Top critical review
No user guide to help the non tech savvy.

Rather like anything Kindle related (including the Kindle itself), this come with absolutely no instructions for use, only tap icons which is a hit an miss affair as one doesn't know aforehand what icon does what function. Some are obvious such as 'play' and 'pause' but others are not so.
After much fiddling about I discovered a 'wake up' function. This I thought would be mighty useful for me as I like to hear the news at 1PM on Radio 4. I set the timer for 12:59 and clicked 'save' but it never worked. Odd I thought, so I did the same again and clicked 'save' I then opened up the drop down menu where the wake up function lies and the 'off' button was showing moments after I had set it to 'on'. So that particular side of things doesn't work.
Yes, one gets a plethora of 'stations' to choose from and the sound quality is ok given the size of speakers inside the Kindle, but the lack of any useful guide as to how to get the best from this app along with a non functioning wake up timer forces me to offer three stars for this.
