Aggressive Advertising
by Witch705 on 2021/01/16 01:39
App doesn’t allow you to turn off badge notifications. They continue to push messages to the app inbox which display as a badge and on the app. Been told by iHeartRadio customer service 4 times now that I’ve been removed from getting these messages but I’m still receiving them.

Riddled with ads
by ChristianMarieP on 2021/01/15 18:01
Every time the phone loses connection, it forces you to listen to another ad! Instead of just picking up where it left off. Another crappy streaming app.
Good except for interruptions
by jdon65 on 2021/01/15 17:04
I like the ability to listen to local radio. I live out of range from some of my favorite stations. My problem is when I use another app, the signal is interrupted and I have to back to the app to to push play. Many time when I hit play I am forced to listen to another ad. Frustrating! 😠
App crashing
by Shiner33 on 2021/01/15 15:38
The App worked great until the latest update. When playing a bands radio station, it should continue to the next song. The next song is not coming up and the app crashes. I have the full subscription and this is frustrating.
Commercial after every song
by You321 on 2021/01/15 12:53
Idk what happened, but all of a sudden, no matter the playlist, I am getting a commercial after EVERY SONG!!! Why?! It’s so frustrating that I quit using the app to work out. I may quit using all together.

Hello, what I don’t like about iHeartRadio is that all of us and I’m talking all aaaallllllllll of us have to pay for a single song we want to listen to I just don’t get it. I love everything else about iHeartRadio thank you for listening to me BYE!!

Streaming live radio is sub par
by rdh23 on 2021/01/14 14:57
When streaming live radio, iHeartRadio will insert commercials of their own podcasts that overlap with the live stream. Very frequently the commercial breaks during a live stream will be 7-8 minutes while the actual commercial break is 3-4 minutes. Why do you not want me to listen to the actual show I’m trying to listen to?? Additionally, if I have to exit the app for various reasons, when I return to the app and resuming playing, I’m forced to watch a 30 second video ad. I get that advertising is part of your revenue stream, but isn’t that what commercial breaks on live radio are for or the ad reads during podcasts are for? If I had an fm radio to listen to live radio instead of the app, I would do that.

I use (used) this app for podcasts and I’ve finally had it. Episodes will not delete after listening like they are set to and lately it will randomly stop playing my current selection and start playing another. Deleted today. Goodbye iHeartRadio hello Spotify.
Wont support a company that gives Hannity & Limbaugh a platform for hate and lies
by SKathl33n on 2021/01/12 02:43
iHeartRadio needs to take responsibility for allowing their syndicated talk radio hosts to lie and present it as news or fact on their for profit shows which have absolutely resulted in the current state of our divided nation. If I could debit you 5 stars I would for your complete lack of ethics or dignity.
Garbage app

I have had this app for a long time now and I absolutely love it. I love that the app is free and everything is included (unless you upgrade your superscription) and I love the fact that this app is free to download on the App Store and google play store

Unbearable Ads
by Keifee on 2021/01/08 18:20
This app is pure garbage. Ads coming at you almost unbearably - every time you open the app and “play” a station they insert an ADDITIONAL streaming-only ad. These ads are often in espagnol (Spanish) even while I have NEVER tuned to a Spanish language station. If my phone interrupts the stream (timer going off, phone call coming in, etc) an ADDITIONAL ad will play. Come on iHeart!!! Figure out a business (revenue) model that doesn’t TURN OFF YOUR LISTENERS! To the advertisers: I will actively avoid ANY product/service contained in these streaming-only ads. So there...

I hate this app
by Bearwayne on 2021/01/07 22:28
Mainly because I have no choice if I want to listen to a Cumulus owned station. I only use it to listen to my local radio station so I don’t care about anything else this app does. My preferred radio app is Simple Radio. Every time I start a stream, I have to listen to a commercial before the stream starts. I have beard the same commercial at least 10 if not 15 times today. At least the video commercials have stopped. That’s super annoying if all I want to do is LISTEN. I used to immediately close the app if a video started playing.
Time to delete
by dave4727 on 2021/01/07 06:10
Enjoy some of the programs in this app but after today’s events I can’t continue to support an app that provides a platform for dangerous misinformation and conspiracy theories. It’s not a joke anymore. I’m deleting

App Doesn’t work.
by GolferSC on 2021/01/06 19:18
The app wants my zip code, fine I put it in but the keypad covers the next button with no way to move the careen or minimize the keypad. I absolutely do not and will never allow apps to access my location so that is not an option. If this is fixed and I can actually use the app I will change my review.

Great app
by 5625083 on 2021/01/06 13:16
I like this app a lot because it is easy to use even with poor wifi, and it has many good artists to choose from, even if you have the free version. My only problem with it is, I feel that they don’t play enough songs by the artist you want to listen to. They play too many songs that are similar to the artist, and not enough by the artist themselves. But other than that, it is definitely a good music app choice.
Not working well with Amazon devices
by KatMilli on 2021/01/06 12:31
Does some reason the programming is off. The commercials play and it goes to silence. The same commercial partially plays and goes to silence. It also cuts out when the radio hosts are interviewing. And just now it kicked me out of my iPhone. It’s very annoying. And no it’s not my internet which I speed tested and restarted.
Commercials

by Mhcu548787 on 2021/01/05 04:29
While listening don’t hit pause, answer a phone call or switch apps even if it is temporarily. If you do plan do an additional advertisements. Like their radio stations it feels like more there are more ads than content.

The ads, the *#$&'n long video before getting to listen, REPETITIVE, irritating, torture chamber ads that make me know that I will NEVER use their product/service just because of the ads. Despicable.

by Kru Bry on 2021/01/02 00:55
Like most apps that keep thinking they need to make it better and better .picking an artist has far less of their music spectrum played than a year or two ago it only plays the songs over and over that I thumb up that’s why I quit Pandora. Play more of the artist songs like you used too when we thumb up a song we wanna more songs like that most just wear out our Favs And now stopping Mid song for a Freakin commercial ?????? One more week before I find a new app

by ThomasRehettLover on 2021/01/01 18:32
This app has updates and there Is no offline music option so i can listen to music like on the app Amazon music and the app doesn’t have unlimited skips on songs and that you have to pay for some reason i wish it didn’t have podcasts because i don’t like podcasts and i also don’t like the explicit songs
Daily phone reboot & Ads kick in at wrong time
by BrownBear324 on 2020/12/31 15:21
As of 2 days ago, I’ve had to reboot my iPhone 12 because none of the stations will play. That’s ridiculous! I shouldn’t have to reboot my phone just to play stations on this app when they should just be able to play like they did the day before without rebooting. Did the latest update screw that up?!? Hmm! Also, I listen to On Air with Ryan Secrest show on KIIS-FM and ads tend to kick in the middle of a topic discussion between Ryan Secrest and his morning show cohorts. What’s the point of having the morning show topics if ads can kick in at anytime, hence interrupting discussions we want to hear?!? Fix this!!!!
Worst app
by Soccerduke9 on 2020/12/30 20:10
I never write reviews for anything, but wow this app deserves the worst review of all time. You simply can not listen to local sports and local channels, and it auto puts you on the new York channels. Wanted to listen to a sports broadcast but this app doesn’t allow the newer versions of the app to do it. Horrible app. Just make it simple. And allow people to pick the channels that are local.

by AstroPlayz on 2020/12/29 00:18
Love the app and how smooth it is! It is amazing how it can personalize your music so fast so you listen to what you love! However, I would recommend making certain songs free. It is annoying to have to buy a subscribtion to listen to it. Just certain songs to be free, not all of them. I listen to this every day. Great app!
What gives?
by chaney35 on 2020/12/28 15:39
I have been using I-heart Radio for years, with very spotty success. My latest experience is even more frustrating! All the stations on my play list are now "gone"! Yes they have been blocked or disappeared and it is impossible to figure out why. The reason given when I try to turn a station on is "unable to secure connection with router". That is totally confusing as I am working on-line approx. 90% of the time. As I have written previously this app is very erratic and often times unusable - this is one of those times. Others may rave about this program. In my case you'll have to prove it to me. Awful!
So relaxing!!❤️
by Love God, Love people ❤️🙏🏼 on 2020/12/28 05:05
iHeartRadio is very relaxing and will play even if your phone is turned off. I only listen to Christain music, but I love it. It makes me feel good about myself. Download iHeartRadio, and I think you won’t regret it. My music is playing as I’m writing this review. If some songs aren’t for you, then try a different podcast. And listen to some Christain music!!! It never hurts to grow closer to God. The one problem I have with it is it’s always asking me to do the free trial or upgrade it. Other than that, it’s pretty sweet.

Worst app ever
by Krazybabe on 2020/12/23 18:12
I will be listening to a podcast then suddenly it pops over to love music. Or I am listening to one podcast then suddenly jumps to a different one. Half the time the app won’t even load. It doesn’t want to delete podcasts when I try either. Also sis podcasts in reverse order. You have to manually go in and select after each one. For an app that really hyped podcasts it is horrible. I am moving in to Apple for all podcasts.
Nothing but ads
by simon. w on 2020/12/23 15:51
Absolutely horrible app, anytime you switch stations it gives you 3+ ads. Then on top of that you STILL have to deal with all of the typical radio. Just utter trash.

Totally Worth It
by zebie🤪 on 2020/12/22 01:12
This app is the best music app in my opinion. I downloaded this a while back to listen too music and it blew my mind! I was so impressed I cried. My kids love the station Hit Nation Jr. . It allows them to listen to music without cuss words. I personally like the Christmas station. The Christmas station has no adds in between songs. I also love how it allows you to make your own playlist. I like how you can listen to all stations on the radio. I don’t know about you, but I’m keeping this app on my iPhone forever!!!!!! Peace ✌️ out!

Great app. I use it on my iPhone and Android. I personally like the Android version better since I don’t have to restart the stream when it gets interrupted. On the iPhone you always have to restart the stream. It would be perfect, otherwise.

I love this app as a music platform. But on one of the previous updates for some reason, it made the background for the lyrics white while the font is also white which makes it impossible to read. This is what gives it a 4 star instead of a 5 star. Otherwise it would be perfect.

George Noory
by peggy1953 on 2020/12/18 06:00
The only reason I listen to iHeart is the music and George Noory and he doesn’t come on the air till 10:00pm. But with George Noory and any other shows on this station your brakes are WAY to long. So long I end up putting music on and never going back to the show except if it’s George Noory, he has the only show that keeps me hanging on! Thanks George! But as far as the rest of the talk radio on KFI goes I just can’t take the 20 minute breaks on KFI it’s just ridiculous! On 12/15/20 I received an email from KFI and they wanted me to change my review, I did and they are not going to like it but they should have never asked me to change my review cause I took away one star and told the truth about how they operate trying to get better reviews! I truly hope that they now think it’s NOT worth asking people to give better reviews!

iHeartRadio is a front runner in streaming
by WorldTarget.com on 2020/12/17 15:42
I have been vigorously trying to decide which of the four top music media streaming services to choose. iHeartRadio is leading that charge, because I listen to Talk Radio about a fourth of the time. They also have a very generous selection of Podcasts. I hope they continue to improve and even diversify from the other cookie cutter and monolithic streaming services. Wade ~ WorldTarget.com
Mediocre at best
by jokergeorge1 on 2020/12/16 23:15
If you’re trying to listen to a radio show, iheart will play commercials that play over the shows. You may miss the beginnings of -top of the hour, bottom, or mid breaks, while they run inane, endless commercials
Horrible
by 1Saya1978 on 2020/12/16 13:23
HORRIBLE.... literally an endless loop of commercials when trying to listen to radio stations. And NOT from the radio stations, it’s the advertisements.
I love this app
by Rose Gambill on 2020/12/16 05:47
I do think although there should be a weekly request for music on the radio like top 50 for a day out of the week! But I love this app if anything ❤️❤️❤️

