    Being online 24/7 can significantly augment your phone bill. No point in paying so much just to listen to the radio. Try an app that offers both online and offline service, so that you can catch traditional FM signals and get the latest news, even when there is no wifi close by.

    The 70s was one of the most iconic decades in music. However, it can be challenging to remember the name of the songs and artists after nearly 50 years. iHeart radio has multiple different 70s stations, playlist, and podcasts to help you rediscover some epic music.

    This app is great for listening to music. I love all the iHeart decades I listen to them all. You finally added iHeart 10. Ya. I also love listening to Valentine in the morning best morning show out there in my opinion of course. I do wish the full paid version was 10$ like apple’s. But I keep listening to the free version until that happens. Now to the only complaint I have you introduced podcasts okay I had never listened to nor cared about them until you started playing them then I found ComicBook nation and I was hooked. I have also found some really cool “radio dramas” but and here’s the problem I cannot listening to them in order with out opening the app after every podcast and selecting the next one otherwise it plays them in reverse order every time. Who wants to listen to a story backwards? I have played with the little arrows at the top of the podcast but that just reorders them on the list not the actual playing order. So I have unsubscribed from all of the podcasts that I am not caught up on until you fix is. Im not getting a ticket for being on my phone while driving just so I can hear a story I order. Love the app please fix this. Thank you for all you great work.

    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.

    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.
  • Subscription Sep 19, 2018

    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.

    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.
  • 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've been a customer for years, started off with the free option, then chose to upgrade. Just missed a payment due to my direct deposit being a day late, and now I'm trying to pay for it, and it won't let me. Tap upgrade, nothing happens. Tried to tap something that requires the upgrade, so the box pops up with update payment method, tap that, then it leads me to subscriptions on Google play, and iheartradio is not even listed. Will need this fixed or I'm switching music streaming services.

  • 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.

    I use this app for podcasts. I like that it syncs progress across devices usig my account. I find it frustrating to use when starting a podcast that has been around for a while from the beginning It seems to default to playing newer episodes first and working back in time, which doea not make sense. Also, the automatic downloads system does not understand that I want it to download the next several episodes from where I currently am in the series, so I have to handle downloads manually.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    Constantly crashing randomly on my phone and in the car. The app on the firestick about every hour just stops streaming live radio and I have to hit pause and play again. Also hit or miss wether or not it will play podcasts. I paid for the premium for one month and nothing changed. No reinstalling and clearing data does nothing, still sucks. Like another comment, idk how it has a 4.6. If there was another choice for streaming my favorite morning show live I would pay to switch

    Commercials, Commercials, Commercials! If you like Commercials, then this is the app for you. Every time I use the app, I have to FIRST LISTEN TO FIFTEEN COMMERCIALS before I actually get to the station. I upgraded to the plus service, but to no avail. I'm giving it two stars because after you manage to listen to all of the Commercials, it actually does what it should.

    When I first used this app it was amazing I loved it. As time progresses it gets worse and worse I was about to ditch this app when i got tired of how you play the same songs ten million times over ON THE SAME STATION Then you added playlist creation to plus members. So I create this playlist and find out that it's completely randomized I can't pick my starting point and there is trash songs "that you think I like based on my selections".Either force randomization or do the auto insert. NOT BOTH

    I used to love this app for many years but in the last couple months it's been taken over by ads!! There's long 2 ads every 2 (sometimes 3) songs. It also can't keep the genre anymore; my "Calming Piano Music" channel started playing whoever "Hasty, Geezy 409" is?! It's not calming piano, I'll tell you that much. I think my time with iHeartRadio has come to an end. It's been a nice few years.

    Not sure what is going on, but as of recently, when I use this app while listening on a Bluetooth device, it will suddenly start playing through the phone speaker instead of Bluetooth. My headset and phone shows it's still connected and will play other apps through Bluetooth, but iheartradio refuses. Once I disconnect and reconnect my headset it works fine for a while. It is only this app that randomly drops the Bluetooth connection. I don't even know how that's possible.
  • NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK. Jul 22, 2021

