My Thoughts on TuneIn Radio

It’s one
thing to have simple access to local radio stations from around your current
location, but TuneIn Radio expands this be letting you listen to music from
around the entire world, as well as find stations by many different genres,
which is really nice.

I also
love that you can login to TuneIn Radio from a computer as well as from the app
so that all your favorite stations follow you wherever you go.

Most
music apps will display advertisements either while you’re listening or on the
top/bottom of the app. TuneIn Radio doesn’t have any such ads, which makes the
whole experience even better.
