    Best player ever (for techies)! Suggestions for improvement: -- let us upload artwork for stations or url for image --add tabs so users can organize music in genres Otherwise, this app is a dream come true. Ads are a thing of the past (I hope).

    The only issue I've had is that when I disconnect from BT car stereo, it leaves the live stream paused and It probably should start as a live connection when I reconnect unless I override that.

    Simply does the intended task without any issue. Just like a good purpose built program should.

    Apparently streaming .pls files / shoutcast radios on android is a tuff task, but serve stream plays streams great and has some nice added features.

    A good reliable app. Doesn't crash and doesn't kill my battery too much. Occasionally it just doesn't want to play a station its played before for hours on end.
