With Replaio, great music and radio journalism are always right by your side. Wherever you are, you can listen to music, sports coverage, the latest news, and all your favorite programs.
Modern, intuitive, attractive Material Design interface with handy tabs
When creating Replaio, we strived to combine the most interesting features with a convenient and aesthetically pleasing interface. The Material Design interface, with its innovative new tabs, ensures quick and easy access to all features, no matter if you’re listening to the radio at home or in your car. Want to tune in to your favorite station? Just tap the appropriate tab (always visible on the screen) and turn on the radio using large, convenient buttons. You can tap again to see the player with album art. Doesn’t that sound cool? Try it out!
Stable listening free from disruptions
Replaio is a player designed with stability in mind. We want you to be able to listen to your favorite radio station immediately after tuning in, without disruptions or constant buffering – even with a slow Internet connection. Replaio allows you to customize buffer length within a range of 1 to 30 seconds. We are currently working on other features to improve the stability of your listening experience – we will release them soon.
Convenient access to a catalog of more than 30,000 radio stations around the world
You can find stations playing pop, rock, hip hop, electronic, jazz, classical, country, blues, even Christmas music. The app allows you to search for them by country or network (e.g. SomaFM). You can also access news and sports channels. Can’t decide? Try the “Random” feature – we’ll pick a station for you! Of course, you can also search for stations by name. If the station you want is not in our catalog yet, tap the “Add station” button and enter its name – if it’s available, we’ll add it to the catalog within 24 hours!
Like the song you’re currently listening to? Got access to Spotify? Great! Now you can quickly add it to your Spotify playlist and listen to it whenever you want!

ABOUT THE PERMISSION
“…Can observe the text you type and actions you do…”
Alas! It’s threatening isn’t it? Torchie needs permission to listen to your physical hardware (volume Button) Key presses only.
What if your phone has a physical hardware Keyboard phone? Torchie can listen to text – keys you type right? So, Android shows this. But, recent Android phones (except Blackberry Priv) does not have a physical hardware Keyboard (for typing) with only three hardware physical keys i.e. one power button and two volume buttons. Actually, It is Android’s flaw showing this buggy permission to you!
Also, Torchie does not have ‘Internet Permission’. So it’s impossible to send anything to anyone!
Torchie’s source code is available here https://github.com/anselm94/Torchie-Android. You can go through every line of code!
