What's New in Version 3.8
New In This Version
• We've fixed some bugs to improve your TuneIn experience
Nothing in terms of Voice Over accessibility have been resolved or improved. So this has now been removed from my device. For being a $6.99 purchase. I would recommend that you take alook at the ooTunes as an alternative solution. As they have a much better record of being accessible.
What's New in Version 5.0
-We’ve redesigned and optimized TuneIn Radio Pro for iOS 7
-We've added hundreds of live college basketball games, including every Pac-12 game
-We’ve fixed bugs which were causing playback or stream errors for some listeners
-We’ve fixed a bug which was causing issues when swiping up on the Now Playing screen to see Recommendations and Recents
The TuneIn Radio developers have decided to reduce the price from being $6.99 US now to a $1.99 US purchase. However, with this new version comes along with a brand new Display Ad! Which sadly just baffles me if one is going to pay for something you would think it would be Ad Free?
What's New in Version 5.0.1
-We recently reduced the price of TuneIn Radio Pro because it now has display ads. Anyone who purchased TuneIn Radio Pro prior to version 5.0 will still be able to use it without display ads.
-This version fixes a bug that caused a pre-roll audio ad to play for listeners who purchased TuneIn Radio Pro prior to version 5.0.
Version 6.0 of TuneIn Radio Pro was posted today. Here's a list of what's new from the App store, followed by my comments:
- Updated look and feel
- TuneIn suggests stations, shows and categories to follow based on your interests
- Your past favorites are now the stations/shows you are following. You can find this in your Profile tab.
- Your personalized feed brings you live updates from the stations, shows and people you follow
- Use the Explore page to discover great new stations and shows to follow
- The TuneIn Echo lets you share what you’re listening to with your friends and followers
- Create your own profile so that your friends can follow you and what you are following on TuneIn
This new version seems fairly accessible, at least when it comes to selecting a station from what used to be the Favorites screen. Unfortunately, none of the stations I've tried will play, even after a few minutes of waiting. Thinking I had to press a Play button or something, I searched the screen, but so far haven't found anything. The Options screen where you could choose an alternative stream also appears to be missing.
I don't know if there's something I have to do to get stations to play, but at the moment, I wouldn't recommend getting this update.
Seems like I haven't been the only one having the same issue. Kelly's right people. You may want to avoid the update. On the other hand, if anyone figures out what's up, please let us know. Thanks.
I had another look at the app awhile ago, and think I figured out how to get stations to play. After you select a station from your Favorites, which is what I did, you have to double-tap on the station's slogan, or possibly a song title. In any case, a "now playing "screen should appear as the station plays, with a button to close it near the top. When the button is pressed, the station will continue to play in the background.
Hope this helps.
If you want to keep using this app do not update to the latest version, as I have not been able to get any of my favorite stations to play. This is pathetic on the developers part as they have been aware of VoiceOver for a very long time. What a joke, if I wanted to follow a radio station on Twitter I would do so using Twitter, now when you click on a station instead of playing you are taken to the stations twitter page. This app used to be great, but now it is worthless, and considering I paid for it, it will quickly be making its way off my iPhone as I believe there is another radio app that is much more accessible.
Still probably getting booted from my phone. To get a station to play from your favorites, click on it which takes you to the annoying Twitter page. Triple click VO off, tap the screen and the station will start playing you can then toggle VO back on with a triple click. At least my stations will play but this is still idiotic and not something I would expect from a developer that is well aware of VO
So its not as inaccessible as everyone thinks.
The favorites tab has been changed to profile. Double tap on the profile tab. Select whatever favorite station you have saved. Using voiceover going from the top swiping right, a user will hear back, the now plaing button, the name of the station, a description, page 1 of 2, broadcasts which is selected, followers butto, following button which is selected.
