Charged $9.99

Immediately after realizing I had signed up for a paid subscription I canceled. I was still charged a week later. When I try to cancel again, the only option available is to extend the subscription. BEWARE

Horrid!
by IrishPirQueen on 2020/03/30 20:47
I never signed up for this app! I have no idea HOW they gained access to my account. I periodically check to make sure under settings. AND there is was! $9.99 FOR WHAT? I have iTunes, podcasts! Why would I pay this kind of money. Should you have an issue with this app or any other subscription app, what you do I contact Apple Care. They’ll take your call and and may very well cancel such ABUSE!
THE BEST RADIO very Improved
by G-airtime on 2020/03/30 15:18
13.6 I love the rewind Very good supportVG! 4/18/18 notes: The buffer seems larger than in a few versions ago, less time where sound stops, I can listen to a 2 day old program pause it, open a live program, go back to the 2 day old program & remembers where I paused it 32 minutes from start for example! Larger controls on the screen are great, I always love the rewind and fast-forward from years ago, you can listen to local traffic in the Tunnels unlike AM FM, then repeat the traffic report by rewind if u mis-hear like myself. 3/23/18 new iphone 8+ . Great support also-Esp Neil there.

Newest version is a mess
by CycleGirlie1 on 2020/03/30 12:59
I’ve used this for several years and always loved it, never updated it. Somehow several months ago all my apps updated without my permission and the newer version of iTune radio reminds my why I never update. It regularly—like every five minutes—skips backward and repeats 30 seconds or so of a broadcast. Then eventually it’ll skip all the way forward to catch up to real time mussing a minute or two of the broadcast in between. Also, the commercial breaks also seem to upset the app’s playback ability.

Best app
by Pvaldezmtz on 2020/03/27 14:30
I love this app. Listen to a lot of music different styles all the time
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.

Garbage
by Bobolishous on 2020/03/25 21:15
App is absolute garbage. I have deleted and downloaded several times. I’ve shut my phone off and restarted it several times. All I get is a commercial and then all I get is buffering. I’ve tried connected to Wi-Fi and then disconnected. I’ve tried everything and all it does is buffer.

Too many tune in adds
by Oakleypupp on 2020/03/19 16:44
I love this app as i listen to all of my news during the day. However, the amount of self promotion that tune in does between actual content is overwhelming. Sometimes to the point where i can no longer listen. I have the free version so i know i am allowing it. But we get it, we are listening to tune in, and tune in has it all. We dont need a reminder of everything you got every 2 min. 12 min of self promotional content( mostly repeating commercials) 4 times in an hour is unacceptable.
Thanks

Screen freezes
by Longhornssuck on 2020/03/12 19:04
Several times the last few days I have paused the talk station I was listening to and come back to resume listening and found the screen is locked and it won’t start when I hit the play button. I have restarted the phone a few times but it has not helped. There have also been several instances when an ad pops up on the screen and the station pauses until you physically close the ad or Safari opens but doesn’t go to a web address. The app will also freeze up and you’re unable to pause or skip forward or back 30 seconds. To add to the above, the app will just randomly pause itself. This app continually getting worse instead of better.
User Xperience Fails - Don’t Bother

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.

Very glitchy
by Salicali11 on 2020/03/10 20:00
I initially was going to write that this app is the worst radio app out there. But then I decided I needed to take a step back and be realistic and think about literally all the radio apps out there and how that statement could not be true. After thinking about it, I realized that this is not the worst radio app out there, BUT THE WORST APP OUT THERE REGARDLESS OF GENRE. It is constantly buffering (my connection is fine). When I pause and then continue listening a few minutes later, the show ends up skipping to the live broadcast so I miss everything when it was paused. I constant have to close out of the app besides it just freezes. There are better radio apps out there. I will be listening to the live broadcast and all of a sudden it will just rewind 20 seconds so I have to re-listen to what I just heard. Avoid this one.
Was a Great app for radio stations
by RJLSU on 2020/03/10 18:45
Since you created this app, I’ve always been able to pause a live program and it would save the next 30 minutes to listen to later. That recently stopped and is very disappointing.
Annoying
by Annoyed 😠😠😠 on 2020/03/10 13:41
The app pushes commercials for its own podcasts every 10 seconds, and they run on the same two or three commercials, EVERY DARN 10 SECONDS and they last at least 30 seconds to a minute every time. (i.e. listen 10 secs of show, Tune-In commercials 30 secs to a minute, listen to 19 secs off show, commercials again). It’d be better for them to sell their space and have regular commercials rather than running annoying Tune-In only commercials. It’s why I stopped listening to this station.

Elapsed Time Stamp
by DeuceWalls on 2020/03/09 12:01
This is my favorite radio streaming app but there’s always small updates that ironically fixes what isn’t broken. I used to pause the app to do other things then come back and use the elapsed time stamp (it looked like -> -2:45) to show how much time has passed since I left to scroll to the next part I wanted to listen to. Now it just shows “LIVE” making it much more difficult to find my place that I want to fast foward to next. Would love to see this reverted back. Thanks!

