The only radio app you'll need.
A great radio! - *****
I don't give out 5 stars usually, but this App deserves it. It's simple, does what it says, and the sound quality is very impressive :) Thumbs up!

What's New in Version 3.1
- iOS 9 support
I mainly use this App to listen to Radio 4 and listen to it each morning while getting ready for the day. The sound is very clear but does fade when a notification is sent to me but this is only natural as it is allowing me to hear them. I have used other stations as well and the reception is always clear. A great asset to me and cheaper than having to keep changing batteries in my bathroom radio. I highly recommend this Radio App.
Great app but can be fiddly
I have been happy with this app, especially the range of stations covered, though now and then the alarm doesn't work. However, the most recent update (iPhone 6) overlays the on/off button on the times, causing them to change, as you hit the time and the on/off at the same time. You do need to check this each time.
Great free app :)
Does exactly what you'd expect-works faultlessly when you have data or wifi even when my Apple TV won't play internet radio at home. Yes you do get ads for the developers other apps but this is a minor inconvenience considering you've not paid for this. Recommended.
