Using the N-Frequencies Internet Radio app…
Using the app is as simple as anything can get. Once you launch the app, you will be presented with an interface which looks like the below screenshot.
As you can see, you are immediately presented with a list of radio stations at the bottom of the screen. As you scroll towards the right side of the screen, you will be presented with more radio stations, under different language categories. This app also stores the recent radio stations that you have listened to under the Recent tab, and this way, you can listen to them without having to scroll through the gigantic list of radio stations.
There is an interesting feature in this app that I would like to talk about here. When you install the app, there are only a handful of radio stations. This is done to keep the app size small. But as soon as you launch the app, you will be presented with an option to update the app with more radio stations.
In the above screenshot, you can see a popup at the top-right corner. Let’s take a closer look at this.
Clicking on this updates the database and adds a plethora of radio stations. You can also manually update the database through the control bar of the app by clicking on the Update database button. (bringing up the control bar is the standard deal of right clicking an empty area of the app)
Once you click on any of the radio stations in the app, playback will start.
To stop playback, simply click on the icon of the radio station under the Now Playing tab. you can also adjust the volume through a volume slider right next to the radio station’s icon. The app also supports docked view for multitasking.