Tried to force a purchase

Tried to force a purchase for “all access” that I never asked for.
Frustrating
by Sfvvbddvbhsxvjjfscjydd on 2020/12/15 17:54
If you have to take a phone call, or pause it for a moment, etc.… When you push play again you have to listen to a commercial all over again. And you can’t rewind, so you constantly get interrupted and miss part of what you’re listening to.
I love the app but....
by ToeFur79 on 2020/01/01 17:13
This app is great for listening to music. I love all the iHeart decades I listen to them all. You finally added iHeart 10. Ya. I also love listening to Valentine in the morning best morning show out there in my opinion of course. I do wish the full paid version was 10$ like apple’s. But I keep listening to the free version until that happens. Now to the only complaint I have you introduced podcasts okay I had never listened to nor cared about them until you started playing them then I found ComicBook nation and I was hooked. I have also found some really cool “radio dramas” but and here’s the problem I cannot listening to them in order with out opening the app after every podcast and selecting the next one otherwise it plays them in reverse order every time. Who wants to listen to a story backwards? I have played with the little arrows at the top of the podcast but that just reorders them on the list not the actual playing order. So I have unsubscribed from all of the podcasts that I am not caught up on until you fix is. Im not getting a ticket for being on my phone while driving just so I can hear a story I order. Love the app please fix this. Thank you for all you great work.
Was great on Windows Phone, new web app version six
by Nominally Normal on 2017/12/10 18:10
Loved this app on my Windows Phone, installed it when I was forced to switch to iPhone (which has been an inferior user experience in almost every way - it can’t even do autocorrect as well as the WP, but I digress), and it was pretty similar throughout the fall of 2017... logged in today, December, to find everything changed. I can’t figure out how to get to my favorite artist-based station (can find artist in search, but there doesn’t seem to be a station option anymore?) can’t find the Recently Played Songs list once I’m playing a station. It’s fine to change things, but not in such an extreme way that it appears so nonsensical to even fairly on-top-of-things users that they can’t easily find the features that are important to them. I don’t know if it was a web app before, but it must be because I don’t recall downloading an update and everything is just a little off, not polished and smooth like a native app would be. I expected that sort of thing on a minority platform like WP, but it’s really disappointing to have a worse experience on a brand new iPhone. Anyway, this app is in need of some major organizing/UI changes before it can match the user experience of previous versions. If I have to put in hours curating my stations (which looks like the direction this is going), as opposed to having a variety of stations that are good, just need minor tweaks to be great, I’d might as well use Pandora!
iHeartRadio
by toddster70 on 2018/02/04 11:50
I would have given it a five star BC I simply love being too listen to my home rock station when I'm working BC I work out of town most of time. But for some crazy reason lately it has started at 100% volume, even just now I got a head start on it and began working it down to about 60 % for it just to jump right back full blast even though I was holding down on volume button. Now I really can't explain how out why it would be turning down and almost to the half mark just for it to jump to the full volume while I'm still holding on the volume but this is not some thing that I can take or tolerate at 615 am nor will my boss's or work mates at this time in the morning and hell it could give some one a heart attack when u go from nor hearing a thing where a needle could be able to be heard hitting the floor. But you could say every one is awake today after this Bluetooth box going off. Please let me know what could and out can be done and if it's anything to do on my part in really sorry for not given the extra star but I had the volume working down for it to start over. Thanks and please have this fixed or fixed for me. Have no complaints about anything else so everyone download this app and listen to your favorite tubes so day and all the time for free.
Subscription
by Funbro1 on 2018/09/19 10:53
I was charged $5.99 for a subscription that I was “tricked” into signing up for. I canceled the subscription within minutes of discovering that I had signed up for it, but ended up being charged anyway. I went to the online help on the iHeartRadio app to verify that my subscription was canceled and there is no unsubscribe button to hit. I then emailed iHeartRadio and received this response. “iHeartRadio Customer Support does not internally handle subscriptions processed through Apple. However, if you need to cancel your subscription, you can do so by following the procedure below:” I folloedthe procedure “below” only to get to a dead end. I sure hope I don’t get charged again, I guess I will have to open up a dispute through my credit card company at this point. In the future I will be very very careful what buttons that I tap. It’s a shame that the app gets updated and changes around so much that it is unfamiliar if you don’t use it every single day. Through the many updates I have also lost my favorite stations and my saved stations, and it gets really frustrating.
Good App for streaming
by JLChaney's iPhone on 2019/06/05 16:46
It really is a good app. On the plus side, it is efficient with band usage if you have a limited internet plan. It is stable, with good buffering (I have lousy internet in my area so this is vital to me). It has a lot of content, including podcasts galore that can be downloaded. The minus, for which I deduct the stars has been to do with the ads. (I know, I could subscribe, but the monthly is too high for what I am listening too. Maybe some day someone can develop some sort of tiered subscriptions for those of us who just listen to limited content). I listen to a 24 hr news show with commentary. I grew up listening to KFI640 Los Angeles every morning. I don’t begrudge iheart for slipping in a couple of ads here and there, but you step right over THE PROGRAM ITSELF! Your ads should step on top of their ads, not the program. I want the whole news, not just the commentary. That’s what I chose, and it infuriates me when you cut the program off for a crappy 7-11 add, for which I will NEVER set foot in as my blood pressure rises, every time I see the sign and am reminded it’s going to INTERRUPT the program I am listening to in the morning. Iheart could program the timing of their ads better than this.
Subscription is too expensive
by StotkaGirls on 2018/10/06 03:55
Almost but not quite 5🌟, would have kept my monthly subscription but it’s way too costly. For just radio I thought, but considering it’s only $15 or so it’s not that bad. It would be great for a disc jockey (DJ) or a wedding event you can actually set up your own play lists so it can just continue playing continuously. Unless you feel the need to have the DJ interact with you like your in a pub or event to interact with the crowd. I’m sure that if you had issues to where you didn’t have a DJ show up for work then this would work for most small town or small scale clubs that’s holding only 50/75 people or so. I will say that most of the time I am able to find just about anything I want to listen when I had the subscription. And I didn’t have to listen to commercials. It’s really nice cause if you are a big music fan who buys a lot of tracks per month then I would just personally purchase a subscription to the iHeartRadio app. It’s just that cool. But being that I don’t buy that much music and I just couldn’t see spending that kind of money per month.
It’s all about the money
by Chief Colorado on 2019/09/15 10:58
I really thought I’d struck gold when i-heart radio was commercial free without a fee. Then it happened, they now charge for commercial free and the free station is littered with commercials that are louder and obnoxious in between the music I love to listen to each day. It’s sad it’s about the money and nothing is sacred anymore without a profit motive. The commercials can’t be manually jumped over and they are louder than the volume of the music. They interfere with atmosphere of the songs being played. I manually reduced the volume so I don’t have to listen to the drivel of each commercial played. Then they put you through a torturous video commercial at startup before you get to listen to your favorite music. Honestly, I can’t even remember one of their commercial sponsors except for the monotone , “Cars for kids “ that I muted until it goes over. We are so mercifully pelted with commercials these days that I don’t honestly remember any commercial I hear. If I’m going to by something, I use a search engine to find what I’m in need of and not brainwashed into buying something from an obnoxious repetitive commercial. If anything, I’m repelled by the commercials and boycott their products. Thank you for the opportunity to vent my displeasure with today’s technology held hostage by advertising ad-nauseum. Yuck!
American Top 40 with Casey Kasem!
by wxntrafficfan on 2018/08/14 18:38
Back when I had my car, I was paying $30/month for Sirius XM expressly for the purpose of listening to one Casey Kasem show each week. Someone on Facebook had suggested that I login to iHeartRadio and simply search “Casey Kasem”, and I found a channel that streams just American Top 40 shows from the 70s and 80s 24/7! Being only 25, I was never able to listen to his shows live, and Casey had passed just as I started getting into his shows in 2014. I had previously only kept iHeartRadio on my iPhone and iPad to be able to stream a station out of Grand Rapids, Michigan in November and December each year when they switch to Christmas music. Needless to say, I stream American Top 40 through iHeartRadio at least 1-2 hours a day, and often listen to it for extended periods while at work. Thank you iHeartRadio for making it possible for me to listen to an icon I didn’t get to know until it was too late.
Good App (Usually...)
by Rosemaryadventure23 on 2018/01/05 02:52
Edit: It seems like all of the other problems I list below are gone now, due to the fact that I can’t get the app to play ANY music now. None of my stations work, they all constantly have a loading symbol, and where the artist’s other songs/info are, it says, “Artist Profile is not available at this time”. The app is completely useless to me at this point because it doesn’t do anything, and this started today only a few hours ago. This can’t be a phone problem because I have the latest iOS on a brand new iPhone 8. I’m hoping this will be fixed soon. I've used this app for a few years, and I've discovered many new artists and songs through this app. However, I've been experiencing a few problems lately. My biggest problem is that sometimes the app will refresh in the middle of a song, and not just pause it, but get rid of the song completely. I'm not sure if I can fix this in my phone settings or if it's an app issue, but this has never happened before. Another issue is that some ads with sound play at the same time as a song, which is obviously annoying. Overall, it is a good app and does what it promises, but with a few bugs.
Great but one issue...
by Reviewer errrrr on 2019/06/04 00:46
I am completely loving this app. Features that I love is that it plays in the background of any other app. This is the best especially when using Waze in the car. I can still get the verbal directions from waze and the volume of iHeartRadio goes lower but doesn’t shut off! Also, when I close the app mid podcast, the podcast restarts automatically upon returning to the app. This also continues playing when minimized and when the phone is locked. The only feature that I would love to see change is the order in which the podcasts play. Instead of going up the list, example #4 to #5, the podcasts will play going down the list from #5 to #4. This means that you have to physically go into the app and click on the next podcast on the list. This is something that I hate doing, particularly when driving as it’s dangerous! I would love for iHeartRadio to fix this issue so that I can play a podcast list, and let it run up the list without needing to reopen the app and physically tap the next on the list. Besides this issue, I love this app for podcasts!
Super inconsistent
by DigitalDCH on 2019/07/07 11:27
I use this app because it gives me access to older podcasts than apple’s podcast app does, but this app is absolutely infuriating! Sometimes the controls will be available from the home screen or the control center, but not always. Sometimes the controls have play/pause, skip forward 30s and skip backward 15s, but sometimes it’s play/pause, skip forward 30s and 3 bars that allow you to skip to the next/last podcast and maybe remove it from your list of favorites (can’t remember the last feature). The fact that the app isn’t always recognized as playing means that I can’t use my headphone shortcuts to play/pause like I normally do, and have to go in to open the app if I want to pause, which is super inconvenient when someone comes in to talk to you but you’re listening to a podcast and have to dig around to finally make the app pause and by that point you’ve either missed an indeterminate amount of podcast or you’ve missed half of what the person was saying to you. Overall this seems like something that an app developer whose primary focus is audio should be really on top of, and it is pretty poor development not to have this figured out in my opinion.
WOW
by Darbie+doo on 2019/04/27 05:00
I first got a iHeartRadio as a free app when I first got my mobile device. It was free it was fun and the music was good because I could listen to it anywhere. That was about three years ago, now so much of the free things have been replaced by paid services that if I want to change anything that I had set up three years ago I can’t do it unless I pay them their fees to change anything on my accounts. You really have to love progress. On top of that because my mobile device is constantly logged on it doesn’t recognize the passwords I set up before they changed their site so now when I go to login online to try and change things it doesn’t recognize me. It’s a blast trying to reset my passwords and prove I’m not a freaking robot, great job iHeartRadio. I think it’s pretty funny that I have to prove I’m not a robot to reset my password but they can send automated email responses to folks. I’ve had these kind of problems before and they’ll send a generated email that says hey look up these corresponding posts on the forums to see if they match your problems. It’s all fun and games until the autistic guy wants to talk to a person then everybody hides behind a computer screen, if you find this funny awesome, if you don’t, fix it. It’s just one guys opinion.
To download or Not to d/l ?
by cbry1188 on 2018/05/23 19:58
