XiiaLive™ is an extremely feature rich, Shoutcast powered internet radio player. Shoutcast is the online radio service from Nullsoft, the company best known for developing the original Winamp. XiiaLive plays almost every sound format you can think of, and is highly customizable.
It lets you add your own stations or explore the 50,000+ radio stations it comes with. I mostly had to do the first thing; add my own stations with .pls files, cause most of my favorites were not among those 50.000+. Saved as favorites you wont have to add them every time and this enables you to switch from station to station. You can also backup and restore your favorites and settings. It plays almost every sound format (and playlist) I have thrown at it, and that is quite remarkable. Sound quality (also thanks to its equalizer) and the stability of streams are great, no complaints there. The user interface has nice big buttons, is not cluttered at all and has 2 themes; a light and a dark one. After using it for several years now, almost on a daily basis, it has become my number one travel companion. It's as usable with car (and home) stereos as it is with headphones.
The only thing I'm really missing lately is support for Chromecast, but that might be added in the future.
