    In what may have seemed like an eternity to some, ESPN has finally released the official ESPN Radio App on the Android Market. This app will allow you to listen to live ESPN radio feeds from across the nation, listen to ESPN podcasts, and get SportsCenter updates.

    Unfortunately, the app is not free. You are now able to purchase it from the Market for $4.99. The folks over at Droid-Life have given the app a quick run-through, and so far are impressed by the UI and the score ticker.

    Is the ESPN Radio app worth five dollars, or should we stick to other radio streaming apps on the market (like Cherry Rplayer or RadioTime)? Let us know.

    :icon_evil: Man this is making me angry. I waited all this time and this is the problem. "can not verify purchase". I emailed them my receipt. What ever they are doing they need to stop. No other app has this issue.

    I have the devs ear and its getting an ear full from me. Im not cussing at him, but he is getting my anger full blow. I do not want to hear its google's fault. Out of all the google apps this is the first I dealt with that had this issue.

    Think being on 2.2 has anything to do with it?

    I purchased this App , SO EXCITED , and thought i could finally cancel my Sirius/xm service , since I use it mainly for ESPN radio , but I uninstalled and refunded , then re-bought the app , and am getting the same result , cannot verify purchase , and now I cant get my money back ? Is there a fix for this ? I know it's a new app , but people I know that have the ESPN app for the I-garbage don't have this problem . Any ideas (rescue squad perhaps) ?

    I'm getting the same error. Almost think that it isn't working with 2.2. I have other friends with stock droids that are having no problems. I'll post more if I find out for sure - in conversations with developer also.

    Jesus, it was just released! Give the dev a break and calm down a bit. I'm sure he will get it working. If you're using 2.2, you're not even allowed to complain. You're using a test build....

    SOme of us who buy an app like to know if it works and is worth it in the 24 hr period. Sooo I have no problem banging on the dev for a $5 app.

    Amen

    I gotta agree with the $5 charge for an app , THAT DON'T WORK . Whether or not you're using a test build or stock , it should work either way . I'm sure they will fix it , but it's frustrating . I have been waiting for this app since they announced it for the I-piece-o-**** .

    First thing this morning, app description said would not work with Motorola Droid. Later in the day, was changed to read that now worked with Droid. Obviously things are still being corrected.

    Is everyone who is having problems on 2.2?

    Any way just sent him alogcat so hopefully he can use that to get a fix on it.

    I'm going to hold off on purchasing this until the kinks gets worked out, but I do have one question.

    My car radio has an auxilary port and if I hook my droid up to it while using this, will it play through my car stereo.

    My local ESPN station went off the air about this time last year and nothing has stepped up to replace it :)icon_evil:).

    I miss my ESPN radio.

    Hi All,

    We are the developer of the ESPN Radio app for Android.

    First of all, thanks to PilotCharles747 for pointing us to this forum.

    We're glad there's so much excitement about the app's availability on Android. However, as some of you have mentioned, the app is a new release on this platform, so there are some kinks that we are still working through.

    If you have purchased the app and are having trouble, please feel free to email us at support@airkast.com, and we will help you (make sure your return address is valid and you're not spam blocking).

    We will post a progress update on this forum in a couple of days; however, please note that we will not be monitoring the forum regularly, so email us if you have a question.

    Thanks for your patience!
