    If you accidentally cancel your upgrade and try to go into upgrade it again it was a very hard process to do, I have been trying to do it for over a month now and I still have not been able to get it done. Nor has it charged my card so Its still giving me the free version instead of the upgraded version that I've been wanting to have again...

  • It’s good, could be fixed. Apr 9, 2021

    By Foxmoon9❤️
    This app is great. But then, you installed ads. Come on. I see the purpose of them, but they aren’t for things I like or need. Sometimes the ads interrupt my song, and they aren’t even helpful ads!! Pro tip: tap learn more. It’ll take you to Safari, then force close Safari, and you’re back at your song!! I don’t use any of these ads, and they give me thirty second long ads for podcasts I wouldn’t even like. Could you at least tailor the podcast ads to something I’d actually be interested in? That brings me to my next point. Why can’t I select my favorite genre of PODCAST like I can music? That way the podcast ads will actually be something I would like. And also, please only put ads when you change stations, because sometimes it’s an ad for something I wouldn’t even like, and then a song I don’t like! Also, it seems that after I run out of skips, it doesn’t play the songs I like. What?? Before I run out of skips it plays all the songs I’ve liked. After I run out of skips, it doesn’t play ANY of those songs! Also, the app unlikes songs that I’ve liked. I don’t enjoy this and it’s really annoying. I don’t know if this has been fixed, but it’s super annoying having to check if the song I’m listening to is liked or not. It’s still a good app though, despite flaws.

    I would have given it a five star BC I simply love being too listen to my home rock station when I'm working BC I work out of town most of time. But for some crazy reason lately it has started at 100% volume, even just now I got a head start on it and began working it down to about 60 % for it just to jump right back full blast even though I was holding down on volume button. Now I really can't explain how out why it would be turning down and almost to the half mark just for it to jump to the full volume while I'm still holding on the volume but this is not some thing that I can take or tolerate at 615 am nor will my boss's or work mates at this time in the morning and hell it could give some one a heart attack when u go from nor hearing a thing where a needle could be able to be heard hitting the floor. But you could say every one is awake today after this Bluetooth box going off. Please let me know what could and out can be done and if it's anything to do on my part in really sorry for not given the extra star but I had the volume working down for it to start over. Thanks and please have this fixed or fixed for me. Have no complaints about anything else so everyone download this app and listen to your favorite tubes so day and all the time for free.

  • Almost a One stop everything app Apr 5, 2021

    By DisneyLouisiana
    I’m a literal “radio head” . I soak up most of my local stations on a regular radio, and listen to almost every genre. I traveled a lot for work and would find great stations in other cities and states and would take note to listen to them again when I’d return. Now that technology is booming I can listen to almost every radio station ( some are on that other app) that I love . I use IHeartRadio daily. It’s great for pretty much all of your listening needs. The streaming stations they have created are great and you can build your own playlists or stations also. The podcasts are really good too and they have pretty much everything. The only issue I have is searching and it’s mostly podcasts. I can put the exact name of a podcast and it won’t show up. I’m an all access subscriber and It happens almost every time. The last one I searched for didn’t come up ,so I went to the website for that podcast and they had a button for IHeartRadio so I pushed it and it opened the app and went to the podcast. That’s frustrating to say the least but it’s not a deal breaker . Keep on making it as great as possible.

    This app has all kinds of issues. On 2 separate occasions it started playing edited songs. Which are garbage. Before this it would constantly play 2 songs at once. Today wWar Is The Answer by FFDP was playing edited. I used to give this 5 stars. Then I noticed it doesn't play half the song on my stations that it used to as well. I canceled my monthly subscription. It's playing the same few songs over and over. Can we get some variety and an app that plays the rite way?!

  • Was great on Windows Phone, new web app version six Dec 10, 2017

    By Nominally Normal
    Loved this app on my Windows Phone, installed it when I was forced to switch to iPhone (which has been an inferior user experience in almost every way - it can’t even do autocorrect as well as the WP, but I digress), and it was pretty similar throughout the fall of 2017... logged in today, December, to find everything changed. I can’t figure out how to get to my favorite artist-based station (can find artist in search, but there doesn’t seem to be a station option anymore?) can’t find the Recently Played Songs list once I’m playing a station. It’s fine to change things, but not in such an extreme way that it appears so nonsensical to even fairly on-top-of-things users that they can’t easily find the features that are important to them. I don’t know if it was a web app before, but it must be because I don’t recall downloading an update and everything is just a little off, not polished and smooth like a native app would be. I expected that sort of thing on a minority platform like WP, but it’s really disappointing to have a worse experience on a brand new iPhone. Anyway, this app is in need of some major organizing/UI changes before it can match the user experience of previous versions. If I have to put in hours curating my stations (which looks like the direction this is going), as opposed to having a variety of stations that are good, just need minor tweaks to be great, I’d might as well use Pandora!

