Radioo | Android Universal Multi Radio Stations App Template

Radioo | Android Universal Multi Radio Stations App Template









Both iOS and Android version share the same database on back4app






Dec 15th 2017
• Added a Facebook button in login.xml and its relative code to login with Facebook in Login.java and Configs.java
• Updated the User Guide
• Added a Splash Screen and a drawable-xxhdpi folder with the launch_screen.png image
Nov 3rd 2017
• Updated to Android Studio 3 and buildToolsVersion to '26.0.2' in build.gradle
• Edited the the 'backButt()' method in Stations.java, in order for the app not to crash:
       if (mediaPlayer != null) { mediaPlayer.pause(); }
Oct 7th 2017
• Added a custom 'simpleAlert()' function in Configs.java and removed the 'simpleAlert()' method in some java file
• Added a custom 'pd.xml' file in the 'layout' folder and some code into Confgs.java ('showPD()'  and 'hidePD()' methods), which are used to replace the ProgressDialog code in the java files (that's because ProgressDialog is deprecated by API 26 | Android O)
So I've replaced all the:
    pd.dismiss();
    pd.setMessagge(...);
    pd.show();

with the new lines of code to show and hide the custom ProgressDialog, which start with:
   Configs.showPD(...);
   Configs.hidePD();


Radioo is a Universal App template which stores free online radio stations into a flexible Parse Dashboard database hosted on http://back4app.com, all .m3u file links from SHOUTcast.com. You have to download the M3U files and extract the streaming URL from them, then simply paste them into your own Parse Dashboard to create playlists.
You can play radio stations anywhere with a 3G or WiFi connection, add radios to favorites (login/sign up required) and select your radio channels by Genre, and share the radio you’re listening to the world.

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO PHP files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for server side.

You may also use the Adminca.com, a free CMS panel for Parse SDK as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on http://adminca.com and create a new Panel, choose Self-hosted Parse Server and paste your Host link, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them in Core Settings of your back4app dashboard).



Radioo is very easy to customize, native Android Studio project, Parse SDK backend.

Can I host Parse Server on my own server?

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here: http://parseplatform.org

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

How do I rename the app’s package name?

Read this tutorial to learn how to rename a package name: https://hubpages.com/technology/Android-How-to-rename-an-app-package

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version by the Android SDK manager.

The demo APK crashes on startup

Make sure that the minimum Android version of your device is the one listed in the FEATURES section below. If the problem persists, please contact me by my profile’s contact form and send me the Logcat message of you get when the app crashes along with the steps you made to reproduce the crash. Please note that not all real devices print an error Logcat message, in this case just run the APK into the Android Studio’s emulator and you’ll surely get the red messages about your issue.

How do I remove AdMob banner ads?

  1. Enter the .xml files where there’s an AdView and remove its code:
        <com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
            android:id="@+id/admobBanner" 
            android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
            ads:adSize="BANNER" 
            ads:adUnitId="@string/ADMOB_BANNER_UNIT_ID" 
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" 
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true">
        </com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>
    
  2. Enter the .java files where there’s an AdRequest instance into its onCreate() method and remove its code:
            // Init AdMob banner
            AdView mAdView = (AdView) findViewById(R.id.admobBanner);
            AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
            mAdView.loadAd(adRequest);
    
  3. Lastly, remove the play-services-ads reference in the build.gradle file:
        compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:+'

We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for) but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
