I have been looking for a station that is streaming the bbc programs since I came to The US. When I discovered this radio, I was so amazed. Now I can listen on my phone to all programs from the bbc and many other stations. Thanks guys you are awesome.

Frustrating
by Reds took on 2019/03/09 15:52
IPhone XS continually halts after 15 minutes or so, usually coincident with a popup ad. Requires one to hit the play icon to resume. I deleted the app and am happy with myTuner Radio instead.
Functionally Superb, Aesthetically Mediocre.

Functionally superb, but aesthetically mediocre.
Car Play does not work
by kms.us on 2019/03/09 05:35
This app supposedly supports car play. Tried it in two cars (BMW and Mercedes) using two different iPhones. In 90% of the cases when I select a station it just does not work. It never plays the station. TuneIn and mytuner work just fine. I reported this months ago and have seen many app updates but none of them fixed that. Very disappointing.
Paid for the premium and still get ads
by edvalerio on 2019/03/08 13:09
I really like the app and that is why I bought it with the promise to “unlock everything and remove ads” the problem is that I still get ads in the middle of a song as if I hadn’t paid for it. I hope the developer can solve this.
Sounds
by Maple leaf jake on 2019/03/06 23:15
I really do understand the need for ads, but having said that, what I question is the use of sounds with the ads on a radio app. And, a sound ad that is on before one has the opportunity to clear it. At times it appears that some of these ads are chosen for their ability to annoy and consequently buy the paid app version.
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Excellent.
by Dpizz@ on 2019/03/04 17:04
Just great. I love NPR from Washington, and Classic FM from the UK. I can listen to live news from Bakersfield California! The 3.99 payment is totally worth it, only a one time payment for ad free radio forever. very fast streaming, mild loading times. Love!!
Thanks
by daveattwin on 2019/03/04 15:49

I love simple radio. Easy to use. Only exception is that ads get ‘stuck’ on the screen and it’s difficult to make them go away when I need to pause the station to listen to someone else quickly.

Latest update
by forte green on 2019/02/25 20:40
Seems that this latest update was not good. The app keeps shutting off after a few minutes. And if ur listening to a station and try to go to another app the app shuts down. What’s going on?!?
Still doesn’t work!
by MotherTrucker 24 on 2019/02/25 18:33
I wrote a review on this ap LAST YEAR regarding WKZO am590. The only reason I downloaded this ap was to be able to listen to the Detroit Tigers games, which I still cannot do. I received an email from the developer saying the issue was corrected, which I now have discovered was a false statement. There is still no sound aside from a high pitches ringing noise. I remain EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!
Sad and Disappointed
by Kat.Marie.Cosmetics on 2019/02/25 01:40
I am very disappointed. I got this app so I can listen to the same radio stations I get in my car or on my alarm clock while I clean around the house. This? Is not it. This shouldn’t even be a 4-5 star app! I can not get the ONE station I really got the app for! Thinking this app was for your car radio stations by your area...yeah, no; not happening. I found two stations that were decent and legitimate (from my area) so I’ll give it two stars instead of one. But other than that, where the hell is the ALT 103.7 in Dallas?!?
My favorite

Plays ads while you want to hear music
by Lkrndu on 2019/02/23 21:50
Title says it all. Junk. I left 1star. Your app now plays audio ads over the station I want to listen to. Terrible. Looking for something else. Something called iTranslate Traduttore may be the rogue here.
I like it

Garbage app
by Minion buster on 2019/02/21 11:33
Pop up ads are completely overwhelming. Don’t waste your time with this app. Navigating from station to station in search of a favorite song will trigger an ad within a few clicks. And every ad takes several clicks to close. List of jukebox stations is limited to only a few and some don’t even work anymore. Enough said, deleting this garbage app with no regrets.
Alarm Clock
by pocket plane wiz on 2019/02/20 23:05
This would be the PERFECT app if this it would allow me to wake up to the radio!! I’ve look for something like this for years, and I can’t find one that let’s you wake up to your radio program without falling asleep with this app on the front page.
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.

