why is tunein censoring NBC MSNBC and CNN?
by OT182 on 2022/05/17 10:24
Every time a white supremacist terrorism act happens in the US tunein censors NBC MSNBC and CNN “ this station is experiencing technical difficulties” but Fox News is clear as a bell! This also happens a lot close to elections.

Totally Useless on Apple Watch LTE
by shark9999! on 2022/05/12 12:40
It’s 2022 and all you can do on this app with the Apple Watch LTE is change channels on your phone. There is no live streaming to a cellular watch. You still need your phone to listen. Embarrassing.
Don’t bother on Apple Watch
by S-M-A.... on 2022/05/11 17:46
Maybe this app works well, or at least works on iPhones, but it’s completely useless on my Apple Watch (series 7). Buggy, can’t get stations to load, keeps looping back to station list, shows incorrect station playing….and nothing is even playing, I could go on and on.
General good
by SRR64 on 2022/05/11 17:19
I drive between homes 120 miles apart and really like being able to listen to the same local station from one location. Really wished when you went into the application in CarPlay that the default screen was your favorites. They are your favorites and that is why I setup them up. But instead your dumped into the local radio screen to look for a station, which I haven’t used since I created favorites , and then have to switch to favorites, which makes no sense.
Great Radio app

Tunein Premium is a Bad Product
by Garp83 on 2022/05/09 18:07
Despite the fact that I pay for TuneIn premium I continue to get ads and the support staff doesn’t seem to understand the issue never mind resolve it… Don’t waste your money… Just listen to the free version
Avoid this app!
by alelkid on 2022/05/08 13:58
Crappy app, crashes doesn’t work well even on the latest iPhone, support doesn’t resolve issues they remove stations on their own! Not usable at all!
Quality decline!
by Jakester51892 on 2022/05/07 16:22
I used to listen to a single ad or 2 during station, now the songs get interrupted every 10 minutes or so, and the ads cut into the middle of song. Very disappointed by this declining performance 😔 If anything, I suggest the ads “cut-in” during intermissions or song pauses, then no problem! Willing to update this review and increase stars rating if my rant doesn’t fall on deaf ears
Unbiased ??
by Carlos Horacio Guillen on 2022/05/07 02:09

Issues with the Apple Watch
by ibarias on 2022/05/05 12:06
I’ve been really enjoying using this app while at work for the past two months. The app has always been finicky on the Apple Watch but this past week the app on the watch has not been working: cannot use the functions to pause, play or change a station. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app on both my phone and the Watch but no use. I hope the app can be fixed!
Great app turned useless
by Adrys87 on 2022/05/05 04:22
I used to love this app. Made it easy to listen to podcasts and radio stations across the globe. It had visual ads and some sound advertisements. In the last 6-9 months they started pushing ads hard. Sometimes the ads interrupt the live broadcast. All stations now start with an ad and god forbid you hit pause and try to come back because you will need to listen to an ad again. It has just become spam at this point. The worst part is it no longer keeps track of where I left off on my podcasts. If I start up the episode it’s spins and plays an ad and in the process loses my progress for the episode. I have to take a screenshot or write down where I left off. As painful as this was, it was some how tolerable but recently the app has started crashing while listening. When I start the episode again I have to listen to an ad and hope I remember where I left off. During the last episode this happened 8 times. This app has become useless. I am looking for alternatives now. It is sad to see how this functional app has been destroyed.

by udabby on 2022/05/04 04:45
I am ok with putting ads during the broadcast when using the freemium version. But, recently the frequency of ads ruins my experience. Would have given the app 5 stars otherwise.

The application changes the station alone. They also put ads and after an inappropriate ad it simply stops working or sometimes it just stops working for no apparent reason.

Misleading…Buffering Issues please Cancel and Refund
by river ranch hand on 2022/04/30 02:38
Please cancel my subscription and return my money immediately. I just wanted to listen to a rangers baseball game. Your app was misleading and made me believe $14.99 a month would allow me to listen to games; however, it did not. Please cancel my subscription and return my money immediately. Thanks
Could use improvement
by Rockgodtobe on 2022/04/29 20:34
Tends to skip and hang up a lot. Especially during commercial breaks. You will hear the same half of a commercial 3 or 4 times because the app skips back to the beginning. That combined with the constant “hey are you enjoying our app” pop up messages leaves me wishing there were another option for me to use.

