I’ve used Simple Radio for a few years, but tonight it quit running in the iPhone background. As soon as you minimize the screen the sound shuts off.
Eclectic tastes radio
by burning d'andre on 2021/10/19 00:17
For someone with eclectic tastes, from jazz to burning man, from punk rock to classical, and from Motown two Bluegrass, what more could you want in a radio station that you can pretty much get anywhere
Hard to port subscriptions on all devices
by Nt2shp on 2021/10/17 16:53
I like the app a lot, so much so I subscribed. But I can only use the subscription on the apple device is used to subscribe- i have not been able to sign-in on my other devices. INCREDIBLY annoying and not what i was lead to believe. Beware how you subscribe.

by Gilmanmama3 on 2021/10/17 12:55
I paid for a subscription so I wouldn’t have to listen to commercials, but, there are still constant commercials. Don’t waste your money!
Not bad
by bamer boy on 2021/10/16 22:04
Simple radio isn't bad for a free radio app. The only reason I use the app is to listen to Alabama games. The only issue I have is when the app cuts to a commercial in the middle of a play. That crap will piss you off when it does a couple times every quarter!

Best app ever

Good sound quality when it works
by LLAK24 on 2021/10/13 16:44
Most of the time, it works well. Occasionally it will repeatedly drop the steam, but it's not often. I do wish it would offer the ability to pause a stream instead of just reconnecting when the pause button is used, which is essentially the same function as clicking stop.

A waste of money
by zero7404 on 2021/10/12 16:47
The app occasionally forgets my favorites. No way to get them back unless I restore the whole phone from a backup. Developer does not know why. This has happened across a few years time and on more than one unique iphone. App lacks a stream buffer, immediately cuts off the stream when an internet connection is interrupted.

Doesn’t have live sports broadcasts
by jd34poohba on 2021/10/01 01:17
I wanted to use this app to listen to local broadcasts of NFL & NCAA football games. Stations that broadcast live sports can’t be found using this app. I tried to contact Simple Radio via their wesbsite & the App Store but the support page doesn’t work either. A total waste of time and money. It ought to be removed from the App Store

by sailonsue on 2021/09/17 21:56
I mainly use this as my US Apple App Store doesn’t support the ABC listen app. I lived away from Australia most of 2000-2010 and during this time bought a lot of music on iTunes. Now I live back in Australia but can’t swap app stores without losing all the music that I own. So I use this app to listen to ABC radio when I don’t have a radio handy. A good alternative
Great, except
by CloudRebel on 2021/09/14 02:48
I paid to get rid of the ads. That was well worth the price. The only problem I have with it is that if it loses connection while driving it doesn’t reconnect on its own. This can be dangerous. The reason I decided to write my review is I am using the app right now in my room and I dropped my phone. The app stopped playing as it should because my earbuds came unplugged. Once I plugged in my earbuds one would think I could just hit play on the front screen but I had to unlock the phone and close the app and reopen the app to get it to resume playing. This is the same thing that happens if I lose signal while driving. The app won’t just reconnect on its own once the LTE signal resumes. I have to unlock the phone and close and reopen the app for playing to resume.

by Phillydave427 on 2021/09/06 00:55
Love the app, great mix of stations. I have a paid subscription to avoid listening to commercials. However, last night while listening to music on Classic Oldies AM 1340, Atlantic City, NJ, I was subjected to six straight minutes of commercials for local businesses. It had not happened before, so I hope it is a temporary glitch and it has been corrected.

I left TuneIn forever.
by SoundMan87 on 2021/08/30 00:09
Simple Radio beats TuneIn hands-down. No ads, no shoving a subscription down your throat, just an intuitive app. Search could be improved to zero in on an exact call sign or zipcocde, but either way the design is great for channel-surfing. Perhaps the app’s biggest caveat is it’s greatest strength: no Iheart or Cumulus stations. You don’t get the corporate stations that sound exactly the same nationwide, but you also don’t get their annoying and repetitive stop sets which detract from the local flavor of the station. This is a really great app.

I’ve been listening to Simple Radio for years and pad the $3.99 for the timer. I used to be able to do other things on my phone while listening but recently the app stops playing when I open any other app. This is not going to work for me. I need to be able to text, read emails and surf the web while I’m listening to the radio or I will have to find another radio app.
Great app. How about info or album cover?
by Hsin31 on 2021/07/23 18:25
I really like the app. It is asthetically pleasing and uncluttered. They are not mean like others who make you stuck in ads. What I find may be helpful is many radio stations provide their content or album cover. It would be agreat improvement if that info could be included.

