    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.

  • 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.
  • Subscription is too expensive Oct 6, 2018

    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.
  • 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.

  • Love iHeartRadio and stuff to blow your mind Oct 23, 2020

    By scooter 501
    I really enjoy listening while working or just enjoying the show. Because I’m a new listener I do find it hard to navigate around the “Stuff” material. The list is so long that I find myself getting lost in the scrolling. It would be very helpful to divide the listening segments into groups, such as years of dates. That way you could find your place easier. I have recommended the show to friends but they all have trouble finding a particular podcast that I recommended. I also find it interesting that the earlier segments that date from 2010, which were hosted by a guy and gal had a different point of view than the more recent segments hosted by the two guys. (Sorry they are great but I can’t remember their names) I enjoy the male point of view that comes across but the difference is noticeable to me. Maybe they could throw in a female cohost once in a while.
  • 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!

    Algorithm has problems. I turned on the Santiano station because I wanted to hear them specifically. In 3 hours of this station, the app played all of 3 Santiano songs. What else played? Bon Jovi, Queen, ACDC, and Fall Out Boy. Great bands, yes. But I'd like to hear the bands I've selected please. Or at least bands actually similar to Santiano.
  • Podcast playback could be better Apr 15, 2020

    By Arrowhead Chief
    I recently jumped from apple’s podcast system to this to hear my favorite radio podcast John and Ken because iHeart stopped having the Friday show on the Apple podcast stream. A move to get you to the iHeart app. Well I’m here and the podcast features are not that robust. The per episode playback order always goes newest to oldest and you can’t turn it the other way around. For catching up you have to remember that or you end up hearing the show out of order which is annoying if you just let the run to the next episode. No sleep timer available which helps you not run into other shows if you fall asleep listening. I got through eight episodes that way in one night. The skip features could be better and should be configurable. Get the settings better and I’ll rate you higher. Radio play of live content is great. Sound is clear.
  • 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!

    The version on device is up to date. The device is less than a year old. It crashes often - like just stops in middle of broadcast. Often cuts top of the hour news short - usually during the weather it just jumps to a commercial. Constantly asks user to upgrade to premium. Since this review originally posted, it has crashed about a half dozen times. All these problems are relatively new. Needs quite a bit of improvement... Still very unstable. It crashes more than any other app I use.

    They play more artists that im not crazy about than ones that i really like. i dont like that, which means i just need to listen to my own playlist. Gotta search and find what i like and add to playlist. Eh. Their suggestions not so good. Already cancelled and going somewhere else when this month runs out. Oh my they suck at picking out what i like. They keep playing same sheet over and over that i dont really like. They are no good. They keep playing things ive given thumbs down. Pathetic.

    It used to be much better, but the commercials are getting longer and more frequent. I feel I should get more from an app that has this many commercials, but 6 skips per day, thumbs down doesn't mean you don't hear the song (sound of silence by disturbed), and you can't pick you songs or replay a song without paying. Youtube is free, I get to pick my songs and replay or choose my song at will, and can skip quite a few commercials.

    Glitchy as all hell. Randomly disconnects from whatever device I am broadcasting to, randomly starts playing if I don't force close the app, randomly takes over when I connect to Bluetooth, crashes constantly. I do not have these problems with literally any other app I use. I can't comprehend how such a massive company that has so many resources can make such a poor app. Also, why do you need to advertise to keep it free when I am listening to one of the 855 radio stations you own?

    By Dave Torres
    I've used this app for years and I've never had so many problems with it. It's asking for background running permissions yet it doesn't allow me to provide such options and it stops after about every song. This is ridiculous. This seems like it should be a simple fix and it is fairly recent. Maybe the last 2 or 3 months and it also appears others are having the same issues. Please resolve this. I used to love this platform.

    Not a bad app but I am sick of hearing the same commercial for Obama care over and over. This morning they played the same damn commercial 8 times back to back not once but 4 times in less than an hour. And it's been like this everyday for the past couple of weeks. Time to delete this app.

    So. Much. Buffering. Not worth my time. It would be nice to stream it on my phone so I can listen in my house instead of just in my car, but there are other good streaming services that work 100% better. The only appeal radio has anymore is good DJs so I'd like to hear them, but buffering 6 times in less than 10 minutes is too much.
  • 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!

    I recently jumped from apple’s podcast system to this to hear my favorite radio podcast John and Ken because iHeart stopped having the Friday show on the Apple podcast stream. A move to get you to the iHeart app. Well I’m here and the podcast features are not that robust. The per episode playback order always goes newest to oldest and you can’t turn it the other way around. For catching up you have to remember that or you end up hearing the show out of order which is annoying if you just let the run to the next episode. No sleep timer available which helps you not run into other shows if you fall asleep listening. I got through eight episodes that way in one night. The skip features could be better and should be configurable. Get the settings better and I’ll rate you higher. Radio play of live content is great. Sound is clear.

