DARK MODE

Excellent app, I just want to know if you are working on to make the app dark mode friendly and match my device settings.
Great and simple
by JeffsFort on 2019/10/20 00:12
A straight forward streaming app that is great in it’s free version but will make you want to give something back. I downloaded this hoping to listen to a DJ I used to work with who lives out of my area. This app allows me to listen in every week now while I’m commuting home from work. Worth every penny I chose to spend on it and then some!

Need to fix the dead air
by applekrate68 on 2019/09/30 20:26
Purchased the premium version. Still getting annoying 5 to 10 seconds of dead air interruption every few minutes. Buffering problem?? Other music streaming apps don’t have this issue. Please fix. Makes it almost useless. More details.... All stations: JFRC Oldies 104 Retro 70’s 80’s 90’s Wifi is fine only while driving in car using cell service. UPDATE 09/17/2019. Found the dead air delay related to using the app on the Apple Watch. Phone to watch to blue tooth in car will result in random 5 seconds of dead air no music while driving. Phone to blue tooth car device no issues. Please focus your research and bug fixes with the Apple Watch in the mix. Update 09/24/2019 Turns out Apple Watch not part of the problem. Stations still cut out while driving around in car without Apple Watch running app. Been using 2 other radio streaming apps and never have this issue. So it’s this app thats causing the music to cut out every few minutes. Listening at work and not in car using cell data plan. Still cuts out. Checked with at&t not their problem.
Stops playing
by bowbow81 on 2019/09/30 17:05
I first downloaded this app last week and it was fine. I was able to lock my phone and put in my pocket and let the station play. Now today, when I lock the screen, the app cuts off.
Great App But....
by SteveNflorida on 2019/09/30 15:20
My experience is this, I can be listening to talk radio and during the playback my phone will spontaneously reset for no reason. When it reboots and I connect to my selection again after about 15-20 minutes it will once again reset. ATT says there is no network problem, Apple says there is nothing wrong with my phone. They both pointed me toward the developer. Balls in your court...
BS
by ljlute on 2019/09/29 23:14
After listening to my station for 15-20 mins all of a sudden it stops. “Error”. It now wants me to upgrade to a paid subscription. Yes it is a very “SIMPLE” radio. PAY FOR IT & it works. What a bunch of BS.

I use this app while in the car and it’s great, I can change stations with the steering wheel controls. The only thing that would be great would be the ability to add custom stations, there is one station that I listen to that it’s not in the app, this takes away one star, other than that ir’s a great app.

SIMPLE RADIO IS HEAVEN ☀️
by "STEVIE D" the Original One on 2019/08/30 11:52
Hello Earthlings, I grew up in Bergen County (New Jersey) and worked in New York City for most of my adult life. I guess I took it for granted, having excellent radio reception all those years. Well ... now I live in Ocean County (NJ) near the “Jersey Shore” but I’m on “The Wrong Side of the Parkway” which essentially is where people at the end of their rope, or retirees come to bask in ignorance, lack of culture, while they wait to die. Pretty harsh, but trust me, there’s many nice people, but no diversity, and many lack intelligence, especially the doctors. Simple radio has connected me to the world, and opened my ears and heart and soul to great programs from WNYC - such as “On Being” hosted by Krista Tippett( Which has saved my life) , great jazz from WBGO & WKCR, and excellent salsa and latin music from all over the world. Sitting at my Mac, I dislike listening to internet radio, because it seems unnatural, but with Simple Radio on my iPhone (yes, I never thought I’d get one) it feels more organic, as if I’m actually receiving radio, over the air, which has a romantic side to it for me. I vividly remember as a teenager waiting with my reel to reel tape recorder for Allison Steele “The Nightbird” on WNEW, and I’d record her unique opening few minutes of every show I listened to, if I was home. She had the sexiest voice on the air, and to this day, I’ve avoided googling her to see her photograph, only because she made my imagination so vivid, like reading a great book (which I can’t do anymore) sometimes, it’s best not to see the film, and leave your unspoiled memories to be 100% pure, and your own - not what someone else’s vision is. I was a commercial photographer, but should have been a musician. Anyway, thank you Simple Radio, for adding to my few reasons to live in this polluted overly white barren wasteland. Please excuse any typo’s as my phone changes words on me. There is a wealth of greatness in the world ... for those discouraged or depressed individuals, use simple radio, and let the world’s goodness put light into your darkness. Avoid network news. Who needs to watch close ups of train wrecks from morning till night ? Thank you again Simple Radio for saving my life. ☀️

Love ! But ...
by MarcusJerrell on 2018/04/08 14:00
Absolutely love this app! The ads weren’t a major deal but I still paid extra just because I love the app so much. I’ve told a lot of people on my campus about downloading the app cuz we have a campus radio show, Simple radio makes it easy for my friends that are outta state and not in town at the moment to still catch the show! So major game changer( we will do a commercial for you guys is you wanna sponsor 😌😂) BUT It would be dope to have timer/reminder for radio stations. Like if our. Show starts at 7pm then a reminder 30 min before( that the user can set) would send a notification that your favorite show is coming on soon. That’s all I can think of right now ! But love the app keep it up!
New listener
by ladyamp on 2019/07/11 02:50
I just discovered Simple Radio and was intrigued, so I downloaded the app. I’m confused about some things; mostly how I’m supposed to be able to access a very large number of different radio stations at any given time. I can currently get about 15, which unfortunately includes 2-3 not available I’d otherwise enjoy, and one of my favorite local ones that for some reason only shows up now and then. I’m very technology challenged, having trouble understanding the terminology and how to use it, so whenever I complain or request an answer to a question, the people I ask must dumb-down/simplify the answer and have patience when they do. I’m referring now to how, in some places in your app, you claim to offer for free lots of stations, but when I try to use Search no new offerings appear. Where’s the choice/variety? I know I have to put up with a lot, like the pop-up ads (even the audible ones, which are a problem to deal with if I’m away from my iPad for a moment) that keep most of Simple Radio free, but this “bait and switch” tactic RE: station offerings shouldn’t be one. So many personally modern choices have been made for us in the name of progress that Simple Radio should live up to its name and let the individual make up his own radio playlist from what’s available. This has been a very long review/question. Thank you for any help you can give as to how I could expand my playlist with stations that are really—and always—available.
Alarm please!!!
by erbug on 2018/01/08 00:16
Unless you just need a bedtime timer to shut the thing off stick with the free version. The ads aren't really that big of deal. I bought the app, $3.99, stupidly thinking that "timer" meant alarm. Wrong. You are basically paying for no ads and a bedtime shutoff timer. Where's the alarm? Was hoping to can my bedside alarm clock for this app. Urghhh. I'm going to look for an app that does what this app does but has an alarm. Sound quality is great. Never lost a station. The app even cast to my Google home easily. Felt the app was a little limited on local stations but I found every station in the Dallas area that I listen to 95% of the time. Did I mention the app has no alarm!?! Below is the developers reply. Thank you. After reading I’ve found out that an alarm won’t do much since Apple has not opened the alarm app to developers. This may or may not be true. Is so the feature is useless as I discovered from another app. Used the app all day never lost signal with station. Easy to use and loving it more each day. Changing star rating from three to four.
With respect:
by CentralORCoast on 2018/06/14 17:09
I appreciate this app, but it does have things that are really annoying. I understand the need for ads, if we don’t want to pay the membership fee. But, if I reject an ad from Facebook, Audible, etc., I have to continue to reject it multiple times in one single program, for days or even weeks. Evidently they just don’t get it: I’m not interested in that product. Furthermore, because of their badgering, I am more determined that I will never be interested. On another issue, The signal keeps dropping out constantly, and will not automatically reset. I have to go into the phone and re-start it every couple minutes. Literally — every couple minutes. It doesn’t matter what Wi-Fi I use at home or at work. We have a lot of high quality Wi-Fi, and my Wi-Fi at home is very good too. I end up having to use data on two new smart phones. Thank you for making this available, but a lot of times I think about switching to some other app.
