It plays ogg vorbis streams!! That in itself is worth 5 stars. Simple and clean interface. Could use stream metadata information and update but other than that, it works for me! Thank you so much. Look forward to more from this app. EDIT: looks like on my droid mini the stream doesn't actually stop when you hit pause, this could spell disaster for those with limited data plans.
Super easy to add streams. Request, can you please find a way to keep the stream playing while the screen is off? Also, i've yet to find an app that will stream when you've changed windows. If it had those two features, itd be 4 stars. But leaving the screen on the entire time im listening and only being able to listen while the app is open on the screen is impractical.
does what it promises it's not getting five stars because if you try to load a station that is not there it will simply loop forever with a "Loading station..." popover that never ever goes away,even if you change the station to one that is working,you have to turn it off and on again.other than this stupid bug it's a good app and sometimes works better than the revered vlc
Unique but there are issues Bravo as this app is unique being dedicated to icecast. Major issues are: Search feature keyword results are problematic. Query "college" = 1 result. Same query on icecast website = dozens of results. If you return to the list while listening the stream is broken. Need a better way to scroll through the HUGE genre list, it contains many cryptic names & requires massive swipes to go through. These improvements would serve all well, limited search results being the most critical. Thank you!
Doesn't even load stations App worked once. Upon 2nd use it stopped at 34% during the station update and app crashed. Cleared app and reloaded now will do nothing. Even search function always comes back with "no results found :(" appears app has not been updated for 10+ months. I would consider this app abandoned by author.
Could be great, but only OK as it is This 'tuner' is ok, but it could be great with a few minor tweaks. It's a pity that a large proportion of the stations in the list don't work. Perhaps someone needs to go through the list to delete those that don't work? An annoying bug is that a Loading station... alert box displays at the bottom of the listen page when you select a station, but this alert box doesn't go away if a station fails to download or you return back to the station list. Why not include a Cancel station download button on the play screen? Alternatively, the Loading station... alert should turn off automatically if you return to the station list. In my experience, if a station hasn't downloaded within 20 seconds, it's never going to download so I think the app should display cannot play station sooner. There are better 'tuners' out there - TuneIn, Shoutcast (on Winamp player - not available on Play Store, but you can still find it), Live 365 are all better, but this is still worth having
- Fixes for unwanted playback autostart.
- Improved accessibility (automatic detection and interface adjustment)
- You can now turn off automatic updates o stations' list or adjust how often it should happen
- The player now keeps playing when in background and when the display is dimmed.
- The playback does not interrupt when changing the orientation
