The Android app holds a lot in store: radio livestreams in German, English, Russian and several Asian languages as well as background information and current news in politics, business, science, German Bundesliga, culture and lifestyle. The entertaining and informative "Video of the day" completes the comprehensive service of the Deutsche Welle Android application.
The download and usage of the DW Android application is free of a charge. Usual data transfer charges of your mobile provider apply.
Deutsche Welle is Germany's official public broadcaster and offers news worldwide via radio, TV and the internet - in 30 languages, ranging from Amharic to Urdu, Chinese, Russian to English and German.

On SGS, radio will sometimes restart by its self after the app is closed. The only way to stop this is to manually stop the running background service

It restarts by itself. Annoying!

Audio will start, glitch and stop. Pressing pause then play starts the cycle all over again. Audio is better from the website so I don't use this app.

Fantastic app for my Moto Cliq. Excellent news and information content. Would like some additional TV content.

Where's change log? Won't update until I know why it's necessary. 1 star for lack of transparency. NS 2.3. Ironic it says "Be informed" in description

Die "alte App" hatte sich auf die Staerken von DW konzentriert. INHALT! Diese ist einfach nur langweilig... Ein "NewsPortal" wie 1000 andere auch

There is no Exit button and the app simply doesn't want to stop, eating valuable data on 3g. (This will change once new features comes on board.)

On my HTC Desire, radio stops when screen is locked. It comes back when unlocked. Sleeper time feature would be great.