Simple as can be
by WolfStyle on 2018/09/03 10:59
Very simple app. I bought the commercial free version because it lasts forever (unlike TuneIn that thinks that free radio streams rate a monthly fee). I appreciate the simplicity because when I want to listen to a radio station I don’t want to have to sort through menus. Not a bug free experience though. For some reason, the status bar will occasionally fail to appear when a station starts to play. Not a problem if listening on your phone but a showstopper if you are trying to cast to your home/car stereo. I actually came here to give a 1-star review and complain but at the last minute realized that if I tap the favorites button the status bar will appear. So... four-stars and a bug-report because I do like this very simple app and the developer seems responsive to feedback.
Doesn’t really broadcast what the station broadcasts
by green space leprechaun on 2019/07/28 20:29
So I very much like this app for when I want to listen to music, but all too often I find that when there is a commercial break, the app broadcasts its own adds. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but whenever I open the app, it takes the liberty of playing an ad segment, and then cuts into the middle of a song that was already playing during this so called commercial break. Another big disappointment is that if I want to tune into a baseball game on the radio, the app won’t be broadcast the game that I know is playing on that station. It just plays music that would normally be on the station. I understand that this would likely require extra deals with radio stations, but all I’m saying is that this app is not so versatile, and it doesn’t really do its job well. And if this bad review gets deleted again, I’ll be upset.
Great App!
by love this app in BIG D! on 2018/07/24 19:15
This app is AWESOME! You can listen to your favorite station across town or Elvis, the Beatles or the Stones from Moscow. All three are outstanding stations. If you want an ALARM, get the clock/alarm app. which has all the features you need to wake up. I don’t need a radio app to wake me up. Set your alarm, hit snooze and touch the screen for radio. If the goal is to wake up, being conscious enough to hit snooze and click on the radio is a good start. Of course, if this app would make coffee and set out my shoes, it would be perfect. I can listen to any station on earth (almost) and sync to the radio in my vehicle and listen to anything I want. Who needs Sirius XM? This is Satellite radio as it was meant to be.
Wanted to love it
by Maggiemay97 on 2017/12/29 15:44
I hate this app more and more every day. I listen to KTSA pretty much all day, but this makes it hard. It keeps cutting out for no reason, or dumb reasons like adjusting the volume on my iPhone. It also makes multi-tasking difficult. With IHeartRadio I can go into my email, Google, Facebook, etc. and the radio keeps playing as long as I don’t go into a video. This one now cuts out if I just go into Google! It is better now that you don’t have to listen to that annoying Kinetico ad that came on when you opened the app, but it’s annoying that when you tap to open the app you have to wait until an ad comes on screen and you have to then manually close that ad before the radio plays. I guess I’m just so used to things moving rapidly and don’t like that I can’t tap to open and walk away.
Works very well, but a few suggestions...
by esmith512 on 2019/03/29 17:39
This is a wonderful app! Fast, responsive, easy to use. Some annoyances, on the free version, some of the ads were videos, which is a contending audio source which sometimes disables the radio feed, then leaves it off. Make sure the ads don't make their own audio outputs. And the timer feature on the paid version is nice, but one nicer idea is a scheduling timer, something that selects favorite station at a given time, and allows the user to create a schedule of what audio streams automatically start. TVs have this feature, this app would benefit also. Great app, love it. Thank you for your great work over there.
Salvation an be found in a song
by medicinemsn101 on 2019/06/01 12:56
I cannot thank God enough for leading me to SOS radio. The songs the words of encouragement bring happiness and the light of Jesus Christ into my life everyday. I honestly believe that without the witness and testimony the staff and partners share in this ministry I would have never found the joy and happiness that only a close relationship with Jesus Christ can provide. Thank you and praise Jesus for all you do. By supporting this ministry with prayer and giving when I can I feel like the one leper looking for the other nine. I may not know you personally just know each staff member in this station has a special place in my heart.
A Great App with One Major Gap
by ReaderGeek on 2018/11/04 12:51
This is one of the best of the radio apps. Very easy to use, uncluttered, responsive and stable. There are others with more features, but none are easier or more reliable than this one. The gap is that it lacks a way to skip back. For listening to spoken word (NPR, Fox, news, talk radio), this is extremely vexing. A bit of noise, someone want to talk in person, a phone call, and the thread is lost. Nearly every other audio app offers 15s or 30s skip back and forward (within a limited buffer), but not this one. In consequence, as much as I love the simplicity of this one, for daily use I struggle with the complexity of TuneIn, because the skip back function is too valuable to live without.
Actually Does What It Says (and does it well)
by jeffb!!! on 2017/09/25 19:23
I normally put up with ads on free apps and rarely rate apps. While Simple Radio's free version is more obnoxiouly aggessive with its ads than most free apps, it does perform exceptionally well. On many apps (even the NPR Public Radio Tuner), my favorite (and sometimes obscure) stations aren't even listed. For a while I was using an Indian app that allowed me to enter the URL and port # of the streaming service, but these data were often hard to find. Everything I want is in this app's database and so far works as advertised.
Disappointed now
by cchfgytjnggu on 2019/02/20 16:10
Used to live this app, any radio station I wanted. But 2 days ago and after the last update it won’t connect and tells me that these stations are no longer available. I guess it’s time to move to another app. Update: Just tried it again and it’s back and I’m super happy about it. But not sure if it’s you it sends the reports to but when it says we will let you know when it’s back up and running then you should make that happen. Don’t know if it’s my phone or you just have no way of sending it but it’s just something that would be nice. Thank you for a great simple app. Not a whole lot of bells and whistles to deal with.

Got the free app and was disappointed. The way they display the ads is what ticks me off. With my car radio not working, I'm using this app. As you're listening, out of the blue it cuts off. So I reach for the phone and what's there? An ad. So you click the "X", or the "no thanks" to close the ad and continue listening, 10 minutes later, repeat... Very annoying when trying to drive and have to close all the ads just to listen to this app. In an hour drive this happens 3 to 5 times, always right before the part you want to hear it seems. Other apps the ads are there, but doesn't cut off what you are listening to just so you will acknowledge the ad! I'm deleting this one. It's not a "hands free" while driving friendly app. Someone is going to crash their car while acknowledging the ads.
Love it. Want to love it more.
by prof hf on 2017/08/20 03:57
Great app--easy to use, and it works well!! Sometimes, a station loads, but cuts out once or several times in the first few minutes, sometimes for more than a minute. But once that's over, the connection with the station is pretty secure. Why 4 stars, then, and not 5? I wish there were more stations available. I love news, classical music, bluegrass, and baseball (to start). Baseball is or seems to be completely unavailable. Really sad. More broadly, if you don't know the. CAll numbers of a station you're out of luck; they're not listed by offerings. Drat. Keep working on it, guys---this is a keeper. Just needs tweaking.
Good, but ads make the free version unusable
by PeterHinSF on 2017/11/26 04:04
Others have pointed out many good aspects of this app. I will only add this: The free version is not usable unless you're okay with ads popping up every time you change stations or every few taps as you search for new ones. Nothing is free, and I'm happy to pay for apps whether it's with reasonable ads or via an upgrade fee. But wow! As I explored this app the same ad kept popping up over and over and over and over, and I got more and more ticked off. I'd rather upgrade because I love the app and I want to support the app developer, not because the ads harass me into it, a la Pandora. That just makes me leave. My 2 cents.
