Recorder
by i just cannot believe it on 2021/07/26 18:22
I use my tunein recorded music when I fly. After a year and half I I flew again. I found tunein pro no longer has my recording and I can no longer record . You took a great app that I paid for and destroyed it!
Great service, terrible app
by carribas on 2021/07/26 16:28
A great service with an awful app that really needs updating. The CarPlay integration is extremely unreliable, often not loading and/or requiring multiple taps to get stations to play. An Apple TV app is also long overdue.
Great app, buy pro
by Rich Daubner on 2021/07/26 15:40
Use it every day and worth pro app for 9.99 to avoid ads.
Use daily, but error with recent versions
by Steve-O-Rooney on 2021/07/22 16:49
Lock Screen Controls no longer work.
Récord stations? No more in Pro Version?
by Monob69 on 2021/07/21 17:38
I pay for this option before now they take out Way ? No es justo que ya no pueda grabar mis estaciones en la versión Pro👎🏿
The authors are very greedy.
by vasss76 on 2021/07/19 19:56
Your greed won't make you pay. Your greed will force me to use another application. I bought the PRO version on an American account. Now I am using a Russian account. I have the right to do this. But I don't want to see a warning every time, when I start the application: “Sign in with a different account”. It's none of your business from which account I log in. Please remove unnecessary warnings from the PAY version!
Wrong wrong wrong
by Jazz lover xl5 on 2021/07/14 03:05
Not happy. I purchase tunein pro years ago and c Recorded long hours of music from across the globe. The update has delegated all of my music and the record button is gone which I paid for. This is simply wrong.
Don’t bother indexing your Favorites in this version...
by patasseo on 2021/07/12 08:54
Each category under “Favorites” now displays the same thing: The *exhaustive* list of indexed stations, episodes, and shows — thus rendering the “Favorites” feature as useless. Please address this issue promptly to restore reasonable functionality to the TuneIn Pro app.
Settings issue
by ddm1965 on 2021/07/11 12:32
I set stream to lowest quality, but it still plays on standard, every time I have to change it manually, and WTH no more recording ? Why ?
I regret ever paying for this app
by Trout, Kilgore on 2021/07/10 08:19
Blindsiding customers with an update is a new low, whatever was the desired outcome after removing the recording, I truly hope it was worth losing countless fans. I do not recommend this app.
Took away functions and increased ads
by cyclopian on 2021/07/09 12:46
The STUPID ads will drive you nuts if you listen for longer than an hour. It never used to be so bad. ENDLESS ads! Of course you can go to a subscription, but this is for content free on a web site somewhere—do a little digging. Save yourself some money. Recording isn’t possible on a free tier anymore.
Please fix the app
by 2much2pay on 2021/07/01 20:35
I continue to pay for premium - but PLEASE FIX THE APP. This feels like a developer who knows they’ve hooked a bunch of people, and have the attitude of ‘deal with it’. The developers know what I’m talking about - drops, buffering, etc. Fix it.
Lots of slow loading / start-up issues lately
by ScannerJammer on 2021/07/01 08:32
What happened? Updates are great and all, but it takes way too long for streams to start now.
Fav Radio/Stream/Podcast App
by McSear on 2021/06/30 13:23
Tried all the radio apps + streaming music playlists apps. This app still gets used most. Sure, it’s slightly weaker on podcasts. Hey, the music services are GR8. Tunein seems to have the right mix for me. Certainly best news offerings above all. Reliable for 19 mos. I went Pro version. Good deal. #RECOMMENDED iPhone 8 running iOS 14.6

Tune In to the world‼️
by chanteco on 2021/06/28 03:34
Can't do without it! I can listen to any type of music anywhere in the world! And, a lot of international broadcasters don’t play commercials. When they do, and they’re local, they transport me there, even though I might not understand them. What's better than that?
Stopped applying app updates
by JosephAW on 2021/06/22 12:18
Stopped at version 17 to preserve my recordings and compatible with iOS 14.5. Annoying have to manually update all apps but yours. When all features are restored I’ll update. Version 14 works best with iOS 12 on my iPad with all features.
Tune-in add pre-roll commercials in this ad-free PRO version
by NYC9000 on 2021/06/21 09:56
It is sold as an ad-free version, explicitly stating that no pre-roll commercials will be added. Yet they do add pre-roll commercials. E.g., CNN Fareed Zachariah GPS, June 20, 2021 podcast episode.
Slow Loading / Resets / Multi-episode playback hangs
by Jeff the Nuke on 2021/06/19 22:18
Deleted this app which was my goto podcast app. First, the app has for dome time now (weeks) takes 15-40 seconds to load Second, if I pAuse the app then work another app (like email) the app resets…I need to start over. Third, some podcasts come in episodically, like John Batchelor whose content is about 5-12 minutes long. At the end of these short podcasts the app will hang, spinning around and around. I have to tap 30 sec to advance. Killing the iPhone and reinstalling the app makes no difference. That was the bad advice of tech support. Very slow to load also…
Best app
by Damedeeso on 2021/06/19 14:10
I live very long in Germany and can listen to all my favorite Spanish radio stations, a blast !
Don’t buy Pro!!!
by Dave Loves His Wife on 2021/06/12 13:27
No refund for the people who bought pro for the recording option? Of course not. They kept the money AND removed recording. That was the only reason to pay the $10. Don’t reward this dishonest company with money.
Some radio stations just stopped working 6/10/21

Wi-Fi problem AGAIN
by Granpadavid on 2021/06/10 15:40
I gave been using this app for a long time. (decade?). Every sipo often an update comes out that prevents my use. The latest is now preventing me from accessing content unless I allow use of cellular data. I have paid a fee at one time to use the Pro version. I do not see why I should allow access to cellular data when my home WiFi network passes my ISP's speed tests. I most often use the app at home. If I am away from home I MAY use cellular data if necessary. However, I should have the choice. I do not want the service to mandate that I use my cellular data because they want me to. I do not have unlimited data. I do nor need it normally. TUNE-IN please restore my ability to use the service through WiFi and make sure future updates do not cause me to lose this ability again. Three times (at least) is demonstrating more patience then some thing should be granted to such repetition on this issue. Potential users: Think carefully about tjis issue and whether you want to be forced to use cell data all the tine to use this service. What will make me happy? Tunein fix the issue and make sure you are not playing info gathering games. As I understand here are other services available. Have I submitted a complaint to customer service from within the app? yes on more than one ocassion.
I want my money back
by DanVT on 2021/06/08 12:41
I can’t record, I have no “pro features”, what on earth????? How does this app exist? Refund everybody who paid for it!
STOP DOING WEIRD THINGS
by MMM86914554 on 2021/06/06 04:27
Every time this app gets updated I’m taken aback by the dumb things that get removed or moved around or broken. I love TuneIn and I’ve been using it for probably 8 years. I learned early on the secret was to not update the app. Today it stopped working and I was forced to update the app. Now you can’t get to the ‘currently playing’ screen. Like you can’t go there. It won’t let you see what you’re listening to. To browse music stations you have to click through 47 screens and then scroll to the very bottom of a cesspool of things trying to force you to subscribe to them and whatever they are trying to sell you. It shoved the ‘favorites’ up into this other screen where they used to be easily accessible at the bottom, where they were fine. They were fine at the bottom. I’m going to stalk the updates until they update to something less bonkers and then ride that less bonkers version for as long as I can go before it forces me to update again. At which point I’ll learn the entire interface is in glowing emojis and all of the screens are jammed into the bottom left corner or whatever they do next in their quest to just constantly mess with things. It’s like an 8 year old picking at a scab. Just for no reason. Just because it’s there.
Good only when
by AJTexasTron on 2021/06/04 14:39
This app is only really good when you’re stationary in the same WiFi all day or on your data all day...once it hops from different areas to other WiFi 5 gHz it keeps repeating a section of the radio feed for a good 15 secs on loop. I would have to either fast scrub or just restart the app...very annoying specially when you’re listening at a live podcast on interviews or games on. They need to fix this seems to happen a lot.
Very good with a few caveats
by tbor_App on 2021/06/04 07:53
Very good app overall. I can listen to most of my local channels (although some aren't available because the channel owners block them) plus any stations nationwide that have I discovered. TuneIn's own free music channels (with audio commercials) are pretty good themselves. The app's interface is functional but could be optimized a bit in my opinion. I paid for the Pro app version a while back so there would be no ads displayed, but now they've contradicted themselves and added a pop up ad every time you start the app up, nagging about buying their subscription plan. So much for 'no ads'. Also while I like the ability to record what you are listening to, it would be awesome if you could schedule various recordings like a DVR for radio. (There is the ability to set a daily alarm to play/record a single channel but it is rudimentary.)
Lost Recordings - now useless
by BussHuss on 2021/06/04 00:56
My recorded music is now gone with the update. Unbelievable. Boo!!!
It is a fail since recording features were removed.
by KCM291 on 2021/06/02 21:19
Don’t use the app that much since recording feature was removed.
no longer the pro version i paid for. record feature is now missing.
by ooOO00 on 2021/05/27 20:48
the record button is gone with the latest update. app is now worthless when hiking in remote areas with no cell or wifi as one can no longer listen to streams saved on device.
After many years, I’m out
by JohninCT on 2021/05/26 16:09
Have used tunein dice it was just an app in my browser. Then sine my first iPhone. Thanks for so many years, it’s been great. The loss of the recording feature is a killer for me. I need it, other apps have it for free, so I’m out. Otherwise, this is a great app.

by Spencer "Thunderball" Thayer on 2021/05/22 15:38
I bought this app. I should not have to subscribe to a monthly scam to use it.
Bring back recording
by lumber m on 2021/05/22 00:00
I got your app just for recording. Where I work I don’t get Signal on my phone. You guys should refund the $10 I spent for this app🤬
Upgrade Stinks!
by Rigellian79 on 2021/05/21 04:21
Your upgrade is garbage! Did you think no one would notice that you removed the ability to record? This is a step backward. I record stuff to play back later when I’m driving for work and now I can’t do that. Fix it, or I will be deleting this app.
Ok but old user interface & missing record
by wingate19 on 2021/05/20 12:27
Tunein used to be useful with a record function but they wussed out over potential lawsuits. Old fashioned user interface that was overdue for a remake 10 years ago. Eh...🤔

I had great songs I recorded that are gone. What is the point of paying for the pro app if you can’t save the songs?
Cannot find my stations
by elguanaco on 2021/05/19 00:41
Rev 3. So back in, i dont remember when, i had the free app. I liked it, but i disnt like the ads and the fact that i coulnt record. They advetised the pro stating that all the ads wuould be removed and other features woyld be unlocked, including the ability to record. I paid the pro version and today, i have ads and im unable to record. AND they wiped my recorded library clean. they claimed for LEGAL reasons. How about your customers? You dont care about LEGAL reasons to not defraud your customers? Everyone who bought the app should sue you. That will show you. Rev 2. I went back and downgraded to the old version that allows me to organize my stations. Sadly to do so, i had to delete this crappy new version, losing all my recordings. But at least i have my groups back. Rev1: V9.8 and up. I had all my stations categorized into different groups. Now i get all of them in one huge list. Not good. NOT GOOD AT ALL. Please fix ASAP.
no more recording

V 20.6.0 does not play my custom streams
by 72330 on 2021/05/08 03:57
After a day of running version 20.6.0, TuneIn no longer plays my custom streams. I wish I could go back in time, now I have to find something else to play my custom streams with.

by Beauregard's Mom on 2021/05/04 20:14
I’ve been a listener since the app first came out...I can’t remember the year though. I love that you keep updating and improving. Best app out there.
Sick of the tunein promotions
by JonInAtlanta on 2021/05/02 23:41
Years ago I paid for an ad free version, just because time has gone by and you decided to change how you monetize yourselves, doesn’t mean it’s now ok to hit me with a “start your free trial” popover every time I start the app. I paid for this already. You’ve shown yourselves to be dishonest frauds.
A small miracle
by Rational Actor on 2021/05/01 15:00
As a lifelong radio fan and one late come to ham radio, I never dreamed I’d get to listen to world radio with the greatest of ease and with unimaginable range of choice. Beyond even that, I’m able to receive the progressive podcasts that keep me very well informed (I don’t know if the app also caries right wing nonsense: hope not, but never checked). I’m aware that a paid version exists, but I believe I have other access to the few things I’d be inclined to follow. TuneIn is by far my most used and most valued app.
Where’s the tvOS AppleTV version?🤔
by UncleMac OS X on 2021/04/29 22:11
🤔🤔🤔Why isn’t there a version for AppleTV? I’ve seen it available on Roku and smart TVs but it would be so much better on both of my AppleTVs. 😊
Wi-Fi Recognition Broken AGAIN!
by SeekerJones on 2021/04/28 13:46
At least once a year an update is released where you will see the message: “Cellular data is disabled and no Wi-Fi network is available. Cellular data can be enabled in TuneIn Radio’s Settings.” App refuses to recognize it is connected to a Wi-Fi network, forcing you to turn on Cellular Data to play a station. Once the station is playing, you must go to settings and turn off Cellular Data. The station continues to play of course because it is connected to Wi-Fi network. Always assumed this is purposely done to data mine for some minimal Carrier and Location information, because the problem has occurred almost annually for nearly a decade now.

WARNING: Record feature removed
by MotorCityMike300 on 2021/04/24 23:38
After using Tunein Pro for a few years now, primarily for the record feature, the latest update no longer has the record feature present. And if you are updating an earlier version of Pro and you had recordings saved, everything will be lost! No warnings, no going back.
NOT so GREAT!! Now
by badolpuddy on 2021/04/23 19:47
*** I have changed my review *** NOT great anymore! Stay away! I bought this app to record.. now you can’t! I drive in an area without internet service so this was handy. It’s over now. It’s a shell of what it used to be. This is the ONLY music app you will need. I love the pro app due to the fact you can record. So much to choose from, Love it, Love it!!
App crashes upon startup sense recent update.

Recordings deleted without warning
by Angeles216 on 2021/04/13 16:23
I purchased this app for an ad free experience and the option to record snippets of radio. This morning I noticed tunein had deleted all of my recordings without giving a fair warning. I had recorded info from talk radio of events and info on musicians etc. This app has lost its charm along with its unique record option :(
Don’t download this app
by ben usc on 2021/04/11 05:27
I paid $9.99 then when I open up the app they want you to pay more money this app is just a scam so don’t buy it !!