I was going to dl the iheartradio Free app & thought I would check out the reviews before doing so. I was quite intrigued by the various array of issues that people pointed out, so I kept reading... first few reviews, I saw the response to the Reviewer’s issues by iheartradio was that they wanted to resolve whatever issues they were having & to please contact (email) them, so they can further address the problem(s). I thought, “Wow, they really do want to make sure that the problem is resolved for that person & seem to be taking that extra step in doing so.” Then I kept reading....I would have to say that each & every review that I read, the response was always the same , “pls contact (email) us, so that we can look into this issue and help you resolve it. “ Then I realized, why wouldn’t they address the issue or at least write down a foot note to the review,addressing the outcome & HOW it was corrected!!! I decided NOT to dl the app at this time bc I’m not if all the issues written about were ADDRESSED & CORRECTED ?? It’s great that you guys address the concerns and ask people to contact you for help -but how about letting the rest of us reading the reviews know how things turned out? Were the issues corrected & MORE IMPORTANTLY, How??
Tricked into automatically enrolling.
by Buckeye chris on 2018/09/15 16:05
I’ll start by saying I love the IHeartRadio app. I’ve been using it for almost 10 years now. It’s great because I travel for work and when in my truck in areas where there’s no local stations I can still have music. Plus I love all the podcasts. For instance I listen to the Alan Cox show that’s airs in Cleveland Ohio. They have all the shows from the past year so even if I miss a day or two I can go back and listen. However yesterday when I opened the app I had a popup window asking me to subscribe to a monthly trial. I tried to close the window and it automatically enrolled me in monthly subscriptions. I’m amazed apps can even get away with this. You basically tricked me into getting the subscription. You took advantage of the in-app purchase and since I have touch ID enabled there’s no way to avoid it. Judging by the reviews and the post on the Apple forums this is happening to a lot of people. I was able to contact Apple and let them know what was going on and have the charges blocked. I shouldn’t have had to go through this process at all. I feel bad for all the people that aren’t going to realize it happened and be billed. If this happens again I will delete this app.
Worst app for podcasts
by thetashalee on 2020/10/25 15:02
Literally the clunkiest app I’ve ever used. If you can listen to your favorite podcasts on another app, do it! Unfortunately the Elvis Duran Show is owned by iHeartRadio, so I have to use this app to listen to their replay shows and podcasts. It takes forever just to open the app and get to the show I want to listen to. I keep the app open if I have to pause for a bit, and usually I try to come back later and listen... only to find that the app has closed itself and I have to go and search for the podcast I was listening to. A lot of times it doesn’t save my place, so I have to fast forward to where I was. This app has TRICKED ME into accidentally signing up for their premium, paid version by randomly bringing up the thumbprint authorization even after I had closed out of the ad. I’ve also tried listening to some of my favorite shows “live” and it constantly cuts out. I’ve had this app for years and despite going through many updates, it still is just NOT great. I don’t know how anyone can give it more than 3 stars. Either make my favorite shows available on the Apple podcasts app, or make this stupid app BETTER.
Way too easy to accidentally subscribe
by brappleye3 on 2018/10/15 16:44
I haven't minded the iHeartRadio app and service and it generally works very well and it’s easy to use. However... I was listening to the radio while riding my bike recently, and pulled my phone out to change the station I was listening to, and somehow managed to accidentally subscribe to the “Plus” service while attempting to lock my phone after. Sorry, it shouldn’t be this easy to subscribe to your paid services, or if it is, it needs to be easier to reverse it immediately so I don’t have to live with a subscription/charges I don’t care to have. I didn’t bother to call Apple to have the charge removed since it seemed like a hassle hardly worth $6. I was able to discontinue the subscription in my Apple account so I won’t get recurring charges. It’s just frustrating that I managed to buy something I didn’t intend to. It should require a few steps to get to the purchase, especially for a recurring subscription! If it manages to happen again, you can bet I will stop using this app and find a different way to stream the stations I listen to.
A lot of Positive-A lot of negative
by GKDimples on 2019/12/02 21:12
Couldn’t be happier with content and stations. On the flip side, it will play the same ad over and over (consecutively) while there is a station break. Also, horrible experience with local employee. Two local stations, only, were not playing. I called in to local office and receptionist who you see to claim prizes answered and was horrific. Insisted it was not their office and problem was on my end and hung up. I called corporate who gave excellent customer service said the 2 stations I inquired about were in fact down. I called back the local station, to let her know what corporate said in case other people called in and she literally called me a liar. Hung up on me. I tried calling back numerous times and she literally would not say anything and would pick up phone and slam it down, during regular business hrs. Called corporate back in hopes my conversation with local was recorded. They were extremely friendly, and promised to address with mgmt but I never received a follow-up to their investigation, as requested.
Glitchy and individual dj sets DO NOT receive compensation from IHeartRadio
by agitated eggplant on 2020/07/13 17:26
I love being able to listen to my favorite morning radio show, but this app makes it quite difficult. It’s constantly crashing for no reason. If I close the app it will stop playing and when I go back to the app it restarts the whole thing and then I have to search for my show again and scroll down to find the episode I was in the middle of streaming. I know the app works “better” if you pay for it but that’s not how apps should work. You shouldn’t make a glitchy app to force people into paying for basic quality. Also! The radio show I listen to has been VERY vocal about not receiving any kickback from the profits of this app. I know for a fact that the producer of the show I listen to puts a lot of time and effort into uploading the podcasted version of the show, including the separate break segments. They should be receiving compensation, because thousands of people definitely listen to the podcasted version, and it should reflect on their ratings and listener count. Shame on you IHeart Media.
Love iHeartRadio and stuff to blow your mind
by scooter 501 on 2020/10/23 14:11
I really enjoy listening while working or just enjoying the show. Because I’m a new listener I do find it hard to navigate around the “Stuff” material. The list is so long that I find myself getting lost in the scrolling. It would be very helpful to divide the listening segments into groups, such as years of dates. That way you could find your place easier. I have recommended the show to friends but they all have trouble finding a particular podcast that I recommended. I also find it interesting that the earlier segments that date from 2010, which were hosted by a guy and gal had a different point of view than the more recent segments hosted by the two guys. (Sorry they are great but I can’t remember their names) I enjoy the male point of view that comes across but the difference is noticeable to me. Maybe they could throw in a female cohost once in a while.
I really do like this app but it could be better with minor fixes
by #1 Steve #1 on 2020/07/11 15:33
I listen to this app all the time and I love the concept but there are minor things that should be done to make it better. I love the podcasts but It does not seem to be fully compatible with I phone. The 11 pro is the first I phone I’ve ever had and I heart restarts or shuts off and won’t start replaying if I make or receive a call. I have to go into the app and start it back up. I’m disappointed with the selection of songs by some popular artists. Rammstein is very well known and played on I heart stations across the country. I am subscribed to the plus feature that you pay to be able to listen to full albums or save songs to play in your own playlist. They have 2 Rammstein albums neither of which include their popular songs. They have tons of crap bands and music no one listens to but lacking in music that is classic. There is no other way to make suggestions than write a review or I would’ve just contacted someone there with my feedback.
The app slows everything down and even stops internet connection
by Jesuslovesme4ever on 2018/09/18 08:09
I wanted to like IHeart Radio but every time, I download the app (which I have downloaded and re downloaded multiple times), it significantly slows my internet connection or even stops it. It also takes forever to load one song on the app and much can't be done on the app when a song is buffering. I even tried closing apps and deleting one or two apps and the app still slows everything down- a lot or even stops apps and the internet all together. Every time, I download the app, the internet stops working and as soon as I delete the app, everything on my phone works normally and fast again. I like that there is a decent selection to choose from (although it seems like Apple Music and Google Play have more variety in music) and the radio station selection is awesome. This app would be great if only the app didn't slow things down. I really wish this app worked. If only it were fast and didn't halt internet connection. I've never had these problems with any other music streaming app.
Podcast playback could be better
by Arrowhead Chief on 2020/04/15 13:55
I recently jumped from apple’s podcast system to this to hear my favorite radio podcast John and Ken because iHeart stopped having the Friday show on the Apple podcast stream. A move to get you to the iHeart app. Well I’m here and the podcast features are not that robust. The per episode playback order always goes newest to oldest and you can’t turn it the other way around. For catching up you have to remember that or you end up hearing the show out of order which is annoying if you just let the run to the next episode. No sleep timer available which helps you not run into other shows if you fall asleep listening. I got through eight episodes that way in one night. The skip features could be better and should be configurable. Get the settings better and I’ll rate you higher. Radio play of live content is great. Sound is clear.
iHeart Radio App for iPhone 7
by HnTresS on 2019/03/08 22:52
I have been listening to the music on this app for over a week now and I can't enough of it. They made it easy to navigate with great features. It works for me and I haven't experienced any problems as of yet. I think that this app is awesome and I usually don't write many reviews on things unless it's worth my time. Besides there is an app for everything now a days to sit there and rate them all when you download or use them would take a while, at least in my case. I recommend iHeart Radio for those of you who love music without tons of commercial breaks. Thanks iHeart Radio and keep up the good work. So far you have a really great thing going for you and I hope that it doesn't change to much over time with a bunch of pointless improvements or updates that aren't necessary to the users or listeners.
No respect, app is OK
by jeremy1069 on 2019/12/31 17:49
App is great but they have no respect for their listeners as far as radio stations go. None. Stations change format in the middle of the night, when listeners ask “Why” on Facebook or Twitter they’re deleted instantly. That’s how much respect iHeartradio has for their listeners. Zero. The radio stations get more generic and boring every year. The amount of time they spend playing commercials promoting this app could be literally used for something else more useful (Like real commercials that make real money or maybe a weather forecast) Beyond the bad radio stations, the app is pretty decent. Been using it since it came out around 2008 or so. Some of the other stations on this app are OK. Music streaming is nothing special. It has grown into a pretty decent Podcast platform in the last couple of years. There’s plenty to listen to. I do not believe they are “#1 for Podcasts” as they say on the radio over and over but I do believe they have a lot of them, which for people who listen to Podcasts (I rarely do) is a good thing.
App on repeat
by KyngEclipse on 2019/03/30 19:50
I do enjoy using the app every morning to get my daily dose of radio. However, lately it’s like the app has been on repeat. I know there’s a delay from the live radio broadcast, but why are the conversations starting over. In the middle of the conversations it goes silent for a few seconds and then the conversations start over from a certain point and it does this repeatedly for about 15-20 minutes. Sometimes it corrects itself but today it’s really gotten out of hand, I’ve missed over half of the live content because the first 30 seconds have been on constant repeat. It’s becoming annoying and makes me want to look towards other internet radio providers because it’s becoming too much to deal with now. *Update* Decided to come back and drop the rating due to the “help” that was offered from the developers. Why am I being asked for so much info that they should already have and also be asked to do this and that repeatedly when I already told the support team what was done to try and correct the issue. Dealing with support for this past week has been no help at all.
Unable to download podcasts for the last week
by 837394Hal on 2019/02/03 23:38
I love the app and I never leave a review on things. I’m reporting an issue. It was a little over a week ago. An update was sent out. Now I’m not able to download any podcasts. I’m forced to stream them only. It just keeps popping up with the message “unable to download” it repeatedly pops up ever couple seconds. I’ve checked to ensure I have given the app proper permissions. Please fix this issue. I get that I can’t download music or other things. Since I’m not a paying sub. As a free user I can only download podcasts. Which is good for me. I’ve always downloaded the Elvis Duran and the morning show. Along with three other Elvis Duran related shows. We really need the issue fixed, because it’s making me go over my data. I just got a text about being close to my 22.5 gig limit. I checked to see what is using my data. IHeartRadio has used 7 gigs in the last week. That’s because it’s fully loading the episode every single time I open up to listen. I will be forced to not use the app if this isn’t fixed. I will find something different. Love you all so please!!
Preffered over Pandora