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.
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.
Terrible and practically useless
by Mndylbrck on 2019/11/19 11:00
If you like commercials or have money to pay to remove ads from every app you use, this app is almost useable (if I felt like paying for it, it would still only get two stars from me). You get all the commercials from whatever show you’re listening to, plus as many ads from the app; which amounts to about 35/65% programming vs. ads. Extremely unstable, especially if you’ve paused it - might as well just close the app and reopen it if you did, because it will basically not work until you do - rendering the pause feature useless. The app struggles to stay connected and fails to reconnect frequently when it loses its connection. The ads are intentionally significantly louder than the programming - obviously on purpose - making it something that wakes you up if you doze off or like falling asleep listening. The constant adjusting of the volume alone makes me tend to turn the app off. Overall: commercial overload with intentional annoyances to make you pay. It’s not a functional enough app to pay for as is, coupled with the intentionality of the annoyances earns this app 1 star from me.
Good app
by Superquinho on 2019/04/03 13:58
I wrote a really bad review before (read it below), and to be fair, I’m back to update. They seem to improve this App. - The random Ads are gone, so no more paid ads during radio programs. - 30 seconds reward/forward function is back The loosing of the track once you receive a phone call, or a video/audio starts playing on another app, still an issue. So if you’d like to reward 30 seconds of missed radio stream, you’re with no luck! Well, hopefully they’ll hire back whoever developer was able to add that feature back in the days! DO NO PAY FOR THIS!!!! Use the free version and save some frustration at least. I’ve been using TuneIn for at least 4 years.... and every “upgrade” this app is getting worse! I listen to a Brazilian radio station, and when they are talking the app thinks its a commercial so a Lowe’s, Home Depot and another ad from TuneIn kicks in and I miss the interview or whatever is happening! And it’s always 2 or 3 ads only.... I don’t remember because all I do it’s curse on the 5th generation of the developers :/ The latest version they got rid of the 30seconds rewind/forward! C’mon developers..... really?!?!?! And the feature I miss the most is that if another audio/video comes up, like a phone call/FaceTime you lose the streaming, having to go back to the app and press play. Back in the days, this wasn’t necessary. Over all, it works, but on the pace this is going, in a near future, you’ll only be able to listen to their paid Ads :/
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.
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!
CBS yanked all their stations away from Tunein
by 4th Doctor fan on 2018/08/21 20:20
*To those reviews about subscription or trial period.. you DON'T need to sign up for the Premium service, nor do you need to sign up for Trial period (which does roll into a Premium paid service if you don't cancel, so just DON'T sign up for Trial period, you can just skip past anything regarding signing up). You can listen for FREE, without having to signup for anything. Too bad that CBS pulled all their CBS Sports and CBS Local News stations off from Tunein (but that is not Tunein's fault). And other censorship concerns would only apply if this were a government run service, which it is not. Those commentators have the right to free speech (with their own broadcast antenna, their own newspaper, their own website, etc) for their views, but other companies such as this can not be compelled to distribute such speech if they choose not to carry it. ---orig--- **Everyone needs to complain directly to CBS Radio (and their Entercom owner)... So evidently CBS Radio (and Entercom, who merged with them) is who forced all of their stations off of Tunein as of July/August, requiring you to use their own radio app instead (which is highly inferior to Tunein). Also, that CBS/Entercom app is not supported by Roku and other services (the way Tunein app was used by Roku). First CBS forces you onto their own subscription service for streaming TV, now they do the same thing for radio. Sad !!
A very fine internet tuner - though buffering is question
by Illuminer on 2017/11/18 18:05
So far, this is my favorite radio internet tuner. It covers so many fine stations, and allows you to buffer or store a station's past minutes if you put it on hold. It has tendency to go into a buffer mode erratically and repeats several previous seconds every so often. Actually, a bit too often for comfort. Otherwise, it works flawlessly. As it does store buffered sections, I wish there was a way to know when I'm listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its "live" radio mode , as well being able to optionally go back and rehear previous sections of the broadcast. An update button to shift to live or shift to the buffered sections would be nice. One other needed fix is that quite often, the banner naming the program doesn't match. "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" is listed as "Car Talk"
I ❤️ TuneIn, but there’s things that I wish would make it better!
by PeanutStanton on 2020/01/27 01:29
It’s easy to use to listen to my favorite local and out of state radio stations! I would love to thumb up or thumb down songs on my favorite stations. I used to do that when WVAQ and my other local stations were on iHeartRadio before they got their own app. 2nd I wish the background was colored match to the station logos like on iHeartRadio! 3rd I would love if all the logos would be updated for the stations that have their old logo. And kinda last but not least I wish there would be new stations from companies such as iHeartMedia even though they have their own app, Entercom even though they have their own app, Forever Media even though they have their own app, Burbacch Broadcasting Co. oh! P.s. please take of the ads please. And it would be awesome if the album art would show for the songs radio stations play!
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
If you like commercials, you’ll love TuneIn.
by Rotton Apple Core on 2020/02/26 12:03
Even worse than the frequency is the repetition. The same three or four will repeat at every commercial “break” until you can’t stand it anymore. This is intended to drive you crazy hoping you will purchase the “no commercials” upgrade. If you do, instead of commercials they will loop stale news, interviews, etc. until the live program resumes. In prior releases, I could let it buffer for up to 30 minutes, rewind, and then skip forward through the commercials. Inconvenient, but better than sitting through a six minute segment of mind numbing, idiotic, low budget ads after only three minutes of news. The developers and advertisers obviously were aware of this, so the latest version won’t allow this. Therefore, I will no longer use TuneIn as I would much rather listen to peace and quiet or alternate programming. I recommend everyone else do the same and send them a message loud and clear that we won’t be manipulated.
Indispensable for this traveler
by C of H on 2019/01/28 18:34
Update: I’m finding it does weird stuff like suddenly repeat the last several seconds or jump forward, especially bad if I have to pause a live stream, but even when I’m current. This has cause me to miss key moments I couldn’t retrieve. I demoted this by a star, hoping the developers pay attention to this annoyance. I’ll keep it at 4 stars for now, but if it gets worse I’ll be back for a further demotion. If it gets better, I’ll be back to elevate it. Original: I use this app several times a week and always on long (5+ hour) trips. Except when I have cell access trouble, I've never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn't pull off the road. Podcasts to the rescue! The only (minor) issue I have is that it can take an annoyingly long time to buffer. This doesn't happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can't complain, though. I use this to access radio a send other broadcasts from all over the world. I especially like to get onto live NPR when I'm traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can't go wrong with a free app like this!
Great Radio App But Could Be Improved
by Jean in Tennesee on 2018/03/16 15:06
Update on review: None of these issues have been addressed. There should be something they could do to let the app continue to play when I access a web page which has a SILENT video. Original review: I have used this app for a few years now and I love it! I can listen to music and talk programs which I like much better than what is broadcast on my local stations. However, the app will often stop playing when I navigate to web pages. Usually I find that the page has a video ad which automatically but silently playing somewhere on the page. PLEASE fix this problem! There is no need for the radio to stop playing during a SILENT video. I also like to use the sleep timer at night, but in recent versions the app no longer shows how much time remains on the timer. Please fix this so we can see how much time is left. I also wish the sound was louder. I use my iPad as a portable radio and need to keep it at maximum volume when I'm only a short distance from the iPad. When there is background noise in the room, such as water running, it's often hard to hear the programs unless I use an external amplified speaker. I know my iPad's speakers can handle more volume because some of the video ads on my games are a lot louder than TuneIn.
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.
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.
I ❤️ tunein
by Robbie Stanton on 2020/01/03 23:49
I love the app, I hope one day to own the app and own radio stations promoting them as TuneIn Radio station under the my own radio company “AJG Corporation “ witch is the sister affiliate company of West Virginia Radio Corp (WVRC)! Plus music and entertainment news, recently played songs, album art when a song is being played on a radio station, podcasts, playlist, artist radio and the ability to search and play any song/ album and/or artist thumb up or thumb down songs, current onair personality, WAZE traffic, replay any song from a radio station for free, rewind capability for any radio station, save the radio stations to your favorite list, go to artist profile button, lyrics button, add to Siri button and go to station button. I hope to make radio great again!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 & Bill at TuneIn.
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.
Great, could be better...
by homeranonymous on 2017/11/29 19:01
I use this app nearly every day to listen to live talk radio from several cities or stations throughout the day. My favorite feature is also the root of my only complaint: fast forward and rewind. I LOVE being able to pause playback while on the phone or at a drive-through or etc., but the buffer could be larger and more reliable... rewinding too far or too often can cause the app to fail, jumping the buffer to the end of the content erratically. My star rating is higher than my first review since some of my concerns were addressed and improved. Yay! It would be awesome to have the ability to save the buffer to listen later! How about a timer to record a program for later playback?
Stops and restarts all the time!!
by Troy1428 on 2017/11/14 15:38
I have been a faithful user of this app - using it almost every day since I first downloaded it 4 yrs ago, and in certain ways I love it. I want to be able to give it 5 stars because I really like a lot of its feature, such as the ability to pause, rewind and fast forward, which aren't always options on other radio apps. But I had to give it 2 because it constantly stops in the middle of something I'm listening to and resets. Meaning, in the morning I like to let it play talk radio while I'm showering and then when I get out, I rewind it so I can hear what was playing and fast forward through commercials (very nice!), but maybe halfway through a 30 min section it glitches and resets to live radio so I miss everything in between. This happens at least 3 out of five times. It drives me crazy!!!
Ads are interrupting programming and are too intrusive
by Phuoc-SD on 2019/08/12 19:48
No longer as great as it used to be. I’m totally cool with ads to help developers and content owners produce great apps or great content. I would pay if the value proposition makes sense. Tune In used to work really well with ads. I noticed that the ads on Tune In are completely different from what is on the radio, which makes sense. They used to come during the natural commercial breaks in the programming and all worked well. Lately I’m finding that’s not the case. Ads are coming on the middle of someone speaking and are way too intrusive. I find I’m using Tune In less and less and opting for my favorite station’s native apps, web streaming in the browser or hustling literally tuning back into the radio. Just like people are going vintage with many other things from vinyl to clothing, I predict people will come back to the radio if this keeps up.
Review
by New orchid on 2017/10/12 20:31
I'm gonna say I like this app because it's got plenty of options besides books. My other app was audible for five years but they have an egregious method of getting new books. Tune in app has all sorts of books and documentaries and music and a wide variety of interesting stuff! By egregious I mean you can't get new books on the app but rather you go to the actual site and pick the book and download the book and then back out to the app and "wait". It's just a dinosaur and I need books on demand because I'm a member of a book club. Your price is quite hefty but it's totally worth it. By the way why don't you offer "war brides"? I can't find it for book club
Easier than station sites & apps
by Outdoor Janitor on 2019/03/25 14:03
Often works better than a station’s own app or web site player —began to use this app when it was difficult to get my desktop to start the listen live feature of a local news talk station. It's got a bit of a delay, but that's cool if you are vein, and you want to hear what you said on a call-in show – but aside from that, having a profile with my favorite Christian, & news stations – & being able to pick a syndicated show, and listen even if it's from across the nation, is cool. Occasionally some glitch causes 5 to 30 seconds of a show to repeat, but I don't believe anything is ever dropped…
Keeps cutting off all the time
by keeps cutting off on 2018/12/08 13:32
