I like it so far. The auto play when opening the app can be a little annoying.

AH, interesting - I hadn't thought of that. So, you'd prefer if it it didn't play automatically? How about if you had the option (that would be saved) under Settings?

I agree, don't autoplay on app startup. An option to disable that function would address it.

Other than that, really like the big album art!

Any plans for an Android version?

Thanks,
Art

Re: Android: Not right now, but it's something I'd love to do. I'd have to rebuild it in Java from scratch for Android. But it would be worthwhile - I also have to rebuild it from scratch in Swift (right now it's in Objective-C) to bring it up to date with the current Apple language.

OK, a question: So, you're launching the app, but you don't want it to start the music. What do you expect it show on the Now screen? Do you want to see just the AM Logo?

Okay these changes have been implemented in build 4.0, which you should get distributed today. Let me know if you have any problems!

Re: Welcome! Post App Comments/Questions in this forum!

Avian,
Well done, sir. It's trim and simple in terms of the app and streaming the station. I liked the instant on when opening the app, so making it a setting choice keeps me happy.
I had rather hoped a new chat feature would have been included without having to directly connect to the web page. My iPhone 5 screen is hard to try to interface with on the website. I did just order an iPhone XR so that should help some. But still, the website interface feels old and tired. The same could be said for the request page too. That said, I'm not sure if that's a function of the app or the site. And please, I am not disparaging anyone's work on our site as I know how intricate it is to have all sides of the site come together in one package. Everyone has done it brilliantly. But let's just say things have changed in the 12+ years since the site was built and perhaps we need to cover up some of our gray hair.



One thing I love about the app is how little power it uses. When I used Tune-In it would pull the battery down about 4% for every 10 minutes of music played. I can now play the station for over 30 minutes and barely lose 5%. That's a big improvement for a streaming app. Thank you.


I love the big album art. Much easier to read the titles and Artist info.


Thank you again, Avian, for developing this app.

Re: Welcome! Post App Comments/Questions in this forum!

Thanks Dale! Yeah, the chat feature would be a real pain to implement - would require work on the website-side for sure. Also, requests, and generally interacting with the site is difficult (even on large phones) because there is no mobile-friendly version available.

But as part of all of this, we are now beginning to talk about revamping the website to make everyone's experience better, and giving us full featured capability on the mobile app. Stay tuned!

Can you sort the News entries by date? Newest at the top I would think.

Avian, I haven't been around much, but where can I download the app? I have an iPad mini I'd like to try it on. Thank you, Ted