It was a good product once
by Dharmabum89 on 2022/04/29 11:59
I do not mind ads and realize TuneIn, just like every company, needs to make revenue from free services. But either their product is garbage or they’re using deceptive tactics to push people to their paid subscription. I’ve used their app for over 6yrs, just the free service, and the live streams were once solid. I’d say the past several years though the live streams cut frequently, rewind, have random noises cut the feed and this happens no matter if I’m my phone, tablet, PC, web browser, app, Wi-Fi, cellular, in a major city, and/or middle of no where. Now, they’re either doing this on purpose to frustrate people to pay for a subscription or their product needs to be fixed.

No longer works in CarPlay while using navigation
by Flyfish3x on 2022/04/28 12:06
After this last update, it stops playing as soon as I switch over to my navigation apps in CarPlay. Also, it constantly stops playing way too often to even be useful. It may buffer and start again eventually or it may never start again.

Why is there so much glitches. I can’t use it because it glitches so bad. Been like this for over a week. The app doesn’t pause correctly. It is very rare when it works correctly. You use to be able to pause and then fast forward or rewind but the buttons are almost always unselectable. So, I can pause and play but it that is it. To change the feed I have to close the app.
Buffering
by shizz618 on 2022/04/25 13:58
I enjoy the music on the different stations but the buffering can be annoying at times
Ok for slower streams
by ws an de rs do tn et on 2022/04/25 00:54
I like this app because it has the free stations I like with minimal ads. However one of the stations I like has a 128k mp3 stream and the app just can’t handle it. It starts buffering and locks up after only a few minutes, and the phone gets almost too hot to touch. This is on an iPhone 11 running the latest iOS version. Slower streams seem to be OK, although there still is a tendency for some of them to start buffering and eventually lock up the app after about 30 minutes. If you’re having trouble with a station, check the streams option and see if they have a slower stream, app seems to work much better below 128K.
Great content, support incompetent and useless.
by M. in Philly on 2022/04/23 19:36
Time and time again I’ve contacted TuneIn to resolve issues, and time and time again* going through support is a waste of time. Don’t tell me to try solutions (reinstall, restart device) that don’t work and that I’ve already tried, PARTICULARLY if you’d KNOW I’d already tried them if you’d bothered to read the email chain. Seriously. This is crap. When your “support” people don’t know the product as well as the users who are contacting them, and are apparently too lazy to read the whole chain before wasting *our* time with questions we’ve already answered…. *I’ll make an exception and shoutout for “Rachel,” in my latest interaction with them; unfortunately it ended up with someone else.

Not certain what is going on. This used to be a great app. I began to experience ads while paying for premium, so I stopped paying for the ads. Now the app stutters, stops, and generally refuses to play at all. I am using the latest version.
Trash App
by Drewski12321 on 2022/04/22 16:41
I have no choice to use this trash app. My favorite program exclusively streams off of here. TuneIn is making me hate the program I lived for years. No matter where I’m at or which wifi I’m connected to it was always get stuck on a 100% buffering (every 10 min). My theory, every time you pick a station an ad plays. I’m pretty sure TuneIn purposely crashes to you have no choice but to reboot so you can stream more ads. Terrible product. I will rate one star everyday until they pull their heads out of their booty. Did I mention this app was trash?
Really Flakey Performance
by BobKalk on 2022/04/22 10:11
I wish there was more real competition. Other streaming apps work as expected when driving through mountainous terrain. Once the cellular signal is re-acquired by my phone, the other apps just resume playing. Not TuneIn. It just hangs and often must be relaunched several times. It frequently hangs up even when the cellular signal is good.

by Rckskppr on 2022/04/19 00:45
I’ve relied on TuneIn for listening to CNN, MSNBC and PBS stations and podcasts on my iPhone. I’ve tried the commercial free service and gave up on that when it would stutter, stop, buffer and then rewind a number of seconds. Not acceptable for a paid service! Now, with the ad-supported version I have the same issues, but at least I’m not paying for it. The commercials are annoying, but I just turn the volume down. I use the app less and less these days because it’s just too buggy.

by NewYorkgal1 on 2022/04/17 23:48
App is basically useless with constant buffering, in addition to stations such as CNN and MSNBC not playing at all. This problem is not limited to use on iPhones but persists on Roku app as well. Can’t imagine that anyone would pay for the use of such an unreliable app. Update: I am glad to say I was contacted by the developer, who went out of his way to assist me with the issue I was having. While it is currently being worked on, I appreciated the excellent service, and despite the few glitches, the app offers a wide variety of stations for every type of listener. I would definitely recommend it!

