ads every 10 minutes
by anbvs on 2021/11/25 16:15
So far was a great app, now I’m getting ads every 10 minutes. It’s very very annoying specially when you listen a podcast and when they push an ads. Delete and never come back until you fix that.
Great channel
by yadroop on 2021/11/25 10:57
Best entertainment channel for all my needs
Used to be good

Now you have 30 sec ads each 10min or less. Going back to the radio app

Also how come I elected to never truck location and I get all the local adds anyway. How come do you you know where am I???👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿
Terrible production
by Robbie8oD on 2021/11/24 01:59
Same commercials over and over again. I have to mute it cuz I can’t stand to hear it again. Then commercials cut off mid sentence. Very amateurish. Also they advertise the Faux News propaganda network. 🤮

So much for no ads on Tunin Premium
by DW Berner Girl on 2021/11/24 01:34
All day long today, ads have been present on MSNBC. Tunin, you need to fix the premium version. No usual recent news clips, just ads taking on average of 20 minutes/1 hour segment. This was not the case yesterday so am wondering if someone does this manually and called in sick.

I love this App
by rupca on 2021/11/23 19:02
It allows me to hear my favorite station no matter where I am at.
Good but not great
by Pak-A-Nut on 2021/11/23 16:33
While this is a reliable live streaming app, the inclusion of video ads in an audio app is ridiculous. I have no issues with ads in a free streaming app, in fact I think it’s a great model. If I’m driving or jogging, it’s not convenient or safe to watch an ad or keep the screen open. Fix this and I’ll bump it to 5 stars.
Worst app

Ads ads ads

More and more ads with every update. And you still expect us to keep using your app?
Used to be great
by ccanfield1 on 2021/11/21 22:13
Loved using TuneIn when I moved out of Tucson to listen to Arizona Wildcat games. Now it’s locked behind Premium subscription, when in the past it wasn’t. I get trying to push people to pay but it just means I won’t be using an app I used to love.
Too many adds
by raulyyyy on 2021/11/21 17:06
It must been 10 years since I have listen to tune in , never have a problem , till now , you guys are putting now adds every 15 minutes, I mean we all ready had adds before. It was even when you open the screen. We all see and herd adds before, and it was cool. Now it seems like there is too many , must been like in the last week or so. Looking for a new app now. Thanks guys
Idiotez
by frahdkfgshdv on 2021/11/21 00:58
Poner comerciales propios que interrumpen la transmisión es una idiotez , por eso eliminado !
Love tune In!!

Premium still has ads
by NancyS5 on 2021/11/20 02:05
I have Premium Tune In yet still get ads on MSNBC I have complained about and reported this numerous times yet it persists.
We can listen
by g goguat on 2021/11/19 19:47
Is full commercials. 5, commercials.
Almost all functions are on delay
by Tehun on 2021/11/19 15:04
The app USED TO be great. It would hold your place if you had to pick up where you left off. Now it barely does. But the worst part is that every time you let the app play in the background and go back to it to hit ANY control… there’s at least a 6 second delay before the action is executed. If you leave the app before the delay is fully processed, you have to start over again. My Apple based podcast app is a little less easy to scroll through my favorite shows, but the fact that there’s no delay AND my place on any show is remembered puts the Apple app way above Tunein now
Simple and Few Ads
by Gddfjf on 2021/11/19 12:27
App has simple layout and only an ad at the beginning of a play. That’s quite generous! Definitely function over fashion and that’s a good thing. Loads quickly, is responsive and light. It’s a radio after all not a video.
Tune in

Lovely music but frustrating
by Kathie in Montana on 2021/11/19 10:14
Lovely music but they rarely correctly identify the music that is playing and sometimes I would really like to know!
Schedule is always wrong for npr stations
by Cornhole jury on 2021/11/19 02:30
Lots of npr stations, the listings are always wrong. Maybe they dont have daylight savings time wherever this app is coded.
Good!
by GODS SPARROW on 2021/11/18 18:25
Better reception than the actual Radio stations channel!
Content constantly interrupted
by wefnkjw on 2021/11/18 13:54
Target ad interrupted content 3 times in a 2 minute span. Unlistenable.

Bring Back NBA coverage
by NBA fly Ball on 2021/11/18 02:39
Sports coverage is poor! NBA coverage disappeared. Please Bring back all NBA games on radio. Thank U.
Unfortunately the interface is horrible
by Kingdaddy2000 on 2021/11/18 01:21
It freezes and locks up most of the time on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. I have tried using the app for quite some time yet that interface problem is bad. For example l love that you can pause a station. But when I try I resume, I hit the play button over and over again and nothing happens until it decides to start again on its own. And it maintains a list of previous stations at the bottom of the screen, which is a bad location because it’s too easy to accidentally change channels when you don’t want to. The app needs work.
Great App
by FArouet on 2021/11/17 16:45
InTune is one of the very most useful apps. Want to listen to your college NPR station? No problem (at least getting mine).
I get the commercials
by Eboniblu72 on 2021/11/17 12:26
But every thirty to forty-five seconds? Literally cutting into programming. Over and over. Response: you are correct and I’ve forums that it was that particular station that had the commercials going mid-stream. I’ve since changed the station as it is nationally syndicated. I have not experienced that same issue. Thank you.
Need pro version
by Shadi12345 on 2021/11/17 04:10
Some channels are not working. But its nice app. I wish i can buy the pro version but its expensive 10$ , it should be 1$ only
TERRIBLE answer
by Nathanmh on 2021/11/17 02:57
I wrote a review on Sunday complaining about the Bose ad on tune in premium, and the answer I got is that it’s an NFL partnership etc. I don’t particularly care, I want to be able to switch from game to game without a 15-30 second ad EVERY SINGLE TIME
Mostly accessible with voiceover
by Blinking Betty on 2021/11/17 01:33
Some change has been recently made that is causing my recent‘s section not to read well with voiceover on my iPhone. I do not know how to test and add any helpful information that developer could use to trace the problem. I’m using a XR with iOS 14.8.1.

Radio station not working
by luengoal on 2021/11/15 18:16
Please check some radios stations that are not working, for example radio duna from Chile, my favorite, is not working anymore. Thanks
Good enough for what it does
by Strypedwonder on 2021/11/15 16:49
First, I do wish that if you purchased the app on Google, that the same purchase would qualify for Apple. I also wish that you could still schedule recordings like an older version allowed. But, having said those two bits, it still is a great app. Preferable to I Heart Radio IMO. Feels like fewer ads and less intrusion.
Happy Tune in

I can’t say enough
by wastervtn on 2021/11/15 13:36
Wastervtn I love tune in. I have a metered connection and can’t watch too much video so with tune in I can hear what is happening around the world in any language I want to hear and it takes a fraction of the bandwidth. My favorite stations are in Guam, Finland and Sweden. Thank god it’s Tistai!
Missing stations

Too long…
by No Too Happy Guy! on 2021/11/15 03:07
Each time I change a station to listen to, every time I turn on my favorite app, Tune-in, I have to painstakingly listen to a 28 second advertisement for the clear purpose of getting me to purchase a premium subscription; and now listening to any college game is only a premium option! Not a good move Tune-in! Less ad time and listening to college games should be like it once was ; FREE!

So-so
by tekbarrier on 2021/11/13 03:20
Sometimes it works fine, other times it doesn't. At times it only plays for a few seconds before buffering, doing this over and over and over again. And sometimes after playing for a short while it completely closes and I have to re-open it and start over. There are a lot of bugs in the system that need to be worked out.
Over played Local commercials
by loser Wells Fargo on 2021/11/12 15:15
The same commercials play over and over. Better to listen to local ones. I lost my interest to listen.
Disappointing changes
by JBStiles00 on 2021/11/11 23:40
I used to use this all the time and found it easy to use. Lately, it seems like it just one constant push to get you to “upgrade” to the paid version. Many feeds moved behind paywalls. I going to look elsewhere.
Horrible
by end-of-the-rope on 2021/11/11 21:08
Apple needs to remove the editor choice rating. Look at recent reviews, not old ones. Tune-In used to be very good and is now horrendous. Even after several recent updates—freezes, crashes, slow as molasses, basic functions like pause/play/stop just don’t work—I could go on, but instead I’m just migrating completely to the Apple Podcast App. I recommend others do the same.

Don’t pay for premium!! It does not work.
by Wordmensch on 2021/11/10 06:00
Somehow, the ads still show up regularly. It sometimes blocks the ads (substituting replays of earlier excerpts), but increasingly the ads will play. In addition, the excerpts that are played during commercial breaks are often repeated- which is as tedious as listening to an insipid commercial!! I submitted a complaint and got a response - two days later - asking me to give them dates and times of the commercials. As though I am making notes. THEY KNOW THIS IS HAPPENING. THEY SIMPLY DONT CARE. AND THEY WEREN’T EVEN CONTRITE. NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST.

by BeingBoston81 on 2021/11/07 21:30
I downloaded this to listen to a Patriots game while mowing my lawn. Audio kept dropping for mins at a time and I would miss 1-3 plays. I thought it was my wifi so turned it off, no difference. So annoying and a deal breaker for me. I'm not going to pay money for a service can not perform it's number one feature. Don't waste your time past the fee trial.

$14.99/mo. Rip Off
by TheBigRonbowski on 2021/11/07 18:52
Purchased the Premium version at $14.99/mo. to listen to NFL games but was met with consistent buffering issues. Add on to that TuneIn’s own advertisements they throw in DURING the game’s broadcast! Absolute joke of an app for the price you pay per month to get NFL access.
Too many adds
by Buffalo315 on 2021/11/07 18:49
I pay for this service. I should not have to listen to an add every time I switch stations.
NFL is NOT free
by Werd911 on 2021/11/07 18:46
They advertise “listen free”. They advertise “listen to NFL”. However NFL games are NOT free. When you try to listen, it prompts you to start your free 7 day premium trial, after that, $14.99 a month! For radio! Awful. I won’t do it. It used to actually be free; you’ve lost me. Tune In, if you need more money, charge your advertisers more money. Not me.

Ponderous, all things to all people, monthly payment, advertisements, type of app. I like others paid the 10 bucks for no ads, but over the last two years ads returned with subscription fees to turn them off. I hardly use this app anymore. I listen to one or two genres and do not need the bells and whistles, nor the ads, nor another monthly bill.
Always loving it!

Staying connected
by Peace333(-: on 2021/11/03 03:28
As a single dad with sole custody of my 11 and 12 year old kids for nearly 8 years, I don’t have much time to follow sports. And after finally cutting the cord on costly cable with very few viewing choices, this ESPN radio app has been a godsend, especially when I’m squeezing in a workout at the gym. Love it!

