Great on Apple TV and iPhone but not iPad

Jordan Dalzell

A radio app that works great across iOS and tvOS. Everything syncs with iCloud. Features include alarms, podcasts and weather. Reliable, tons of radio stations and a simplistic albeit dated UI. The player is based on the stock music app interface prior to iOS 10. Sure it makes the app feel dated but it works fine.

All is great unless you’re using an iPad. If you’re in landscape mode you get a digital clock and no way to access to the player controls. It gets annoying having to rotate my iPad almost everytime I use the app. That and implementing the iPad’s multitasking features, slide over and split view, would be much appreciated.

Overall, iPad issues aside, well worth the asking price. Having tried multiple radio apps I’ve settled with Receiver and use it daily and my iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

Good but misses important features.


Really really need to be able to report failing streams and be able to add my own podcast feeds. Unless this is here but hidden some how.
Also, on ATV needs to be able to show the rest of the podcast feed!!
Also to fave radio and podcasts you have to hit play then fave. Why not tap the i in the list and then have it there?
Got lots of stations though and seems the best for this on Apple TV. Syncing is also great, but please add the report and new podcast feeds.
Thanks for the reply. I understand as you're using an API to list someone else's streams it can be awkward, but you're customer facing so to speak.
Look forward to the new features and customer podcasts and what not. Keep yours the best radio player on ATV.

Thank you for your feedback. You are not missing anything. Regarding the report function: There´s a workaround for reporting a failing stream: On the player screen, use the sharing button, choose mail and send it with a short note to:
We are putting g both of your request to our feature request list.

Probably best radio app in the world!

This app in my estimation is on a par with and perhaps surpasses Tunein Radio. I would like to be able to categorise favourites and be able to make custom URL's favourite though. Fantastic work guys! I have it on all my Apple products.