I use Tune in Radio at home and it works well. On my iPhone it constantly repeats every 20 seconds or so. It doesn’t matter whether I’m on Wi-Fi or not it constantly does this. It seems like they need to implement some type of buffer so it plays back smoothly without constantly repeating every 10 seconds.

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?
Used to be the best, now only the ads work
by Tamegravity on 2022/02/15 01:23
This was by far the best streaming app. Then they added ads…. I quit using iHeart after the streaming service made it impossible to listen to. I understand that they needed more revenue so they added ads. Once they added ads, the app froze every 10 minutes. That has been fixed, kudos. Now, I want to listen to a podcast that has 8 minute segments…. There is an ad between every segment. Ok, it is a lot but I can live with it. However, the player stops after every ad and doesn’t advance to the next podcast without…. opening the player and yes, having to listen to yet another ad…. In addition, if you leave and come back, it plays an ad (after you have already listened to the ad) and then proceeds to forget your progress so you need to remember where you were in the podcast. Plus, the app crashes more frequently now and that, of course, leads you to have to listen to another ad, and lose your place in the podcast again. Rince, repeat. There are infrequent updates that fix some of the usability but unless they fix these things soon, I will be finding another app.
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.
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.
Inconsistent At Best
by MTin2 on 2021/02/14 20:01
I&#39;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&#39;t start. It simply spins in place. Yes, I have strong WiFi. Yes I&#39;ve tried on LTE. Yes I&#39;ve tried on 5G. It&#39;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&#39;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 &#34;upcoming impeachment vote&#34; which has already happened...but I digress) and the station still didn&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
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 :/
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.
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.
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.
Great app turned useless
by Adrys87 on 2022/05/05 04:22
I used to love this app. Made it easy to listen to podcasts and radio stations across the globe. It had visual ads and some sound advertisements. In the last 6-9 months they started pushing ads hard. Sometimes the ads interrupt the live broadcast. All stations now start with an ad and god forbid you hit pause and try to come back because you will need to listen to an ad again. It has just become spam at this point. The worst part is it no longer keeps track of where I left off on my podcasts. If I start up the episode it’s spins and plays an ad and in the process loses my progress for the episode. I have to take a screenshot or write down where I left off. As painful as this was, it was some how tolerable but recently the app has started crashing while listening. When I start the episode again I have to listen to an ad and hope I remember where I left off. During the last episode this happened 8 times. This app has become useless. I am looking for alternatives now. It is sad to see how this functional app has been destroyed.
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
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&#39;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&#39;t cancel, so just DON&#39;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&#39;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 !!
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;m listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its &#34;live&#34; 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&#39;t match. &#34;Wait, Wait, Don&#39;t Tell Me&#34; is listed as &#34;Car Talk&#34;
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.
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&#39;ve never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn&#39;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&#39;t happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can&#39;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&#39;m traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can&#39;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
Have enjoyed many years
by My 5th Decade on 2022/02/28 19:13
I started using Tunein Radio in 2011 if memory serves me right, and I have dodged the review our app pop up all this time, so today my conscience got to me 😂, and I will tell what I think. It’s been wonderful free entertainment to me when I couldn’t afford more. I was particularly interested in finding The Dennis Miller Show, and Old Time Radio programs from 40,s through 60,s as well as music from the 70,s. I live in Alaska, and it has great reception here, and when I have travelled to the lower 48, it has worked well there. This year is the first time I upgraded to commercial free, so as not to have interruptions during Baseball games I say give it a try! Laura in Alaska
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.
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.
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.
Terrible!

