Scott's disclaimer: I do not use this feature because I have a flip-phone.

The cache is *not* a time-shifting feature. It loads up to 12 hours of music but always attempts to remain in sync with the RP stream, so that when you go from a wifi zone to a no-signal zone, the music doesn't stop. Once you're back on a network, it fills the cache again but no matter what, what you're hearing will always be in sync with the live stream (or will actually be the live stream)...

12 hours after filling the cache, it will be empty again, whether you listen for 12 hours, 0 hours, or stop and start. As I understand it. 

 
That was the initial behavior of the iOS app, but now both will let you cache RP for later offline playback.

Trying to organize the download feature for play later.

I SET my *WIFI Cache Length* to 12hrs, then clicked *Fill and Refresh Cache* 

this combination seemed to set the app in motion :)

I went ahead and unchecked *Disable to block streaming over cell networks* as a precaution.

Now Im confused how to go forward???

(a) once the cache fills then when I press PLAY it just plays from the cache NOT in RT?
(b) do I have to keep manually refilling the cache or does it auto fill when I am on WIFI?
(c) when I am using this cache option how do I play RP in real-time?

Thanks for the help.

For those having issues,

There will be an update around Monday (3.1)  it's more of a general refresh so not sure it will help.

As a fallback there is an older version that does not have the caching feature.
If the legacy version doesn't work, I have had one report of needing to change the stream setting from ogg to mp3.
Was for an LG Optimus  I believe.

You can do this with alarm clock apps that have a launch app feature.   "Alarm Clock Plus"  for example.    You just need to enable  the play on launch setting in the Radio Paradise app.

Cheers!  

 
From the app's main page you click on the Preferences button to the right (looks like 3 sliders), then from there you can set the cache length that will download over wifi, and then fill and refresh it.
I think that it will then automatically play from the cache, but I have the "Cell Data" option unchecked just in case, since I don't want the data charges.

Also, if I recall correctly, the new features require Android 4.0 and above. My old phone on Gingerbread (2.3) didn't have any of the new features last I checked a couple weeks ago, despite the newest app version.