    I like that it's part of Android Auto but last few nights.... I drive 25 to 30 minutes to work and I heard only ONE SONG on my favourite radio station at 9:30 pm. Not a heavy listening audience at this time. Way too many commercials that don't even pertain to me. I'm looking for something else. It's really too bad. A year ago I used to listen to a radio station in Florida and hear their weather forecast in our winter. Now that weather time slot has been replaced by more commercials.

    Downloaded this app just to review! My little sister has this as background noise, the music, to drown out the news of today's crazy world and what happens to pop outta no where? PODCASTS!? Why!? It says commercial free ON the stations she listens to! Yet, Iheart 90's, 20's have them now? What's happened? She wants music to escape this madness not wake up in the middle of the night to hear about it! I LOVE having free music and I'm grateful, please forgive me, but this isn't okay!

    I used to love Iheart, and listened to it most of the day at work. People ask me all the time what I was listening to. But lately it seems it is mostly mini pod cast. The commercials for them run so long and are repeated so often I just shut it off. If I pay for the service will I not get these annoying commercials. Because I HATE pod cast!

  • Subscription Sep 19, 2018

    By Funbro1
    I was charged $5.99 for a subscription that I was “tricked” into signing up for. I canceled the subscription within minutes of discovering that I had signed up for it, but ended up being charged anyway. I went to the online help on the iHeartRadio app to verify that my subscription was canceled and there is no unsubscribe button to hit. I then emailed iHeartRadio and received this response. “iHeartRadio Customer Support does not internally handle subscriptions processed through Apple. However, if you need to cancel your subscription, you can do so by following the procedure below:” I folloedthe procedure “below” only to get to a dead end. I sure hope I don’t get charged again, I guess I will have to open up a dispute through my credit card company at this point. In the future I will be very very careful what buttons that I tap. It’s a shame that the app gets updated and changes around so much that it is unfamiliar if you don’t use it every single day. Through the many updates I have also lost my favorite stations and my saved stations, and it gets really frustrating.

  • Subscription is too expensive Oct 6, 2018

    By StotkaGirls
    Almost but not quite 5🌟, would have kept my monthly subscription but it’s way too costly. For just radio I thought, but considering it’s only $15 or so it’s not that bad. It would be great for a disc jockey (DJ) or a wedding event you can actually set up your own play lists so it can just continue playing continuously. Unless you feel the need to have the DJ interact with you like your in a pub or event to interact with the crowd. I’m sure that if you had issues to where you didn’t have a DJ show up for work then this would work for most small town or small scale clubs that’s holding only 50/75 people or so. I will say that most of the time I am able to find just about anything I want to listen when I had the subscription. And I didn’t have to listen to commercials. It’s really nice cause if you are a big music fan who buys a lot of tracks per month then I would just personally purchase a subscription to the iHeartRadio app. It’s just that cool. But being that I don’t buy that much music and I just couldn’t see spending that kind of money per month.

  • I love this app except Feb 12, 2021

    By Caroline Carbaugh
    I really love iHeartRadio for the most part, although there is some strange thing when listening to songs I noticed something bizarre like there are some times where it lists artist incorrectly like I like to listen to American top 40 a lot and sometimes it says the harry styles song titles correct but it will say Francesca Schofield instead of Harry styles that is bizarre and thankfully I know with Harry styles but if somebody doesn’t know that and it could really play with their brains and thinking it is the wrong artist they could be deceived incorrectly. Just a thought for a future update besides that I like the app another thing to add is that every time you ask me to take your surveys I am unable to take them due to accessibility barriers of not being able to check agreeing or disagreeing. I have tried reporting it within the app and I am unable to do that due to some accessibility barriers and clicking the send button and many different other buttons so those are just things to think about your future updates thank you.

  • Great but one issue... Jun 4, 2019

    By Reviewer errrrr
    I am completely loving this app. Features that I love is that it plays in the background of any other app. This is the best especially when using Waze in the car. I can still get the verbal directions from waze and the volume of iHeartRadio goes lower but doesn’t shut off! Also, when I close the app mid podcast, the podcast restarts automatically upon returning to the app. This also continues playing when minimized and when the phone is locked. The only feature that I would love to see change is the order in which the podcasts play. Instead of going up the list, example #4 to #5, the podcasts will play going down the list from #5 to #4. This means that you have to physically go into the app and click on the next podcast on the list. This is something that I hate doing, particularly when driving as it’s dangerous! I would love for iHeartRadio to fix this issue so that I can play a podcast list, and let it run up the list without needing to reopen the app and physically tap the next on the list. Besides this issue, I love this app for podcasts!