I have several Radio apps on my iPodAnd don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometime to start and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other app and don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometimes it starts and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other apps
No free versions anymore?!
by ah20_damsel_fly on 2018/09/24 13:03
I’ve had this app for years and always had the free version so I could listen to my morning radio program clearly since where I lived it was spotty on the radio. When I got my new phone I went to download the app, and got this updated version that is now “pay only” thru a 7 day or more trial. Even tho there’s an advertisement for a free version, you only have the option to chose a free trial and paid subscription when you hit the “start listening” button. Come on.... even Pandora has an easy free version with ads I listen to. I just wanted my local radio stations to be clear. If this is what it’s become I’ll just not listen anymore and delete this crap. I’m not about to fall for a trial I can’t get out of so you can swindle my money. I’m on a fixed income and just wanted to laugh a couple hours in the morning between Z93 and Bob and Tom. 🖕🏼🙎🏻‍♀️
Not working on Apple Watch, sneaky about subscription
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/08/07 15:41
UPDATE: After deleting and reinstalling the apps several times, TuneIn suddenly began working properly on Apple Watch and iPhone. I have revised my star rating upward accordingly. But I can’t give more than three stars because of the sneaky first screen after installation that tries to trick the new person into a pricey subscription. *** The app plays nicely on my iPhone, but on the watch it does not install. I reinstalled the app. The previous version at least installed, though it was unresponsive on the watch after that. Other watch apps are working normally. Watch v. 4. , watchOS 5.2.1., iOS 12.3.1. For honesty, you should quit advertising that the app supports Apple Watch. I have emailed Support, but none of the suggestions worked.
Charged during free trial
by HollyDay on 2020/03/05 06:51
I wanted to listen to world news on the road and decided to give this app a try. It offered a 7-day free trial for commercial-free and once I said yes, I got charged on my credit card. 🤔 I contacted the developer within an hour of being the receipt, but I'm not even sure why this would happen on this app, through the App Store, on my Apple account when it was literally an hour into my 7-day trial? At least the developer is responsive and I've contacted Apple as well, but this annoying. I'll think again before agreeing to trial any future app. The app itself though worked fine on my mobile data while driving. The options are limited, but that's probably due to what's available on the radio waves, rather than an app issue. I'll increase rating (4 stars) if my money is returned.
Don’t download you will get charged
by vez214 on 2019/09/23 01:57
I would give this app ZERO stars if I could!! I was trying to find a way to listen to my local football team broadcast while away and came across this app. It “seemed” like it was free to download but then after you download it, you get a week free and then get charged $10 automatically. Of course I had tried to uninstall, delete and cancel the subscription/app. It is made pretty much impossible until you get your receipt from being charged where you can view your subscription and have the option to cancel. I never even used the app and ended up paying $10 for the pleasure of it because it didn’t even play the game I had been looking for. It’s a useless app that is designed to scam you. And of course there is no one to contact in order to get your money back either once it’s been taken.
Scammy “Subscription” Techniques
by nikkirieken on 2019/02/12 13:15
Trial-user beware! I tried this service’s free trial. The service was fine, but it wasn’t something that I personally found worth paying for. So, I did all the steps to cancel my subscription. But NO, apparently you have to cancel your subscription again, even if you have ALREADY cancelled it. So I find a $100 charge on my credit card for a service and app that I had cancelled and deleted a month ago! And adding to the unfairness, instead of being reasonable and charging for one month of this service, they charge for a FULL YEAR. Now, they’ve taken $100 from me and will NOT refund me, even after I described the situation. So if you do your free trial and want to cancel before you get charged, be sure to cancel twice. Heck maybe a third time. Maybe cancel that credit card. Maybe even change your name and move to another country.
Corporate greed specialist hired by tune in for app revamp
by mrbungle5 on 2018/01/03 20:53
I’ve used tune in for many years now and was psyched to see the new updated app. Upon download it only offered me two options, both of which come with a $99 subscription. I instantly deleted app. Honestly I was afraid of hitting the wrong button it was so confusing (and I’m sure it was designed that way). As I went through the reviews for the update, there was one frequent response to a lot of the complaints, “TuneIn is free for all users”. When trying out the app I looked to avoid the subscription sign-up and tryed to use it for free, there was no way to do it, it kept sending you back to the subscription page every time you hit “play” on a station. It seems as though tunein has hired a corporate greed specialist to eek out any subscription fees they could, plaguing previous and new users alike with a $99 fee. Ouch.
Internet hacks and wire fraud
by flickenu on 2018/11/05 23:03
I had their service for over two years. Recently, another source hacked my credit card. I immediately reported to my bank they canceled that card and the bank issued a new one. Right after these individuals try to use that old card to pay my monthly fee. Before I could update this account With them. I made a pledge on Facebook using the new card, the only charge on that card. Two days later that card was added to that account without my permission. The only way they had access to that bank card was to hack my Facebook account. So beware of this is Invasion on your personal banking.I have canceled my subscription and turning it over to the FBI.
Only use it because there are no other options
by mandylion6 on 2018/08/22 11:19
It’s the only way to listen to my local radio stations while I’m traveling. However, if there were other options I would use them instead. Some of the programs I’m listening to are so quiet I have to have the volume maxed out only to injure my ears when the advertisements start. This is not a problem when I listen to these stations on my radio. Other times it gives me the ad that usually plays when you start the station on repeat instead of the station. If you aren’t careful with an unlocked screen, you can tap sketchy banner ads asking for all your personal information. They allow obvious scams to advertise on them like “tap now for a free iPhone!!” This app has a lot of potential, but these issues need to be fixed.
Fixed!
by Wayne Beamer on 2019/09/08 00:39
I pulled the trigger on TuneIn premium at the yearly rate of $99 through my Mac computer. However, when I download the app for my iPhone, all I see is a monthly option for $9.99 and no way to login. How can I get the yearly rate without being billed twice? I like the convenience of sports in one place... REVISED REVIEW: After working patiently with tech support, they navigated me to the right place on the app to login to the app. You’d think the app dev team would put the login page in a spot where you could find it easily. So far, it works and getting access to live sports for $99 a year for my car, it’s a great and more affordable alternative to Sirius XM.
From great (2012) to decent (2015) to awful (2017)
by I ♥ Hackney™ on 2017/10/10 01:22
Newer "Newish review".... WHY WOULD YOU REMOVE THE IN-APP VOLUME CONTROL?????????? ______________ "Newish review".... since they only allow you to "edit" reviews, not post new ones. STAR TAKEN AWAY. I NEVER would have updated as past new versions have constantly let users down, but 75% of stations I listened to previously stopped working. I thought it was an update issue, so I updated. SURPRISE!! Guess what?? 75% of the stations I used to listen to on TuneIn STILL don't work. "We're sorry but an error has occurred". There version of the spinning carousel wheel. Also, the new UI format is heavy handed, clumsy and honestly a big step back into 2010. AND WEIRDLY... why up rewind or ff buttons to 30 sec??? 15 sec was just fine!! You just set yourself back another 4 years w that one TI. #stoptryingtofixstuffthataintbroke! My review from 2015..., FYI Why?! I'll tell you why... So they can play another ad when you have to restart stream manually. So ridiculous. We all get it, you need money to run this thing, but STOP BEING SO GREEDY and running horribly mainstream and REMARKABLY INEFFECTIVE ads EVERY TIME A CHANNEL IS TUNED. I use this app because it's the only option with this many stations. The second someone develops one even remotely close to tunein, I'm deleting.
Good options, bad execution
by MAC177 on 2019/09/27 19:06
I enjoy a number of podcasts that are available through TuneIn. My issue is with downloading of said podcasts. I used to be able to download any and all without issue, but for the last few months the ability has gotten worse and worse. At this point I try to download and the progress symbol just spins and spins and never completes. I’ve tried on cell data and different WiFi networks. My phone has plenty of available space. App is up to date. Still no luck. My drive to and from work includes a large section where I don’t have cell service, so being able to download and listen when I can’t stream is key. Sadly, I’m going to have to start looking elsewhere for a podcast app and just hope my favorites are available there as well.
Great app for podcasts..
by Endmysuff34ing on 2019/12/23 01:09
But.. I have had some issues when using TuneIn such as pausing what I’m listening to using my earbuds and then pushing play and it restarting completely, also why can you just slide to the point that you left off rather than it buffering the entire audio file before you can skip? It’s extremely annoying waiting for a podcast to buffer so I can skip back to the part I was at. Sometimes it won’t even remember where I was listening from and so I have to download the podcast or just wait for it to buffer to return to listening. Overall a fantastic app that does what it’s supposed to, but could use those minor updates.
No customer support
by MayorJim on 2018/09/13 03:14
Be very careful with this app. I purchased the premium ver. for $100. I renewed my sub on 9/11 via the Apple store with my VISA. On 9/12 I got a fraud warning from my Bank that TuneIn charged $50 on my MasterCard. I tried contacting TuneIn 1st, but they have no customer service phone...just email. So, I emailed them. After several hours of no reply, I contacted my bank and they placed a stop pay and reissued a new CC card to me. TuneIn finally got back to me and wanted a screen shot of my bank statement (lol, yeah right). I sent them the fraud alert showing the $50 transaction. After about 12 hours, TuneIn got back, via email, saying I’d have to contact Apple with any concerns. My concern was that TuneIn tried charging me twice via 2 different CCs ...and 2 different amounts. As I said...watch your payments with this outfit VERY closely since you can’t call them...and they can’t read!
Bait and Switch Premium Upgrade
by GADFLY SOUP on 2018/04/20 00:07
I had no warning I “was upgrading to Premium status.” The upgrade was buried in a request for a Google email address. This isn’t free. Not all stations are Ad-free, even paying for Premium. I want to shut it off. Now, they’re directing I go to my ITunes account to stop the auto billing. But, there’s no way to do that from my iPhone. Is this more of Apple abandoning it’s users by playing Bait and Switch? You know Apple is getting their cut of the monthly premium fee. Shame on you company executives. I can just hear them responding “Did you read the fine print before we pushed you off the cliff?”
What once was...
by sonofwolf1 on 2018/02/17 18:14
Unfortunately, the tune in app no longer operates free from many commercial interferences — I find local (Chicago) AM radio to be worse... I got the app to listen to WBEZ 91.5 NPR. What’s truly odd is that the early versions operated mostly without glitches, whereas now it’s fraught with them, ie unexpected channel changes etc. And this is all totally weird because one would think later versions would’ve attended to glitches. No, it’s not my device(s) either. Another annoyance is the pay to listen “major” sports airings, which I doubt anyone actually pays to listen to... Instead tune in tunes out local coverage. Thanks
Won’t refund
by Firsttimewishbuyer on 2019/04/02 19:43
I signed up for the free trial trying to listen to an interview my daughter was participating in in my home town while I was out of town and so couldn’t pick up the radio station signal. I googled the radio station and it said I would be able to listen to the radio station on the TuneIn App. I downloaded it for free, but said I had to subscribe to listen. Hence, I signed up for the free trial. However, I wasn’t able to listen to her interview because after I had signed up, it said it had no live feeds from the radio station I needed. I canceled it today, being one week later. They had already billed me the $9.99 for the month even though I did not use the app AT ALL and canceled it before the free trial ended! You should NOT have to cancel a free trial subscription 24 hours before the free trial ends to avoid being charged the monthly renewel fee. Not Cool!!!
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
v12 broke the playback controls
by wily ludo on 2017/10/19 02:40
I use the Zoomed display setting on my iPhone. Since v12.0 of this app was released, the playback controls have been overlayed with the playback progress bar, making the controls difficult to activate. When you touch them, usually nothing happens. The menu containing access to sleep timer is particularly difficult to activate. If I change my phone’s display settings, the app works fine. But I am not changing a global preference to accommodate one app’s design oversight. I have tried numerous times to report this bug via tunein support but it’s as if the reps don’t use the app, as they *always* say they don’t understand what I’m describing, and they have never escalated my reports to the engineers who would understand. I have used TuneIn apps for many years on many phones. Today I am trying alternatives. Goodbye tunein.

