    Hi – I have downloaded Drool Radio, and while it is a fantastic application, every time I try to play P4 it seems to have a lot of buffering problems and then hangs and causes my whole iPhone to hang. I should mention that I am in India, so maybe that has something to do with it, but funnily enough when I have played any of the UK radio stations it seems to work just fine. Do you have any idea why this happens? The main reason I downloaded it was to listen to Norwegian radio, especially P4!!

    Hi Alison.

    I’m not involved in the development of Drool Radio, but I know the developers, so I’ll forward your concerns.

    Have you tried any of the other Norwegian radio stations (Radio Norge or NRK P1) ? P4 is known to have a saturated audio stream.

      Sorry, for v1.0 you’ll have to be in Norway. v1.1 will be available in the UK. It should be out soon (I’ll update this blog entry when it’s available)
