My morning coffee and my evening relaxation tea
by Nantche on 2020/11/21 17:48
Through this app I listen daily to NPR (National Public Radio) en general and to WFDD in particular for my region. That the first thing I start my day with, the last thing I do before "closing" my mind for the day. This app holds throughout the day. I observe from time to time some freezes and some sudden stops but nothing "insurmountable ". I even suspect those glitches may be due to my devices rather than to the application (in use all day long). I love the access to music stations as well. I'm very pleased with this app. Kudos! 😊

Easy to use, but ads ruin it
by RickyDeDe on 2020/11/19 00:23
An easy way to get a limited mix of stations in the US and some overseas. It will pause for a few seconds occasionally to "buffer", but I expect that will get fixed. And unlike iHeart, no sign-up needed. Yes, the ads annoy so I cannot give it five stars. Hope it does not degrade as is so common with many apps that "update" over time. Update: after a couple of uses, the ads get dramatically more frequent and intrusive. Sorry, but I have now deleted it and am moving on.
Artist ID

Florida listener
by TCamery on 2020/11/18 18:31
My family and I are moving to Colorado at the end of 2021.I searched and found your radio station and have been listening to you guys ever sense. I love to hear all the DJs on the ministry team, testimonials, all of your programming, the prayers that go out to your listeners every day. It’s truly refreshing to know that we’ve got an awesome radio station not only here in Florida to listen to but when we get out to the mountains. Blessings!
Me encanta.

Good concept annoying ads
by macpro3000 on 2020/11/17 21:04
I like the variety of radio stations offered and the ability to save favorites. Ads would not be bad, but I hate those that cover the entire screen with a close button (usually an X ) that is so small, hard to see and take multiple taps to close. This is so frustrating. Either have the ads display for 2 to 3 seconds and just have them automatically go away.... Or make the X buttons bigger in the same corner per ad and have them being easily clicked away in one tap.

Simple radio makes it easy for me to listen to my favorite stations. I actually like the ads that pop up, they don’t interfere with my listening to the program or music and some are interesting. I have clicked on some of them. Keep up the good work, you are the main service I use 98% of the time!!!!! Thanks!

I can’t fine a sports station on this app like I can’t watch some of my games while I’m at work so I loved to hear them and listen to games while I do my job if you guys fix this problem I’d gladly give you 5 stars In a heart beat no doubt about that

Don’t get me wrong...
by mdcoop_ak on 2020/11/13 17:09
I love KNBA. But the app (for me) is prone to long periods of not working. I am not sure if it’s phone, app or the station...but I’m on WiFi and will get about 5-10 mins of working followed by long periods of not...so if it boils down to user error, if someone could correct the errors of my way that would be great! Happy Listening...

Algo muy bueno y bien logrado excelente audición .
Terrible performance
by PastTents on 2020/11/06 12:28
I can deal with the ads, but the continued stopping of the audio stream is intolerable. It fully stops playing every 3 to 5 minutes, and I have to push the play button to get it going again. Tunemark was a great free app, but they stopped upgrading to maintain compatibility with the latest iOS versions. I am currently streaming from directly the radio station’s website and it is working beautifully. I will just continue to get the stream directly from broadcasters’ websites—don’t need an unpredictable app like Simple Radio getting in my way.
Best free app.
by Buck 70 on 2020/10/31 21:38
I found this app very easy to use and I can find all the stations that I listen to and want to listen to, even new ones... thanks for the great service.
great skinny streaming app
by DK_TO on 2020/10/31 12:57
Much improved from a couple years ago. Streams well; some stations will drop but it’s not more than once an hour, on average. This app is better than TuneIn; TuneIn is great at creeping your listening behaviour and sending endless ads. This app is light, quick and good. I have the paid version and recommend it highly versus the free version.

The app isn’t great. It has repeatedly crashed for me after 5 seconds. Not to mention the amount of ads! I know it’s free but wow there are a lot of ads. Another thing is that the filter doesn’t work. I go into the pop section I get classical music. So yeah...

Doesn’t work on watch
by muecker on 2020/10/14 02:10
Their web site says it works on Apple Watch and implies you don’t need a phone. That isn’t the case, I selected a couple of stations and tried to play them from my watch. They played on the phone. I put my phone in airplane mode and nothing would play. I got this app specifically because I wanted to listen to radio on my watch and this app isn’t it. Otherwise I would have paid for the app. Instead I’m deleting it.

