Freedom Of Choice. I truly admire the people that works at the Free Music Archive and those artists who contribute to their cause. This app in particular is an excellent Beta version, and it has quite a few bugs, that I'm sure will be figured out very soon as this is a GNU project. It's commendable, and some users here need to be reminded that this is a non-profit, listen pre-cleared music that can be included in multimedia projects. These guys are not here for the buck and they are neither Google or Apple, so their development resources are limited. Bear that in mind.
Crashes on the S5 Its nicely laid out but please fix the crashes.... When i open up some genre it just stops then crashes..... Or if i scroll down too fast it stops and crashes. Please fix this
Love the concept In theory, this is something I'd use a lot, love, n rate 5/5. In practice, almost everything I want to listen to,and download to my phone,is not playable on the stock Android music player or ES or Google Play music. They're mp3 files,right? Why did I get a FILE TYPE UNPLAYABLE when I attempted(over n over)to use the app. So disappointed. I'm trying the other FMA for FMU app.I love the station but this app, not so much. If fixed I'd be thrilled to edit this and USE the app!
Good BETA I'm excited to finally see that someone made a FMA app, and especially excited to see that it's released under the GPL. Works pretty well for what it is. Would love to be able to search, and choose whether to download an individual song or an entire album.
Concept is great But, it forces close on me every time and the app doesn't carry all the music that's on the web site.
Good start It's a nice start. I'm looking forward to more streaming and less downloading. (Makes space management on the phone easier.)
