    Hi Wal,
    Nice work mate. Just tested it on my Nexus 7 on Jellybeen, FM seems to be working okay.

    If I may, if I had your programming tallents in Android I'd have a serious look at Micks Monkeyboard application the way he's implemented Monkeyboards original program. For using on the road, it's a perfect set up in my opinion.

    Kind regards
    Mark

    Hi mate. For your reference I'm located in Australia.

    The updated app isn't showing any RDS for me.
    Also, on my nexus 7 I've had to run the app with your 800x480 skin. In default, it displays oversized on the nexus screen - approx 40% oversize.

    Hello,
    you can make a custom skin with your Nexus resolution. Look into skin.ini.
    The Skin from my Homepage yesterday dosen't show RDS. Reload the Skin new.

    Cheers

    Hello Wal,

    nice that finally someone build an android app for the monkey. I'm mainly interested in the DAB version, but I cant find any DAB specific screenshots. Do you have the additional DAB info pages already implemented?
    I was just about to purchase a Lingo Ivy module directly from the manufacturer because it is not available anywhere, before I found out you made this app. The problem with the Ivy is the bad reception so I would prefer buing a monkey so I don't need to solder an antenna connector on the Ivy myself. Do you have any info on reception of the Monkey with your app in moving vehicles?

    Grüße und danke für die App

    Hey there,

    Wal, for your consideration - Dab isn't well implemented in this app - for Australia at least. With Dab I get RDS ( - now showing and what's coming up next) which is the only thing telling me what station I'm on. The 'station name' never updates. I start off with a particular station name (which doesn't match the actual station playing) and it never changes or refreshes. It's enough to make a sane man twitch. FM RDS refreshes much too slow imo.

    For your reference, I've tested this app on a nexus 7 running JB and an Odroid-x in both JB and Kitkat so I'm sure it's not just my imagination.

    Further more, if there were was a positive button response when programming a favorite button, a keypad option for entering an FM frequency and a pull-down DAB channel menu then this would be a useful program.
