So I gave the debut OFM app a go, and for most part, luckily, it works as advertised.
Once you’ve completed download and/or update of the app you’re pretty much set to go – push start to the ‘open app’ button and brace your ears. The app is straight forward, on opening it at first it pops up a tutorial screen which lets you in on all the features found inside as well as the entry form to the competition. I am holding thumbs. The first tab you see on the left slide menu is, au naturel, the Show Lineup, Music, Media followed by Events. While the right hand side is reserved for making direct calls to the station (call charges apply) and listening live.

From there, the Ofm app turns into a more traditional radio streaming experience. The listen live tab serves up a curated live feed of the current DJ, song playing and playlists. Then there is also the personalization and interaction capabilities that I love. Which allows you to directly send the DJs and presenters your messages and comments. I have noticed the app tends to crash when using it on older Android versions, those devices that don’t have built-in radio. But despite that it is still a compelling product. Its free to download on the Google Play and App Stores.