I have used this app for about 3 years was pleased with the free version. I’ve seen it updated & pay for it to open up a few more features to find songs, some I can & some I can’t, but I pay the $5.99/month to repeat a single song once & some very limited song searching. I believed this app is good because I can mix genres of music & it’s intuitive enough to know when I need my gospel/Christian playlist vs. the other artists/songs that I’ve like in the past. It also offers suggestions & it doesn’t appear to be so commercialized, I repeat NOT a commercial distribution list of who you are forced to like. Some of my local/Independent artists have songs that I’m able to find. I’m thankful for that. I’m not an iTunes type of person. I hate I lost ALL of my music after switching from an iPhone 4 to iPhone 6s. It made my day to hear my own music that aren’t published on iTunes, so I’m glad to at least be able to search for the ones that I once had on here.
What happened?
by Krdurb on 2020/03/09 16:04
I am split down the middle on my rating. I have been using iHeartRadio app for years and it has been one of my most used apps(Rovers Morning Glory brought me here) and I never rarely had issues before. In fact, I would have probably given it 5 stars before. My favorite thing about this app was that it would pause where I left off on a podcast and I could resume it as soon as I opened the app again. This was very convenient. But now, since I had deleted the app and reinstalled it recently, it doesn’t do that anymore. I guess I re-downloaded the updated version? If I have the podcast going, and, say I watch a video on Facebook real quick, when I return back to what I was listening to on the iHeartRadio app, it starts the show completely over, and I’m stuck fast forwarding back through a 3 hour podcast to try and find where I was. It is really annoying and getting to the point where I really don’t even want to bother with the app any longer.
Dupped
by HaloFan239 on 2019/06/04 09:19
The app was great a few years ago and is fun on the desktop service since I last used it. I was itching for more radio recently and decided to open up the app. As soon as I did I was prompted with a subscription payment from iHeartRadio. They wanted me to verify that I wanted to try their trial subscription. I barely had enough time to look at what was going on before I accidentally rested my finger on my scanner and the subscription was accepted. I was lucky to be able to reverse it, however if I want that free trial now I have to use it immediately or not at all. This is ridiculous. I should not be immediately prompted with a payment upon opening an app that I haven’t used in months. Is downright disrespectful and near predatory. There was also no warning. No pop up to show me that I was going to make a purchase, no redirection. Immediately loading into the app I was forced into a transaction. From what I’ve read of similar reviews this isn’t uncommon. The lack of respect I was shown is disgusting to me. Please be wary of this. I will try out this app some more but this is a really bad way to start off.
I love the content, but not the updates
by Sammich12 on 2017/12/17 22:34
I first got iHeartRadio on my old ipod on ios6 and I loved it. They had a setting where I could explore music or listen to mostly the same stuff. They did away with that and I miss it. Since then they’ve made the sleep timer harder to access, and everytime I open the app I’m baraged with an ad to try to upgrade to a paid version. I don’ mind seeing that maybe once a week, but I’m using other apps more because I get this annoying self add every time I open the app. It’s also harder to find the most recent radio stations I listen to. It keeps getting harder and harder with the new updates. Lastly, I love the play on start-up feature, but lately it doesn’t work (even when turned on in the settings) probably because of the ad I have to close out of. I’ve dug out my old ipod and I now mostly listen to iHeartRadio from that with whatever version ios6 can handle
Good but could be better
by RyanDred on 2017/11/16 01:15
Honestly, this app is better than pandora. However, my main two issues with it are the dislike feature and the song selections when you choose a specific band or artist. 1. Dislike feature: The problem with it is that if you click the dislike button on a song, that same song will keep coming back later until you’ve disliked it 3-4 times. Then after about a month it’ll come back again 2. Band/artist song selection: My major issues with this feature is that when you choose a band you want to listen to, the app will play almost anything but that band/artist. For example, if you choose fallout boy the app will play a fallout boy song once in every ten songs or so. Therefore what is the point in being able to select an artist. Now I’m not saying I don’t want to hear things outside of the band/artist I have chosen, however, it would be nice to hear the chosen band/artist at least every other song or so.
I do love the radio options
by Cherie Fairy on 2018/08/09 06:06
Although there are a few things I feel that could be better. I feel like skipping songs shouldn’t be an exclusive thing only paid membership people can do an unlimited amount of times, cause on the radio station that is titled my name’s favorites, a lot of stuff is mixed in there that I don’t actually listen to. And also, despite giving them the thumbs down, they reappear again. What’s the point of giving that song a thumbs down if it’s just going to show up again? I know I’m nitpicky, but these are things I feel that could make the experience better for the users that can not afford a membership or a subscription. Cause right now I cannot work and I wanna listen to music how I want to...and that’s skipping over stuff I don’t like to get to what I do like.
Love/Annoyed
by ella rob on 2020/02/10 04:55
I love iHeartRadio 99.9 KSAB the best tejano music choices especially those who live on boarders of Texas because all you hear is music from Mexico (for those who like that music is great ) although born and raise with tejano/conjunto prefer 99.9 KSAB station I can have your station on all day and all night but....I never hear any stories from our Texas musicians from our original State “Texas” all I hear is other musicians from other states or countries on how they started there music which I hardly hear their kind of music on your station and I get annoyed when the same story is on night after night so if you read this and knowing I am a big fan of iHeartRadio 99.9 from Robstown Texas please get this message to the station I want to hear how Intocable or Little Joe or Elida Reyna and so on and so on started as musicians ...supporting our local and getting to know our famous musicians that are rocking the USA as we speak ...thank you
In A World Where Danger Is Everywhere...
by Pastorlarry on 2018/11/07 19:10
I was a subscriber to a popular satellite radio company who shall remain nameless. 🤔🤷‍♂️😂 Well, I found myself in between jobs and needing to find a way to stay caught up on what was going on in the worlds of sports, current world events, and the like. I had downloaded the iHeart Radio iPhone application a few years ago, but I never used it. Actually, I had forgotten about it due to the metal plate in my head negatively reacting to the use of my microwave when preparing my burritos. (My bowels would release and I would forget who I was for about an hour or so.) Anyway, I decided to utilize the application so as to experiment with and experience the full effects of the frequently promoted pleasure of said application. I must say that I was quite amazed at the vast and diverse selections at my fingertips! I am very thankful for the opportunity to listen to my favourite programs! I give this application 4 stars due to the excellence in which they approach this stubborn, never say die medium known as ”Radio.” Download it now and find out what you are missing! Also, if you too have a metal plate in your head, your reception will increase by at least 80%! iHeart radio and unlimited data...it is like heaven on earth, it is like Ireland without the pipe bombs. It is 🎯💯 GOLD!
Used to work better
by OriginalDino on 2017/11/28 19:57
Before the last update, iHeartRadio would resume the last station I was listening to when it connected with my car’s bluetooth. After the previous update, I started having to hit the channel down button on my steering wheel to get it to start playing. Fine, whatever. But since the last update even that no longer works; I have to open the app and manually tap the specific station I want. Every. Single. Time. Also, since the last update, every time I start the station, I get a 30-second video ad. Uh, a VIDEO ad, on iHeart RADIO? Seems a bit self-defeating, especially since many of the video ads have no audio indication of what they are advertising. So I’ve just learned to turn the audio down to zero when first starting, until the word ADVERTISEMENT goes away from my radio display. I tried iHeartAuto once, thinking to would be better suited to what I wanted, but that app was completely hopeless.
Fantastic Music
by MillionsLost on 2019/04/17 01:30
I have used iHeart Radio for about 3 years. I never have a problem finding the music I am interested in. The selection of live radio stations and genres is fabulous. I have lived in three different Countries besides the U.S. and it is fun to be able to find a “local station” from where I used to reside. iHeart makes it possible for me to stay current with the artists from these small Countries. This past weekend I went on a road trip through mountains. There were many places that Wi-Fi and even LTE were not available. iHeart radio continued playing through many of these places. Even when the radio stations on my radio weren’t playing. It really did make the trip better, having my favorite music along for the drive! Thanks iHeart!
Used to be great.
by Poloar caps on 2019/11/13 19:36
I’ve been having problems with the app as of recently. Radio stations work great but when listening to podcast, that’s where the problems start. First the playback order, I prefer to listen from old to newer ones just in case of two part episodes. Second after each episode I have to reopen the app to play the next episode since the app shuts down after ending an episode. And last the ads, it’s understandable why ads are needed but when you hear the same 30 second ad for 3 minutes straight and then again for another 1 or 2 when another episode starts. It gets really annoying. I have contacted them and got the general response of thanks for bringing it to their attention. This has been going on for almost 2 months. So now I’m stuck listening to out of order stories not understanding what is going on. Also the discontinuation of the watch app. It was better than using the native play to control the stations being played.
Don’t waste your money
by Lilmama88888888 on 2018/02/06 14:59
This app isn’t even worth downloading the free version, definitely don’t throw your money away for the paid version. 30% of the time I can’t get anything to load on here. When I actually can get it to work, it takes about 3 minutes to load. It rarely remembers where I left off on the podcasts. For example, right now, when it started up, after 3 minutes of waiting, it started playing a podcast I had already listened to. I kept trying to go to the Podcast I had already listened to about half of. The circle around the play button would go around and around for about 4 minutes and then it would go back to the previous podcast. After about 8 tried and wasting 20 minutes, it finally played the one I wanted, but started back over at the beginning, I had to spend another 5 minutes figuring out where I left off. There are so many other places to listen to music and podcasts, go elsewhere, unless you like constantly wasting 20 minutes of your day waiting for things to load.
Lousy App with Inconsistent Content
by ChiTownDave on 2019/06/04 20:07
They keep making this app worse! Now the app has to be restarted nearly every time I stop pause a channel. I can't help but wonder if they release updates as frequently as they do so that their app has more stars than it should. How about adding an option to nag screen of "Never" and making the default start screen "My Stations." Even trying to launch from the widget does not work as the app keeps forgetting my recent stations. I'd give it ZERO stars if I could. They took a buggy app that crashes, and introduced startup/channel change advertisements that delay getting to the program. It seems like every update makes this app perform worse. The newest version of app will just stop playing at the top and top and/or bottom of the hour. Further, the app once again fails to resume following a phone call. The widget also fails to play the station. Further, the app keeps forgetting recently played stations! More important is that channels like WLS are running commercials when the show has resumed for over-the-air listeners (that's assuming the stream is working at all). Further, app stops playing content for no apparent reason even while connected to WiFi. When tested against iheartradio on the computer (using same connection) the stream is playing on the computer, so the problem is with the app. Luckily, the content I enjoy is not limited to Clear Channel stations. Clear Channel should hire competent developers.
So many new problem
by Clarence kidney420 on 2018/10/06 19:23
Since the last update the app has been going crazy I pay monthly every month and it switches songs in the middle of listening to a song volume goes up and down like crazy and you can never find a number to talk to a person it makes me not want to pay with card monthly fee tried the free one does the same thing I would’ve given five stars but the new update messed it all up. They just keep saying it’s going to be fixed by their developers but they are not fixing it it has been almost 2 months paying $15 a month and they still have not even change thing and the only thing that they said was that they were working on it it’s all bull they don’t care about the people paying money the only way to get in touch with them is by email don’t waste your money they are as stupid as most people are these days horrible customer service maybe if they fix my radio station correctly I will give them a better review to be continued ?
Ridiculous amount of commercials...what a joke!
by Aposaki on 2020/01/14 16:29
So I had tried out iHeartRadio a few years ago when I was feeling nostalgic for my old Cleveland market radio stations. The trial was short lived, as the first time I booted up the app, it played several commercials before even playing a song. I saw where this was headed and immediately uninstalled the app. Today, feeling nostalgic again and with several years having passed, I figured hey, time to see if things have changed and give it another try! What a mistake. This time, I got ONE whole song, before it immediately proceeded to play five commercials in a row. I didn’t wait to see if it was going to play even more before it got back to the music. The commercials were not exactly short, either! So here I am, reinstalling the app and immediately uninstalling it, just like before. Guess things haven’t changed. I’m glad some people seem to get something out of it. I’ve gotten one song and about 10 commercials...what an amazing app!
Best app ever
by qweffhvf on 2019/05/31 20:52
I see a lot of reviews that aren’t positive about this app, yet I say there is no problems! Yes I know that there’s a lot of things you have to pay for, but there’s a lot of things you don’t. Like all my favorite channels, radio stations, and podcasts are free. I recommend this app for anybody Who likes listening to music. Also I was looking at my account and it gives me notifications whenever there’s a new song posted by One of my favorite artists and new podcast channels. I really like this app, and it kind of makes me feel weird that people are saying that it is a bad app. I mean how many apps give you a lot of free music? Not very many. Before I got this app I had to pay for all music, but now I get all my favorite stuff for free. #BestAppEver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ghosts Playing With My Phone??
by Tmama711 on 2017/10/28 11:57
I use this app every single day to listen to my local radio station morning show. I’ve never had an issue, always runs really smoothly, except for an occasional “dead air” or skip in the middle of a song. I don’t use it for much more, not even rating songs. Here’s my problem... I turn it off when I’m ready to walk out the door to go to work, and it randomly starts playing again. The app is completely turned off and closed. This happens several times a day. Even while I’m at work. I ended up deleting the app and reinstalled it hoping that would fix the problem. It didn’t. So I deleted it again to ensure that I wouldn’t be humiliated at work again by the random music playing from my purse. I download the app again because like I said, I listen to Elvis every single day but this is getting seriously old and annoying.
Loving “Classic American Top 40!!”
by Koffeeklick on 2020/03/08 18:46
Ever this app, its horrible! Now we need to login with facebook? Why?! And before while listening to iheart, if a song came on i really liked, id open shazam to capture it and share. But now, once i open shazam, the music on iheart completely stops, preventing me from capturing it. Shazam has been more than helpful, saying it has to do with the iheartradio app. But when i contacted iheartradio about my problem and joked if i can downgrade to the older version which worked perfectly, the only response i got was " no downgrade available". Thats it. No solution or anything.I emailed them again on 10/28, no response. Tried again a bit ago. Cant we go back to the old version, everyone hates this new update!!
App Issue
by Fjohn52 on 2019/02/28 14:31
For the third time, the app has gotten me to sign up for the $5.99 monthly version when I didn’t intend to. This didn’t happen ever until a couple of months ago. I pick up the phone to turn in the app and it asks for my thumbprint. Odd, but I do it. Then it says thanks for for subscription. There is no easy way to correct the mistake. It will let you cancel, but the charge isn’t reversed and I am stuck with it for a month. The first time, I spent a long time on the phone and email with Apple and PayPal. I eventually got the money reversed. The second time, I kicked myself for not having recognized it was happening again and I just canceled it and sucked up the $5.99 that I had to pay for a month of service I didn’t ask work. It happened again today and I am super frustrated. There must be something in this version of the app that is causing this because it never happened before. One had to go through a couple of steps to subscribe to the extra cost service.
Podcast Problems
by Sad/Angry @ Bump on 2020/03/13 03:46
This app is fine for listening to the radio but the podcasts are totally inferior to other podcasting apps. The ridiculous advertising of it being the #1 app for podcasting is infuriating. #1 because they force you to use their app for the content they offer. If you could listen to their podcasts on a different app plenty of people would. The most frustrating problem is that it frequently cannot remember where you left off. This is totally unacceptable for a podcast app. I absolutely miss when I could listen to my podcasts using the Podcast app on my iPhone - a drastically better product. I just went to use it again and it told me I was selected for a survey which I was looking forward to filling out. Of course clicking on it just took me to a website that said the survey was closed. That about sums up the quality of what this company is putting out (and then advertising is fantastic).
Use it all the time, but .....
by podcasterrrrrr on 2019/12/31 13:20
I am using this daily for podcasts that I follow. The functionality is nice. The coverage of content is awesome. No complaints on what the ap brings to the table. Two things that bother me, the first is the consistency. A lot of the podcasts become “unavailable” & can’t be accessed. I suspect that’s not always iHeart’s fault, but causes a lot of frustration. Number 2 is the ads. Ok, I could pay to get rid of them, but I won’t. I don’t have a problem that they are there, but there has to be more variety. They repeat the same three every break & the video that you’re forced to get through is the same two for months. There needs to be a better mix. Frequency (and timing) is annoying, but I get it. Just get a good bunch of ads and don’t play the same ones over and over and over. I’m really starting to hate Flo.
Too many repetitive commercials for radi
by Hagarpun on 2018/07/05 12:07
I like the app. I use the app for listening to my favorite radio station, WTKS 104.1. It can be glitchy at times, but I think it may have to do with cellular issues. The reason why I’m giving it 2 stars is because at every commercial break, it plays the same commercials over and over and over. I know the commercials played are a way to generate income for the app but it’s ridiculous how many times these same commercials are played. I personally will not ever buy any product or service from any company advertising on real radio because it’s sickening listening to them over and over. The funny thing is is that a lot of other listeners will complain about the app for this reason, on the air. Now, if I could pay the subscription to get more local commercials, I would pay for it not to hear the same commercials over and over and over. Are you listening iHeart radio?
So many songs I never wanted to hear
by LusitaniaAngel313 on 2017/12/20 09:10
So the only reason why I’m not ranking this 5 stars is my own favorites station. Before I had a pretty finite selection and I was cool with that! Now I’m flooded by songs I don’t really care for and it seems if I thumb them down, they return days later (example being Uptown Funk which I completely despise)! While yes the station will play some of the songs I do care for, once they switch to what they THINK I like, good luck getting my songs to play again. Also it annoys me when the same station flat out quits and won’t play anything! Like it ran out of content! Now I will admit this station has pulled some interesting surprises like pulling Jump by Rihanna to the station which made me happy as can be. I still listen wholeheartedly because where else can I blast CENTURIES into my ears? ;)