Impossible to listen to!
by Fed#Up! on 2020/06/12 13:01
I primarily use TuneIn to listen to MSNBC “commercial free live”. It used to work flawlessly. In the last six months or so, it has become increasingly impossible to listen to. The broadcast stutters, then stops, then jumps forward, then repeats parts you have heard before, then stops altogether. Rinse, repeat all the above. In the place of commercials, the app used to play short pieces of items “from earlier today that you might not have heard”. I have heard the exact same past news snippets now for months—they are definitely not all “from today”. And often it is not past news I hear, but parts of commercials. (I am paying for commercial free.) The only time this spring that the stuttering, stopping and repeating did not happen was when content was interrupted instead with the announcement that “this station is experiencing technical difficulties”. Ironic that said difficulties were absent during this time—but they are back now that the “This station is experiencing...” interruptions have stopped. I have an image in my head of a group of chimps at the controls, randomly pushing all the buttons in front of them, while eating popcorn and spilling soda all over the control board. This is a maddening listening experience, and I have paid good money for nothing! Buyer beware!!!!
App crash
by wetpaint86 on 2021/07/10 17:27
I listen to sports events while working and it was awesome when I first got the app. All the major sports has games here now only a few do and when listening I have to stop working ans restart the app literally every 1-2 minutes because it will just turn itself off and there’s nothing more frustrating than something exciting happening and in the middle of the announcers excitement the app stops so I turn it back on to not even know what happened because it takes forever to restart the app is when it does start it pays a commercial I have heard 1000 times then returns to the game and then shuts off again in a few seconds. I have messaged to cancel my plan and they won’t respond so I’m going to have to cancel my debit card and set up everything I use auto bill on the get this over. If this app was free it would still be too much to pay.
Need to fix buffering
by DrumGuy6 on 2020/03/12 11:32
Update: The buffering was fixed and worked for a period of months, however recently the ability to pause and playback was removed from the app. Now hitting pause will only save data for a minute or so, then no additional steam is saved and the recording just jumps forward to live. Prior to this the app would save about 30min before jumping to live. This is a huge setback in app performance and makes the app almost useless, since even a short phone call will result in missing part of a broadcast. Hopefully this feature is restored, in the meantime I will unfortunately have to look for a new app. Too bad because I have used this for years and enjoyed it. First of all and probably most importantly, the app content is great. However there are issues with buffering that need to be fixed. The app offers pause and RW/FF functions, but if you pause for even a short time the app will skip ahead midstream once you are playing back the buffered content. Also when playing back buffered content it will randomly repeat a few second long portion several times. Buffering is a feature used on many apps these days and it usually works flawlessly, this app needs to fix these issues to compete. If buffering was fixed this would be a 5 star review.
Horrible

