Hi all,

Happy New Year.

I was playing with the iOS Broadcastify app and was in a city within 5 miles of my home feed(s) city. I did a search of feeds nearest to my location (using iOS Location Services) and my two feeds did NOT show up in the list. It some that were nearby and a feed some 74 miles away.
  1. What determines the geographical feed location to ensure accuracy when some does these searches in their apps?
  2. Is there somewhere to tag lat/long coordinates on our feeds?
  3. Does it do some weird indexing where higher # of listeners bubbles feeds to the top of the list? (if so, that seems odd to weight it that way)

The center of the county where your feed is assigned is the location data. There isn't any way to tag custom feed lat/lon coordinates at this time. We do sort a display feeds by location by listeners (sorted from higher listeners to lower)
