Re: dab radio

I doubt it very much. Reading about what's available tends to point  to low quality apps and extremely high data usage. Good luck and let us know if you find anything.

Re: dab radio

ok pal. thanks for the reply. will have to talk to o2 i think. being charged, via my data tarriff, for what is a free service can't be right. surely?

It might be a free app but to use the service itself will require a wifi or data connection

Re: dab radio

What free service are you referring to?

Re: dab radio

Lots of services are free but as jonsie says the data required to connect isn't unless you use a wifi hotspot.

Re: dab radio

There are but the OP stated he wanted to integrate on the S4 which isn't compatible without an app, none of which are true Dab or have a decent write up.