I only use this because it’s the only app I can stream certain station through. Their ads are awful, cut off the middle of live broadcasts and sometimes get stuck repeating in a loop. At best, they sync their ads with the live broadcast schedule, at worst they randomly play, cutting off the middle of a show. They also play ads in the middle of podcasts and god forbid you press the pause buttons for you will surely hear another ad before play resumes. A month or so ago the repeatedly played a Carl’s junior ad where you could hear the producer speaking before the spot and the sound mix was hilarious. You can hear the “boop” where the ad begins on multiple ads as well. So amateur. I paid a one time $9.99 for this app years ago but now they expect you to subscribe for some reason. Maybe the awful ads are their incentive? The mail channels are basic as well. There are so many better apps but, like I said, this one has some stations that none of the others do. They also didn’t ban certain broadcasters like all the other ‘woke’ apps have but I almost hesitate in saying that for fear they one day will. Reply to dev: You guys say you strive to make this a better app but, seriously, how hard can it be to not spam ads just for hitting the pause button or switching an audio output source?
Not as good as iHeart Radio
by Donny from Queens on 2019/08/01 14:42
The app does well for streaming live radio stations. Where it falls flat is podcasts. It doesn’t remember where I left off in a particular one. Instead, it starts me off at the very beginning 19 times out of 20. I have to take screen shots of the time (if I can remember) when I exit, and then I usually have to wait a minute for it to slowly buffer up to, say, minute 47 of an hour long podcast when I come back o finish ... SUPER annoying. They throttle the download rates to conserve bandwidth on their end for sure. Contrast this with iHeart radio, which remembers where I left off in ANY given podcast and starts me off there. Where this gets REALLY bad is if I exit the app for a minute. Unless I exit and come back within about 10 seconds, it will forget where I left off and I have to go through the whole thing again (except I didn’t screen shot it, so I don’t know the time). It’s garbage on this point, good for live radio, and I don’t use the rest of the functionality. Unfortunately, radio stations go for tunein or iHeart, so there isn’t a choice ... but I would use iHeart for podcasts EVERY TIME over tunein if I could.
Apple Watch Trouble
by Nickolodeamus on 2021/05/02 18:42
Have long used and enjoyed the app on my iPhone and iPad mini. I recently bought an Apple Watch, and the app is really finicky on the watch, especially when trying to start music or change channels. Once music gets going, the start, stop, rewind/forward, and volume controls work fine, but the Watch’s own audio software allows for that with any audio/video source in use at the time...so nothing gained by having a separate Tuned In app on the watch. Because of the unreliability on the Watch, I end up gravitating back to my phone to get music started and, occasionally, to switch channels. Customer Service told me the Watch app is only a remote control for the phone app....but it is not yet an effective one. Will remove the app from my Watch if the functionality doesn’t improve. Aside from being limited in its ability to function as designed, that design only allows the Watch to display a list (no graphics) of recently listened to stations...cannot bring up favorites or browse or do anything else.
Inconsistent At Best
by NashChip on 2021/02/14 20:01
I've exhausted my options with this app. When it works, it works great. But every so often, it has a mind of its own where no matter how long I wait for a station to load, it simply doesn't start. It simply spins in place. Yes, I have strong WiFi. Yes I've tried on LTE. Yes I've tried on 5G. It's not a connectivity issue. I have an iPhone 12. The only way around it is to close the app and restart it, but even that's not a guarantee. I have to try on average 3-5x before the station will load. It also seems to does it out of nowhere in the middle of when the station is working. I was listening to a particularly important news story (again, with full strength internet connectivity) and the station simply dropped. I closed the app and reopened it and of course I had to listen to the 60 seconds of ads that are no longer relevant (today I heard ads about the "upcoming impeachment vote" which has already happened...but I digress) and the station still didn't load. Again, when it works, it goes on a long streak of being perfect, but when it decides to go on strike, a miracle is necessary for it to work again. That's usually when I forget about it for a few weeks and then come back.
The repeat when playing live shows...
by Cool jey on 2019/11/20 14:44
I assume Tunein is made to do this on purpose but it’s far too sensitive....have used tunein for a few years but don’t remember being this bad- when I am listening to a news show live, like CNN, it will replay the same part not twice, but 3-5 times, I assume this is when the app detects a slower connection. I have tried numerous times to mess with settings and can’t get it to stop - it makes listening to anything live virtually impossible unless you want to be driven crazy. This happens over my Sonos which plays everything else perfectly in my home over WiFi (via fiber optic) so not sure why tunein is different. It is also happening more on my phone app. I love tunein for convenience but this repeating is so bad that it makes it not worth fooling with. Shouldn’t be this hard for a normal consumer - I shouldn’t have to adjust a bunch of settings when in a relatively normal and speedy WiFi environment (nor when when I’m on a cellular connection). Trying to listen to impeachment live! I have to install something else today.
scam app
by snack it on 2021/09/22 19:44
First of all, by launching it it offers the welcome screen demanding to sign in to apple and the only button "Activate free trial". You cannot do absolutely anything else. There is workaround for this - you have to start it in offline mode, than that welcome screen disappear. But! there is a catch, even if you enable the online mode, the app cannot understand it (cannot believe this in 2021!). So kill the app and restart, now you can at least see what it offers. But even then, app demands to sign in to apple id..quite annoying, dodnt you think? There is another disgusting catch - app DOES NOT support remote navigation!!! and we are talking about music/radio app in the year 2021!!! How to they push their 100$ subscription is beyond my comprehension. The last thing. It is NOT a free app, NO! it ransack your private device for data, contacting at least 20 scam advertising services (easily countable if you have router or Blokada app). I bet, even if you pay that ridiculous premium subscription of 100$, they continue to profilate you, you just see less ads. Deleted. I will update my review immediately as they make a new minor release to hide honest reviews.
Too many commercials
by ModPodGal on 2021/09/17 12:56
I realize Tune In Radio has to make money somehow but there are just so many commercials now. Every time you switch to another station, you get the obligatory 30 second advertisement. Tune In was not always like that. I know if you get a premium account, there are no commercials but I personally think the monthly fee is too high. I also am still angry that when Tune In Radio removed their “record” feature, they also went into to people’s libraries without warning and removed anything they had recorded. Users should have been informed that that was going to happen. All I ever recorded were occasional radio shows if they were featuring an interesting topic. I had six years worth of the special JFK show that was done by “Coast to Coast AM” every November 22nd. I used to enjoy re-listening to those shows once in a while but Tune In saw fit to remove them from my library. Ditto for a few shows I had recorded about the making of the Mercury Theatre’s historic 1938 broadcast “War of the Worlds”. There are always people who bend the rules and I have no doubt that there were people who might have profited from the record feature and violated copyright infringements. I was not one of those people. I still maintain that it was wrong for Tune In to go in and wipe out their customers’ libraries. Tune In Radio is indeed a wonderful app but all the commercial advertising now is really tiresome. I live in hope that one day my library will be restored.
Terrible and practically useless
by Mndylbrck on 2019/11/19 11:00
If you like commercials or have money to pay to remove ads from every app you use, this app is almost useable (if I felt like paying for it, it would still only get two stars from me). You get all the commercials from whatever show you’re listening to, plus as many ads from the app; which amounts to about 35/65% programming vs. ads. Extremely unstable, especially if you’ve paused it - might as well just close the app and reopen it if you did, because it will basically not work until you do - rendering the pause feature useless. The app struggles to stay connected and fails to reconnect frequently when it loses its connection. The ads are intentionally significantly louder than the programming - obviously on purpose - making it something that wakes you up if you doze off or like falling asleep listening. The constant adjusting of the volume alone makes me tend to turn the app off. Overall: commercial overload with intentional annoyances to make you pay. It’s not a functional enough app to pay for as is, coupled with the intentionality of the annoyances earns this app 1 star from me.
Good app
by Superquinho on 2019/04/03 13:58
I wrote a really bad review before (read it below), and to be fair, I’m back to update. They seem to improve this App. - The random Ads are gone, so no more paid ads during radio programs. - 30 seconds reward/forward function is back The loosing of the track once you receive a phone call, or a video/audio starts playing on another app, still an issue. So if you’d like to reward 30 seconds of missed radio stream, you’re with no luck! Well, hopefully they’ll hire back whoever developer was able to add that feature back in the days! DO NO PAY FOR THIS!!!! Use the free version and save some frustration at least. I’ve been using TuneIn for at least 4 years.... and every “upgrade” this app is getting worse! I listen to a Brazilian radio station, and when they are talking the app thinks its a commercial so a Lowe’s, Home Depot and another ad from TuneIn kicks in and I miss the interview or whatever is happening! And it’s always 2 or 3 ads only.... I don’t remember because all I do it’s curse on the 5th generation of the developers :/ The latest version they got rid of the 30seconds rewind/forward! C’mon developers..... really?!?!?! And the feature I miss the most is that if another audio/video comes up, like a phone call/FaceTime you lose the streaming, having to go back to the app and press play. Back in the days, this wasn’t necessary. Over all, it works, but on the pace this is going, in a near future, you’ll only be able to listen to their paid Ads :/
This is an edit of my previous review—5 stars
by Oli and Jacq on 2021/01/10 00:57
Somehow tune in has cured the app of the bleed through ads and the redundant “you may have missed” problem. Thanks for making the changes and fixing this really useful app! —what I wrote previously for your information and comparing: I could’ve written the summer 2020 review! Exact issues regarding trying to enjoy msnbc commercial free by subscribing via premium. I had many back and forths with friendly help clerks. Never solved the problem. Commercials bled through, five minutes of inanity between segments of news, long, repetitive “something you may not have heard from earlier today”, left us frustrated and finally we are giving up on this app. Wish there was a logical explanation for why they couldn’t deliver what I bought—commercial free. Let me know if you worked it out for real.
My categories continue to be rearranged
by InternetBarb on 2021/07/19 07:16
This app has been pretty good, and I considered purchasing the pro version—but not with simple things getting messed up. Specifically, I created multiple categories to organize my favorites by the genres and ordered each station by frequency of use. Last year the order was getting changed by itself. Recently ALL of my stations are listed together in each of my categories. I worked to curate stations to make it convenient to find what I want, when I want it. Now it takes forever to find what I’m looking for. Also, the description of what is currently playing live fails to be accurate at all and/or update as programs change (specifically, shows on old time radio stations). This has regularly occurred which is another reason I have not yet paid for the pro version. This app is useful and fun/interesting, so it is disappointing that glitches continue to happen instead of getting better.
702 talk radio gets flooded with ads
by Serval1948 on 2019/05/08 08:25
How can I enjoy listening to 702 today, this is Election Day in South Africa and you are spoiling my listening with numerous advertising. (Cutting into talks, news etc). You assured me recently that ads from your side only come on at the beginning-“never during the talks otherwise people will be disillusioned just like me”, you lied! You told me ads during are done by the radio stations. These are all Americans ads 702 talk radio would use to interrupt their news? Come on, You could do better, don’t lie! What use do I have to tell you all this quite a few times. -nothing gets done on your side - you need to make changes in order for your listeners to stay with you. Can you put me in touch with your customer service before I leave your radio service with a bitter taste in my mouth. Thank you, Beate Hammonds Boerne, Texas, USA
Cumbersome
by TradeWorthy iTunes on 2018/03/05 12:18
I’ve been using Tunein for several years. I use it to listen to favorite radio stations from places I used to live. Tunein used to be much simpler and smoother to operate. I have an older iPhone 6, so maybe it’s the phone, but this is my first iPhone, so my comments are based on my experience with Tunein running on the same device. One problem is Tunein stops now when I access a web site. Once the site loads, if I go back to Tunein and hit play, it resumes, but it seems like that should be automatic. Tunein in used to resume on its own when it hit a glitch. If it can play, why do I have to ask it to? This problem may be the station (HFS), but the Tunein screen used to show the name of the song the station was playing, but it no longer does. Tunein just seems more sluggish and awkward than it used to, and over time, it ought to get smoother and more efficient.
Indispensable for this traveler
by C of H on 2019/01/28 18:34
Update: I’m finding it does weird stuff like suddenly repeat the last several seconds or jump forward, especially bad if I have to pause a live stream, but even when I’m current. This has cause me to miss key moments I couldn’t retrieve. I demoted this by a star, hoping the developers pay attention to this annoyance. I’ll keep it at 4 stars for now, but if it gets worse I’ll be back for a further demotion. If it gets better, I’ll be back to elevate it. Original: I use this app several times a week and always on long (5+ hour) trips. Except when I have cell access trouble, I've never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn't pull off the road. Podcasts to the rescue! The only (minor) issue I have is that it can take an annoyingly long time to buffer. This doesn't happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can't complain, though. I use this to access radio a send other broadcasts from all over the world. I especially like to get onto live NPR when I'm traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can't go wrong with a free app like this!
Frustrating no one to ever talk to. No human voice customer service.
by Point of view 5 on 2019/07/10 07:17
This is so annoying. You try to reach out at the time you need help but it has to be EMAIL of course you don’t get a response for hours. By that time you are off to work so you do nothing but email tag just to have a few questions answered. It takes days. FAQ area doesn’t help for anything. It just explains the things they want to talk about. So finally having a moment again to get on email that I’m waiting for and I see it was answered they ask for screenshots now (even though it is explain perfectly)stating they need to see what I am explaining which I believe it’s because the person that opened my email didn’t know how to fix it so it’s his way of passing it on for someone else to answer it. I send off screenshots attached to the reply and it’s been all day and now after midnight and nothing. Customer service is a failure if you can’t just speak to a person especially taking their money
CBS yanked all their stations away from Tunein
by 4th Doctor fan on 2018/08/21 20:20
*To those reviews about subscription or trial period.. you DON'T need to sign up for the Premium service, nor do you need to sign up for Trial period (which does roll into a Premium paid service if you don't cancel, so just DON'T sign up for Trial period, you can just skip past anything regarding signing up). You can listen for FREE, without having to signup for anything. Too bad that CBS pulled all their CBS Sports and CBS Local News stations off from Tunein (but that is not Tunein's fault). And other censorship concerns would only apply if this were a government run service, which it is not. Those commentators have the right to free speech (with their own broadcast antenna, their own newspaper, their own website, etc) for their views, but other companies such as this can not be compelled to distribute such speech if they choose not to carry it. ---orig--- **Everyone needs to complain directly to CBS Radio (and their Entercom owner)... So evidently CBS Radio (and Entercom, who merged with them) is who forced all of their stations off of Tunein as of July/August, requiring you to use their own radio app instead (which is highly inferior to Tunein). Also, that CBS/Entercom app is not supported by Roku and other services (the way Tunein app was used by Roku). First CBS forces you onto their own subscription service for streaming TV, now they do the same thing for radio. Sad !!
Audiobooks gone!! 😞
by DomE080808008080808 on 2018/01/17 16:32
Many users might not be big Audiobook listeners but I am, and considering the high monthly prices for every other audiobook app out there (like Audible or Audiobooks), TuneIn was the best option! I remember when I started using this app, there were a few users and it clearly needed some app work, but I was positively surprised to find the vast collection of audiobooks in the app (with the premium subscription). TuneIn didn’t require you to pay for every new audiobook you listen to but had free amount of audiobooks for the monthly subscription price, apart from all the other radio, news stations and podcasts available. Since I only listen to Audiobooks and Podcasts, there is really no reason for me to keep paying for this app. This is a hue disappointment! I think that if TuneIn would have advertised their audiobook potential they would’ve received a vast amount of new users and a lot would have preferred it over the established Audible/Audiobooks app. If you decide to bring the audiobook section back let me know! I’ll be happy to pay for the subscription!
Excellent Source for Real FACTS, Great for Medical Info
by Rabbi BenHaAdam on 2021/09/13 10:02
WUNC is wonderful at reporting general mews reports AND medical information. By choosing carefully, one can benefit from SOME of their podcasts, like People’s Pharmacy. UNFORTUNATELY, they feel called upon to slant SOME ISSUES to their liking. Ex: Politics: Be careful here! They push a liberal/socialist agenda and CHOOSE to report almost solely in support of this “worldview.” Ex: Climate Change: No matter what happens with weather, their fertile imaginations report it as due to climate change. Ex: Politics: They report ONLY about pre-born children as blobs of tissue to be murdered at the mother’s CONVENIENCE. They ate EXTREME in this ignorant view. After decades of listening, this is just one example of REPORTING their opinion as “news.” Ex: “GUESTS/fellow REPORTERS: Almost ALWAYS, they ONLY interview those who hold THEIR opinion. PROOF: The podcasts. PROOF: LOTS of apostate church (main line, Rev. B, pro-abortion Catholics, etc. leaders glorified, interviewed. But given the high % of Christians/Messianic Jews in the area, WHEN do they EVER include REAL (Bible believers, Southern Baptist LEADERS, those preachers on WRAL, Messianic Rabbi, etc. FOR THE VERY EDUCATED, they have really good reporting WHEN they stick to the facts. So, IF YOU KNOW HOW to DISREGARD the junk, they are an excellent source of information.
A very fine internet tuner - though buffering is question
by Illuminer on 2017/11/18 18:05
So far, this is my favorite radio internet tuner. It covers so many fine stations, and allows you to buffer or store a station's past minutes if you put it on hold. It has tendency to go into a buffer mode erratically and repeats several previous seconds every so often. Actually, a bit too often for comfort. Otherwise, it works flawlessly. As it does store buffered sections, I wish there was a way to know when I'm listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its "live" radio mode , as well being able to optionally go back and rehear previous sections of the broadcast. An update button to shift to live or shift to the buffered sections would be nice. One other needed fix is that quite often, the banner naming the program doesn't match. "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" is listed as "Car Talk"
Great app; but been glitching a lot last 1.5 months
by Write2diaz on 2021/10/21 00:55
Been listening to cnn, npr, msnbc, and college football and more for over 2 yrs or so. Ended my SiriusXM subscription I had since 2006 because of TuneIn. It’s been my go to app for streaming all. Was very happy with it... LATELY, HOWEVER it’s been very glitchy. Since I listen up to 8 hours a day... I no longer find the most updated podcast- MarketPlace for example stopped updating since late Sept. or I can’t always find past shows-it only shows other radio companies that are currently playing the show. What happened? This happens to other podcast too. The UI is still a little confusing- I still can’t place my favorite channels in the order I want -top to bottom. I rearrange them in edit mode, save it and it just reverts to what was all along. For now- 3/5 stars. Make this easy to use.
Easier than station sites & apps
by Outdoor Janitor on 2019/03/25 14:03
Often works better than a station’s own app or web site player —began to use this app when it was difficult to get my desktop to start the listen live feature of a local news talk station. It's got a bit of a delay, but that's cool if you are vein, and you want to hear what you said on a call-in show – but aside from that, having a profile with my favorite Christian, & news stations – & being able to pick a syndicated show, and listen even if it's from across the nation, is cool. Occasionally some glitch causes 5 to 30 seconds of a show to repeat, but I don't believe anything is ever dropped…
Poor buffering of stream
by richardinMaine on 2019/11/21 20:06
I’ve used TuneIn for listening to news. The app have very poor buffering performance. This means the stream is constantly pausing while it buffers. I understand this can happen occasionally when cell reception is marginal, but even with a strong cellular signal buffering happens every 10 minutes or so. The buffering period can last several minutes and often when it does start playing it will play 10 seconds then repeat those same 10 seconds two or three times in a row then continue with the stream. It doesn’t matter what station I stream the buffering issue always occurs. I haven’t found a setting for setting buffer size. I would like to get premium service but the app’s performance to too poor. All other streaming services I use, such as direct streaming from radio stations or podcasts NEVER buffer.
Dishonest company. Buyer beware!
by My MT Brain on 2018/12/15 20:50
Last year TuneIn reduced their price and touted their huge audiobook selection which got me to join. Then they dropped the feature within weeks. A reputable company would have either stated that audiobooks would be going away, or offered a refund for cost of the service given such a key feature was removed. I thought, lesson learned and set up my calendar to remind me to cancel a month before my subscription ended. When I logged in last month to cancel, there was no way to cancel online. I had to contact TuneIn via their email. I contacted them and they told me to cancel online. I replied I was not able to do so, that their site informed me to contact tech support. Then they said they cancelled my service and “Rest assured your subscription will not auto renew on your next billing date”. I’m sure you see this coming, yep they charged me! So now I have to waste more time trying to get my money back from these thieves. Stay away. You have been warned.
My problem persists
by Endmysuff34ing on 2020/05/10 23:07
FIX THIS AND STOP WITH THE AUTOMATED RESPONSES. I used to think the problem where it would restart my podcast was only due to my earbuds at the time, but I have since switched phones and earbuds many times and still have had the same issue. Every time I pause a podcast for more than a minute or so; it fully restarts the podcast. This is extremely frustrating. I constantly have to re scrub through the podcast to find where I left off just because it constantly restarts it. I love this app for podcasts and I use it all the time to download podcasts, I will not however continue using this app if this problem persists. I would save more time just using another app that saves my spot in the podcast. If you could please look into this and fix it that would be great. I’ve had this issue for almost a year now. —UPDATE— It now restarts my podcast EVERY TIME I pause it. This is ridiculous. SUCH AN EASY FIX.
Unlistenable
by Meauxseph on 2020/07/20 18:09
I’ve been listening to Fox News via Tune In since mid-March. While the content is as expected, the ads for both sponsors and Tune In programming makes the experience awful. The most recent example is a Cox Communications (which is misogynistic, though that’s not Tune In’s fault) ad which plays at least three times per break, sometimes even consecutively. This has been the norm since I began using the app. Ads will repeat and replay frequently, which is especially frustrating given the content of ads like the aforementioned Cox ad. I guarantee that I will not listen to Tune In content because of this and am no longer interested in subscribing for the ad-free version. I suspect Tune In either does this intentionally to push people to sub or that they have a programming issue. I spent years working in terrestrial radio and guarantee a programming flaw like this would kill a station if left unresolved very quickly.
Love the concept, but...
by Papa Smurf 05-07 on 2018/04/08 18:23
In theory, I should love TuneIn. Pay for the premium package...get all of my favorite sports teams on audio (minus Liverpool who I at least get to see on TV a fair bit). Reality doesn’t always match with theory, however, thusly the two-star rating. Why? Often, the streams are spotty, which is to say that sometimes they don’t come in at all, break-up into a spotty mess, or like I’ve been experiencing lately with the Red Sox games, completely not connecting at all. In order to listen, I’ve had to delete the app, reload it, log back in and then re-try the audio for the game. Sometimes it works...other times it stops the feed and I have to repeat the whole process to get it to work again, and hope the same failing doesn’t re-emerge. I’m giving it another week of baseball season. If a new update doesn’t fix it, I’ll head back to paying for sports audio on parents apps. At least there I’ll get a largely uninterrupted stream.
Great app with one mentally disturbing problem
by GentileSlayr on 2019/12/17 01:54
I listen to tune in for MSNBC live. That is all I listen to. I know the ads are skippable. But you have to stop playing the same ads over and over and over and over and over again. Especially three the AARP ad. Comcast business ad and some ad about cancer that I’m sure makes sense on TV but is just sad and kind of pointless since there is like 10 seconds of silence before the end slogan. But seriously they have been playing the same Comcast ad for 3 years! I will never use Comcast under any circumstances because of this. And also can they at least rotate hearing the same ad then go back to MSNBC they say we will be right back then u play the same ad again. It’s so frustrating I just mute it and end up missing parts of the show. Also they updated the app so when u pause and un pause they play the same Comcast commercial agggggghhhhhh!
Love it, but one problem...
by GO BREWERS!!! on 2018/09/18 22:47
I love that I can listen to Brewer games wherever I’m at big fan. The only problem I have with this app is even if I have two out of my four bars of signal it buffers for ever I have to shut down the app and restart it, which wouldn’t be a problem if I could go right back in to an old game that I’m listening to and he would pick up where it left off instead of starting all over. This is also a problem because it takes so long for the games load since they are hours long so if it shuts down when I’m two hours into a game and I can only scan 30 seconds ahead this obviously takes way too long and then I end up getting so fed up because I’m trying to work while I’m listening to this day I cannot listen to the game anymore so I have to switch my app.
Good but MLB games are little behind
by MissTheMarinersButNotSeattle on 2019/09/25 00:02
I’ve used TuneIN for a while now for listening to DV Radio, 710 ESPN, and KIRO 97.3 for the Seattle Mariners games. However, I recently moved away and didn’t realize the radio stations were blacked-out during games if you were out of state. So, I just signed up for premium last week so I could listen to the Mariners games. Unfortunately the live broadcast is about 2 to 3 plays behind the other sports apps. I would get notifications on my phone about scoring plays or home runs at least 2 plays early. Easy fix though, I just turned off the notifications on the other apps. I’m not going to complain too much because the premium subscription served its purpose... I got to listen to the games. I will most likely subscribe again next season.
Rip off!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by joker12483 on 2019/06/21 18:36
Be extremely careful with this app, I unfortunately downloaded this junk by mistake in April of 2018 as soon as it was downloaded I deleted it from my phone. Literally wasn’t on my phone for more than five minutes! It was apparently free for a week after that you are charged $9.99 a month without agreeing to it until you cancel the subscription that you never agreed too!!!! Deleting a app will not cancel a subscription, which absolutely makes no sense at all. Seriously how ridiculous......yeah let’s delete this but start paying for it , sounds good!!!! So I’ve been charged $150 to date and luckily noticed it on my bank statement. Immediately cancelled the subscription that I never asked for or agreed too and never got notification of !!! I have no clue if this app is good or not even though I have had a subscription for almost two years without knowing but I certainly wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone.
Does not keep track of playhead

