Swift Radio is an open source radio station app with robust and professional features. This is a fully realized Radio App built entirely in Swift. master is now the Xcode 11.4 / Swift 5 branch.
There are over 80 different apps accepted to the app store using this code!
View this GETTING STARTED VIDEO.
It's short & sweet to give you a quick overview.
Give it a quick watch.

Thanks to everyone! We couldn't do it without you!
Please note: I am unable to offer any free support or modifications. Thanks!
If you create an app with the code, or interesting project inspired by the code, shoot me an email. I love hearing about your projects!
This is just a basic template. You may use it as a clean starting point to add other features.
Some of the things I've built into this Radio code for clients include: Facebook login, Profiles, Saving Favorite Tracks, Playlists, Genres, Spotify integration, Enhanced Streaming, Tempo Analyzing, etc. There's almost unlimited things you can use this code as a starting place for. I keep this repo lightweight. That way you can customize it easily.
The "SwiftRadio-Settings.swift" file contains some project settings to get you started. Watch this Getting Started Video to get up & running quickly.
Includes full Xcode Project to jumpstart development.
Includes an example "stations.json" file. You may upload the JSON file to a server, so that you can update the stations in the app without resubmitting to the app store. The following fields are supported in the app:
name: The name of the station as you want it displayed (e.g. "Sub Pop Radio")
streamURL: The url of the actual stream
imageURL: Station image url. Station images in demo are 350x206. Image can be local or hosted. Leave out the "http" to use a local image (You can use either: "station-subpop" or "http://myurl.com/images/station-subpop.jpg")
desc: Short 2 or 3 word description of the station as you want it displayed (e.g. "Outlaw Country")
longDesc: Long description of the station to be used on the "info screen". This is optional.
Contributions are very welcome. Please check out the dev branch, create a separate branch (e.g. features/3dtouch). Please do not commit on master.
Q: Do I have to pay you anything if I make an app with this code?
A: Nope. This is completely open source, you can do whatever you want with it. It's usually cool to thank the project if you use the code. Go build stuff. Enjoy.
Q: How do I make my app support ipv6 networks?
A: For an app to be accepted by Apple to the app store as of June 1, 2016, you CAN NOT use number IP addresses. i.e. You must use something like "http://mystream.com/rock" instead of "http://126.96.36.199/" for your station stream URLs.
Q: Is there an example of using this with the Spotify API?
A: Yes, there is a branch here that uses it here (⚠️ deprecated).
Q: I updated the album art size in the Storyboard, and now the sizing is acting funny?
A: There is an albumArt constraint modified in the code. See the "optimizeForDeviceSize()" method in the NowPlayingVC.
Q: My radio station isn't playing?
A: Paste your stream URL into a browser to see if it will play there. The stream may be offline or have a weak connection.
Q: Can you help me add a feature? Can you help me understand the code? Can you help with a problem I'm having?
A: While I have a full-time job and other project obligations, I'd highly recommend you find a developer or mentor in your area to help. The code is well-documented and most developers should be able to help you rather quickly. While I am sometimes available for paid freelance work, see below in the readme, I am not able to provide any free support or modifications. Thank you for understanding!
Q: The song names aren't appearing for my station?
A: Check with your stream provider to make sure they are sending Metadata properly. If a station sends data in a unique way, you can modify the way the app parses the metadata, in the
RadioPlayer class implement
radioPlayer(_ player: FRadioPlayer, metadataDidChange rawValue: String?).
If you'd like to support this project, co-organizer Fethi has created a well-architected single station version of this code. It's a super great bargain: The developers behind this project typically charge up to $200/hr for freelance work, but this fully working code is only $50. No extra fees.
We have recent experience building iOS apps for both independent and high-profile clients (brand names and apps we can't discuss here, but, you would instantly recognize!) Additionally, we've built advanced versions of this radio code for amazing independent clients.
