Great stations, great app

The app - simple, straightforward - worth using in preference to listening through other radio apps, for the benefit of the live track listing.

The station(s) - SomaFM are awesome, and of course they're listener-supported. A combination of Indie Pop Rocks and Folk Forward are rapidly making my music collection redundant, no need to curate for yourself when these guys do such a good job :)

Lovely little app

A very nice standalone player for SomaFM, and a lot better than listening to the stream via iTunes or VLC, as you can see how many others are listening, which is a lovely touch. There’s also a ‘Community’ tab which lets you know the current buzz, news, who’s tweeting what etc etc. It makes Soma feel so much more than a stream of bits.

sounds of silence

It refused to make any noise at all for a while, but after a few restarts, it worked very well, the interface is clean, dark (good) and on my fav drone-zone it will easily allow me to identify, and purchase the tracks via itunes - great !
