Limitations:- Android 4.x can only support up to 16bit/48kHz audio. Android 5.0+ allows higher resolution formats.- Only works with ShoutCast and plain http internet streams, which accounts for the majorityof streams. Will not work with MMS and MMSH streams, which are mainly used for WMA audio.- Apps like Rhapsody (and possibly Spotify) will not work with this app because Logitech restrictsthem to hardware players only. I've been told that paid Pandora should work.- Any stream that requires resampling by the app may not work well on slower devices. - The quality of synchronized playback can vary a lot depending on the device.It works well on a Galaxy Nexus, but it won't be perfect and will need to be adjusted in your serversettings. Android 5.0+ recommended for synchronized playback.
