  1. I blame David, he told me to post it up. LOL

    Looks pretty cool but Chris and David were wondering who still uses FLAC.

  2. @Doug Smith: you really need to learn to read what I circulate:) It’s been udpate to v1 now – that’s the news. So when it says “What’s in this version” the ‘this’ version is opposed to the ‘prior’ version that was a beta ;)

  3. is the search function in this for searching the music thats already on the device? because it wouldnt even find the songs that were in the featured free downloads section. other than the 20 or so songs available to download for free, i dont see why you wouldnt just get a standalone shoutcast app or something else similar because this doesnt seem to offer much above and beyond other apps out there.