Aggressive Advertising
by Witch705 on 2021/01/16 01:39
App doesn’t allow you to turn off badge notifications. They continue to push messages to the app inbox which display as a badge and on the app. Been told by iHeartRadio customer service 4 times now that I’ve been removed from getting these messages but I’m still receiving them.

Riddled with ads
by ChristianMarieP on 2021/01/15 18:01
Every time the phone loses connection, it forces you to listen to another ad! Instead of just picking up where it left off. Another crappy streaming app.
Good except for interruptions
by jdon65 on 2021/01/15 17:04
I like the ability to listen to local radio. I live out of range from some of my favorite stations. My problem is when I use another app, the signal is interrupted and I have to back to the app to to push play. Many time when I hit play I am forced to listen to another ad. Frustrating! 😠
App crashing
by Shiner33 on 2021/01/15 15:38
The App worked great until the latest update. When playing a bands radio station, it should continue to the next song. The next song is not coming up and the app crashes. I have the full subscription and this is frustrating.
Commercial after every song
by You321 on 2021/01/15 12:53
Idk what happened, but all of a sudden, no matter the playlist, I am getting a commercial after EVERY SONG!!! Why?! It’s so frustrating that I quit using the app to work out. I may quit using all together.

Hello, what I don’t like about iHeartRadio is that all of us and I’m talking all aaaallllllllll of us have to pay for a single song we want to listen to I just don’t get it. I love everything else about iHeartRadio thank you for listening to me BYE!!

Streaming live radio is sub par
by rdh23 on 2021/01/14 14:57
When streaming live radio, iHeartRadio will insert commercials of their own podcasts that overlap with the live stream. Very frequently the commercial breaks during a live stream will be 7-8 minutes while the actual commercial break is 3-4 minutes. Why do you not want me to listen to the actual show I’m trying to listen to?? Additionally, if I have to exit the app for various reasons, when I return to the app and resuming playing, I’m forced to watch a 30 second video ad. I get that advertising is part of your revenue stream, but isn’t that what commercial breaks on live radio are for or the ad reads during podcasts are for? If I had an fm radio to listen to live radio instead of the app, I would do that.
It’s amazing

Wont support a company that gives Hannity & Limbaugh a platform for hate and lies
by SKathl33n on 2021/01/12 02:43
iHeartRadio needs to take responsibility for allowing their syndicated talk radio hosts to lie and present it as news or fact on their for profit shows which have absolutely resulted in the current state of our divided nation. If I could debit you 5 stars I would for your complete lack of ethics or dignity.

Unbearable Ads
by Keifee on 2021/01/08 18:20
This app is pure garbage. Ads coming at you almost unbearably - every time you open the app and “play” a station they insert an ADDITIONAL streaming-only ad. These ads are often in espagnol (Spanish) even while I have NEVER tuned to a Spanish language station. If my phone interrupts the stream (timer going off, phone call coming in, etc) an ADDITIONAL ad will play. Come on iHeart!!! Figure out a business (revenue) model that doesn’t TURN OFF YOUR LISTENERS! To the advertisers: I will actively avoid ANY product/service contained in these streaming-only ads. So there...

I hate this app
by Bearwayne on 2021/01/07 22:28
Mainly because I have no choice if I want to listen to a Cumulus owned station. I only use it to listen to my local radio station so I don’t care about anything else this app does. My preferred radio app is Simple Radio. Every time I start a stream, I have to listen to a commercial before the stream starts. I have beard the same commercial at least 10 if not 15 times today. At least the video commercials have stopped. That’s super annoying if all I want to do is LISTEN. I used to immediately close the app if a video started playing.
Time to delete
by dave4727 on 2021/01/07 06:10

App Doesn’t work.
by GolferSC on 2021/01/06 19:18
The app wants my zip code, fine I put it in but the keypad covers the next button with no way to move the careen or minimize the keypad. I absolutely do not and will never allow apps to access my location so that is not an option. If this is fixed and I can actually use the app I will change my review.

Great app
by 5625083 on 2021/01/06 13:16
I like this app a lot because it is easy to use even with poor wifi, and it has many good artists to choose from, even if you have the free version. My only problem with it is, I feel that they don’t play enough songs by the artist you want to listen to. They play too many songs that are similar to the artist, and not enough by the artist themselves. But other than that, it is definitely a good music app choice.
Not working well with Amazon devices
by KatMilli on 2021/01/06 12:31
Does some reason the programming is off. The commercials play and it goes to silence. The same commercial partially plays and goes to silence. It also cuts out when the radio hosts are interviewing. And just now it kicked me out of my iPhone. It’s very annoying. And no it’s not my internet which I speed tested and restarted.

While listening don’t hit pause, answer a phone call or switch apps even if it is temporarily. If you do plan do an additional advertisements. Like their radio stations it feels like more there are more ads than content.

Daily phone reboot & Ads kick in at wrong time
by BrownBear324 on 2020/12/31 15:21
As of 2 days ago, I’ve had to reboot my iPhone 12 because none of the stations will play. That’s ridiculous! I shouldn’t have to reboot my phone just to play stations on this app when they should just be able to play like they did the day before without rebooting. Did the latest update screw that up?!? Hmm! Also, I listen to On Air with Ryan Secrest show on KIIS-FM and ads tend to kick in the middle of a topic discussion between Ryan Secrest and his morning show cohorts. What’s the point of having the morning show topics if ads can kick in at anytime, hence interrupting discussions we want to hear?!? Fix this!!!!
Worst app
by Soccerduke9 on 2020/12/30 20:10
I never write reviews for anything, but wow this app deserves the worst review of all time. You simply can not listen to local sports and local channels, and it auto puts you on the new York channels. Wanted to listen to a sports broadcast but this app doesn’t allow the newer versions of the app to do it. Horrible app. Just make it simple. And allow people to pick the channels that are local.

Love the app and how smooth it is! It is amazing how it can personalize your music so fast so you listen to what you love! However, I would recommend making certain songs free. It is annoying to have to buy a subscribtion to listen to it. Just certain songs to be free, not all of them. I listen to this every day. Great app!
What gives?
by chaney35 on 2020/12/28 15:39
I have been using I-heart Radio for years, with very spotty success. My latest experience is even more frustrating! All the stations on my play list are now "gone"! Yes they have been blocked or disappeared and it is impossible to figure out why. The reason given when I try to turn a station on is "unable to secure connection with router". That is totally confusing as I am working on-line approx. 90% of the time. As I have written previously this app is very erratic and often times unusable - this is one of those times. Others may rave about this program. In my case you'll have to prove it to me. Awful!
So relaxing!!❤️
by Love God, Love people ❤️🙏🏼 on 2020/12/28 05:05
iHeartRadio is very relaxing and will play even if your phone is turned off. I only listen to Christain music, but I love it. It makes me feel good about myself. Download iHeartRadio, and I think you won’t regret it. My music is playing as I’m writing this review. If some songs aren’t for you, then try a different podcast. And listen to some Christain music!!! It never hurts to grow closer to God. The one problem I have with it is it’s always asking me to do the free trial or upgrade it. Other than that, it’s pretty sweet.

Worst app ever
by Krazybabe on 2020/12/23 18:12
I will be listening to a podcast then suddenly it pops over to love music. Or I am listening to one podcast then suddenly jumps to a different one. Half the time the app won’t even load. It doesn’t want to delete podcasts when I try either. Also sis podcasts in reverse order. You have to manually go in and select after each one. For an app that really hyped podcasts it is horrible. I am moving in to Apple for all podcasts.
Nothing but ads

Totally Worth It

This app is the best music app in my opinion. I downloaded this a while back to listen too music and it blew my mind! I was so impressed I cried. My kids love the station Hit Nation Jr. . It allows them to listen to music without cuss words. I personally like the Christmas station. The Christmas station has no adds in between songs. I also love how it allows you to make your own playlist. I like how you can listen to all stations on the radio. I don’t know about you, but I’m keeping this app on my iPhone forever!!!!!! Peace ✌️ out!

by peggy1953 on 2020/12/18 06:00
The only reason I listen to iHeart is the music and George Noory and he doesn’t come on the air till 10:00pm. But with George Noory and any other shows on this station your brakes are WAY to long. So long I end up putting music on and never going back to the show except if it’s George Noory, he has the only show that keeps me hanging on! Thanks George! But as far as the rest of the talk radio on KFI goes I just can’t take the 20 minute breaks on KFI it’s just ridiculous! On 12/15/20 I received an email from KFI and they wanted me to change my review, I did and they are not going to like it but they should have never asked me to change my review cause I took away one star and told the truth about how they operate trying to get better reviews! I truly hope that they now think it’s NOT worth asking people to give better reviews!

iHeartRadio is a front runner in streaming
by WorldTarget.com on 2020/12/17 15:42
I have been vigorously trying to decide which of the four top music media streaming services to choose. iHeartRadio is leading that charge, because I listen to Talk Radio about a fourth of the time. They also have a very generous selection of Podcasts. I hope they continue to improve and even diversify from the other cookie cutter and monolithic streaming services. Wade ~ WorldTarget.com

