What's New in Version 3.1.0
Complete app redesign and feature update.
As good as any other app of this type
The app works as well as any other streaming app. That being said, it is just as fragile as any other such app.
The app does not handle the transitions from WiFi to Wireless and vice-versa well. The stream will stop and you have to close the app (double click the home button and swipe-away the app) and start it back up to get it to work again.
On the user interface, the button to start the stream playing is very small and very close to the top of the screen. It would be easier to mash the button one-handed if it were larger and closer to the bottom of the screen.
Terrible. Drops out or disconnects. Does not come back to same place so you have to listen from the start. Can not move elapsed time. Drops out when going to another application. Drops out when screen times out.
Way worse than prior version.
Streaming is unusable
The previous version would drop the stream occasionally but was ok. This update is horrible. I'm lucky if I can get a minute of audio before it drops.