TuneIn is for those desperate to get their programming as a last resort. The programme is full of bugs. Constantly stopping the stream. When you push “play” the little loop just keeps going around but no sound. Most of the time a error message pops up. Sometimes nothing happens. Constant buffering prevents stream to work. 2. Constant commercial loops prevent programming to play. Stopping and restarting only brings more looping. We have to eject the app and re start it hoping it will work. It often doesn’t and we just give up. When contacted about the many play and loading issues, their answer was essentially “too bad”. This is the way it works and nuts to you! Don’t waste your time. It isn’t worth it and the aggravation of ineptitude of the app design. Worst ever in a list of streaming apps. And certainly, don’t bother contacting customer “no” service. They will talk down to you and are insulting, not to mention totally uncaring. Who needs that?
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.
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&#39;ve noted are mostly a function of Internet connection. At work, it&#39;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.
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!
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!
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&amp;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.
You must WATCH ads in order to LISTEN a radio station
by Eddie_AR on 2021/12/27 15:17
I noticed this for the last 2 or 3 weeks. After you select the radio station, you MUST watch a 30 sec or 1 minute-long ad. If you go back to the Home Screen, the ad stops playing. This means the user must watch the entire ad before the station plays. Isn’t ironic that you must watch an add in order to listen to the radio? In the past, the TuneIn ads played every hour, and that’s ok. I understand I am a free user. However, with the latest releases, you get interrupted with TuneIn ads every 15 or 20 minutes. As you can imagine, it’s is very annoying to be listening your favorite station, immersed in an interview or a song, and suddenly getting interrupted by this ad. This has happened in more than 5 stations, so I do not think an issue with the station but with the TuneIn app itself.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 &amp; Bill at TuneIn.
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 &amp; then start it again &amp; then look at another app while listening to the the tune-in app, the tune in app shuts down &amp; I have to open it up &amp; 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 &amp; even deleted app &amp; uploaded again &amp; I still have the same problem noted above.
Mostly great
by deebhoo on 2021/12/09 17:14
Updated review: latest update totally fixed frozen screen problem and stopping when opening other apps. Only longtime problem that still remains with tunein premium is that I’m still hearing ads sometimes on MSNBC. CNN doesn’t have that problem. ————————- Content stops playing when I open other apps. Also, when I go back to Tunein to restart playing, I have to wait for the frozen screen to unfreeze until I can restart or change to a different station. Used to be a lot faster. I know, I know - you’re working on it or the problem’s been fixed. No it hasn’t - you answer all complaints like that. I promise to update my review after these issues are fixed.
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!
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.
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.
Do not get suckered into tune in premium
by NFL mobile app review on 2020/09/19 22:04
If you pay for premium tune in will continue to insert their own commercial that is not a part of the actual broadcast to the front end of EVERY feed you click on. Sometimes they insert their own commercial, which again is not part of the actual broadcast, to the middle of a segment of a radio show just because. They do not operate in good faith &amp; rip off their so-called “premium” users who are are supposed to be “commercial free” with their own extra commercials, taking your subscription fee &amp; still treating you like a non-paying user. I have contacted tune in about this repeatedly &amp; they either deny that they actually do this or make other excuses &amp; never correct the problem. Do not pay for their subscription. They have competition who does not operate in bad faith.

why is tunein censoring NBC MSNBC and CNN?
by OT182 on 2022/05/17 10:24
Every time a white supremacist terrorism act happens in the US tunein censors NBC MSNBC and CNN “ this station is experiencing technical difficulties” but Fox News is clear as a bell! This also happens a lot close to elections.

Totally Useless on Apple Watch LTE
by shark9999! on 2022/05/12 12:40
It’s 2022 and all you can do on this app with the Apple Watch LTE is change channels on your phone. There is no live streaming to a cellular watch. You still need your phone to listen. Embarrassing.
Don’t bother on Apple Watch
by S-M-A.... on 2022/05/11 17:46
Maybe this app works well, or at least works on iPhones, but it’s completely useless on my Apple Watch (series 7). Buggy, can’t get stations to load, keeps looping back to station list, shows incorrect station playing….and nothing is even playing, I could go on and on.
General good
by SRR64 on 2022/05/11 17:19
I drive between homes 120 miles apart and really like being able to listen to the same local station from one location. Really wished when you went into the application in CarPlay that the default screen was your favorites. They are your favorites and that is why I setup them up. But instead your dumped into the local radio screen to look for a station, which I haven’t used since I created favorites , and then have to switch to favorites, which makes no sense.

Quality decline!
by Jakester51892 on 2022/05/07 16:22
I used to listen to a single ad or 2 during station, now the songs get interrupted every 10 minutes or so, and the ads cut into the middle of song. Very disappointed by this declining performance 😔 If anything, I suggest the ads “cut-in” during intermissions or song pauses, then no problem! Willing to update this review and increase stars rating if my rant doesn’t fall on deaf ears
Unbiased ??