Very nice app!
by Walker-Person5922 on 2017/09/01 00:19
On my car radio I was having trouble with my reception in regard to a jazz station I had found recently. As I got closer to home the reception got worse. So I decided to do a search on this station with the idea that Instead of depending on my automobile receiver to listen to this station, maybe I could just stream it directly from the station via my phone. But when I did the search and went to the jazz station website, they recommended this app for streaming. And I'm glad they did!
Last morning with radio DJ - wouldn’t connect
by Enterprise018 on 2018/11/15 13:35
I am so sorry to be that person but I was really disappointed this morning when the station wouldn’t connect. After nearly 50 years, the morning show DJ of 92.1 wdla is retiring after his show today. I was so excited when I saw you streamed the show, but after multiple attempts in the app and browser versions, it won’t connect. I was really looking forward to hearing his last show today. I know you are very busy, I was just disappointed today, especially after seeing all the great reviews it has. I also tried another station, and while it connected, nothing came through. This definitely could have been the station itself but it was frustrating.
Ads
by xgh on 2017/12/12 15:20
This is an app you'll pay for rather than put up with their obnoxious approach at shoving ads in your face. It's pretty much the same across all radio apps which appear to exist solely to collect on clicks. Compounding it for me was the ads were from ambulance chasing lawyers. They make me puke. I trashed the app after 3 ads got served up within less than my first 2 minutes with the app. Just a thought: Make sure you're paying because you want to use the app rather than get rid of the obnoxious ads. I've found with radio apps the basic app is nothing special and not worth any money (it's free in the music app and that one has a better interface and more functionality).
app lost the ability to run in the background
by t7hoang on 2019/01/14 17:19
I have been using this app for a while now, and I like it that I can listen to music around the world on it. Another reason I like is because I can play this app on the background while I browse the net or facebook. I also often lets music play on this app while I work. Today, it lost this capability. If i let my ipad idle and the screen goes black, the music shuts off; or if I use another app, the music also shuts off. This app demands the screen to be on all the time to work, which destroys the purpose of "radio" for me. I guess it is time to go back to Pandora or find another radio app. It is a pity since I really like this app.
My opinion
by Dayjahvou12 on 2017/11/26 05:24
You guys are doing a great job making our Yoruba language and songs to be heard where I am, I am about 5300 mikes away from home but I still feel I’m home. Thank you once again for this. But I have a suggestion. You play more of Sunny Ade’s song and even it is very repetitive, which makes me turn off the app at times when I’ve heard a song over and over again. You do Fela’s songs and some other ones, I will commend you on that. But Please also play music from other legends like Orlando Owoh, Ebenezer Obey etc. Thank you so much. God bless you all.
Most used app
by CaresMargs on 2018/09/09 13:57
I LOVE THIS APP. I moved away from home a few years ago and use this app every morning to listen to my hometown NPR station to hear both national programs and my local news. I’ve NEVER had an issue with it and have used it while traveling abroad. It keeps me connected to what’s going on at home even when I’m thousands of miles away. The on screen ads aren’t disruptive and I can switch between my favorite alt rock station (X102.9) to pop hits station (95.1 WAPE) easily using the favorites screen.
Nice media tool, but lacks functionality
by Sad Angela on 2017/08/08 10:25
This is a very useful app but when you have lots of favorite radio stations around the world, of different genres, and in different countries/languages, a way to categorize them is essential. This app doesn't provide that. All favorite stations get lumped into one huge list of favorites. Then finding the station you need is tedious and rather painful each time--ugh. Hence, my 3-star rating. I hope the developers fine tune this much needed requirement.
PLEASE auto-dismiss the Ads!
by Mil_Mascaras on 2018/05/24 18:16
The app works exactly as hoped, easy to find stations, Favorite them, and re-arrange them in custom list order. BUT!.... The Ads NEVER auto-dismiss! PLEASE AUTO-DISMISS THEM AFTER 1 MINUTE! The Ad will stay up for hours unless you tap a tiny "X" in the top corner. If a full screen ad pops up and takes up 100% of the display, it will stay up snd never never leave, unless you take your eyes off the road when driving, and tap your finger on the tiniest "X" imaginable. And careful, if your finger touches any other part of the ad, you will probably inadvertently launch the advertisers website. The Developer claims that is part of their "ad experience".. I doubt advertisers specifically request that their ad never disappears for over an hour unless a driver takes eyes off road to touch screen. WATCH OUT! I almost crashed into a Big Truck because I neededto touch a popup ad that hijacked my screen! CRASH BOOM AHHHHHH!
I USE TO LOVE IT
by Stacey_S1975 on 2019/04/04 14:14
When I’m going to sleep I like to listen to Classical music & This App gives me a Huge Variety from ALL OVER THE WORLD to do so And When I wake up I can’t wait to get into my car so I can hear my favorite Radio Talk show The Roula & Ryan Show On KRBE in HoustonTX With this app I am able to Wake up and start listening to them as I’m getting ready and when I get out of my car I don’t have to Miss anything Bcz I can keep listening BUT THIS MORNING TO MY HORROR 😂 My radio station was no longer on this App! I don’t know what has happened but I’m hoping it can be fixed soon!
You still need Internet.
by SharpAsRain on 2018/06/29 23:43
I hit that rough patch at the end of the month when you run out of data and thought I could use Simple Radio to listen to music since FM stations are air stream. Turns out it uses very little data but still uses some. When waiting for buffering I can listen to the first 20-30 seconds of a song, then it stops until the next bit of data comes in. Other than that, I was really happy with the variety and quality of radio stations available locally, nationally, and internationally.
Jerry rigged
by tattoo jerry on 2017/12/01 02:32
As an “Over The Road”(long haul) trucker, I found myslf reaching to scan the trucks radio for a new station every 15-20 minutes because im losing the signal while diving. The rocky mountains and desert areas can be the worst. But Not since my sister installed simple radio’s app for me on my Iphone. Ft. Wayne, IN has the bear and now I do too. Everywhere. Anytime. Thank you for that. Because she also educated me on what an app is. And saved me from spending too much on CD’s. Just try it. And get out my way...
FM Radio On the iPhone!
by Stupistu on 2018/12/04 06:04
I really like the ability to listen to radio on the iPhone. I know there are other apps out there, but they did not have the specific station I was looking for, and this app did. I was so happy when I found this out! That said, I do have a request. Is it possible for the app to show what song is playing on the radio at the time. That would be a useful feature, so that if I like a song I heard while using this app, I can look it up and listen to it! Thanks for taking the time to read this review!
Window to the world
by Magster007 on 2019/04/06 14:54
I really appreciate having this kind of app available to me. I sometimes complain about the digital world but there are many things that are so wonderful. Simply radio helps me feel less isolated. I’m able to hear what is going on all around the country and the world. I learn things I didn’t know about, I hear music I would’ve never known existed. It helps me to feel a part of the world around me. thank you for being there!!
Great Radio App!
by Estel2357 on 2017/08/18 10:43
I have used other internet radio streaming apps, but have deleted them from my phone since discovering Simple Radio. I am amazed that there is no lag or skips in the streaming, something that I had found problematic with other apps. My only suggestion is the addition of an alarm feature. It's great that they have an option to fall asleep to you favorite station, but it would be great to also wake to it as an alarm clock.