So, you are listening to a podcast, but are taking a break for a few minutes to do something else. Now, you switch back to the app and discover that TuneIn kicked you out of the stream, but puts a speaker symbol next to the most-recently played episode. You may rightfully think that you can simply continue where you left off by selecting that podcast again, but you would be very mistaken. TuneIn does not remember how far into the podcast you were, it simply starts from scratch. Nice ... not. Why does it kick you back to the overview screen after you had placed the app into the background for a few minutes, and why can’t it remember the playhead position? An enigma wrapped in a mystery that only the talented programmers at TuneIn will know the answers to. I personally am still using this program to listen to NPR, but wouldn’t mind finding a smarter app.
App shuts down every time I look at another app on my iPhone 7.
by Erza10 on 2019/10/09 19:52
Ever since the update to IOS 13, this app is not working the way it used to. If I pause the stream & then start it again & then look at another app while listening to the the tune-in app, the tune in app shuts down & I have to open it up & restart it again. Also even just looking at another app while listening to something in Tune in app, it will shut down, sometimes numerous times within an hour. I don’t understand why this is happening since these problems were not there in the past. I hope this can be fixed. Don’t know if it’s a compatibility problem. I have rebooted my phone & even deleted app & uploaded again & I still have the same problem noted above.
Used to be great; now streaming is erratic
by Diddyboyy on 2020/06/27 17:50
I used to love this app, six months ago I would’ve given it five stars. I am a premium subscriber, I like to listen to my local pro sport teams on this app . However, over the last six months, the quality of streaming has suffered greatly. It drops the stream all the time, both on Wi-Fi and on cellular data. It just inexplicably drops and takes a while to reconnect. It buffers over and over again. Occasionally it will not reconnect at all and I have to close the app and reopen it. I’m not sure what is happening, everything is up-to-date on my cell phone, it’s an iPhone X, running the latest iOS. I searched the app for a way to communicate directly with the company or developer. Unfortunately, they do not offer a “contact us“ option on their app. There is no way to inform them of this problem, other than leaving a bad review. Please fix, this app used to be great!
Something’s wrong! Please fix it!
by Ljenz61 on 2020/04/21 04:19
For several weeks now, the app interrupts my listening pleasure to announce that the particular channel I’ve chosen—MSNBC—is “experiencing difficulty”. It’s only with MSNBC, and it occurs several times per day, every single day. Then the announcement interrupts whatever MSNBC show I’m enjoying for recordings of earlier shows while the glitch is supposedly being fixed. Then last week, the app started playing weird, loud music—no announcement, just the music. After several minutes—if I continue listening—the transmission switches back to MSNBC. Usually, I do not continue listening; I switch to CNN or CSPAN or almost anything else besides the loud, weird music. IDK what’s going on, but the app would get five stars for content from me, if these annoying interruptions didn’t occur several times a day!
I use it constantly
by Kdhunter on 2020/08/27 23:49
Some platform of this type is going to be the future of radio. I use this all the time to listen to radio stations across the country, which is a big deal for avid jazz and classical music fan. Then there is the ability to timeshift virtually newscast from across the country since i live in EST. Glitches I've noted are mostly a function of Internet connection. At work, it's virtually flawless because we have a super fast connection. At home, there are interruptions. but I have to say even those are rare. I would like it if they created a way to remove folders once you’ve created them bc they stand in the way of getting to “favorites” which creates too many clicks before you get to the station you want.
Gone downhill in the past year!
by Squish Popper on 2021/09/30 14:21
I loved this app when I first downloaded it. I’d listen to MSNBC and a couple of radio stations outside my area, while driving or at the office. It’s been my go to app until recently-the constant pausing, skipping and repeating segments is truly frustrating. It NEVER pauses during commercials, always during a broadcast. The Blues/R&B station I listen to is commercial free, but TuneIn throws them in and more times than not it’s in the middle of a song. Once these glitches start, any broadcast rarely plays for more than a minute before it automatically pauses, repeats or skips. It’s insanely frustrating! The only thing that is consistent are the replies from the developers stating they’re sorry and promise to fix the problem with the next update. The past 5 updates have yet to rectify any of these problems! I cannot give it a better rating until they get their act together and fix their mess.
Generally I like it but one huge headache
by COC Champ on 2020/03/27 14:07
I really like the app. It allows me to listen to stations and music I otherwise wouldn’t hear living where I am. It also is a great way to listen to several podcasts. But my headache comes from the fact that because I mainly listen to the podcasts to and from work, I don’t listen to them all in one sitting. So I try to continue with the same podcast I was listening to the truck ride before so to speak. It would be nice if the podcast would remember where I was in the podcast from the last time rather than starting over at the first. Then I have to let it download to the spot I was and most of the time I don’t look at the timer to see where I am leaving off when I get out of the truck. Please get that fixed. It is very frustrating.
I agree...
by ejborg on 2021/10/22 23:21
...with the previous reviewer. If the developers think they fixed these problems they’re wrong. Furthermore, I find myself sitting here on MSNBC listening to the very advertising that I PAID to avoid. Cars, shoes, products of all kinds. All this interspersed with “news [I] may have missed from earlier today,” which I haven’t missed, of course, because TuneIn plays the same clips over and over. PLUS, I still haven’t figured out how to communicate my concerns (OK, let’s just call them what they really are...”complaints”) directly to customer “service”. Finding CS at TuneIn is harder than navigating a Halloween corn maze. I shouldn’t have to leave an angry review in order to get your attention. What I HAVE finally figured out is how to cancel my subscription. Do you really want to make cancellation easier than complaint resolution? I’ve never been closer to canceling a subscription to anything as I am right now with TuneIn.
Buffering endlessly
by Erfox on 2019/12/30 15:53
I used to love this app. I recommended it to everyone. About a year ago, it started having a glitch where it would repeat the same 10-30 seconds of sound over and over and over. I tried to find solutions and the only comment was “it’s buffering” I tried to turn phone off. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app (as if that were actually ever possible on an iPhone). The only change I noticed was that the monthly premium went up on the reinstall. Eventually I gave up. I deleted the app and my premium service. Occasionally I’ll come back and listen to non-premium channels, but you can’t get that everywhere.
Ah TuneIn, why didn’t you raise the price?
by Kiriel62 on 2018/01/23 23:03
When it was decided that audiobooks weren’t working as intended, the first option was to dump them. Now I know soooo many people think $8 a month is reasonable for unlimited listening, I know that is crazy. There were no limitations like the library where you have to wait for the book to come back in. One book costs more to purchase than Tunein’s premium price. Now why didn’t you first TRY to raise your price. I would have paid 3x or more for access to this many books. I was one of the ones listening all-the-time. Now my choice is Playster which is so horrible so far, can’t find books, weirdness in charges, loses place etc. I can’t do it. I am going back to library. At least I still have Rachel & Bill at TuneIn.
Ads are interrupting programming and are too intrusive
by Phuoc-SD on 2019/08/12 19:48
No longer as great as it used to be. I’m totally cool with ads to help developers and content owners produce great apps or great content. I would pay if the value proposition makes sense. Tune In used to work really well with ads. I noticed that the ads on Tune In are completely different from what is on the radio, which makes sense. They used to come during the natural commercial breaks in the programming and all worked well. Lately I’m finding that’s not the case. Ads are coming on the middle of someone speaking and are way too intrusive. I find I’m using Tune In less and less and opting for my favorite station’s native apps, web streaming in the browser or hustling literally tuning back into the radio. Just like people are going vintage with many other things from vinyl to clothing, I predict people will come back to the radio if this keeps up.
Commercial volume & PSA’s
by SuzieQZgladiolies on 2019/12/19 15:20
TuneIn is great in many ways, but we’re looking for alternative streaming venues. The main reason is that commercials and Public Service announcements blare through the speakers at extreme levels. We are constantly jolted by the volume changes and the need to decrease commercial sound levels is more and more irritating. Also the actual program volume levels are so low we often can’t hear the programs, but commercial breaks are 10 times louder. Keeping everything at the same volume level is what we’re looking for. Finally the exact same PSA’s are broadcast during breaks and have not changed in over ten years.
Keeps cutting off all the time
by keeps cutting off on 2018/12/08 13:32
I have several Radio apps on my iPodAnd don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometime to start and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other app and don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometimes it starts and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other apps
Not working on Apple Watch, sneaky about subscription
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/08/07 15:41
UPDATE: After deleting and reinstalling the apps several times, TuneIn suddenly began working properly on Apple Watch and iPhone. I have revised my star rating upward accordingly. But I can’t give more than three stars because of the sneaky first screen after installation that tries to trick the new person into a pricey subscription. *** The app plays nicely on my iPhone, but on the watch it does not install. I reinstalled the app. The previous version at least installed, though it was unresponsive on the watch after that. Other watch apps are working normally. Watch v. 4. , watchOS 5.2.1., iOS 12.3.1. For honesty, you should quit advertising that the app supports Apple Watch. I have emailed Support, but none of the suggestions worked.
Used to work.....
by ugg, whats in a nickname on 2020/08/18 10:49
I read several of the reviews and agree, it used to be a reliable and trusted service. I usually listened over the google speakers, not the iPad, but it became totally unreliable many months ago and jusr stops working regularly, requiring a restart, then it works again for a while and stops. Tunein “support” is useless, with no phone and only email responses that just repeat the same incorrect non answers. Clearly they have a problem that they have no idea how to fix. Even writing their CEO does not get an honest or competent response. Lately it elicits no response at all. It’s sad when something that worked well goes awry and there is no ability to repair it. I listen to CNN and MSNBC on tunein. All other services, such as pandora work the same as they did before, so the excuse that google changed something rings hollow as the others seem to have adapted.
Charged during free trial
by HollyDay on 2020/03/05 06:51
I wanted to listen to world news on the road and decided to give this app a try. It offered a 7-day free trial for commercial-free and once I said yes, I got charged on my credit card. 🤔 I contacted the developer within an hour of being the receipt, but I'm not even sure why this would happen on this app, through the App Store, on my Apple account when it was literally an hour into my 7-day trial? At least the developer is responsive and I've contacted Apple as well, but this annoying. I'll think again before agreeing to trial any future app. The app itself though worked fine on my mobile data while driving. The options are limited, but that's probably due to what's available on the radio waves, rather than an app issue. I'll increase rating (4 stars) if my money is returned.