    By Foxmoon9❤️
    This was a great app. But then the new update screwed the app up REAL bad! Aren’t updates supposed to make apps better? Not worse? Now, it takes like 10 seconds to pause, which I know doesn’t sound like a lot, but when it’s filled with a song, it is. Also, literally whenever a song starts playing that I like, the app randomly force closes itself. Not to mention the app will not play songs I like after I run out of skips. I am 99% sure that that’s rigged. I also hate the new ads. I get you have to make money! I really do! But these ads are for stuff I don’t like, need, or want. No, ads, I don’t have a business and I don’t need help finding workers for my business! And no, ads, I don’t like true crime! Can’t I pick my interests, so I’d get ads that are actually worth my time? I give this three stars because you can fix this. Edit: Yay! The pause issue is fixed! Still, the other issues stand. You regain 1 star for fixing the pause issue. EDIT: NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK HALF THE TIME. 90% of the time it just gives me the iHeart Radio loading thing and doesn’t go to the part it’s supposed to go to. Thanks for nothing, iHeart Radio. Everybody reading this, DO NOT DOWNLOAD EVER. EDIT: I TRIED REJOINING MY WIFI, EVERYTHING. THIS TRASH YOU CALL AN APP DOESN’T EVEN WORK. NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS APP. UNTIL YOU FIX THIS ISSUE I AM LEAVING THIS REVIEW AS IT IS.
  • 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!

On top of that I emailed you months ago regarding regarding my Playlists self pausing after every song and your reps have no answers for me still to this day! C-ya!
  • 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.

    Being online 24/7 can significantly augment your phone bill. No point in paying so much just to listen to the radio. Try an app that offers both online and offline service, so that you can catch traditional FM signals and get the latest news, even when there is no wifi close by.

That’s frustrating to say the least but it’s not a deal breaker . Keep on making it as great as possible.
  • 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've been a customer for years, started off with the free option, then chose to upgrade. Just missed a payment due to my direct deposit being a day late, and now I'm trying to pay for it, and it won't let me. Tap upgrade, nothing happens. Tried to tap something that requires the upgrade, so the box pops up with update payment method, tap that, then it leads me to subscriptions on Google play, and iheartradio is not even listed. Will need this fixed or I'm switching music streaming services.
  • 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.

    I like this wonderful app. My friends and family use it. Keep the app doing good. Fix it where it can be used without WiFi. Fix it where I can add my Radio station please. It won't do it right. It needs to add new artist on it like The Bolton Brothers. I change radio Stations alot. Fix it where while I'm playing games on my phone 📱 it keeps playing. Keep improving this app.

    Still using it daily after 3 years, so I guess I love it. Could use some small improvements, music for the "artist radio" needs to have new stuff quicker, and the podcast pages really needs a search. I'm going through sysy and when I lose my place it's a bear to scroll through 5 years of shows.

  • American Top 40 with Casey Kasem! Aug 14, 2018

    By wxntrafficfan
    Back when I had my car, I was paying $30/month for Sirius XM expressly for the purpose of listening to one Casey Kasem show each week. Someone on Facebook had suggested that I login to iHeartRadio and simply search “Casey Kasem”, and I found a channel that streams just American Top 40 shows from the 70s and 80s 24/7! Being only 25, I was never able to listen to his shows live, and Casey had passed just as I started getting into his shows in 2014. I had previously only kept iHeartRadio on my iPhone and iPad to be able to stream a station out of Grand Rapids, Michigan in November and December each year when they switch to Christmas music. Needless to say, I stream American Top 40 through iHeartRadio at least 1-2 hours a day, and often listen to it for extended periods while at work. Thank you iHeartRadio for making it possible for me to listen to an icon I didn’t get to know until it was too late.

    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.
  • 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!

    I found my problem, somehow the subscription was thru Gmail account??? I don't use Gmail, but I understand android phones are based off Gmail. 🤔 Then I was able to cancel my subscription. 🙄 EARLIER POST: I'm still trying to cancel my Family Access Subscription. I just sent a second email to iHeart. If I don't hear back, I'll have to cancel my credit card because Google Pay keeps paying iHeart Radio even after I removed my credit card from Google Pay... Sad Day.
  • I love the content, but not the updates Dec 17, 2017

    By Sammich12
    I first got iHeartRadio on my old ipod on ios6 and I loved it. They had a setting where I could explore music or listen to mostly the same stuff. They did away with that and I miss it. Since then they’ve made the sleep timer harder to access, and everytime I open the app I’m baraged with an ad to try to upgrade to a paid version. I don’ mind seeing that maybe once a week, but I’m using other apps more because I get this annoying self add every time I open the app. It’s also harder to find the most recent radio stations I listen to. It keeps getting harder and harder with the new updates. Lastly, I love the play on start-up feature, but lately it doesn’t work (even when turned on in the settings) probably because of the ad I have to close out of. I’ve dug out my old ipod and I now mostly listen to iHeartRadio from that with whatever version ios6 can handle

