What I Like About TuneIn Radio App
I like the fact that I can select any location I want. Not all cities or towns have an amazingly entertaining radio station. Some even don’t have one. This is where the location feature comes handy. I can listen to radio stations like Rock 108 or 98 Rock even from small towns in Iowa or Charleston. Moreover, If I miss something while listening to the radio, I can also rewind and fast forward by 30 seconds.
What I Don’t Like About TuneIn Radio App
However great this app is, there is one downside to it. Sometimes, it just stops streaming without any reason. In such a case, I have to restart the app or press pause and press play again. I wish the developers of TuneIn fix this issue soon.
I recommend the TuneIn radio app to anyone who loves listening to podcasts. Podcasts are informative and entertaining at the same time. Also, you can make the most of the free music stations while on the road.
TuneIn Radio is available for free of cost. For advanced users, there is a pro version available (on a subscription basis).