I never signed up for this app! I have no idea HOW they gained access to my account. I periodically check to make sure under settings. AND there is was! $9.99 FOR WHAT? I have iTunes, podcasts! Why would I pay this kind of money. Should you have an issue with this app or any other subscription app, what you do I contact Apple Care. They’ll take your call and and may very well cancel such ABUSE!
THE BEST RADIO very Improved
by G-airtime on 2020/03/30 15:18
13.6 I love the rewind Very good supportVG! 4/18/18 notes: The buffer seems larger than in a few versions ago, less time where sound stops, I can listen to a 2 day old program pause it, open a live program, go back to the 2 day old program & remembers where I paused it 32 minutes from start for example! Larger controls on the screen are great, I always love the rewind and fast-forward from years ago, you can listen to local traffic in the Tunnels unlike AM FM, then repeat the traffic report by rewind if u mis-hear like myself. 3/23/18 new iphone 8+ . Great support also-Esp Neil there.

Newest version is a mess
by CycleGirlie1 on 2020/03/30 12:59
I’ve used this for several years and always loved it, never updated it. Somehow several months ago all my apps updated without my permission and the newer version of iTune radio reminds my why I never update. It regularly—like every five minutes—skips backward and repeats 30 seconds or so of a broadcast. Then eventually it’ll skip all the way forward to catch up to real time mussing a minute or two of the broadcast in between. Also, the commercial breaks also seem to upset the app’s playback ability.