Great player but not CarPlay ready
by thumo on 2018/02/24 22:09
I have been looking for a simple and efficient internet radio app and Simple Radio checks all boxes. You’d probably want to pay the $3.99 to get rid of the adds. A couple limitations though... - App doesn’t show in CarPlay, I hope CarPlay compatibility will be added soon. - On the iPhone version, there is no way to route de audio output to different devices (AirPods, HomePod, etc...), you have to do that through iOS Control Center. On the iPad version, a button is provided to choose audio routing.
Good alt to tune-in radio
by jon's mobile device on 2017/10/16 20:09
ads that take over screen at each new station are how free version is supported. If a user gets a free online service the advertisers are the real customer and the users are actually a targeted audience. First found Simple Radio after driving through SW Virginia Oct 2015 and hearing WVTF 1260 am NPR affiliate over the air. Now I can listen with ISP as I haven't been in terrestrial reception range since. Good alternative to I heart radio too except for stations I heart media(Clear Channel Media) owns and monopolizes internet streaming of their stations.
Excellent App! I have it for years but I need back the Recording feature
by Mr James musik PR on 2018/10/08 00:49
I work in a press office in my town and I use this app a lot. I have it maybe 3 years going to 4. It's an excellent app. I recommended to everyone that I know who does the same job I do. Last week I had an accident with my phone and today I got my replacement. I downloaded the App from the cloud and I'm having a little trouble with the new version. Since I can't recover my information from the old phone because it's broken. I had this App with the recording button in a upgrade version that I bought at that time and when I downloaded today it didn't bring me the recording button. Honestly I need it, because it's an excellent tool for monitoring. Please help me with this. I will appreciate
Vulgar trash ads !
by Pferguson on 2018/04/16 07:26
Loaded this app to use and first day got an e-mail in my junk box from one of my personal contacts. When I opened it and wondering why it was in the junk box it linked me to a site called Bang Bros . Com. A porn web site ! Filth and trash. When I went on the developer site and history to look further into this seemingly innocent app, I was still frustrated why anyone would rate this for age 4+ yrs. of age. REALLY ? This app should be cancelled and Banned as well as the developer. As I exited out of the site The porn site came up AGAIN ! I deleted this app and will not recommend or download anything else in our home from this developer until it is cleaned up and reviewed by APPLE FIRST !
I love my Simple Radio App
by Adelles Grandma on 2019/06/16 02:53
The best part of my Simple Radio App is that I can listen to stations that keep me in touch with where I’ve grown up. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico so my number favorite station is Zeta 93 out of San Juan. Then when I was older we moved to Boston so I also listen to Magic 106.7 out of Boston a lot. I listen to other stations once in a while as well. I do a lot of quilting it relaxes me and immediately Zeta 93 comes on while I’m sewing. It’s like my own Zen Garden.
App is great but ads start again on new device
by Junietto on 2018/09/13 13:50
The app is great and though there are lots of stations that don’t work, there are some that are solid. I just got a new phone and the biggest issue is that the ads come back after downloading from my App Store account. Would like to know how to avoid paying each time I get a new device. My phone broke and I have a loaner device now but I’m getting a new one next month so I don’t want to pay 2 more times for the same app.
Wish for more ststions
by Susan for ABQ on 2018/01/30 13:55
I was delighted to discover Simple Radio only a few weeks ago. It’s great and I am using it to listen to public radio shows in Albuquerque New Mexico, But only in the morning. That is the only time we have them. But the same station does have a rather extensive afternoon lineup only available on HD or in my car-which is a place I rarely am. Wish you were able to access those.
My go-to app got online streaming
by Olivedrabjunkie on 2017/07/31 04:31
Thus simple app is quite simply THE BEST radio streaming app yet! I live in a very rural area in the fringes of two major markets and all that programming caters to those cities. I listen to a lot of talk radio and my favorite stations are too far off for terrestrial reception but this app puts them within my reach. I love this app, simple, effective and it just works! I've got it loaded on my every Apple device. It's by far, the best!
Great app, as advertised!
by From Gregory on 2018/02/28 13:19
Sometimes you miss certain FM and AM stations u used to listen to but just aren’t close enough anymore to get them, well this fixes that problem. It has a ton of stations and more than I would ever be able to listen to. I have never had a problem using this app and use it daily; have been using for about a year now. Has great favorites option and more. Try it out.
One thing missing
by Mistik101 on 2018/08/05 01:06
I really love this app. I just started today and I love it. But there is just ONE thing missing. In some cars when you have the radio on, it tells you the name of the song that is playing. There has been a lot of times when a song came but I didn’t know the name of it and it sucked. So one thing I would like to see is to tell us the name of the song that is currently playing. I know it may be hard but that is just my suggestion.
I love music 🎼
by Beach Girl 🌺🏝💖 on 2019/07/03 13:38
This app is great because the music is free so if you don’t like something you aren’t stuck with paying for it. I also love that you ca listen to the stations everywhere! That feature lets me be able to listen to my local stations when I’m traveling or listen to stations from different countries( feel very cultural because of it). If you are on the fence I highly recommend it! Get this app!!!!!
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Steep price
by MazeJack on 2018/03/16 16:26
The app itself is nice and works as it should. The reason I gave one star it is for the steep price to remove obnoxious adds. The part that I didn’t really like it is the fact that I can’t share my purchase with my family members on the shared purchase account and only one device can use the full version. Any other download is making me to pay $3.99 for in app purchase again to remove the adds. Pretty lame. Developer has no idea what I’m talking about in their response so I’m correct they overcharging for this heavily. Get rid off in app purchase and create separate pro version of this app to download then the purchase can be shared.
Excellent App 👍
by Wyoming J on 2018/04/09 16:38
I'd been using Tunein Radio for years; however, as it became more bloated over time, I finally deleted it and switched to Simple Radio. This app has access to all the stations I want to listen to, doesn't have the buffering problems, and other issues, that I had with the other app. As I found the ads in the free version annoying, I upgraded to the paid app.
I hadn’t noticed how much I use this app.
by Herbcat on 2018/01/11 21:33
I realized that this replaced the KPCC app for me at work. Their stream interrupts and drops a lot, but this is the only app that automatically reconnects. Not the developers fault, it happens with all streams and apps. I really couldn’t come up with a reason to hate it or avoid paying the $4, so thanks for the lightweight and completely unobtrusive app that is the most used and least noticed on my iPad.
KANW 89.1 FM Radio
by Not enjoying update on 2019/07/03 01:30
I have enjoyed listening to KANW since the 1980s. New Mexico is my home and where my heart is. I love listening to New Mexico music even though I don't speak Spanish fluently I understand because I was spoken to in Spanish but never required to respond in Spanish. I appreciate that the English language is spoken by the announcers but the music is in Spanish. Thank you for many years of enjoyment of New Mexico music. I love it!
Simple Radio
by FaithNGod on 2018/08/27 02:30
Simple Radio is the only way to connect to those out of state Radio stations that I love to listen to I just love his app wish I could have thought of it back in 2012 but it is what it is I’m just glad it’s out and i have it now I’m loving all of the newer upgrades it has gone through since I downloaded it back n 2014! Been telling my friends about it every since!
Easy and quick to listen to what you want!
by youcandohardthings on 2017/08/01 15:30
The steps to listen to your savwd station are as follows: 1. Open the app 2. Select the station you want to listen to. Within 5 seconds I'm listening. I've has radio apps that have so many adds, menus, rating systems, and other inhibiting features that I never gave a crap about. Simple Radio doesn't have any of that. Is like a breath of fresh air!
