works like a charm.
