Recording

Any chance we could record streams on wi-fi for later playback to avoid data usage charges? This seems to be about the only major function missing from this great app!

Caching radio stations for later listening would be great. We would like to do it but since we are partnered with SHOUTcast there are some legal guidelines we need to follow. Part of those guidelines are not to record the broadcast content. We currently have a few ideas that could in some way resolve the issues you mentioned, we are left to present them to SHOUTcast for approval.
Not sure if any of these ideas worth the risk, but:

1. Maybe, not recording "per se", but caching would be allowed, with 1 time replay ability (basically don't give away mp3, I can see the legal issue here, but if you cache the stream and user can replay it only once?)
2. Allow recording or caching (see 1.) for only manually added stations, that is not on the shoutcast?