A unique station
by Fredric72 on 2021/07/20 23:01
For people like me who have memorized a thousand classical works by heart, this station spends no words explaining or even identifying what it is sending out—just music—a little bit of this and a piece of that, romantic followed by renaissance followed by Bach or Mozart or Shostakovich, all day long and into the night! I find it refreshing.

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

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.
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.
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.
Great, except
by CloudRebel on 2021/09/14 02:48
I paid to get rid of the ads. That was well worth the price. The only problem I have with it is that if it loses connection while driving it doesn’t reconnect on its own. This can be dangerous. The reason I decided to write my review is I am using the app right now in my room and I dropped my phone. The app stopped playing as it should because my earbuds came unplugged. Once I plugged in my earbuds one would think I could just hit play on the front screen but I had to unlock the phone and close the app and reopen the app to get it to resume playing. This is the same thing that happens if I lose signal while driving. The app won’t just reconnect on its own once the LTE signal resumes. I have to unlock the phone and close and reopen the app for playing to resume.
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.
Almost there..
by MamaHawk18 on 2021/03/28 21:55
What a gr8 App! The only way to listen to a world wide variety of music! What ever the mood you will be able to find something really great to listen to! I think it’s awesome that you can listen to stations from so many countries and as hear their news and happenings which is very interesting! Maybe even make new friends in other countries when you communicate with the DJs! I also have to say when I was having trouble getting a British station to connect-the simple radio customer service guy was so helpful! He collaborated with me and zeroed in on the issue and worked on it until it was fixed! Yay! That’s worth 5 stars!
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 thoughts on WEKT Heavenly 1070
by Cindytrax on 2021/05/21 17:11
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. Comments and Devotions, etc. I hope and pray that your station stays with Christian Gospel Music, I also love Joy Christian Radio, “Share The Joy”!!! May The Lord bless you and your station, beyond measure, in Jesus Christ’ Holy Name, Amen.

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.
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! 😊
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.
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.
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.
I left TuneIn forever.
by SoundMan87 on 2021/08/30 00:09
Simple Radio beats TuneIn hands-down. No ads, no shoving a subscription down your throat, just an intuitive app. Search could be improved to zero in on an exact call sign or zipcocde, but either way the design is great for channel-surfing. Perhaps the app’s biggest caveat is it’s greatest strength: no Iheart or Cumulus stations. You don’t get the corporate stations that sound exactly the same nationwide, but you also don’t get their annoying and repetitive stop sets which detract from the local flavor of the station. This is a really great app.
You bring me hone to my roots
by lissi cortes on 2021/10/16 15:25
Been in Florida for 35 years, Bronx made, born and native. Loud n proud of my Bronx and all we are about, Cocola y orgullosa, oh your station brings me back to my child hood days, fire escape hot summer nights, hand ball hustle for my $ to pay my way in to clubs n salsa all night. All the way back to salsa on roller skates, Yessss I love every second of tuning in. From Leesburg Florida living lake side in the country surrounded by RED NECKS, yes Red Necks, I tune in , crank up the volume n get to fishing, trimming, weeding and enjoy my neighbors shaking their butts to your tunes n my roots. Love life n love you all. God bless
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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!

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...
Works well most of the time
by Skidog69 on 2021/03/29 15:49
Works great most of the time. I like it. The problem is it sometimes refuses to release the user from viewing the advertising. The result is the user is unable to control the program material. This often happens when program is temporarily paused. It can’t then be restarted. It’s annoying! Hope this can be resolved in the near future. Otherwise works really well and allows access to radio stations all over the world that one would otherwise be unable to receive.
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!
Stops streaming every minute or so
by Don't Use Waze on 2021/02/18 15:18
Can’t complain about a free app, but I wish I could turn on a station and play a full song without the streaming stopping until I open the app, view the advertisement pop-up and tap to close the ad several times. Once I close the add streaming always continues, but I do wish I could listen to a full song without going through the steps. Also sometimes when I have a strong cell signal, the app will say I’m not connected and can’t stream, but ads can somehow still load and pop up repeatedly? How does that work?
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.

