Great in the car.

This works great with the Bluetooth connection in the car. Especially as it shows the station channel info on the car radio very quickly, and responds to up- and down-channel changes from steering wheel buttons, as well as the on-screen forward and back buttons. No other app seems to do all of that so well, or so quickly. The Favourites layout works well for me too. The app just works well. Recommended.