    I have been using iheart for a long time now and it is easy to use not complicated and it plays all the right songs at the time you needed to hear them the most!! Go iheart radio!!! It's been a great few years!!
  • Battery Hog Oct 25, 2020

    By fxdp "That name is tsken"
    More stable than the older version but uses battery at a MUCH higher rate than the prior version on my iPhone X. I usually listen to the app 7-9 hrs per day and the battery was at 40%-55% at the end of the day. Now it’s 5% and the battery log shows it’s all iHeart Radio. I wish I could go back to the old version. (Similar issues using cell data while it’s connected to WiFi.) Since writing this review (previously 4 stars, since downgraded) the developer contacted me. They sent me the following “workarounds:” “ Could you try going into your settings on your phone and check under apps and notifications - iHeartRadio - useage to make sure iHeartRadio isn't excluded from power saving features.” Well, DUH!! And then this: “ For iPhone X users, please follow the steps below: Swipe from the bottom of the screen and hold your thumb on the screen until it shows all of your open apps. Hold down on the iHeartRadio app until you see a red minus symbol appear at the top left corner of the app Click the red minus symbol to exit and close the iHeartRadio app”. IMO, this is utterly unacceptable and an insulting ask. When I stop playing and/or close the app I expect it to STOP ALL FUNCTIONS without any further BS. It does not. The old version did and worked tolerably well. I should never have “updated” it. I have deleted it. Avoid this app.
  • 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.
  • Yay! Sep 2, 2021

    By Foxmoon9❤️
    I’m so happy that free users can make playlists now! I was really tired of using the standard ‘my playlist’ for all my playlists. One thing I’d like is being able to pick your interests so the ads would actually help. Now that I think on it, I’d also like to be able to remove the ‘suggestions’ from a playlist. The suggestions have a tendency to play more than the actual songs, and they’re usually just songs you like, not songs that go with the ‘theme’ of the playlist. Although, the suggestions can be helpful. I’d also like the ability to only play the playlist and not the suggestions for free. I get that you need to make money to improve your app, but could you at least let us choose the song we want to listen to for free?? I’d also really like it if lyrics were available on more songs. All in all, good app.
  • iHeart Radio App for iPhone 7 Mar 8, 2019

    By HnTresS
    I have been listening to the music on this app for over a week now and I can't enough of it. They made it easy to navigate with great features. It works for me and I haven't experienced any problems as of yet. I think that this app is awesome and I usually don't write many reviews on things unless it's worth my time. Besides there is an app for everything now a days to sit there and rate them all when you download or use them would take a while, at least in my case. I recommend iHeart Radio for those of you who love music without tons of commercial breaks. Thanks iHeart Radio and keep up the good work. So far you have a really great thing going for you and I hope that it doesn't change to much over time with a bunch of pointless improvements or updates that aren't necessary to the users or listeners.

    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 am from New Jersey and Florida visiting in Perú and still able to listen to my favorite radio stations. excellent! Supplemental: 1⭐ down from 5⭐ because An add was so long and unappealing I wanted to skip the Channel entirely because of it. There was no button to turn off the ad I had to restart my phone in order to get it to stop. Ridiculous... The fifth star will appear when the option to stop the unwanted noise appears. 4 stars because of replied. Will use the app see if the problem repeats

    Wish you got more than 6 skips per hour on free plan. 10 skips per hour would be perfect. Also, wish there was fewer ads too on free plan. I hear more ads than music, which makes me wanna switch to another music app. Those get fixed & I'd give all ***** stars. Right now though I give ****. Thanks. 🙂

    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
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. 😄❤️
  • Getting tired May 22, 2020

    By getting interupted
    I had this app before but then deleted it. I forgot why, but considering every 20-30 minutes that it shuts down for no reason, I’m starting to remember again. I like the podcasts, but I’m starting to think if they don’t fix their issues with having to restart the app so often, that I may delete it again and look for one that will actually keep playing. Tried listening to a 42 minute podcast and had to stop what I was doing 3 times just to restart it. 😒 Update: I’m deleting this app. As much as I like the content, there’s no point having an audio app that shuts off every 5-10 minutes. Once I write my information down, I’ll be deleting this app again Update again: I’ve noticed that the problem is that when I have headphones plugged into my iphone listening to the iHeartRadio app, that’s when it’s shutting down frequently. I normally use my wireless, but I need new ones because mine recently broke, so I’m not used to wired headphones. I’ve updated the app, and I will let you know if the updated app still has this glitch. Final update: I did the update to the app and it fixed the app with the plugged in headphones glitch. Dry happy now. Thank y’all
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Algorithm has problems. I turned on the Santiano station because I wanted to hear them specifically. In 3 hours of this station, the app played all of 3 Santiano songs. What else played? Bon Jovi, Queen, ACDC, and Fall Out Boy. Great bands, yes. But I'd like to hear the bands I've selected please. Or at least bands actually similar to Santiano.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • What’s the problem with this app? Jun 27, 2021

    By ChadleyTN
    I pay monthly for this app but it feezes on the home page when you first open it and then freezes while playing my music. If this isn’t repaired by 7/4, I’m going to Pandora. When I’m paying for something, I expect it to work. This app works a little more than half the time. Also, Russel whitney, Jesus nor the New Testament mentions homosexuality unless you read something into a particular verse. Many professional historians are sure that John the Baptist was homosexual. Do you think Jesus cared one iota about that. ABSOLUTELY NOT! You need to ask yourself something before you spew hatred and discontent: What Would Jesus Do? He would never write the crap you do online or anywhere else. Judging is one of the worst sins listed in the Bible. Let God hash all that out and in the meantime, mind your own business and get counseling for yourself.
  • 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!