I’ve used Simple Radio for a few years, but tonight it quit running in the iPhone background. As soon as you minimize the screen the sound shuts off.
Eclectic tastes radio
by burning d'andre on 2021/10/19 00:17
For someone with eclectic tastes, from jazz to burning man, from punk rock to classical, and from Motown two Bluegrass, what more could you want in a radio station that you can pretty much get anywhere
Hard to port subscriptions on all devices
by Nt2shp on 2021/10/17 16:53
I like the app a lot, so much so I subscribed. But I can only use the subscription on the apple device is used to subscribe- i have not been able to sign-in on my other devices. INCREDIBLY annoying and not what i was lead to believe. Beware how you subscribe.

by Gilmanmama3 on 2021/10/17 12:55
I paid for a subscription so I wouldn’t have to listen to commercials, but, there are still constant commercials. Don’t waste your money!
Not bad
by bamer boy on 2021/10/16 22:04
Simple radio isn't bad for a free radio app. The only reason I use the app is to listen to Alabama games. The only issue I have is when the app cuts to a commercial in the middle of a play. That crap will piss you off when it does a couple times every quarter!

Great product !
Good sound quality when it works
by LLAK24 on 2021/10/13 16:44
Most of the time, it works well. Occasionally it will repeatedly drop the steam, but it's not often. I do wish it would offer the ability to pause a stream instead of just reconnecting when the pause button is used, which is essentially the same function as clicking stop.

A waste of money
by zero7404 on 2021/10/12 16:47
The app occasionally forgets my favorites. No way to get them back unless I restore the whole phone from a backup. Developer does not know why. This has happened across a few years time and on more than one unique iphone. App lacks a stream buffer, immediately cuts off the stream when an internet connection is interrupted.

Doesn’t have live sports broadcasts
by jd34poohba on 2021/10/01 01:17
I wanted to use this app to listen to local broadcasts of NFL & NCAA football games. Stations that broadcast live sports can’t be found using this app. I tried to contact Simple Radio via their wesbsite & the App Store but the support page doesn’t work either. A total waste of time and money. It ought to be removed from the App Store

by sailonsue on 2021/09/17 21:56
I mainly use this as my US Apple App Store doesn’t support the ABC listen app. I lived away from Australia most of 2000-2010 and during this time bought a lot of music on iTunes. Now I live back in Australia but can’t swap app stores without losing all the music that I own. So I use this app to listen to ABC radio when I don’t have a radio handy. A good alternative
Great, except
by CloudRebel on 2021/09/14 02:48
I paid to get rid of the ads. That was well worth the price. The only problem I have with it is that if it loses connection while driving it doesn’t reconnect on its own. This can be dangerous. The reason I decided to write my review is I am using the app right now in my room and I dropped my phone. The app stopped playing as it should because my earbuds came unplugged. Once I plugged in my earbuds one would think I could just hit play on the front screen but I had to unlock the phone and close the app and reopen the app to get it to resume playing. This is the same thing that happens if I lose signal while driving. The app won’t just reconnect on its own once the LTE signal resumes. I have to unlock the phone and close and reopen the app for playing to resume.

Great App, but . . .
by Phillydave427 on 2021/09/06 00:55
Love the app, great mix of stations. I have a paid subscription to avoid listening to commercials. However, last night while listening to music on Classic Oldies AM 1340, Atlantic City, NJ, I was subjected to six straight minutes of commercials for local businesses. It had not happened before, so I hope it is a temporary glitch and it has been corrected.

I left TuneIn forever.
by SoundMan87 on 2021/08/30 00:09
Simple Radio beats TuneIn hands-down. No ads, no shoving a subscription down your throat, just an intuitive app. Search could be improved to zero in on an exact call sign or zipcocde, but either way the design is great for channel-surfing. Perhaps the app’s biggest caveat is it’s greatest strength: no Iheart or Cumulus stations. You don’t get the corporate stations that sound exactly the same nationwide, but you also don’t get their annoying and repetitive stop sets which detract from the local flavor of the station. This is a really great app.

I’m tuned in to the mix And I paid for premium and I don’t hear any volume of the mix radio station that’s why it’s got a one star rating I don’t know what’s wrong but there’s no music that I can hear it says it’s playing but I hear nothing

I really like this app and it's my go-to for listening to live radio from around the world. And here's the BUT... It is a battery hog, like Facebook, Instagram and others. Please address the battery issue so that I can stay with this app and then I'd give it 5 stars.

I’ve been listening to Simple Radio for years and pad the $3.99 for the timer. I used to be able to do other things on my phone while listening but recently the app stops playing when I open any other app. This is not going to work for me. I need to be able to text, read emails and surf the web while I’m listening to the radio or I will have to find another radio app.
Great app. How about info or album cover?
by Hsin31 on 2021/07/23 18:25
I really like the app. It is asthetically pleasing and uncluttered. They are not mean like others who make you stuck in ads. What I find may be helpful is many radio stations provide their content or album cover. It would be agreat improvement if that info could be included.

