Still keeping Apple Music 4/5
I like it so far. Has lots of music but it’ll take more for me to let go of Apple Music
Not a radio replacement 2/5
About to uninstall, reasons below.
1st battery life. Used 77% of my battery in 2 hours. New iPhone se
2nd, video ads as you tune to a station, radio doesn’t do this.
3rd ads vs content
Tuning to a station during a commercial break, it always starts you at the beginning of the ad. Wish it would do that for actually content.
4th genre fail
When a live station goes to a commercial break, often iHeart app will play music that doesn’t belong on the station, worst part is that it’s normally some crap Christian song or anti-drug pop song which definitely doesn’t belong on a rock station.
More to follow I’m sure
How much is Post Malone paying you? 3/5
You need to get better with the suggestions. No matter how many Post Malone songs I have thumbed down, no matter how many times you’ve suggested him and I clicked “not for me” he still continues to pop up in my recommendations. Please fix this! Also, can you please have the app remember where I am in a playlist when I have to stop listening for several hours? Pretty please?
EDIT: Thank you for your response iHeart Media but please re-read my response and try again. I said he still shows up as an artist I may like after multiple times clicking the “not for me” option. I’d like the app to remember when I’ve said no thanks to an artist and not recommend him again. After several years of using the app, the same 3 artists/stations are recommended for me even though I have never listened to them.
Login required 1/5
Yet another login? Really?
NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK. 1/5
This was a great app. But then the new update screwed the app up REAL bad! Aren’t updates supposed to make apps better? Not worse? Now, it takes like 10 seconds to pause, which I know doesn’t sound like a lot, but when it’s filled with a song, it is. Also, literally whenever a song starts playing that I like, the app randomly force closes itself. Not to mention the app will not play songs I like after I run out of skips. I am 99% sure that that’s rigged. I also hate the new ads. I get you have to make money! I really do! But these ads are for stuff I don’t like, need, or want. No, ads, I don’t have a business and I don’t need help finding workers for my business! And no, ads, I don’t like true crime! Can’t I pick my interests, so I’d get ads that are actually worth my time? I give this three stars because you can fix this. Edit: Yay! The pause issue is fixed! Still, the other issues stand. You regain 1 star for fixing the pause issue. EDIT: NOW IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK HALF THE TIME. 90% of the time it just gives me the iHeart Radio loading thing and doesn’t go to the part it’s supposed to go to. Thanks for nothing, iHeart Radio. Everybody reading this, DO NOT DOWNLOAD EVER.
EDIT: I TRIED REJOINING MY WIFI, EVERYTHING. THIS TRASH YOU CALL AN APP DOESN’T EVEN WORK. NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS APP. UNTIL YOU FIX THIS ISSUE I AM LEAVING THIS REVIEW AS IT IS.
Ads make me miss the show 3/5
I enjoy listening to iHeart radio, but the ads that come up often interrupt the radio show I am trying to listen to.
App stops 1/5
By Hugh Glass
When I’m in other apps like Facebook audio stream stops. Please correct.

