Great Job Fred - I downloaded the RIF app right away and showed it around here. It even works reasonably well on the slower EDGE network.

1 suggestion for future versions. Enable the app to run in the background so I can still check e-mail and use other apps on my phone while the radio is on.

Rusty at SomaFM has figured out how to do this with his web radio channels. www.soma.fm

Keep up the great work!

Maybe Mel should just license your app. I'm serious (no pun intended) - at this point, isn't he spending much needed cash trying to reinvent the pencil?


Your "stationalized" app is amazing, and a GREAT EXAMPLE of how stations can adapt to changing technology and stay relevant in the changing marketplace. bravo!
