TuneIn Radio is an amazing radio app that puts thousands of radio stations from all over the world in your hand. Catch the Boston Red Sox Game from San Francisco, or a recap of the New Zealand All Blacks game from Portland, Oregon. Not only can you tune into radio stations, you can find pre-recorded programs.
The car mode is extremely useful when listening in the car. With car mode, the buttons are bigger for easier viewing and use of touch commands. You can use the voice search function to minimize the use of your hands to operate TuneIn Radio. The voice search works well. I even tried to voice search for a hard to pronounce name like Jim Gaffigan, and TuneIn Radio found it.
TuneIn Radio allows for a large options of search criterias. Search by location, genre, artists, and languages.
Not all stations are available on TuneIn radio. A few of the popular stations in my local area are not available. The stations are still listed, but if you click on them, TuneIn radio will redirect you to a similar stations. If there isn’t an icon next to the station, it’s not available.
TuneIn radio may not completely replace a radio tuner for local radio stations, but it does a damn good job, unless your favorite radio stations aren’t available.
