Hi guys, If you update to Version 1.7 of this app, then it gets inaccessible, for me, at least. Can someone help, if someone has updated the app?

Hello, I can't see the list of Genres. If I open the app, there are the Genres-tab, the history-tab and the Settings-tab. Genres-tab is selected. If i try to search for keywords in the search field, and click search, there is no results. Can you help me out? Thanks.

Well, I sure like to help out if I can. So as you have mentioned. I selected the Genre tab. This brings up all sort of Genre to select from. At the top of this page. We have the Search option. So I double tap on this. So I tried something easy like Elvis. Now double tap on the Search button. I get quite a bit of Elvis related channels. I am using it on an iPhone 5 with IOS 6.1.4. I have tried several other Artist and and have no issues. What device are you using and let me know what you get if your Search for Elvis.

Hi anonymouse, I am using an iphone 4 with ios 6.1.3 If i open the app, it says geres-heading, then there is the search field and if i flick to the right, there is empty list. No Genres Show up if i search for anything. Do i maybe have to restore my device or is this app not compatible with iphone 4 anymore?

Downloaded the ap yesterday and after playing with it, I have found a problem and it seems to be fairly consistent. After skipping through songs, the ap seems to crash and it always seems to happen when one of the promo starts to play. for example, as one is skipping songs, a beginning of the accuradio promo is heard and it cuts off after about a second or two and the ap completely crashes. Am I doing anything wrong?

I have not had prior versions to this one of this app, but what I'm finding is that after I play one station, when I go to play another one, the app crashes and VoiceOver is essentially rendered useless until I lock my screen. Is anyone else noticeing this behavior?

Hi, if you still use accuradio, dont update to 2.0.6. You can't rate Songs, and the Interface has become more inaccessible. I wrote to the Support, but they didn't respond to my Topic. I even mentioned that blind People use voiceover. it might help if we all could send mails to the developer of the app to make it accessible again.

Since updating, the audio quality of the music has also deteriorated across all stations. Is there anyway to downgrade back? I've stopped using it for this reason and primarily sticking to pandora and iTunes radio.

Submitted by Warcat on Monday, March 24, 2014

Hi, if you have a older Version of accuradio in your itunes library, you can delete the new Version and install the old Version on the iphone.

Hi, I have received a mail from the app developer of accuradio: Mail from Michael Schmidt: Hi, thanks for writing. I apologize that our recent update has become less accessible to you - it certainly was not our intention! I'm working on an update to our iOS app right now that corrects these issues. I'll be sure to let you know when the update is available. If after that there are still some existing accessibility issues, please let us know and we'll continue to address them. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and I apologize again for the problems. We appreciate your support! end of mail.

Hello Mathap, Thanks for the update. It does appear to be a bit harder to use than it was before. Couldn't tell at times if there wasn't an overlay issue going on. If use the swiping alone. I would have problems. If I hunt and touch a certain part of the screen. I could then activate in what I wanted. Otherwise, you just couldn't do it. So thanks for the heads up. I will make the correct changes to reflect there are some new problems. Thanks!
