    It does what it's meant to do. In some of the other reviews people complain about the adverts. They are missing the point....You are reviewing the app, not the station.

    Great but too many ads for the sister stations, you get 2 ads for each song played plus the usual ads, only get to hear a few songs in half an hour of listening

    Great station! Only problem I have is that I keep hearing the iPad competition ad and when I go to touch the screen to enter, no ad is being displayed
