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.

COAST station in not working

I love this App for home, work and the car. My favourite station has literally been silent all week - COAST radio station- both my husband and I are unable to hear anything but all the other stations work fine. Is there a fix for this?

Very handy app - provides company when I am out on the farm can tune into cheerful music when I need a bit of cheer and onto news stations when I want to know what’s going on in the world and I can leave if off when I want to listen to the nature around me.