by Sfvvbddvbhsxvjjfscjydd on 2020/12/15 17:54
If you have to take a phone call, or pause it for a moment, etc.… When you push play again you have to listen to a commercial all over again. And you can’t rewind, so you constantly get interrupted and miss part of what you’re listening to.
I love the app but....
by ToeFur79 on 2020/01/01 17:13
This app is great for listening to music. I love all the iHeart decades I listen to them all. You finally added iHeart 10. Ya. I also love listening to Valentine in the morning best morning show out there in my opinion of course. I do wish the full paid version was 10$ like apple’s. But I keep listening to the free version until that happens. Now to the only complaint I have you introduced podcasts okay I had never listened to nor cared about them until you started playing them then I found ComicBook nation and I was hooked. I have also found some really cool “radio dramas” but and here’s the problem I cannot listening to them in order with out opening the app after every podcast and selecting the next one otherwise it plays them in reverse order every time. Who wants to listen to a story backwards? I have played with the little arrows at the top of the podcast but that just reorders them on the list not the actual playing order. So I have unsubscribed from all of the podcasts that I am not caught up on until you fix is. Im not getting a ticket for being on my phone while driving just so I can hear a story I order. Love the app please fix this. Thank you for all you great work.
Was great on Windows Phone, new web app version six
by Nominally Normal on 2017/12/10 18:10
Loved this app on my Windows Phone, installed it when I was forced to switch to iPhone (which has been an inferior user experience in almost every way - it can’t even do autocorrect as well as the WP, but I digress), and it was pretty similar throughout the fall of 2017... logged in today, December, to find everything changed. I can’t figure out how to get to my favorite artist-based station (can find artist in search, but there doesn’t seem to be a station option anymore?) can’t find the Recently Played Songs list once I’m playing a station. It’s fine to change things, but not in such an extreme way that it appears so nonsensical to even fairly on-top-of-things users that they can’t easily find the features that are important to them. I don’t know if it was a web app before, but it must be because I don’t recall downloading an update and everything is just a little off, not polished and smooth like a native app would be. I expected that sort of thing on a minority platform like WP, but it’s really disappointing to have a worse experience on a brand new iPhone. Anyway, this app is in need of some major organizing/UI changes before it can match the user experience of previous versions. If I have to put in hours curating my stations (which looks like the direction this is going), as opposed to having a variety of stations that are good, just need minor tweaks to be great, I’d might as well use Pandora!
iHeartRadio
by toddster70 on 2018/02/04 11:50
I would have given it a five star BC I simply love being too listen to my home rock station when I'm working BC I work out of town most of time. But for some crazy reason lately it has started at 100% volume, even just now I got a head start on it and began working it down to about 60 % for it just to jump right back full blast even though I was holding down on volume button. Now I really can't explain how out why it would be turning down and almost to the half mark just for it to jump to the full volume while I'm still holding on the volume but this is not some thing that I can take or tolerate at 615 am nor will my boss's or work mates at this time in the morning and hell it could give some one a heart attack when u go from nor hearing a thing where a needle could be able to be heard hitting the floor. But you could say every one is awake today after this Bluetooth box going off. Please let me know what could and out can be done and if it's anything to do on my part in really sorry for not given the extra star but I had the volume working down for it to start over. Thanks and please have this fixed or fixed for me. Have no complaints about anything else so everyone download this app and listen to your favorite tubes so day and all the time for free.
Subscription
by Funbro1 on 2018/09/19 10:53
I was charged $5.99 for a subscription that I was “tricked” into signing up for. I canceled the subscription within minutes of discovering that I had signed up for it, but ended up being charged anyway. I went to the online help on the iHeartRadio app to verify that my subscription was canceled and there is no unsubscribe button to hit. I then emailed iHeartRadio and received this response. “iHeartRadio Customer Support does not internally handle subscriptions processed through Apple. However, if you need to cancel your subscription, you can do so by following the procedure below:” I folloedthe procedure “below” only to get to a dead end. I sure hope I don’t get charged again, I guess I will have to open up a dispute through my credit card company at this point. In the future I will be very very careful what buttons that I tap. It’s a shame that the app gets updated and changes around so much that it is unfamiliar if you don’t use it every single day. Through the many updates I have also lost my favorite stations and my saved stations, and it gets really frustrating.
Good App for streaming
by JLChaney's iPhone on 2019/06/05 16:46
It really is a good app. On the plus side, it is efficient with band usage if you have a limited internet plan. It is stable, with good buffering (I have lousy internet in my area so this is vital to me). It has a lot of content, including podcasts galore that can be downloaded. The minus, for which I deduct the stars has been to do with the ads. (I know, I could subscribe, but the monthly is too high for what I am listening too. Maybe some day someone can develop some sort of tiered subscriptions for those of us who just listen to limited content). I listen to a 24 hr news show with commentary. I grew up listening to KFI640 Los Angeles every morning. I don’t begrudge iheart for slipping in a couple of ads here and there, but you step right over THE PROGRAM ITSELF! Your ads should step on top of their ads, not the program. I want the whole news, not just the commentary. That’s what I chose, and it infuriates me when you cut the program off for a crappy 7-11 add, for which I will NEVER set foot in as my blood pressure rises, every time I see the sign and am reminded it’s going to INTERRUPT the program I am listening to in the morning. Iheart could program the timing of their ads better than this.
Subscription is too expensive
by StotkaGirls on 2018/10/06 03:55
Almost but not quite 5🌟, would have kept my monthly subscription but it’s way too costly. For just radio I thought, but considering it’s only $15 or so it’s not that bad. It would be great for a disc jockey (DJ) or a wedding event you can actually set up your own play lists so it can just continue playing continuously. Unless you feel the need to have the DJ interact with you like your in a pub or event to interact with the crowd. I’m sure that if you had issues to where you didn’t have a DJ show up for work then this would work for most small town or small scale clubs that’s holding only 50/75 people or so. I will say that most of the time I am able to find just about anything I want to listen when I had the subscription. And I didn’t have to listen to commercials. It’s really nice cause if you are a big music fan who buys a lot of tracks per month then I would just personally purchase a subscription to the iHeartRadio app. It’s just that cool. But being that I don’t buy that much music and I just couldn’t see spending that kind of money per month.
It’s all about the money
by Chief Colorado on 2019/09/15 10:58
I really thought I’d struck gold when i-heart radio was commercial free without a fee. Then it happened, they now charge for commercial free and the free station is littered with commercials that are louder and obnoxious in between the music I love to listen to each day. It’s sad it’s about the money and nothing is sacred anymore without a profit motive. The commercials can’t be manually jumped over and they are louder than the volume of the music. They interfere with atmosphere of the songs being played. I manually reduced the volume so I don’t have to listen to the drivel of each commercial played. Then they put you through a torturous video commercial at startup before you get to listen to your favorite music. Honestly, I can’t even remember one of their commercial sponsors except for the monotone , “Cars for kids “ that I muted until it goes over. We are so mercifully pelted with commercials these days that I don’t honestly remember any commercial I hear. If I’m going to by something, I use a search engine to find what I’m in need of and not brainwashed into buying something from an obnoxious repetitive commercial. If anything, I’m repelled by the commercials and boycott their products. Thank you for the opportunity to vent my displeasure with today’s technology held hostage by advertising ad-nauseum. Yuck!
American Top 40 with Casey Kasem!
by wxntrafficfan on 2018/08/14 18:38
Back when I had my car, I was paying $30/month for Sirius XM expressly for the purpose of listening to one Casey Kasem show each week. Someone on Facebook had suggested that I login to iHeartRadio and simply search “Casey Kasem”, and I found a channel that streams just American Top 40 shows from the 70s and 80s 24/7! Being only 25, I was never able to listen to his shows live, and Casey had passed just as I started getting into his shows in 2014. I had previously only kept iHeartRadio on my iPhone and iPad to be able to stream a station out of Grand Rapids, Michigan in November and December each year when they switch to Christmas music. Needless to say, I stream American Top 40 through iHeartRadio at least 1-2 hours a day, and often listen to it for extended periods while at work. Thank you iHeartRadio for making it possible for me to listen to an icon I didn’t get to know until it was too late.
Good App (Usually...)
by Rosemaryadventure23 on 2018/01/05 02:52
Edit: It seems like all of the other problems I list below are gone now, due to the fact that I can’t get the app to play ANY music now. None of my stations work, they all constantly have a loading symbol, and where the artist’s other songs/info are, it says, “Artist Profile is not available at this time”. The app is completely useless to me at this point because it doesn’t do anything, and this started today only a few hours ago. This can’t be a phone problem because I have the latest iOS on a brand new iPhone 8. I’m hoping this will be fixed soon. I've used this app for a few years, and I've discovered many new artists and songs through this app. However, I've been experiencing a few problems lately. My biggest problem is that sometimes the app will refresh in the middle of a song, and not just pause it, but get rid of the song completely. I'm not sure if I can fix this in my phone settings or if it's an app issue, but this has never happened before. Another issue is that some ads with sound play at the same time as a song, which is obviously annoying. Overall, it is a good app and does what it promises, but with a few bugs.
Great but one issue...
by Reviewer errrrr on 2019/06/04 00:46
I am completely loving this app. Features that I love is that it plays in the background of any other app. This is the best especially when using Waze in the car. I can still get the verbal directions from waze and the volume of iHeartRadio goes lower but doesn’t shut off! Also, when I close the app mid podcast, the podcast restarts automatically upon returning to the app. This also continues playing when minimized and when the phone is locked. The only feature that I would love to see change is the order in which the podcasts play. Instead of going up the list, example #4 to #5, the podcasts will play going down the list from #5 to #4. This means that you have to physically go into the app and click on the next podcast on the list. This is something that I hate doing, particularly when driving as it’s dangerous! I would love for iHeartRadio to fix this issue so that I can play a podcast list, and let it run up the list without needing to reopen the app and physically tap the next on the list. Besides this issue, I love this app for podcasts!
Super inconsistent
by DigitalDCH on 2019/07/07 11:27
I use this app because it gives me access to older podcasts than apple’s podcast app does, but this app is absolutely infuriating! Sometimes the controls will be available from the home screen or the control center, but not always. Sometimes the controls have play/pause, skip forward 30s and skip backward 15s, but sometimes it’s play/pause, skip forward 30s and 3 bars that allow you to skip to the next/last podcast and maybe remove it from your list of favorites (can’t remember the last feature). The fact that the app isn’t always recognized as playing means that I can’t use my headphone shortcuts to play/pause like I normally do, and have to go in to open the app if I want to pause, which is super inconvenient when someone comes in to talk to you but you’re listening to a podcast and have to dig around to finally make the app pause and by that point you’ve either missed an indeterminate amount of podcast or you’ve missed half of what the person was saying to you. Overall this seems like something that an app developer whose primary focus is audio should be really on top of, and it is pretty poor development not to have this figured out in my opinion.
WOW
by Darbie+doo on 2019/04/27 05:00
I first got a iHeartRadio as a free app when I first got my mobile device. It was free it was fun and the music was good because I could listen to it anywhere. That was about three years ago, now so much of the free things have been replaced by paid services that if I want to change anything that I had set up three years ago I can’t do it unless I pay them their fees to change anything on my accounts. You really have to love progress. On top of that because my mobile device is constantly logged on it doesn’t recognize the passwords I set up before they changed their site so now when I go to login online to try and change things it doesn’t recognize me. It’s a blast trying to reset my passwords and prove I’m not a freaking robot, great job iHeartRadio. I think it’s pretty funny that I have to prove I’m not a robot to reset my password but they can send automated email responses to folks. I’ve had these kind of problems before and they’ll send a generated email that says hey look up these corresponding posts on the forums to see if they match your problems. It’s all fun and games until the autistic guy wants to talk to a person then everybody hides behind a computer screen, if you find this funny awesome, if you don’t, fix it. It’s just one guys opinion.
To download or Not to d/l ?
by cbry1188 on 2018/05/23 19:58
I was going to dl the iheartradio Free app & thought I would check out the reviews before doing so. I was quite intrigued by the various array of issues that people pointed out, so I kept reading... first few reviews, I saw the response to the Reviewer’s issues by iheartradio was that they wanted to resolve whatever issues they were having & to please contact (email) them, so they can further address the problem(s). I thought, “Wow, they really do want to make sure that the problem is resolved for that person & seem to be taking that extra step in doing so.” Then I kept reading....I would have to say that each & every review that I read, the response was always the same , “pls contact (email) us, so that we can look into this issue and help you resolve it. “ Then I realized, why wouldn’t they address the issue or at least write down a foot note to the review,addressing the outcome & HOW it was corrected!!! I decided NOT to dl the app at this time bc I’m not if all the issues written about were ADDRESSED & CORRECTED ?? It’s great that you guys address the concerns and ask people to contact you for help -but how about letting the rest of us reading the reviews know how things turned out? Were the issues corrected & MORE IMPORTANTLY, How??
Tricked into automatically enrolling.
by Buckeye chris on 2018/09/15 16:05
I’ll start by saying I love the IHeartRadio app. I’ve been using it for almost 10 years now. It’s great because I travel for work and when in my truck in areas where there’s no local stations I can still have music. Plus I love all the podcasts. For instance I listen to the Alan Cox show that’s airs in Cleveland Ohio. They have all the shows from the past year so even if I miss a day or two I can go back and listen. However yesterday when I opened the app I had a popup window asking me to subscribe to a monthly trial. I tried to close the window and it automatically enrolled me in monthly subscriptions. I’m amazed apps can even get away with this. You basically tricked me into getting the subscription. You took advantage of the in-app purchase and since I have touch ID enabled there’s no way to avoid it. Judging by the reviews and the post on the Apple forums this is happening to a lot of people. I was able to contact Apple and let them know what was going on and have the charges blocked. I shouldn’t have had to go through this process at all. I feel bad for all the people that aren’t going to realize it happened and be billed. If this happens again I will delete this app.
Worst app for podcasts
by thetashalee on 2020/10/25 15:02