Maybe it’s my lack of knowledge about the app but it seems to be limiting unless you’re willing to pay for features that should be included in an app that purports to free. While I appreciate the opportunity to listen on my devices, the number of commercial advertisers should by itself be enough.

by mnvang50 on 2019/02/12 14:52
Connection quality/consistency not as good as other radio apps. Really like the variety of stations. Quality stations available.
Works very well, but a few suggestions...
by esmith512 on 2019/02/12 05:33
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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
Works very well, but a few suggestions...
by esmith512 on 2019/02/12 05:33
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.
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.
Disappointed now
by cchfgytjnggu on 2019/02/20 16:10
Used to live this app, any radio station I wanted. But 2 days ago and after the last update it won’t connect and tells me that these stations are no longer available. I guess it’s time to move to another app. Update: Just tried it again and it’s back and I’m super happy about it. But not sure if it’s you it sends the reports to but when it says we will let you know when it’s back up and running then you should make that happen. Don’t know if it’s my phone or you just have no way of sending it but it’s just something that would be nice. Thank you for a great simple app. Not a whole lot of bells and whistles to deal with.

Got the free app and was disappointed. The way they display the ads is what ticks me off. With my car radio not working, I'm using this app. As you're listening, out of the blue it cuts off. So I reach for the phone and what's there? An ad. So you click the "X", or the "no thanks" to close the ad and continue listening, 10 minutes later, repeat... Very annoying when trying to drive and have to close all the ads just to listen to this app. In an hour drive this happens 3 to 5 times, always right before the part you want to hear it seems. Other apps the ads are there, but doesn't cut off what you are listening to just so you will acknowledge the ad! I'm deleting this one. It's not a "hands free" while driving friendly app. Someone is going to crash their car while acknowledging the ads.
Love it. Want to love it more.
by prof hf on 2017/08/20 03:57
Great app--easy to use, and it works well!! Sometimes, a station loads, but cuts out once or several times in the first few minutes, sometimes for more than a minute. But once that's over, the connection with the station is pretty secure. Why 4 stars, then, and not 5? I wish there were more stations available. I love news, classical music, bluegrass, and baseball (to start). Baseball is or seems to be completely unavailable. Really sad. More broadly, if you don't know the. CAll numbers of a station you're out of luck; they're not listed by offerings. Drat. Keep working on it, guys---this is a keeper. Just needs tweaking.
Good, but ads make the free version unusable
by PeterHinSF on 2017/11/26 04:04
Others have pointed out many good aspects of this app. I will only add this: The free version is not usable unless you're okay with ads popping up every time you change stations or every few taps as you search for new ones. Nothing is free, and I'm happy to pay for apps whether it's with reasonable ads or via an upgrade fee. But wow! As I explored this app the same ad kept popping up over and over and over and over, and I got more and more ticked off. I'd rather upgrade because I love the app and I want to support the app developer, not because the ads harass me into it, a la Pandora. That just makes me leave. My 2 cents.
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.
Last morning with radio DJ - wouldn’t connect
by Enterprise018 on 2018/11/15 13:35
I am so sorry to be that person but I was really disappointed this morning when the station wouldn’t connect. After nearly 50 years, the morning show DJ of 92.1 wdla is retiring after his show today. I was so excited when I saw you streamed the show, but after multiple attempts in the app and browser versions, it won’t connect. I was really looking forward to hearing his last show today. I know you are very busy, I was just disappointed today, especially after seeing all the great reviews it has. I also tried another station, and while it connected, nothing came through. This definitely could have been the station itself but it was frustrating.
Ads
by xgh on 2017/12/12 15:20
This is an app you'll pay for rather than put up with their obnoxious approach at shoving ads in your face. It's pretty much the same across all radio apps which appear to exist solely to collect on clicks. Compounding it for me was the ads were from ambulance chasing lawyers. They make me puke. I trashed the app after 3 ads got served up within less than my first 2 minutes with the app. Just a thought: Make sure you're paying because you want to use the app rather than get rid of the obnoxious ads. I've found with radio apps the basic app is nothing special and not worth any money (it's free in the music app and that one has a better interface and more functionality).
app lost the ability to run in the background
by t7hoang on 2019/01/14 17:19
I have been using this app for a while now, and I like it that I can listen to music around the world on it. Another reason I like is because I can play this app on the background while I browse the net or facebook. I also often lets music play on this app while I work. Today, it lost this capability. If i let my ipad idle and the screen goes black, the music shuts off; or if I use another app, the music also shuts off. This app demands the screen to be on all the time to work, which destroys the purpose of "radio" for me. I guess it is time to go back to Pandora or find another radio app. It is a pity since I really like this app.
My opinion
by Dayjahvou12 on 2017/11/26 05:24
You guys are doing a great job making our Yoruba language and songs to be heard where I am, I am about 5300 mikes away from home but I still feel I’m home. Thank you once again for this. But I have a suggestion. You play more of Sunny Ade’s song and even it is very repetitive, which makes me turn off the app at times when I’ve heard a song over and over again. You do Fela’s songs and some other ones, I will commend you on that. But Please also play music from other legends like Orlando Owoh, Ebenezer Obey etc. Thank you so much. God bless you all.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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...
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.
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.
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.
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 !
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.
Wish for more ststions
by Susan for ABQ on 2018/01/30 13:55
I was delighted to discover Simple Radio only a few weeks ago. It’s great and I am using it to listen to public radio shows in Albuquerque New Mexico, But only in the morning. That is the only time we have them. But the same station does have a rather extensive afternoon lineup only available on HD or in my car-which is a place I rarely am. Wish you were able to access those.
My go-to app got online streaming
by Olivedrabjunkie on 2017/07/31 04:31
Thus simple app is quite simply THE BEST radio streaming app yet! I live in a very rural area in the fringes of two major markets and all that programming caters to those cities. I listen to a lot of talk radio and my favorite stations are too far off for terrestrial reception but this app puts them within my reach. I love this app, simple, effective and it just works! I've got it loaded on my every Apple device. It's by far, the best!