Works great! Can you add volume control to the Watch app?
by thebigeye on 2020/10/09 16:48
I have been using this app for many years. It works great. I was wondering if the developers can add volume control to the Digital crown of the Apple Watch app like some other apps do. That would be very handy.

Talking ADS OVER MY MUSIC 😡
by Mzgapch on 2020/10/01 14:44
I love the app but recently there is a quick books ad that comes on and literally talks through your music playing! I didn’t mind the ads before because there wasn’t sound but if this continues I am going to uninstall because it’s awful I can’t hear my fave stations because it’s all playing at the same time and it’s a horrible mess!! And now to top it off it has stopped playing in the background time to find a new app
Car Play Issues
by Dragos909 on 2020/09/30 10:55
The app has issues in car play. If I select it to play from within carplay it won't do so. I have to actually start the radio from the phone itself. I wish this would get fixed, that's why I am giving it a 2 star.
It was good while it lasted...(updated)
by Hope11314 on 2020/09/27 19:57
Updated review:The most recent app update seems to have fixed this issue, however the fix that the developer offered made absolutely no difference. Old review: App won’t play in the playground. If I switch to another app or lock the phone it shuts off completely. So it’s pretty much useless now.

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.

Hello, I have had simple radio for about 2 yrs now. up until now the app has been fine, ever since the latest update(either on your end or iPhones updated end)the app WAS great, now every time I have an alarm go off simple radio completely stops playing and DOES NOT start playing again after I turn alarm off(it used to just start playing automatically again) not only that but when I enter simple radio I have to switch stations and switch back to the one I was listening too in order for it to continue playing. Also, on the lock screen there used to be the play/pause button as well as next station, that no longer exists(I now have to unlock phone and go into simple radio for everything). I don’t know what the hell happened, but the interface for simple radio is completely jacked now.
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.
Reliable performance and good selection
by Amygirl434 on 2020/09/03 12:20
This is a very good app for people who like to listen to actual radio stations from around the world. The selection of stations is very broad and the performance is reliable with zero crashes so far (unlike a competitor app). Why not a 5 star rating? 1.) No podcasts. 2.) Certain big-time stations (like 890 WLS) are not available (maybe a conflict with iHeart?). 3.) Annoying ads that pop up at the beginning of most streams, but they're easy enough to close and I realize they have to get revenue from somewhere. 4.) Some of the streams don't have the best audio quality, but they're still quite listenable for those of us used to the quality of actual AM radio. 5.) Some of the streams just don't work. Not sure why. But, all in all, still a pretty good app.
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.
Simple radio
by Grifftrain on 2020/02/16 13:54
This app is quickly becoming my “go to” app for listening to internet radio. As it’s title suggests, it’s very simple to use. If you already know the name of your favorite station, just search for it. If you just want to browse, then pick one of the many genres and browse till you find what you want. The only drawback so far is no listing of the song being played or the artist. Sometimes you hear a song you love, but don’t don’t the name of the song or the performer. Would be nice if it was listed somewhere. Small detail, but it’s one I miss. Other than that, a great app.
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.
My morning coffee and my evening relaxation tea
by Nantche on 2020/11/21 17:48
Through this app I listen daily to NPR (National Public Radio) en general and to WFDD in particular for my region. That the first thing I start my day with, the last thing I do before "closing" my mind for the day. This app holds throughout the day. I observe from time to time some freezes and some sudden stops but nothing "insurmountable ". I even suspect those glitches may be due to my devices rather than to the application (in use all day long). I love the access to music stations as well. I'm very pleased with this app. Kudos! 😊
Captain c
by Cc21157 on 2018/01/08 21:53
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.
Development ideas...
by Gruoihrrchihbfdd on 2019/12/10 01:35
App seemed fine in the five minutes (or less) I had it on my phone. Didn’t bother to keep it as it doesn’t have any but like 3 local channels. I would’ve thought about keeping it had it had 104.1 on in NE Ohio. Also, the UI was funky on my phone (iPhone XR). The three tabs on the bottom were squished for some reason. And the search results could be organized better. It’s annoying to look through the whole list to see if a local station is there if there isn’t a way for it to be organized. Didn’t notice any ads as other people complained about, but that’s probably because I only had it for a few minutes.
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.
Easy to use & versatile
by NorthFloridaMan on 2019/12/03 12:43
I use This app daily at the office and to listen to National Public Radio, Jazz, reggae, and a host of other radio station feeds from around the world. Standard radio signals are limited but using this app with my phone I am able to get uninterrupted radio! Handy and easy to use. The only issue I see, and it is a minor one, is that NPR tends to cycle through the same few shows repeatedly. And this differs from the NPR feed I get when in my car. I would highly recommend Simple Radio, especially those who live or work in concrete or other type structures that can block radio waves.
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.
Superb rating
by Denseht on 2020/03/20 18:25
I have a favorite radio station for music. When I drive out of range during a particular song, or want to walk away from the radio, I con continue listening to it through this phone application. I love having the mobility! I initially found this application looking for an old time mystery and suspense channel. I have shared this site with coworkers and clients that might want to find music or programs they didn’t know might still be broadcasted. Thank you for making this available.
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.
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.
My thoughts on WEKT Heavenly 1070
by Cindytrax on 2019/11/04 19:42
Thank you sooo much for asking for my thoughts about your Radio Station. I really hope and pray that your station gets a stronger signal, (going around wires, etc makes a lot of static interference, and I miss it at night. I enjoy hearing your Gospel Music, ~ Ethel Waters, Mahalia Jackson, and sooo many others; Southern Gospel Music, ~ Tennessee Ernie Ford, The Gaithers, The Goodmans’s, The Speer Family, The Cathedrals, and many others. Songs of Hymns, The Original of Amazing Grace, It Is No Secret, What A Day That Will Be, Oh What A Savior, Nearer My God To Thee, and I could take all day to name them all. Inspirational, ~ We Shall Behold Him, Contemporary, ~ In Christ Alone, Ten Thousand Reasons, on The Wings Of Love, The Midnight Cry, Do You Have His Heart, Or Just His Robe?, and a lot of others. Brother Mike Dorsey, of Trenton Assembly of God, in Todd County, KY. Comments and Devotions, etc. I hope and pray that your station stays with Christian Gospel Music, May The Lord bless you and your station, beyond measure, in Jesus Christ’ Holy Name, Amen.
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).
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!
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.
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.
Talking ADS OVER MY MUSIC 😡
by Mzgapch on 2020/10/01 14:44
I love the app but recently there is a quick books ad that comes on and literally talks through your music playing! I didn’t mind the ads before because there wasn’t sound but if this continues I am going to uninstall because it’s awful I can’t hear my fave stations because it’s all playing at the same time and it’s a horrible mess!! And now to top it off it has stopped playing in the background time to find a new app
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!
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.
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!