This app just keeps getting worse
by jthwwk on 2021/04/10 15:21
First I can’t rewind or fast forward in news stations. Now I can no longer record either. They’ve taken an app that I’ve used for ten years and made it no more funtioal that a transistor radio. Don’t waste your money. I’m canceling, enough
Fix update please
by Titan user on 2021/04/10 04:48
Need to fix update. Sleep radio begins to play and then stops with seconds starts over with intro, stops and repeats cycle. Have used app for years and this is frustrating.
Tune-in

Tunein is Great
by Danofsales on 2021/04/02 14:07
I love being able to hear local radio when traveling out of State. It is crystal clear and all I need to do is click on the Station and receive the broadcast through Bluetooth on my vehicle radio. Great for podcasts too if you miss the live broadcast. Thank you for bringing listening to the Radio up to the present and into the future.
5 Stars!

Tunein pro since 2012 but
by Anvier on 2021/03/25 02:09
Paid Tunein pro in 2012 but now i can’t record, the app is a non-pro app, why tune in?
Scam alert!
by Tpm985 on 2021/03/23 06:23
I bought the pro version of this app already. I’m positive of that. I didn’t want to but I did it so I would at least have it and that’d be the end of it. However, now they’re charging a 10 dollar subscription on top of that? I get real sick of these app developers milking the users for every dime they can and this is a flagrant example of that right here. I will never ever pay another dime for this since I already paid for the pro app. I just don’t think that this is fair at all and we’ll see if this review goes up because they don’t usually allow reviews that are critical of the app, which that alone is nonsense. Sigh I just want a good app that isn’t gong to become a monthly payment for me. I just do not want that becoming another thing weighing down my bank account. If it were a one time payment and you own it like I had thought, then we’d be fine but clearly they milling the users dry.
No good anymore
by Craig Liszt on 2021/03/22 16:35
Does not record anymore and won’t let me log into my premium account.
Used to be good
by tdluke01 on 2021/03/18 19:36
Been using it for years and It’s always lagged (even on a 70mbit Wi-Fi connection) but now they’ve added commercials that trigger when you first connect to a station on top of whatever is happening at that time. Every time it lags now I get a an extra commercial inserted right in the middle of the show right over the the normal audio of the show (in addition to the normal commercial breaks). Sometimes it get so bad it seems like nothing but ads. I can’t recommend this app any more.
Tunein a mediocre application
by crazy crazy crazy 543to1 on 2021/03/17 01:38
1. Discontinuing NFL, MLB, and NBA has been a tremendous disappointment for me. 2. Please please please stop asking “do you love Tunein?” This is really becoming quite irritating to say the least.
Deleted all my recordings, I’m returning the favor.
by a student and reviewer on 2021/03/11 21:49
App update deleted all my recordings. Terrible thing for an app to do to a customer. Yes, they claim it was for legal reasons, but the app should have had a better legal team to help argue their case and even if they lost, they should have put giant red-flag warnings on the version of the app that did this. Going back over the app update history, it’s not even clear when this happened. I’m deleting tunein now (to return the “deletion” favor). Older review : Some stations don't work on cell network (repeating and skipping) making the app unusable. As an example kcrw news had huge problems with this app but when using the kcrw app directly all is fine so I know it is a tunein app bug rather than network issues.
Already paid for Pro!

Mostly works but Skips Backwards Occasionally
by Toddinva on 2021/03/10 15:35
I’ve been using this for years but for many months now, while listening to live radio, it will occasionally just skip back several seconds. Very annoying! Please fix. Also, what is the deal with live buffering now that recording has been shut down? Sometimes it will buffer for up to 30 minutes other times it won’t. Very annoying...
It’s Ok. Lacks dark mode
by Madalenc on 2021/03/07 08:08
This app was great back on the day when I bought it years ago but it feels like there has been no improvements in any aspect. It definitely lacks dark mode and more features, I know they want us to subscribe but I paid for this app many years ago and I see no benefit on having paid when people used to want apps for free

If I could only give NO stars...
by djcarlitosmorales on 2021/03/05 16:52
I was an early adopter to this app and now they have turned their back on me. For many years I was a faithful and loyal customer that did my best to spread the love by recommending the app to friends and family. I was able to record radio shows and amassed well over 200 recordings. Last week I made the mistake of tapping “Update All” in the App Store to get my phone current. With the update to TuneIn, I lost said 200+ recordings and the ability to record going forward. When I wrote to support they replied that they sent out an email, which I never saw and a notification every time I tried to record should have popped up to notify me. NO SUCH NOTIFICATION EVER POPPED UP! I am beyond upset. The record feature was the main reason I used this app. I hate how companies stray from their core features in app updates then say “sorry, it was for legal reasons.” Funny how it was legal when it came out and for 7+ years that I had the product, but now they claim it’s for “legal reasons.”
Won’t play

Can't TuneIn to 700 WLW-AM Cincinnati??? What gives? It's not in the directory.
Love it Anywhere
by DenverRod on 2021/02/27 14:16
Always there when I need it. Good sound quality. I listen to Nebraska college radio. Best station in the country commercial or college. I have had tunein for over 5 years. Couldn't live without it.
WiFi problem
by Rick2714 on 2021/02/24 03:29
Unable to use with my WiFi. Must use my cellular data only. Costs me extra fees every month. My other apps work with my WiFi with no problems. I only have problems with Your tune in app. I like your programs. Your app does not work with my WiFi.

STAY A WAY FROM THIS APP.
Paid product that pops up ads!
by Gene-Photo-Audio on 2021/02/21 17:20
Why is it that every single time I run this app to listen to something, first thing it does is pop up an ad for a monthly service I e told it 100 times I have no interest in. EVERY TIME an ad! One star
Best Radio in the internet worldwide. EPI That’s it.

Reviews said I could record , false advertising?
by ClaireFrances1900 on 2021/02/20 17:31
I purchased pro reading about recordings show up in my list, etc. within a few minutes I see you do not have the record feature now. You should make this clear. I asked for a refund immediately and I have not received it. I see no difference in free TuneIn from Pro now.
Failure
by Axilleast on 2021/02/19 21:27
I bought the pro app sometime around 2016 ...downloaded it again and it’s now a subscription service. Not cool.
What happened to the record option and all my previous saved recordings?
by ShimlaP on 2021/02/19 15:43
I used to love this app and in particular the option to record a live show to listen later without using up my data. Not only has the record option disappeared but so gave all my recordings!
rate it
by A mattocks on 2021/02/19 03:23
Lately a lot of bad issues,not recording, app keeps disappearing from my phone ,keep dong a hard reset.not good!
False Advertising
by Patisnotfat on 2021/02/19 01:53
The entire reason I paid for this app is the lack of pre-roll ads. I like listening to live sports, pre-roll ads mean you might miss an important moment. I’ve had the pro app for weeks and I still get the pre-roll ad every single time. Don’t waste your money, this app is a lie.
Disappointed
by Icy View on 2021/02/13 18:37
I regularly used the recording feature on this app. Now that the record button has been disabled, this app is useless to me.
Stupid premium

Great Radio Listening
by Durangodave123 on 2021/02/07 19:57
Everything for radio people. A great way to introduce people to radio. Streaming has gotten so much better. Been with Tune-In since the beginning. You can find anything!!
Devoted listener to TuneIn pro
by MissKitty99 on 2017/11/02 23:17
A feature that I would REALLY like to see added as an option in Tune-In settings is the ability to chose "anchored browsing" or "anchored scanning" when scanning down through my Favorites list. I often select a station, decide the subject being discussed is not interesting to me, and return to Favorites in order to continue scanning down the list. However, TuneIn returns me to the top of the Favorites list instead of permitting me to resume scanning where I left off. Otherwise, I love TuneInPro. I have been a user of TuneIn since probably 2010. As a radio aficionado, I love finding radio stations with live or repeat talk show programming all over the U.S. and cultural programming from other countries. Since I am a late night person, the ability to find at any almost any hour stations offering repeat programming is of great importance to me. Using TuneIn I can find the programs being repeated or recorded that I like at 3am ET, for example. The ability to record anything I am listening to live for playback later is also a huge plus for me, especially classical music concerts. Because of the variety of programming and the ability to RECORD (a huge plus!) available to me through TuneIn, other apps such as Pandora and iHeart do not interest me at all.
New Update Needs Some Work
by F3-Liverpool on 2020/07/29 14:12
TuneIn Pro has been working great but the new update is creating a bunch of issues.: *Recordings are now a sub-tab in My Library instead of a stand alone screen. Not a big deal but it requires extra navigation steps which matter with the final issue I mention. * Multiple times my shows just stopped playing and recording. My phone was on my desk in a charger untouched and connection was not dropped. I pick it up to do something and find it has stopped playing and recording (recording with sound off so I can listen later so I was not aware). * A big flaw is that you used to be able to scan back while something was playing live and pick up listening at previous moments within a 30 minute window (still works on recordings). You could do this with the 30 second forward/back buttons or just dragging the play line. This no longer works. * This happened with the last update but is still the case with the current update. If you are listening to recorded content with your phone locked and you pause it and then resume it, the recording gets dropped and it picks up the channel live. It happens if you pause using headphones, the screen, watch or some other device. This stinks because it requires you to pickup your phone, unlock it, go to the recording and restart it. With the new “My Library” button it takes one more step to get it done. 1st world problem but still a poorly designed aspect of the app and resume feature.
Always Updating
by rah711 on 2020/01/17 01:33
Excellent! Of all my apps.(and I have way too many) This Dev. has updated his app in an attempt to keep things fresh and new with more updates than any other app. I own. Now that says a lot about the Devs. intentions. That being said I don't understand the complaints. This is the best music app I have, and I own several. The customer service is second to none so rather than slam someone's hard earned work, which he/she obviously cares deeply about, why not drop a line to them first? Rather than immediately posting negs? I can appreciate it and many have it coming, but not this Dev. I know all of you have or had apps. that the Devs could care less about. They post it, sell it, and abandon it. Take the money and run, and there's more of them than people who truly care. That's why I felt compelled to post, because this one is one that really cares about the product. There aren't a lot and I hate to see someone that puts their whole into the product become grouped in with the money grabbers. Take Care.... UPDATE: Well, as they say all good things come to an end. I hated to see this app go the route of the subscription. This was and continues to be a great app, and the developers have been improving this app since it’s inception.
What a terrible shame!
by Brittany's grandmother on 2020/10/04 01:12
I loved my iTunes Pro. I listen to just one station, Family Radio. I’m realizing that it must have been the last update that changed things. I no longer have the “RECORD” option. I needed it and I relied on it frequently. What makes me feel angry is that they did this without notice I was one the first to buy iTunes Pro. There was a special offer and loving it as much as I did, I upgraded to the “Pro”. After that I had many interruptions, usually either just before the weekend or during the week end. At times it took a long time to get back going, until a really nice person told me how to fix the broken app, which is what was happening. For many years I had no problems until now. I really need the Record feature, I hope they will see the error they made and give us back what we paid for. Sincerely, Mrs. Patricia C. Rohan
STOP DOING WEIRD THINGS
by MMM86914554 on 2021/06/06 04:27
Every time this app gets updated I’m taken aback by the dumb things that get removed or moved around or broken. I love TuneIn and I’ve been using it for probably 8 years. I learned early on the secret was to not update the app. Today it stopped working and I was forced to update the app. Now you can’t get to the ‘currently playing’ screen. Like you can’t go there. It won’t let you see what you’re listening to. To browse music stations you have to click through 47 screens and then scroll to the very bottom of a cesspool of things trying to force you to subscribe to them and whatever they are trying to sell you. It shoved the ‘favorites’ up into this other screen where they used to be easily accessible at the bottom, where they were fine. They were fine at the bottom. I’m going to stalk the updates until they update to something less bonkers and then ride that less bonkers version for as long as I can go before it forces me to update again. At which point I’ll learn the entire interface is in glowing emojis and all of the screens are jammed into the bottom left corner or whatever they do next in their quest to just constantly mess with things. It’s like an 8 year old picking at a scab. Just for no reason. Just because it’s there.
Wi-Fi problem AGAIN
by Granpadavid on 2021/06/10 15:40
I gave been using this app for a long time. (decade?). Every sipo often an update comes out that prevents my use. The latest is now preventing me from accessing content unless I allow use of cellular data. I have paid a fee at one time to use the Pro version. I do not see why I should allow access to cellular data when my home WiFi network passes my ISP's speed tests. I most often use the app at home. If I am away from home I MAY use cellular data if necessary. However, I should have the choice. I do not want the service to mandate that I use my cellular data because they want me to. I do not have unlimited data. I do nor need it normally. TUNE-IN please restore my ability to use the service through WiFi and make sure future updates do not cause me to lose this ability again. Three times (at least) is demonstrating more patience then some thing should be granted to such repetition on this issue. Potential users: Think carefully about tjis issue and whether you want to be forced to use cell data all the tine to use this service. What will make me happy? Tunein fix the issue and make sure you are not playing info gathering games. As I understand here are other services available. Have I submitted a complaint to customer service from within the app? yes on more than one ocassion.
Plagued with intrusive ads. Now I also hate quicken loans for life
by Ralfberserk on 2019/12/10 17:32
I had this app for a long time, and I use it to listen to foreign stations occasionally, but since a few months this app became unbearable. When you open any station you’re welcomed with a high volume, high pitched, fast speaking, house flipping guru ad style from Quicken loans ceo: Jay Farmer. You would ask why now I know his name? Because its in every frickin ad! A botched remarketing algorithm must believe I’m desperate for a money loan because I’m literally bombarded with quicken loans ads every 5 minutes or less. Today it was the worst episode when I was literally flurried with 6 quicken loans ads in sequence not even one finishing before the next one started. That’s how bad this is. Now, to the listening experience: If you want to listen to a sports game, a concert, a news cast or something where you don’t want to lose the continuity, then look somewhere else because Tune In Radio will irritate you with an intrusive ad in the middle of the most interesting dialog from your radio show or maybe in the middle of your favorite song. Now I’m certain of two things: I will move to another app that treats the user with more respect, and I will never, ever go to quicken loans.
Sadly, goodbye...
by Lexicosm on 2018/12/22 15:04
TuneIn has attributes that might normally earn four or five stars, but I've discovered a deal-killer: The app won't function with my VPN (virtual private network) activated. I always protect my online privacy to the max, and this means encrypting all of my traffic, both incoming and outgoing, and masking my identity and location to the extent possible. If TuneIn won't work with VPN, does this mean the company is trying to collect data from my activity? The app tells me I have no WiFi connection, but I do, of course. Does this mean the developer is unable to handle encryption? Or, perhaps, doesn't want me to mask location or identity? I'm going to delete TuneIn from my devices after posting this review. I've found other online tuners that work okay for me with privacy protection enabled — myTuner Radio and Simple Radio are two examples. In these times, we need to protect our privacy from corporations who want to sell us and governments who want to repress us. That's why I subscribe to a good VPN (Tunnel Bear), I never use Google search and have zero contact with Facebook or its subsidiaries. Remember, if it is free, you are the product.
Error message on FAVORITES and BROWSE pages
by dvananda on 2019/12/21 11:06
I have loved Tune-in Pro for years, but ever since last week, my FAVORITE and BROWSE pages are completely blank, displaying only the message, “An error occurred, please try later!” I have been in touch with a very kind person on the support staff and tried all recommendations, to no avail. I can no longer log in or out because the settings button is gone, and I’m nervous that if I delete the app from my phone and reload it, it might not recognize my password or might corrupt the app on my iPad (which is still working normally). Has anyone else run into this problem? Any suggestions? I love the app but I appear to be at an impasse. UPDATE: I deleted and reloaded the app, discovering in the process that one of my FAVORITES, Classic FM, is no longer being offered through Tune-In, though the icon was still visible. My guess is that the app couldn’t reconcile the contradiction (a station there but not there) and did a little freak out. My favorite app is working again. Yippee!
Beyond Disappointing - Do Not Subscribe!
by JRHaendel on 2020/11/29 01:23
The app, as far as it goes, functions very well. The Premium Subscription, however, is complete junk and a waste of money. I won’t even go into my disappointment and frustration with the termination of the agreement between tuneIn and the NFL. No, I only want to talk about the fact that, as a Premium subscriber, I am getting pre-roll aand mid-roll ads for almost every station I listen to. I’m not talking about the local radio ads, either. I am talking about ads which are not heard on the stations over-the-air broadcast. When I tried to contact support, they pointed the finger at the individual radio station. That, in my opinion, should not be my problem. TuneIn lead me to believe that paying for the Premium Subscription would eliminate these ads. Otherwise, why would I even consider paying for the Premium service? There is zero value-add! Example: I tap to listen to a station in Florida. Before the station begins playing, I receive an ad for a Nashville-based hospital. And no, it is not unique to the station. This is unacceptable and had I not paid for a year in advance, I would definitely not have continued my subscription.
Awful sports broadcast quality and excessive advertising
by odessaranger on 2020/01/07 15:03
I can’t count the chronic, ongoing, repeated episodes where live sports event plays are repeated, often 3 or 4 or more times, hearing and rehearing the same few seconds of some game, while I know the live game has continued without any way to get past the repeated buffering errors. And then there are the over-the-limit advertisements, the same ads over and over and even when I change news channels - literally inescapable at times, seemingly continuously - thank heavens for the foreign channels. And this is PREMIUM service. Is there an alternative news source that can be paid without endless advertising? I deeply dislike TuneIn.
Banner Ads on the paid version, Buggy, slow to load
by Ohwrdami on 2017/10/01 07:33
Still with the F&ck!ng ads. I really think a lawsuit needs to happen. Just when you think folks have figured out how to make a stable ad-free version of paid software imagine my surprise to find rolling banner ads on my Pro/ advert free software. Besides being miffed with that the app is slow to load, it often freezes and fails to resume playing a stream after phone calls or when getting back into the car after running an errand. It just freezes. This app used to be really good, then they started adding crap no one cares about... I wouldn't recommend I only use it because I paid for it. You know what works? The banner ads they insist on putting in my app. $9.99 for the privilege if having a banner ad for home depot at the top of my favorites page with no way to turn it off. Support is none. So long as Apple allows these app developers to het away with this they will. Keep in mind while this app is "starting up" what its actually doing is calling home to Tune In to download banner ad content instead of streaming your music.
Makes for fun commute, but a few bugs
by Vike99 on 2018/01/07 18:36
Update 1/6/18. Just heard from tunein that “As of January 15th, 2018, we will no longer be offering audiobooks as part of our premium package. We hope you will come to enjoy our other premium content like 24/7 live streaming and commercial-free news with MSNBC, plus all the music channels and live sporting events throughout the year.” Sorry but replacing quality audio books with MSNBC? Ah, no. Still a good app, but content just took a huge hit. Pros: for $8 a month i get all NFL, MLB, and English football games. Plus current audio books. Ability to set events to my calendar. Get every radio station i can think of. Pause, record, go back to a spot, record, etc. been using the free version for years and now premium service - highly recommended for us commuters. Cons: several audio books cut chapters short. I contacted tunein and they acknowledged this was a bug being worked. NFL game commercials are replaced by mind numbing musak that really gets annoying with the large amount of breaks in the action.
An update for an icon.. really?
by vvts on 2017/12/22 18:22
Instead of rolling out an icon update ( which is meh , btw) why isn’t the buffering being corrected, or that constant , and I mean constant error message: “ We’re sorry. An error occurred with this stream. Try again later.” This happens daily. If I try to listen to a podcast, I get the error message. If I try to listen to a station, I get the message. This has been going on for months. The quality of this service has diminished greatly. Over the years instead of getting better it’s gotten worse. Also let’s see if this review gets posted. I submitted one a couple of weeks ago and it never did... Dec 22 Update... the developer sent me a prompt response. I appreciated that. I noted my concern and they responded back that they will look into it. Like is said I luv this app, had it for some years now, that’s why I was concerned. still like the old icon tho...:)
Needs Design Improvement
by EmerithV on 2020/09/17 09:36
Hi, I really enjoy being able to listen to all the stations that Tune In has to offer, i have the Pro version so that i can record what I want to keep. It works great! I just wish we could be able to save to our devices the recordings, to share the recordings with others. Also the app itself looks too simple it needs to look nice or fancy, Pandora did a great job in their app! Pandora looks super cool! I wish Tune in would redesign their app, but make it user friendly. There is always updates for bug fixes but there is never an update where there is an actual change of user experience within the app! Also very much needed and i request that there is a Dark Mode!!! I listen to the radio stations at night but my bloody eyes hurt even on low brightness on my iphone. Dark mode would increase the use of the app during the night. Thank you!