Literally the clunkiest app I’ve ever used. If you can listen to your favorite podcasts on another app, do it! Unfortunately the Elvis Duran Show is owned by iHeartRadio, so I have to use this app to listen to their replay shows and podcasts. It takes forever just to open the app and get to the show I want to listen to. I keep the app open if I have to pause for a bit, and usually I try to come back later and listen... only to find that the app has closed itself and I have to go and search for the podcast I was listening to. A lot of times it doesn’t save my place, so I have to fast forward to where I was. This app has TRICKED ME into accidentally signing up for their premium, paid version by randomly bringing up the thumbprint authorization even after I had closed out of the ad. I’ve also tried listening to some of my favorite shows “live” and it constantly cuts out. I’ve had this app for years and despite going through many updates, it still is just NOT great. I don’t know how anyone can give it more than 3 stars. Either make my favorite shows available on the Apple podcasts app, or make this stupid app BETTER.
Way too easy to accidentally subscribe
by brappleye3 on 2018/10/15 16:44
I haven't minded the iHeartRadio app and service and it generally works very well and it’s easy to use. However... I was listening to the radio while riding my bike recently, and pulled my phone out to change the station I was listening to, and somehow managed to accidentally subscribe to the “Plus” service while attempting to lock my phone after. Sorry, it shouldn’t be this easy to subscribe to your paid services, or if it is, it needs to be easier to reverse it immediately so I don’t have to live with a subscription/charges I don’t care to have. I didn’t bother to call Apple to have the charge removed since it seemed like a hassle hardly worth $6. I was able to discontinue the subscription in my Apple account so I won’t get recurring charges. It’s just frustrating that I managed to buy something I didn’t intend to. It should require a few steps to get to the purchase, especially for a recurring subscription! If it manages to happen again, you can bet I will stop using this app and find a different way to stream the stations I listen to.
A lot of Positive-A lot of negative
by GKDimples on 2019/12/02 21:12
Couldn’t be happier with content and stations. On the flip side, it will play the same ad over and over (consecutively) while there is a station break. Also, horrible experience with local employee. Two local stations, only, were not playing. I called in to local office and receptionist who you see to claim prizes answered and was horrific. Insisted it was not their office and problem was on my end and hung up. I called corporate who gave excellent customer service said the 2 stations I inquired about were in fact down. I called back the local station, to let her know what corporate said in case other people called in and she literally called me a liar. Hung up on me. I tried calling back numerous times and she literally would not say anything and would pick up phone and slam it down, during regular business hrs. Called corporate back in hopes my conversation with local was recorded. They were extremely friendly, and promised to address with mgmt but I never received a follow-up to their investigation, as requested.
Glitchy and individual dj sets DO NOT receive compensation from IHeartRadio
by agitated eggplant on 2020/07/13 17:26
I love being able to listen to my favorite morning radio show, but this app makes it quite difficult. It’s constantly crashing for no reason. If I close the app it will stop playing and when I go back to the app it restarts the whole thing and then I have to search for my show again and scroll down to find the episode I was in the middle of streaming. I know the app works “better” if you pay for it but that’s not how apps should work. You shouldn’t make a glitchy app to force people into paying for basic quality. Also! The radio show I listen to has been VERY vocal about not receiving any kickback from the profits of this app. I know for a fact that the producer of the show I listen to puts a lot of time and effort into uploading the podcasted version of the show, including the separate break segments. They should be receiving compensation, because thousands of people definitely listen to the podcasted version, and it should reflect on their ratings and listener count. Shame on you IHeart Media.
Love iHeartRadio and stuff to blow your mind
by scooter 501 on 2020/10/23 14:11
I really enjoy listening while working or just enjoying the show. Because I’m a new listener I do find it hard to navigate around the “Stuff” material. The list is so long that I find myself getting lost in the scrolling. It would be very helpful to divide the listening segments into groups, such as years of dates. That way you could find your place easier. I have recommended the show to friends but they all have trouble finding a particular podcast that I recommended. I also find it interesting that the earlier segments that date from 2010, which were hosted by a guy and gal had a different point of view than the more recent segments hosted by the two guys. (Sorry they are great but I can’t remember their names) I enjoy the male point of view that comes across but the difference is noticeable to me. Maybe they could throw in a female cohost once in a while.
I really do like this app but it could be better with minor fixes
by #1 Steve #1 on 2020/07/11 15:33
I listen to this app all the time and I love the concept but there are minor things that should be done to make it better. I love the podcasts but It does not seem to be fully compatible with I phone. The 11 pro is the first I phone I’ve ever had and I heart restarts or shuts off and won’t start replaying if I make or receive a call. I have to go into the app and start it back up. I’m disappointed with the selection of songs by some popular artists. Rammstein is very well known and played on I heart stations across the country. I am subscribed to the plus feature that you pay to be able to listen to full albums or save songs to play in your own playlist. They have 2 Rammstein albums neither of which include their popular songs. They have tons of crap bands and music no one listens to but lacking in music that is classic. There is no other way to make suggestions than write a review or I would’ve just contacted someone there with my feedback.
The app slows everything down and even stops internet connection
by Jesuslovesme4ever on 2018/09/18 08:09
I wanted to like IHeart Radio but every time, I download the app (which I have downloaded and re downloaded multiple times), it significantly slows my internet connection or even stops it. It also takes forever to load one song on the app and much can't be done on the app when a song is buffering. I even tried closing apps and deleting one or two apps and the app still slows everything down- a lot or even stops apps and the internet all together. Every time, I download the app, the internet stops working and as soon as I delete the app, everything on my phone works normally and fast again. I like that there is a decent selection to choose from (although it seems like Apple Music and Google Play have more variety in music) and the radio station selection is awesome. This app would be great if only the app didn't slow things down. I really wish this app worked. If only it were fast and didn't halt internet connection. I've never had these problems with any other music streaming app.
Podcast playback could be better
by Arrowhead Chief on 2020/04/15 13:55
I recently jumped from apple’s podcast system to this to hear my favorite radio podcast John and Ken because iHeart stopped having the Friday show on the Apple podcast stream. A move to get you to the iHeart app. Well I’m here and the podcast features are not that robust. The per episode playback order always goes newest to oldest and you can’t turn it the other way around. For catching up you have to remember that or you end up hearing the show out of order which is annoying if you just let the run to the next episode. No sleep timer available which helps you not run into other shows if you fall asleep listening. I got through eight episodes that way in one night. The skip features could be better and should be configurable. Get the settings better and I’ll rate you higher. Radio play of live content is great. Sound is clear.
iHeart Radio App for iPhone 7
by HnTresS on 2019/03/08 22:52
I have been listening to the music on this app for over a week now and I can't enough of it. They made it easy to navigate with great features. It works for me and I haven't experienced any problems as of yet. I think that this app is awesome and I usually don't write many reviews on things unless it's worth my time. Besides there is an app for everything now a days to sit there and rate them all when you download or use them would take a while, at least in my case. I recommend iHeart Radio for those of you who love music without tons of commercial breaks. Thanks iHeart Radio and keep up the good work. So far you have a really great thing going for you and I hope that it doesn't change to much over time with a bunch of pointless improvements or updates that aren't necessary to the users or listeners.
No respect, app is OK
by jeremy1069 on 2019/12/31 17:49
App is great but they have no respect for their listeners as far as radio stations go. None. Stations change format in the middle of the night, when listeners ask “Why” on Facebook or Twitter they’re deleted instantly. That’s how much respect iHeartradio has for their listeners. Zero. The radio stations get more generic and boring every year. The amount of time they spend playing commercials promoting this app could be literally used for something else more useful (Like real commercials that make real money or maybe a weather forecast) Beyond the bad radio stations, the app is pretty decent. Been using it since it came out around 2008 or so. Some of the other stations on this app are OK. Music streaming is nothing special. It has grown into a pretty decent Podcast platform in the last couple of years. There’s plenty to listen to. I do not believe they are “#1 for Podcasts” as they say on the radio over and over but I do believe they have a lot of them, which for people who listen to Podcasts (I rarely do) is a good thing.
App on repeat
by KyngEclipse on 2019/03/30 19:50
I do enjoy using the app every morning to get my daily dose of radio. However, lately it’s like the app has been on repeat. I know there’s a delay from the live radio broadcast, but why are the conversations starting over. In the middle of the conversations it goes silent for a few seconds and then the conversations start over from a certain point and it does this repeatedly for about 15-20 minutes. Sometimes it corrects itself but today it’s really gotten out of hand, I’ve missed over half of the live content because the first 30 seconds have been on constant repeat. It’s becoming annoying and makes me want to look towards other internet radio providers because it’s becoming too much to deal with now. *Update* Decided to come back and drop the rating due to the “help” that was offered from the developers. Why am I being asked for so much info that they should already have and also be asked to do this and that repeatedly when I already told the support team what was done to try and correct the issue. Dealing with support for this past week has been no help at all.
Unable to download podcasts for the last week
by 837394Hal on 2019/02/03 23:38
I love the app and I never leave a review on things. I’m reporting an issue. It was a little over a week ago. An update was sent out. Now I’m not able to download any podcasts. I’m forced to stream them only. It just keeps popping up with the message “unable to download” it repeatedly pops up ever couple seconds. I’ve checked to ensure I have given the app proper permissions. Please fix this issue. I get that I can’t download music or other things. Since I’m not a paying sub. As a free user I can only download podcasts. Which is good for me. I’ve always downloaded the Elvis Duran and the morning show. Along with three other Elvis Duran related shows. We really need the issue fixed, because it’s making me go over my data. I just got a text about being close to my 22.5 gig limit. I checked to see what is using my data. IHeartRadio has used 7 gigs in the last week. That’s because it’s fully loading the episode every single time I open up to listen. I will be forced to not use the app if this isn’t fixed. I will find something different. Love you all so please!!
Preffered over Pandora
by Moe The Messenger on 2017/12/23 11:48
I have used this app for about 3 years was pleased with the free version. I’ve seen it updated & pay for it to open up a few more features to find songs, some I can & some I can’t, but I pay the $5.99/month to repeat a single song once & some very limited song searching. I believed this app is good because I can mix genres of music & it’s intuitive enough to know when I need my gospel/Christian playlist vs. the other artists/songs that I’ve like in the past. It also offers suggestions & it doesn’t appear to be so commercialized, I repeat NOT a commercial distribution list of who you are forced to like. Some of my local/Independent artists have songs that I’m able to find. I’m thankful for that. I’m not an iTunes type of person. I hate I lost ALL of my music after switching from an iPhone 4 to iPhone 6s. It made my day to hear my own music that aren’t published on iTunes, so I’m glad to at least be able to search for the ones that I once had on here.
What happened?
by Krdurb on 2020/03/09 16:04
I am split down the middle on my rating. I have been using iHeartRadio app for years and it has been one of my most used apps(Rovers Morning Glory brought me here) and I never rarely had issues before. In fact, I would have probably given it 5 stars before. My favorite thing about this app was that it would pause where I left off on a podcast and I could resume it as soon as I opened the app again. This was very convenient. But now, since I had deleted the app and reinstalled it recently, it doesn’t do that anymore. I guess I re-downloaded the updated version? If I have the podcast going, and, say I watch a video on Facebook real quick, when I return back to what I was listening to on the iHeartRadio app, it starts the show completely over, and I’m stuck fast forwarding back through a 3 hour podcast to try and find where I was. It is really annoying and getting to the point where I really don’t even want to bother with the app any longer.
Dupped
by HaloFan239 on 2019/06/04 09:19
The app was great a few years ago and is fun on the desktop service since I last used it. I was itching for more radio recently and decided to open up the app. As soon as I did I was prompted with a subscription payment from iHeartRadio. They wanted me to verify that I wanted to try their trial subscription. I barely had enough time to look at what was going on before I accidentally rested my finger on my scanner and the subscription was accepted. I was lucky to be able to reverse it, however if I want that free trial now I have to use it immediately or not at all. This is ridiculous. I should not be immediately prompted with a payment upon opening an app that I haven’t used in months. Is downright disrespectful and near predatory. There was also no warning. No pop up to show me that I was going to make a purchase, no redirection. Immediately loading into the app I was forced into a transaction. From what I’ve read of similar reviews this isn’t uncommon. The lack of respect I was shown is disgusting to me. Please be wary of this. I will try out this app some more but this is a really bad way to start off.
I love the content, but not the updates
by Sammich12 on 2017/12/17 22:34
I first got iHeartRadio on my old ipod on ios6 and I loved it. They had a setting where I could explore music or listen to mostly the same stuff. They did away with that and I miss it. Since then they’ve made the sleep timer harder to access, and everytime I open the app I’m baraged with an ad to try to upgrade to a paid version. I don’ mind seeing that maybe once a week, but I’m using other apps more because I get this annoying self add every time I open the app. It’s also harder to find the most recent radio stations I listen to. It keeps getting harder and harder with the new updates. Lastly, I love the play on start-up feature, but lately it doesn’t work (even when turned on in the settings) probably because of the ad I have to close out of. I’ve dug out my old ipod and I now mostly listen to iHeartRadio from that with whatever version ios6 can handle
Good but could be better
by RyanDred on 2017/11/16 01:15
Honestly, this app is better than pandora. However, my main two issues with it are the dislike feature and the song selections when you choose a specific band or artist. 1. Dislike feature: The problem with it is that if you click the dislike button on a song, that same song will keep coming back later until you’ve disliked it 3-4 times. Then after about a month it’ll come back again 2. Band/artist song selection: My major issues with this feature is that when you choose a band you want to listen to, the app will play almost anything but that band/artist. For example, if you choose fallout boy the app will play a fallout boy song once in every ten songs or so. Therefore what is the point in being able to select an artist. Now I’m not saying I don’t want to hear things outside of the band/artist I have chosen, however, it would be nice to hear the chosen band/artist at least every other song or so.
I do love the radio options

