Ratings and Reviews
Alarm doesn’t seem to work with podcasts
I bought this hoping to have an alarm to wake me in the morning with a podcast. From what I can tell, you can only use an internet radio station for the alarms. Apparently it must be difficult to do podcasts with alarms, since neither stitcher nor overcast have alarm functionality either.
Apple TV version stops if ATV goes to Screen saver mode
When Using this app on the Apple TV it always stops when the ATV goes to screen saver mode which makes it unusable.
If that can be fixed I would probably start using it again.
A bonus feature would be to allow the TV screen to go in to dark mode so you dont have to have a bright TV screen all the time.
Best radio app I've found
If you're looking for a top quality internet radio player app, this is the one you want. Well designed. Feels like a modern apple app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