Steady erosion of features
by 71925 on 2020/10/07 15:15
I have had the “pro” version for years. It used to be functional - it allowed you to pause and rewind broadcasts, including things like CNN. And it enabled you to record them. Very nice. Unlike the freebie vanilla version which didn’t have that. And you didn’t have to listen to Tune In commmercials interspersed in the broadcast. Well, over time that’s all gone away. You can get CNN, but you can’t pause, rewind or record. You are forced to listen to the annoying Tune In advertisements. You can get NPR, and you can pause, isn’t that awesome. But you can no longer record! This must be one of the recent “bug fixes”. It’s hilarious, because the “record” button still exists. It’s just always grayed out!! Obviously the intent of this app now is to harass you into paying more to get the “premier” version, which seems to want to replace the “pro” version. Shoddy and disgusting, there is no way in h—l I will respond to such harassment. I will go somewhere else, or just do without.
For me, a bait & switch
by MJDmel on 2018/10/19 15:30
I purchased one year of TuneIn Premium for the “audible books” that worked out to less than $10/mo for me. As someone with a neurodegenerative disease, who used to read for a lucrative living, now living on a fixed income, both the price point and service mattered a great deal, as it is now difficult for me to read my 3 kindles. I also enjoy having MSNBC on radio; however, I have Comcast, so with the iOS app, I can listen to MSNBC as a “radio app” standing alone or while using other apps, just as with TuneIn. I would like to talk to TuneIn Premium’s Customer Service, yet it seems they would want me to do that. My Annual Renewal of TuneIn Premium is approaching in November and they stand to lose someone who could be a continuing, automatically, annually renewing customer, which is great for their books in competitive markets; however, my “customer service” tab in TuneIn Premium’s “settings” links to a blank service recommendation, which I had no option but to use. I cannot see any other method of contacting TuneIn Premium Customer Service, so I’m going out on a limb and guessing that the Customer Service Team who dreamed up this ploy is not as large as their marketing team, if not their economics forecasting But I hope and shall continue my pursuit of the TuneIn Premium’s mythical customer service. I shall update my review of TuneIn Premium’s Customer Service. 😳
Annoying!! Loses radio feed
by Curtainman on 2018/03/08 13:56
I record my favorite morning show because they have 15 minutes of break for every 20 minutes of show. I will start tune in recording when I wake in the morning. When I get in the car to leave, it only lets me go back 30 minutes or so even though it has recorded much more. If I lose the station (transitioning from WiFi to 3G taking more than a few seconds, for example), the station shuts off, stopping recording. You have a choice at this point. Listen to what you recorded so far or reconnect and listen live with no way to go back in time. Why can’t you start playback of live radio from the start of recording while continuing to record? Why can’t you continue recording when you lose the station and reconnect? These are tremendously annoying oversights.
Scam alert!
by Tpm985 on 2021/03/23 06:23
I bought the pro version of this app already. I’m positive of that. I didn’t want to but I did it so I would at least have it and that’d be the end of it. However, now they’re charging a 10 dollar subscription on top of that? I get real sick of these app developers milking the users for every dime they can and this is a flagrant example of that right here. I will never ever pay another dime for this since I already paid for the pro app. I just don’t think that this is fair at all and we’ll see if this review goes up because they don’t usually allow reviews that are critical of the app, which that alone is nonsense. Sigh I just want a good app that isn’t gong to become a monthly payment for me. I just do not want that becoming another thing weighing down my bank account. If it were a one time payment and you own it like I had thought, then we’d be fine but clearly they milling the users dry.
TUNE IN APP
by MacBeth on 2018/01/17 20:57
Used to be the absolute BEST! Audiobooks were included with the Premium app which is $10/month. I’m visually impaired and it was a wonderful thing. Now they have removed the Audiobooks feature completely. Additionally they disabled the ability to “download” a single book upon the announcement they would be discontinuing them, so they effectively disabled any way to save books I had read, or planned to read, or was currently reading and not had the chance to finish! This was a sneaky and underhanded way to end the Audiobooks feature - there were several partly read books I couldn’t finish in time, and because they disabled downloading at same time as announcement I couldn’t save them for later. Even though I was still paying $10 month premium. Now that they have removed their best feature, I personally find there is no further need to continue paying for the Premium app. Shame on Tune In !!!!
Once a great Radio app... not anymore
by chrisd7 on 2021/01/25 14:57
I’ve been using TuneIn Pro for many years and always enjoyed how well it worked, how terrific it’s recording function performed, how it let me reliably pause a broadcast and then continue it. Well unfortunately that high level of application quality has deteriorated with the past updates - so much, that It’s time to switch. There are two issues which cause my one star rating - both have been reported to TuneIn support and are being ignored (9+ months not fixed): Despite having the Pro version I am being entertained with a pop up screen asking me to subscribe... despite having clicked so many times to decline, the screen continues to come back. And then the pause function, which in the past reliably recorded the broadcast now often just drops the recording and starts the station fresh - that happens despite available storage space.
The app works great but I won’t subscribe after this month.
by meat_gun on 2018/01/16 00:40
The app works wonderfully but the two main reasons I subscribed to pro were 1) audiobooks (they had some fantastic titles and $9.99 was a hell of a deal to have access to them) and 2) football. After today audiobooks are no longer available and football season is over after this month so I’m cancelling. Maybe I’ll subscribe again when football revs up in the fall but it def won’t be a year round thing for me any longer. I don’t know if the issue with audiobooks was financial on the side of the publishers, not enough interests from listeners or both. Tunein never really advertised the feature very much, I sort of found it accidentally. Shame to see it go though.
Reception is usually good, but why did you mess with my college basketball?
by Pauljasper on 2018/03/03 01:37
I absolutely hate the new way games are shown with college basketball. Upcoming events used to show you everything that was going on, but now it only shows three? Why in the world would you change that? Horrible change. Change it back. I counted on this app to show me who was playing and what time. It no longer does that for me. It also only shows me a couple of live event so I can’t even listen to all the games I want to listen to. I don’t care about that top ranked team stuff. I want to know who is playing, who is on right now, who I can listen to, and not just put the top ranked teams are.
Use it everyday
by Kyokuru on 2018/10/31 23:43
I absolutely love this app. Every day, while at work, I listen to my favorite stations from around the world. Completely recommend it. There is one thing, though. In the watch app the volume controls don’t do anything. I have to switch to the Now Playing screen to control volume. I’m sure most people who have the Apple Watch will agree but won’t call you out on it because it’s such a small thing to change. I’m also sure that you guys want this app to be the best it can be and will hopefully fix this little problem. In the meantime, I’ll continue to use this app. I’ll be waiting! (^ー^)
Great Deal for Audiobooks
by Germany2263 on 2018/04/20 03:16
Updating review to five stars. I primarily use this app for the unlimited audiobooks. There is no better value for book lovers than their audiobook selection. Other services only allow a couple free books per month. With this app you can listen to as many books as you can all for the price of 7.99 - a bargain. Update: Still going strong and they have added many authors. I have the premium version not the pro. No bugs for me Update: They no longer provide audiobooks and it’s not worth the money for the other products they have. Very disappointing. They went from being great, to being just another internet radio station. Bring back audiobooks, market it properly, and you can make more money. The audiobooks should have been a boom considering other sites charge more per month and the quantity is limited as to what can be listened to. Great loss for listeners.
Getting worse
by Byronic_Hero on 2020/08/14 11:48
New update took away my ability to pause or rewind certain stations when I miss something. It also restarts streams instead of pausing when I use Siri or take out ear buds for a moment... dumb. Can’t seem to be able to record stations anymore either. No more functionality than a 1950s radio now, so what’s the point? Navigation to favorites is now getting overly complicated. If I press a button that says “favorites” I want to be taken to “favorites” and not another sub menu that requires further navigation to get to the actual Favorites. If you want good, intuitive, simple navigation, use car-mode all the time. Who cares if it isn’t as pretty, working good is better than looking good. classic case of app developers reinventing the wheel as a trapezoid... the 4 year app old version on my backup phone is far superior to this app now
Indispensable except...
by ColorBandit on 2019/12/13 17:57
My favorite radio app because I can get the stations and podcasts I want all in one app. It remembers my sign in and saves me from the inconvenience of having to log in repeatedly like other radio apps do. I have been a user for several years now and there is one BIG bug that continues through version to version. This app has no buffer. When the signal (WiFi mostly) gets weak, the app goes into a repeat loop and gets stuck there. If I’m doing chores in the yard and move in and out of range for just a few seconds, the content gets stuck in a 10 second or so loop. I have to quit the program and restart it to restore the stream. It’s the ONLY audio app I have that does this Fix this problem and you will have a world-class app. Please.
iOS 13 Volume Control Defect
by SwankPeRFection on 2019/09/28 19:50
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FIX THE VOLUME BAR DEFECT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Your latest updated today causes the volume control bar to continuously show after adjustment when playing back via AirPods. It never goes away. You have to lock phone or quit app and then it disappears as it should. Way to test the app before publishing it. 🙄 If you have your AirPods connected and you’ve used another app for playback before opening TuneIn, when starting a stream in this app, the playback happens via the iPhone speaker rather than the AirPods. Fix this. Everything else knows it should pipe via AirPods, but your app apparently doesn’t. Stop deleting negative reviews until you actually fix the issues!!! If you’re listening to music live and you take a call, the music will continue to cache in the background so that when you get off the call the music starts playing again where it left off. Problem is that after a bit of it playing like that, it’ll skip forward to the current live stream point and lose all the cached playback. I listen in AirPods so I don’t know if that’s playing a part in this, but it does it on cellular or WiFi, it doesn’t matter the connection, but it’s really annoying and needs to be fixed like ASAP.
Buffering is terrible-can’t recommend
by terrilee_nc on 2019/08/01 17:01
Edited review August 2019: This has been my favorite music app for years - I had to take away all the stars - all of a sudden, the buffering is SO BAD it’s unusable. My internet connection hasn’t changed, and other streaming apps work fine, so it must be TuneIn. I wonder if Pro users are being throttled down to pressure us into buying premium?? I can’t recommend TuneIn until/unless they fix this! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Previous Review: In my experience, TuneIn has improved tremendously since I first started using it. It used to buffer and crash constantly; now it seldom does. I favor it to listen to small university jazz stations with small broadcast range (even my local ones!) - I couldn't enjoy them otherwise. It's also handy to listen to my favorite NPR shows when I'm traveling. I haven't used some features, like recording, since I use podcasts to catch up on my favorite shows. I also usually listen to public radio so ads aren't much of a problem for me. My rating may be higher than most because I haven't used some features.
Broken! ***UPDATE***
by Lobosrsk on 2018/11/30 20:11
Update 30 November - The black screen issue has finally been fixed! I’ve opened and closed the app several times with no black screen issue. Thank you - changed rating back to 5 stars. Stopped working with the new version. As others have said, only get a black screen when opening the app. Deleted app and reinstalled, but will only work one time. If you close and reopen the app you get the black screen again. Pretty bad for a paid subscription. Perhaps development team should read the reviews after putting out a new release. Users are the best testers.
App believes I’m not connected to Internet
by LittlecubRoberto on 2020/07/18 14:20