Great station.
by EllieKID57 on 2018/09/05 12:22
I’m so happy to listening every day. Mornings are so much fun and full of great news and people. Practically, every hour is very educational, and I appreciate the hard working people who are giving as very important and informational facts. It’s great to have a local radio station covering traffic, weather, news and great team to listen to. I thank you so much for letting us enjoy your programs. Regards, Ellie

Excellent app, I just want to know if you are working on to make the app dark mode friendly and match my device settings.
Great and simple

A straight forward streaming app that is great in it’s free version but will make you want to give something back. I downloaded this hoping to listen to a DJ I used to work with who lives out of my area. This app allows me to listen in every week now while I’m commuting home from work. Worth every penny I chose to spend on it and then some!

Need to fix the dead air
by applekrate68 on 2019/09/30 20:26
Purchased the premium version. Still getting annoying 5 to 10 seconds of dead air interruption every few minutes. Buffering problem?? Other music streaming apps don’t have this issue. Please fix. Makes it almost useless. More details.... All stations: JFRC Oldies 104 Retro 70’s 80’s 90’s Wifi is fine only while driving in car using cell service. UPDATE 09/17/2019. Found the dead air delay related to using the app on the Apple Watch. Phone to watch to blue tooth in car will result in random 5 seconds of dead air no music while driving. Phone to blue tooth car device no issues. Please focus your research and bug fixes with the Apple Watch in the mix. Update 09/24/2019 Turns out Apple Watch not part of the problem. Stations still cut out while driving around in car without Apple Watch running app. Been using 2 other radio streaming apps and never have this issue. So it’s this app thats causing the music to cut out every few minutes. Listening at work and not in car using cell data plan. Still cuts out. Checked with at&t not their problem.
Stops playing
by bowbow81 on 2019/09/30 17:05
I first downloaded this app last week and it was fine. I was able to lock my phone and put in my pocket and let the station play. Now today, when I lock the screen, the app cuts off.
Great App But....
by SteveNflorida on 2019/09/30 15:20
My experience is this, I can be listening to talk radio and during the playback my phone will spontaneously reset for no reason. When it reboots and I connect to my selection again after about 15-20 minutes it will once again reset. ATT says there is no network problem, Apple says there is nothing wrong with my phone. They both pointed me toward the developer. Balls in your court...
BS
by ljlute on 2019/09/29 23:14
After listening to my station for 15-20 mins all of a sudden it stops. “Error”. It now wants me to upgrade to a paid subscription. Yes it is a very “SIMPLE” radio. PAY FOR IT & it works. What a bunch of BS.

SIMPLE RADIO IS HEAVEN ☀️
by "STEVIE D" the Original One on 2019/08/30 11:52
Hello Earthlings, I grew up in Bergen County (New Jersey) and worked in New York City for most of my adult life. I guess I took it for granted, having excellent radio reception all those years. Well ... now I live in Ocean County (NJ) near the “Jersey Shore” but I’m on “The Wrong Side of the Parkway” which essentially is where people at the end of their rope, or retirees come to bask in ignorance, lack of culture, while they wait to die. Pretty harsh, but trust me, there’s many nice people, but no diversity, and many lack intelligence, especially the doctors. Simple radio has connected me to the world, and opened my ears and heart and soul to great programs from WNYC - such as “On Being” hosted by Krista Tippett( Which has saved my life) , great jazz from WBGO & WKCR, and excellent salsa and latin music from all over the world. Sitting at my Mac, I dislike listening to internet radio, because it seems unnatural, but with Simple Radio on my iPhone (yes, I never thought I’d get one) it feels more organic, as if I’m actually receiving radio, over the air, which has a romantic side to it for me. I vividly remember as a teenager waiting with my reel to reel tape recorder for Allison Steele “The Nightbird” on WNEW, and I’d record her unique opening few minutes of every show I listened to, if I was home. She had the sexiest voice on the air, and to this day, I’ve avoided googling her to see her photograph, only because she made my imagination so vivid, like reading a great book (which I can’t do anymore) sometimes, it’s best not to see the film, and leave your unspoiled memories to be 100% pure, and your own - not what someone else’s vision is. I was a commercial photographer, but should have been a musician. Anyway, thank you Simple Radio, for adding to my few reasons to live in this polluted overly white barren wasteland. Please excuse any typo’s as my phone changes words on me. There is a wealth of greatness in the world ... for those discouraged or depressed individuals, use simple radio, and let the world’s goodness put light into your darkness. Avoid network news. Who needs to watch close ups of train wrecks from morning till night ? Thank you again Simple Radio for saving my life. ☀️

Love ! But ...
by MarcusJerrell on 2018/04/08 14:00
Absolutely love this app! The ads weren’t a major deal but I still paid extra just because I love the app so much. I’ve told a lot of people on my campus about downloading the app cuz we have a campus radio show, Simple radio makes it easy for my friends that are outta state and not in town at the moment to still catch the show! So major game changer( we will do a commercial for you guys is you wanna sponsor 😌😂) BUT It would be dope to have timer/reminder for radio stations. Like if our. Show starts at 7pm then a reminder 30 min before( that the user can set) would send a notification that your favorite show is coming on soon. That’s all I can think of right now ! But love the app keep it up!
New listener
by ladyamp on 2019/07/11 02:50
I just discovered Simple Radio and was intrigued, so I downloaded the app. I’m confused about some things; mostly how I’m supposed to be able to access a very large number of different radio stations at any given time. I can currently get about 15, which unfortunately includes 2-3 not available I’d otherwise enjoy, and one of my favorite local ones that for some reason only shows up now and then. I’m very technology challenged, having trouble understanding the terminology and how to use it, so whenever I complain or request an answer to a question, the people I ask must dumb-down/simplify the answer and have patience when they do. I’m referring now to how, in some places in your app, you claim to offer for free lots of stations, but when I try to use Search no new offerings appear. Where’s the choice/variety? I know I have to put up with a lot, like the pop-up ads (even the audible ones, which are a problem to deal with if I’m away from my iPad for a moment) that keep most of Simple Radio free, but this “bait and switch” tactic RE: station offerings shouldn’t be one. So many personally modern choices have been made for us in the name of progress that Simple Radio should live up to its name and let the individual make up his own radio playlist from what’s available. This has been a very long review/question. Thank you for any help you can give as to how I could expand my playlist with stations that are really—and always—available.
Alarm please!!!
by erbug on 2018/01/08 00:16
Unless you just need a bedtime timer to shut the thing off stick with the free version. The ads aren't really that big of deal. I bought the app, $3.99, stupidly thinking that "timer" meant alarm. Wrong. You are basically paying for no ads and a bedtime shutoff timer. Where's the alarm? Was hoping to can my bedside alarm clock for this app. Urghhh. I'm going to look for an app that does what this app does but has an alarm. Sound quality is great. Never lost a station. The app even cast to my Google home easily. Felt the app was a little limited on local stations but I found every station in the Dallas area that I listen to 95% of the time. Did I mention the app has no alarm!?! Below is the developers reply. Thank you. After reading I’ve found out that an alarm won’t do much since Apple has not opened the alarm app to developers. This may or may not be true. Is so the feature is useless as I discovered from another app. Used the app all day never lost signal with station. Easy to use and loving it more each day. Changing star rating from three to four.
With respect:
by CentralORCoast on 2018/06/14 17:09
I appreciate this app, but it does have things that are really annoying. I understand the need for ads, if we don’t want to pay the membership fee. But, if I reject an ad from Facebook, Audible, etc., I have to continue to reject it multiple times in one single program, for days or even weeks. Evidently they just don’t get it: I’m not interested in that product. Furthermore, because of their badgering, I am more determined that I will never be interested. On another issue, The signal keeps dropping out constantly, and will not automatically reset. I have to go into the phone and re-start it every couple minutes. Literally — every couple minutes. It doesn’t matter what Wi-Fi I use at home or at work. We have a lot of high quality Wi-Fi, and my Wi-Fi at home is very good too. I end up having to use data on two new smart phones. Thank you for making this available, but a lot of times I think about switching to some other app.