Issues with the Apple Watch
by ibarias on 2022/05/05 12:06
I’ve been really enjoying using this app while at work for the past two months. The app has always been finicky on the Apple Watch but this past week the app on the watch has not been working: cannot use the functions to pause, play or change a station. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app on both my phone and the Watch but no use. I hope the app can be fixed!
Great app turned useless
by Adrys87 on 2022/05/05 04:22
I used to love this app. Made it easy to listen to podcasts and radio stations across the globe. It had visual ads and some sound advertisements. In the last 6-9 months they started pushing ads hard. Sometimes the ads interrupt the live broadcast. All stations now start with an ad and god forbid you hit pause and try to come back because you will need to listen to an ad again. It has just become spam at this point. The worst part is it no longer keeps track of where I left off on my podcasts. If I start up the episode it’s spins and plays an ad and in the process loses my progress for the episode. I have to take a screenshot or write down where I left off. As painful as this was, it was some how tolerable but recently the app has started crashing while listening. When I start the episode again I have to listen to an ad and hope I remember where I left off. During the last episode this happened 8 times. This app has become useless. I am looking for alternatives now. It is sad to see how this functional app has been destroyed.

I am ok with putting ads during the broadcast when using the freemium version. But, recently the frequency of ads ruins my experience. Would have given the app 5 stars otherwise.

The application changes the station alone. They also put ads and after an inappropriate ad it simply stops working or sometimes it just stops working for no apparent reason.

Misleading…Buffering Issues please Cancel and Refund
by river ranch hand on 2022/04/30 02:38
Please cancel my subscription and return my money immediately. I just wanted to listen to a rangers baseball game. Your app was misleading and made me believe $14.99 a month would allow me to listen to games; however, it did not. Please cancel my subscription and return my money immediately. Thanks
Could use improvement
by Rockgodtobe on 2022/04/29 20:34
Tends to skip and hang up a lot. Especially during commercial breaks. You will hear the same half of a commercial 3 or 4 times because the app skips back to the beginning. That combined with the constant “hey are you enjoying our app” pop up messages leaves me wishing there were another option for me to use.

It was a good product once
by Dharmabum89 on 2022/04/29 11:59
I do not mind ads and realize TuneIn, just like every company, needs to make revenue from free services. But either their product is garbage or they’re using deceptive tactics to push people to their paid subscription. I’ve used their app for over 6yrs, just the free service, and the live streams were once solid. I’d say the past several years though the live streams cut frequently, rewind, have random noises cut the feed and this happens no matter if I’m my phone, tablet, PC, web browser, app, Wi-Fi, cellular, in a major city, and/or middle of no where. Now, they’re either doing this on purpose to frustrate people to pay for a subscription or their product needs to be fixed.

Why is there so much glitches. I can’t use it because it glitches so bad. Been like this for over a week. The app doesn’t pause correctly. It is very rare when it works correctly. You use to be able to pause and then fast forward or rewind but the buttons are almost always unselectable. So, I can pause and play but it that is it. To change the feed I have to close the app.
Buffering

Ok for slower streams
by ws an de rs do tn et on 2022/04/25 00:54
I like this app because it has the free stations I like with minimal ads. However one of the stations I like has a 128k mp3 stream and the app just can’t handle it. It starts buffering and locks up after only a few minutes, and the phone gets almost too hot to touch. This is on an iPhone 11 running the latest iOS version. Slower streams seem to be OK, although there still is a tendency for some of them to start buffering and eventually lock up the app after about 30 minutes. If you’re having trouble with a station, check the streams option and see if they have a slower stream, app seems to work much better below 128K.
Great content, support incompetent and useless.
by M. in Philly on 2022/04/23 19:36
Time and time again I’ve contacted TuneIn to resolve issues, and time and time again* going through support is a waste of time. Don’t tell me to try solutions (reinstall, restart device) that don’t work and that I’ve already tried, PARTICULARLY if you’d KNOW I’d already tried them if you’d bothered to read the email chain. Seriously. This is crap. When your “support” people don’t know the product as well as the users who are contacting them, and are apparently too lazy to read the whole chain before wasting *our* time with questions we’ve already answered…. *I’ll make an exception and shoutout for “Rachel,” in my latest interaction with them; unfortunately it ended up with someone else.

