Nice concept, but would be better if you could get it to work via mobile data or Bluetooth (as opposed to WiFi) since chances are if people are gonna use their phones for music, they will be outdoors somewhere not at home where they probably have a music system already.

Hello djsubtronic and thank you for your feedback!

SoundSeeder supports Androids built-in mobile Hotspot.
You can create the mobile Hotspot (a link to the Wi-Fi settings is inside the app) and connect all devices to that Hotspot.
So you can use the app outdoors in the park while having a picnic.

Thats a great idea!
Is it really without any delay?

I have an unused HTC Hero with Gingerbread, this sound like the perfect use case for it.
I will give it a try, directly after work.

I love this app so much!!! Working flawlessly

However, about the in-app purchase, I wonder the license is just valid for the device that purchased or intergrated to the account? I do need the app right now but I'm not really willing to purchased it for my friend since my phone just stop at 4.0 till I got a new one.