One thing missing
by Mistik101 on 2018/08/05 01:06
I really love this app. I just started today and I love it. But there is just ONE thing missing. In some cars when you have the radio on, it tells you the name of the song that is playing. There has been a lot of times when a song came but I didn’t know the name of it and it sucked. So one thing I would like to see is to tell us the name of the song that is currently playing. I know it may be hard but that is just my suggestion.
Great app, as advertised!
by From Gregory on 2018/02/28 13:19
Sometimes you miss certain FM and AM stations u used to listen to but just aren’t close enough anymore to get them, well this fixes that problem. It has a ton of stations and more than I would ever be able to listen to. I have never had a problem using this app and use it daily; have been using for about a year now. Has great favorites option and more. Try it out.
Steep price
by MazeJack on 2018/03/16 16:26
The app itself is nice and works as it should. The reason I gave one star it is for the steep price to remove obnoxious adds. The part that I didn’t really like it is the fact that I can’t share my purchase with my family members on the shared purchase account and only one device can use the full version. Any other download is making me to pay $3.99 for in app purchase again to remove the adds. Pretty lame. Developer has no idea what I’m talking about in their response so I’m correct they overcharging for this heavily. Get rid off in app purchase and create separate pro version of this app to download then the purchase can be shared.
Excellent App 👍
by Wyoming John on 2018/04/09 16:38
I'd been using Tunein Radio for years; however, as it became more bloated over time, I finally deleted it and switched to Simple Radio. This app has access to all the stations I want to listen to, doesn't have the buffering problems, and other issues, that I had with the other app. As I found the ads in the free version annoying, I upgraded to the paid app.
I hadn’t noticed how much I use this app.
by Herbcat on 2018/01/11 21:33
I realized that this replaced the KPCC app for me at work. Their stream interrupts and drops a lot, but this is the only app that automatically reconnects. Not the developers fault, it happens with all streams and apps. I really couldn’t come up with a reason to hate it or avoid paying the $4, so thanks for the lightweight and completely unobtrusive app that is the most used and least noticed on my iPad.
Simple Radio
by FaithNGod on 2018/08/27 02:30
Simple Radio is the only way to connect to those out of state Radio stations that I love to listen to I just love his app wish I could have thought of it back in 2012 but it is what it is I’m just glad it’s out and i have it now I’m loving all of the newer upgrades it has gone through since I downloaded it back n 2014! Been telling my friends about it every since!
Easy and quick to listen to what you want!
by youcandohardthings on 2017/08/01 15:30
The steps to listen to your savwd station are as follows: 1. Open the app 2. Select the station you want to listen to. Within 5 seconds I'm listening. I've has radio apps that have so many adds, menus, rating systems, and other inhibiting features that I never gave a crap about. Simple Radio doesn't have any of that. Is like a breath of fresh air!
Great station.
by EllieKID57 on 2018/09/05 12:22
I’m so happy to listening every day. Mornings are so much fun and full of great news and people. Practically, every hour is very educational, and I appreciate the hard working people who are giving as very important and informational facts. It’s great to have a local radio station covering traffic, weather, news and great team to listen to. I thank you so much for letting us enjoy your programs. Regards, Ellie
Love this app
by vtvector on 2018/03/27 00:40
Simple radio stays connected to your streaming stations and has a user-friendly interface with the ability to edit your station list. What would earn it that fifth star would be the providing of song titles on the station icons, as other less worthy streaming apps do. I discover many new artists this way and would love to be able to identify these titles more easily. Keep up the good work!
Drop outs
by Happy cricket follower on 2018/01/16 14:08
Hi, I have been a great fan for some time and this has been my go to app for streaming. Last week or so it dies whenever I try to do something else on my phone which may have a sound. It never had this problem. Now it just goes to a blank white screen if it is interrupted for any reason. I have plenty memory on my phone so that’s not a conflict. Maybe a recent Apple update caused this? Hope it can be resolved. Thanks.
A great simple app
by Usagi76 on 2017/12/06 22:51
I love this app! It’s simple and straightforward and does what it’s supposed to do. Some reviewers have said that the stations cut out on them sometimes. I, however, haven’t experienced this. I usually listen to it at home using WiFi. I’ve lived all over the world. This app allows me to get reacquainted with some of the stations I used to listen to while living in other countries.
Great to hear public radio on my iPhone
by Thedudezuxo on 2017/09/20 18:29
Greatly appreciate this app Was looking for the one/app that receives actual radio signals, but this works great for me. Apparently our local public radio in NH doesn't submit its broadcast to Simple Radio. -- I'm listening now to VPR - Vermont Public Radio and I'll probably soon check out other stations too, but very very relieved and satisfied to get this station w great quality.
💜💜💜💜💜
by Chilianne on 2017/09/23 16:12
I love this app! I've been using it for a few months now and it's all I ever listen to. I'm far away from home [Mexico City] and this radio app provides all of my favorite stations from over there. During the earthquake it helped me keep me calm because I was able to listen to everything without any problems. Thank you for creating such an awesome app for free!
Sad and Disappointed
by Kat.Marie.Cosmetics on 2019/02/25 01:40
I am very disappointed. I got this app so I can listen to the same radio stations I get in my car or on my alarm clock while I clean around the house. This? Is not it. This shouldn’t even be a 4-5 star app! I can not get the ONE station I really got the app for! Thinking this app was for your car radio stations by your area...yeah, no; not happening. I found two stations that were decent and legitimate (from my area) so I’ll give it two stars instead of one. But other than that, where the hell is the ALT 103.7 in Dallas?!?
Simple, yet great!
by Graciepaciethelacedshoes on 2017/07/30 17:13
I never write a review, but this app is amazing! Not only do you listen to live music and you can change stations, there's stations in different countries and languages. It is also very easy to use. I also love how the jukebox feature is there, and you can save stations. I recommend this to ANYONE who wants to listen to the radio on their phone! :D
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Not all stations come up
by #400player on 2018/12/14 19:55
If you know the station Number and call letters your better off than a search . The sound is fair, has some crackling . Talk shows or news is the same with some cracking in back ground ! I'll keep app to hear my station while I'm on the go is why I recommend it and give it only 4 stars. Oh, you can get other country and languages if listed !