ads every 10 minutes
by anbvs on 2021/11/25 16:15
So far was a great app, now I’m getting ads every 10 minutes. It’s very very annoying specially when you listen a podcast and when they push an ads. Delete and never come back until you fix that.

So much for no ads on Tunin Premium
by DW Berner Girl on 2021/11/24 01:34
All day long today, ads have been present on MSNBC. Tunin, you need to fix the premium version. No usual recent news clips, just ads taking on average of 20 minutes/1 hour segment. This was not the case yesterday so am wondering if someone does this manually and called in sick.

Good but not great
by Pak-A-Nut on 2021/11/23 16:33
While this is a reliable live streaming app, the inclusion of video ads in an audio app is ridiculous. I have no issues with ads in a free streaming app, in fact I think it’s a great model. If I’m driving or jogging, it’s not convenient or safe to watch an ad or keep the screen open. Fix this and I’ll bump it to 5 stars.

Loved using TuneIn when I moved out of Tucson to listen to Arizona Wildcat games. Now it’s locked behind Premium subscription, when in the past it wasn’t. I get trying to push people to pay but it just means I won’t be using an app I used to love.
Too many adds
by raulyyyy on 2021/11/21 17:06
It must been 10 years since I have listen to tune in , never have a problem , till now , you guys are putting now adds every 15 minutes, I mean we all ready had adds before. It was even when you open the screen. We all see and herd adds before, and it was cool. Now it seems like there is too many , must been like in the last week or so. Looking for a new app now. Thanks guys

Almost all functions are on delay
by Tehun on 2021/11/19 15:04
The app USED TO be great. It would hold your place if you had to pick up where you left off. Now it barely does. But the worst part is that every time you let the app play in the background and go back to it to hit ANY control… there’s at least a 6 second delay before the action is executed. If you leave the app before the delay is fully processed, you have to start over again. My Apple based podcast app is a little less easy to scroll through my favorite shows, but the fact that there’s no delay AND my place on any show is remembered puts the Apple app way above Tunein now
Simple and Few Ads
by Gddfjf on 2021/11/19 12:27
App has simple layout and only an ad at the beginning of a play. That’s quite generous! Definitely function over fashion and that’s a good thing. Loads quickly, is responsive and light. It’s a radio after all not a video.

Unfortunately the interface is horrible
by Kingdaddy2000 on 2021/11/18 01:21
It freezes and locks up most of the time on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. I have tried using the app for quite some time yet that interface problem is bad. For example l love that you can pause a station. But when I try I resume, I hit the play button over and over again and nothing happens until it decides to start again on its own. And it maintains a list of previous stations at the bottom of the screen, which is a bad location because it’s too easy to accidentally change channels when you don’t want to. The app needs work.
Great App
by FArouet on 2021/11/17 16:45
InTune is one of the very most useful apps. Want to listen to your college NPR station? No problem (at least getting mine).
I get the commercials
by Eboniblu72 on 2021/11/17 12:26
But every thirty to forty-five seconds? Literally cutting into programming. Over and over. Response: you are correct and I’ve forums that it was that particular station that had the commercials going mid-stream. I’ve since changed the station as it is nationally syndicated. I have not experienced that same issue. Thank you.

by Nathanmh on 2021/11/17 02:57

First, I do wish that if you purchased the app on Google, that the same purchase would qualify for Apple. I also wish that you could still schedule recordings like an older version allowed. But, having said those two bits, it still is a great app. Preferable to I Heart Radio IMO. Feels like fewer ads and less intrusion.
Happy Tune in

Wastervtn I love tune in. I have a metered connection and can’t watch too much video so with tune in I can hear what is happening around the world in any language I want to hear and it takes a fraction of the bandwidth. My favorite stations are in Guam, Finland and Sweden. Thank god it’s Tistai!

Too long…
by No Too Happy Guy! on 2021/11/15 03:07
Each time I change a station to listen to, every time I turn on my favorite app, Tune-in, I have to painstakingly listen to a 28 second advertisement for the clear purpose of getting me to purchase a premium subscription; and now listening to any college game is only a premium option! Not a good move Tune-in! Less ad time and listening to college games should be like it once was ; FREE!

So-so
by tekbarrier on 2021/11/13 03:20
Sometimes it works fine, other times it doesn't. At times it only plays for a few seconds before buffering, doing this over and over and over again. And sometimes after playing for a short while it completely closes and I have to re-open it and start over. There are a lot of bugs in the system that need to be worked out.

Disappointing changes
by JBStiles00 on 2021/11/11 23:40
I used to use this all the time and found it easy to use. Lately, it seems like it just one constant push to get you to “upgrade” to the paid version. Many feeds moved behind paywalls. I going to look elsewhere.
Horrible
by end-of-the-rope on 2021/11/11 21:08
Apple needs to remove the editor choice rating. Look at recent reviews, not old ones. Tune-In used to be very good and is now horrendous. Even after several recent updates—freezes, crashes, slow as molasses, basic functions like pause/play/stop just don’t work—I could go on, but instead I’m just migrating completely to the Apple Podcast App. I recommend others do the same.

Don’t pay for premium!! It does not work.
by Wordmensch on 2021/11/10 06:00
Somehow, the ads still show up regularly. It sometimes blocks the ads (substituting replays of earlier excerpts), but increasingly the ads will play. In addition, the excerpts that are played during commercial breaks are often repeated- which is as tedious as listening to an insipid commercial!! I submitted a complaint and got a response - two days later - asking me to give them dates and times of the commercials. As though I am making notes. THEY KNOW THIS IS HAPPENING. THEY SIMPLY DONT CARE. AND THEY WEREN’T EVEN CONTRITE. NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST.

I downloaded this to listen to a Patriots game while mowing my lawn. Audio kept dropping for mins at a time and I would miss 1-3 plays. I thought it was my wifi so turned it off, no difference. So annoying and a deal breaker for me. I'm not going to pay money for a service can not perform it's number one feature. Don't waste your time past the fee trial.

$14.99/mo. Rip Off
by TheBigRonbowski on 2021/11/07 18:52
Purchased the Premium version at $14.99/mo. to listen to NFL games but was met with consistent buffering issues. Add on to that TuneIn’s own advertisements they throw in DURING the game’s broadcast! Absolute joke of an app for the price you pay per month to get NFL access.
Too many adds
by Buffalo315 on 2021/11/07 18:49
I pay for this service. I should not have to listen to an add every time I switch stations.
NFL is NOT free
by Werd911 on 2021/11/07 18:46
They advertise “listen free”. They advertise “listen to NFL”. However NFL games are NOT free. When you try to listen, it prompts you to start your free 7 day premium trial, after that, $14.99 a month! For radio! Awful. I won’t do it. It used to actually be free; you’ve lost me. Tune In, if you need more money, charge your advertisers more money. Not me.

Ponderous, all things to all people, monthly payment, advertisements, type of app. I like others paid the 10 bucks for no ads, but over the last two years ads returned with subscription fees to turn them off. I hardly use this app anymore. I listen to one or two genres and do not need the bells and whistles, nor the ads, nor another monthly bill.

As a single dad with sole custody of my 11 and 12 year old kids for nearly 8 years, I don’t have much time to follow sports. And after finally cutting the cord on costly cable with very few viewing choices, this ESPN radio app has been a godsend, especially when I’m squeezing in a workout at the gym. Love it!

