Tunein Radio Review

TuneIn RadioTunein Radio is an app very similar to Pandora and useful as iphone tracker apps.  While Pandora is strictly artist or music based Tunein Radio is a bit more complex. Tunein Radio can give you access to a variety of stations based on what you choose on the home screen.  You can listen to local stations, what’s  trending with other Tunein users, or just browse different music categories.  Tunein does have to compete with other radio apps, however, including the previously mentioned Pandora.  While Tunein might not be as well known, it does offer some amazing features that might draw in a new type of radio app crowd.  Tunein isn’t limited to just music either.  With tunein you can listen to news, sports, and even talk show stations.  Tunein Radio is an app for someone who wants variety.

Pros and Cons of Tunein Radio

Pros:

The Tunein Radio App is lots of fun and easy to use.  You can truly enjoy your favorite styles of music on the go.  If you’re looking for variety, this is also the right app for you.

The Tunein Radio App truly offers something new to the table for app users all over the world.

Cons:

The Tunein Radio App is a great app, and offers a lot of new experiences for app users, but many probably won’t give it a chance.  Pandora is already the top internet radio app.  Many people won’t even take the time to research other radio based Apps. Tunein Radio is based on a really unoriginal idea, although the app itself is fantastic.  The concept of radio stations on an app has been utilized by I<3Radio, 8tracks, and lots of other similar Apps. Tunein is great if you give it a chance, it offers a new touch to a not so new idea.