Frustrating
by Reds took on 2019/03/09 15:52
IPhone XS continually halts after 15 minutes or so, usually coincident with a popup ad. Requires one to hit the play icon to resume. I deleted the app and am happy with myTuner Radio instead.

Car Play does not work
by kms.us on 2019/03/09 05:35
This app supposedly supports car play. Tried it in two cars (BMW and Mercedes) using two different iPhones. In 90% of the cases when I select a station it just does not work. It never plays the station. TuneIn and mytuner work just fine. I reported this months ago and have seen many app updates but none of them fixed that. Very disappointing.
Paid for the premium and still get ads
by edvalerio on 2019/03/08 13:09
I really like the app and that is why I bought it with the promise to “unlock everything and remove ads” the problem is that I still get ads in the middle of a song as if I hadn’t paid for it. I hope the developer can solve this.
Sounds
by Maple leaf jake on 2019/03/06 23:15
I really do understand the need for ads, but having said that, what I question is the use of sounds with the ads on a radio app. And, a sound ad that is on before one has the opportunity to clear it. At times it appears that some of these ads are chosen for their ability to annoy and consequently buy the paid app version.
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Excellent.
by Dpizz@ on 2019/03/04 17:04
Just great. I love NPR from Washington, and Classic FM from the UK. I can listen to live news from Bakersfield California! The 3.99 payment is totally worth it, only a one time payment for ad free radio forever. very fast streaming, mild loading times. Love!!
Thanks

