Other Comments

Just like Radium for Mac, it has a very minimalistic interface compared to something like ooTunes. I haven't been able to browse the radio directory by nothing other than using the search box, but then I also have this issue with the Mac version. I also haven't seen any way of entering your own URL, sothe only way I was able to get new stations into it was by adding them to the mac app, then letting it sync through iCloud. Othern than that, it's a nice app.

I don’t use this app myself, but I did notice that the latest update lists VoiceOver support as the first item in the release notes. Can anybody confirm whether this is now fully accessible? What's New in Version 1.0.1 
  • VoiceOver support
  • Fixes and improvements to iCloud sync
  • New languages: Catalan, Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish
  • Improved lock-screen integration
  • Usability, stability, and performance improvements.

The buttons are clearly labeled but many of them take you to the same place or don't work with VO There are a lot of things a voiceover user still can't do with this app. It has the potential to be great but, definitely not there yet.

What's New in Version 1.1.3 • App icon hasn't changed • Shake to Shuffle (see Settings) • Sleep Timer (In-App Purchase. Why? Because the app is free, has no ads, and it costs us a (metric) tonne of money to keep all our stations up to date and release nifty updates for you!) • Fixed Wish List iCloud sync issue that affected some users • Fixed accessibility issue that caused some buttons to be incorrectly read as dimmed • Stability and performance improvements

You can sort favorites with VoiceOver with the double tap and hold gesture. After the ascending sound you can slide the favorite but there is no feedback telling you where the favorite will be dropped. This is tricky but it can be done if you have the stomach for it. CatPig Studios knows, request has been made for VoiceOver to speak while dragging. Otherwise if a fantastic accessible and stable app.

What's New in Version 1.1.6

• Between 9pm and 3am, Radium will show a button to activate the Sleep Timer in the gear-wheel (Settings) menu. How convenient!
• Fixed issue that would cause some stations to experience dropouts
• VoiceOver fixes and improvements

After 5 minutes, this just might become my favourite Radio tuning app. I like the inclusion of a very simple 3 band equalizer rather than all those noxious cheesy pre-sets for jazz, rock, babble, girgle, etc Maybe future versions will include an optional 10 band equalizer, perhaps with even some parametric option. I love the idea that one can actual establish equalization settings for specific stations. I find the playing screen a little untidy inasmuch as the buttons indicate that they are toggles but don'e in themselves indicate whether for example, the favourite setting is on or off and one has to explore near the bottom to learn which that button is set for, on or off. I am already liking this App more than tunin radio or Ootunes.

Still prefer ooTunes; KING FM Symphonic channel sounds much better on ooTunes; less aliasing. Also, as you say, the interface is kinda clunky. And not all found stations work.

I just installed this app today. It is extremely easy to use. VoiceOver reads everything! The search feature works very well, weather you put in call letters of a station, or do a search. Just one suggestion, it seems to work for me anyways on my iPhone 6, if I keep the location services on. I guess I accidently switched it off, and nothing was playing when I tapped on a station, but as soon as that was turned back on, all stations are playing, and playing very clearly. I give this app a "Big Thumbs Up! 5/*****!
