It is the best alarm clock

Unfortunately it does freeze up from time to time. Would like to know how to fix it.

Best clock radio app

I’ve been using this app for years. If you love using it as a traditional clock radio to wake up to AM/FM stations, or to listen to AM/FM stations it remains the best. The button design to set stations, settings to set brightness and volume are great. Even provides the local weather all for a reasonable yearly fee.

The only problem for which I used to contact Mark is when certain stations change their streaming links. If you are a local CBS news radio junkie this is a regular issue since Audacy purchased these stations. I’ve notified Shoutcast about this but it is not priority for them.

For our yearly fee 😀 I would suggest Mark check the following stations quarterly or so and update the app with working links if needed for the following Audacy CBS news stations:

WBZ 1030 Boston

WCBS 880 New York

WINS 1010 New York

WBBM 780 Chicago

WKNX 1070 Los Angeles

Many of the above now simulcast with corresponding concurrent FM stations also.

and these additional city news, weather, sports stations that frequently change their links:

KTAR talk/news 98.3 Phoenix AZ

Arizona Sports 98.7 Phoenix AZ

If done for the app then everyone has these working stations rather than just for individual users.

Thanks for such a great app!

Developer Response ,

You should contact support if you are having problems. Weather does not sync, not sure what you mean by this. Contacting us with a problem is how we make the app better, we have had no other users report these issues so it could be your device, simply use the contact link in the weather panel and we will get back to you the same day.

Alarm sound doesn’t play over bluetooth

Compliments on your work, simple enough yet very useful. I am trying to use it in conjunction with my blootooth speakers in order to setup an alarm that can play in my bedroom. Although I can hear the alarm sound on my speakers during a setup, when the alarm is actually triggered it plays only on device itself, athough the bluetooth connection is verified to still be active. Hoping you can fix this bug/ feature soon. Otherwise, a great product.
