In this version our 'Listen Again' feature moves to its own tab for easy use. We also include two AAC format channels for the first time on the Android version of the Caroline app.
For special broadcasts from our radio-ship, we can temporarily add a bespoke stream and programme schedule.
You can of course view our full programme schedule and set programme 'alarms'.
For listening, we offer a number of stream bitrates to suit most situations and a player with an 'Auto restart' system to assist in areas of poor signal. This is particularly handy when on the move. Find out what was happening on this day in past years on our 'This Day' page or browse our presenter's profiles if you wish.
Our app also helps to overcome the Android operating system's 'Doze' battery saving feature which can restrict internet access to apps after a while when the lock screen is on – even those playing or streaming audio. For this you need to accept a 'Playing' notification sent to your device.
Compatibility: Any version of Android 5.0+ (Lollipop or above). It will not run on any Android versions lower than 5, which are now obsolete. And it won't run on a device whose processor is based on the x86 instruction set.
Why is the app not free like other station's are?
The money from the app helps cover the cost of running our website and other costs.
Can I transfer the app to a new phone/device or do I have to buy it again?
You can transfer between devices without re-buying the app, but only if you bought the app from Google Play.
What devices can I install on?
Any Android device that Google Play will allow you to install on. Although our screen layout is most suited to handheld and medium sized tablets rather than anything larger.