Generally I like it but one huge headache
by COC Champ on 2020/03/27 14:07
I really like the app. It allows me to listen to stations and music I otherwise wouldn’t hear living where I am. It also is a great way to listen to several podcasts. But my headache comes from the fact that because I mainly listen to the podcasts to and from work, I don’t listen to them all in one sitting. So I try to continue with the same podcast I was listening to the truck ride before so to speak. It would be nice if the podcast would remember where I was in the podcast from the last time rather than starting over at the first. Then I have to let it download to the spot I was and most of the time I don’t look at the timer to see where I am leaving off when I get out of the truck. Please get that fixed. It is very frustrating.

I love your software! Heavily recommend it too. But my security software keeps popping up with bursts of “‘unsafe website”’ warnings. I do not have this issue on your ad-free product.

Too many tune in adds
by Oakleypupp on 2020/03/19 16:44
I love this app as i listen to all of my news during the day. However, the amount of self promotion that tune in does between actual content is overwhelming. Sometimes to the point where i can no longer listen. I have the free version so i know i am allowing it. But we get it, we are listening to tune in, and tune in has it all. We dont need a reminder of everything you got every 2 min. 12 min of self promotional content( mostly repeating commercials) 4 times in an hour is unacceptable.
Thanks

Screen freezes
by Longhornssuck on 2020/03/12 19:04
Several times the last few days I have paused the talk station I was listening to and come back to resume listening and found the screen is locked and it won’t start when I hit the play button. I have restarted the phone a few times but it has not helped. There have also been several instances when an ad pops up on the screen and the station pauses until you physically close the ad or Safari opens but doesn’t go to a web address. The app will also freeze up and you’re unable to pause or skip forward or back 30 seconds. To add to the above, the app will just randomly pause itself. This app continually getting worse instead of better.

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.

Very glitchy
by Salicali11 on 2020/03/10 20:00
I initially was going to write that this app is the worst radio app out there. But then I decided I needed to take a step back and be realistic and think about literally all the radio apps out there and how that statement could not be true. After thinking about it, I realized that this is not the worst radio app out there, BUT THE WORST APP OUT THERE REGARDLESS OF GENRE. It is constantly buffering (my connection is fine). When I pause and then continue listening a few minutes later, the show ends up skipping to the live broadcast so I miss everything when it was paused. I constant have to close out of the app besides it just freezes. There are better radio apps out there. I will be listening to the live broadcast and all of a sudden it will just rewind 20 seconds so I have to re-listen to what I just heard. Avoid this one.
Was a Great app for radio stations
by RJLSU on 2020/03/10 18:45
Since you created this app, I’ve always been able to pause a live program and it would save the next 30 minutes to listen to later. That recently stopped and is very disappointing.
Annoying
by Annoyed 😠😠😠 on 2020/03/10 13:41
The app pushes commercials for its own podcasts every 10 seconds, and they run on the same two or three commercials, EVERY DARN 10 SECONDS and they last at least 30 seconds to a minute every time. (i.e. listen 10 secs of show, Tune-In commercials 30 secs to a minute, listen to 19 secs off show, commercials again). It’d be better for them to sell their space and have regular commercials rather than running annoying Tune-In only commercials. It’s why I stopped listening to this station.

Elapsed Time Stamp
by DeuceWalls on 2020/03/09 12:01
This is my favorite radio streaming app but there’s always small updates that ironically fixes what isn’t broken. I used to pause the app to do other things then come back and use the elapsed time stamp (it looked like -> -2:45) to show how much time has passed since I left to scroll to the next part I wanted to listen to. Now it just shows “LIVE” making it much more difficult to find my place that I want to fast foward to next. Would love to see this reverted back. Thanks!

