Customer Reviews

Love it!

Been a Groove Salad listener for over a decade, always loved it. Now with Apple CarPlay I can listen to it seamlessly while driving. I only wish Apple would allow SomaFM into their allowed apps to display on the car screen so I could use it from there. Not Soma's fault at all. Luckily CarPlay still displays what is playing. It has made my commute just a little bit sweeter. :)

Perfect app for Alternative Music

I was listening to Soma FM on my computer before I got my iPad and was psyched to find this app. I would give it ten stars if I could! I just wonder where they find all of this great alternative music and where I could get it, since iTunes doesn't usually have such music...

Works Across All Your Devices

Bought the app. Answered my own question: It runs on AppleTV, iPhone, iMac, and MBP.

The best music on the 'net in dozens of flavors, and all great.

Yes, it's a couple bucks, and you should send Soma a few bucks a month, too. Why? Because you're an adult, you're not a cheap loser, and to you, good things have value.
