AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
Pros & Cons:
- Listen to local streaming radio stations from around the country
- Search, Favorite, Tag, and get Lyrics for music from radio stations
- Long connection and buffer wait before music starts streaming (3+ minutes) :shocked:
iheartradio Android App is Clear Channel’s streaming radio station app for Android phones. Search, Favorite, Tag, Lyrics (if available), and Listen to local radio stations from around the country. Use the Randomizer feature to randomly deliver a radio station for listening.
Gripe Alert: You can multi-task with iheartradio, however there is no icon in the notification window so you can easily return like other stream music Android apps. A work-around is to Longpress the Home button then select iheartradio. I also wonder why GPS toggles so frequently with the app as well.
iheartradio Playing Station
iheartradio is great for listening to your favorite local radio stations when not near a radio like in the office, commuting or traveling.
Ease of Use:
There is painfully long connection and buffer time before any music starts with this app (3+ minutes in our evaluation). Many griped in the Android Market that it doesn’t work. Maybe more patience is needed… still it should not take that long to buffer. It was tested on 3G and Wi-Fi Internet connections. However when it is started, there is good audio quality and uninterrupted streams.
The user interface is sleek… very iPhone-like.. nice polish!