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.
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.
Terrible and practically useless
by Mndylbrck on 2019/11/19 11:00
If you like commercials or have money to pay to remove ads from every app you use, this app is almost useable (if I felt like paying for it, it would still only get two stars from me). You get all the commercials from whatever show you’re listening to, plus as many ads from the app; which amounts to about 35/65% programming vs. ads. Extremely unstable, especially if you’ve paused it - might as well just close the app and reopen it if you did, because it will basically not work until you do - rendering the pause feature useless. The app struggles to stay connected and fails to reconnect frequently when it loses its connection. The ads are intentionally significantly louder than the programming - obviously on purpose - making it something that wakes you up if you doze off or like falling asleep listening. The constant adjusting of the volume alone makes me tend to turn the app off. Overall: commercial overload with intentional annoyances to make you pay. It’s not a functional enough app to pay for as is, coupled with the intentionality of the annoyances earns this app 1 star from me.
Good app
by Superquinho on 2019/04/03 13:58
I wrote a really bad review before (read it below), and to be fair, I’m back to update. They seem to improve this App. - The random Ads are gone, so no more paid ads during radio programs. - 30 seconds reward/forward function is back The loosing of the track once you receive a phone call, or a video/audio starts playing on another app, still an issue. So if you’d like to reward 30 seconds of missed radio stream, you’re with no luck! Well, hopefully they’ll hire back whoever developer was able to add that feature back in the days! DO NO PAY FOR THIS!!!! Use the free version and save some frustration at least. I’ve been using TuneIn for at least 4 years.... and every “upgrade” this app is getting worse! I listen to a Brazilian radio station, and when they are talking the app thinks its a commercial so a Lowe’s, Home Depot and another ad from TuneIn kicks in and I miss the interview or whatever is happening! And it’s always 2 or 3 ads only.... I don’t remember because all I do it’s curse on the 5th generation of the developers :/ The latest version they got rid of the 30seconds rewind/forward! C’mon developers..... really?!?!?! And the feature I miss the most is that if another audio/video comes up, like a phone call/FaceTime you lose the streaming, having to go back to the app and press play. Back in the days, this wasn’t necessary. Over all, it works, but on the pace this is going, in a near future, you’ll only be able to listen to their paid Ads :/
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.
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!
CBS yanked all their stations away from Tunein
by 4th Doctor fan on 2018/08/21 20:20
*To those reviews about subscription or trial period.. you DON'T need to sign up for the Premium service, nor do you need to sign up for Trial period (which does roll into a Premium paid service if you don't cancel, so just DON'T sign up for Trial period, you can just skip past anything regarding signing up). You can listen for FREE, without having to signup for anything. Too bad that CBS pulled all their CBS Sports and CBS Local News stations off from Tunein (but that is not Tunein's fault). And other censorship concerns would only apply if this were a government run service, which it is not. Those commentators have the right to free speech (with their own broadcast antenna, their own newspaper, their own website, etc) for their views, but other companies such as this can not be compelled to distribute such speech if they choose not to carry it. ---orig--- **Everyone needs to complain directly to CBS Radio (and their Entercom owner)... So evidently CBS Radio (and Entercom, who merged with them) is who forced all of their stations off of Tunein as of July/August, requiring you to use their own radio app instead (which is highly inferior to Tunein). Also, that CBS/Entercom app is not supported by Roku and other services (the way Tunein app was used by Roku). First CBS forces you onto their own subscription service for streaming TV, now they do the same thing for radio. Sad !!
A very fine internet tuner - though buffering is question
by Illuminer on 2017/11/18 18:05
So far, this is my favorite radio internet tuner. It covers so many fine stations, and allows you to buffer or store a station's past minutes if you put it on hold. It has tendency to go into a buffer mode erratically and repeats several previous seconds every so often. Actually, a bit too often for comfort. Otherwise, it works flawlessly. As it does store buffered sections, I wish there was a way to know when I'm listening to buffered sections and how many minutes it has buffered, or is in its "live" radio mode , as well being able to optionally go back and rehear previous sections of the broadcast. An update button to shift to live or shift to the buffered sections would be nice. One other needed fix is that quite often, the banner naming the program doesn't match. "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" is listed as "Car Talk"
I ❤️ TuneIn, but there’s things that I wish would make it better!
by PeanutStanton on 2020/01/27 01:29
It’s easy to use to listen to my favorite local and out of state radio stations! I would love to thumb up or thumb down songs on my favorite stations. I used to do that when WVAQ and my other local stations were on iHeartRadio before they got their own app. 2nd I wish the background was colored match to the station logos like on iHeartRadio! 3rd I would love if all the logos would be updated for the stations that have their old logo. And kinda last but not least I wish there would be new stations from companies such as iHeartMedia even though they have their own app, Entercom even though they have their own app, Forever Media even though they have their own app, Burbacch Broadcasting Co. oh! P.s. please take of the ads please. And it would be awesome if the album art would show for the songs radio stations play!
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
If you like commercials, you’ll love TuneIn.
by Rotton Apple Core on 2020/02/26 12:03
Even worse than the frequency is the repetition. The same three or four will repeat at every commercial “break” until you can’t stand it anymore. This is intended to drive you crazy hoping you will purchase the “no commercials” upgrade. If you do, instead of commercials they will loop stale news, interviews, etc. until the live program resumes. In prior releases, I could let it buffer for up to 30 minutes, rewind, and then skip forward through the commercials. Inconvenient, but better than sitting through a six minute segment of mind numbing, idiotic, low budget ads after only three minutes of news. The developers and advertisers obviously were aware of this, so the latest version won’t allow this. Therefore, I will no longer use TuneIn as I would much rather listen to peace and quiet or alternate programming. I recommend everyone else do the same and send them a message loud and clear that we won’t be manipulated.
Indispensable for this traveler
by C of H on 2019/01/28 18:34
Update: I’m finding it does weird stuff like suddenly repeat the last several seconds or jump forward, especially bad if I have to pause a live stream, but even when I’m current. This has cause me to miss key moments I couldn’t retrieve. I demoted this by a star, hoping the developers pay attention to this annoyance. I’ll keep it at 4 stars for now, but if it gets worse I’ll be back for a further demotion. If it gets better, I’ll be back to elevate it. Original: I use this app several times a week and always on long (5+ hour) trips. Except when I have cell access trouble, I've never had a problem with this. It may even have saved my life a couple of time when I got sleepy and couldn't pull off the road. Podcasts to the rescue! The only (minor) issue I have is that it can take an annoyingly long time to buffer. This doesn't happen often and it may be more a function of wifi or Internet access. Though it happens on my strong home wifi. Can't complain, though. I use this to access radio a send other broadcasts from all over the world. I especially like to get onto live NPR when I'm traveling or missed my local show. Bottom line: Can't go wrong with a free app like this!
Great Radio App But Could Be Improved
by Jean in Tennesee on 2018/03/16 15:06
Update on review: None of these issues have been addressed. There should be something they could do to let the app continue to play when I access a web page which has a SILENT video. Original review: I have used this app for a few years now and I love it! I can listen to music and talk programs which I like much better than what is broadcast on my local stations. However, the app will often stop playing when I navigate to web pages. Usually I find that the page has a video ad which automatically but silently playing somewhere on the page. PLEASE fix this problem! There is no need for the radio to stop playing during a SILENT video. I also like to use the sleep timer at night, but in recent versions the app no longer shows how much time remains on the timer. Please fix this so we can see how much time is left. I also wish the sound was louder. I use my iPad as a portable radio and need to keep it at maximum volume when I'm only a short distance from the iPad. When there is background noise in the room, such as water running, it's often hard to hear the programs unless I use an external amplified speaker. I know my iPad's speakers can handle more volume because some of the video ads on my games are a lot louder than TuneIn.
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.
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.
I ❤️ tunein
by Robbie Stanton on 2020/01/03 23:49
