5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! March 23, 2011
This program is incredibly easy to use, and allows you to listen to local, national, and even international radio stations through this program. You can look up stations either by location or by genre, but you can easily create a list of bookmarks of favorite stations instead of having to browse each time.

The audio quality is superb, and there is almost no loading/buffering time. It hasn't once dropped the station once playback began, which I can't say about some of the other programs I've tried.

Some might be wondering whether this is necessary if they have Pandora installed on their phones. This is! Pandora is great for discovering new music, but this streams not only music stations, but talk radio, too. Similarly, if your phone came pre-installed with a radio chip, this is still a great app because it allows you to listen to many radio stations around the world.

This program is really a pleasure to use: its user interface is very intuitive, its audio quality is very impressive, and there is a wide range of radio stations available. I am running this on a Droid 2 Global running Froyo and have never had any problems with the program freezing or crashing. I strongly recommend this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice radio November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
Nice Radio but watch the Radio settings.
I installed it on my new Kindle Fire. It ran great until the station was changing because it was in shake mode. Please do yourself a favor and change the Apps settings so that it does not do shake mode for changing the stations. This setting stays on even after the app is shut off or removed. It will interfere with the running of the Kindle Fire. Any movement of the Fire will reset the screen, and apps. Books will not open. Hard reset will not work. Device settings will open but will not correct the problem unless you remove everything by resetting to factory defaults.
I reinstalled it and it seems to work again.
Other than that. Its a likeable App.

There was a station I wanted to hear in my area, however, had a hard time getting a signal to it. I recently bought a COBY 7015 PC Tablet and saw this FREE app available.

Needless to say, it has turned my PC Tablet into a glorified radio! I live in RI and radio around here is just filled with garbage talk radio and other current musical junk. I was also looking to pull in some christian rock stations. Well, this app pulls in GREAT radio stations from all around the globe and internet stations! This app would be great for someone who has moved and misses their favorite radio station--You can get it here! You can search for it by their broadcast letters! You can also get AWESOME stations from a site called AUDIOCREAM--they have stations that just play songs for a particular year--for example--f you wanna listen to songs just from your high school senior year, just type in something like "1984 hits" and you can get the station!

If you wanna find a station that is currently playing a song by a certain artist, just type in the name of the artist, and this app will find you stations that are playing their songs! Wanna just listen to 80's hairbands--just type in that search and you get tons of stations that just play that genre of music. Another great thing about TUNEIN is there are MANY noncommercial stations..I sooo can't stand when a DJ is talking right up to when the vocalist begins to sing on a song (92 Pro FM is THE WORST for this!). It also has a save presets function, for when you like a station, you can save it to this feature!

Like I said, I used to love listening to the radio, by the area that I live in doesn't have anything that great listen to (except for 1 station: 95.5 wbru--but I don't always wanna listen to alternative rock)--with TUNEIN, and the HUGE variety it offers, you will NEVER be able to say "there's nothing good on the radio" again!

3.0 out of 5 stars App got bigger not smaller February 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
Version 5.2 occupied 3.7 mb of main memory so I was pleased to see version 5.3 is advertised as requiring only 2.2 mb. But after installing the upgrade, I was dismayed to see that the most recent version takes up 4.5mb instead. At least support moving the app to the sd card.
Otherwise, the only problem is that the radio stops playing about 5 minutes after the screen turns off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works well, but refuses to shut down properly. June 15, 2012
There are lots of glowing reviews for the good things this software does, so I will post the main reason for my three star review:

The TuneIn Radio software does not shut down properly.

Regardless of whether I click the "back" button on my Droid Charge (which ends most applications), or press Exit in the TuneIn Radio menu, the program remains running in the background, consuming precious battery power. I am forced to fire up a task manager to kill the application.

The other incredibly frustrating issue with the program is that, even after I have used a task manager to forcefully kill the app., the app. occasionally restarts itself in the background.

Fix those two issues and it's a five star application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it on my Kindle Fire January 9, 2012
By rdaix
Verified Purchase
Oddly enough, the stereo in my bedroom cannot get a strong radio connection, but now I don't have to worry about it since I have this awesome app. I just connect my Kindle to my stereo and then tune into my favorite local stations. I also like that it can run in the background while I use my Kindle to surf the internet or use other apps.

Incredible restrictions are geographical restrictions
I am puzzled as to why there are geographical restrictions on Tune in radio for my Kindle Fire. I am able to listen to it on my iPad and laptop so why not my Kindle???
