It has been a while since the last update but here is some good news!

Windows App update

We have been working hard on the Windows app update and we’re very close to a release, many things have been changed and new things added. First of all we have changed the core of the app to support the latest Windows version and this includes the new background audio process. This makes the code much smaller and easier to maintain and gives some speed improvements to the app itself. However after testing this on Windows mobile I’ve come to the conclusion that this update won’t be released for Windows phones.  Sometimes the background audio stops playing on phones even though Microsoft advices to use this new method so our phone users have to use the current version until it’s more stable.

The coming update includes podcasts, streaming through DLNA, synchronizing your favorites and current audio and much more. A full list will be available when the update hits the App store!

Moderators

The last couple of weeks we’ve been improving the moderator section, we can now approve new mods on a daily basis. We have more than 150 mods worldwide but somehow the reported radio list gets bigger so I’m going to write a guide on how to fix and add new radio stations.

Radio stations

The one thing that doesn’t feel right is the fact that our great app only has 5700 radio stations. So I’ve been creating a massive list of stations to add and slowly been adding them since yesterday. There are now more than 12.000 radio stations available worldwide and by the end of the week it will be at least 20.000!