Impossible to listen to!
by Fed#Up! on 2020/06/12 13:01
I primarily use TuneIn to listen to MSNBC “commercial free live”. It used to work flawlessly. In the last six months or so, it has become increasingly impossible to listen to. The broadcast stutters, then stops, then jumps forward, then repeats parts you have heard before, then stops altogether. Rinse, repeat all the above. In the place of commercials, the app used to play short pieces of items “from earlier today that you might not have heard”. I have heard the exact same past news snippets now for months—they are definitely not all “from today”. And often it is not past news I hear, but parts of commercials. (I am paying for commercial free.) The only time this spring that the stuttering, stopping and repeating did not happen was when content was interrupted instead with the announcement that “this station is experiencing technical difficulties”. Ironic that said difficulties were absent during this time—but they are back now that the “This station is experiencing...” interruptions have stopped. I have an image in my head of a group of chimps at the controls, randomly pushing all the buttons in front of them, while eating popcorn and spilling soda all over the control board. This is a maddening listening experience, and I have paid good money for nothing! Buyer beware!!!!
App crash
by wetpaint86 on 2021/07/10 17:27
I listen to sports events while working and it was awesome when I first got the app. All the major sports has games here now only a few do and when listening I have to stop working ans restart the app literally every 1-2 minutes because it will just turn itself off and there’s nothing more frustrating than something exciting happening and in the middle of the announcers excitement the app stops so I turn it back on to not even know what happened because it takes forever to restart the app is when it does start it pays a commercial I have heard 1000 times then returns to the game and then shuts off again in a few seconds. I have messaged to cancel my plan and they won’t respond so I’m going to have to cancel my debit card and set up everything I use auto bill on the get this over. If this app was free it would still be too much to pay.
Need to fix buffering
by DrumGuy6 on 2020/03/12 11:32
Update: The buffering was fixed and worked for a period of months, however recently the ability to pause and playback was removed from the app. Now hitting pause will only save data for a minute or so, then no additional steam is saved and the recording just jumps forward to live. Prior to this the app would save about 30min before jumping to live. This is a huge setback in app performance and makes the app almost useless, since even a short phone call will result in missing part of a broadcast. Hopefully this feature is restored, in the meantime I will unfortunately have to look for a new app. Too bad because I have used this for years and enjoyed it. First of all and probably most importantly, the app content is great. However there are issues with buffering that need to be fixed. The app offers pause and RW/FF functions, but if you pause for even a short time the app will skip ahead midstream once you are playing back the buffered content. Also when playing back buffered content it will randomly repeat a few second long portion several times. Buffering is a feature used on many apps these days and it usually works flawlessly, this app needs to fix these issues to compete. If buffering was fixed this would be a 5 star review.
Horrible
by chrisloyd on 2021/03/05 01:17
I only use this because it’s the only app I can stream certain station through. Their ads are awful, cut off the middle of live broadcasts and sometimes get stuck repeating in a loop. At best, they sync their ads with the live broadcast schedule, at worst they randomly play, cutting off the middle of a show. They also play ads in the middle of podcasts and god forbid you press the pause buttons for you will surely hear another ad before play resumes. A month or so ago the repeatedly played a Carl’s junior ad where you could hear the producer speaking before the spot and the sound mix was hilarious. You can hear the “boop” where the ad begins on multiple ads as well. So amateur. I paid a one time $9.99 for this app years ago but now they expect you to subscribe for some reason. Maybe the awful ads are their incentive? The mail channels are basic as well. There are so many better apps but, like I said, this one has some stations that none of the others do. They also didn’t ban certain broadcasters like all the other ‘woke’ apps have but I almost hesitate in saying that for fear they one day will. Reply to dev: You guys say you strive to make this a better app but, seriously, how hard can it be to not spam ads just for hitting the pause button or switching an audio output source?
Not as good as iHeart Radio
by Donny from Queens on 2019/08/01 14:42
The app does well for streaming live radio stations. Where it falls flat is podcasts. It doesn’t remember where I left off in a particular one. Instead, it starts me off at the very beginning 19 times out of 20. I have to take screen shots of the time (if I can remember) when I exit, and then I usually have to wait a minute for it to slowly buffer up to, say, minute 47 of an hour long podcast when I come back o finish ... SUPER annoying. They throttle the download rates to conserve bandwidth on their end for sure. Contrast this with iHeart radio, which remembers where I left off in ANY given podcast and starts me off there. Where this gets REALLY bad is if I exit the app for a minute. Unless I exit and come back within about 10 seconds, it will forget where I left off and I have to go through the whole thing again (except I didn’t screen shot it, so I don’t know the time). It’s garbage on this point, good for live radio, and I don’t use the rest of the functionality. Unfortunately, radio stations go for tunein or iHeart, so there isn’t a choice ... but I would use iHeart for podcasts EVERY TIME over tunein if I could.
Apple Watch Trouble
by Nickolodeamus on 2021/05/02 18:42
Have long used and enjoyed the app on my iPhone and iPad mini. I recently bought an Apple Watch, and the app is really finicky on the watch, especially when trying to start music or change channels. Once music gets going, the start, stop, rewind/forward, and volume controls work fine, but the Watch’s own audio software allows for that with any audio/video source in use at the time...so nothing gained by having a separate Tuned In app on the watch. Because of the unreliability on the Watch, I end up gravitating back to my phone to get music started and, occasionally, to switch channels. Customer Service told me the Watch app is only a remote control for the phone app....but it is not yet an effective one. Will remove the app from my Watch if the functionality doesn’t improve. Aside from being limited in its ability to function as designed, that design only allows the Watch to display a list (no graphics) of recently listened to stations...cannot bring up favorites or browse or do anything else.
Inconsistent At Best
by NashChip on 2021/02/14 20:01
I've exhausted my options with this app. When it works, it works great. But every so often, it has a mind of its own where no matter how long I wait for a station to load, it simply doesn't start. It simply spins in place. Yes, I have strong WiFi. Yes I've tried on LTE. Yes I've tried on 5G. It's not a connectivity issue. I have an iPhone 12. The only way around it is to close the app and restart it, but even that's not a guarantee. I have to try on average 3-5x before the station will load. It also seems to does it out of nowhere in the middle of when the station is working. I was listening to a particularly important news story (again, with full strength internet connectivity) and the station simply dropped. I closed the app and reopened it and of course I had to listen to the 60 seconds of ads that are no longer relevant (today I heard ads about the "upcoming impeachment vote" which has already happened...but I digress) and the station still didn't load. Again, when it works, it goes on a long streak of being perfect, but when it decides to go on strike, a miracle is necessary for it to work again. That's usually when I forget about it for a few weeks and then come back.
The repeat when playing live shows...
by Cool jey on 2019/11/20 14:44
I assume Tunein is made to do this on purpose but it’s far too sensitive....have used tunein for a few years but don’t remember being this bad- when I am listening to a news show live, like CNN, it will replay the same part not twice, but 3-5 times, I assume this is when the app detects a slower connection. I have tried numerous times to mess with settings and can’t get it to stop - it makes listening to anything live virtually impossible unless you want to be driven crazy. This happens over my Sonos which plays everything else perfectly in my home over WiFi (via fiber optic) so not sure why tunein is different. It is also happening more on my phone app. I love tunein for convenience but this repeating is so bad that it makes it not worth fooling with. Shouldn’t be this hard for a normal consumer - I shouldn’t have to adjust a bunch of settings when in a relatively normal and speedy WiFi environment (nor when when I’m on a cellular connection). Trying to listen to impeachment live! I have to install something else today.
scam app
by snack it on 2021/09/22 19:44
First of all, by launching it it offers the welcome screen demanding to sign in to apple and the only button "Activate free trial". You cannot do absolutely anything else. There is workaround for this - you have to start it in offline mode, than that welcome screen disappear. But! there is a catch, even if you enable the online mode, the app cannot understand it (cannot believe this in 2021!). So kill the app and restart, now you can at least see what it offers. But even then, app demands to sign in to apple id..quite annoying, dodnt you think? There is another disgusting catch - app DOES NOT support remote navigation!!! and we are talking about music/radio app in the year 2021!!! How to they push their 100$ subscription is beyond my comprehension. The last thing. It is NOT a free app, NO! it ransack your private device for data, contacting at least 20 scam advertising services (easily countable if you have router or Blokada app). I bet, even if you pay that ridiculous premium subscription of 100$, they continue to profilate you, you just see less ads. Deleted. I will update my review immediately as they make a new minor release to hide honest reviews.
Too many commercials
by ModPodGal on 2021/09/17 12:56
I realize Tune In Radio has to make money somehow but there are just so many commercials now. Every time you switch to another station, you get the obligatory 30 second advertisement. Tune In was not always like that. I know if you get a premium account, there are no commercials but I personally think the monthly fee is too high. I also am still angry that when Tune In Radio removed their “record” feature, they also went into to people’s libraries without warning and removed anything they had recorded. Users should have been informed that that was going to happen. All I ever recorded were occasional radio shows if they were featuring an interesting topic. I had six years worth of the special JFK show that was done by “Coast to Coast AM” every November 22nd. I used to enjoy re-listening to those shows once in a while but Tune In saw fit to remove them from my library. Ditto for a few shows I had recorded about the making of the Mercury Theatre’s historic 1938 broadcast “War of the Worlds”. There are always people who bend the rules and I have no doubt that there were people who might have profited from the record feature and violated copyright infringements. I was not one of those people. I still maintain that it was wrong for Tune In to go in and wipe out their customers’ libraries. Tune In Radio is indeed a wonderful app but all the commercial advertising now is really tiresome. I live in hope that one day my library will be restored.
Terrible and practically useless
by Mndylbrck on 2019/11/19 11:00
If you like commercials or have money to pay to remove ads from every app you use, this app is almost useable (if I felt like paying for it, it would still only get two stars from me). You get all the commercials from whatever show you’re listening to, plus as many ads from the app; which amounts to about 35/65% programming vs. ads. Extremely unstable, especially if you’ve paused it - might as well just close the app and reopen it if you did, because it will basically not work until you do - rendering the pause feature useless. The app struggles to stay connected and fails to reconnect frequently when it loses its connection. The ads are intentionally significantly louder than the programming - obviously on purpose - making it something that wakes you up if you doze off or like falling asleep listening. The constant adjusting of the volume alone makes me tend to turn the app off. Overall: commercial overload with intentional annoyances to make you pay. It’s not a functional enough app to pay for as is, coupled with the intentionality of the annoyances earns this app 1 star from me.
Good app
by Superquinho on 2019/04/03 13:58
I wrote a really bad review before (read it below), and to be fair, I’m back to update. They seem to improve this App. - The random Ads are gone, so no more paid ads during radio programs. - 30 seconds reward/forward function is back The loosing of the track once you receive a phone call, or a video/audio starts playing on another app, still an issue. So if you’d like to reward 30 seconds of missed radio stream, you’re with no luck! Well, hopefully they’ll hire back whoever developer was able to add that feature back in the days! DO NO PAY FOR THIS!!!! Use the free version and save some frustration at least. I’ve been using TuneIn for at least 4 years.... and every “upgrade” this app is getting worse! I listen to a Brazilian radio station, and when they are talking the app thinks its a commercial so a Lowe’s, Home Depot and another ad from TuneIn kicks in and I miss the interview or whatever is happening! And it’s always 2 or 3 ads only.... I don’t remember because all I do it’s curse on the 5th generation of the developers :/ The latest version they got rid of the 30seconds rewind/forward! C’mon developers..... really?!?!?! And the feature I miss the most is that if another audio/video comes up, like a phone call/FaceTime you lose the streaming, having to go back to the app and press play. Back in the days, this wasn’t necessary. Over all, it works, but on the pace this is going, in a near future, you’ll only be able to listen to their paid Ads :/
This is an edit of my previous review—5 stars
by Oli and Jacq on 2021/01/10 00:57
Somehow tune in has cured the app of the bleed through ads and the redundant “you may have missed” problem. Thanks for making the changes and fixing this really useful app! —what I wrote previously for your information and comparing: I could’ve written the summer 2020 review! Exact issues regarding trying to enjoy msnbc commercial free by subscribing via premium. I had many back and forths with friendly help clerks. Never solved the problem. Commercials bled through, five minutes of inanity between segments of news, long, repetitive “something you may not have heard from earlier today”, left us frustrated and finally we are giving up on this app. Wish there was a logical explanation for why they couldn’t deliver what I bought—commercial free. Let me know if you worked it out for real.
My categories continue to be rearranged
by InternetBarb on 2021/07/19 07:16