    I love iHeartRadio 99.9 KSAB the best tejano music choices especially those who live on boarders of Texas because all you hear is music from Mexico (for those who like that music is great ) although born and raise with tejano/conjunto prefer 99.9 KSAB station I can have your station on all day and all night but....I never hear any stories from our Texas musicians from our original State “Texas” all I hear is other musicians from other states or countries on how they started there music which I hardly hear their kind of music on your station and I get annoyed when the same story is on night after night so if you read this and knowing I am a big fan of iHeartRadio 99.9 from Robstown Texas please get this message to the station I want to hear how Intocable or Little Joe or Elida Reyna and so on and so on started as musicians ...supporting our local and getting to know our famous musicians that are rocking the USA as we speak ...thank you
  • Great App - Playback Needs Work May 12, 2021

    By Willy0909
    Great app to be able to listen to any genre of music or listen to talk radio from anywhere in the world. Playback at times (and becoming more and more frequent) will repeat the same portion of a segment (no skip or scratch when it happens, so kudos for that) and will have to listen to the same portion of what was being said. Not certain if this is a buffering issue, but seems to only happen during talk radio programs. One pesky issue, when receiving a call, inadvertently stopping a talk radio show, commercials/ads will run again before getting back into the same station/program. Should be a way for the program to see that you have not left the station in order jump right back into the program, otherwise you miss a portion of the program that at times is vital to understanding the conversation.
  • So many songs I never wanted to hear Dec 20, 2017

    By LusitaniaAngel313
    So the only reason why I’m not ranking this 5 stars is my own favorites station. Before I had a pretty finite selection and I was cool with that! Now I’m flooded by songs I don’t really care for and it seems if I thumb them down, they return days later (example being Uptown Funk which I completely despise)! While yes the station will play some of the songs I do care for, once they switch to what they THINK I like, good luck getting my songs to play again. Also it annoys me when the same station flat out quits and won’t play anything! Like it ran out of content! Now I will admit this station has pulled some interesting surprises like pulling Jump by Rihanna to the station which made me happy as can be. I still listen wholeheartedly because where else can I blast CENTURIES into my ears? ;)
  • Overall, Satisfied Apr 14, 2020

    By D-Selb
    I do love IHeartRadio for the events they support and the music and podcasts they give a platform for. My only issue (it could very well just be myself overlooking a setting or something) is that if I am listening to the app and check a text or my phone locks after a few minutes, the app stops playing. Very annoying. I find myself often giving up on podcasts and just using my own personal music library or pandora when IHeartRadio continues to stop playing. I’ve check my settings in my phone as well as inside the iheartApp and haven’t seen anything indicating that I’m having a setting issue. Overall, I am happy, my only issue could be written off as a “first world problem” so truly, I don’t have anything really negative to say about IHeartRadio.
  • Better Than Radio Jan 25, 2018

    By Alphadogtucker
    I use this app every day. You can “create” “stations” that play music similar to your choice such as a band or style, although choices off the mainstrsam can be very limited. For example, if you choose Taiko, it won’t be long before Zaideco or Euro muzac is playing. IHR has a great selection of AM and FM radio stations. Great for listening to the news back home or that talk radio program that doesn’t play in your area. The trade-off here is the repetitive, ear-grating PSAs and ads that they play over the stations’ ads. If I could, I would pay the subscription price just to get rid of those awful PSAs. Don’t forget podcasts. IHR has a great collection with many categories. I listen to several about business and career skills. My favorites, though, are Ben Shapiro and Wretched Radio. Shapiro is a sharp political commentator who examines all sides and does not let party loyalty or ideology get in the way. Wretched Radio keeps you aware of movements and deviations from biblical Christianity but without the judgmentalism (except where it’s been earned). There are so many choices, it’s impossible to keep up. And you don’t have problems with interference or fading, as long as you have a good Internet connection.
  • Love this app, but the ads can be repetitive Dec 13, 2020

    By Flugelbread
    I have been listening to iHeart for years now, and I love it. However, I’ve noticed in the last year that sometimes I’ll go for a week or longer where I’ll get the exact same ad over and over again, once or twice (often twice in a row) EVERY ad break and it gets super annoying. Right now it’s for the “you down” podcast, which I can now guarantee I will NEVER listen to because I am so thoroughly irritated. I get why there are ads and I’m not complaining about that. A few months ago it was one particular political ad that was overly repetitive, and before that a Progressive insurance ad (at least those are funny!). Sometimes I get so fed up I turn it off. Still love iHeart, just hope they get the ads sorted out soon. 😄❤️
  • 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.

