We're taking this approach because we don't want to transition 620,000 user accounts to a new service where the users potentially doesn't want to have an account created for them on that service. However, we need to honor premium subscriptions and get feed provider's accounts moved over, thus our approach outlined above.
I figured I missed it. Much thanks

You might want to post a banner or something on the RR audio page to tell users to clear their cookies. My Firefox was still routing to page doesn't exist but my IE worked fine for broadcastify. I hadn't visited broadcastify before on IE but I did on firefox so that's why it's registering an old cookie as page doesn't exist. It also is routing to page doesn't exist on my phone browser skyfire, had to clear cookies for it to work.

Layout/features is pretty much the same but the graphics seem to load slower than the RR audio section.

This doesn't answer the question, so hopefully someone involved with the transition will be able to provide the answer. As a feed provider, I don't see where I can login on Broadcastify. So back to the original question FD5722 asked - when will this be available?

I was answering the part of the question pertaining to the login information being transferred over from RR to Broadcastify. When you click the link circled in this picture, it says "Coming Soon." I wasn't trying to say when it was going to be available. Maybe I'll just stop trying to be helpful when someone has a question.

As of right now is there a need to sign into Broadcastify? If you need to edit your feed u can still do this by modifying it here on RR and the changes will take effect on Broadcastify.. Log-in information always takes time to change over...as they are doing it for thousands of members...so be patient...they are working hard to change things over to bcfy...

If the graphics are loading slower for you...I would assume its you(or least ur internet) not bcfy. The graphics are top notch and are way better then RR audio section. I had NO issues going to Broadcastify without clearing any cookies which again Its most Likely a jasonpeoria911 issue and NOT the same with everyone else...What you my experience may not be so for others...In most cases issues ONLY arise to a small number of people...in Fact its so small...there is NO need to acknowledge it

Is there a new "Broadcastify" app or will the apps that were mentioned before be the same ones that were used previously through RadioReference?

Default Apps

For those asking apps, the Scanner Radio & Scanner Radio Pro still work great. Both are available in Google's Play store. When Broadcastify came online Wednesday night, the live feeds at Scanner Radio were switched over from RR. The archives (now at 3 months) were added with an update that was pushed out on Thursday.

There are feeds from other services on the app, but of course Broadcastify feeds outnumber all the rest.

I posted this yesterday, but I think it was overlooked by everyone that was replying to this thread, so here it is again. Thanks!

It is coming soon as indicated, please be patient.

Right now we're testing and reviewing the listen components of the site. For now, you'll continue to manage your feed on RadioReference.com

We're working on the IPN box styling and graphics - we'll get it included on Broadcastify here shortly.

Thanks,

I had no problems with cookies using Google (Win7) or Dolphin (Android 3.x) going from RR to BCify.

Thanks,
Im assuming then that IPN members will still be able to see all incidents in real time just like on RR, correct?

Just posting my observations chief. If you had read the comments, you would of noticed several others had problems with the page not re-directing correctly/cookie issue. I'm not goin to get all worked up about it, it was a business decision for Lindsay to get more money and hope it works for him. I'll still listen to the feeds, maybe throw up a small feed to get the archives for free but other than that, nothing is new with it.

Jason

This is what it will show to some users that visited broadcastify before it went live when typing Broadcastify - Live Police, Fire, EMS, Aircraft, and Rail Audio Feeds. This is from my firefox which I havn't cleared out my cookies yet. I had to clear the cookies on my skyfire android browser as I visited the site on that before it went live also. It worked fine on IE because I didn't visit before it went live. I thought it was still inactive until I read the forums lol.

Default Any and every time I try

to log into Broadcastify, in any shape or form, I get this message "Oops! This link appears to be broken." I've been trying to read this thread carefully to remedy the broken link, but somewhere I'm missing something that somebody has posted. Any ideas? (or is it that Broadcastify isn't up and running yet?)

Broadcastify is running perfectly fine...although we can not login yet...try clearing your cookies and use Firefox and/or Chrome and see if they work....
