Customer Reviews

I’ve had this app since I had my 3G phone. It works great! I can get all my stations on one app. People! Get rid of that “other” radio app and get this one!!! It never disappoints!

Awesome!!!! 2015 and still the best

2015 and I still love this app great for OTR One the best radio apps on iPhone and customer service is spot on(: if you have a question dev answers and fixes and brings the stations you want ... This is the only radio app you will need 4 years with app and stilly favorite (-: 2014 8 years and still the best !!!!!!!! 2018

Love it!

I've had ooTunes forever and it's still the best internet radio player out there. Love the recording feature, fast fwd/rev options. I'm an internet broadcaster and I use this app All. The. Time. Get it now.

Phenomenal Radio App!

Fantastic for listening in general, and for creating your own personal podcasts and playlists in specific. Pause live radio when life interrupts. Schedule recordings for when you're away, and listen when you want. Works great on otherwise obsolete hardware and saves it from the landfill! Works fine on newest iOS. Very responsive developer!

Primitive alarm clock

The station features are okay, but the alarm clock features are primitive. For example, there’s no snooze feature. When you put the time on the display, it’s pretty plain (only white on black) with no brightness or size control. When the alarm goes off, there’s no buttons on this screen to turn off or snooze, which you would expect from an alarm clock. You need to go back to the main control screen to stop the station. There’s only one alarm setting (not a big deal for me). Overall the user interface is just primitive. I guess it’s usable (in a primitive sort of way) but I was disappointed. As for additional suggestions, a feature that gradually fades in the alarm volume is nice. Some sort of backup alarm when the internet station is not reachable (just some fixed little tune would do). With a better alarm features I would rate this app quite a bit higher.

Best radio/alarm app out there!

I've been using ooTunes for many years and love it!! Its alarm function is way better and easier to use than iHeartRadio's! It's so nice to be able to record what you hear and add markers for when you want to go back and listen to certain spots again later. Thank you, ooTunes!

Just GREAT!!!

I can’t say enough good about this app! I’m highly impressed and happy with it. The recording capability is definitely my favorite, also the many, many stations make it well worth the cost. Thank you and keep up the good work!!!

Best streaming app!

Love this app. Have had it on my phone and and I pad for serval years now. Much better then I-heart.

Great Radio App. Get any Station

I’ve owned this app since my first iPhone. Use it every day. A must have for radio junkies.

OOTunes Rules

Have been using this app since 2011. Thank you for providing me with years of world radio. ooTunes Radio is still #1 in my book. App installed on all my computer and devices.

My Go-to Streaming App

I’ve used this app every day for so many years that I can’t remember when I first downloaded it. When I stream any radio station, I use this first. The automatic recording is nice. The DVR functionality is essential for how listen, especially sine it does not have the 30-minute limit of others that even have this feature. The developer is very responsive. If your preferred station isn’t available, ask him. If you want to stream, check it out.

Not the best with AAC+ streams and no option to have stream Error go away automatically

When playing an AAC+ Stream, often the quality is lower than expected. However stopping and restarting the stream can fix it. In addition, if a stream for some reason stops playing, due to intermittent connection issue or other type of issues related airplay, an error message comes up and doesn’t go away automatically. It’s funny one free apps are used to do this automatically about you pay for it and you have to deal with mags!


Used to be good, now everything is comercial because you have to listen to their comercial plus the station comercial

Like it very much

I bought this app many years ago. It has become my go to radio app because it seems to have a great variety of stations. My only suggestion would be an interface refresh. Still, I am a satisfied customer. :-)

Waste of my time

Even though this app is not that costly, I would say, don't buy it. It is a waste of time and money. I just want to set up a time to record a program daily, and I thought that was what this app would deliver. Sadly, either I am not capable of doing this or the app is not great for this purpose. Very NOT INTUITIVE! Not only have I wasted my money, but I wasted my time trying to make it work; plus I missed the programs I wanted to record.

Great app & Great Support

This app is one of my favorite top 3 apps, I use it everyday to record radio programs which saves me money from not having to purchase radio subscriptions. Also the ability to save recordings and playback at any point is great. Solid as a rock , play the radio or recordings all day long with your iPads protective case closed with no drain on your battery charge.