    I use this app for podcasts. I like that it syncs progress across devices usig my account. I find it frustrating to use when starting a podcast that has been around for a while from the beginning It seems to default to playing newer episodes first and working back in time, which doea not make sense. Also, the automatic downloads system does not understand that I want it to download the next several episodes from where I currently am in the series, so I have to handle downloads manually.
  • 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.
  • A lot of Positive-A lot of negative Dec 2, 2019

    By GKDimples
    Couldn’t be happier with content and stations. On the flip side, it will play the same ad over and over (consecutively) while there is a station break. Also, horrible experience with local employee. Two local stations, only, were not playing. I called in to local office and receptionist who you see to claim prizes answered and was horrific. Insisted it was not their office and problem was on my end and hung up. I called corporate who gave excellent customer service said the 2 stations I inquired about were in fact down. I called back the local station, to let her know what corporate said in case other people called in and she literally called me a liar. Hung up on me. I tried calling back numerous times and she literally would not say anything and would pick up phone and slam it down, during regular business hrs. Called corporate back in hopes my conversation with local was recorded. They were extremely friendly, and promised to address with mgmt but I never received a follow-up to their investigation, as requested.
  • I really do like this app but it could be better with minor fixes Jul 11, 2020

    By #1 Steve #1
    I listen to this app all the time and I love the concept but there are minor things that should be done to make it better. I love the podcasts but It does not seem to be fully compatible with I phone. The 11 pro is the first I phone I’ve ever had and I heart restarts or shuts off and won’t start replaying if I make or receive a call. I have to go into the app and start it back up. I’m disappointed with the selection of songs by some popular artists. Rammstein is very well known and played on I heart stations across the country. I am subscribed to the plus feature that you pay to be able to listen to full albums or save songs to play in your own playlist. They have 2 Rammstein albums neither of which include their popular songs. They have tons of crap bands and music no one listens to but lacking in music that is classic. There is no other way to make suggestions than write a review or I would’ve just contacted someone there with my feedback.
  • Preffered over Pandora Dec 23, 2017

    By Moe The Messenger
    I have used this app for about 3 years was pleased with the free version. I’ve seen it updated & pay for it to open up a few more features to find songs, some I can & some I can’t, but I pay the $5.99/month to repeat a single song once & some very limited song searching. I believed this app is good because I can mix genres of music & it’s intuitive enough to know when I need my gospel/Christian playlist vs. the other artists/songs that I’ve like in the past. It also offers suggestions & it doesn’t appear to be so commercialized, I repeat NOT a commercial distribution list of who you are forced to like. Some of my local/Independent artists have songs that I’m able to find. I’m thankful for that. I’m not an iTunes type of person. I hate I lost ALL of my music after switching from an iPhone 4 to iPhone 6s. It made my day to hear my own music that aren’t published on iTunes, so I’m glad to at least be able to search for the ones that I once had on here.
  • What happened? Mar 9, 2020

    By Krdurb
    I am split down the middle on my rating. I have been using iHeartRadio app for years and it has been one of my most used apps(Rovers Morning Glory brought me here) and I never rarely had issues before. In fact, I would have probably given it 5 stars before. My favorite thing about this app was that it would pause where I left off on a podcast and I could resume it as soon as I opened the app again. This was very convenient. But now, since I had deleted the app and reinstalled it recently, it doesn’t do that anymore. I guess I re-downloaded the updated version? If I have the podcast going, and, say I watch a video on Facebook real quick, when I return back to what I was listening to on the iHeartRadio app, it starts the show completely over, and I’m stuck fast forwarding back through a 3 hour podcast to try and find where I was. It is really annoying and getting to the point where I really don’t even want to bother with the app any longer.
  • Good but could be better Nov 16, 2017