Simple as can be
by WolfStyle on 2018/09/03 10:59
Very simple app. I bought the commercial free version because it lasts forever (unlike TuneIn that thinks that free radio streams rate a monthly fee). I appreciate the simplicity because when I want to listen to a radio station I don’t want to have to sort through menus. Not a bug free experience though. For some reason, the status bar will occasionally fail to appear when a station starts to play. Not a problem if listening on your phone but a showstopper if you are trying to cast to your home/car stereo. I actually came here to give a 1-star review and complain but at the last minute realized that if I tap the favorites button the status bar will appear. So... four-stars and a bug-report because I do like this very simple app and the developer seems responsive to feedback.
Doesn’t really broadcast what the station broadcasts
by green space leprechaun on 2019/07/28 20:29
So I very much like this app for when I want to listen to music, but all too often I find that when there is a commercial break, the app broadcasts its own adds. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but whenever I open the app, it takes the liberty of playing an ad segment, and then cuts into the middle of a song that was already playing during this so called commercial break. Another big disappointment is that if I want to tune into a baseball game on the radio, the app won’t be broadcast the game that I know is playing on that station. It just plays music that would normally be on the station. I understand that this would likely require extra deals with radio stations, but all I’m saying is that this app is not so versatile, and it doesn’t really do its job well. And if this bad review gets deleted again, I’ll be upset.
Great App!
by love this app in BIG D! on 2018/07/24 19:15
This app is AWESOME! You can listen to your favorite station across town or Elvis, the Beatles or the Stones from Moscow. All three are outstanding stations. If you want an ALARM, get the clock/alarm app. which has all the features you need to wake up. I don’t need a radio app to wake me up. Set your alarm, hit snooze and touch the screen for radio. If the goal is to wake up, being conscious enough to hit snooze and click on the radio is a good start. Of course, if this app would make coffee and set out my shoes, it would be perfect. I can listen to any station on earth (almost) and sync to the radio in my vehicle and listen to anything I want. Who needs Sirius XM? This is Satellite radio as it was meant to be.
Wanted to love it
by Maggiemay97 on 2017/12/29 15:44
I hate this app more and more every day. I listen to KTSA pretty much all day, but this makes it hard. It keeps cutting out for no reason, or dumb reasons like adjusting the volume on my iPhone. It also makes multi-tasking difficult. With IHeartRadio I can go into my email, Google, Facebook, etc. and the radio keeps playing as long as I don’t go into a video. This one now cuts out if I just go into Google! It is better now that you don’t have to listen to that annoying Kinetico ad that came on when you opened the app, but it’s annoying that when you tap to open the app you have to wait until an ad comes on screen and you have to then manually close that ad before the radio plays. I guess I’m just so used to things moving rapidly and don’t like that I can’t tap to open and walk away.
Works very well, but a few suggestions...
by esmith512 on 2019/03/29 17:39
This is a wonderful app! Fast, responsive, easy to use. Some annoyances, on the free version, some of the ads were videos, which is a contending audio source which sometimes disables the radio feed, then leaves it off. Make sure the ads don't make their own audio outputs. And the timer feature on the paid version is nice, but one nicer idea is a scheduling timer, something that selects favorite station at a given time, and allows the user to create a schedule of what audio streams automatically start. TVs have this feature, this app would benefit also. Great app, love it. Thank you for your great work over there.
Salvation an be found in a song
by medicinemsn101 on 2019/06/01 12:56
I cannot thank God enough for leading me to SOS radio. The songs the words of encouragement bring happiness and the light of Jesus Christ into my life everyday. I honestly believe that without the witness and testimony the staff and partners share in this ministry I would have never found the joy and happiness that only a close relationship with Jesus Christ can provide. Thank you and praise Jesus for all you do. By supporting this ministry with prayer and giving when I can I feel like the one leper looking for the other nine. I may not know you personally just know each staff member in this station has a special place in my heart.
A Great App with One Major Gap
by ReaderGeek on 2018/11/04 12:51
This is one of the best of the radio apps. Very easy to use, uncluttered, responsive and stable. There are others with more features, but none are easier or more reliable than this one. The gap is that it lacks a way to skip back. For listening to spoken word (NPR, Fox, news, talk radio), this is extremely vexing. A bit of noise, someone want to talk in person, a phone call, and the thread is lost. Nearly every other audio app offers 15s or 30s skip back and forward (within a limited buffer), but not this one. In consequence, as much as I love the simplicity of this one, for daily use I struggle with the complexity of TuneIn, because the skip back function is too valuable to live without.
Actually Does What It Says (and does it well)
by jeffb!!! on 2017/09/25 19:23
I normally put up with ads on free apps and rarely rate apps. While Simple Radio's free version is more obnoxiouly aggessive with its ads than most free apps, it does perform exceptionally well. On many apps (even the NPR Public Radio Tuner), my favorite (and sometimes obscure) stations aren't even listed. For a while I was using an Indian app that allowed me to enter the URL and port # of the streaming service, but these data were often hard to find. Everything I want is in this app's database and so far works as advertised.
Disappointed now
by cchfgytjnggu on 2019/02/20 16:10
Used to live this app, any radio station I wanted. But 2 days ago and after the last update it won’t connect and tells me that these stations are no longer available. I guess it’s time to move to another app. Update: Just tried it again and it’s back and I’m super happy about it. But not sure if it’s you it sends the reports to but when it says we will let you know when it’s back up and running then you should make that happen. Don’t know if it’s my phone or you just have no way of sending it but it’s just something that would be nice. Thank you for a great simple app. Not a whole lot of bells and whistles to deal with.

Got the free app and was disappointed. The way they display the ads is what ticks me off. With my car radio not working, I'm using this app. As you're listening, out of the blue it cuts off. So I reach for the phone and what's there? An ad. So you click the "X", or the "no thanks" to close the ad and continue listening, 10 minutes later, repeat... Very annoying when trying to drive and have to close all the ads just to listen to this app. In an hour drive this happens 3 to 5 times, always right before the part you want to hear it seems. Other apps the ads are there, but doesn't cut off what you are listening to just so you will acknowledge the ad! I'm deleting this one. It's not a "hands free" while driving friendly app. Someone is going to crash their car while acknowledging the ads.
Love it. Want to love it more.
by prof hf on 2017/08/20 03:57
Great app--easy to use, and it works well!! Sometimes, a station loads, but cuts out once or several times in the first few minutes, sometimes for more than a minute. But once that's over, the connection with the station is pretty secure. Why 4 stars, then, and not 5? I wish there were more stations available. I love news, classical music, bluegrass, and baseball (to start). Baseball is or seems to be completely unavailable. Really sad. More broadly, if you don't know the. CAll numbers of a station you're out of luck; they're not listed by offerings. Drat. Keep working on it, guys---this is a keeper. Just needs tweaking.
Good, but ads make the free version unusable
by PeterHinSF on 2017/11/26 04:04
Others have pointed out many good aspects of this app. I will only add this: The free version is not usable unless you're okay with ads popping up every time you change stations or every few taps as you search for new ones. Nothing is free, and I'm happy to pay for apps whether it's with reasonable ads or via an upgrade fee. But wow! As I explored this app the same ad kept popping up over and over and over and over, and I got more and more ticked off. I'd rather upgrade because I love the app and I want to support the app developer, not because the ads harass me into it, a la Pandora. That just makes me leave. My 2 cents.