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...
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.
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!!
Love Simple Radio
by Joni WPFW on 2019/11/29 06:32
I’m a big radio fan, actually have hosted a talk show in DC for past 27 years, have 2-3 stations I try to listen to much of the time. But the apps or internet never quite worked continuously; they’d work for awhile & then shut off—very frustrating. Simple Radio has changed all that! Now I can listen to my favorite stations easily when ever I want. Really appreciate Simple Radio! Terrific! Never would’ve known abt you if my friend hadn’t told me. Thank You!
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.
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 !
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.
easy to use and very powerful
by Yo177 on 2020/05/25 01:18
I love listening to the radio with this app, very high quality and most likely powerful too. My only question is, is it possible that we as users can record the radio station? I listen to radio stations that do mix remixes every once in a while, and I would love to go back and listen to the mix again. I understand if that's not something you are legal to do. Anyway, I hope that this review helps!
Love my NPR station and Affiliate stations.
by KathleenL. on 2019/12/30 15:31
Just moved from Chicago to Denver and I was beyond relieved to find I could still connect to listen to my favorite broadcast station. With my recent relocation and so many stations terminating I was very concerned about being able to obtain high quality, objective information and enjoyable entertainment pieces that I had come to love through the years. Gratefully, NPR/CPR broadcasts here. Thank you to the entire STAFF who are truly fantastic providers to this devoted & loyal listener. LOVE THIS STATION!!!
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.
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
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.
Loses my favorites
by there is more than one becky on 2020/03/28 12:20
This is a nice app for radio on the go and I can’t compare since it’s the first one I’ve used. However I listen to my local station consistently and have labeled it favorite multiple times but every so often it disappears and I have to refind and refavorite it. This keeps happening and is annoying. Once in awhile the app will randomly switch what I’m listening to and all of a sudden I’m listening to Jazz (which I don’t even like). The paid version doesn’t seem like it would fix this problem and what it offers over the free doesn’t interest me. please fix the bugs.