Good update I didn't mind beta testing a bit

I am not certain how objective I can be as I was a beta tester for this update however I remember emailing the developer and asking about an update I used it on family sharing for a while but have just purchased it and I'm glad I did I do not mind putting a few jingles in the developers pocket as he makes the app accessible with voiceover which I appreciate however I would like to see a little improvement for the future versions of iOS in the dialogs and such that users are talking about my advice to those of you writing bad reviews would be to contact the app developer via the app support but he is receptive and does answer email so please do that I would be happy to help you

Great selection of feeds, iPad UI needs work

My main reason for purchasing this app is because of the large selection of feeds. That said - for a premium paid app, I would like to see a more refined UI (especially on the iPad). Would also love to see Apple Watch support...

Charging $5 for this outdated app is not acceptable

This app was designed for iOS 3 and 4. The previous time it was updated 5 years (!) ago (v.4.0.2) to support iOS 5. The current update 4.0.3 was done in February probably just to support launching the app in the recent iOS versions. The design of the app has not been changed since iOS 4. It absolutely looks terrible on iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro 12.9 (it officially supports iPad). The interface reminds me of the old Windows 3. Some dialog windows designed for mouse not for touch. It crashed at least once on my iPhone. Many streams fail to connect. Car Mode is a joke! This kind of apps should not be allowed in the App Store. They just generate revenue for these "developers" without them doing anything for years. And this is a $5 app!

Doesn't work

I paid $5 for this app so it would record a program I could not be awake for. I set it for the right time and number of hours. Yet today I have only a 3:42 recording at a random time and not what I wanted. Now I have missed the program that will not be replayed and I have wasted my money. If you're going to make people pay for your app the least you can do is make sure it WORKS.

Nice to see it's updated!

Nice to see this app got updated, I thought it was gone. It's my favorite radio app, which I haven't used for years. Hopefully they get to updating the UI for the iPhone 7 plus screen, then it will be a 5 star app!

Finally the update is here!!!

This is an awesome app, sometimes they take too much time to updated, but when they do everything works perfectly!!! Can't live without this app.

Not that great for me

I must be the only one, but the update seems to have bogged down connecting to channels I listen to frequently. Sometimes it won't connect at all or takes repeated attempts before a connection can be made. Still needs an update to the update IMHO.

please update

this app could use an update but really this is the best internet radio app out there it needs iphone 5 support though luckily i have a 4s but still pretty important to have an extensive update is long over due though because it has been over two years keep up the great work Steve. Wow!!! In 2011, I bought Tunein and it was great... for a while, that is. Once they started blocking stations, I went to Ootunes and never looked back. Even though an update was nonexistent for so long, I continued to use it because of the fact that I could stream almost any station I wanted and record live club broadcasts and mixshows. I also kept it around because Steve provided awesome customer service and gave me very doable work arounds to the bugs present within the app. I was presently surprised with this update and love all of the added features and long awaited bug fixes. Over seven years ago, I put my money where my mouth was as a radio nerd at age 13. With no update, even then so, I still kept it on my phone and used it every single day almost all the time. It was worth every cent and worth the wait.

The one out many!

Simply the best radio app available.

Finally Updated

Have been using this app since the iPhone 4, and at first it was excellent, though the five or so year lack of updates from the developers caused a lot of functions to no longer work. I continued to use though, as this app accesses real world stations available nowhere else. I was so happy to see this app on my update list- and even happier that the recording function is back!

Love it!!!

This app is just amazing. The new look is great and I love the fact that I can listen to basically any radio station around the world.

Fantastic Radio Station App

The most content in one place. You have to know how to search some, but if it's out there to stream, OO Tunes can pull it in. With the latest update in February 2017, the app seems to again fully function with Bluetooth controls. Thanks again to the developer for taking the time and energy to modernize.

Finally an update!!! A must get app for KROQ fans.

Best radio streaming app. I have been using this app since 2009. The last update was done in 2011, and it still seemed to work with latest iOS updates. Many features were not functioning, but the main just still worked. I don't remember being so excited for an update on an app until this one came out. Thank you for the update, at least I know this app is not dead. Please keep up with updates.


this update is great. been on my iphone for yrs. customer service is the best. as well as the app.