Seems that this latest update was not good. The app keeps shutting off after a few minutes. And if ur listening to a station and try to go to another app the app shuts down. What’s going on?!?
Still doesn’t work!
by MotherTrucker 24 on 2019/02/25 18:33
I wrote a review on this ap LAST YEAR regarding WKZO am590. The only reason I downloaded this ap was to be able to listen to the Detroit Tigers games, which I still cannot do. I received an email from the developer saying the issue was corrected, which I now have discovered was a false statement. There is still no sound aside from a high pitches ringing noise. I remain EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!
Sad and Disappointed
by Kat.Marie.Cosmetics on 2019/02/25 01:40
I am very disappointed. I got this app so I can listen to the same radio stations I get in my car or on my alarm clock while I clean around the house. This? Is not it. This shouldn’t even be a 4-5 star app! I can not get the ONE station I really got the app for! Thinking this app was for your car radio stations by your area...yeah, no; not happening. I found two stations that were decent and legitimate (from my area) so I’ll give it two stars instead of one. But other than that, where the hell is the ALT 103.7 in Dallas?!?

Garbage app
by Minion buster on 2019/02/21 11:33
Pop up ads are completely overwhelming. Don’t waste your time with this app. Navigating from station to station in search of a favorite song will trigger an ad within a few clicks. And every ad takes several clicks to close. List of jukebox stations is limited to only a few and some don’t even work anymore. Enough said, deleting this garbage app with no regrets.
Alarm Clock

This would be the PERFECT app if this it would allow me to wake up to the radio!! I’ve look for something like this for years, and I can’t find one that let’s you wake up to your radio program without falling asleep with this app on the front page.
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.

Maybe it’s my lack of knowledge about the app but it seems to be limiting unless you’re willing to pay for features that should be included in an app that purports to free. While I appreciate the opportunity to listen on my devices, the number of commercial advertisers should by itself be enough.

by esmith512 on 2019/02/12 05:33
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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
Works very well, but a few suggestions...

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.

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.