I purchased TuneIn a LONG time ago. It may have been 50 cents on sale. It's been that long. So I have seen this product evolve to what it is now. Update: TuneIn is definitely much better than it has been in many years But there is a nagging bug that continues to frustrate me. It thinks I am offline! This strictly happens on Cellular data connections. Like many bugs, it happens once in a while. I will walk out of my house to exercise while listening to music and most of the times, the handoff to cellular data is seamless. But about once a week, it will not work. The home screen says “Browse not available while offline.. Please connect to the Internet”. The Favorites says “Request failed: forbidden (403)”. Closed the app. Reinstalled. Updated. Still behaves the same. Only solution is to reboot the phone which is a nuisance. Shouldnt have to reboot my phone because this app misbehaves. I already contacted support and they basically said if works after reboot it is fine. What?? Please do something about this. I am sure i am not the only one with issue. iPhone 11. iOS 13.5. Tunein 18.5
Favorite/ no more
by JJ⚡ on 2018/01/15 02:38
I have been a long time subscriber to this app and have loved everything about it. A little buggy here and there but not that bad. I listen to audiobooks while working 6 days a week. I go through 10 plus books a month and love being able to browse through the selection to pick what I find interesting. THEN YOU HAD TO GO AND RUIN THE BEST APP IVE EVER USED! No words can describe how disappointed I am you decided to cancel audiobook content on Jan. 15. I would happily pay a higher monthly fee to continue with my subscription but after two emails to support asking why tunein is going away from audiobooks the only answer I can get is “audiobook content will no longer be available after Jan 15 we hope you continue to use the many blah blah blah” if tunein brings back audiobooks and even for a higher subscription I’ll be back. But I’m out now.
Used TuneIn for Years - Kinda Like It But
by EEINPTN on 2019/09/24 17:25
Downgrading my original review because I’ve never subscribed to Tunein Pro and I keep getting charged for it, have cancelled it multiple times, but like really bad heartburn, the subscription and the charges for Tunein Pro keep coming back to my Apple account. Previous Review: Have used it for years. Wouldn't live without it, but in the last year, the constant requests to rate TuneIn when I was trying to start a show or "TuneIn" the news, has resulted in using this much less and one older iPad in our bathroom being thrown out the window. Fortunately, the iPad didn't land on anyone at the time. These constant requests for sign-ins and ratings are clearly hazardous and, the results, in terms of app functionality, reliability and features are made meaningless by this kind of disingenuous and, fundamentally, dishonest approach to surveys.
Dishonest sneaky liars
by itune1 on 2020/01/18 21:31
I bought this app years ago when it was useful. For an extra amount I bought a one time pro upgrade that let me make recordings. The last time I got a new phone and updated the app apparently I was moved to a different pro version that charges 9.99 per month. Once upon a time you could listen to a decent number of radio stations. I suppose the iHeart companies forced most stations on their app so tough luck TuneIn, but it’s really low down to trick long time customers into something they never wanted. Also shame on Apple. I just discovered this reoccurring charge on my card. Apple should be emailing me my subscriptions each month. Of course if Tim Cook is comfortable with using the equivalent of slave labor from Asia, I doubt he cares that a company is using the Apple ecosystem to rip off senior citizens. Beware of purchasing this app.
Getting better but not there yet
by Jean R on 2018/07/14 19:29
You’ve added a new feature. Scanning through programs on, for example, Jazz 88. There’s a scanning feature instead of letting you pause and then go back and listen again where you left off. If you get a phone call or posit for any length of time you lose your place. Not fond of this feature. I’m downgrading to three stars Also, I’ve been trying to add new favorite channels or stations but for some reason it will not allow me to do this. I cannot delete any stations from favorites either. This app is getting worse instead of better.
Great App by MAJ
by An Old New Yorker on 2018/03/23 22:21
I love the functionality of this radio application. While in NewYork City I was listening to the 1190 AM gospel station. Now I can take that station or hundreds of other stations back home with me. The the ability to use the "record," and "sleep timer" functions are a plus. However, I just had to add an P.S. to this review - the new icon is hideous. Your management should take the new logo and go get their money back. I'm surest I know I none of the people it is supposed to represent would be proud to be associated with it or even see anything in it that reflects them (unless they are on drugs). : - )
Killed the app with latest update
by Appleman84829 on 2018/05/01 16:25
I loved the app, until now. The latest update made the app unusable. Previous versions had 30sec back and forward buttons next to the play button when listing to a stream. That was extremely useful. You could go back or forward in 30sec intervals to listen to something again or skip through commercials if you paused the playback. Those buttons were changed to scan. Which changes the stream you are listening to similar to a scan function on a radio to scan through stations. I don’t want to do that while I’m listening to a radio station. Please bring back the skip feature. I paid for the pro version and I extremely disappointed that this was changed. I’m going to look for a different program until this feature is returned.
I am paying $10 a month and still getting ads!
by NurtureWarrior on 2020/05/27 05:10
I’m sick of it. I started with tune in Pro with the promise that MSNBC would be ad free. And initially they did a great job in filling the ad space with “news from earlier today”. Now easily half of every adbreak time Tunein is still running the F’ing ads. Sometimes they cut the regular programming early to go to these outbreak fillers. Sometimes the ads start and then eventually they get around to switching to the alternative news piece. Regularly they in that alternative news please a full hour and a half early. You don’t do your job - you don’t get paid.
Rewind and FF not available
by SRV_rulez on 2018/09/24 21:24
Paid for the PRO version and used this app everyday Monday-Friday for years. Loved the fact that I could pause it when listening to live radio if I received a phone call. Before this update I was able to rewind or fast forward after pausing and letting it buffer a little. Now that ability is no longer available. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Really hope you bring back those controls instead of the “scan” button that just skips thru different radio stations based off the content you are listening to. Please fix this. Thanks
Attention is lacking
by JD CC on 2018/12/19 03:33
I first purchased iTunes pro shortly after it came out and I thought it worked great on my iPhone.”5 stars” I really liked the app... BUT when the developer updated it and merged the record time and alarm together it really screwed up. Since that update I have been unable to say that or I should say to properly set the alarm because it never goes off regardless of what state the app is in, or turned on, or active in the background the alarm function does not work as it should or as it has in the past. NEEDS WORK. If it had not been for that I would rate this as an excellent app. WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT. The alarm function and record function should be separated.
Love TuneIn
by peter7809 on 2020/08/01 16:07
I have been a steady TuneIn user for years and compliment the organization for its commitment to providing the best radio and podcast coverage that I have been able to find and enjoy. I am an NPR and news junkie and one could not find a better host than TuneIn...in an instant I can listen to NPR here in San Francisco or switch to WWNO in New Orleans or WGBH in Boston or if I prefer can listen to CNN or MSNBC live. And when traveling I can instantly tune into local NPR and/or local stations whether is the USA or traveling internationally. Simply put they are the best thing that has happened to radios since the transistor radio.
Excellent but why can’t I rearrange the order of my favorite stations??
by FCP7Guy63 on 2019/08/27 10:45
I have been a devoted user of this software for several years now but it is frustrating when functions that were once standard seem to disappear. Currently I am no longer able to move my numerous favorite stations into the order I would like in order to organize them into like groups within the master favorites list. Now when I add a new station I can no longer edit the favorites list to drag it up into the grouping it should be in. This functionality was present only a couple of updates ago. Please could the developers bring this back? It was of great benefit and honestly such a no-brainer that I am surprised to learn it is no longer there. Also, for those of us who have exceptionally long lists of favorite stations, can it be made possible to see ALL of our favorites right away without having to scroll down the truncated list of favorite stations to select “view all” just to actually see all of our favorites? This is otherwise an amazingly thought out and invaluable piece of software that is a must-have!
Not happy with latest update ...
by slimbobwe on 2018/06/08 11:15
I have enjoyed TuneIn Pro for many years and consider myself an early adopter but the latest version doesn’t have the ability to go back in a broadcast in 30 second increments. That was a very useful feature for me because sometimes you miss something, or you just want to hear a section of a broadcast again. Other than that there still seems to be a problem with live broadcasts repeating themselves. Is that a buffering issue when sometimes a 30 or 45 second part of a show repeats itself over and over again? I’ll still use the program almost every day but these issues are VERY annoying.
Tune In loses ability to Record
by CharlieGS on 2020/10/02 12:06
Makes listening to radio very easy and convenient. But I am downgrading from 4 to 2 stars. Two complaints: when new iOS became available, Tune-In became buggy. Even when station is playing scheduled recording doesn't take place reliably. Also, I would like to see the ability to record happen based on time, in the background, and without the App needing to be open and playing. What's the point of timed recording schedule if you need to be listening to your program in order to record it. 2nd Update: Call to support about Crash trying to use Record Timer didn't get back to me after their first suggestion to Force Quit App which I had tried before calling support. Problem has now gone unsolved for months. 3rd UPDATE: Now 1 Star - Tune in was pretty good and useful to record shows during extremely early broadcast times. Over years “improvements” made it less so. Now October 2020 it is almost useless. It is just like every other radio app. early broadcast times. Over years “improvements” made it less so. Now October 2020 it is almost useless. It is just like every other radio app.
Used it be more stable and some poor design choice
by kandjar on 2018/10/23 03:29
I've been using the tune in radio for several years now, but I can't say I'm happy with the updates.... An annoying bug present for a long time still hasn't been fixed: - the "< 30" or "> 30" buttons have sometimes unexpected and unwanted behaviors, like for example: pressing "> 30" will just jump forward by 20 or 30 minutes out of nowhere... A stupid design choice: - when the Bluetooth speaker gets disconnected, instead of pausing the streaming radio, TuneIn just consider that you just decided to STOP the streaming, doing so cancelling all previously buffered track. Why? Especially with potentially some Bluetooth instability, it's really annoying... The iWatch support is way worst than before, why not keeping the 4 radio icons view? Allowing for quick change.... My final pet peeve is regarding the removal of the car mode (which happened a while back).... I listen to TuneIn a lot while driving and now I just cannot change station anymore... as it would require to spend a lot of attention to the app.... Please bring the car mode back!!
What changed????
by wanted to give a high review on 2020/10/12 17:02
I am an frequent user of TuneIn. I enjoyed it so much that I upgraded to the Pro version; however, I used to be able to record my favorite news shows. This was especially convenient if there was a schedule conflict with being able to listen to my shows live. But, I noticed with a recent app update, that this “recording” feature was removed. Really disappointed, truly disappointed, Without this feature, what’s the real need to having & paying for the “Pro” version? I wish the company would bring this option back. Until then, I’ll be searching for other apps that more so align with what I am looking for
A question
by bijlmersfinest on 2018/12/01 15:47
I’ve been using the free version of Tunein radio for years now and decided to buy the Tunein pro version yesterday. On the free version I cast it using google chrome cast to my speakers and it works all the time. Since I bought the pro version I don’t even see the “cast” sign in the app when I’m listening to music. What’s going on Tunein? From the information on the pro version it is stated you can cast your radio to google chrome cast but in the app there is nothing about that. Can you guys fix it or I’m deleting the pro version. What the hell!!
Deleted all my recordings, I’m returning the favor.
by a student and reviewer on 2021/03/11 21:49
App update deleted all my recordings. Terrible thing for an app to do to a customer. Yes, they claim it was for legal reasons, but the app should have had a better legal team to help argue their case and even if they lost, they should have put giant red-flag warnings on the version of the app that did this. Going back over the app update history, it’s not even clear when this happened. I’m deleting tunein now (to return the “deletion” favor). Older review : Some stations don't work on cell network (repeating and skipping) making the app unusable. As an example kcrw news had huge problems with this app but when using the kcrw app directly all is fine so I know it is a tunein app bug rather than network issues.

