Radio is Alive & Well!
I love listening to the radio while I'm bicycling, walking, mowing, or just relaxing in the backyard but finding a small portable radio you can carry in a pocket is a challenge. Thank goodness for TuneIn Radio!
99 cents turns your iPhone into a TuneIn portable radio with near perfect reception. Programming is transmitted over Internet and cellular networks so you can listen wherever you go. And TuneIn Radio is highly rated with a perfect 5-star rating based on over 5,000 user ratings.
All of your favorite AM & FM stations are there. TuneIn uses your location to make all of your local stations easy to find but there's so much more. Music, news, talk, sports, and podcasts from around the globe are all at your fingertips. Search by genre, location, or language and TuneIn even makes recommendations based on your personal listening habits. You can preset stations too. My Presets group has several Irish and Celtic stations I thoroughly enjoy.
TuneIn is feature-packed! Car Mode makes it easy to control your radio while traveling. You can program TuneIn Radio to record your favorite radio shows. My favorite feature is the Sleep Timer which I often use to listen to Celtic music as I drift off to sleep.
There is a free version if you want to test TuneIn Radio before buying. I used the free version for awhile but the full version is worth all 99 pennies!
