CNET Editors' Rating

The Good TuneIn Radio Pro for Android has an impressive variety of programming, including more than 100,000 stations. DVR-like recording capabilities are a nice touch.

The Bad Performance bugs sometimes prevent you from playing stations.

The Bottom Line As a total package, TuneIn Radio Pro is one of the best streaming apps we've seen, if you can stomach the $10 price tag.

Editors' note, June 17, 2015: This review has been updated with new pricing information.

With its completely revamped interface, TuneIn Radio Pro for Android makes it easier than ever to listen to streaming radio while you're on the move. Not to be confused with an algorithm-driven service like Pandora, TuneIn lets you listen in on more than 100,000 AM/FM and Internet stations, plus 2 million on-demand programs from around the globe. It is, quite frankly, the best such streaming-radio app I've used. There is also a free (non-Pro) version of the app, but the Pro version offers DVR-like functions for $9.99.

From the Browse page, you can browse through local radio, recommended stations, different language offerings, sports stations like ESPN, podcasts, and so much more. Tap the Music button, and you'll get an exhaustive list of categories like Classical, Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Oldies. No matter which path you choose, you will be impressed by the number of different stations available through the app.