  • Good App for streaming Jun 5, 2019

    By JLChaney's iPhone
    It really is a good app. On the plus side, it is efficient with band usage if you have a limited internet plan. It is stable, with good buffering (I have lousy internet in my area so this is vital to me). It has a lot of content, including podcasts galore that can be downloaded. The minus, for which I deduct the stars has been to do with the ads. (I know, I could subscribe, but the monthly is too high for what I am listening too. Maybe some day someone can develop some sort of tiered subscriptions for those of us who just listen to limited content). I listen to a 24 hr news show with commentary. I grew up listening to KFI640 Los Angeles every morning. I don’t begrudge iheart for slipping in a couple of ads here and there, but you step right over THE PROGRAM ITSELF! Your ads should step on top of their ads, not the program. I want the whole news, not just the commentary. That’s what I chose, and it infuriates me when you cut the program off for a crappy 7-11 add, for which I will NEVER set foot in as my blood pressure rises, every time I see the sign and am reminded it’s going to INTERRUPT the program I am listening to in the morning. Iheart could program the timing of their ads better than this.

    Overall, not a bad app if you pay...However, if your subscription ends and you don't renew within a few days, you're sol. When i try to access my library, or play only my songs, a pop-up reminds youyour subscription expired...but would you like to update payment form? When you click on it you are taken to the Google play store (androids anyway) where they promptly tell you that you have no active subscriptions, nor offers any way to renew an old one....

  • Good App (Usually...) Jan 5, 2018

    By Rosemaryadventure23
    Edit: It seems like all of the other problems I list below are gone now, due to the fact that I can’t get the app to play ANY music now. None of my stations work, they all constantly have a loading symbol, and where the artist’s other songs/info are, it says, “Artist Profile is not available at this time”. The app is completely useless to me at this point because it doesn’t do anything, and this started today only a few hours ago. This can’t be a phone problem because I have the latest iOS on a brand new iPhone 8. I’m hoping this will be fixed soon. I've used this app for a few years, and I've discovered many new artists and songs through this app. However, I've been experiencing a few problems lately. My biggest problem is that sometimes the app will refresh in the middle of a song, and not just pause it, but get rid of the song completely. I'm not sure if I can fix this in my phone settings or if it's an app issue, but this has never happened before. Another issue is that some ads with sound play at the same time as a song, which is obviously annoying. Overall, it is a good app and does what it promises, but with a few bugs.

I understand ads help keep it free but last year I could listen to a good bit of music before being interrupted. But now I hear about podcasts (which are very long ads for them), Netflix and local ads for my area that go on and on! I even subscribed hoping that would slow them down but nope!!! Still tons of commercials. Give me music!!!! Very frustrating 😑

  • Super inconsistent Jul 7, 2019

    By DigitalDCH
    I use this app because it gives me access to older podcasts than apple’s podcast app does, but this app is absolutely infuriating! Sometimes the controls will be available from the home screen or the control center, but not always. Sometimes the controls have play/pause, skip forward 30s and skip backward 15s, but sometimes it’s play/pause, skip forward 30s and 3 bars that allow you to skip to the next/last podcast and maybe remove it from your list of favorites (can’t remember the last feature). The fact that the app isn’t always recognized as playing means that I can’t use my headphone shortcuts to play/pause like I normally do, and have to go in to open the app if I want to pause, which is super inconvenient when someone comes in to talk to you but you’re listening to a podcast and have to dig around to finally make the app pause and by that point you’ve either missed an indeterminate amount of podcast or you’ve missed half of what the person was saying to you. Overall this seems like something that an app developer whose primary focus is audio should be really on top of, and it is pretty poor development not to have this figured out in my opinion.

  • It’s all about the money Sep 15, 2019

    By Chief Colorado
    I really thought I’d struck gold when i-heart radio was commercial free without a fee. Then it happened, they now charge for commercial free and the free station is littered with commercials that are louder and obnoxious in between the music I love to listen to each day. It’s sad it’s about the money and nothing is sacred anymore without a profit motive. The commercials can’t be manually jumped over and they are louder than the volume of the music. They interfere with atmosphere of the songs being played. I manually reduced the volume so I don’t have to listen to the drivel of each commercial played. Then they put you through a torturous video commercial at startup before you get to listen to your favorite music. Honestly, I can’t even remember one of their commercial sponsors except for the monotone , “Cars for kids “ that I muted until it goes over. We are so mercifully pelted with commercials these days that I don’t honestly remember any commercial I hear. If I’m going to by something, I use a search engine to find what I’m in need of and not brainwashed into buying something from an obnoxious repetitive commercial. If anything, I’m repelled by the commercials and boycott their products. Thank you for the opportunity to vent my displeasure with today’s technology held hostage by advertising ad-nauseum. Yuck!