This app has been pretty good, and I considered purchasing the pro version—but not with simple things getting messed up. Specifically, I created multiple categories to organize my favorites by the genres and ordered each station by frequency of use. Last year the order was getting changed by itself. Recently ALL of my stations are listed together in each of my categories. I worked to curate stations to make it convenient to find what I want, when I want it. Now it takes forever to find what I’m looking for. Also, the description of what is currently playing live fails to be accurate at all and/or update as programs change (specifically, shows on old time radio stations). This has regularly occurred which is another reason I have not yet paid for the pro version. This app is useful and fun/interesting, so it is disappointing that glitches continue to happen instead of getting better.
702 talk radio gets flooded with ads
by Serval1948 on 2019/05/08 08:25
How can I enjoy listening to 702 today, this is Election Day in South Africa and you are spoiling my listening with numerous advertising. (Cutting into talks, news etc). You assured me recently that ads from your side only come on at the beginning-“never during the talks otherwise people will be disillusioned just like me”, you lied! You told me ads during are done by the radio stations. These are all Americans ads 702 talk radio would use to interrupt their news? Come on, You could do better, don’t lie! What use do I have to tell you all this quite a few times. -nothing gets done on your side - you need to make changes in order for your listeners to stay with you. Can you put me in touch with your customer service before I leave your radio service with a bitter taste in my mouth. Thank you, Beate Hammonds Boerne, Texas, USA
Cumbersome
by TradeWorthy iTunes on 2018/03/05 12:18
I’ve been using Tunein for several years. I use it to listen to favorite radio stations from places I used to live. Tunein used to be much simpler and smoother to operate. I have an older iPhone 6, so maybe it’s the phone, but this is my first iPhone, so my comments are based on my experience with Tunein running on the same device. One problem is Tunein stops now when I access a web site. Once the site loads, if I go back to Tunein and hit play, it resumes, but it seems like that should be automatic. Tunein in used to resume on its own when it hit a glitch. If it can play, why do I have to ask it to? This problem may be the station (HFS), but the Tunein screen used to show the name of the song the station was playing, but it no longer does. Tunein just seems more sluggish and awkward than it used to, and over time, it ought to get smoother and more efficient.
Indispensable for this traveler
by C of H on 2019/01/28 18:34
Update: I’m finding it does weird stuff like suddenly repeat the last several seconds or jump forward, especially bad if I have to pause a live stream, but even when I’m current. This has cause me to miss key moments I couldn’t retrieve. I demoted this by a star, hoping the developers pay attention to this annoyance. I’ll keep it at 4 stars for now, but if it gets worse I’ll be back for a further demotion. If it gets better, I’ll be back to elevate it. Original: I use this app several times a week and always on long (5+ hour) trips. Except when I have cell access trouble, I've never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn't pull off the road. Podcasts to the rescue! The only (minor) issue I have is that it can take an annoyingly long time to buffer. This doesn't happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can't complain, though. I use this to access radio a send other broadcasts from all over the world. I especially like to get onto live NPR when I'm traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can't go wrong with a free app like this!
Frustrating no one to ever talk to. No human voice customer service.
by Point of view 5 on 2019/07/10 07:17
This is so annoying. You try to reach out at the time you need help but it has to be EMAIL of course you don’t get a response for hours. By that time you are off to work so you do nothing but email tag just to have a few questions answered. It takes days. FAQ area doesn’t help for anything. It just explains the things they want to talk about. So finally having a moment again to get on email that I’m waiting for and I see it was answered they ask for screenshots now (even though it is explain perfectly)stating they need to see what I am explaining which I believe it’s because the person that opened my email didn’t know how to fix it so it’s his way of passing it on for someone else to answer it. I send off screenshots attached to the reply and it’s been all day and now after midnight and nothing. Customer service is a failure if you can’t just speak to a person especially taking their money
CBS yanked all their stations away from Tunein
by 4th Doctor fan on 2018/08/21 20:20
*To those reviews about subscription or trial period.. you DON'T need to sign up for the Premium service, nor do you need to sign up for Trial period (which does roll into a Premium paid service if you don't cancel, so just DON'T sign up for Trial period, you can just skip past anything regarding signing up). You can listen for FREE, without having to signup for anything. Too bad that CBS pulled all their CBS Sports and CBS Local News stations off from Tunein (but that is not Tunein's fault). And other censorship concerns would only apply if this were a government run service, which it is not. Those commentators have the right to free speech (with their own broadcast antenna, their own newspaper, their own website, etc) for their views, but other companies such as this can not be compelled to distribute such speech if they choose not to carry it. ---orig--- **Everyone needs to complain directly to CBS Radio (and their Entercom owner)... So evidently CBS Radio (and Entercom, who merged with them) is who forced all of their stations off of Tunein as of July/August, requiring you to use their own radio app instead (which is highly inferior to Tunein). Also, that CBS/Entercom app is not supported by Roku and other services (the way Tunein app was used by Roku). First CBS forces you onto their own subscription service for streaming TV, now they do the same thing for radio. Sad !!
Audiobooks gone!! 😞
by DomE080808008080808 on 2018/01/17 16:32
Many users might not be big Audiobook listeners but I am, and considering the high monthly prices for every other audiobook app out there (like Audible or Audiobooks), TuneIn was the best option! I remember when I started using this app, there were a few users and it clearly needed some app work, but I was positively surprised to find the vast collection of audiobooks in the app (with the premium subscription). TuneIn didn’t require you to pay for every new audiobook you listen to but had free amount of audiobooks for the monthly subscription price, apart from all the other radio, news stations and podcasts available. Since I only listen to Audiobooks and Podcasts, there is really no reason for me to keep paying for this app. This is a hue disappointment! I think that if TuneIn would have advertised their audiobook potential they would’ve received a vast amount of new users and a lot would have preferred it over the established Audible/Audiobooks app. If you decide to bring the audiobook section back let me know! I’ll be happy to pay for the subscription!
Excellent Source for Real FACTS, Great for Medical Info
by Rabbi BenHaAdam on 2021/09/13 10:02
WUNC is wonderful at reporting general mews reports AND medical information. By choosing carefully, one can benefit from SOME of their podcasts, like People’s Pharmacy. UNFORTUNATELY, they feel called upon to slant SOME ISSUES to their liking. Ex: Politics: Be careful here! They push a liberal/socialist agenda and CHOOSE to report almost solely in support of this “worldview.” Ex: Climate Change: No matter what happens with weather, their fertile imaginations report it as due to climate change. Ex: Politics: They report ONLY about pre-born children as blobs of tissue to be murdered at the mother’s CONVENIENCE. They ate EXTREME in this ignorant view. After decades of listening, this is just one example of REPORTING their opinion as “news.” Ex: “GUESTS/fellow REPORTERS: Almost ALWAYS, they ONLY interview those who hold THEIR opinion. PROOF: The podcasts. PROOF: LOTS of apostate church (main line, Rev. B, pro-abortion Catholics, etc. leaders glorified, interviewed. But given the high % of Christians/Messianic Jews in the area, WHEN do they EVER include REAL (Bible believers, Southern Baptist LEADERS, those preachers on WRAL, Messianic Rabbi, etc. FOR THE VERY EDUCATED, they have really good reporting WHEN they stick to the facts. So, IF YOU KNOW HOW to DISREGARD the junk, they are an excellent source of information.
A very fine internet tuner - though buffering is question
by Illuminer on 2017/11/18 18:05
So far, this is my favorite radio internet tuner. It covers so many fine stations, and allows you to buffer or store a station's past minutes if you put it on hold. It has tendency to go into a buffer mode erratically and repeats several previous seconds every so often. Actually, a bit too often for comfort. Otherwise, it works flawlessly. As it does store buffered sections, I wish there was a way to know when I'm listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its "live" radio mode , as well being able to optionally go back and rehear previous sections of the broadcast. An update button to shift to live or shift to the buffered sections would be nice. One other needed fix is that quite often, the banner naming the program doesn't match. "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" is listed as "Car Talk"
Great app; but been glitching a lot last 1.5 months
by Write2diaz on 2021/10/21 00:55
Been listening to cnn, npr, msnbc, and college football and more for over 2 yrs or so. Ended my SiriusXM subscription I had since 2006 because of TuneIn. It’s been my go to app for streaming all. Was very happy with it... LATELY, HOWEVER it’s been very glitchy. Since I listen up to 8 hours a day... I no longer find the most updated podcast- MarketPlace for example stopped updating since late Sept. or I can’t always find past shows-it only shows other radio companies that are currently playing the show. What happened? This happens to other podcast too. The UI is still a little confusing- I still can’t place my favorite channels in the order I want -top to bottom. I rearrange them in edit mode, save it and it just reverts to what was all along. For now- 3/5 stars. Make this easy to use.
Easier than station sites & apps
by Outdoor Janitor on 2019/03/25 14:03
Often works better than a station’s own app or web site player —began to use this app when it was difficult to get my desktop to start the listen live feature of a local news talk station. It's got a bit of a delay, but that's cool if you are vein, and you want to hear what you said on a call-in show – but aside from that, having a profile with my favorite Christian, & news stations – & being able to pick a syndicated show, and listen even if it's from across the nation, is cool. Occasionally some glitch causes 5 to 30 seconds of a show to repeat, but I don't believe anything is ever dropped…
Poor buffering of stream
by richardinMaine on 2019/11/21 20:06
I’ve used TuneIn for listening to news. The app have very poor buffering performance. This means the stream is constantly pausing while it buffers. I understand this can happen occasionally when cell reception is marginal, but even with a strong cellular signal buffering happens every 10 minutes or so. The buffering period can last several minutes and often when it does start playing it will play 10 seconds then repeat those same 10 seconds two or three times in a row then continue with the stream. It doesn’t matter what station I stream the buffering issue always occurs. I haven’t found a setting for setting buffer size. I would like to get premium service but the app’s performance to too poor. All other streaming services I use, such as direct streaming from radio stations or podcasts NEVER buffer.
Dishonest company. Buyer beware!
by My MT Brain on 2018/12/15 20:50
Last year TuneIn reduced their price and touted their huge audiobook selection which got me to join. Then they dropped the feature within weeks. A reputable company would have either stated that audiobooks would be going away, or offered a refund for cost of the service given such a key feature was removed. I thought, lesson learned and set up my calendar to remind me to cancel a month before my subscription ended. When I logged in last month to cancel, there was no way to cancel online. I had to contact TuneIn via their email. I contacted them and they told me to cancel online. I replied I was not able to do so, that their site informed me to contact tech support. Then they said they cancelled my service and “Rest assured your subscription will not auto renew on your next billing date”. I’m sure you see this coming, yep they charged me! So now I have to waste more time trying to get my money back from these thieves. Stay away. You have been warned.
My problem persists
by Endmysuff34ing on 2020/05/10 23:07
FIX THIS AND STOP WITH THE AUTOMATED RESPONSES. I used to think the problem where it would restart my podcast was only due to my earbuds at the time, but I have since switched phones and earbuds many times and still have had the same issue. Every time I pause a podcast for more than a minute or so; it fully restarts the podcast. This is extremely frustrating. I constantly have to re scrub through the podcast to find where I left off just because it constantly restarts it. I love this app for podcasts and I use it all the time to download podcasts, I will not however continue using this app if this problem persists. I would save more time just using another app that saves my spot in the podcast. If you could please look into this and fix it that would be great. I’ve had this issue for almost a year now. —UPDATE— It now restarts my podcast EVERY TIME I pause it. This is ridiculous. SUCH AN EASY FIX.
Unlistenable
by Meauxseph on 2020/07/20 18:09
I’ve been listening to Fox News via Tune In since mid-March. While the content is as expected, the ads for both sponsors and Tune In programming makes the experience awful. The most recent example is a Cox Communications (which is misogynistic, though that’s not Tune In’s fault) ad which plays at least three times per break, sometimes even consecutively. This has been the norm since I began using the app. Ads will repeat and replay frequently, which is especially frustrating given the content of ads like the aforementioned Cox ad. I guarantee that I will not listen to Tune In content because of this and am no longer interested in subscribing for the ad-free version. I suspect Tune In either does this intentionally to push people to sub or that they have a programming issue. I spent years working in terrestrial radio and guarantee a programming flaw like this would kill a station if left unresolved very quickly.
Love the concept, but...
by Papa Smurf 05-07 on 2018/04/08 18:23
In theory, I should love TuneIn. Pay for the premium package...get all of my favorite sports teams on audio (minus Liverpool who I at least get to see on TV a fair bit). Reality doesn’t always match with theory, however, thusly the two-star rating. Why? Often, the streams are spotty, which is to say that sometimes they don’t come in at all, break-up into a spotty mess, or like I’ve been experiencing lately with the Red Sox games, completely not connecting at all. In order to listen, I’ve had to delete the app, reload it, log back in and then re-try the audio for the game. Sometimes it works...other times it stops the feed and I have to repeat the whole process to get it to work again, and hope the same failing doesn’t re-emerge. I’m giving it another week of baseball season. If a new update doesn’t fix it, I’ll head back to paying for sports audio on parents apps. At least there I’ll get a largely uninterrupted stream.
Great app with one mentally disturbing problem
by GentileSlayr on 2019/12/17 01:54
