1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So title says what I like and the best app I have found so far is TuneIn Radio. The problem I have is that some of my favorite statilns locally "streem live" and are not suported in this app. I can listen on the web in Dolphin, but if I hit rhe home key and turn off the screen, I loose the feed.

    My sulution so far us to get the station a'plaging hit the home key and then go to almost 0 screen brightness. Then go back into the browser.

    Anyone know how I could be in a browser and listen to a feed with the acreen off? Ya know the screen eats battery.

    I don't know that app you are using, so my answer will be more generic. Many stations are available via shoutcast streaming.A shoutcast app will run in the background unlike a browser. Finding a shoutcast is done a few ways.

    1. The shoutcast player you use may have your desired station listed in it's directory/program list
    2. If your desired station is broadcasting in shoutcast via the browser, you could grab the file that launches that stream and use it to launch a stream from a shoutcast player.

    I am currently using the retro radio app for this, primarily for sports radio 660AM in NYC

    Thanks. I found an app Shoutcast that has at least one of the stations on it and iheart that has several others. So between the three I can now listen w/o earing battery with the screen on.
