What is it about?
If you don't want to rely on iHeartRadio to bring you local radio stations on your iOS device, then you might find yourself limited. Few apps aggregate all of the other radio stations streaming coverage, but the NextRadio app comes as close to unlocking the FM chip in your iPhone as you'll probably get.
For those who...
- love radio
- wish they could use the FM radio chips in their iPhones
Not for those who...
- never listen to local radio stations
- don't use their iOS devices to listen to music
Why we love it
When you are nostalgic for home far away, you might want to listen to your favorite local radio stations. NextRadio makes that easy. While it focuses on the radio frequencies closest to you, an excellent search function makes it easy to find other stations. Just type in the frequency, station broadcast letters, city, or station name. You'll get a list of radio stations, and you can choose your favorite. When you hear a song you love, NextRadio makes it easy to buy that tune. Just tap the three dots in the middle of the Now Playing window, and you can like, dislike, or buy the track on iTunes. Apple Music might do a fine job of helping with music discovery, but it misses out on the local flavor of what's hot close to home. With NextRadio, you can listen to your nearest and dearest radio stations and keep up on what's popular at home as well as throughout the nation and world.