    The version on device is up to date. The device is less than a year old. It crashes often - like just stops in middle of broadcast. Often cuts top of the hour news short - usually during the weather it just jumps to a commercial. Constantly asks user to upgrade to premium. Since this review originally posted, it has crashed about a half dozen times. All these problems are relatively new. Needs quite a bit of improvement... Still very unstable. It crashes more than any other app I use.

    They play more artists that im not crazy about than ones that i really like. i dont like that, which means i just need to listen to my own playlist. Gotta search and find what i like and add to playlist. Eh. Their suggestions not so good. Already cancelled and going somewhere else when this month runs out. Oh my they suck at picking out what i like. They keep playing same sheet over and over that i dont really like. They are no good. They keep playing things ive given thumbs down. Pathetic.

    It used to be much better, but the commercials are getting longer and more frequent. I feel I should get more from an app that has this many commercials, but 6 skips per day, thumbs down doesn't mean you don't hear the song (sound of silence by disturbed), and you can't pick you songs or replay a song without paying. Youtube is free, I get to pick my songs and replay or choose my song at will, and can skip quite a few commercials.

    I've used this app for years and I've never had so many problems with it. It's asking for background running permissions yet it doesn't allow me to provide such options and it stops after about every song. This is ridiculous. This seems like it should be a simple fix and it is fairly recent. Maybe the last 2 or 3 months and it also appears others are having the same issues. Please resolve this. I used to love this platform.

    Messy app. Constant pop up suggestions and ads. The kind of homogenized programming you'd expect from a corporate station. Very little local flavor no matter which market from which you select a station. Only keep it for the classic AT 40 station. Too bad that isn't a stand alone app.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    As of 2 updates ago app works choppy or not at all via WiFi. Takes 2 minutes for last station played to restart. Then cuts in and out constantly searching for a signal it appears or trying to figure out how play an add. I've been using app successfully for 5 yrs primarily at home where WiFi 6 network is unchanged. Tried WiFi from another home and from a corporate office and same issue. If I turn off phone WiFi it works fine. Can you look into this? Happy to send more details for troubleshooting.

    BAIT-&-SWITCH!!! I am a paid iHeart Plus subscriber. PLEASE DEFINE "PLAYLIST" Because, here in America, a playlist is a specific list of "media" chosen by the "USER" to be played at "USER's" convenience. I require a playlist(s) that will play the specific media of MY choosing, without any interference, whatsoever. That includes, suggestions, and/or "like" genre or media. P L A Y L I S T ! ! ! NOT your LIST!!! Did I make myself completely clear this time?

    Glitchy as all hell. Randomly disconnects from whatever device I am broadcasting to, randomly starts playing if I don't force close the app, randomly takes over when I connect to Bluetooth, crashes constantly. I do not have these problems with literally any other app I use. I can't comprehend how such a massive company that has so many resources can make such a poor app. Also, why do you need to advertise to keep it free when I am listening to one of the 855 radio stations you own?

    Not a bad app but I am sick of hearing the same commercial for Obama care over and over. This morning they played the same damn commercial 8 times back to back not once but 4 times in less than an hour. And it's been like this everyday for the past couple of weeks. Time to delete this app.

    So. Much. Buffering. Not worth my time. It would be nice to stream it on my phone so I can listen in my house instead of just in my car, but there are other good streaming services that work 100% better. The only appeal radio has anymore is good DJs so I'd like to hear them, but buffering 6 times in less than 10 minutes is too much.

    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!

    Used to listen 12 hours a day. But now every time there is a moment's disruption in your connection you're going to get an ad. The same ad. Over and over and over. As the target demographic for almost everything I try to stay away from apps and companies that cause insanity.

    Very difficult to use at times does not use a consistent user interface. It pushes out to you what they think you want to listen to. It is often wrong. They used to have a very simple user interface and got rid of it and now you have to press too many buttons to get to your library of radio stations.

    This used to be my favorite music listening app. Recently it ads upon ads. They cut into the middle of the song. When the ads are finally done, it cuts into the middle of the song. I have been listening for 2 hours and have heard the same commercials 5 times already. Time for Pandora. Im done.

    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.

    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??

    Its Free so I guess I have no complaints...BUT... Up until recently I would have given 5 stars but all of a sudden 2 of my favorite podcasts have completely disappeared. I only had 5 I listen to regularly. I tried emailing iHeart with the simplest question and it begins with asking the problem but then you have '99' steps to finish.... maybe not 99 but each 'block' tries narrowing the problem and you never reach the end....I looked into another podcast provider in less time.