Very nice app!
by Walker-Person5922 on 2017/09/01 00:19
On my car radio I was having trouble with my reception in regard to a jazz station I had found recently. As I got closer to home the reception got worse. So I decided to do a search on this station with the idea that Instead of depending on my automobile receiver to listen to this station, maybe I could just stream it directly from the station via my phone. But when I did the search and went to the jazz station website, they recommended this app for streaming. And I'm glad they did!
Last morning with radio DJ - wouldn’t connect
by Enterprise018 on 2018/11/15 13:35
I am so sorry to be that person but I was really disappointed this morning when the station wouldn’t connect. After nearly 50 years, the morning show DJ of 92.1 wdla is retiring after his show today. I was so excited when I saw you streamed the show, but after multiple attempts in the app and browser versions, it won’t connect. I was really looking forward to hearing his last show today. I know you are very busy, I was just disappointed today, especially after seeing all the great reviews it has. I also tried another station, and while it connected, nothing came through. This definitely could have been the station itself but it was frustrating.
Ads
by xgh on 2017/12/12 15:20
This is an app you'll pay for rather than put up with their obnoxious approach at shoving ads in your face. It's pretty much the same across all radio apps which appear to exist solely to collect on clicks. Compounding it for me was the ads were from ambulance chasing lawyers. They make me puke. I trashed the app after 3 ads got served up within less than my first 2 minutes with the app. Just a thought: Make sure you're paying because you want to use the app rather than get rid of the obnoxious ads. I've found with radio apps the basic app is nothing special and not worth any money (it's free in the music app and that one has a better interface and more functionality).
app lost the ability to run in the background
by t7hoang on 2019/01/14 17:19
I have been using this app for a while now, and I like it that I can listen to music around the world on it. Another reason I like is because I can play this app on the background while I browse the net or facebook. I also often lets music play on this app while I work. Today, it lost this capability. If i let my ipad idle and the screen goes black, the music shuts off; or if I use another app, the music also shuts off. This app demands the screen to be on all the time to work, which destroys the purpose of "radio" for me. I guess it is time to go back to Pandora or find another radio app. It is a pity since I really like this app.
My opinion
by Dayjahvou12 on 2017/11/26 05:24
You guys are doing a great job making our Yoruba language and songs to be heard where I am, I am about 5300 mikes away from home but I still feel I’m home. Thank you once again for this. But I have a suggestion. You play more of Sunny Ade’s song and even it is very repetitive, which makes me turn off the app at times when I’ve heard a song over and over again. You do Fela’s songs and some other ones, I will commend you on that. But Please also play music from other legends like Orlando Owoh, Ebenezer Obey etc. Thank you so much. God bless you all.
Most used app
by CaresMargs on 2018/09/09 13:57
I LOVE THIS APP. I moved away from home a few years ago and use this app every morning to listen to my hometown NPR station to hear both national programs and my local news. I’ve NEVER had an issue with it and have used it while traveling abroad. It keeps me connected to what’s going on at home even when I’m thousands of miles away. The on screen ads aren’t disruptive and I can switch between my favorite alt rock station (X102.9) to pop hits station (95.1 WAPE) easily using the favorites screen.
Nice media tool, but lacks functionality
by Sad Angela on 2017/08/08 10:25
This is a very useful app but when you have lots of favorite radio stations around the world, of different genres, and in different countries/languages, a way to categorize them is essential. This app doesn't provide that. All favorite stations get lumped into one huge list of favorites. Then finding the station you need is tedious and rather painful each time--ugh. Hence, my 3-star rating. I hope the developers fine tune this much needed requirement.
PLEASE auto-dismiss the Ads!
by Mil_Mascaras on 2018/05/24 18:16
The app works exactly as hoped, easy to find stations, Favorite them, and re-arrange them in custom list order. BUT!.... The Ads NEVER auto-dismiss! PLEASE AUTO-DISMISS THEM AFTER 1 MINUTE! The Ad will stay up for hours unless you tap a tiny "X" in the top corner. If a full screen ad pops up and takes up 100% of the display, it will stay up snd never never leave, unless you take your eyes off the road when driving, and tap your finger on the tiniest "X" imaginable. And careful, if your finger touches any other part of the ad, you will probably inadvertently launch the advertisers website. The Developer claims that is part of their "ad experience".. I doubt advertisers specifically request that their ad never disappears for over an hour unless a driver takes eyes off road to touch screen. WATCH OUT! I almost crashed into a Big Truck because I neededto touch a popup ad that hijacked my screen! CRASH BOOM AHHHHHH!
I USE TO LOVE IT
by Stacey_S1975 on 2019/04/04 14:14
When I’m going to sleep I like to listen to Classical music & This App gives me a Huge Variety from ALL OVER THE WORLD to do so And When I wake up I can’t wait to get into my car so I can hear my favorite Radio Talk show The Roula & Ryan Show On KRBE in HoustonTX With this app I am able to Wake up and start listening to them as I’m getting ready and when I get out of my car I don’t have to Miss anything Bcz I can keep listening BUT THIS MORNING TO MY HORROR 😂 My radio station was no longer on this App! I don’t know what has happened but I’m hoping it can be fixed soon!
You still need Internet.
by SharpAsRain on 2018/06/29 23:43
I hit that rough patch at the end of the month when you run out of data and thought I could use Simple Radio to listen to music since FM stations are air stream. Turns out it uses very little data but still uses some. When waiting for buffering I can listen to the first 20-30 seconds of a song, then it stops until the next bit of data comes in. Other than that, I was really happy with the variety and quality of radio stations available locally, nationally, and internationally.
Jerry rigged
by tattoo jerry on 2017/12/01 02:32
As an “Over The Road”(long haul) trucker, I found myslf reaching to scan the trucks radio for a new station every 15-20 minutes because im losing the signal while diving. The rocky mountains and desert areas can be the worst. But Not since my sister installed simple radio’s app for me on my Iphone. Ft. Wayne, IN has the bear and now I do too. Everywhere. Anytime. Thank you for that. Because she also educated me on what an app is. And saved me from spending too much on CD’s. Just try it. And get out my way...
FM Radio On the iPhone!
by Stupistu on 2018/12/04 06:04
I really like the ability to listen to radio on the iPhone. I know there are other apps out there, but they did not have the specific station I was looking for, and this app did. I was so happy when I found this out! That said, I do have a request. Is it possible for the app to show what song is playing on the radio at the time. That would be a useful feature, so that if I like a song I heard while using this app, I can look it up and listen to it! Thanks for taking the time to read this review!
Window to the world
by Magster007 on 2019/04/06 14:54
I really appreciate having this kind of app available to me. I sometimes complain about the digital world but there are many things that are so wonderful. Simply radio helps me feel less isolated. I’m able to hear what is going on all around the country and the world. I learn things I didn’t know about, I hear music I would’ve never known existed. It helps me to feel a part of the world around me. thank you for being there!!
Great Radio App!
by Estel2357 on 2017/08/18 10:43
I have used other internet radio streaming apps, but have deleted them from my phone since discovering Simple Radio. I am amazed that there is no lag or skips in the streaming, something that I had found problematic with other apps. My only suggestion is the addition of an alarm feature. It's great that they have an option to fall asleep to you favorite station, but it would be great to also wake to it as an alarm clock.
Great player but not CarPlay ready
by thumo on 2018/02/24 22:09
I have been looking for a simple and efficient internet radio app and Simple Radio checks all boxes. You’d probably want to pay the $3.99 to get rid of the adds. A couple limitations though... - App doesn’t show in CarPlay, I hope CarPlay compatibility will be added soon. - On the iPhone version, there is no way to route de audio output to different devices (AirPods, HomePod, etc...), you have to do that through iOS Control Center. On the iPad version, a button is provided to choose audio routing.