Recorder
by i just cannot believe it on 2021/07/26 18:22
I use my tunein recorded music when I fly. After a year and half I I flew again. I found tunein pro no longer has my recording and I can no longer record . You took a great app that I paid for and destroyed it!
Great service, terrible app
by carribas on 2021/07/26 16:28
A great service with an awful app that really needs updating. The CarPlay integration is extremely unreliable, often not loading and/or requiring multiple taps to get stations to play. An Apple TV app is also long overdue.
Great app, buy pro
by Rich Daubner on 2021/07/26 15:40
Use it every day and worth pro app for 9.99 to avoid ads.
Use daily, but error with recent versions
by Steve-O-Rooney on 2021/07/22 16:49

Récord stations? No more in Pro Version?
by Monob69 on 2021/07/21 17:38
I pay for this option before now they take out Way ? No es justo que ya no pueda grabar mis estaciones en la versión Pro👎🏿
The authors are very greedy.
by vasss76 on 2021/07/19 19:56
Your greed won't make you pay. Your greed will force me to use another application. I bought the PRO version on an American account. Now I am using a Russian account. I have the right to do this. But I don't want to see a warning every time, when I start the application: “Sign in with a different account”. It's none of your business from which account I log in. Please remove unnecessary warnings from the PAY version!
Wrong wrong wrong
by Jazz lover xl5 on 2021/07/14 03:05
Not happy. I purchase tunein pro years ago and c Recorded long hours of music from across the globe. The update has delegated all of my music and the record button is gone which I paid for. This is simply wrong.
Don’t bother indexing your Favorites in this version...
by patasseo on 2021/07/12 08:54
Each category under “Favorites” now displays the same thing: The *exhaustive* list of indexed stations, episodes, and shows — thus rendering the “Favorites” feature as useless. Please address this issue promptly to restore reasonable functionality to the TuneIn Pro app.
Settings issue
by ddm1965 on 2021/07/11 12:32
I set stream to lowest quality, but it still plays on standard, every time I have to change it manually, and WTH no more recording ? Why ?
I regret ever paying for this app
by Trout, Kilgore on 2021/07/10 08:19
Blindsiding customers with an update is a new low, whatever was the desired outcome after removing the recording, I truly hope it was worth losing countless fans. I do not recommend this app.
Took away functions and increased ads
by cyclopian on 2021/07/09 12:46
The STUPID ads will drive you nuts if you listen for longer than an hour. It never used to be so bad. ENDLESS ads! Of course you can go to a subscription, but this is for content free on a web site somewhere—do a little digging. Save yourself some money. Recording isn’t possible on a free tier anymore.
Please fix the app
by 2much2pay on 2021/07/01 20:35
I continue to pay for premium - but PLEASE FIX THE APP. This feels like a developer who knows they’ve hooked a bunch of people, and have the attitude of ‘deal with it’. The developers know what I’m talking about - drops, buffering, etc. Fix it.
Lots of slow loading / start-up issues lately
by ScannerJammer on 2021/07/01 08:32
What happened? Updates are great and all, but it takes way too long for streams to start now.
Fav Radio/Stream/Podcast App
by McSear on 2021/06/30 13:23
Tried all the radio apps + streaming music playlists apps. This app still gets used most. Sure, it’s slightly weaker on podcasts. Hey, the music services are GR8. Tunein seems to have the right mix for me. Certainly best news offerings above all. Reliable for 19 mos. I went Pro version. Good deal. #RECOMMENDED iPhone 8 running iOS 14.6

Tune In to the world‼️
by chanteco on 2021/06/28 03:34
Can't do without it! I can listen to any type of music anywhere in the world! And, a lot of international broadcasters don’t play commercials. When they do, and they’re local, they transport me there, even though I might not understand them. What's better than that?
Stopped applying app updates
by JosephAW on 2021/06/22 12:18
Stopped at version 17 to preserve my recordings and compatible with iOS 14.5. Annoying have to manually update all apps but yours. When all features are restored I’ll update. Version 14 works best with iOS 12 on my iPad with all features.
Tune-in add pre-roll commercials in this ad-free PRO version
by NYC9000 on 2021/06/21 09:56
It is sold as an ad-free version, explicitly stating that no pre-roll commercials will be added. Yet they do add pre-roll commercials. E.g., CNN Fareed Zachariah GPS, June 20, 2021 podcast episode.
Slow Loading / Resets / Multi-episode playback hangs
by Jeff the Nuke on 2021/06/19 22:18
Deleted this app which was my goto podcast app. First, the app has for dome time now (weeks) takes 15-40 seconds to load Second, if I pAuse the app then work another app (like email) the app resets…I need to start over. Third, some podcasts come in episodically, like John Batchelor whose content is about 5-12 minutes long. At the end of these short podcasts the app will hang, spinning around and around. I have to tap 30 sec to advance. Killing the iPhone and reinstalling the app makes no difference. That was the bad advice of tech support. Very slow to load also…
Best app

Don’t buy Pro!!!
by Dave Loves His Wife on 2021/06/12 13:27
No refund for the people who bought pro for the recording option? Of course not. They kept the money AND removed recording. That was the only reason to pay the $10. Don’t reward this dishonest company with money.

Wi-Fi problem AGAIN
by Granpadavid on 2021/06/10 15:40
I gave been using this app for a long time. (decade?). Every sipo often an update comes out that prevents my use. The latest is now preventing me from accessing content unless I allow use of cellular data. I have paid a fee at one time to use the Pro version. I do not see why I should allow access to cellular data when my home WiFi network passes my ISP's speed tests. I most often use the app at home. If I am away from home I MAY use cellular data if necessary. However, I should have the choice. I do not want the service to mandate that I use my cellular data because they want me to. I do not have unlimited data. I do nor need it normally. TUNE-IN please restore my ability to use the service through WiFi and make sure future updates do not cause me to lose this ability again. Three times (at least) is demonstrating more patience then some thing should be granted to such repetition on this issue. Potential users: Think carefully about tjis issue and whether you want to be forced to use cell data all the tine to use this service. What will make me happy? Tunein fix the issue and make sure you are not playing info gathering games. As I understand here are other services available. Have I submitted a complaint to customer service from within the app? yes on more than one ocassion.
I want my money back
by DanVT on 2021/06/08 12:41
I can’t record, I have no “pro features”, what on earth????? How does this app exist? Refund everybody who paid for it!
STOP DOING WEIRD THINGS
by MMM86914554 on 2021/06/06 04:27
Every time this app gets updated I’m taken aback by the dumb things that get removed or moved around or broken. I love TuneIn and I’ve been using it for probably 8 years. I learned early on the secret was to not update the app. Today it stopped working and I was forced to update the app. Now you can’t get to the ‘currently playing’ screen. Like you can’t go there. It won’t let you see what you’re listening to. To browse music stations you have to click through 47 screens and then scroll to the very bottom of a cesspool of things trying to force you to subscribe to them and whatever they are trying to sell you. It shoved the ‘favorites’ up into this other screen where they used to be easily accessible at the bottom, where they were fine. They were fine at the bottom. I’m going to stalk the updates until they update to something less bonkers and then ride that less bonkers version for as long as I can go before it forces me to update again. At which point I’ll learn the entire interface is in glowing emojis and all of the screens are jammed into the bottom left corner or whatever they do next in their quest to just constantly mess with things. It’s like an 8 year old picking at a scab. Just for no reason. Just because it’s there.
Good only when
by AJTexasTron on 2021/06/04 14:39
This app is only really good when you’re stationary in the same WiFi all day or on your data all day...once it hops from different areas to other WiFi 5 gHz it keeps repeating a section of the radio feed for a good 15 secs on loop. I would have to either fast scrub or just restart the app...very annoying specially when you’re listening at a live podcast on interviews or games on. They need to fix this seems to happen a lot.
Very good with a few caveats
by tbor_App on 2021/06/04 07:53
Very good app overall. I can listen to most of my local channels (although some aren't available because the channel owners block them) plus any stations nationwide that have I discovered. TuneIn's own free music channels (with audio commercials) are pretty good themselves. The app's interface is functional but could be optimized a bit in my opinion. I paid for the Pro app version a while back so there would be no ads displayed, but now they've contradicted themselves and added a pop up ad every time you start the app up, nagging about buying their subscription plan. So much for 'no ads'. Also while I like the ability to record what you are listening to, it would be awesome if you could schedule various recordings like a DVR for radio. (There is the ability to set a daily alarm to play/record a single channel but it is rudimentary.)
Lost Recordings - now useless

My recorded music is now gone with the update. Unbelievable. Boo!!!
It is a fail since recording features were removed.

Don’t use the app that much since recording feature was removed.
no longer the pro version i paid for. record feature is now missing.
by ooOO00 on 2021/05/27 20:48
the record button is gone with the latest update. app is now worthless when hiking in remote areas with no cell or wifi as one can no longer listen to streams saved on device.
After many years, I’m out
by JohninCT on 2021/05/26 16:09
Have used tunein dice it was just an app in my browser. Then sine my first iPhone. Thanks for so many years, it’s been great. The loss of the recording feature is a killer for me. I need it, other apps have it for free, so I’m out. Otherwise, this is a great app.

I got your app just for recording. Where I work I don’t get Signal on my phone. You guys should refund the $10 I spent for this app🤬
Upgrade Stinks!
by Rigellian79 on 2021/05/21 04:21
Your upgrade is garbage! Did you think no one would notice that you removed the ability to record? This is a step backward. I record stuff to play back later when I’m driving for work and now I can’t do that. Fix it, or I will be deleting this app.
Ok but old user interface & missing record
by wingate19 on 2021/05/20 12:27
Tunein used to be useful with a record function but they wussed out over potential lawsuits. Old fashioned user interface that was overdue for a remake 10 years ago. Eh...🤔

Cannot find my stations
by elguanaco on 2021/05/19 00:41
Rev 3. So back in, i dont remember when, i had the free app. I liked it, but i disnt like the ads and the fact that i coulnt record. They advetised the pro stating that all the ads wuould be removed and other features woyld be unlocked, including the ability to record. I paid the pro version and today, i have ads and im unable to record. AND they wiped my recorded library clean. they claimed for LEGAL reasons. How about your customers? You dont care about LEGAL reasons to not defraud your customers? Everyone who bought the app should sue you. That will show you. Rev 2. I went back and downgraded to the old version that allows me to organize my stations. Sadly to do so, i had to delete this crappy new version, losing all my recordings. But at least i have my groups back. Rev1: V9.8 and up. I had all my stations categorized into different groups. Now i get all of them in one huge list. Not good. NOT GOOD AT ALL. Please fix ASAP.

Sick of the tunein promotions
by JonInAtlanta on 2021/05/02 23:41
Years ago I paid for an ad free version, just because time has gone by and you decided to change how you monetize yourselves, doesn’t mean it’s now ok to hit me with a “start your free trial” popover every time I start the app. I paid for this already. You’ve shown yourselves to be dishonest frauds.
A small miracle
by Rational Actor on 2021/05/01 15:00
As a lifelong radio fan and one late come to ham radio, I never dreamed I’d get to listen to world radio with the greatest of ease and with unimaginable range of choice. Beyond even that, I’m able to receive the progressive podcasts that keep me very well informed (I don’t know if the app also caries right wing nonsense: hope not, but never checked). I’m aware that a paid version exists, but I believe I have other access to the few things I’d be inclined to follow. TuneIn is by far my most used and most valued app.
Where’s the tvOS AppleTV version?🤔

Wi-Fi Recognition Broken AGAIN!
by SeekerJones on 2021/04/28 13:46
At least once a year an update is released where you will see the message: “Cellular data is disabled and no Wi-Fi network is available. Cellular data can be enabled in TuneIn Radio’s Settings.” App refuses to recognize it is connected to a Wi-Fi network, forcing you to turn on Cellular Data to play a station. Once the station is playing, you must go to settings and turn off Cellular Data. The station continues to play of course because it is connected to Wi-Fi network. Always assumed this is purposely done to data mine for some minimal Carrier and Location information, because the problem has occurred almost annually for nearly a decade now.

WARNING: Record feature removed
by MotorCityMike300 on 2021/04/24 23:38
After using Tunein Pro for a few years now, primarily for the record feature, the latest update no longer has the record feature present. And if you are updating an earlier version of Pro and you had recordings saved, everything will be lost! No warnings, no going back.
NOT so GREAT!! Now
by badolpuddy on 2021/04/23 19:47
*** I have changed my review *** NOT great anymore! Stay away! I bought this app to record.. now you can’t! I drive in an area without internet service so this was handy. It’s over now. It’s a shell of what it used to be. This is the ONLY music app you will need. I love the pro app due to the fact you can record. So much to choose from, Love it, Love it!!

Recordings deleted without warning
by Angeles216 on 2021/04/13 16:23
I purchased this app for an ad free experience and the option to record snippets of radio. This morning I noticed tunein had deleted all of my recordings without giving a fair warning. I had recorded info from talk radio of events and info on musicians etc. This app has lost its charm along with its unique record option :(
Don’t download this app

I paid $9.99 then when I open up the app they want you to pay more money this app is just a scam so don’t buy it !!

