Audio Streamer

This app has primarily been designed to play streaming audio, aimed at those who listen to on line radio. The ultimate goal for this project would be an app with which you can store you favourite on line radio stations and switch between them like the standard FM radio apps that come with most smart phones. I own a HTC Desire HD but it has no FM radio unlike my last few phones.

Supported formats:
This app uses the built in MediaPlayer class within the Android OS so these formats should all be sorted straight out of the box. 

Its a pretty basic app, stores up to six stations (could be more, I'm just being lazy with the UI). The longest playack  I have had yet is was four hours whilst cleaning the house then my battery hit the wifi threshold and turned my wifi off, but I'm happy with that test :)
