Really great app idea.  I am definitely interested, and have been in something like this for a long time.  Are you planning to make it available free, freemium, or paid?  Do you plan to release source?

Opus support is definitely of interest for me as well because my interest is in broadcasting voice vs. more complicated content like music.

Also, I notice that the sample rates cap out at 44.1kHz, but Android internally defaults to 48kHz, which is also Opus's native (or, at least, most common) rate.