Good alt to tune-in radio
by jon's mobile device on 2017/10/16 20:09
ads that take over screen at each new station are how free version is supported. If a user gets a free online service the advertisers are the real customer and the users are actually a targeted audience. First found Simple Radio after driving through SW Virginia Oct 2015 and hearing WVTF 1260 am NPR affiliate over the air. Now I can listen with ISP as I haven't been in terrestrial reception range since. Good alternative to I heart radio too except for stations I heart media(Clear Channel Media) owns and monopolizes internet streaming of their stations.
Excellent App! I have it for years but I need back the Recording feature
by Mr James musik PR on 2018/10/08 00:49
I work in a press office in my town and I use this app a lot. I have it maybe 3 years going to 4. It's an excellent app. I recommended to everyone that I know who does the same job I do. Last week I had an accident with my phone and today I got my replacement. I downloaded the App from the cloud and I'm having a little trouble with the new version. Since I can't recover my information from the old phone because it's broken. I had this App with the recording button in a upgrade version that I bought at that time and when I downloaded today it didn't bring me the recording button. Honestly I need it, because it's an excellent tool for monitoring. Please help me with this. I will appreciate
Vulgar trash ads !
by Pferguson on 2018/04/16 07:26
Loaded this app to use and first day got an e-mail in my junk box from one of my personal contacts. When I opened it and wondering why it was in the junk box it linked me to a site called Bang Bros . Com. A porn web site ! Filth and trash. When I went on the developer site and history to look further into this seemingly innocent app, I was still frustrated why anyone would rate this for age 4+ yrs. of age. REALLY ? This app should be cancelled and Banned as well as the developer. As I exited out of the site The porn site came up AGAIN ! I deleted this app and will not recommend or download anything else in our home from this developer until it is cleaned up and reviewed by APPLE FIRST !
I love my Simple Radio App
by Adelles Grandma on 2019/06/16 02:53
The best part of my Simple Radio App is that I can listen to stations that keep me in touch with where I’ve grown up. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico so my number favorite station is Zeta 93 out of San Juan. Then when I was older we moved to Boston so I also listen to Magic 106.7 out of Boston a lot. I listen to other stations once in a while as well. I do a lot of quilting it relaxes me and immediately Zeta 93 comes on while I’m sewing. It’s like my own Zen Garden.
App is great but ads start again on new device
by Junietto on 2018/09/13 13:50
The app is great and though there are lots of stations that don’t work, there are some that are solid. I just got a new phone and the biggest issue is that the ads come back after downloading from my App Store account. Would like to know how to avoid paying each time I get a new device. My phone broke and I have a loaner device now but I’m getting a new one next month so I don’t want to pay 2 more times for the same app.
Wish for more ststions
by Susan for ABQ on 2018/01/30 13:55
I was delighted to discover Simple Radio only a few weeks ago. It’s great and I am using it to listen to public radio shows in Albuquerque New Mexico, But only in the morning. That is the only time we have them. But the same station does have a rather extensive afternoon lineup only available on HD or in my car-which is a place I rarely am. Wish you were able to access those.
My go-to app got online streaming
by Olivedrabjunkie on 2017/07/31 04:31
Thus simple app is quite simply THE BEST radio streaming app yet! I live in a very rural area in the fringes of two major markets and all that programming caters to those cities. I listen to a lot of talk radio and my favorite stations are too far off for terrestrial reception but this app puts them within my reach. I love this app, simple, effective and it just works! I've got it loaded on my every Apple device. It's by far, the best!
Great app, as advertised!
by From Gregory on 2018/02/28 13:19
Sometimes you miss certain FM and AM stations u used to listen to but just aren’t close enough anymore to get them, well this fixes that problem. It has a ton of stations and more than I would ever be able to listen to. I have never had a problem using this app and use it daily; have been using for about a year now. Has great favorites option and more. Try it out.
One thing missing
by Mistik101 on 2018/08/05 01:06
I really love this app. I just started today and I love it. But there is just ONE thing missing. In some cars when you have the radio on, it tells you the name of the song that is playing. There has been a lot of times when a song came but I didn’t know the name of it and it sucked. So one thing I would like to see is to tell us the name of the song that is currently playing. I know it may be hard but that is just my suggestion.
I love music 🎼
by Beach Girl 🌺🏝💖 on 2019/07/03 13:38
This app is great because the music is free so if you don’t like something you aren’t stuck with paying for it. I also love that you ca listen to the stations everywhere! That feature lets me be able to listen to my local stations when I’m traveling or listen to stations from different countries( feel very cultural because of it). If you are on the fence I highly recommend it! Get this app!!!!!
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Steep price
by MazeJack on 2018/03/16 16:26
The app itself is nice and works as it should. The reason I gave one star it is for the steep price to remove obnoxious adds. The part that I didn’t really like it is the fact that I can’t share my purchase with my family members on the shared purchase account and only one device can use the full version. Any other download is making me to pay $3.99 for in app purchase again to remove the adds. Pretty lame. Developer has no idea what I’m talking about in their response so I’m correct they overcharging for this heavily. Get rid off in app purchase and create separate pro version of this app to download then the purchase can be shared.
Excellent App 👍
by Wyoming J on 2018/04/09 16:38
I'd been using Tunein Radio for years; however, as it became more bloated over time, I finally deleted it and switched to Simple Radio. This app has access to all the stations I want to listen to, doesn't have the buffering problems, and other issues, that I had with the other app. As I found the ads in the free version annoying, I upgraded to the paid app.
I hadn’t noticed how much I use this app.
by Herbcat on 2018/01/11 21:33
I realized that this replaced the KPCC app for me at work. Their stream interrupts and drops a lot, but this is the only app that automatically reconnects. Not the developers fault, it happens with all streams and apps. I really couldn’t come up with a reason to hate it or avoid paying the $4, so thanks for the lightweight and completely unobtrusive app that is the most used and least noticed on my iPad.
KANW 89.1 FM Radio
by Not enjoying update on 2019/07/03 01:30
I have enjoyed listening to KANW since the 1980s. New Mexico is my home and where my heart is. I love listening to New Mexico music even though I don't speak Spanish fluently I understand because I was spoken to in Spanish but never required to respond in Spanish. I appreciate that the English language is spoken by the announcers but the music is in Spanish. Thank you for many years of enjoyment of New Mexico music. I love it!
Simple Radio
by FaithNGod on 2018/08/27 02:30
Simple Radio is the only way to connect to those out of state Radio stations that I love to listen to I just love his app wish I could have thought of it back in 2012 but it is what it is I’m just glad it’s out and i have it now I’m loving all of the newer upgrades it has gone through since I downloaded it back n 2014! Been telling my friends about it every since!
Easy and quick to listen to what you want!
by youcandohardthings on 2017/08/01 15:30
The steps to listen to your savwd station are as follows: 1. Open the app 2. Select the station you want to listen to. Within 5 seconds I'm listening. I've has radio apps that have so many adds, menus, rating systems, and other inhibiting features that I never gave a crap about. Simple Radio doesn't have any of that. Is like a breath of fresh air!
Great station.
by EllieKID57 on 2018/09/05 12:22
I’m so happy to listening every day. Mornings are so much fun and full of great news and people. Practically, every hour is very educational, and I appreciate the hard working people who are giving as very important and informational facts. It’s great to have a local radio station covering traffic, weather, news and great team to listen to. I thank you so much for letting us enjoy your programs. Regards, Ellie
