Absolute Radio is a UK based radio station that plays music in a variety of genres mainly segmented according to a decade such as the 80’s, 90’s, ect. The music is mainly mainstream and is something that will probably cater for most tastes. So when the app popped up on the Samsung Apps page, I thought it was time to give it a road test! Now before doing this, I hadn’t heard of the radio station so like most people, I was expecting a radio streaming portal that links to numerous internet radio stations….but oh was I wrong!

The app takes you into the main screen from the moment you launch it and the music comes on straight away. I was awoken by a bit of U2 doing their stuff! Overall, I liked the look of the interface as basic as it was. Each track that is being played is displayed in the main screen with an image of the musician/band and it was very easy to change between decades – a feature that is quite nice in reality.

This really is an app for people that enjoy the radio station and the types of music they play. It’s not something that is groundbreaking, but it was reliable, easy to use, the sound quality was good and its free! Good try Absolute Radio and to make this more engaging I think you should add more features such as videos, web cams from the studio and anything else that promotes your brand/content!