    By RyanDred
    Honestly, this app is better than pandora. However, my main two issues with it are the dislike feature and the song selections when you choose a specific band or artist. 1. Dislike feature: The problem with it is that if you click the dislike button on a song, that same song will keep coming back later until you’ve disliked it 3-4 times. Then after about a month it’ll come back again 2. Band/artist song selection: My major issues with this feature is that when you choose a band you want to listen to, the app will play almost anything but that band/artist. For example, if you choose fallout boy the app will play a fallout boy song once in every ten songs or so. Therefore what is the point in being able to select an artist. Now I’m not saying I don’t want to hear things outside of the band/artist I have chosen, however, it would be nice to hear the chosen band/artist at least every other song or so.
  • Used to work better Nov 28, 2017

    By OriginalDino
    Before the last update, iHeartRadio would resume the last station I was listening to when it connected with my car’s bluetooth. After the previous update, I started having to hit the channel down button on my steering wheel to get it to start playing. Fine, whatever. But since the last update even that no longer works; I have to open the app and manually tap the specific station I want. Every. Single. Time. Also, since the last update, every time I start the station, I get a 30-second video ad. Uh, a VIDEO ad, on iHeart RADIO? Seems a bit self-defeating, especially since many of the video ads have no audio indication of what they are advertising. So I’ve just learned to turn the audio down to zero when first starting, until the word ADVERTISEMENT goes away from my radio display. I tried iHeartAuto once, thinking to would be better suited to what I wanted, but that app was completely hopeless.
  • Ghosts Playing With My Phone?? Oct 28, 2017

    By Tmama711
    I use this app every single day to listen to my local radio station morning show. I’ve never had an issue, always runs really smoothly, except for an occasional “dead air” or skip in the middle of a song. I don’t use it for much more, not even rating songs. Here’s my problem... I turn it off when I’m ready to walk out the door to go to work, and it randomly starts playing again. The app is completely turned off and closed. This happens several times a day. Even while I’m at work. I ended up deleting the app and reinstalled it hoping that would fix the problem. It didn’t. So I deleted it again to ensure that I wouldn’t be humiliated at work again by the random music playing from my purse. I download the app again because like I said, I listen to Elvis every single day but this is getting seriously old and annoying.
  • 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!

    Commercials, Commercials, Commercials! If you like Commercials, then this is the app for you. Every time I use the app, I have to FIRST LISTEN TO FIFTEEN COMMERCIALS before I actually get to the station. I upgraded to the plus service, but to no avail. I'm giving it two stars because after you manage to listen to all of the Commercials, it actually does what it should.

    Not sure what is going on, but as of recently, when I use this app while listening on a Bluetooth device, it will suddenly start playing through the phone speaker instead of Bluetooth. My headset and phone shows it's still connected and will play other apps through Bluetooth, but iheartradio refuses. Once I disconnect and reconnect my headset it works fine for a while. It is only this app that randomly drops the Bluetooth connection. I don't even know how that's possible.
  • 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.
  • Worst app for podcasts Oct 25, 2020

    By thetashalee
    Literally the clunkiest app I’ve ever used. If you can listen to your favorite podcasts on another app, do it! Unfortunately the Elvis Duran Show is owned by iHeartRadio, so I have to use this app to listen to their replay shows and podcasts. It takes forever just to open the app and get to the show I want to listen to. I keep the app open if I have to pause for a bit, and usually I try to come back later and listen... only to find that the app has closed itself and I have to go and search for the podcast I was listening to. A lot of times it doesn’t save my place, so I have to fast forward to where I was. This app has TRICKED ME into accidentally signing up for their premium, paid version by randomly bringing up the thumbprint authorization even after I had closed out of the ad. I’ve also tried listening to some of my favorite shows “live” and it constantly cuts out. I’ve had this app for years and despite going through many updates, it still is just NOT great. I don’t know how anyone can give it more than 3 stars. Either make my favorite shows available on the Apple podcasts app, or make this stupid app BETTER.

