What can you use the app for?

Radio.com is an online radio service that lets users listen to stations from anywhere. The site divides stations into a handful of categories, including classic, pop, hip-hop, country, rock, exclusive, news and sports. The user can browse or search for stations by artist or keyword. Each page includes a player complete with realistic radio dial and scrolling headlines that showcase related content and images. Users can also view a scrolling headline ticker and recent Twitter Tweets. A favorites button lets users build a collection of their favorite stations from all categories. Each station includes a brief description, image and the program title which appears on the play bar as the program is heard.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Radio.com offers an appealing service that has caught the eye of many users. The site provides a convenient service that users can enjoy anytime no matter where they are. So far Radio.com has earned a number of glowing reviews and decent to high ratings. The mobile apps have been just as successful, although there have been a few complaints of stations not working. This seems to be related to specific mobile devices.

What are the differences to other apps?

Radio.com lets its users access radio content that isn’t always easy to find on the web. Rather than visiting the station’s official page to see if a listening option is offered, users can check out Radio.com and access numerous stations at once. The site is relatively easy to use and includes a diverse selection so users can find anything from sports to music and news.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Radio.com has a clean, modern appearance that favors dark colors. The sleek design adds personality and blends perfectly with the site’s purpose. The player features an eye-catching dial as well as a few extra pieces of content, such as recent event headlines and Twitter Tweets. The buttons are easy to find so users can adjust volume, stop or start the program with minimal hassle.

How does the registration process work?

Users are not required to create a Radio.com account to begin listening. The site keeps things simple and straightforward by presenting all available content to visitors. No registration option is offered. This means users can dive right into their favorite programs without spending time logging in. The downside is that aside from a favorites feature, the site doesn’t offer much in the way of personalization.

Radio.com does not charge users for its services. Anyone can stop by and search for their favorite stations without paying for the convenience. This is a great way to convince users to return anytime they are in the mood for music, sports, talk or news. No premium features are offered with no information on whether anything will be added in the future.