The best free Radio 3/5
Works fine except for Apple CarPlay .. it will not connect
Used to be awesome 2/5
I absolutely do not like the new update! It’s confusing and I miss some of my podcasts. I used to could click auto download and next time I got on the app there would be my new downloads ready to listen too . Now, even though I have auto download set I can’t find them anywhere
Too many advertisements. 1/5
After the last update you now have to listen to 5 minutes of commercials before the music starts.
I am Always going to be a iHeart fan 4Life
Loyal fan but……… 3/5
Ever since the recent update I’ll go to make a new playlist and it’s says it’s been created but it’s nowhere to be found. Really annoying and frustrating. But love the music selection and all that.
2nd review for poor issues/app quality 1/5
I wrote my first review about this app a while ago that listed multiple issues that haven’t been addressed yet. I get it though: I don’t expect this huge developer to cater to each and every user’s experience.
This time around I have found a new issue on top of the ones previously listed: I randomly cannot play podcasts. I click the play button only for it to flash to the pause logo (as if it’s playing) then back to play as if I just opened up the podcast. I then try to download the podcast episode and it suddenly flashes “unavailable.” This is with all podcasts I follow and not just one specific podcast.
I have power cycled my phone for a period and that didn’t work. I logged out and logged back in and that didn’t work. I deleted the app and that still didn’t work. I’m connected to WiFi and have a decent cellular signal, so I feel as if all angles are covered. I also verified the app was up to date. A google search came up with no solutions other than those I already tried above. I’m beginning to dislike this app and I’m now searching for a new medium to stream my podcasts.
I don’t know 5/5
By im eeeeeee personnnnnn
I just love 106.1😍
The music is just what I love and need!!! 5/5
I started listening to your station after I stopped listening to another music app. For me your station is superior and it has far less ads.
Keep the great music coming my way 😊!
Where’s Brian Suits? Where is Dark Secret Place? 1/5
Where is Brain Suits? What happened to Dark Secret Place?
It works more often than not... 5/5
It’s pretty darn good... considering it’s a free service. I ❤️ iHeartRadio... especially around Christmas 😘
App Won't work 1/5
By Fiesty C
I open it multiple times, force close it & it still won't load. It's been like this for like a week now.
Tejano Radio Stations 5/5