My morning coffee and my evening relaxation tea
by Nantche on 2020/11/21 17:48
Through this app I listen daily to NPR (National Public Radio) en general and to WFDD in particular for my region. That the first thing I start my day with, the last thing I do before "closing" my mind for the day. This app holds throughout the day. I observe from time to time some freezes and some sudden stops but nothing "insurmountable ". I even suspect those glitches may be due to my devices rather than to the application (in use all day long). I love the access to music stations as well. I'm very pleased with this app. Kudos! 😊

Easy to use, but ads ruin it
by RickyDeDe on 2020/11/19 00:23
An easy way to get a limited mix of stations in the US and some overseas. It will pause for a few seconds occasionally to "buffer", but I expect that will get fixed. And unlike iHeart, no sign-up needed. Yes, the ads annoy so I cannot give it five stars. Hope it does not degrade as is so common with many apps that "update" over time. Update: after a couple of uses, the ads get dramatically more frequent and intrusive. Sorry, but I have now deleted it and am moving on.
Artist ID

Florida listener
by TCamery on 2020/11/18 18:31
My family and I are moving to Colorado at the end of 2021.I searched and found your radio station and have been listening to you guys ever sense. I love to hear all the DJs on the ministry team, testimonials, all of your programming, the prayers that go out to your listeners every day. It’s truly refreshing to know that we’ve got an awesome radio station not only here in Florida to listen to but when we get out to the mountains. Blessings!
Me encanta.

Good concept annoying ads
by macpro3000 on 2020/11/17 21:04
I like the variety of radio stations offered and the ability to save favorites. Ads would not be bad, but I hate those that cover the entire screen with a close button (usually an X ) that is so small, hard to see and take multiple taps to close. This is so frustrating. Either have the ads display for 2 to 3 seconds and just have them automatically go away.... Or make the X buttons bigger in the same corner per ad and have them being easily clicked away in one tap.

Simple radio makes it easy for me to listen to my favorite stations. I actually like the ads that pop up, they don’t interfere with my listening to the program or music and some are interesting. I have clicked on some of them. Keep up the good work, you are the main service I use 98% of the time!!!!! Thanks!

by hugenads on 2020/11/16 01:19
I can’t fine a sports station on this app like I can’t watch some of my games while I’m at work so I loved to hear them and listen to games while I do my job if you guys fix this problem I’d gladly give you 5 stars In a heart beat no doubt about that

Don’t get me wrong...
by mdcoop_ak on 2020/11/13 17:09
I love KNBA. But the app (for me) is prone to long periods of not working. I am not sure if it’s phone, app or the station...but I’m on WiFi and will get about 5-10 mins of working followed by long periods of not...so if it boils down to user error, if someone could correct the errors of my way that would be great! Happy Listening...

Mi opinión
by Perronco on 2020/11/07 12:25
Algo muy bueno y bien logrado excelente audición .
Terrible performance
by PastTents on 2020/11/06 12:28
I can deal with the ads, but the continued stopping of the audio stream is intolerable. It fully stops playing every 3 to 5 minutes, and I have to push the play button to get it going again. Tunemark was a great free app, but they stopped upgrading to maintain compatibility with the latest iOS versions. I am currently streaming from directly the radio station’s website and it is working beautifully. I will just continue to get the stream directly from broadcasters’ websites—don’t need an unpredictable app like Simple Radio getting in my way.
Best free app.
by Buck 70 on 2020/10/31 21:38
I found this app very easy to use and I can find all the stations that I listen to and want to listen to, even new ones... thanks for the great service.
great skinny streaming app
by DK_TO on 2020/10/31 12:57
Much improved from a couple years ago. Streams well; some stations will drop but it’s not more than once an hour, on average. This app is better than TuneIn; TuneIn is great at creeping your listening behaviour and sending endless ads. This app is light, quick and good. I have the paid version and recommend it highly versus the free version.

The app isn’t great. It has repeatedly crashed for me after 5 seconds. Not to mention the amount of ads! I know it’s free but wow there are a lot of ads. Another thing is that the filter doesn’t work. I go into the pop section I get classical music. So yeah...

Doesn’t work on watch
by muecker on 2020/10/14 02:10
Their web site says it works on Apple Watch and implies you don’t need a phone. That isn’t the case, I selected a couple of stations and tried to play them from my watch. They played on the phone. I put my phone in airplane mode and nothing would play. I got this app specifically because I wanted to listen to radio on my watch and this app isn’t it. Otherwise I would have paid for the app. Instead I’m deleting it.