    Great music play selection but fails on technical issues & over burden ads with stations. If you listen with BT headsets, forget about giving a thumbs up to songs as it will drop the connection requiring you to go into BT setting to re-add headset. Forget about radio station side of app unless you like 20+ minutes of ads. Also connection issues with certain channels. I have not considered podcast because of these issues and there are better podcast apps.
  • Way too easy to accidentally subscribe Oct 15, 2018

    By brappleye3
    I haven't minded the iHeartRadio app and service and it generally works very well and it’s easy to use. However... I was listening to the radio while riding my bike recently, and pulled my phone out to change the station I was listening to, and somehow managed to accidentally subscribe to the “Plus” service while attempting to lock my phone after. Sorry, it shouldn’t be this easy to subscribe to your paid services, or if it is, it needs to be easier to reverse it immediately so I don’t have to live with a subscription/charges I don’t care to have. I didn’t bother to call Apple to have the charge removed since it seemed like a hassle hardly worth $6. I was able to discontinue the subscription in my Apple account so I won’t get recurring charges. It’s just frustrating that I managed to buy something I didn’t intend to. It should require a few steps to get to the purchase, especially for a recurring subscription! If it manages to happen again, you can bet I will stop using this app and find a different way to stream the stations I listen to.
  • The app slows everything down and even stops internet connection Sep 18, 2018

    By Jesuslovesme4ever
    I wanted to like IHeart Radio but every time, I download the app (which I have downloaded and re downloaded multiple times), it significantly slows my internet connection or even stops it. It also takes forever to load one song on the app and much can't be done on the app when a song is buffering. I even tried closing apps and deleting one or two apps and the app still slows everything down- a lot or even stops apps and the internet all together. Every time, I download the app, the internet stops working and as soon as I delete the app, everything on my phone works normally and fast again. I like that there is a decent selection to choose from (although it seems like Apple Music and Google Play have more variety in music) and the radio station selection is awesome. This app would be great if only the app didn't slow things down. I really wish this app worked. If only it were fast and didn't halt internet connection. I've never had these problems with any other music streaming app.
  • No respect, app is OK Dec 31, 2019

    By jeremy1069
    App is great but they have no respect for their listeners as far as radio stations go. None. Stations change format in the middle of the night, when listeners ask “Why” on Facebook or Twitter they’re deleted instantly. That’s how much respect iHeartradio has for their listeners. Zero. The radio stations get more generic and boring every year. The amount of time they spend playing commercials promoting this app could be literally used for something else more useful (Like real commercials that make real money or maybe a weather forecast) Beyond the bad radio stations, the app is pretty decent. Been using it since it came out around 2008 or so. Some of the other stations on this app are OK. Music streaming is nothing special. It has grown into a pretty decent Podcast platform in the last couple of years. There’s plenty to listen to. I do not believe they are “#1 for Podcasts” as they say on the radio over and over but I do believe they have a lot of them, which for people who listen to Podcasts (I rarely do) is a good thing.
  • Used to be great. Nov 13, 2019

    I’ve been having problems with the app as of recently. Radio stations work great but when listening to podcast, that’s where the problems start. First the playback order, I prefer to listen from old to newer ones just in case of two part episodes. Second after each episode I have to reopen the app to play the next episode since the app shuts down after ending an episode. And last the ads, it’s understandable why ads are needed but when you hear the same 30 second ad for 3 minutes straight and then again for another 1 or 2 when another episode starts. It gets really annoying. I have contacted them and got the general response of thanks for bringing it to their attention. This has been going on for almost 2 months. So now I’m stuck listening to out of order stories not understanding what is going on. Also the discontinuation of the watch app. It was better than using the native play to control the stations being played.

    Constantly crashing randomly on my phone and in the car. The app on the firestick about every hour just stops streaming live radio and I have to hit pause and play again. Also hit or miss wether or not it will play podcasts. I paid for the premium for one month and nothing changed. No reinstalling and clearing data does nothing, still sucks. Like another comment, idk how it has a 4.6. If there was another choice for streaming my favorite morning show live I would pay to switch

    When I first used this app it was amazing I loved it. As time progresses it gets worse and worse I was about to ditch this app when i got tired of how you play the same songs ten million times over ON THE SAME STATION Then you added playlist creation to plus members. So I create this playlist and find out that it's completely randomized I can't pick my starting point and there is trash songs "that you think I like based on my selections".Either force randomization or do the auto insert. NOT BOTH

    I used to love this app for many years but in the last couple months it's been taken over by ads!! There's long 2 ads every 2 (sometimes 3) songs. It also can't keep the genre anymore; my "Calming Piano Music" channel started playing whoever "Hasty, Geezy 409" is?! It's not calming piano, I'll tell you that much. I think my time with iHeartRadio has come to an end. It's been a nice few years.
  • NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK. Jul 22, 2021

