    Thumbs up Android Phone Users ("Google" phones)

    For those of you who have Android phones and want to listen to Afterhours.fm, give this a shot.

    I haven't had time to make anything specific as far as an AH player, so I've resorted to using the free version of StreamFurious to listen to AH.fm while I'm in my car, at lunch, or whatever.

    Search the Android Market for StreamFurious - currently, there are two versions; StreamFurious and StreamFurious Pro. (The Pro version is $5.99 (USD) and has a few features that aren't needed to listen to the current AH stream, so you really don't need it.)

    Anyway, once installed on your phone, open it up, hit the menu button on your phone (there is not a soft menu button) then choose "More Stations" and pick the Shoutcast.com option. Once Shoutcast loads, search for "ah.fm" -- afterhours.fm didn't yield any results for me.

    The results for "ah.fm" should have the same options available for Winamp on AH.fm... just pick your bitrate and it will start playing.

    --
    If anyone knows of a better FREE PLS player, by all means, plug it here so we can all benefit from it. Meanwhile, when I get time (yeah, right...) I'm hoping to be able to write a quick app that is specific to the AH.fm streams so StreamFurious/Shoutcast won't be needed... we'll see, anyway.

    Cheers

    BTW, you're missing out if you have any smart phone that is not sporting Android.

    .::UPDATE::.

    DroidLive and DroidLive Lite do the same thing as the above, and IMHO is a lot better. This app actually brought me to the decision to NOT make a specific app for the AH.fm. :/

    If you look for "Antropia" on the android market and click on "Radio" tab and type in Afterhours.fm it will show up.. Just another option for Android phone users.

    Cheers!

    Cheers fernie

    Dan-- You'll love it. I came from a line of several Windows Mobile phones, and an iPhone somewhere between all of them... Android by far has my heart.

    If you have a CHOICE, Android is the way to go.

    I own a Samsung Galaxy and sadly, right now I can't recommend it anymore.
    Look for a phone developer / network - combo which likely supports their devices in the future (you really don't want an outdated Android version on your device, when all around you they are upgraded OTA or otherwise, for free)

    Other than that, I had a good past with SonyEricsson (P900/990...) and would probably look at their upcoming Xperia. If you need a keyboard it's not for you though.
    I found out that typing on that softkeyboard isn't really my deal, i need a hard one. But I heard Android 2.0 improved on that.
    My next device will certainly feature a real keyboard.

    I'm not tempted to go check right now, Google is your friend
    But I personally like the open-ness of an Platform better vs. a single Product, and am glad I can easily port my Apps and Settings over to another device when needed but retain the environment. - Anyway hardware wise they should be at least up to par by now

    Also I'll shortly be giving my favorite linux distro a shot on that ARM processor

    Be prepared though, that not all Android Market Apps always work perfectly on your device - they are still too different implementation-wise (keyboard vs no keyboard for example)

    P.S.> Also using StreamFurrious, but mostly the Network is too bad to support even the 96k AH.fm stream and my data package is not unlimited (maybe there could be a lower 32k? stream)

    P.P.S
    Happy new year 2010

    thank you for your reply pax. the idea of andriod is really clicking on my mind, but also, I am very selective when it comes to the hardware/physical specs. and thus make it harder to decided wehter to go for iphone (superior hardware) or andriod operated phone.

    Happy new year

    sorry, Dan
    StreamFurious (and many other players) still don't support AAC.


    Wailo: the iPhone's processor is a ~620MHz ARM vs the mostly used 528MHz Qualcomm ARM chip in android's (the SE Xperia has presumably a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon) , but the Storage on my Samsung Galaxy is 8GB internal memory + up to 32GB on a microSDHC where on a iPhone it's only internal and not changeable - that differs between android devices of course.

    The other sensors are afaik mostly the same as on the iPhone (motion, agps, compass) but newer devices are topping even that.

    What I love the most is the upcoming OpenGL ES 3D apps, i've seen a Android game with 3D support already - Mystique (check it out whoever can) it's really slick

    now off to teh partay

    The great thing about Android powered phones is that you dont have to worry so much about company developpers. You don't have to wait for the company to create apps (ie: Proprietary Samsung, Nokia, etc). Android is open source.

    Android phones will all be able to handle the same apps (given the hardware is capable..but they dont differ TOO much)