Great app--easy to use, and it works well!! Sometimes, a station loads, but cuts out once or several times in the first few minutes, sometimes for more than a minute. But once that's over, the connection with the station is pretty secure. Why 4 stars, then, and not 5? I wish there were more stations available. I love news, classical music, bluegrass, and baseball (to start). Baseball is or seems to be completely unavailable. Really sad. More broadly, if you don't know the. CAll numbers of a station you're out of luck; they're not listed by offerings. Drat. Keep working on it, guys---this is a keeper. Just needs tweaking.
Good, but ads make the free version unusable
by PeterHinSF on 2017/11/26 04:04
Others have pointed out many good aspects of this app. I will only add this: The free version is not usable unless you're okay with ads popping up every time you change stations or every few taps as you search for new ones. Nothing is free, and I'm happy to pay for apps whether it's with reasonable ads or via an upgrade fee. But wow! As I explored this app the same ad kept popping up over and over and over and over, and I got more and more ticked off. I'd rather upgrade because I love the app and I want to support the app developer, not because the ads harass me into it, a la Pandora. That just makes me leave. My 2 cents.
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.
Last morning with radio DJ - wouldn’t connect
by Enterprise018 on 2018/11/15 13:35
I am so sorry to be that person but I was really disappointed this morning when the station wouldn’t connect. After nearly 50 years, the morning show DJ of 92.1 wdla is retiring after his show today. I was so excited when I saw you streamed the show, but after multiple attempts in the app and browser versions, it won’t connect. I was really looking forward to hearing his last show today. I know you are very busy, I was just disappointed today, especially after seeing all the great reviews it has. I also tried another station, and while it connected, nothing came through. This definitely could have been the station itself but it was frustrating.
Ads
by xgh on 2017/12/12 15:20
This is an app you'll pay for rather than put up with their obnoxious approach at shoving ads in your face. It's pretty much the same across all radio apps which appear to exist solely to collect on clicks. Compounding it for me was the ads were from ambulance chasing lawyers. They make me puke. I trashed the app after 3 ads got served up within less than my first 2 minutes with the app. Just a thought: Make sure you're paying because you want to use the app rather than get rid of the obnoxious ads. I've found with radio apps the basic app is nothing special and not worth any money (it's free in the music app and that one has a better interface and more functionality).
app lost the ability to run in the background
by t7hoang on 2019/01/14 17:19
I have been using this app for a while now, and I like it that I can listen to music around the world on it. Another reason I like is because I can play this app on the background while I browse the net or facebook. I also often lets music play on this app while I work. Today, it lost this capability. If i let my ipad idle and the screen goes black, the music shuts off; or if I use another app, the music also shuts off. This app demands the screen to be on all the time to work, which destroys the purpose of "radio" for me. I guess it is time to go back to Pandora or find another radio app. It is a pity since I really like this app.
My opinion
by Dayjahvou12 on 2017/11/26 05:24
You guys are doing a great job making our Yoruba language and songs to be heard where I am, I am about 5300 mikes away from home but I still feel I’m home. Thank you once again for this. But I have a suggestion. You play more of Sunny Ade’s song and even it is very repetitive, which makes me turn off the app at times when I’ve heard a song over and over again. You do Fela’s songs and some other ones, I will commend you on that. But Please also play music from other legends like Orlando Owoh, Ebenezer Obey etc. Thank you so much. God bless you all.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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...
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.
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.
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.
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 !
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.
Wish for more ststions
by Susan for ABQ on 2018/01/30 13:55
I was delighted to discover Simple Radio only a few weeks ago. It’s great and I am using it to listen to public radio shows in Albuquerque New Mexico, But only in the morning. That is the only time we have them. But the same station does have a rather extensive afternoon lineup only available on HD or in my car-which is a place I rarely am. Wish you were able to access those.
My go-to app got online streaming
by Olivedrabjunkie on 2017/07/31 04:31
Thus simple app is quite simply THE BEST radio streaming app yet! I live in a very rural area in the fringes of two major markets and all that programming caters to those cities. I listen to a lot of talk radio and my favorite stations are too far off for terrestrial reception but this app puts them within my reach. I love this app, simple, effective and it just works! I've got it loaded on my every Apple device. It's by far, the best!
One thing missing
by Mistik101 on 2018/08/05 01:06
I really love this app. I just started today and I love it. But there is just ONE thing missing. In some cars when you have the radio on, it tells you the name of the song that is playing. There has been a lot of times when a song came but I didn’t know the name of it and it sucked. So one thing I would like to see is to tell us the name of the song that is currently playing. I know it may be hard but that is just my suggestion.
Great app, as advertised!
by From Gregory on 2018/02/28 13:19
Sometimes you miss certain FM and AM stations u used to listen to but just aren’t close enough anymore to get them, well this fixes that problem. It has a ton of stations and more than I would ever be able to listen to. I have never had a problem using this app and use it daily; have been using for about a year now. Has great favorites option and more. Try it out.
Steep price
by MazeJack on 2018/03/16 16:26