I love the app, I hope one day to own the app and own radio stations promoting them as TuneIn Radio station under the my own radio company “AJG Corporation “ witch is the sister affiliate company of West Virginia Radio Corp (WVRC)! Plus music and entertainment news, recently played songs, album art when a song is being played on a radio station, podcasts, playlist, artist radio and the ability to search and play any song/ album and/or artist thumb up or thumb down songs, current onair personality, WAZE traffic, replay any song from a radio station for free, rewind capability for any radio station, save the radio stations to your favorite list, go to artist profile button, lyrics button, add to Siri button and go to station button. I hope to make radio great again!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 & Bill at TuneIn.
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.
Great, could be better...
by homeranonymous on 2017/11/29 19:01
I use this app nearly every day to listen to live talk radio from several cities or stations throughout the day. My favorite feature is also the root of my only complaint: fast forward and rewind. I LOVE being able to pause playback while on the phone or at a drive-through or etc., but the buffer could be larger and more reliable... rewinding too far or too often can cause the app to fail, jumping the buffer to the end of the content erratically. My star rating is higher than my first review since some of my concerns were addressed and improved. Yay! It would be awesome to have the ability to save the buffer to listen later! How about a timer to record a program for later playback?
Stops and restarts all the time!!
by Troy1428 on 2017/11/14 15:38
I have been a faithful user of this app - using it almost every day since I first downloaded it 4 yrs ago, and in certain ways I love it. I want to be able to give it 5 stars because I really like a lot of its feature, such as the ability to pause, rewind and fast forward, which aren't always options on other radio apps. But I had to give it 2 because it constantly stops in the middle of something I'm listening to and resets. Meaning, in the morning I like to let it play talk radio while I'm showering and then when I get out, I rewind it so I can hear what was playing and fast forward through commercials (very nice!), but maybe halfway through a 30 min section it glitches and resets to live radio so I miss everything in between. This happens at least 3 out of five times. It drives me crazy!!!
Ads are interrupting programming and are too intrusive
by Phuoc-SD on 2019/08/12 19:48
No longer as great as it used to be. I’m totally cool with ads to help developers and content owners produce great apps or great content. I would pay if the value proposition makes sense. Tune In used to work really well with ads. I noticed that the ads on Tune In are completely different from what is on the radio, which makes sense. They used to come during the natural commercial breaks in the programming and all worked well. Lately I’m finding that’s not the case. Ads are coming on the middle of someone speaking and are way too intrusive. I find I’m using Tune In less and less and opting for my favorite station’s native apps, web streaming in the browser or hustling literally tuning back into the radio. Just like people are going vintage with many other things from vinyl to clothing, I predict people will come back to the radio if this keeps up.
Review
by New orchid on 2017/10/12 20:31
I'm gonna say I like this app because it's got plenty of options besides books. My other app was audible for five years but they have an egregious method of getting new books. Tune in app has all sorts of books and documentaries and music and a wide variety of interesting stuff! By egregious I mean you can't get new books on the app but rather you go to the actual site and pick the book and download the book and then back out to the app and "wait". It's just a dinosaur and I need books on demand because I'm a member of a book club. Your price is quite hefty but it's totally worth it. By the way why don't you offer "war brides"? I can't find it for book club
Easier than station sites & apps
by Outdoor Janitor on 2019/03/25 14:03
Often works better than a station’s own app or web site player —began to use this app when it was difficult to get my desktop to start the listen live feature of a local news talk station. It's got a bit of a delay, but that's cool if you are vein, and you want to hear what you said on a call-in show – but aside from that, having a profile with my favorite Christian, & news stations – & being able to pick a syndicated show, and listen even if it's from across the nation, is cool. Occasionally some glitch causes 5 to 30 seconds of a show to repeat, but I don't believe anything is ever dropped…
Keeps cutting off all the time
by keeps cutting off on 2018/12/08 13:32
I have several Radio apps on my iPodAnd don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometime to start and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other app and don’t have trouble with the others but tune in continues to cut out every 20 to 60 minutes then goes back to the home screen I have to start it up again sometimes it starts and immediately cut off then sometimes it will start and stay on 420 to 60 minutes. It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s not my iPad because I don’t have this problem with other apps
No free versions anymore?!
by ah20_damsel_fly on 2018/09/24 13:03
I’ve had this app for years and always had the free version so I could listen to my morning radio program clearly since where I lived it was spotty on the radio. When I got my new phone I went to download the app, and got this updated version that is now “pay only” thru a 7 day or more trial. Even tho there’s an advertisement for a free version, you only have the option to chose a free trial and paid subscription when you hit the “start listening” button. Come on.... even Pandora has an easy free version with ads I listen to. I just wanted my local radio stations to be clear. If this is what it’s become I’ll just not listen anymore and delete this crap. I’m not about to fall for a trial I can’t get out of so you can swindle my money. I’m on a fixed income and just wanted to laugh a couple hours in the morning between Z93 and Bob and Tom. 🖕🏼🙎🏻‍♀️
Not working on Apple Watch, sneaky about subscription
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/08/07 15:41
UPDATE: After deleting and reinstalling the apps several times, TuneIn suddenly began working properly on Apple Watch and iPhone. I have revised my star rating upward accordingly. But I can’t give more than three stars because of the sneaky first screen after installation that tries to trick the new person into a pricey subscription. *** The app plays nicely on my iPhone, but on the watch it does not install. I reinstalled the app. The previous version at least installed, though it was unresponsive on the watch after that. Other watch apps are working normally. Watch v. 4. , watchOS 5.2.1., iOS 12.3.1. For honesty, you should quit advertising that the app supports Apple Watch. I have emailed Support, but none of the suggestions worked.
Charged during free trial
by HollyDay on 2020/03/05 06:51
I wanted to listen to world news on the road and decided to give this app a try. It offered a 7-day free trial for commercial-free and once I said yes, I got charged on my credit card. 🤔 I contacted the developer within an hour of being the receipt, but I'm not even sure why this would happen on this app, through the App Store, on my Apple account when it was literally an hour into my 7-day trial? At least the developer is responsive and I've contacted Apple as well, but this annoying. I'll think again before agreeing to trial any future app. The app itself though worked fine on my mobile data while driving. The options are limited, but that's probably due to what's available on the radio waves, rather than an app issue. I'll increase rating (4 stars) if my money is returned.
Don’t download you will get charged
by vez214 on 2019/09/23 01:57
I would give this app ZERO stars if I could!! I was trying to find a way to listen to my local football team broadcast while away and came across this app. It “seemed” like it was free to download but then after you download it, you get a week free and then get charged $10 automatically. Of course I had tried to uninstall, delete and cancel the subscription/app. It is made pretty much impossible until you get your receipt from being charged where you can view your subscription and have the option to cancel. I never even used the app and ended up paying $10 for the pleasure of it because it didn’t even play the game I had been looking for. It’s a useless app that is designed to scam you. And of course there is no one to contact in order to get your money back either once it’s been taken.
Scammy “Subscription” Techniques
by nikkirieken on 2019/02/12 13:15
Trial-user beware! I tried this service’s free trial. The service was fine, but it wasn’t something that I personally found worth paying for. So, I did all the steps to cancel my subscription. But NO, apparently you have to cancel your subscription again, even if you have ALREADY cancelled it. So I find a $100 charge on my credit card for a service and app that I had cancelled and deleted a month ago! And adding to the unfairness, instead of being reasonable and charging for one month of this service, they charge for a FULL YEAR. Now, they’ve taken $100 from me and will NOT refund me, even after I described the situation. So if you do your free trial and want to cancel before you get charged, be sure to cancel twice. Heck maybe a third time. Maybe cancel that credit card. Maybe even change your name and move to another country.
Corporate greed specialist hired by tune in for app revamp
by mrbungle5 on 2018/01/03 20:53