Not certain what is going on. This used to be a great app. I began to experience ads while paying for premium, so I stopped paying for the ads. Now the app stutters, stops, and generally refuses to play at all. I am using the latest version.
Trash App
by Drewski12321 on 2022/04/22 16:41
I have no choice to use this trash app. My favorite program exclusively streams off of here. TuneIn is making me hate the program I lived for years. No matter where I’m at or which wifi I’m connected to it was always get stuck on a 100% buffering (every 10 min). My theory, every time you pick a station an ad plays. I’m pretty sure TuneIn purposely crashes to you have no choice but to reboot so you can stream more ads. Terrible product. I will rate one star everyday until they pull their heads out of their booty. Did I mention this app was trash?
Really Flakey Performance
by BobKalk on 2022/04/22 10:11
I wish there was more real competition. Other streaming apps work as expected when driving through mountainous terrain. Once the cellular signal is re-acquired by my phone, the other apps just resume playing. Not TuneIn. It just hangs and often must be relaunched several times. It frequently hangs up even when the cellular signal is good.

I’ve relied on TuneIn for listening to CNN, MSNBC and PBS stations and podcasts on my iPhone. I’ve tried the commercial free service and gave up on that when it would stutter, stop, buffer and then rewind a number of seconds. Not acceptable for a paid service! Now, with the ad-supported version I have the same issues, but at least I’m not paying for it. The commercials are annoying, but I just turn the volume down. I use the app less and less these days because it’s just too buggy.

by NewYorkgal1 on 2022/04/17 23:48
App is basically useless with constant buffering, in addition to stations such as CNN and MSNBC not playing at all. This problem is not limited to use on iPhones but persists on Roku app as well. Can’t imagine that anyone would pay for the use of such an unreliable app. Update: I am glad to say I was contacted by the developer, who went out of his way to assist me with the issue I was having. While it is currently being worked on, I appreciated the excellent service, and despite the few glitches, the app offers a wide variety of stations for every type of listener. I would definitely recommend it!

by davziphone on 2022/04/17 17:49
I use Tune in Radio at home and it works well. On my iPhone it constantly repeats every 20 seconds or so. It doesn’t matter whether I’m on Wi-Fi or not it constantly does this. It seems like they need to implement some type of buffer so it plays back smoothly without constantly repeating every 10 seconds.

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?
Used to be the best, now only the ads work
by Tamegravity on 2022/02/15 01:23
This was by far the best streaming app. Then they added ads…. I quit using iHeart after the streaming service made it impossible to listen to. I understand that they needed more revenue so they added ads. Once they added ads, the app froze every 10 minutes. That has been fixed, kudos. Now, I want to listen to a podcast that has 8 minute segments…. There is an ad between every segment. Ok, it is a lot but I can live with it. However, the player stops after every ad and doesn’t advance to the next podcast without…. opening the player and yes, having to listen to yet another ad…. In addition, if you leave and come back, it plays an ad (after you have already listened to the ad) and then proceeds to forget your progress so you need to remember where you were in the podcast. Plus, the app crashes more frequently now and that, of course, leads you to have to listen to another ad, and lose your place in the podcast again. Rince, repeat. There are infrequent updates that fix some of the usability but unless they fix these things soon, I will be finding another app.
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.
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.
Inconsistent At Best
by MTin2 on 2021/02/14 20:01
I&#39;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&#39;t start. It simply spins in place. Yes, I have strong WiFi. Yes I&#39;ve tried on LTE. Yes I&#39;ve tried on 5G. It&#39;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&#39;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 &#34;upcoming impeachment vote&#34; which has already happened...but I digress) and the station still didn&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
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 :/

