Customer Reviews

Great radio app!

Bought this to see if it would replace my old radio alarm clock. The radio is first rate on my favourites for waking (Classic FM and R4). Only niggle is the lack of a dial for setting minutes on the alarm. I seem to be able to move minute setting around by 5 mins by tapping the screen, but it could be easier with a minute dial to match the hour one. Landscape view of screen as well would make it 5 stars.

Frustrated with another Radio App

My Wi Fi is not the best, it does not reach everywhere with a strong signal. I have just tried this, and even at the beginning, it seems more solid.

It s significantly better than the previous app I was using.

Don't wait. Download it.

Lots on offer.

As a student, I use this to play in the background during assignments. Quite a good variety of stations and genres for every mood and is available on both iPhones and iPads.