I like to listen to radio. And I like to listen to radio at home on my Sonos speakers. But I can’t do that with this app since the app does not support AirPlay …. So I have no method to use this app with my speakers Give the app AirPlay support!
A unique station
by Fredric72 on 2021/07/20 23:01
For people like me who have memorized a thousand classical works by heart, this station spends no words explaining or even identifying what it is sending out—just music—a little bit of this and a piece of that, romantic followed by renaissance followed by Bach or Mozart or Shostakovich, all day long and into the night! I find it refreshing.

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.
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.
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.
Great, except
by CloudRebel on 2021/09/14 02:48
I paid to get rid of the ads. That was well worth the price. The only problem I have with it is that if it loses connection while driving it doesn’t reconnect on its own. This can be dangerous. The reason I decided to write my review is I am using the app right now in my room and I dropped my phone. The app stopped playing as it should because my earbuds came unplugged. Once I plugged in my earbuds one would think I could just hit play on the front screen but I had to unlock the phone and close the app and reopen the app to get it to resume playing. This is the same thing that happens if I lose signal while driving. The app won’t just reconnect on its own once the LTE signal resumes. I have to unlock the phone and close and reopen the app for playing to resume.
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.
Almost there..
by MamaHawk18 on 2021/03/28 21:55
What a gr8 App! The only way to listen to a world wide variety of music! What ever the mood you will be able to find something really great to listen to! I think it’s awesome that you can listen to stations from so many countries and as hear their news and happenings which is very interesting! Maybe even make new friends in other countries when you communicate with the DJs! I also have to say when I was having trouble getting a British station to connect-the simple radio customer service guy was so helpful! He collaborated with me and zeroed in on the issue and worked on it until it was fixed! Yay! That’s worth 5 stars!
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 thoughts on WEKT Heavenly 1070
by Cindytrax on 2021/05/21 17:11
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. Comments and Devotions, etc. I hope and pray that your station stays with Christian Gospel Music, I also love Joy Christian Radio, “Share The Joy”!!! May The Lord bless you and your station, beyond measure, in Jesus Christ’ Holy Name, Amen.

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.
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! 😊
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.
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.
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.
I left TuneIn forever.
by SoundMan87 on 2021/08/30 00:09
Simple Radio beats TuneIn hands-down. No ads, no shoving a subscription down your throat, just an intuitive app. Search could be improved to zero in on an exact call sign or zipcocde, but either way the design is great for channel-surfing. Perhaps the app’s biggest caveat is it’s greatest strength: no Iheart or Cumulus stations. You don’t get the corporate stations that sound exactly the same nationwide, but you also don’t get their annoying and repetitive stop sets which detract from the local flavor of the station. This is a really great app.
You bring me hone to my roots
by lissi cortes on 2021/10/16 15:25
Been in Florida for 35 years, Bronx made, born and native. Loud n proud of my Bronx and all we are about, Cocola y orgullosa, oh your station brings me back to my child hood days, fire escape hot summer nights, hand ball hustle for my $ to pay my way in to clubs n salsa all night. All the way back to salsa on roller skates, Yessss I love every second of tuning in. From Leesburg Florida living lake side in the country surrounded by RED NECKS, yes Red Necks, I tune in , crank up the volume n get to fishing, trimming, weeding and enjoy my neighbors shaking their butts to your tunes n my roots. Love life n love you all. God bless
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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...
Works well most of the time
by Skidog69 on 2021/03/29 15:49
Works great most of the time. I like it. The problem is it sometimes refuses to release the user from viewing the advertising. The result is the user is unable to control the program material. This often happens when program is temporarily paused. It can’t then be restarted. It’s annoying! Hope this can be resolved in the near future. Otherwise works really well and allows access to radio stations all over the world that one would otherwise be unable to receive.
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!
Stops streaming every minute or so
by Don't Use Waze on 2021/02/18 15:18
Can’t complain about a free app, but I wish I could turn on a station and play a full song without the streaming stopping until I open the app, view the advertisement pop-up and tap to close the ad several times. Once I close the add streaming always continues, but I do wish I could listen to a full song without going through the steps. Also sometimes when I have a strong cell signal, the app will say I’m not connected and can’t stream, but ads can somehow still load and pop up repeatedly? How does that work?
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 !

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

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

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!