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.
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.
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.
Great app turned useless
by Adrys87 on 2022/05/05 04:22
I used to love this app. Made it easy to listen to podcasts and radio stations across the globe. It had visual ads and some sound advertisements. In the last 6-9 months they started pushing ads hard. Sometimes the ads interrupt the live broadcast. All stations now start with an ad and god forbid you hit pause and try to come back because you will need to listen to an ad again. It has just become spam at this point. The worst part is it no longer keeps track of where I left off on my podcasts. If I start up the episode it’s spins and plays an ad and in the process loses my progress for the episode. I have to take a screenshot or write down where I left off. As painful as this was, it was some how tolerable but recently the app has started crashing while listening. When I start the episode again I have to listen to an ad and hope I remember where I left off. During the last episode this happened 8 times. This app has become useless. I am looking for alternatives now. It is sad to see how this functional app has been destroyed.
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
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&#39;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&#39;t cancel, so just DON&#39;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&#39;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 !!
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;m listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its &#34;live&#34; 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&#39;t match. &#34;Wait, Wait, Don&#39;t Tell Me&#34; is listed as &#34;Car Talk&#34;
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.
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&#39;ve never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn&#39;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&#39;t happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can&#39;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&#39;m traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can&#39;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
Have enjoyed many years
by My 5th Decade on 2022/02/28 19:13
I started using Tunein Radio in 2011 if memory serves me right, and I have dodged the review our app pop up all this time, so today my conscience got to me 😂, and I will tell what I think. It’s been wonderful free entertainment to me when I couldn’t afford more. I was particularly interested in finding The Dennis Miller Show, and Old Time Radio programs from 40,s through 60,s as well as music from the 70,s. I live in Alaska, and it has great reception here, and when I have travelled to the lower 48, it has worked well there. This year is the first time I upgraded to commercial free, so as not to have interruptions during Baseball games I say give it a try! Laura in Alaska
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.
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.
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.
Terrible!
by Johntrak on 2022/04/12 19:24
TuneIn is for those desperate to get their programming as a last resort. The programme is full of bugs. Constantly stopping the stream. When you push “play” the little loop just keeps going around but no sound. Most of the time a error message pops up. Sometimes nothing happens. Constant buffering prevents stream to work. 2. Constant commercial loops prevent programming to play. Stopping and restarting only brings more looping. We have to eject the app and re start it hoping it will work. It often doesn’t and we just give up. When contacted about the many play and loading issues, their answer was essentially “too bad”. This is the way it works and nuts to you! Don’t waste your time. It isn’t worth it and the aggravation of ineptitude of the app design. Worst ever in a list of streaming apps. And certainly, don’t bother contacting customer “no” service. They will talk down to you and are insulting, not to mention totally uncaring. Who needs that?
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.
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&#39;ve noted are mostly a function of Internet connection. At work, it&#39;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.
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!
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!
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&amp;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.
You must WATCH ads in order to LISTEN a radio station
by Eddie_AR on 2021/12/27 15:17
I noticed this for the last 2 or 3 weeks. After you select the radio station, you MUST watch a 30 sec or 1 minute-long ad. If you go back to the Home Screen, the ad stops playing. This means the user must watch the entire ad before the station plays. Isn’t ironic that you must watch an add in order to listen to the radio? In the past, the TuneIn ads played every hour, and that’s ok. I understand I am a free user. However, with the latest releases, you get interrupted with TuneIn ads every 15 or 20 minutes. As you can imagine, it’s is very annoying to be listening your favorite station, immersed in an interview or a song, and suddenly getting interrupted by this ad. This has happened in more than 5 stations, so I do not think an issue with the station but with the TuneIn app itself.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 &amp; Bill at TuneIn.
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 &amp; then start it again &amp; then look at another app while listening to the the tune-in app, the tune in app shuts down &amp; I have to open it up &amp; 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 &amp; even deleted app &amp; uploaded again &amp; I still have the same problem noted above.
Mostly great
by deebhoo on 2021/12/09 17:14
Updated review: latest update totally fixed frozen screen problem and stopping when opening other apps. Only longtime problem that still remains with tunein premium is that I’m still hearing ads sometimes on MSNBC. CNN doesn’t have that problem. ————————- Content stops playing when I open other apps. Also, when I go back to Tunein to restart playing, I have to wait for the frozen screen to unfreeze until I can restart or change to a different station. Used to be a lot faster. I know, I know - you’re working on it or the problem’s been fixed. No it hasn’t - you answer all complaints like that. I promise to update my review after these issues are fixed.
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!
Used to work.....

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.
Generally I like it but one huge headache

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.
Do not get suckered into tune in premium

If you pay for premium tune in will continue to insert their own commercial that is not a part of the actual broadcast to the front end of EVERY feed you click on. Sometimes they insert their own commercial, which again is not part of the actual broadcast, to the middle of a segment of a radio show just because. They do not operate in good faith &amp; rip off their so-called “premium” users who are are supposed to be “commercial free” with their own extra commercials, taking your subscription fee &amp; still treating you like a non-paying user. I have contacted tune in about this repeatedly &amp; they either deny that they actually do this or make other excuses &amp; never correct the problem. Do not pay for their subscription. They have competition who does not operate in bad faith.
