I've been listening to SomaFM since 2006 and am so happy they've kept it going and current with technology. I used to have an iOS device and the Soma app worked very well. Android had no official app at first, but now we have this one, which is great with one exception. The stream stops after a few minutes while connected via Bluetooth with the screen locked. I have to unlock the screen to get the stream working again.

I love that I can get SomaFM on a mobile device. I like the design very much. But I am amending my review to report that a) it doesn't stop playing when you pull the cord or turn off the BT device like all other music players do and b) it can become nonresponsive while playing and I have no way to kill it. I have ver 1.8.1. Update. Uninstalled. I can't have a music app that won't pause or close.

Sorry for your troubles. The regression you mentioned in (a) is fixed in 1.8.2 and the ANR you mentioned in (b) is fixed in the upcoming 2.0 release (in the mean time, disable visualizations)
Have been a SomaFM listener since the early 2000s and love these stations more than any other. This app is a *wonderful* way to access and stream somaFM, and I give it nearly 5 stars for ease of use, reliability, quality. The missing final star is because when you stop playback/quit the app, the next time you toggle Bluetooth on your device, this app begins playing and doesn't want to stop. Controls for the app vanish from Android and don't come back unless you restart radioOMG.