Although there are a few things I feel that could be better. I feel like skipping songs shouldn’t be an exclusive thing only paid membership people can do an unlimited amount of times, cause on the radio station that is titled my name’s favorites, a lot of stuff is mixed in there that I don’t actually listen to. And also, despite giving them the thumbs down, they reappear again. What’s the point of giving that song a thumbs down if it’s just going to show up again? I know I’m nitpicky, but these are things I feel that could make the experience better for the users that can not afford a membership or a subscription. Cause right now I cannot work and I wanna listen to music how I want to...and that’s skipping over stuff I don’t like to get to what I do like.
Love/Annoyed

I love iHeartRadio 99.9 KSAB the best tejano music choices especially those who live on boarders of Texas because all you hear is music from Mexico (for those who like that music is great ) although born and raise with tejano/conjunto prefer 99.9 KSAB station I can have your station on all day and all night but....I never hear any stories from our Texas musicians from our original State “Texas” all I hear is other musicians from other states or countries on how they started there music which I hardly hear their kind of music on your station and I get annoyed when the same story is on night after night so if you read this and knowing I am a big fan of iHeartRadio 99.9 from Robstown Texas please get this message to the station I want to hear how Intocable or Little Joe or Elida Reyna and so on and so on started as musicians ...supporting our local and getting to know our famous musicians that are rocking the USA as we speak ...thank you
In A World Where Danger Is Everywhere...
by Pastorlarry on 2018/11/07 19:10
I was a subscriber to a popular satellite radio company who shall remain nameless. 🤔🤷‍♂️😂 Well, I found myself in between jobs and needing to find a way to stay caught up on what was going on in the worlds of sports, current world events, and the like. I had downloaded the iHeart Radio iPhone application a few years ago, but I never used it. Actually, I had forgotten about it due to the metal plate in my head negatively reacting to the use of my microwave when preparing my burritos. (My bowels would release and I would forget who I was for about an hour or so.) Anyway, I decided to utilize the application so as to experiment with and experience the full effects of the frequently promoted pleasure of said application. I must say that I was quite amazed at the vast and diverse selections at my fingertips! I am very thankful for the opportunity to listen to my favourite programs! I give this application 4 stars due to the excellence in which they approach this stubborn, never say die medium known as ”Radio.” Download it now and find out what you are missing! Also, if you too have a metal plate in your head, your reception will increase by at least 80%! iHeart radio and unlimited data...it is like heaven on earth, it is like Ireland without the pipe bombs. It is 🎯💯 GOLD!
Used to work better
by OriginalDino on 2017/11/28 19:57
Before the last update, iHeartRadio would resume the last station I was listening to when it connected with my car’s bluetooth. After the previous update, I started having to hit the channel down button on my steering wheel to get it to start playing. Fine, whatever. But since the last update even that no longer works; I have to open the app and manually tap the specific station I want. Every. Single. Time. Also, since the last update, every time I start the station, I get a 30-second video ad. Uh, a VIDEO ad, on iHeart RADIO? Seems a bit self-defeating, especially since many of the video ads have no audio indication of what they are advertising. So I’ve just learned to turn the audio down to zero when first starting, until the word ADVERTISEMENT goes away from my radio display. I tried iHeartAuto once, thinking to would be better suited to what I wanted, but that app was completely hopeless.
Fantastic Music
by MillionsLost on 2019/04/17 01:30
I have used iHeart Radio for about 3 years. I never have a problem finding the music I am interested in. The selection of live radio stations and genres is fabulous. I have lived in three different Countries besides the U.S. and it is fun to be able to find a “local station” from where I used to reside. iHeart makes it possible for me to stay current with the artists from these small Countries. This past weekend I went on a road trip through mountains. There were many places that Wi-Fi and even LTE were not available. iHeart radio continued playing through many of these places. Even when the radio stations on my radio weren’t playing. It really did make the trip better, having my favorite music along for the drive! Thanks iHeart!
Used to be great.

I’ve been having problems with the app as of recently. Radio stations work great but when listening to podcast, that’s where the problems start. First the playback order, I prefer to listen from old to newer ones just in case of two part episodes. Second after each episode I have to reopen the app to play the next episode since the app shuts down after ending an episode. And last the ads, it’s understandable why ads are needed but when you hear the same 30 second ad for 3 minutes straight and then again for another 1 or 2 when another episode starts. It gets really annoying. I have contacted them and got the general response of thanks for bringing it to their attention. This has been going on for almost 2 months. So now I’m stuck listening to out of order stories not understanding what is going on. Also the discontinuation of the watch app. It was better than using the native play to control the stations being played.
Don’t waste your money
by Lilmama88888888 on 2018/02/06 14:59
This app isn’t even worth downloading the free version, definitely don’t throw your money away for the paid version. 30% of the time I can’t get anything to load on here. When I actually can get it to work, it takes about 3 minutes to load. It rarely remembers where I left off on the podcasts. For example, right now, when it started up, after 3 minutes of waiting, it started playing a podcast I had already listened to. I kept trying to go to the Podcast I had already listened to about half of. The circle around the play button would go around and around for about 4 minutes and then it would go back to the previous podcast. After about 8 tried and wasting 20 minutes, it finally played the one I wanted, but started back over at the beginning, I had to spend another 5 minutes figuring out where I left off. There are so many other places to listen to music and podcasts, go elsewhere, unless you like constantly wasting 20 minutes of your day waiting for things to load.
Lousy App with Inconsistent Content
by ChiTownDave on 2019/06/04 20:07
They keep making this app worse! Now the app has to be restarted nearly every time I stop pause a channel. I can't help but wonder if they release updates as frequently as they do so that their app has more stars than it should. How about adding an option to nag screen of "Never" and making the default start screen "My Stations." Even trying to launch from the widget does not work as the app keeps forgetting my recent stations. I'd give it ZERO stars if I could. They took a buggy app that crashes, and introduced startup/channel change advertisements that delay getting to the program. It seems like every update makes this app perform worse. The newest version of app will just stop playing at the top and top and/or bottom of the hour. Further, the app once again fails to resume following a phone call. The widget also fails to play the station. Further, the app keeps forgetting recently played stations! More important is that channels like WLS are running commercials when the show has resumed for over-the-air listeners (that's assuming the stream is working at all). Further, app stops playing content for no apparent reason even while connected to WiFi. When tested against iheartradio on the computer (using same connection) the stream is playing on the computer, so the problem is with the app. Luckily, the content I enjoy is not limited to Clear Channel stations. Clear Channel should hire competent developers.
So many new problem
by Clarence kidney420 on 2018/10/06 19:23
Since the last update the app has been going crazy I pay monthly every month and it switches songs in the middle of listening to a song volume goes up and down like crazy and you can never find a number to talk to a person it makes me not want to pay with card monthly fee tried the free one does the same thing I would’ve given five stars but the new update messed it all up. They just keep saying it’s going to be fixed by their developers but they are not fixing it it has been almost 2 months paying $15 a month and they still have not even change thing and the only thing that they said was that they were working on it it’s all bull they don’t care about the people paying money the only way to get in touch with them is by email don’t waste your money they are as stupid as most people are these days horrible customer service maybe if they fix my radio station correctly I will give them a better review to be continued ?
Ridiculous amount of commercials...what a joke!
by Aposaki on 2020/01/14 16:29
So I had tried out iHeartRadio a few years ago when I was feeling nostalgic for my old Cleveland market radio stations. The trial was short lived, as the first time I booted up the app, it played several commercials before even playing a song. I saw where this was headed and immediately uninstalled the app. Today, feeling nostalgic again and with several years having passed, I figured hey, time to see if things have changed and give it another try! What a mistake. This time, I got ONE whole song, before it immediately proceeded to play five commercials in a row. I didn’t wait to see if it was going to play even more before it got back to the music. The commercials were not exactly short, either! So here I am, reinstalling the app and immediately uninstalling it, just like before. Guess things haven’t changed. I’m glad some people seem to get something out of it. I’ve gotten one song and about 10 commercials...what an amazing app!
Best app ever
by qweffhvf on 2019/05/31 20:52
I see a lot of reviews that aren’t positive about this app, yet I say there is no problems! Yes I know that there’s a lot of things you have to pay for, but there’s a lot of things you don’t. Like all my favorite channels, radio stations, and podcasts are free. I recommend this app for anybody Who likes listening to music. Also I was looking at my account and it gives me notifications whenever there’s a new song posted by One of my favorite artists and new podcast channels. I really like this app, and it kind of makes me feel weird that people are saying that it is a bad app. I mean how many apps give you a lot of free music? Not very many. Before I got this app I had to pay for all music, but now I get all my favorite stuff for free. #BestAppEver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ghosts Playing With My Phone??
by Tmama711 on 2017/10/28 11:57
I use this app every single day to listen to my local radio station morning show. I’ve never had an issue, always runs really smoothly, except for an occasional “dead air” or skip in the middle of a song. I don’t use it for much more, not even rating songs. Here’s my problem... I turn it off when I’m ready to walk out the door to go to work, and it randomly starts playing again. The app is completely turned off and closed. This happens several times a day. Even while I’m at work. I ended up deleting the app and reinstalled it hoping that would fix the problem. It didn’t. So I deleted it again to ensure that I wouldn’t be humiliated at work again by the random music playing from my purse. I download the app again because like I said, I listen to Elvis every single day but this is getting seriously old and annoying.
Loving “Classic American Top 40!!”
by Koffeeklick on 2020/03/08 18:46
Ever this app, its horrible! Now we need to login with facebook? Why?! And before while listening to iheart, if a song came on i really liked, id open shazam to capture it and share. But now, once i open shazam, the music on iheart completely stops, preventing me from capturing it. Shazam has been more than helpful, saying it has to do with the iheartradio app. But when i contacted iheartradio about my problem and joked if i can downgrade to the older version which worked perfectly, the only response i got was " no downgrade available". Thats it. No solution or anything.I emailed them again on 10/28, no response. Tried again a bit ago. Cant we go back to the old version, everyone hates this new update!!
App Issue
by Fjohn52 on 2019/02/28 14:31
For the third time, the app has gotten me to sign up for the $5.99 monthly version when I didn’t intend to. This didn’t happen ever until a couple of months ago. I pick up the phone to turn in the app and it asks for my thumbprint. Odd, but I do it. Then it says thanks for for subscription. There is no easy way to correct the mistake. It will let you cancel, but the charge isn’t reversed and I am stuck with it for a month. The first time, I spent a long time on the phone and email with Apple and PayPal. I eventually got the money reversed. The second time, I kicked myself for not having recognized it was happening again and I just canceled it and sucked up the $5.99 that I had to pay for a month of service I didn’t ask work. It happened again today and I am super frustrated. There must be something in this version of the app that is causing this because it never happened before. One had to go through a couple of steps to subscribe to the extra cost service.
Podcast Problems
by Sad/Angry @ Bump on 2020/03/13 03:46
This app is fine for listening to the radio but the podcasts are totally inferior to other podcasting apps. The ridiculous advertising of it being the #1 app for podcasting is infuriating. #1 because they force you to use their app for the content they offer. If you could listen to their podcasts on a different app plenty of people would. The most frustrating problem is that it frequently cannot remember where you left off. This is totally unacceptable for a podcast app. I absolutely miss when I could listen to my podcasts using the Podcast app on my iPhone - a drastically better product. I just went to use it again and it told me I was selected for a survey which I was looking forward to filling out. Of course clicking on it just took me to a website that said the survey was closed. That about sums up the quality of what this company is putting out (and then advertising is fantastic).
Use it all the time, but .....
by podcasterrrrrr on 2019/12/31 13:20
I am using this daily for podcasts that I follow. The functionality is nice. The coverage of content is awesome. No complaints on what the ap brings to the table. Two things that bother me, the first is the consistency. A lot of the podcasts become “unavailable” & can’t be accessed. I suspect that’s not always iHeart’s fault, but causes a lot of frustration. Number 2 is the ads. Ok, I could pay to get rid of them, but I won’t. I don’t have a problem that they are there, but there has to be more variety. They repeat the same three every break & the video that you’re forced to get through is the same two for months. There needs to be a better mix. Frequency (and timing) is annoying, but I get it. Just get a good bunch of ads and don’t play the same ones over and over and over. I’m really starting to hate Flo.
Too many repetitive commercials for radi
by Hagarpun on 2018/07/05 12:07
I like the app. I use the app for listening to my favorite radio station, WTKS 104.1. It can be glitchy at times, but I think it may have to do with cellular issues. The reason why I’m giving it 2 stars is because at every commercial break, it plays the same commercials over and over and over. I know the commercials played are a way to generate income for the app but it’s ridiculous how many times these same commercials are played. I personally will not ever buy any product or service from any company advertising on real radio because it’s sickening listening to them over and over. The funny thing is is that a lot of other listeners will complain about the app for this reason, on the air. Now, if I could pay the subscription to get more local commercials, I would pay for it not to hear the same commercials over and over and over. Are you listening iHeart radio?
So many songs I never wanted to hear
by LusitaniaAngel313 on 2017/12/20 09:10
So the only reason why I’m not ranking this 5 stars is my own favorites station. Before I had a pretty finite selection and I was cool with that! Now I’m flooded by songs I don’t really care for and it seems if I thumb them down, they return days later (example being Uptown Funk which I completely despise)! While yes the station will play some of the songs I do care for, once they switch to what they THINK I like, good luck getting my songs to play again. Also it annoys me when the same station flat out quits and won’t play anything! Like it ran out of content! Now I will admit this station has pulled some interesting surprises like pulling Jump by Rihanna to the station which made me happy as can be. I still listen wholeheartedly because where else can I blast CENTURIES into my ears? ;)
