Inspiration

The Rookery Radio app was inspired from not having an android app aside from Tunein Radio.

What it does

This app streams music from an Icecast2 server, and also streams the Meta Data from the server as well.

How I built it

The bulk of our core code came fron the Hive365 Android app Source code on Github, from there we took out functions that were irrelevant for what Rookery Radio needs.

Challenges I ran into

The biggest challenges we ran into was getting the app to read the Meta Data from our server. And properly display it.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I am very proud that I was finally able to get the Meta Data working, since it was the problem we had to deal with since the beginning.

What I learned

Because of this project, I now have a deeper insight into Java, JSONObjects, XML, and Working with Android Studio.

What's next for Rookery Radio Android App

I plan to publish this app on The Play Store for any to use and Listen to Rookery Radio on their android device as they please, while I keep up on minor bug updates.
