The new Premium Radio includes features such as ad free listening, replay songs or albums, create and manage playlists and song lyrics. And it allows for offline access to favorite songs on Android, iPad, Blackberry and more.

Android Resurrected The Radio Star: RadioTime for Android Reviewed

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android Software" @ 10:00 AM

Product Category: Streaming Audio Software
Manufacturer: RadioTime
Where to Buy: Search "RadioTime" in Android Marketplace
Price: $2.99
System Requirements: 3G Data connection for best results, can use EDGE if necessary.

Pros:

  • Great when you want to hear local radio from a distance;
  • Online synchronization with RadioTime account presets;
  • Efficient user interface.

Cons:

  • Lack of customization in-app;
  • Lack of trial version;
  • Some stations cannot be streamed in-app, but can be streamed on the web.

Summary: Sometimes you feel like going old-school with your streaming content. Why be burdened with music-only or a mostly-ad free podcast when you can hear terrestrial radio, the way it was meant to be heard, long ad-blocks and all. Seriously though, sometimes you just need to hear local radio, for either breaking news, local interest pieces, and more. RadioTime for Android fills this gap at a fairly low price. But how does this trial-less app match up on an actual device used by an actual Android Thoughts editor? Read on to find out more! Read more...
