But rad.io is one such Android application which allows users to enjoy a wide and broad range of radio stations from around the world in many different languages. The application has a massive choice of radio stations (more than 4000) and boasts of many features. Check out our exclusive rad.io application for Android review to know more about it.
The application has variety of search filters which allows you to find stations of your choice. Users can stream a radio based on a theme, type, country, city or language. This highlights the intuitive UI of the application. After playing the application for a while and having selected the stations, you can tag them as your favorites and list them in a single tab. Another great feature of this application is that it provides you recommendations. Based upon your choice, the app gives you a pool of stations as per your matches.
Another great feature of the application is its “Buy” feature. For example, if you are listening to a particular track or a song and like it, then you get links for buying it within the radio player.
