  • How to switch 12/24 hour format ?

    Use your mobile phone settings.
    By default is 24h format, if you have any troubles, try to turn on/off 24h format.
  • Can I use my music from the memory card instead of the internet stream?

    Yes, you can. But now is supported only 1 file playable by Android Player. To the stream property in Radio List just put your path to the music file e.g. /sdcard/Music/MySong.mp3
    The prefix /sdcard/ is neccessary (can be different on each device, but I think this value will be same for 99% of devices). Support for playlist will be probably in future versions.
  • What for is Default player property in alarm defintion ?

    It's property where you can define type of the audio player. Default Android player doesn't support AAC format in Android 2.2. Detail table about formats is here. Which player is used is detected by stream URL, but sometimes it will be neccessary to set format by yourself.

  • Why sometimes take so long to start radio stream ?

    It depends on your internet connection. If you have a good one, usually radio starts in 5seconds. If there is a problem it can take more than 30seconds. Don't worry, if radio doesn't start in 1 minute, a local ringtone will start.