Awesome choices; thanks & keep up the good work.
Good stuff. 4/5
By number#1 reo fan
It’s well done.lots of good stuff on here,
Each time they update, they make a little worse 2/5
I swear, each time they update this app they make it worse. Do they test their upgrades? Now when you pause and return to a podcast you lose your place. Automatic downloads turned back on after the last upgrade. Stop it! It was fine.
Now you’re forced to listen to a 2 1/2 minute video ad before the streamed radio content behind… also filled with ads. Awful. Just awful.
Way too many ads 1/5
2021 update: Having a fun new little issue. The app randomly starts playing Smashing Pumpkins (?) in the middle of my live morning show. Happens multiple times a day, every day. The only way to make it stop is to force quit the app and wait a while. And sometimes that doesn’t even help. What the heck?
It seems like ads have gotten so much worse over the last few weeks. It’s excessive at this point and makes me want to avoid listening. Commercial brakes are frequent and long. Now you’re pushing full songs as ads. I’ve heard the same song four times (Clean Eyes) during my morning show this morning.
Terrible ux 1/5
Edited to add do not use this app around children or co workers.the algorithm is broken or hacked and a very nsfw and disgusting track that was not music played today. There is no way to report or restrict it. I exclusively listen to Broadway so it made no sense and also it wasn’t even a song just pornography. This finally made me delete the app. Pop up for "free trial” every time you open app. Can’t easily get out of it because they want you to unintentionally say yes without knowing so you charge your credit card. I had to turn off in app purchases just for this app. It’s hard to navigate to your favorite stations. Only the last one shows on the screen. The information for their own stations is limited and not correct. Like for Broadway, I want to know the show more than I want to know Broadway actor that is singing. I wish there were another way to get radio stations while traveling. On thé bright side it’s a useful example when I teach ux. Edited to respond: this IS my feedback! I’m not going to do the work for your ux team!
It’s the best best I definitely recommend 5/5
Love it 5/5
Love all the different music and podcast they have to offer outstanding
App won’t open! 1/5
I just updated my IHeart on my iPhone 11 so I could listen to a local station. I tried opening it several times and no matter what, it won’t open! I even turned my phone off to see if that works. I don’t use this app that often but now I can’t use it at all and am very disappointed! What the heck?
An app with local FM stations?? Yes please! Love your evolution channel! 5/5
I’m addicted to this app now. Forget Pandora, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube. You can also leave this playing while perusing other apps. Thumbs up!
Too many ads 2/5
I don’t use this app enough to justify paying for it… so I pay for it by listening to ads…so much so that I miss parts of live radio shows. It’s very frustrating. It also happens when a live radio show goes to commercial. It’s as if the ads are glitching and caught in a loop. I have to restart the app so that I can continue to listen to my show.
The only reason I still have this app is because it’s the only one that has the radio channels I want to listen to (that I know of). Otherwise I would have deleted this long ago.
Good app, but, it takes a while to get going, quite annoying at times.
Makes Me Listen To Songs That I Do Not Want To Hear 4/5
Loyal fan 5/5
By Qeens New York
I have been a fan since New York when you first came on!!!!!!!!!!!
I JUST WANT TO LISTEN TO THE FREAKING RADIO! 1/5
I don’t mind ads, but when an app tries to FORCE you to engage in podcasts or radio stations you haven’t asked for, FORCES you then to sit through an ad, “create a favorites list” (no thank you!) and then sit through the SAME AD AGAIN, oh an by the way it’s a VIDEO AD on a RADIO platform and you can’t turn off your screen while it’s playing, it B as in B and S as I. S!
Ads. Ads. Ads. 2/5
Through the app you can choose which songs you like. Based on the songs and artist you have chosen they will suggest radio stations. Where you live or in areas you don’t live. You can get radio stations from all over. My drive to work is about 15 minutes give or take. And the ads on the radio itself last 15 minutes and they play music for about 15 minutes. So half of the time you are listening to advertisements. On top of that a lot of the radio hosts can talk for A WHILE. Sometimes it’s about weird things like what kind of underwear they wear. Recently I heard one about a guy being excited to find drugs in his socks on the topic “good random things that happen”. Some mornings all they do is talk then play ads. Don’t expect radio at 7 in the morning on your way to work. Expect them to talk about awkward subjects the might make you laugh or make you want to turn them off completely. I could look past this, no big deal, no need to write a stellar review, no need to bash them. UNTIL you find out the app itself also has ads. Now I understand your radio stations can’t go playing music for longer than 15 minutes. But to add MORE advertisements in the app. Just ridiculous. Way too many ads compared to other music apps. No wonder radio is slowly plummeting and apps like Spotify and Pandora are thriving. We don’t ask you to be like them but don’t make the competition so easy to choose Spotify over iHeart radio. Going to be making my own playlist sadly.
Love this radio!!
So easy to use 5/5
I love this app always has the music I want to listen to!
Iheart Radio has now decided that they are going to add songs to MY playlist and they are going to shuffle my music!! I paid for my subscription when I first signed up years ago, so that I could build my OWN playlist.
Well, now they have gotten greedy and want me to pay double so I can keep MY playlist the way I want it!
You lose! Now I'm canceling my subscription all together!!
I Love The New Custom Playlist Feature As A Free User 5/5
I sure am appreciating the fact that you are now allowing free users like myself to create more than just one playlist. I really do wanna thank you for doing that.
Silence after phone calls ;-( 4/5
I love this app. Really I do! My iPad stays in the kitchen and it’s the only thing I use it for these days; to listen to iHeart music. I use iHeartRadio on my iPhone as well for music and podcasts. Even though my iPad has its own phone number, it’s still connected to my iPhone. When my iPhone rings, the iPad will display who is calling with the option to answer the call on the iPad instead of the iPhone. I like that feature. What I don’t like is after the call is over (even if I don’t answer), iHeartRadio does not resume playing after the call is finished. After every call, I have to unlock my iPad and hit play again to resume playing. I have it on for background music and I don’t like the silence. I wish it would automatically resume playing the radio or podcast like it was before the call came through. Can this code be written?
Was great 1/5
Now it progressively get worse with every update. It’ll reboot, takes forever to connect & plays music that’s thumbed down anyway.
10min of ads 1/5
By Streaming/Apple TV
Nothing listening to 10 mins of ads before you hear a song! Great 👍🏻
I love I heart radio because I can find any music memory and control when I want to hear it. I give I heart radio 9 stars

Hawaii reggae 5/5

Thank you so much for giving me access to Hawaiian reggae, the best reggae out there.

App on iPhone locks up 1/5
By i am contacting Apple
Cannot change stations. I have to delete the app and reinstall it. Then it works for a few days, but locks up again. Will only play the last station played. Shutting it down doesn’t help.