Very irritated, frustrated with this so called tech that’s supposed to make things easier or faster. It crap!😡

Works great! Can you add volume control to the Watch app?
by thebigeye on 2020/10/09 16:48
I have been using this app for many years. It works great. I was wondering if the developers can add volume control to the Digital crown of the Apple Watch app like some other apps do. That would be very handy.
Too many ads!

Talking ADS OVER MY MUSIC 😡
by Mzgapch on 2020/10/01 14:44
I love the app but recently there is a quick books ad that comes on and literally talks through your music playing! I didn’t mind the ads before because there wasn’t sound but if this continues I am going to uninstall because it’s awful I can’t hear my fave stations because it’s all playing at the same time and it’s a horrible mess!! And now to top it off it has stopped playing in the background time to find a new app
Car Play Issues
by Dragos909 on 2020/09/30 10:55
The app has issues in car play. If I select it to play from within carplay it won't do so. I have to actually start the radio from the phone itself. I wish this would get fixed, that's why I am giving it a 2 star.
It was good while it lasted...(updated)
by Hope11314 on 2020/09/27 19:57
Updated review:The most recent app update seems to have fixed this issue, however the fix that the developer offered made absolutely no difference. Old review: App won’t play in the playground. If I switch to another app or lock the phone it shuts off completely. So it’s pretty much useless now.

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!!!

