If television still has an important place in the daily life of many people, its future, facing the Internet and online video services, is not the brightest. On the other hand, another, more discreet media remains associated with everyday life for some. It is indeed radio that we are talking about.

Multi-station apps, generalist radios from around the world, information radios, music radios, for young and old or even ultra-cool web radios, there is something for everyone. In short, here are the top radio apps for iPhone and iPad. Note that most of these apps are free. When an app is paid, its price is specified.

The best apps to listen to all radio stations

Audials Radio

A free application with a clean and modern design which offers the choice and the listening of very many world stations. It allows you to find your favorite stations thanks to the search or to the section of stations by country.

  • AudialsRadio


It’s probably one of the simplest, but it’s also not the most complete. Radium offers basic features that will suffice for those who do not want to be confused by too many buttons and functions, in addition to a sober design that works perfectly with iOS and evolves with the styles of stations listened to.

In other words, Radium gets to the point. If the application offers to discover the web radios classified by musical style, it also gives access to the major stationed and world stations. Once the favorite station has been found, a simple click will switch it to favorites so that you no longer miss your favorite shows.

Tune In Radio

Difficult to discuss radio applications without lingering for a moment on TuneIn Radio. The application available on almost all existing platforms is obviously on the program on iOS. With more than 100,000 web and radio stations available, it will meet the desires of all listeners.

The search is carried out by theme, musical trend… and it is even possible to browse what is on the air live with a simple swipe of the finger. Once again, everything is organized into categories that make it easier to find what you’re looking for.



Another particularity of this very comprehensive application is that it is possible to record the program being listened to. There’s even a special car mode with bigger buttons. Convenient if the 3 or 4G connection is available! And it’s always good to know that upgrading to pro version of this app removes ads:

  • TuneIn Radio Pro (paid)
  • TuneIn Radio (free)

Radio App

If there is a name well found, it is that of this application. It is actually very simple and takes up the principle of the FM/AM radio station like no other. Indeed, instead of offering a search for stations by list or by location, it offers an FM band. The choice of station is made by sliding the band with your fingertip. Perfect for discovery or to go to the stored frequency. Still, once you’ve found the station of your dreams, you can add it to your favorites so you don’t have to look for it anymore. The design is clear, sober and the app appeared to be very stable, with no clipping or buffering. Nice work:

The iPhone applications of major radio stations

After having discovered the “radio station” applications, here are those of the largest radio stations in France.

The unavoidable

The word radio quickly invokes mythical stations. Because heard during childhood, at a friend’s or relative’s, or randomly stuck on the highway, it’s hard to miss one of them. Here are the main stations in question available in their iPhone/iPad version:

  •  European 1
  • RTL
  • RMC

public service

As on television, the public service offers a varied offer of programmes. Among the various public stations, each with its own theme and audience. From Mouv to France Culture, without forgetting the essential France Inter, all have their free iPhone app:

  • France Inter
  • French Radio
  • franceinfo
  • fip
  • France Blue

For the young…

Ever since music has existed, few young people have validated their parents’ tastes when it comes to pushing the song. Quite logically, some radio stations are devoted to more current music that should suit the desires of the youngest:

  • Skyrock
  • NRJ
  • Virgin Radio
  • Fun Radio
  • Radio Indies

…And the not so young

If the selection above does not please, it will then be necessary to turn to the following, with probably more suitable content:

  • RTL2
  • RFM
  • Nostalgia
  • Darling FM
  • Laughter and Songs
  • Yes FM

So much for this folder of applications, hoping that our selection will allow everyone to find their radio happiness. It should be remembered on this occasion that this type of file cannot be exhaustive. You will inevitably have other applications to recommend because you appreciate them and use them on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to do so via the comments by indicating their strengths and your preferences, these comments will be used for future updates!
