If you happen to be a music lover you’d definitely want to have a Radio app on your phone so you can listen to your favorite genre of music and find out what new songs are playing around the world.

Certain phones like the iPhone don’t come with a radio, so you’ll need to utilize certain internet streaming based Radio Apps to get the job done.

I use this almost everyday and not once I have had to wait for the music to load. The sound quality is amazing even at 64kbps, but you also get the option to stream music at 320kbps if you want to make use of those brand new headphones that you spent a fortune on!!