    By Foxmoon9❤️
    This was a great app. But then the new update screwed the app up REAL bad! Aren’t updates supposed to make apps better? Not worse? Now, it takes like 10 seconds to pause, which I know doesn’t sound like a lot, but when it’s filled with a song, it is. Also, literally whenever a song starts playing that I like, the app randomly force closes itself. Not to mention the app will not play songs I like after I run out of skips. I am 99% sure that that’s rigged. I also hate the new ads. I get you have to make money! I really do! But these ads are for stuff I don’t like, need, or want. No, ads, I don’t have a business and I don’t need help finding workers for my business! And no, ads, I don’t like true crime! Can’t I pick my interests, so I’d get ads that are actually worth my time? I give this three stars because you can fix this. Edit: Yay! The pause issue is fixed! Still, the other issues stand. You regain 1 star for fixing the pause issue. EDIT: NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK HALF THE TIME. 90% of the time it just gives me the iHeart Radio loading thing and doesn’t go to the part it’s supposed to go to. Thanks for nothing, iHeart Radio. Everybody reading this, DO NOT DOWNLOAD EVER. EDIT: I TRIED REJOINING MY WIFI, EVERYTHING. THIS TRASH YOU CALL AN APP DOESN’T EVEN WORK. NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS APP. UNTIL YOU FIX THIS ISSUE I AM LEAVING THIS REVIEW AS IT IS.
  • 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!

    Why am I paying for "All Access" and still hearing ads? *UPDATE* Tried sending an email and no reply! Thanks iheart SPOTIFY sounds better and better to me every day!! Done paying you for a service that continues to play advertisements even if they are just iheart commercials. On top of that I emailed you months ago regarding regarding my Playlists self pausing after every song and your reps have no answers for me still to this day! C-ya!

    Randomly stopped allowing me to hear Indians games on either of the 2 stations they're played on. Did this before and I made sure my location was on and switched to using zip code and it started working again. Now it doesn't matter which I use, still won't play then even though I'm in market. One of the only 2 reasons I use the app.
  • WOW Apr 27, 2019

    By Darbie+doo
    I first got a iHeartRadio as a free app when I first got my mobile device. It was free it was fun and the music was good because I could listen to it anywhere. That was about three years ago, now so much of the free things have been replaced by paid services that if I want to change anything that I had set up three years ago I can’t do it unless I pay them their fees to change anything on my accounts. You really have to love progress. On top of that because my mobile device is constantly logged on it doesn’t recognize the passwords I set up before they changed their site so now when I go to login online to try and change things it doesn’t recognize me. It’s a blast trying to reset my passwords and prove I’m not a freaking robot, great job iHeartRadio. I think it’s pretty funny that I have to prove I’m not a robot to reset my password but they can send automated email responses to folks. I’ve had these kind of problems before and they’ll send a generated email that says hey look up these corresponding posts on the forums to see if they match your problems. It’s all fun and games until the autistic guy wants to talk to a person then everybody hides behind a computer screen, if you find this funny awesome, if you don’t, fix it. It’s just one guys opinion.

    DO NOT USE PRIMARY EMAIL ADDRESS Zero stars for the sheer amount of personal information they take, and sell. We're talking every aspect of your personal email, so use a junk email address for this app. Personally, working in tech has taught me never to keep apps like this on my device, period. I only re downloaded the app to write the review.
  • To download or Not to d/l ? May 23, 2018

    By cbry1188
    I was going to dl the iheartradio Free app & thought I would check out the reviews before doing so. I was quite intrigued by the various array of issues that people pointed out, so I kept reading... first few reviews, I saw the response to the Reviewer’s issues by iheartradio was that they wanted to resolve whatever issues they were having & to please contact (email) them, so they can further address the problem(s). I thought, “Wow, they really do want to make sure that the problem is resolved for that person & seem to be taking that extra step in doing so.” Then I kept reading....I would have to say that each & every review that I read, the response was always the same , “pls contact (email) us, so that we can look into this issue and help you resolve it. “ Then I realized, why wouldn’t they address the issue or at least write down a foot note to the review,addressing the outcome & HOW it was corrected!!! I decided NOT to dl the app at this time bc I’m not if all the issues written about were ADDRESSED & CORRECTED ?? It’s great that you guys address the concerns and ask people to contact you for help -but how about letting the rest of us reading the reviews know how things turned out? Were the issues corrected & MORE IMPORTANTLY, How??
