Requesting updated appearance of the LIVE365 app. Would like the option to display or not display album cover image. When album cover IS displayed, it should be a square, not a circle.
Also, due to incorrect images being displayed in the app, I'd like the ability to manually upload my own cover art if I have no option to turn cover display off. Frequent incorrect cover images and even the blank, gray circle makes for a shoddy, unprofessional appearance.
I endeavor to offer, to the best of my ability, a top professional/commercial appeal to my listening audience with my internet radio station - both in what they hear and what they SEE.
i would love to see the app be dynamic. having a fixed size is limiting on websites.
Yes, please make album cover image square shaped instead of the current round shape.

I would recommend going beyond this suggestion for the app. LIVE365 should allow us to use OUR tags (for me, they are correct) rather than the sometimes incorrect displays of album names and cover art on both the app and web site.
Another benefit to broadcasters having at least SOME control over album art display in the app and web player is the option/ability to upload a logo, icon, or pic when airing non-music content. For example, I air a news brief each hour and would like the news icon displayed. I also air some talk programming and would like the show's icon/logo displayed. Or even when a live DJ is on, display his/her pic. It sure beats the blank circle and would enhance the station's professional appearance.
we just need that cover art bug fixed, and a square cover image. i have cover art for all my music. and its frustrating when the wrong cover art is displayed. the bug displays cover art for the next song not the current.
Also if possible adding a bio of the artist as featured on the lastFM.com app

Perhaps adding a method for chatting with the DJ on the air would be great! More listener interaction via the player would be great!
I would love to see the widget revamped completely. It is so bulky and visually unappealing. I would recommend something much smaller and streamlined and as one user suggested, dynamic. The fixed size is horrible for web masters/designers.....just my opinion.
Just needs a whole new look and the public facing web site too.
When a song starts to play and it can find the alburn art It uses a black and white music note Icon. Change that so it will use the station Icon. It will be more colorful and looks more professional.
As an "addicted" listener I wish you would incorporate a "favorite station" saving feature on the website just like on the Android app. I' find myself searching for my favorites whenever I go onto the website where they're right there on my phone!

"Using the Station Icon for the music Icon" (suggested by Rick on 2021-06-01), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Our terrestrial station recently joined Live 365. We use the HTML5 player on our web site and have implemented the app in the App Stores. We encountered a problem almost immediately with metadata which is inconsistent and problematic between the HTML5 player and the Live365 apps. The HTML5 player appears to be picking up the artwork from our Live365 storage but the app is not. The latter causes a jarring and unprofessional display. For our syndicated/live shows, I would think that picking up the name from an image file (e.g. "Roots of Rock - Brother MJ.png" in our Live365 storage would be cleaner and consistent and would not require a 'stub' MP3 that is only transporting the image metadata.
We have a gospel music radio station that when certain songs play it is displaying the wrong album art. Can you please let us have some sort of control over the album art that we upload and play on Android and iOS apps?
