Downloaded for my son's Kindle Fire, he has already had hours of pleasure from this app as it really does give access to lots of different stations. It is so good,I have also downloaded it for my 70 year old Mum to enjoy on hers. Would genuinely purchase this item, the fact it is free is a bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 29 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase
Fed up of listening to other peoples' music on the train, I moved into the 21st century and invested in some tiny headphones for my phone and kindle. This super app will show you and help you find a range of stations. You can instantly access your favourite stations without searching up and down the channels.
