Best US Radio Apps

Anyone who loves listening to music will want to be able to listen on the go, and online radio stations and their associated apps are the best way to do this. But with so many online radio stations to choose from, which ones do you add to your smartphone? Most popular radio stations have their own streaming apps.

If you have a favorite radio station, then choosing an app will be easy, but if you’re the sort of person who likes to switch regularly between stations, then finding a good app is a little trickier. Here are just a few for you to consider.

TuneIn Radio

The TuneIn Radio app offers you more than just a streaming service for a radio station. You can check out the catalog, which is filled with news broadcasts, audiobooks, and podcasts, as well as music. There is the option to choose an ad-free version with a subscription, but you get a free trial.


This radio app will prompt you to choose the types of music that you like when you open it the first time. This will then give you suggestions for radio stations that might suit you. You can accept or reject the suggestions or simply add local radio stations that you already like.

This is useful if you travel out of your local area and can only pick up the stations online. This also gives you the option to select music based on your mood or create your own playlists. The basic app is free to download, but if you want more flexibility with the app, there are subscription versions that may be more suitable.


This particular app has proved to be very popular because not only is it very easy to use, it also gives the user access to more than 50,000 radio stations located all over the world. It features online radio stations, podcasts, internet-only radio stations, and even FM radio services. It will help you to locate local radio stations.

One of the fun features is the option to set it up as your morning alarm, where it will wake you with your favorite station.