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.
What happened
by Czernobog82 on 2020/03/18 15:26
Hello, I have had simple radio for about 2 yrs now. up until now the app has been fine, ever since the latest update(either on your end or iPhones updated end)the app WAS great, now every time I have an alarm go off simple radio completely stops playing and DOES NOT start playing again after I turn alarm off(it used to just start playing automatically again) not only that but when I enter simple radio I have to switch stations and switch back to the one I was listening too in order for it to continue playing. Also, on the lock screen there used to be the play/pause button as well as next station, that no longer exists(I now have to unlock phone and go into simple radio for everything). I don’t know what the hell happened, but the interface for simple radio is completely jacked now.
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.
Reliable performance and good selection
by Amygirl434 on 2020/09/03 12:20
This is a very good app for people who like to listen to actual radio stations from around the world. The selection of stations is very broad and the performance is reliable with zero crashes so far (unlike a competitor app). Why not a 5 star rating? 1.) No podcasts. 2.) Certain big-time stations (like 890 WLS) are not available (maybe a conflict with iHeart?). 3.) Annoying ads that pop up at the beginning of most streams, but they're easy enough to close and I realize they have to get revenue from somewhere. 4.) Some of the streams don't have the best audio quality, but they're still quite listenable for those of us used to the quality of actual AM radio. 5.) Some of the streams just don't work. Not sure why. But, all in all, still a pretty good app.
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.
Simple radio
by Grifftrain on 2020/02/16 13:54
This app is quickly becoming my “go to” app for listening to internet radio. As it’s title suggests, it’s very simple to use. If you already know the name of your favorite station, just search for it. If you just want to browse, then pick one of the many genres and browse till you find what you want. The only drawback so far is no listing of the song being played or the artist. Sometimes you hear a song you love, but don’t don’t the name of the song or the performer. Would be nice if it was listed somewhere. Small detail, but it’s one I miss. Other than that, a great app.
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.
My morning coffee and my evening relaxation tea
by Nantche on 2020/11/21 17:48
Through this app I listen daily to NPR (National Public Radio) en general and to WFDD in particular for my region. That the first thing I start my day with, the last thing I do before "closing" my mind for the day. This app holds throughout the day. I observe from time to time some freezes and some sudden stops but nothing "insurmountable ". I even suspect those glitches may be due to my devices rather than to the application (in use all day long). I love the access to music stations as well. I'm very pleased with this app. Kudos! 😊
Captain c
by Cc21157 on 2018/01/08 21:53
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.
Development ideas...
by Gruoihrrchihbfdd on 2019/12/10 01:35
App seemed fine in the five minutes (or less) I had it on my phone. Didn’t bother to keep it as it doesn’t have any but like 3 local channels. I would’ve thought about keeping it had it had 104.1 on in NE Ohio. Also, the UI was funky on my phone (iPhone XR). The three tabs on the bottom were squished for some reason. And the search results could be organized better. It’s annoying to look through the whole list to see if a local station is there if there isn’t a way for it to be organized. Didn’t notice any ads as other people complained about, but that’s probably because I only had it for a few minutes.
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.
Easy to use & versatile
by NorthFloridaMan on 2019/12/03 12:43
I use This app daily at the office and to listen to National Public Radio, Jazz, reggae, and a host of other radio station feeds from around the world. Standard radio signals are limited but using this app with my phone I am able to get uninterrupted radio! Handy and easy to use. The only issue I see, and it is a minor one, is that NPR tends to cycle through the same few shows repeatedly. And this differs from the NPR feed I get when in my car. I would highly recommend Simple Radio, especially those who live or work in concrete or other type structures that can block radio waves.
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.
Superb rating
by Denseht on 2020/03/20 18:25
I have a favorite radio station for music. When I drive out of range during a particular song, or want to walk away from the radio, I con continue listening to it through this phone application. I love having the mobility! I initially found this application looking for an old time mystery and suspense channel. I have shared this site with coworkers and clients that might want to find music or programs they didn’t know might still be broadcasted. Thank you for making this available.
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.
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.
My thoughts on WEKT Heavenly 1070
by Cindytrax on 2019/11/04 19:42
Thank you sooo much for asking for my thoughts about your Radio Station. I really hope and pray that your station gets a stronger signal, (going around wires, etc makes a lot of static interference, and I miss it at night. I enjoy hearing your Gospel Music, ~ Ethel Waters, Mahalia Jackson, and sooo many others; Southern Gospel Music, ~ Tennessee Ernie Ford, The Gaithers, The Goodmans’s, The Speer Family, The Cathedrals, and many others. Songs of Hymns, The Original of Amazing Grace, It Is No Secret, What A Day That Will Be, Oh What A Savior, Nearer My God To Thee, and I could take all day to name them all. Inspirational, ~ We Shall Behold Him, Contemporary, ~ In Christ Alone, Ten Thousand Reasons, on The Wings Of Love, The Midnight Cry, Do You Have His Heart, Or Just His Robe?, and a lot of others. Brother Mike Dorsey, of Trenton Assembly of God, in Todd County, KY. Comments and Devotions, etc. I hope and pray that your station stays with Christian Gospel Music, May The Lord bless you and your station, beyond measure, in Jesus Christ’ Holy Name, Amen.
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).
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!
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.
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.
Talking ADS OVER MY MUSIC 😡
by Mzgapch on 2020/10/01 14:44
I love the app but recently there is a quick books ad that comes on and literally talks through your music playing! I didn’t mind the ads before because there wasn’t sound but if this continues I am going to uninstall because it’s awful I can’t hear my fave stations because it’s all playing at the same time and it’s a horrible mess!! And now to top it off it has stopped playing in the background time to find a new app
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!
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.
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!
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...
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.
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!!
Love Simple Radio
by Joni WPFW on 2019/11/29 06:32
I’m a big radio fan, actually have hosted a talk show in DC for past 27 years, have 2-3 stations I try to listen to much of the time. But the apps or internet never quite worked continuously; they’d work for awhile & then shut off—very frustrating. Simple Radio has changed all that! Now I can listen to my favorite stations easily when ever I want. Really appreciate Simple Radio! Terrific! Never would’ve known abt you if my friend hadn’t told me. Thank You!
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.
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 !
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.
easy to use and very powerful
by Yo177 on 2020/05/25 01:18
I love listening to the radio with this app, very high quality and most likely powerful too. My only question is, is it possible that we as users can record the radio station? I listen to radio stations that do mix remixes every once in a while, and I would love to go back and listen to the mix again. I understand if that's not something you are legal to do. Anyway, I hope that this review helps!
Love my NPR station and Affiliate stations.
by KathleenL. on 2019/12/30 15:31
Just moved from Chicago to Denver and I was beyond relieved to find I could still connect to listen to my favorite broadcast station. With my recent relocation and so many stations terminating I was very concerned about being able to obtain high quality, objective information and enjoyable entertainment pieces that I had come to love through the years. Gratefully, NPR/CPR broadcasts here. Thank you to the entire STAFF who are truly fantastic providers to this devoted & loyal listener. LOVE THIS STATION!!!
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.
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

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
App is great but ads start again on new device

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.
Loses my favorites

This is a nice app for radio on the go and I can’t compare since it’s the first one I’ve used. However I listen to my local station consistently and have labeled it favorite multiple times but every so often it disappears and I have to refind and refavorite it. This keeps happening and is annoying. Once in awhile the app will randomly switch what I’m listening to and all of a sudden I’m listening to Jazz (which I don’t even like). The paid version doesn’t seem like it would fix this problem and what it offers over the free doesn’t interest me. please fix the bugs.