I’ve used tune in for many years now and was psyched to see the new updated app. Upon download it only offered me two options, both of which come with a $99 subscription. I instantly deleted app. Honestly I was afraid of hitting the wrong button it was so confusing (and I’m sure it was designed that way). As I went through the reviews for the update, there was one frequent response to a lot of the complaints, “TuneIn is free for all users”. When trying out the app I looked to avoid the subscription sign-up and tryed to use it for free, there was no way to do it, it kept sending you back to the subscription page every time you hit “play” on a station. It seems as though tunein has hired a corporate greed specialist to eek out any subscription fees they could, plaguing previous and new users alike with a $99 fee. Ouch.
Internet hacks and wire fraud
by flickenu on 2018/11/05 23:03
I had their service for over two years. Recently, another source hacked my credit card. I immediately reported to my bank they canceled that card and the bank issued a new one. Right after these individuals try to use that old card to pay my monthly fee. Before I could update this account With them. I made a pledge on Facebook using the new card, the only charge on that card. Two days later that card was added to that account without my permission. The only way they had access to that bank card was to hack my Facebook account. So beware of this is Invasion on your personal banking.I have canceled my subscription and turning it over to the FBI.
Only use it because there are no other options
by mandylion6 on 2018/08/22 11:19
It’s the only way to listen to my local radio stations while I’m traveling. However, if there were other options I would use them instead. Some of the programs I’m listening to are so quiet I have to have the volume maxed out only to injure my ears when the advertisements start. This is not a problem when I listen to these stations on my radio. Other times it gives me the ad that usually plays when you start the station on repeat instead of the station. If you aren’t careful with an unlocked screen, you can tap sketchy banner ads asking for all your personal information. They allow obvious scams to advertise on them like “tap now for a free iPhone!!” This app has a lot of potential, but these issues need to be fixed.
Fixed!
by Wayne Beamer on 2019/09/08 00:39
I pulled the trigger on TuneIn premium at the yearly rate of $99 through my Mac computer. However, when I download the app for my iPhone, all I see is a monthly option for $9.99 and no way to login. How can I get the yearly rate without being billed twice? I like the convenience of sports in one place... REVISED REVIEW: After working patiently with tech support, they navigated me to the right place on the app to login to the app. You’d think the app dev team would put the login page in a spot where you could find it easily. So far, it works and getting access to live sports for $99 a year for my car, it’s a great and more affordable alternative to Sirius XM.
From great (2012) to decent (2015) to awful (2017)
by I ♥ Hackney™ on 2017/10/10 01:22
Newer "Newish review".... WHY WOULD YOU REMOVE THE IN-APP VOLUME CONTROL?????????? ______________ "Newish review".... since they only allow you to "edit" reviews, not post new ones. STAR TAKEN AWAY. I NEVER would have updated as past new versions have constantly let users down, but 75% of stations I listened to previously stopped working. I thought it was an update issue, so I updated. SURPRISE!! Guess what?? 75% of the stations I used to listen to on TuneIn STILL don't work. "We're sorry but an error has occurred". There version of the spinning carousel wheel. Also, the new UI format is heavy handed, clumsy and honestly a big step back into 2010. AND WEIRDLY... why up rewind or ff buttons to 30 sec??? 15 sec was just fine!! You just set yourself back another 4 years w that one TI. #stoptryingtofixstuffthataintbroke! My review from 2015..., FYI Why?! I'll tell you why... So they can play another ad when you have to restart stream manually. So ridiculous. We all get it, you need money to run this thing, but STOP BEING SO GREEDY and running horribly mainstream and REMARKABLY INEFFECTIVE ads EVERY TIME A CHANNEL IS TUNED. I use this app because it's the only option with this many stations. The second someone develops one even remotely close to tunein, I'm deleting.
Good options, bad execution
by MAC177 on 2019/09/27 19:06
I enjoy a number of podcasts that are available through TuneIn. My issue is with downloading of said podcasts. I used to be able to download any and all without issue, but for the last few months the ability has gotten worse and worse. At this point I try to download and the progress symbol just spins and spins and never completes. I’ve tried on cell data and different WiFi networks. My phone has plenty of available space. App is up to date. Still no luck. My drive to and from work includes a large section where I don’t have cell service, so being able to download and listen when I can’t stream is key. Sadly, I’m going to have to start looking elsewhere for a podcast app and just hope my favorites are available there as well.
Great app for podcasts..
by Endmysuff34ing on 2019/12/23 01:09
But.. I have had some issues when using TuneIn such as pausing what I’m listening to using my earbuds and then pushing play and it restarting completely, also why can you just slide to the point that you left off rather than it buffering the entire audio file before you can skip? It’s extremely annoying waiting for a podcast to buffer so I can skip back to the part I was at. Sometimes it won’t even remember where I was listening from and so I have to download the podcast or just wait for it to buffer to return to listening. Overall a fantastic app that does what it’s supposed to, but could use those minor updates.
No customer support
by MayorJim on 2018/09/13 03:14
Be very careful with this app. I purchased the premium ver. for $100. I renewed my sub on 9/11 via the Apple store with my VISA. On 9/12 I got a fraud warning from my Bank that TuneIn charged $50 on my MasterCard. I tried contacting TuneIn 1st, but they have no customer service phone...just email. So, I emailed them. After several hours of no reply, I contacted my bank and they placed a stop pay and reissued a new CC card to me. TuneIn finally got back to me and wanted a screen shot of my bank statement (lol, yeah right). I sent them the fraud alert showing the $50 transaction. After about 12 hours, TuneIn got back, via email, saying I’d have to contact Apple with any concerns. My concern was that TuneIn tried charging me twice via 2 different CCs ...and 2 different amounts. As I said...watch your payments with this outfit VERY closely since you can’t call them...and they can’t read!
Bait and Switch Premium Upgrade
by GADFLY SOUP on 2018/04/20 00:07
I had no warning I “was upgrading to Premium status.” The upgrade was buried in a request for a Google email address. This isn’t free. Not all stations are Ad-free, even paying for Premium. I want to shut it off. Now, they’re directing I go to my ITunes account to stop the auto billing. But, there’s no way to do that from my iPhone. Is this more of Apple abandoning it’s users by playing Bait and Switch? You know Apple is getting their cut of the monthly premium fee. Shame on you company executives. I can just hear them responding “Did you read the fine print before we pushed you off the cliff?”
What once was...
by sonofwolf1 on 2018/02/17 18:14
Unfortunately, the tune in app no longer operates free from many commercial interferences — I find local (Chicago) AM radio to be worse... I got the app to listen to WBEZ 91.5 NPR. What’s truly odd is that the early versions operated mostly without glitches, whereas now it’s fraught with them, ie unexpected channel changes etc. And this is all totally weird because one would think later versions would’ve attended to glitches. No, it’s not my device(s) either. Another annoyance is the pay to listen “major” sports airings, which I doubt anyone actually pays to listen to... Instead tune in tunes out local coverage. Thanks
Won’t refund
by Firsttimewishbuyer on 2019/04/02 19:43
I signed up for the free trial trying to listen to an interview my daughter was participating in in my home town while I was out of town and so couldn’t pick up the radio station signal. I googled the radio station and it said I would be able to listen to the radio station on the TuneIn App. I downloaded it for free, but said I had to subscribe to listen. Hence, I signed up for the free trial. However, I wasn’t able to listen to her interview because after I had signed up, it said it had no live feeds from the radio station I needed. I canceled it today, being one week later. They had already billed me the $9.99 for the month even though I did not use the app AT ALL and canceled it before the free trial ended! You should NOT have to cancel a free trial subscription 24 hours before the free trial ends to avoid being charged the monthly renewel fee. Not Cool!!!
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
v12 broke the playback controls
by wily ludo on 2017/10/19 02:40
I use the Zoomed display setting on my iPhone. Since v12.0 of this app was released, the playback controls have been overlayed with the playback progress bar, making the controls difficult to activate. When you touch them, usually nothing happens. The menu containing access to sleep timer is particularly difficult to activate. If I change my phone’s display settings, the app works fine. But I am not changing a global preference to accommodate one app’s design oversight. I have tried numerous times to report this bug via tunein support but it’s as if the reps don’t use the app, as they *always* say they don’t understand what I’m describing, and they have never escalated my reports to the engineers who would understand. I have used TuneIn apps for many years on many phones. Today I am trying alternatives. Goodbye tunein.
