FlyCast 2.0 Officially Released Now Includes Caching Options And Twitter Integration.

FlyCast has been my personal favorite streaming music application for the past while, reason being I currently live in Canada and Slacker and Pandora just simply are not available here for me to even try out. FlyCast has just put the official stamp on their 2.0 release which includes a lot of upgraded features:
- Storm supports both landscape and portrait mode now
- New Twitter interface added. Tweet a song and it will post a link
to the song on your Twitter feed that any user can click on to be taken
directly to that station on FlyCast to hear it.
- Station caching, users can now cache stations direct to their media card for playback when coverage is not available at all times.
- Loading of your own music library through FlyCast
All in all a great update for the service, the only thing that I do dislike about is that the station caching offer is only available as a 7 day free trial. After the 7 days, users will have the choice of paying $9.95 for 5 hours of caching or $19.95 for 20 hrs of caching via a one time fee. I understand and can appreciate the need to make money off of the service but after having it been available all this time for free and other offerings like Slacker having it included I'm less likely to consider it.
