We've been talking about it all year, and it is finally here! The Blast's new Android app! It starts with 8 streams, from 96k AAC on down to 16k. And yep, AAC+ streams are FINALLY supported in a Blast app! Just search for "The Blast" or "TheBlast.FM" in Google Play.
If your phone took the automatic update this morning, clear the cache on the app, and force stop, then open it and the 64k AAC+ stream will work.
Update: On our Samsung Galaxy S-4, the metadata display is very dim and hard to read. Hmm, maybe we need to put on Google Glasses to see it. We have also heard feedback about no metadata from Blasters. Odd, because metadata worked great in the test app from this new developer.
So, if you took the app update and feel stuck and want to know what is Blasting, we have a solution. We can email you the .apk for the old Blast Android app. It has 4 stream choices besides what is in the new 8 stream app and is a nice collector's item for you phone, anyway.