The app itself is nice and works as it should. The reason I gave one star it is for the steep price to remove obnoxious adds. The part that I didn’t really like it is the fact that I can’t share my purchase with my family members on the shared purchase account and only one device can use the full version. Any other download is making me to pay $3.99 for in app purchase again to remove the adds. Pretty lame. Developer has no idea what I’m talking about in their response so I’m correct they overcharging for this heavily. Get rid off in app purchase and create separate pro version of this app to download then the purchase can be shared.
Excellent App 👍
by Wyoming John on 2018/04/09 16:38
I'd been using Tunein Radio for years; however, as it became more bloated over time, I finally deleted it and switched to Simple Radio. This app has access to all the stations I want to listen to, doesn't have the buffering problems, and other issues, that I had with the other app. As I found the ads in the free version annoying, I upgraded to the paid app.
I hadn’t noticed how much I use this app.
by Herbcat on 2018/01/11 21:33
I realized that this replaced the KPCC app for me at work. Their stream interrupts and drops a lot, but this is the only app that automatically reconnects. Not the developers fault, it happens with all streams and apps. I really couldn’t come up with a reason to hate it or avoid paying the $4, so thanks for the lightweight and completely unobtrusive app that is the most used and least noticed on my iPad.
Simple Radio
by FaithNGod on 2018/08/27 02:30
Simple Radio is the only way to connect to those out of state Radio stations that I love to listen to I just love his app wish I could have thought of it back in 2012 but it is what it is I’m just glad it’s out and i have it now I’m loving all of the newer upgrades it has gone through since I downloaded it back n 2014! Been telling my friends about it every since!
Easy and quick to listen to what you want!
by youcandohardthings on 2017/08/01 15:30
The steps to listen to your savwd station are as follows: 1. Open the app 2. Select the station you want to listen to. Within 5 seconds I'm listening. I've has radio apps that have so many adds, menus, rating systems, and other inhibiting features that I never gave a crap about. Simple Radio doesn't have any of that. Is like a breath of fresh air!
Great station.
by EllieKID57 on 2018/09/05 12:22
I’m so happy to listening every day. Mornings are so much fun and full of great news and people. Practically, every hour is very educational, and I appreciate the hard working people who are giving as very important and informational facts. It’s great to have a local radio station covering traffic, weather, news and great team to listen to. I thank you so much for letting us enjoy your programs. Regards, Ellie
Love this app
by vtvector on 2018/03/27 00:40
Simple radio stays connected to your streaming stations and has a user-friendly interface with the ability to edit your station list. What would earn it that fifth star would be the providing of song titles on the station icons, as other less worthy streaming apps do. I discover many new artists this way and would love to be able to identify these titles more easily. Keep up the good work!
Drop outs
by Happy cricket follower on 2018/01/16 14:08
Hi, I have been a great fan for some time and this has been my go to app for streaming. Last week or so it dies whenever I try to do something else on my phone which may have a sound. It never had this problem. Now it just goes to a blank white screen if it is interrupted for any reason. I have plenty memory on my phone so that’s not a conflict. Maybe a recent Apple update caused this? Hope it can be resolved. Thanks.
A great simple app
by Usagi76 on 2017/12/06 22:51
I love this app! It’s simple and straightforward and does what it’s supposed to do. Some reviewers have said that the stations cut out on them sometimes. I, however, haven’t experienced this. I usually listen to it at home using WiFi. I’ve lived all over the world. This app allows me to get reacquainted with some of the stations I used to listen to while living in other countries.
Great to hear public radio on my iPhone
by Thedudezuxo on 2017/09/20 18:29
Greatly appreciate this app Was looking for the one/app that receives actual radio signals, but this works great for me. Apparently our local public radio in NH doesn't submit its broadcast to Simple Radio. -- I'm listening now to VPR - Vermont Public Radio and I'll probably soon check out other stations too, but very very relieved and satisfied to get this station w great quality.
💜💜💜💜💜
by Chilianne on 2017/09/23 16:12
I love this app! I've been using it for a few months now and it's all I ever listen to. I'm far away from home [Mexico City] and this radio app provides all of my favorite stations from over there. During the earthquake it helped me keep me calm because I was able to listen to everything without any problems. Thank you for creating such an awesome app for free!
Sad and Disappointed
by Kat.Marie.Cosmetics on 2019/02/25 01:40
I am very disappointed. I got this app so I can listen to the same radio stations I get in my car or on my alarm clock while I clean around the house. This? Is not it. This shouldn’t even be a 4-5 star app! I can not get the ONE station I really got the app for! Thinking this app was for your car radio stations by your area...yeah, no; not happening. I found two stations that were decent and legitimate (from my area) so I’ll give it two stars instead of one. But other than that, where the hell is the ALT 103.7 in Dallas?!?
Simple, yet great!
by Graciepaciethelacedshoes on 2017/07/30 17:13
I never write a review, but this app is amazing! Not only do you listen to live music and you can change stations, there's stations in different countries and languages. It is also very easy to use. I also love how the jukebox feature is there, and you can save stations. I recommend this to ANYONE who wants to listen to the radio on their phone! :D
Great app, but missing key feature
by C-Man on 2019/03/06 03:14
Love most about this app, simple interface, streams don’t drop, great suggestions. I like that it isn’t overly cluttered like most of the competitors. However I really wish the app had the ability to show the current artist/song. This seems like a basic functionality that is somehow missing from the app. If this were added, app would easily be 5 stars.
Not all stations come up
by #400player on 2018/12/14 19:55
If you know the station Number and call letters your better off than a search . The sound is fair, has some crackling . Talk shows or news is the same with some cracking in back ground ! I'll keep app to hear my station while I'm on the go is why I recommend it and give it only 4 stars. Oh, you can get other country and languages if listed !
