Other Comments: 

The Jango Radio is quite interesting to use. This is something you should give a look at if you are in to things like Pandora and AccuRadio.

I had looked at this app before and at that time it was very poorly labeled and not easy to use. Now as of their latest release. They have completely turned things around.

It is now very accessible. From everything I have looked at appears to work great.

There is only one minor glitch that I could find. When you are in the player mode. There is a Menu button that is located at the top right corner. If you double tap on this. You will see the information about the Artist that is currently playing. Follow this are three buttons. The first and the second are labeled the same. They are labeled as Track Information. The last button is the Cancel button.

The first Track Information button appears to be a way to view the list of Artist's that are in the given Custom Radio Station you are in. Very similiar to AcceRadio is that from this list of Artist. You can now either Add/Remove them from your list. Now the other Track Information button. I'm not certain. It just appears to return you to a Track Information with information pertaining to that Artist.

Other than that. I almost have to say that it definetely is worth looking at. It is an overlooked app. So far I do like this better than Pandroa.

Let me know what you think of it?