Now here is where it matters. After Following button which is selected, swipe right and you will hear Stations. Swipe right again and you will again hear the title of the station. Swipe right again and you will hear what is playing on that station. Then you can swipe right and hearprograms. In between stations and programs, you can double tap either the station title or the current playing song or program. Once you double tap, you will hear the page change and after a few seconds, the station will play.
Solved. It works completely with no fail.
For example, I live in New York. One of the stations I have favorite is 98.7 Espn New York. After selecting it from the profile tab (Remember, changed to profile from favorite tab), I will hear the following:
Back button, Now playing button, ESPN New York, Sports Talk, Page 1 of 2, Selected (Broadcasts button), Followers Button, Selected (Following Button), Stations, ESPN New York, You Know Us we know sports, Programs. I can either double tap ESPN New York or You Know US We Know Sports between the Stations and Programs. Once double Tapped, the station will play after loading for a few seconds.
Back, Now Playing Button, 1010 Wins, Local News, Page 1 of 2, Selected (Broadcasts Button), Followers Button, Selected (Following Button, Stations, 1010 Wins, All News all the time, programs. I can double tap either 1010 wins or All news all the time in between stations and programs and it will play the station.
Please note that sometimes, it will go stations, station title, description or song title, and then home tab. This does not change anything except now you can tap either blah blah in between stations and home tab.
Second note. I went to the home tab and signed up and created a profile. That was my choice and I don't think you need to do so. My instructions will still work. However, it couldn't hurt to create the profile and then go to the profile tab and get your favorite station.
This is not convenient. It adds a second step to the old method which was going to favorites and tapping the station and listening. Now you have to do the added step of finding the section you can double tap on. But it does work without fail and it isn't inaccessible like everyone is saying.
Please contact Tunein Radio and let them know about the problem of adding the second step. Maybe they can add a setting where a user can bypass the screen and always have their station play after tapping on it.
If my instructions were not clear, please let me know and I will attempt to be more concise.
If you like, please give me an example of a station you have favorite. let me know how to search for it. If you like, I will provide instructions on how to play that station using a description of what you will hear once the station is double tapped and swping right from back, now playing button, etc.
Hi! When I first updated to version 6.0 of TuneIn Radio Pro I also thought it was impossible to get stations to play, but since then I have done some experimenting and found two methods of doing so: these work for stations in my favourites, or under Following in the Profile tab in this new version. The first is the method described above, where you double-tap the name of the station in the list in your Profile tab, then double-tap the name again on the next screen to get the Now Playing screen to open. The other is using the Home tab, and needs less steps: the Home tab, in which you can see what is currently being broadcast on the stations in your favourites, takes a while to refresh, but when it does, swipe or scroll till you find the station you want, then swipe to the Play button and double-tap that, then the Now Pklaying screen will open as before. For those who want options, I've seen an Options button on the Now Playing screen, but I haven't double-tapped it to explore the options, as I don't use them myself.
Your correct. It is not inaccessible. The accessibility of this particular version is nice. That said, I don't like the extra step of having to tap somewhere else in the window to get the station to play. Thank you for the tip though.
I've gotten it to work, but I'm sorry guys it's just not very intuitive. If I double-tap a station's name with VoiceOver enabled I expect to hear that station just start playing, I shouldn't have to tap on it's name twice. I know they're aware of what VoiceOver is, but I don't think accessibility with VoiceOver is a priority. I've got the app and can make it work, but it's clunky.
Yeah Toonhead, I agree. As a result, I have reverted back to the previous version.
It might be a good idea to actually write your issues directly to Tunein radio instead of bouncing complaints back-and-forth to one another Everybody wanted a solution to actually make the stations work and multiple people provided solutions Now instead of saying you did this or you're going to revert or delete the program, How about writing to developer instead of complaining? If at least 5 to 10 of you write the same thing, the developer start to take notice. if 20, 30, 50, hundred right, the developer will possibly take notice and make changes. This website is meant to gain more information. Not To repeatedly Voice issues or complaints The same time you have spent writing your messages out could have been used to send messages to the developer directly
