If there is anyone a fan of Digitally Imported as we are, I myself perfer to have a app 100% dedicated to these streams. And I'm a Premium subscriber to di.fm, there was no solution available for that to boot. Loading up the browser and opening the streams deemed to be too much work, especially if I was in the car. So I and another member decided that it was needed to create a dedicated app for doing this task. Now before you say there is already a app in the catalog for doing this, it is very limited and basic.
For those of you who have not heard of Digitally Imported (Digitally Imported - addictive electronic music), it is the largest electronic music streaming website on the internet (that I know of :-p). They feature live broadcasts and shows playing the latest and greatest of all the top global and emerging artists in this genre. If you enjoy this type of music it is a great resource for all types.
Our app Imported Radio features the following features at initial release;
Premium Login Options
AAC/PLS Stream Formats
High Bit-rate Stream Availability w/ Premium Access (256k/pls & 64k aac)*
Auto Play on App Open (handy for driving!).
Current Song Notifications
Dynamic Listing with No App Update Needed, ie; di.fm adds a station.
App Update Notification
Static Total Listeners/Current Track Information for all Stations
with Many More Features to come.
This app will be featured initially as a very-open closed beta, just ask and you shall receive. We want to be sure it is functional enough for the common user before making 100% public. And at this time will remain free till further notice.

1. The top fader below the header sometimes does not disappear properly and stays on, a scene change or a scroll down and up seems to fix it. Not sure of the cause. Suggestions welcome.
0.3.4: Initial Release
*It is to note that using 256k streaming takes up a considerable amount of bandwidth and in my testing was not very reliable over the air. It worked 50% of the time, we're welcome to ideas and testing responses Never-the-less, the option is available.