First I can’t rewind or fast forward in news stations. Now I can no longer record either. They’ve taken an app that I’ve used for ten years and made it no more funtioal that a transistor radio. Don’t waste your money. I’m canceling, enough
Fix update please

Need to fix update. Sleep radio begins to play and then stops with seconds starts over with intro, stops and repeats cycle. Have used app for years and this is frustrating.
Tune-in
by Skhill1963 on 2021/04/08 16:36
I love tune-in. the conservatives' point of view. excellent and it's free Amen ! Great programs Such as: Conservatives, Mark Levin, (The Great One) Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, Laura Ingram, Glenn Beck, Todd Herman, Ken Matthews, Todd Starns, Fox News Radio, weekends you have programs on gardening, electronics, financial & legal advice. If you get your fill of these, there’s Always Christian programs such as Endtime.com, Joel Ostein, TBN, Cornerstone, CBN, Oasis network you can get all your local channels. Last but not least you can get any kind of music that you love 60’s, 70’s, 80’s 90’s, classic country, todays country, Classic Rock, Jazz, Bluegrass & oh so much more...... & it’s all FREE.

Tunein is Great

I love being able to hear local radio when traveling out of State. It is crystal clear and all I need to do is click on the Station and receive the broadcast through Bluetooth on my vehicle radio. Great for podcasts too if you miss the live broadcast. Thank you for bringing listening to the Radio up to the present and into the future.

Scam alert!
by Tpm985 on 2021/03/23 06:23
I bought the pro version of this app already. I’m positive of that. I didn’t want to but I did it so I would at least have it and that’d be the end of it. However, now they’re charging a 10 dollar subscription on top of that? I get real sick of these app developers milking the users for every dime they can and this is a flagrant example of that right here. I will never ever pay another dime for this since I already paid for the pro app. I just don’t think that this is fair at all and we’ll see if this review goes up because they don’t usually allow reviews that are critical of the app, which that alone is nonsense. Sigh I just want a good app that isn’t gong to become a monthly payment for me. I just do not want that becoming another thing weighing down my bank account. If it were a one time payment and you own it like I had thought, then we’d be fine but clearly they milling the users dry.
No good anymore

Used to be good
by tdluke01 on 2021/03/18 19:36
Been using it for years and It’s always lagged (even on a 70mbit Wi-Fi connection) but now they’ve added commercials that trigger when you first connect to a station on top of whatever is happening at that time. Every time it lags now I get a an extra commercial inserted right in the middle of the show right over the the normal audio of the show (in addition to the normal commercial breaks). Sometimes it get so bad it seems like nothing but ads. I can’t recommend this app any more.
Tunein a mediocre application
by crazy crazy crazy 543to1 on 2021/03/17 01:38
1. Discontinuing NFL, MLB, and NBA has been a tremendous disappointment for me. 2. Please please please stop asking “do you love Tunein?” This is really becoming quite irritating to say the least.
Deleted all my recordings, I’m returning the favor.
by a student and reviewer on 2021/03/11 21:49
App update deleted all my recordings. Terrible thing for an app to do to a customer. Yes, they claim it was for legal reasons, but the app should have had a better legal team to help argue their case and even if they lost, they should have put giant red-flag warnings on the version of the app that did this. Going back over the app update history, it’s not even clear when this happened. I’m deleting tunein now (to return the “deletion” favor). Older review : Some stations don't work on cell network (repeating and skipping) making the app unusable. As an example kcrw news had huge problems with this app but when using the kcrw app directly all is fine so I know it is a tunein app bug rather than network issues.
Already paid for Pro!

Mostly works but Skips Backwards Occasionally
by Toddinva on 2021/03/10 15:35
I’ve been using this for years but for many months now, while listening to live radio, it will occasionally just skip back several seconds. Very annoying! Please fix. Also, what is the deal with live buffering now that recording has been shut down? Sometimes it will buffer for up to 30 minutes other times it won’t. Very annoying...
It’s Ok. Lacks dark mode
by Madalenc on 2021/03/07 08:08
This app was great back on the day when I bought it years ago but it feels like there has been no improvements in any aspect. It definitely lacks dark mode and more features, I know they want us to subscribe but I paid for this app many years ago and I see no benefit on having paid when people used to want apps for free

If I could only give NO stars...
by djcarlitosmorales on 2021/03/05 16:52
I was an early adopter to this app and now they have turned their back on me. For many years I was a faithful and loyal customer that did my best to spread the love by recommending the app to friends and family. I was able to record radio shows and amassed well over 200 recordings. Last week I made the mistake of tapping “Update All” in the App Store to get my phone current. With the update to TuneIn, I lost said 200+ recordings and the ability to record going forward. When I wrote to support they replied that they sent out an email, which I never saw and a notification every time I tried to record should have popped up to notify me. NO SUCH NOTIFICATION EVER POPPED UP! I am beyond upset. The record feature was the main reason I used this app. I hate how companies stray from their core features in app updates then say “sorry, it was for legal reasons.” Funny how it was legal when it came out and for 7+ years that I had the product, but now they claim it’s for “legal reasons.”

Reviews said I could record , false advertising?
by ClaireFrances1900 on 2021/02/20 17:31
I purchased pro reading about recordings show up in my list, etc. within a few minutes I see you do not have the record feature now. You should make this clear. I asked for a refund immediately and I have not received it. I see no difference in free TuneIn from Pro now.
Failure

What happened to the record option and all my previous saved recordings?
by ShimlaP on 2021/02/19 15:43
I used to love this app and in particular the option to record a live show to listen later without using up my data. Not only has the record option disappeared but so gave all my recordings!

by A mattocks on 2021/02/19 03:23
Lately a lot of bad issues,not recording, app keeps disappearing from my phone ,keep dong a hard reset.not good!
False Advertising
by Patisnotfat on 2021/02/19 01:53
The entire reason I paid for this app is the lack of pre-roll ads. I like listening to live sports, pre-roll ads mean you might miss an important moment. I’ve had the pro app for weeks and I still get the pre-roll ad every single time. Don’t waste your money, this app is a lie.
Disappointed
by Icy View on 2021/02/13 18:37
I regularly used the recording feature on this app. Now that the record button has been disabled, this app is useless to me.

Great Radio Listening
by Durangodave123 on 2021/02/07 19:57
Everything for radio people. A great way to introduce people to radio. Streaming has gotten so much better. Been with Tune-In since the beginning. You can find anything!!
Devoted listener to TuneIn pro
by MissKitty99 on 2017/11/02 23:17
A feature that I would REALLY like to see added as an option in Tune-In settings is the ability to chose "anchored browsing" or "anchored scanning" when scanning down through my Favorites list. I often select a station, decide the subject being discussed is not interesting to me, and return to Favorites in order to continue scanning down the list. However, TuneIn returns me to the top of the Favorites list instead of permitting me to resume scanning where I left off. Otherwise, I love TuneInPro. I have been a user of TuneIn since probably 2010. As a radio aficionado, I love finding radio stations with live or repeat talk show programming all over the U.S. and cultural programming from other countries. Since I am a late night person, the ability to find at any almost any hour stations offering repeat programming is of great importance to me. Using TuneIn I can find the programs being repeated or recorded that I like at 3am ET, for example. The ability to record anything I am listening to live for playback later is also a huge plus for me, especially classical music concerts. Because of the variety of programming and the ability to RECORD (a huge plus!) available to me through TuneIn, other apps such as Pandora and iHeart do not interest me at all.

TuneIn Pro has been working great but the new update is creating a bunch of issues.: *Recordings are now a sub-tab in My Library instead of a stand alone screen. Not a big deal but it requires extra navigation steps which matter with the final issue I mention. * Multiple times my shows just stopped playing and recording. My phone was on my desk in a charger untouched and connection was not dropped. I pick it up to do something and find it has stopped playing and recording (recording with sound off so I can listen later so I was not aware). * A big flaw is that you used to be able to scan back while something was playing live and pick up listening at previous moments within a 30 minute window (still works on recordings). You could do this with the 30 second forward/back buttons or just dragging the play line. This no longer works. * This happened with the last update but is still the case with the current update. If you are listening to recorded content with your phone locked and you pause it and then resume it, the recording gets dropped and it picks up the channel live. It happens if you pause using headphones, the screen, watch or some other device. This stinks because it requires you to pickup your phone, unlock it, go to the recording and restart it. With the new “My Library” button it takes one more step to get it done. 1st world problem but still a poorly designed aspect of the app and resume feature.
Always Updating
by rah711 on 2020/01/17 01:33
Excellent! Of all my apps.(and I have way too many) This Dev. has updated his app in an attempt to keep things fresh and new with more updates than any other app. I own. Now that says a lot about the Devs. intentions. That being said I don't understand the complaints. This is the best music app I have, and I own several. The customer service is second to none so rather than slam someone's hard earned work, which he/she obviously cares deeply about, why not drop a line to them first? Rather than immediately posting negs? I can appreciate it and many have it coming, but not this Dev. I know all of you have or had apps. that the Devs could care less about. They post it, sell it, and abandon it. Take the money and run, and there's more of them than people who truly care. That's why I felt compelled to post, because this one is one that really cares about the product. There aren't a lot and I hate to see someone that puts their whole into the product become grouped in with the money grabbers. Take Care.... UPDATE: Well, as they say all good things come to an end. I hated to see this app go the route of the subscription. This was and continues to be a great app, and the developers have been improving this app since it’s inception.
What a terrible shame!
by Brittany's grandmother on 2020/10/04 01:12
I loved my iTunes Pro. I listen to just one station, Family Radio. I’m realizing that it must have been the last update that changed things. I no longer have the “RECORD” option. I needed it and I relied on it frequently. What makes me feel angry is that they did this without notice I was one the first to buy iTunes Pro. There was a special offer and loving it as much as I did, I upgraded to the “Pro”. After that I had many interruptions, usually either just before the weekend or during the week end. At times it took a long time to get back going, until a really nice person told me how to fix the broken app, which is what was happening. For many years I had no problems until now. I really need the Record feature, I hope they will see the error they made and give us back what we paid for. Sincerely, Mrs. Patricia C. Rohan
STOP DOING WEIRD THINGS
by MMM86914554 on 2021/06/06 04:27
Every time this app gets updated I’m taken aback by the dumb things that get removed or moved around or broken. I love TuneIn and I’ve been using it for probably 8 years. I learned early on the secret was to not update the app. Today it stopped working and I was forced to update the app. Now you can’t get to the ‘currently playing’ screen. Like you can’t go there. It won’t let you see what you’re listening to. To browse music stations you have to click through 47 screens and then scroll to the very bottom of a cesspool of things trying to force you to subscribe to them and whatever they are trying to sell you. It shoved the ‘favorites’ up into this other screen where they used to be easily accessible at the bottom, where they were fine. They were fine at the bottom. I’m going to stalk the updates until they update to something less bonkers and then ride that less bonkers version for as long as I can go before it forces me to update again. At which point I’ll learn the entire interface is in glowing emojis and all of the screens are jammed into the bottom left corner or whatever they do next in their quest to just constantly mess with things. It’s like an 8 year old picking at a scab. Just for no reason. Just because it’s there.
Wi-Fi problem AGAIN
by Granpadavid on 2021/06/10 15:40
I gave been using this app for a long time. (decade?). Every sipo often an update comes out that prevents my use. The latest is now preventing me from accessing content unless I allow use of cellular data. I have paid a fee at one time to use the Pro version. I do not see why I should allow access to cellular data when my home WiFi network passes my ISP's speed tests. I most often use the app at home. If I am away from home I MAY use cellular data if necessary. However, I should have the choice. I do not want the service to mandate that I use my cellular data because they want me to. I do not have unlimited data. I do nor need it normally. TUNE-IN please restore my ability to use the service through WiFi and make sure future updates do not cause me to lose this ability again. Three times (at least) is demonstrating more patience then some thing should be granted to such repetition on this issue. Potential users: Think carefully about tjis issue and whether you want to be forced to use cell data all the tine to use this service. What will make me happy? Tunein fix the issue and make sure you are not playing info gathering games. As I understand here are other services available. Have I submitted a complaint to customer service from within the app? yes on more than one ocassion.
Plagued with intrusive ads. Now I also hate quicken loans for life
by Ralfberserk on 2019/12/10 17:32
I had this app for a long time, and I use it to listen to foreign stations occasionally, but since a few months this app became unbearable. When you open any station you’re welcomed with a high volume, high pitched, fast speaking, house flipping guru ad style from Quicken loans ceo: Jay Farmer. You would ask why now I know his name? Because its in every frickin ad! A botched remarketing algorithm must believe I’m desperate for a money loan because I’m literally bombarded with quicken loans ads every 5 minutes or less. Today it was the worst episode when I was literally flurried with 6 quicken loans ads in sequence not even one finishing before the next one started. That’s how bad this is. Now, to the listening experience: If you want to listen to a sports game, a concert, a news cast or something where you don’t want to lose the continuity, then look somewhere else because Tune In Radio will irritate you with an intrusive ad in the middle of the most interesting dialog from your radio show or maybe in the middle of your favorite song. Now I’m certain of two things: I will move to another app that treats the user with more respect, and I will never, ever go to quicken loans.
Sadly, goodbye...