Perfect radio streaming app

Been using this for about 7 years now, even without an update it was still the best app out there for radio. Now with the recent update bringing it up to speed with the times it is excellent! Thanks

Wow! Worth the wait!

So I never write reviews, but I use ooTunes all the time, and now it's even better. Best radio app ever!

Working Again!

Over five years without an update between 2011 and early 2017 had left this app barely usable, with many of the advertised features no longer working, but it has finally been fixed and seems to be running smoothly. The interface is a bit clunky in some ways, but this is an excellent app for listening to and recording radio programs from around the world. I hope the developer is more conscientious about keeping it up to date in the future.

Best Streaming Radio App EVER

Been using this app for many years. Indispensable! Thanks for finally updating it!

Finally the update we've been waiting for!

I have used this app every day since I purchased it 5 or 6 years ago. The update allows pausing from the lock screen. This was the main feature I was waiting for. I will continue to use this app for years to come.

This App Is Fantastic!

I was proud and pleased to help test the latest version of OoTunes. I'm especially glad to see the return of the ability to say temporary recordings. The app has been and is totally accessible with VoiceOver! Great work!

A Stellar Update

The present update brings much excitement and anticipation to me. I have been a fan of Ootunes since it first came out. The App is unique in its conceptualization and this, apart from the fact that it works well, has played a large part in my sticking with it over the years. The ability to do a somewhat rudimentary edit to saved recordings is an added bonus in this update. However, it would help the user if some guidance is provided on how to use the editing feature. It took me 2 days to figure it out. The next update (hopefully in much less than 5 years) should include the ability to program recordings on different radio stations. Right now it appears that one can program future recordings on a single radio station only. The present update seems to have done away with the ability to choose from among different bit rates. It would help if listeners could choose the quality of a recording - for example lower quality for spoken word, as opposed to higher quality for music. All in all a fantastic update; rather late in coming, but most capable and very welcome. Thanks to the developer(s)!

Awesome doesn't explain this app

Worth every penny...

Most Used and Favorite App

My favorite app and has been for years since I had my 3GS. So glad it finally got an update because I use this thing daily.


I am happy to see a new update Best app keep it up

Thanks for the update!!!

I've used ooTunes for years as my Internet radio player. Simple and works great. Now it's been updated for control from lock screen and the slide up panel. Perfect.

New Update!

Thanks for updating the app!!! I use this app daily for at least 4 years and love it! Sleep timer works great!! Had issues in past with timer and developer was great and told me how to get by my issue!!!

Many great radio apps, but OoTunes is still better.

Wow! Could not believe it when this update came up on the queue, what a pleasant surprise. If I had to guess, I originally downloaded this app about 7 years ago and it hadn't been updated in about 5. As years passed by, updates became less regular, and phones were upgraded (used since 3G S), this app started to loose compatibility/functionality. Still, it worked just enough to be usable as of last week. This new update completely fills in the top and bottom black bars reminiscent of iPhones past. You can also pause and play in the lock screen! Other updates to be discovered. In my humble opinion, this app is not as polished as others, but the functionality of it is what sets this as King of Radio Apps. Just about any radio station around the world is here! If it's not just ask, most times it's up within a few hours. Oh and did I mention the recording feature? The best around. To the developer(s) in charge of this update, I say: "Thank you".

Perfect Again

The ootunes application is perfect. One can now edit and save recordings permanently again. Keep up the good work.


This is the BEST app out there hands down been using for 7yrs and i will NEVER anything else...


So great to see this app updated! I had been trying to piece together what this app does with iTuner, I heart radio and a few others...having this app back and reworked for ios10 is wonderful.

I'm back baby

I had stopped using the app because it didn't work for me very well anymore. I kept it on my phone, holding out hope that they would update one day. Today my wish came true! The update works great! Thanks!


This is the update thousands of us have been waiting for. The best radio app is BACK!!

The best radio app hands down.

Thanks for the update I refuse to used any other radio app for years. Now with this update definitely the best radio station app in the store.

Mahalo for updating the App

I have been using this App daily since I bought my first iPhone 3G. I was worried that Apple was going to delete because of no update! Lo and Behold, it was updated today. I am very happy! Mahalo (thank you) and Aloha
