Customer Reviews

One of the best but more improvements would be great

One of the best UK radio streaming apps with the majority of licensed broadcast stations listed (but not all).

Mobile data streaming bitrate noticeably lower (poor!) than over wifi, even with HQ selected. I should be able to choose if I want to use a bit more of my 4G large data allowance!

Not enough favourite slots.

Resuming streams after loss of signal is hit and miss.

TuneIn for its *many* faults does a better job of HQ streams and resuming streams more reliably.

CarPlay interface:- would be nice to change stations more easily. RW/FF on live streams is less useful. I don't think 2 more buttons to switch stations would be a massive UI disaster.

Otherwise, far better than most radio apps.


I love this app. THE best radio app I have used.

A very comprehensive list of radio stations from the UK. Clear as a bell to listen to.

I wake up to this app every morning and love the selection and the ease in which I can switch between stations.

I have told so many people about this app as it saves you the hassle of have a different app for all the different radio stations out there and there are LOTS of them.

Can't believe this app is free. That's not to say I want it to be a paid app cause I don't.

Just keep it the way it is and keep up the good work guys.

Try it, you won't be disappointed. I promise you that much.

Absolutely great app. And I love the way I can put my favourite stations into an order, I haven't got to hunt for them. I just love it. Best app by far.
And also,,, a big plus, if I miss a show, I can go to catch up, and listen anytime, or as many times that I want. Also play it through my home music centre.
