Mostly accessible to use.
This once was a pretty accessible app to use. For the most part it still is until you want to do a few things. For one on the Recent tab. To remove the Recent stations. You must find the Edit button. Which is easy to find but when one tap on this. It still says Edit. So it is like nothing has changed. However, when you now go to a particular station. You can now flick up to Remove it.
The other quirks are with in the Now Playing page. You will find an unlabeled button which seems to do the same thing as you tap on the Track Information which is found further down this page. The Track Information section is not very accessible at all. However, you hardly if at all would want to go in to this area.
The sound quality is alright. Even when set to the Highest quality. The quality still seems a bit low. Although, it almost makes it up when you will notice that you can skip a lot of songs without having a cap or an ads to listen.

The latest update *version 2.0) has improved accessibility.
I was able to create and gine tune a custom station, as VoiceOver now reads the artists list.
However, button labelling is still bad. For example, on the player screen the previous button is labelled 'cancel', the play/pause button is labelled 'edit', and the next button is labelled 'save'.
When fine-tuning a station each artist in the list has 2 buttons next to it: 'lst addbttn' and 'lst circleremovebtn'. The first of these will increase the frequency the artist is played, the second button will remove the artist from the station.
If you can tolerate these problems, the app is usable with VoiceOver.
I just found this app today and I'm in love. Have tried others such as Pandora, Acuradio, etc., and I think I've just found my favorite app in Jango Mobile. I absolutely love the ability to have the unlimited skips. Usually I would expect this luxury in something that I've paid for, but not so in this lovely little gem. The only thing I can't figure out is how to purchase a song from iTunes. Any help is appreciated.
This app looks cool, but I wanted to ask a few things about it. First, one of the things I love about Pandora is that I can shuffle my stations, since I often don't really know exactly what I want to listen to. Second, is there a sleep timer? Third, is the selection just as good as Pandora's?
Thanks in advance for the info! :)
To answer some of the questions asked.
First, No I have not seen a way to purchase a song from iTunes. Which is very unusual as I'd imagine like most other radio apps such as this one. It does offer a way to purchase them. However, as there are some missing elements. I wonder if we just can't see them. At this point I have not seen a way to do it.
Second, yes there is a sleep timer with in the app. Although it isn't where you think you would find it. You have to tap on the Settings at the bottom right corner. Find the Sleep Timer and set it up that way. You would think it would be in the Now Playing area but it is not.
Thirdly, no there are no option for you to choose to shuffle from a variety of stations. In Jingo you only get one station that can be used at a time.
Lastly, are the playlist better than Pandora? That is a tough question. They do play different artist from each other for sure. Although, the ability to skip many artist at a time is very nice. They both offer pros and cons. I think in the end Pandora offer more in the way of functionality and being able to purchase Premium subscription for better sound quality.
Remember that this app is FREE to download and use. So you can always give it a try and decide for yourself. :)
I know that you can purchase songs via iTunes or Amazon because their website indicates this fact. But, I think that you are right, in that, VO just can't see these purchase options. One of the things I like best, beyond the awesome music selections, is the fact that you have the unlimited skips, which was completely unexpected in a free app.
For quite some time, logging into Jango Radio through Facebook has been impossible. Although I can type in my phone number or email, the password editfield never becomes available when I double-tap it.
