Review by The Only Strich

Love the app, one flaw - I've been a supporter of SomaFM for years now. Listen to their stations, donate to keep the station afloat and have the app on every one of my devices. There's one very small thing that bothers me about the app that I doubt can really be fixed. The "pause" button isn't a pause at all. When you push the pause button to get up and go do something, the stream is not paused. This should basically be called a "mute" button, because that's all it really does. Since the stations are a live stream, you can't really pause the flow of the stream, so it just keeps going. So if you gotta get up to go do something and would like to come back and pick up right where you left off, you can't. Other than that, I absolutely give this app (on any platform) 5 stars. Thanks Rusty and SomaFM team.

bad music - cannot add other streams. The problem is, the built in streams are terrible if you like music.

The Greatest Ambient Electronic On The Web! - The app itself is great and SomaFM is amazing. You can listen for free or donate monthly - they’re entirely listener-supported. There are lots of options out there but if you desire a broad variety of commercial-free, ambient music able to satisfy any ear, pleae give Soma a try and help support what they’re doing.