TuneIn has attributes that might normally earn four or five stars, but I've discovered a deal-killer: The app won't function with my VPN (virtual private network) activated. I always protect my online privacy to the max, and this means encrypting all of my traffic, both incoming and outgoing, and masking my identity and location to the extent possible. If TuneIn won't work with VPN, does this mean the company is trying to collect data from my activity? The app tells me I have no WiFi connection, but I do, of course. Does this mean the developer is unable to handle encryption? Or, perhaps, doesn't want me to mask location or identity? I'm going to delete TuneIn from my devices after posting this review. I've found other online tuners that work okay for me with privacy protection enabled — myTuner Radio and Simple Radio are two examples. In these times, we need to protect our privacy from corporations who want to sell us and governments who want to repress us. That's why I subscribe to a good VPN (Tunnel Bear), I never use Google search and have zero contact with Facebook or its subsidiaries. Remember, if it is free, you are the product.
Error message on FAVORITES and BROWSE pages
by dvananda on 2019/12/21 11:06
I have loved Tune-in Pro for years, but ever since last week, my FAVORITE and BROWSE pages are completely blank, displaying only the message, “An error occurred, please try later!” I have been in touch with a very kind person on the support staff and tried all recommendations, to no avail. I can no longer log in or out because the settings button is gone, and I’m nervous that if I delete the app from my phone and reload it, it might not recognize my password or might corrupt the app on my iPad (which is still working normally). Has anyone else run into this problem? Any suggestions? I love the app but I appear to be at an impasse. UPDATE: I deleted and reloaded the app, discovering in the process that one of my FAVORITES, Classic FM, is no longer being offered through Tune-In, though the icon was still visible. My guess is that the app couldn’t reconcile the contradiction (a station there but not there) and did a little freak out. My favorite app is working again. Yippee!
Beyond Disappointing - Do Not Subscribe!
by JRHaendel on 2020/11/29 01:23
The app, as far as it goes, functions very well. The Premium Subscription, however, is complete junk and a waste of money. I won’t even go into my disappointment and frustration with the termination of the agreement between tuneIn and the NFL. No, I only want to talk about the fact that, as a Premium subscriber, I am getting pre-roll aand mid-roll ads for almost every station I listen to. I’m not talking about the local radio ads, either. I am talking about ads which are not heard on the stations over-the-air broadcast. When I tried to contact support, they pointed the finger at the individual radio station. That, in my opinion, should not be my problem. TuneIn lead me to believe that paying for the Premium Subscription would eliminate these ads. Otherwise, why would I even consider paying for the Premium service? There is zero value-add! Example: I tap to listen to a station in Florida. Before the station begins playing, I receive an ad for a Nashville-based hospital. And no, it is not unique to the station. This is unacceptable and had I not paid for a year in advance, I would definitely not have continued my subscription.
Awful sports broadcast quality and excessive advertising
by odessaranger on 2020/01/07 15:03
I can’t count the chronic, ongoing, repeated episodes where live sports event plays are repeated, often 3 or 4 or more times, hearing and rehearing the same few seconds of some game, while I know the live game has continued without any way to get past the repeated buffering errors. And then there are the over-the-limit advertisements, the same ads over and over and even when I change news channels - literally inescapable at times, seemingly continuously - thank heavens for the foreign channels. And this is PREMIUM service. Is there an alternative news source that can be paid without endless advertising? I deeply dislike TuneIn.
Banner Ads on the paid version, Buggy, slow to load
by Ohwrdami on 2017/10/01 07:33
Still with the F&ck!ng ads. I really think a lawsuit needs to happen. Just when you think folks have figured out how to make a stable ad-free version of paid software imagine my surprise to find rolling banner ads on my Pro/ advert free software. Besides being miffed with that the app is slow to load, it often freezes and fails to resume playing a stream after phone calls or when getting back into the car after running an errand. It just freezes. This app used to be really good, then they started adding crap no one cares about... I wouldn't recommend I only use it because I paid for it. You know what works? The banner ads they insist on putting in my app. $9.99 for the privilege if having a banner ad for home depot at the top of my favorites page with no way to turn it off. Support is none. So long as Apple allows these app developers to het away with this they will. Keep in mind while this app is "starting up" what its actually doing is calling home to Tune In to download banner ad content instead of streaming your music.
Makes for fun commute, but a few bugs
by Vike99 on 2018/01/07 18:36
Update 1/6/18. Just heard from tunein that “As of January 15th, 2018, we will no longer be offering audiobooks as part of our premium package. We hope you will come to enjoy our other premium content like 24/7 live streaming and commercial-free news with MSNBC, plus all the music channels and live sporting events throughout the year.” Sorry but replacing quality audio books with MSNBC? Ah, no. Still a good app, but content just took a huge hit. Pros: for $8 a month i get all NFL, MLB, and English football games. Plus current audio books. Ability to set events to my calendar. Get every radio station i can think of. Pause, record, go back to a spot, record, etc. been using the free version for years and now premium service - highly recommended for us commuters. Cons: several audio books cut chapters short. I contacted tunein and they acknowledged this was a bug being worked. NFL game commercials are replaced by mind numbing musak that really gets annoying with the large amount of breaks in the action.
An update for an icon.. really?
by vvts on 2017/12/22 18:22
Instead of rolling out an icon update ( which is meh , btw) why isn’t the buffering being corrected, or that constant , and I mean constant error message: “ We’re sorry. An error occurred with this stream. Try again later.” This happens daily. If I try to listen to a podcast, I get the error message. If I try to listen to a station, I get the message. This has been going on for months. The quality of this service has diminished greatly. Over the years instead of getting better it’s gotten worse. Also let’s see if this review gets posted. I submitted one a couple of weeks ago and it never did... Dec 22 Update... the developer sent me a prompt response. I appreciated that. I noted my concern and they responded back that they will look into it. Like is said I luv this app, had it for some years now, that’s why I was concerned. still like the old icon tho...:)
Needs Design Improvement
by EmerithV on 2020/09/17 09:36
Hi, I really enjoy being able to listen to all the stations that Tune In has to offer, i have the Pro version so that i can record what I want to keep. It works great! I just wish we could be able to save to our devices the recordings, to share the recordings with others. Also the app itself looks too simple it needs to look nice or fancy, Pandora did a great job in their app! Pandora looks super cool! I wish Tune in would redesign their app, but make it user friendly. There is always updates for bug fixes but there is never an update where there is an actual change of user experience within the app! Also very much needed and i request that there is a Dark Mode!!! I listen to the radio stations at night but my bloody eyes hurt even on low brightness on my iphone. Dark mode would increase the use of the app during the night. Thank you!
If I could only give NO stars...
by djcarlitosmorales on 2021/03/05 16:52
I was an early adopter to this app and now they have turned their back on me. For many years I was a faithful and loyal customer that did my best to spread the love by recommending the app to friends and family. I was able to record radio shows and amassed well over 200 recordings. Last week I made the mistake of tapping “Update All” in the App Store to get my phone current. With the update to TuneIn, I lost said 200+ recordings and the ability to record going forward. When I wrote to support they replied that they sent out an email, which I never saw and a notification every time I tried to record should have popped up to notify me. NO SUCH NOTIFICATION EVER POPPED UP! I am beyond upset. The record feature was the main reason I used this app. I hate how companies stray from their core features in app updates then say “sorry, it was for legal reasons.” Funny how it was legal when it came out and for 7+ years that I had the product, but now they claim it’s for “legal reasons.”
Steady erosion of features
by 71925 on 2020/10/07 15:15
I have had the “pro” version for years. It used to be functional - it allowed you to pause and rewind broadcasts, including things like CNN. And it enabled you to record them. Very nice. Unlike the freebie vanilla version which didn’t have that. And you didn’t have to listen to Tune In commmercials interspersed in the broadcast. Well, over time that’s all gone away. You can get CNN, but you can’t pause, rewind or record. You are forced to listen to the annoying Tune In advertisements. You can get NPR, and you can pause, isn’t that awesome. But you can no longer record! This must be one of the recent “bug fixes”. It’s hilarious, because the “record” button still exists. It’s just always grayed out!! Obviously the intent of this app now is to harass you into paying more to get the “premier” version, which seems to want to replace the “pro” version. Shoddy and disgusting, there is no way in h—l I will respond to such harassment. I will go somewhere else, or just do without.
For me, a bait & switch
by MJDmel on 2018/10/19 15:30
I purchased one year of TuneIn Premium for the “audible books” that worked out to less than $10/mo for me. As someone with a neurodegenerative disease, who used to read for a lucrative living, now living on a fixed income, both the price point and service mattered a great deal, as it is now difficult for me to read my 3 kindles. I also enjoy having MSNBC on radio; however, I have Comcast, so with the iOS app, I can listen to MSNBC as a “radio app” standing alone or while using other apps, just as with TuneIn. I would like to talk to TuneIn Premium’s Customer Service, yet it seems they would want me to do that. My Annual Renewal of TuneIn Premium is approaching in November and they stand to lose someone who could be a continuing, automatically, annually renewing customer, which is great for their books in competitive markets; however, my “customer service” tab in TuneIn Premium’s “settings” links to a blank service recommendation, which I had no option but to use. I cannot see any other method of contacting TuneIn Premium Customer Service, so I’m going out on a limb and guessing that the Customer Service Team who dreamed up this ploy is not as large as their marketing team, if not their economics forecasting But I hope and shall continue my pursuit of the TuneIn Premium’s mythical customer service. I shall update my review of TuneIn Premium’s Customer Service. 😳
Annoying!! Loses radio feed
by Curtainman on 2018/03/08 13:56
I record my favorite morning show because they have 15 minutes of break for every 20 minutes of show. I will start tune in recording when I wake in the morning. When I get in the car to leave, it only lets me go back 30 minutes or so even though it has recorded much more. If I lose the station (transitioning from WiFi to 3G taking more than a few seconds, for example), the station shuts off, stopping recording. You have a choice at this point. Listen to what you recorded so far or reconnect and listen live with no way to go back in time. Why can’t you start playback of live radio from the start of recording while continuing to record? Why can’t you continue recording when you lose the station and reconnect? These are tremendously annoying oversights.
Scam alert!
by Tpm985 on 2021/03/23 06:23
I bought the pro version of this app already. I’m positive of that. I didn’t want to but I did it so I would at least have it and that’d be the end of it. However, now they’re charging a 10 dollar subscription on top of that? I get real sick of these app developers milking the users for every dime they can and this is a flagrant example of that right here. I will never ever pay another dime for this since I already paid for the pro app. I just don’t think that this is fair at all and we’ll see if this review goes up because they don’t usually allow reviews that are critical of the app, which that alone is nonsense. Sigh I just want a good app that isn’t gong to become a monthly payment for me. I just do not want that becoming another thing weighing down my bank account. If it were a one time payment and you own it like I had thought, then we’d be fine but clearly they milling the users dry.
TUNE IN APP
by MacBeth on 2018/01/17 20:57
Used to be the absolute BEST! Audiobooks were included with the Premium app which is $10/month. I’m visually impaired and it was a wonderful thing. Now they have removed the Audiobooks feature completely. Additionally they disabled the ability to “download” a single book upon the announcement they would be discontinuing them, so they effectively disabled any way to save books I had read, or planned to read, or was currently reading and not had the chance to finish! This was a sneaky and underhanded way to end the Audiobooks feature - there were several partly read books I couldn’t finish in time, and because they disabled downloading at same time as announcement I couldn’t save them for later. Even though I was still paying $10 month premium. Now that they have removed their best feature, I personally find there is no further need to continue paying for the Premium app. Shame on Tune In !!!!
Once a great Radio app... not anymore
by chrisd7 on 2021/01/25 14:57
I’ve been using TuneIn Pro for many years and always enjoyed how well it worked, how terrific it’s recording function performed, how it let me reliably pause a broadcast and then continue it. Well unfortunately that high level of application quality has deteriorated with the past updates - so much, that It’s time to switch. There are two issues which cause my one star rating - both have been reported to TuneIn support and are being ignored (9+ months not fixed): Despite having the Pro version I am being entertained with a pop up screen asking me to subscribe... despite having clicked so many times to decline, the screen continues to come back. And then the pause function, which in the past reliably recorded the broadcast now often just drops the recording and starts the station fresh - that happens despite available storage space.
The app works great but I won’t subscribe after this month.
by meat_gun on 2018/01/16 00:40
The app works wonderfully but the two main reasons I subscribed to pro were 1) audiobooks (they had some fantastic titles and $9.99 was a hell of a deal to have access to them) and 2) football. After today audiobooks are no longer available and football season is over after this month so I’m cancelling. Maybe I’ll subscribe again when football revs up in the fall but it def won’t be a year round thing for me any longer. I don’t know if the issue with audiobooks was financial on the side of the publishers, not enough interests from listeners or both. Tunein never really advertised the feature very much, I sort of found it accidentally. Shame to see it go though.
Reception is usually good, but why did you mess with my college basketball?
by Pauljasper on 2018/03/03 01:37
I absolutely hate the new way games are shown with college basketball. Upcoming events used to show you everything that was going on, but now it only shows three? Why in the world would you change that? Horrible change. Change it back. I counted on this app to show me who was playing and what time. It no longer does that for me. It also only shows me a couple of live event so I can’t even listen to all the games I want to listen to. I don’t care about that top ranked team stuff. I want to know who is playing, who is on right now, who I can listen to, and not just put the top ranked teams are.
Use it everyday
by Kyokuru on 2018/10/31 23:43
I absolutely love this app. Every day, while at work, I listen to my favorite stations from around the world. Completely recommend it. There is one thing, though. In the watch app the volume controls don’t do anything. I have to switch to the Now Playing screen to control volume. I’m sure most people who have the Apple Watch will agree but won’t call you out on it because it’s such a small thing to change. I’m also sure that you guys want this app to be the best it can be and will hopefully fix this little problem. In the meantime, I’ll continue to use this app. I’ll be waiting! (^ー^)
Great Deal for Audiobooks
by Germany2263 on 2018/04/20 03:16
Updating review to five stars. I primarily use this app for the unlimited audiobooks. There is no better value for book lovers than their audiobook selection. Other services only allow a couple free books per month. With this app you can listen to as many books as you can all for the price of 7.99 - a bargain. Update: Still going strong and they have added many authors. I have the premium version not the pro. No bugs for me Update: They no longer provide audiobooks and it’s not worth the money for the other products they have. Very disappointing. They went from being great, to being just another internet radio station. Bring back audiobooks, market it properly, and you can make more money. The audiobooks should have been a boom considering other sites charge more per month and the quantity is limited as to what can be listened to. Great loss for listeners.
Getting worse
by Byronic_Hero on 2020/08/14 11:48
New update took away my ability to pause or rewind certain stations when I miss something. It also restarts streams instead of pausing when I use Siri or take out ear buds for a moment... dumb. Can’t seem to be able to record stations anymore either. No more functionality than a 1950s radio now, so what’s the point? Navigation to favorites is now getting overly complicated. If I press a button that says “favorites” I want to be taken to “favorites” and not another sub menu that requires further navigation to get to the actual Favorites. If you want good, intuitive, simple navigation, use car-mode all the time. Who cares if it isn’t as pretty, working good is better than looking good. classic case of app developers reinventing the wheel as a trapezoid... the 4 year app old version on my backup phone is far superior to this app now