I listen to tune in for MSNBC live. That is all I listen to. I know the ads are skippable. But you have to stop playing the same ads over and over and over and over and over again. Especially three the AARP ad. Comcast business ad and some ad about cancer that I’m sure makes sense on TV but is just sad and kind of pointless since there is like 10 seconds of silence before the end slogan. But seriously they have been playing the same Comcast ad for 3 years! I will never use Comcast under any circumstances because of this. And also can they at least rotate hearing the same ad then go back to MSNBC they say we will be right back then u play the same ad again. It’s so frustrating I just mute it and end up missing parts of the show. Also they updated the app so when u pause and un pause they play the same Comcast commercial agggggghhhhhh!
Love it, but one problem...
by GO BREWERS!!! on 2018/09/18 22:47
I love that I can listen to Brewer games wherever I’m at big fan. The only problem I have with this app is even if I have two out of my four bars of signal it buffers for ever I have to shut down the app and restart it, which wouldn’t be a problem if I could go right back in to an old game that I’m listening to and he would pick up where it left off instead of starting all over. This is also a problem because it takes so long for the games load since they are hours long so if it shuts down when I’m two hours into a game and I can only scan 30 seconds ahead this obviously takes way too long and then I end up getting so fed up because I’m trying to work while I’m listening to this day I cannot listen to the game anymore so I have to switch my app.
Good but MLB games are little behind
by MissTheMarinersButNotSeattle on 2019/09/25 00:02
I’ve used TuneIN for a while now for listening to DV Radio, 710 ESPN, and KIRO 97.3 for the Seattle Mariners games. However, I recently moved away and didn’t realize the radio stations were blacked-out during games if you were out of state. So, I just signed up for premium last week so I could listen to the Mariners games. Unfortunately the live broadcast is about 2 to 3 plays behind the other sports apps. I would get notifications on my phone about scoring plays or home runs at least 2 plays early. Easy fix though, I just turned off the notifications on the other apps. I’m not going to complain too much because the premium subscription served its purpose... I got to listen to the games. I will most likely subscribe again next season.
Rip off!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by joker12483 on 2019/06/21 18:36
Be extremely careful with this app, I unfortunately downloaded this junk by mistake in April of 2018 as soon as it was downloaded I deleted it from my phone. Literally wasn’t on my phone for more than five minutes! It was apparently free for a week after that you are charged $9.99 a month without agreeing to it until you cancel the subscription that you never agreed too!!!! Deleting a app will not cancel a subscription, which absolutely makes no sense at all. Seriously how ridiculous......yeah let’s delete this but start paying for it , sounds good!!!! So I’ve been charged $150 to date and luckily noticed it on my bank statement. Immediately cancelled the subscription that I never asked for or agreed too and never got notification of !!! I have no clue if this app is good or not even though I have had a subscription for almost two years without knowing but I certainly wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone.
Does not keep track of playhead
by Kid Rock C on 2019/04/20 05:46
So, you are listening to a podcast, but are taking a break for a few minutes to do something else. Now, you switch back to the app and discover that TuneIn kicked you out of the stream, but puts a speaker symbol next to the most-recently played episode. You may rightfully think that you can simply continue where you left off by selecting that podcast again, but you would be very mistaken. TuneIn does not remember how far into the podcast you were, it simply starts from scratch. Nice ... not. Why does it kick you back to the overview screen after you had placed the app into the background for a few minutes, and why can’t it remember the playhead position? An enigma wrapped in a mystery that only the talented programmers at TuneIn will know the answers to. I personally am still using this program to listen to NPR, but wouldn’t mind finding a smarter app.
App shuts down every time I look at another app on my iPhone 7.
by Erza10 on 2019/10/09 19:52
Ever since the update to IOS 13, this app is not working the way it used to. If I pause the stream & then start it again & then look at another app while listening to the the tune-in app, the tune in app shuts down & I have to open it up & restart it again. Also even just looking at another app while listening to something in Tune in app, it will shut down, sometimes numerous times within an hour. I don’t understand why this is happening since these problems were not there in the past. I hope this can be fixed. Don’t know if it’s a compatibility problem. I have rebooted my phone & even deleted app & uploaded again & I still have the same problem noted above.
Used to be great; now streaming is erratic
by Diddyboyy on 2020/06/27 17:50
I used to love this app, six months ago I would’ve given it five stars. I am a premium subscriber, I like to listen to my local pro sport teams on this app . However, over the last six months, the quality of streaming has suffered greatly. It drops the stream all the time, both on Wi-Fi and on cellular data. It just inexplicably drops and takes a while to reconnect. It buffers over and over again. Occasionally it will not reconnect at all and I have to close the app and reopen it. I’m not sure what is happening, everything is up-to-date on my cell phone, it’s an iPhone X, running the latest iOS. I searched the app for a way to communicate directly with the company or developer. Unfortunately, they do not offer a “contact us“ option on their app. There is no way to inform them of this problem, other than leaving a bad review. Please fix, this app used to be great!
Something’s wrong! Please fix it!
by Ljenz61 on 2020/04/21 04:19
For several weeks now, the app interrupts my listening pleasure to announce that the particular channel I’ve chosen—MSNBC—is “experiencing difficulty”. It’s only with MSNBC, and it occurs several times per day, every single day. Then the announcement interrupts whatever MSNBC show I’m enjoying for recordings of earlier shows while the glitch is supposedly being fixed. Then last week, the app started playing weird, loud music—no announcement, just the music. After several minutes—if I continue listening—the transmission switches back to MSNBC. Usually, I do not continue listening; I switch to CNN or CSPAN or almost anything else besides the loud, weird music. IDK what’s going on, but the app would get five stars for content from me, if these annoying interruptions didn’t occur several times a day!
I use it constantly
by Kdhunter on 2020/08/27 23:49
Some platform of this type is going to be the future of radio. I use this all the time to listen to radio stations across the country, which is a big deal for avid jazz and classical music fan. Then there is the ability to timeshift virtually newscast from across the country since i live in EST. Glitches I've noted are mostly a function of Internet connection. At work, it's virtually flawless because we have a super fast connection. At home, there are interruptions. but I have to say even those are rare. I would like it if they created a way to remove folders once you’ve created them bc they stand in the way of getting to “favorites” which creates too many clicks before you get to the station you want.
Gone downhill in the past year!
by Squish Popper on 2021/09/30 14:21
I loved this app when I first downloaded it. I’d listen to MSNBC and a couple of radio stations outside my area, while driving or at the office. It’s been my go to app until recently-the constant pausing, skipping and repeating segments is truly frustrating. It NEVER pauses during commercials, always during a broadcast. The Blues/R&B station I listen to is commercial free, but TuneIn throws them in and more times than not it’s in the middle of a song. Once these glitches start, any broadcast rarely plays for more than a minute before it automatically pauses, repeats or skips. It’s insanely frustrating! The only thing that is consistent are the replies from the developers stating they’re sorry and promise to fix the problem with the next update. The past 5 updates have yet to rectify any of these problems! I cannot give it a better rating until they get their act together and fix their mess.
Generally I like it but one huge headache
by COC Champ on 2020/03/27 14:07
I really like the app. It allows me to listen to stations and music I otherwise wouldn’t hear living where I am. It also is a great way to listen to several podcasts. But my headache comes from the fact that because I mainly listen to the podcasts to and from work, I don’t listen to them all in one sitting. So I try to continue with the same podcast I was listening to the truck ride before so to speak. It would be nice if the podcast would remember where I was in the podcast from the last time rather than starting over at the first. Then I have to let it download to the spot I was and most of the time I don’t look at the timer to see where I am leaving off when I get out of the truck. Please get that fixed. It is very frustrating.
I agree...
by ejborg on 2021/10/22 23:21
...with the previous reviewer. If the developers think they fixed these problems they’re wrong. Furthermore, I find myself sitting here on MSNBC listening to the very advertising that I PAID to avoid. Cars, shoes, products of all kinds. All this interspersed with “news [I] may have missed from earlier today,” which I haven’t missed, of course, because TuneIn plays the same clips over and over. PLUS, I still haven’t figured out how to communicate my concerns (OK, let’s just call them what they really are...”complaints”) directly to customer “service”. Finding CS at TuneIn is harder than navigating a Halloween corn maze. I shouldn’t have to leave an angry review in order to get your attention. What I HAVE finally figured out is how to cancel my subscription. Do you really want to make cancellation easier than complaint resolution? I’ve never been closer to canceling a subscription to anything as I am right now with TuneIn.
Buffering endlessly
by Erfox on 2019/12/30 15:53
I used to love this app. I recommended it to everyone. About a year ago, it started having a glitch where it would repeat the same 10-30 seconds of sound over and over and over. I tried to find solutions and the only comment was “it’s buffering” I tried to turn phone off. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app (as if that were actually ever possible on an iPhone). The only change I noticed was that the monthly premium went up on the reinstall. Eventually I gave up. I deleted the app and my premium service. Occasionally I’ll come back and listen to non-premium channels, but you can’t get that everywhere.
Ah TuneIn, why didn’t you raise the price?
by Kiriel62 on 2018/01/23 23:03
When it was decided that audiobooks weren’t working as intended, the first option was to dump them. Now I know soooo many people think $8 a month is reasonable for unlimited listening, I know that is crazy. There were no limitations like the library where you have to wait for the book to come back in. One book costs more to purchase than Tunein’s premium price. Now why didn’t you first TRY to raise your price. I would have paid 3x or more for access to this many books. I was one of the ones listening all-the-time. Now my choice is Playster which is so horrible so far, can’t find books, weirdness in charges, loses place etc. I can’t do it. I am going back to library. At least I still have Rachel & Bill at TuneIn.
Ads are interrupting programming and are too intrusive
by Phuoc-SD on 2019/08/12 19:48
No longer as great as it used to be. I’m totally cool with ads to help developers and content owners produce great apps or great content. I would pay if the value proposition makes sense. Tune In used to work really well with ads. I noticed that the ads on Tune In are completely different from what is on the radio, which makes sense. They used to come during the natural commercial breaks in the programming and all worked well. Lately I’m finding that’s not the case. Ads are coming on the middle of someone speaking and are way too intrusive. I find I’m using Tune In less and less and opting for my favorite station’s native apps, web streaming in the browser or hustling literally tuning back into the radio. Just like people are going vintage with many other things from vinyl to clothing, I predict people will come back to the radio if this keeps up.
Commercial volume & PSA’s
by SuzieQZgladiolies on 2019/12/19 15:20
TuneIn is great in many ways, but we’re looking for alternative streaming venues. The main reason is that commercials and Public Service announcements blare through the speakers at extreme levels. We are constantly jolted by the volume changes and the need to decrease commercial sound levels is more and more irritating. Also the actual program volume levels are so low we often can’t hear the programs, but commercial breaks are 10 times louder. Keeping everything at the same volume level is what we’re looking for. Finally the exact same PSA’s are broadcast during breaks and have not changed in over ten years.
Keeps cutting off all the time
by keeps cutting off on 2018/12/08 13:32
I have several Radio apps on my iPodAnd don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometime to start and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other app and don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometimes it starts and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other apps
Not working on Apple Watch, sneaky about subscription
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/08/07 15:41
UPDATE: After deleting and reinstalling the apps several times, TuneIn suddenly began working properly on Apple Watch and iPhone. I have revised my star rating upward accordingly. But I can’t give more than three stars because of the sneaky first screen after installation that tries to trick the new person into a pricey subscription. *** The app plays nicely on my iPhone, but on the watch it does not install. I reinstalled the app. The previous version at least installed, though it was unresponsive on the watch after that. Other watch apps are working normally. Watch v. 4. , watchOS 5.2.1., iOS 12.3.1. For honesty, you should quit advertising that the app supports Apple Watch. I have emailed Support, but none of the suggestions worked.
Used to work.....
by ugg, whats in a nickname on 2020/08/18 10:49
I read several of the reviews and agree, it used to be a reliable and trusted service. I usually listened over the google speakers, not the iPad, but it became totally unreliable many months ago and jusr stops working regularly, requiring a restart, then it works again for a while and stops. Tunein “support” is useless, with no phone and only email responses that just repeat the same incorrect non answers. Clearly they have a problem that they have no idea how to fix. Even writing their CEO does not get an honest or competent response. Lately it elicits no response at all. It’s sad when something that worked well goes awry and there is no ability to repair it. I listen to CNN and MSNBC on tunein. All other services, such as pandora work the same as they did before, so the excuse that google changed something rings hollow as the others seem to have adapted.
Charged during free trial
by HollyDay on 2020/03/05 06:51
I wanted to listen to world news on the road and decided to give this app a try. It offered a 7-day free trial for commercial-free and once I said yes, I got charged on my credit card. 🤔 I contacted the developer within an hour of being the receipt, but I'm not even sure why this would happen on this app, through the App Store, on my Apple account when it was literally an hour into my 7-day trial? At least the developer is responsive and I've contacted Apple as well, but this annoying. I'll think again before agreeing to trial any future app. The app itself though worked fine on my mobile data while driving. The options are limited, but that's probably due to what's available on the radio waves, rather than an app issue. I'll increase rating (4 stars) if my money is returned.
