Daphine, it is one download regardless of the free or pay version. The free version limits the user to the USA. There are credit card and PayPal options that open the stream choices worldwide. With the freee version, if you try to connect to, say, a station in the Bahamas the "whoop" and audio message is the same as you hear on Live365 when you fail to connect to a station. Regardless, Nobex is an terrific app which I highly recommend. I do not have any affiliation or ownership in Nobex; I'm just a user.
