Nice app, shame about the last update The last update functions largely correctly, but changing the location of the playback controls has reduced the usability of this app (which wasn't great to begin with). Another major problem is that the last update has doubled the rate of battery discharge while streaming. Blech.

Laura Love this app, have never had a issue with it in any of its incarnations. Just wish it didn't chew through mobile data so quick. But all radio apps do that so it's not a specific case against the ABC app!