Indispensable except...
by ColorBandit on 2019/12/13 17:57
My favorite radio app because I can get the stations and podcasts I want all in one app. It remembers my sign in and saves me from the inconvenience of having to log in repeatedly like other radio apps do. I have been a user for several years now and there is one BIG bug that continues through version to version. This app has no buffer. When the signal (WiFi mostly) gets weak, the app goes into a repeat loop and gets stuck there. If I’m doing chores in the yard and move in and out of range for just a few seconds, the content gets stuck in a 10 second or so loop. I have to quit the program and restart it to restore the stream. It’s the ONLY audio app I have that does this Fix this problem and you will have a world-class app. Please.
iOS 13 Volume Control Defect
by SwankPeRFection on 2019/09/28 19:50
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FIX THE VOLUME BAR DEFECT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Your latest updated today causes the volume control bar to continuously show after adjustment when playing back via AirPods. It never goes away. You have to lock phone or quit app and then it disappears as it should. Way to test the app before publishing it. 🙄 If you have your AirPods connected and you’ve used another app for playback before opening TuneIn, when starting a stream in this app, the playback happens via the iPhone speaker rather than the AirPods. Fix this. Everything else knows it should pipe via AirPods, but your app apparently doesn’t. Stop deleting negative reviews until you actually fix the issues!!! If you’re listening to music live and you take a call, the music will continue to cache in the background so that when you get off the call the music starts playing again where it left off. Problem is that after a bit of it playing like that, it’ll skip forward to the current live stream point and lose all the cached playback. I listen in AirPods so I don’t know if that’s playing a part in this, but it does it on cellular or WiFi, it doesn’t matter the connection, but it’s really annoying and needs to be fixed like ASAP.
Buffering is terrible-can’t recommend
by terrilee_nc on 2019/08/01 17:01
Edited review August 2019: This has been my favorite music app for years - I had to take away all the stars - all of a sudden, the buffering is SO BAD it’s unusable. My internet connection hasn’t changed, and other streaming apps work fine, so it must be TuneIn. I wonder if Pro users are being throttled down to pressure us into buying premium?? I can’t recommend TuneIn until/unless they fix this! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Previous Review: In my experience, TuneIn has improved tremendously since I first started using it. It used to buffer and crash constantly; now it seldom does. I favor it to listen to small university jazz stations with small broadcast range (even my local ones!) - I couldn't enjoy them otherwise. It's also handy to listen to my favorite NPR shows when I'm traveling. I haven't used some features, like recording, since I use podcasts to catch up on my favorite shows. I also usually listen to public radio so ads aren't much of a problem for me. My rating may be higher than most because I haven't used some features.
Broken! ***UPDATE***
by Lobosrsk on 2018/11/30 20:11
Update 30 November - The black screen issue has finally been fixed! I’ve opened and closed the app several times with no black screen issue. Thank you - changed rating back to 5 stars. Stopped working with the new version. As others have said, only get a black screen when opening the app. Deleted app and reinstalled, but will only work one time. If you close and reopen the app you get the black screen again. Pretty bad for a paid subscription. Perhaps development team should read the reviews after putting out a new release. Users are the best testers.
App believes I’m not connected to Internet
by LittlecubRoberto on 2020/07/18 14:20
I purchased TuneIn a LONG time ago. It may have been 50 cents on sale. It's been that long. So I have seen this product evolve to what it is now. Update: TuneIn is definitely much better than it has been in many years But there is a nagging bug that continues to frustrate me. It thinks I am offline! This strictly happens on Cellular data connections. Like many bugs, it happens once in a while. I will walk out of my house to exercise while listening to music and most of the times, the handoff to cellular data is seamless. But about once a week, it will not work. The home screen says “Browse not available while offline.. Please connect to the Internet”. The Favorites says “Request failed: forbidden (403)”. Closed the app. Reinstalled. Updated. Still behaves the same. Only solution is to reboot the phone which is a nuisance. Shouldnt have to reboot my phone because this app misbehaves. I already contacted support and they basically said if works after reboot it is fine. What?? Please do something about this. I am sure i am not the only one with issue. iPhone 11. iOS 13.5. Tunein 18.5
Favorite/ no more
by JJ⚡ on 2018/01/15 02:38
I have been a long time subscriber to this app and have loved everything about it. A little buggy here and there but not that bad. I listen to audiobooks while working 6 days a week. I go through 10 plus books a month and love being able to browse through the selection to pick what I find interesting. THEN YOU HAD TO GO AND RUIN THE BEST APP IVE EVER USED! No words can describe how disappointed I am you decided to cancel audiobook content on Jan. 15. I would happily pay a higher monthly fee to continue with my subscription but after two emails to support asking why tunein is going away from audiobooks the only answer I can get is “audiobook content will no longer be available after Jan 15 we hope you continue to use the many blah blah blah” if tunein brings back audiobooks and even for a higher subscription I’ll be back. But I’m out now.
Used TuneIn for Years - Kinda Like It But
by EEINPTN on 2019/09/24 17:25
Downgrading my original review because I’ve never subscribed to Tunein Pro and I keep getting charged for it, have cancelled it multiple times, but like really bad heartburn, the subscription and the charges for Tunein Pro keep coming back to my Apple account. Previous Review: Have used it for years. Wouldn't live without it, but in the last year, the constant requests to rate TuneIn when I was trying to start a show or "TuneIn" the news, has resulted in using this much less and one older iPad in our bathroom being thrown out the window. Fortunately, the iPad didn't land on anyone at the time. These constant requests for sign-ins and ratings are clearly hazardous and, the results, in terms of app functionality, reliability and features are made meaningless by this kind of disingenuous and, fundamentally, dishonest approach to surveys.
Dishonest sneaky liars
by itune1 on 2020/01/18 21:31
I bought this app years ago when it was useful. For an extra amount I bought a one time pro upgrade that let me make recordings. The last time I got a new phone and updated the app apparently I was moved to a different pro version that charges 9.99 per month. Once upon a time you could listen to a decent number of radio stations. I suppose the iHeart companies forced most stations on their app so tough luck TuneIn, but it’s really low down to trick long time customers into something they never wanted. Also shame on Apple. I just discovered this reoccurring charge on my card. Apple should be emailing me my subscriptions each month. Of course if Tim Cook is comfortable with using the equivalent of slave labor from Asia, I doubt he cares that a company is using the Apple ecosystem to rip off senior citizens. Beware of purchasing this app.
Getting better but not there yet
by Jean R on 2018/07/14 19:29
You’ve added a new feature. Scanning through programs on, for example, Jazz 88. There’s a scanning feature instead of letting you pause and then go back and listen again where you left off. If you get a phone call or posit for any length of time you lose your place. Not fond of this feature. I’m downgrading to three stars Also, I’ve been trying to add new favorite channels or stations but for some reason it will not allow me to do this. I cannot delete any stations from favorites either. This app is getting worse instead of better.
Great App by MAJ
by An Old New Yorker on 2018/03/23 22:21
I love the functionality of this radio application. While in NewYork City I was listening to the 1190 AM gospel station. Now I can take that station or hundreds of other stations back home with me. The the ability to use the "record," and "sleep timer" functions are a plus. However, I just had to add an P.S. to this review - the new icon is hideous. Your management should take the new logo and go get their money back. I'm surest I know I none of the people it is supposed to represent would be proud to be associated with it or even see anything in it that reflects them (unless they are on drugs). : - )
Killed the app with latest update
by Appleman84829 on 2018/05/01 16:25
I loved the app, until now. The latest update made the app unusable. Previous versions had 30sec back and forward buttons next to the play button when listing to a stream. That was extremely useful. You could go back or forward in 30sec intervals to listen to something again or skip through commercials if you paused the playback. Those buttons were changed to scan. Which changes the stream you are listening to similar to a scan function on a radio to scan through stations. I don’t want to do that while I’m listening to a radio station. Please bring back the skip feature. I paid for the pro version and I extremely disappointed that this was changed. I’m going to look for a different program until this feature is returned.
I am paying $10 a month and still getting ads!
by NurtureWarrior on 2020/05/27 05:10
I’m sick of it. I started with tune in Pro with the promise that MSNBC would be ad free. And initially they did a great job in filling the ad space with “news from earlier today”. Now easily half of every adbreak time Tunein is still running the F’ing ads. Sometimes they cut the regular programming early to go to these outbreak fillers. Sometimes the ads start and then eventually they get around to switching to the alternative news piece. Regularly they in that alternative news please a full hour and a half early. You don’t do your job - you don’t get paid.
Rewind and FF not available
by SRV_rulez on 2018/09/24 21:24
Paid for the PRO version and used this app everyday Monday-Friday for years. Loved the fact that I could pause it when listening to live radio if I received a phone call. Before this update I was able to rewind or fast forward after pausing and letting it buffer a little. Now that ability is no longer available. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Really hope you bring back those controls instead of the “scan” button that just skips thru different radio stations based off the content you are listening to. Please fix this. Thanks
Attention is lacking
by JD CC on 2018/12/19 03:33
I first purchased iTunes pro shortly after it came out and I thought it worked great on my iPhone.”5 stars” I really liked the app... BUT when the developer updated it and merged the record time and alarm together it really screwed up. Since that update I have been unable to say that or I should say to properly set the alarm because it never goes off regardless of what state the app is in, or turned on, or active in the background the alarm function does not work as it should or as it has in the past. NEEDS WORK. If it had not been for that I would rate this as an excellent app. WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT. The alarm function and record function should be separated.
Love TuneIn
by peter7809 on 2020/08/01 16:07
I have been a steady TuneIn user for years and compliment the organization for its commitment to providing the best radio and podcast coverage that I have been able to find and enjoy. I am an NPR and news junkie and one could not find a better host than TuneIn...in an instant I can listen to NPR here in San Francisco or switch to WWNO in New Orleans or WGBH in Boston or if I prefer can listen to CNN or MSNBC live. And when traveling I can instantly tune into local NPR and/or local stations whether is the USA or traveling internationally. Simply put they are the best thing that has happened to radios since the transistor radio.
Excellent but why can’t I rearrange the order of my favorite stations??
by FCP7Guy63 on 2019/08/27 10:45
I have been a devoted user of this software for several years now but it is frustrating when functions that were once standard seem to disappear. Currently I am no longer able to move my numerous favorite stations into the order I would like in order to organize them into like groups within the master favorites list. Now when I add a new station I can no longer edit the favorites list to drag it up into the grouping it should be in. This functionality was present only a couple of updates ago. Please could the developers bring this back? It was of great benefit and honestly such a no-brainer that I am surprised to learn it is no longer there. Also, for those of us who have exceptionally long lists of favorite stations, can it be made possible to see ALL of our favorites right away without having to scroll down the truncated list of favorite stations to select “view all” just to actually see all of our favorites? This is otherwise an amazingly thought out and invaluable piece of software that is a must-have!
Not happy with latest update ...
by slimbobwe on 2018/06/08 11:15
I have enjoyed TuneIn Pro for many years and consider myself an early adopter but the latest version doesn’t have the ability to go back in a broadcast in 30 second increments. That was a very useful feature for me because sometimes you miss something, or you just want to hear a section of a broadcast again. Other than that there still seems to be a problem with live broadcasts repeating themselves. Is that a buffering issue when sometimes a 30 or 45 second part of a show repeats itself over and over again? I’ll still use the program almost every day but these issues are VERY annoying.
Tune In loses ability to Record
by CharlieGS on 2020/10/02 12:06
Makes listening to radio very easy and convenient. But I am downgrading from 4 to 2 stars. Two complaints: when new iOS became available, Tune-In became buggy. Even when station is playing scheduled recording doesn't take place reliably. Also, I would like to see the ability to record happen based on time, in the background, and without the App needing to be open and playing. What's the point of timed recording schedule if you need to be listening to your program in order to record it. 2nd Update: Call to support about Crash trying to use Record Timer didn't get back to me after their first suggestion to Force Quit App which I had tried before calling support. Problem has now gone unsolved for months. 3rd UPDATE: Now 1 Star - Tune in was pretty good and useful to record shows during extremely early broadcast times. Over years “improvements” made it less so. Now October 2020 it is almost useless. It is just like every other radio app. early broadcast times. Over years “improvements” made it less so. Now October 2020 it is almost useless. It is just like every other radio app.
Used it be more stable and some poor design choice
by kandjar on 2018/10/23 03:29
I've been using the tune in radio for several years now, but I can't say I'm happy with the updates.... An annoying bug present for a long time still hasn't been fixed: - the "< 30" or "> 30" buttons have sometimes unexpected and unwanted behaviors, like for example: pressing "> 30" will just jump forward by 20 or 30 minutes out of nowhere... A stupid design choice: - when the Bluetooth speaker gets disconnected, instead of pausing the streaming radio, TuneIn just consider that you just decided to STOP the streaming, doing so cancelling all previously buffered track. Why? Especially with potentially some Bluetooth instability, it's really annoying... The iWatch support is way worst than before, why not keeping the 4 radio icons view? Allowing for quick change.... My final pet peeve is regarding the removal of the car mode (which happened a while back).... I listen to TuneIn a lot while driving and now I just cannot change station anymore... as it would require to spend a lot of attention to the app.... Please bring the car mode back!!
What changed????
by wanted to give a high review on 2020/10/12 17:02
I am an frequent user of TuneIn. I enjoyed it so much that I upgraded to the Pro version; however, I used to be able to record my favorite news shows. This was especially convenient if there was a schedule conflict with being able to listen to my shows live. But, I noticed with a recent app update, that this “recording” feature was removed. Really disappointed, truly disappointed, Without this feature, what’s the real need to having & paying for the “Pro” version? I wish the company would bring this option back. Until then, I’ll be searching for other apps that more so align with what I am looking for
A question
by bijlmersfinest on 2018/12/01 15:47
I’ve been using the free version of Tunein radio for years now and decided to buy the Tunein pro version yesterday. On the free version I cast it using google chrome cast to my speakers and it works all the time. Since I bought the pro version I don’t even see the “cast” sign in the app when I’m listening to music. What’s going on Tunein? From the information on the pro version it is stated you can cast your radio to google chrome cast but in the app there is nothing about that. Can you guys fix it or I’m deleting the pro version. What the hell!!
Deleted all my recordings, I’m returning the favor.
by a student and reviewer on 2021/03/11 21:49
App update deleted all my recordings. Terrible thing for an app to do to a customer. Yes, they claim it was for legal reasons, but the app should have had a better legal team to help argue their case and even if they lost, they should have put giant red-flag warnings on the version of the app that did this. Going back over the app update history, it’s not even clear when this happened. I’m deleting tunein now (to return the “deletion” favor). Older review : Some stations don't work on cell network (repeating and skipping) making the app unusable. As an example kcrw news had huge problems with this app but when using the kcrw app directly all is fine so I know it is a tunein app bug rather than network issues.
