Hi AccuRadio,

First off, I love your app on my iphone. It is my only music source at home and on the road. I really like the 5 star radio playlist.

That brings me to my suggestion. I have over 200 songs in my 5 star playlist, but every time I start the application I hear the same 10 -15 songs again and again. As a programmer I have run into this situation before in my own work. Please have your developers look at the randomization of the songs, particularly 'salting' the randomization properly. This will definitely make your apps better.

Have a great day!

    Sorry, the term is not 'salted', it is 'seeded'. Salted relates to randomization in cryptography.

    This discussion is a great starting place:
