RadioKit and Swift

Good news for those that are looking for an example of using RadioKit with Swift.   Matthew Fecher was kind enough to create a very nice Radio App using Swift 2.0 and he released it on GitHub.  He was also kind enough to give me permission to use it for demonstrating RadioKit usage with Swift.

Here is a link to the project:

This project demonstrates:
  • Playing stations from a JSON list 
  • Parsing the meta data of a live stream
  • Connecting to Live.FM to get album artwork for the currently playing song
  • Using the RadioKit rewind and fast forward features
  • Using the RadioKit buffer view to visualize where in the live stream playback is currently occurring
The sample project is a very good starting point for creating a professional radio app using Swift and RadioKit.
