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.
TuneIn Pro isn't perfect, but it's pretty close
Editors' note, July 8, 2015: See CNET's guide to Internet radio services for a more up-to-date evaluation of this service, along with an analysis of how it compares to competitors.
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.
