TuneIn Radio: Listen to Music and News on the Move
Radio is an incredible way to listen to music or receive other types of information wherever you are and even if you’re busy doing something else, for instance, driving. Internet radio services become more popular with each day thanks to how convenient they are to use on the go. At the moment, there are numerous apps to upload, and TuneIn Radio is certainly an application you should not miss.
TuneIn Radio is an application that allows you to listen to over 100,000 radio stations around the world, which is quite a mind-blowing number. Whether you’re a fan of sports, podcasts, or you simply want to listen to music, you can easily do so with the help of this convenient app. The app is extremely straightforward and easy-to-use – you’re offered to choose from international and local stations, different languages, and types of content (talk shows, podcasts, sports, music), and more.
Using this app, you can find the radio stations according to your particular taste as music that will be played there can be quite different. Once you upload and install TuneIn Radio, you get an opportunity to browse through an extensive list of music genres and make your choice. The radio stations offered by the app are from various countries around the globe, but the local ones are mentioned at the top for your convenience. Some of the radio stations popular in the entire world include Classic FM, BBC, Capital London, and many others.
When you listen to different stations and determine which ones deserve your attention, you can add them to your favorites. You will be able to see the album art to each song that is played on the radio, and have an opportunity to share the ones that you like with your friends on the social media websites or via email. Occasionally, you will see the icons that can bring you to the album on Amazon.com.
Besides music, you can also listen to talk radio, local and world news, or various sports streams (from NHL, MLB, NFL, and more), so if you don’t want to miss any important information in the world of sports, you should definitely go for the TuneIn Radio app. The sports categories that you’re interested in can also be chosen, which is quite important.
In addition to sports events, the live coverage of concerts is also something that a lot of people enjoy, and it’s certainly an excellent idea to use the app for this purpose. Also, some radio stations play audiobooks, which can be extremely useful and entertaining if you prefer to listen to books rather than reading.
As opposed to some other apps in this category, the TuneIn Radio application doesn’t allow you to create on-demand radio stations. It means that everything you hear is the content that is actually played on the stations that you have chosen. But, you still have an opportunity to see if any of the radio stations available in the app play the music that you like at any given moment.
While the main purpose of the application is to listen to radio stations, the visual aspect is still an important factor to consider as it’s always nice to use an app with the thoughtful and pleasant design. The TuneIn Radio app won’t impress you with its outstanding design, but it won’t get on your nerves either. The app is not cluttered and features a white background and light green colors of the details, which are easy on the eyes and not distracting. Overall, its design is quite simple yet efficient.
The application is intuitive and logical, so you will have zero troubles searching for the radio stations and choosing the ones that you prefer. The information is organized using several sections, such as home, my profile, browse (to look through all the stations), and search (if you want to find something specific). If you want to play TuneIn Radio while driving, you can enable a car mode, which makes the buttons bigger, thus making sure that it’s easy for you to switch between different stations while you’re moving. A great thing about this app in comparison to some others is that you can always see exactly which song or other content is played. In such a way, you don’t need to guess or search the information online to determine which song or podcast is played.
Cross-platform use 10/10
The application is available for the majority of modern platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. It doesn’t matter whether you want to install the app on your smartphone or tablet, as the TuneIn Radio app is designed for both of these devices.
You can download TuneIn Radio for free, and a lot of users are satisfied with the offered features and prefer not to upgrade. But, there are a number of advantages that you get from paying for TuneIn Premium, especially if you use the app on a regular basis. The paid version is free from ads and you get access to an extensive library of audiobooks, live play-by-play from games (BPL, NFL, MLB) throughout the entire season, and more. You also get an opportunity to record music and radio shows and listen to them later whenever you have time.
TuneIn is an excellent application if you want to access the world’s best radio stations, which cannot otherwise be listened to in your country. There are more radio stations in the application than you can ever hope to listen to, so you will undoubtedly find something to your taste.
