TuneIn Radio - App Review



The world's radio stations on your iOS device; in a nutshell, that is exactly what TuneIn Radio delivers.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
When you start, you can either search for a station, show, song, or artist, or get a bit of guidance by choosing one of the categories:

Local radio
Recents (obviously there won't be any if you haven't used the App before)
Trending
Recommended
Music (which in turn will offer a large choice of categories for you to choose from)
Sports (and then subdivided by type)
News
Talk
By Location (this is not the same as local, as here you choose the location)
By Language
Top Podcasts

Once you have chosen what you want to listen to, is when you appreciate how excellent this App really is. In addition to the name of the station, song, and artist, you're in for a real treat. The album cover, or other artwork, will also be displayed on the screen. Additionally there is a 'Download on iTunes' button which will allow you to do just that
There is also a very useful car mode, which does away with the prettiness and replaces it with large buttons for all the major functions.

In a way, it seems amazing that an App for playing music from radio stations is actually more comprehensive than a radio but, TuneIn Radio really is that good.

Cost
The App is free and subsidised by discreet advertising. There is a Pro version (for a one-off modest charge) that not only removes the advertising but also allows you to record as well.

Indispensability
It's just a great way to listen to radio broadcasts.

Dependability
Provided your Internet connection is sufficient, the quality of the broadcast is excellent.
