The TuneIn Radio App
While I don’t listen to the radio particularly often, TuneIn Radio is one of the best developed apps I have used, and therefore one of my favourite apps. The app developers have added every functional detail imaginable in a radio app. It has the option to listen to national and local radio stations from all over the world, and all on the go. It can display digital playlist and schedule information like a physical digital radio, and it lets you share this information through various social networks. The app developers have also implemented a function that uses the phone’s memory to temporarily store the broadcast, allowing the user to pause and rewind live radio. Additionally, it has easily accessible links to each radio station’s web page and twitter feed, that are very useful for interacting with the radio station.
These are only a few of the features, but the app development has been done so well that they have created an incredibly intuitive and clutter-free user interface while sustaining a large variety of content. The app designers have made it fit in visually with iOS, but with it’s own individual simplistic flair. I would say that this is a model app. The only downside being that the TuneIn Radio doesnt provide individual brand recognition for your radio station.
