Live streaming:
Like every app doing online live streaming, it is greatly affected by your connection (edge, 3g or wifi). If you have a poor connection, live streaming may fail. In the case of poor connection, please use a longer timeout time to allow the app to connect to the streaming server.

PS. So far I've received many requests to add new shows which are not available as podcast, therefore I can add those shows as requested. I am sorry for this and thanks very much for using this App.

    This app d/l your podcasrs fine but its listing are unintuitive to use. Everything needs manual action.technically it works but user wise I'm looking for something better.

    I download the podcasts I want to hear and use the playlist, I listen to podcasts while downloading and I realize that it does not drain my battery while listening to podcasts all night!

    I was very pleased by the player up until the last upgrade. I couldn't use earlier downloaded stuff anymore and since then I can't use my external memory. Now I Only use it to download and I use another play to listen. I'm sorry...
