I’ve been having a lot of issues with the app crashing when I click the power button on my phone or switc to other apps , I’m not sure what’s going on but it’s getting somewhat annoying. I still love the app though
Where’s my sound? 2/5
Well, got a new iPhone, and always love listening to my iHeartRadio app while driving, (about 50% of my job is driving). However, since getting my new phone and updating the app; about 3 times an hour the sound just goes mute for about 20 seconds both in my car when I’m driving, and on my headphones. I checked my Spotify to see if maybe it was the phone, I changed headphones, I even reconnected the Bluetooth in my car to my phone, reconnected the bluetooth in my headphones to my phone, restarted the phone, deleted and re-downloaded the app...nope, still happening. Guess I’ll just use Spotify from now on. Hooray
I love iheart. I get to listen to my favorite podcasts, I’ve even discovered some new favorites! I’ve gone through headaches with this app, they’ve fixed a lot of headaches. The new ones are frustrating. “Downloaded” podcasts won’t always play, sometimes it just randomly selects and plays other podcasts. Lately my “downloaded” podcasts audio is going in and out. It’ll play for a couple seconds, then silence, then the audio comes back on, later in the podcast. Just to go silent again. This happens so frequently that I haven’t been listening..
Crashes hourly 3/5
I use the app quite a bit and it crashes almost like clockwork, usually I can get 30 minutes of listening in and it crashes 3 or 4 times within 15 minutes and goes back to 30 minutes before it goes down again. I enjoy the app but these crashes are annoying as heck
Drops for no reason 2/5
By SS Drudge
This is a decent app but lately it has routinely stopped playing for no reason. It will close when I lock the screen, minimize, open Safari, etc. It makes no sense.
When I pause a podcast it isn’t remembering where I left of 2/5
This is like the 10th time this has happened! When I pause a podcast in the app to listen later, it doesn’t remember where I left off. So I have to start over or sit there until I find the spot I left off at. Ugh!
On top of that, since the update, the new podcast UI is so ugly and unpleasant to navigate. Please switch it back to when it had a more intuitive, neat layout.
Garbage after update 1/5
Podcasts constantly stop or restart on different episodes even after downloading. Streaming is a huge pain as it never seems to load properly on WiFi or 4G. Not sure what’s going on.
Becoming less and less usable 1/5
This app started off as utilitarian - which is what I want from a “radio” app. It was buggy but that was ok given its newness.
But over time it has grown in feature depth while becoming more unstable. It now stops working multiple times while I’m trying to listen to a channel. It either crashes or “turns off” or otherwise goes away.
I tried its podcasting feature. It’s also buggy. Offline caching is hit or miss, UI becomes unresponsive, button clicks perform the wrong action (possibly due to the crappy design that is too PC-like vs mobile), on and on.
Question more than review 🤷🏻♀️😬 4/5
Is the app supposed to show itself in the lock screen or in the area where you swipe up to I think what’s called the control panel? I’ve already checked my settings and “show in lock screen” is turned on.

I love this music I listen to is even on ROBLOX!😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁! Please write back! Bye 👋! This is really nice and I wanna play this even off WiFi but I cant so please fix that XOXO
Hasn’t worked properly for a week. 1/5
It’s so miraculous how there is never a problem playing an AD but when it comes to actually trying to listen to something it doesn’t want to work and is now a daily issue. ANNOYING!!!!!!
Still crashing 2/5
The app still crashes out of nowhere and the sound quality just isn’t quite there. I actually prefer the iPhone podcast app versus iHeart cuz there are no annoying adds. Every time you navigate the iHeart app, you accidentally click the Ron burgundy add
Predatory Subscriptions 2/5
You cannot hardly use the app without enrolling in the paid services. I understand they need to charge but you can navigate through the app and accidentally enroll......very easily. I assume this is intentional is my issue.
If this app worked properly. It was fine for about a month now I can’t even listen to anything without it skipping around to different podcasts or playing only the latest one and won’t let me go back. It truly has a mind of its own.
Annoying Glitch 1/5
I use iHeart every day to listen to my local morning show. If I don’t finish the show, I’ll finish it the next day. Ever since the app updated, it deletes where I left off and starts the show over. Without knowing exactly what the time stamp is of where it stopped, it’s a real annoyance to have to try to find my place again. It does this even with downloaded episodes. Though it seems like something small, it makes it impossible to just open the app and go.
Other than that, I love the app and love that episodes can be downloaded. It worked flawlessly until the last update.
This app is going downhill fast. Listened for a couple of years with no problems and now the last couple of updates makes it un-listenable. WiFi or on data, if you leave the app it WILL crash. So frustrating. Ppl complained (myself included) before they update and then it happened and there is no resolution to be seen. And if you contact customer support it’s all auto generated BS. It makes it even more frustrating that my fav radio show/podcast is owned by this GD company
Can’t play podcast 1/5
After last update I can not play my podcast and when it does play after a certain time it just goes silent. Tried deleting and reload the app but it’s still garbage. Tried everything that it says for troubleshooting but it’ll only play half of the podcast (rovers morning glory) before it goes silent and no voice comes out afterwards it’s like it’s trying to play another commercial before it messes up
BUG FIXES NEEDED ASAP!!! The app is not so great anymore! 1/5
They changed the layout on the podcast pages.
They need to fix the bug on the app as well, because when you open the app and lock your phone the app doesn’t keep playing, you have to be on the app for at least a minute or two, then to your home page and then you can lock your phone while the app still playing, but all the time, sometimes that trick doesn’t work and you have to shot off the app completely and re-enter it for it to somewhat work.
When you want to switch to a different window or come back to the app it reset the app.
The Worst! 1/5
This has to be the worst this app has ever been!! Good luck trying to listen to Podcasts. Not sure where IHeartRadio gets they are #1 for podcasts if nobody can listen. Guess I will have to find something else to listen to on another provider.
Garbage App!!!! 1/5
This app is garbage! I always have problems with it...I only use this app to listen to my podcasts but now that they are on YouTube I think I will uninstall it. There are too many apps out there that can provide you with the same services and actually work. Ok let me add the fact that I have to come up with a “nickname” to even post this is stupid
Local advertising 1/5
I listen to 3 stations
And I am only getting local ads for my State Capital area.
I changed locations to S Texas but am still receiving ads for Jackson MS.
Even when listening to my Local station I receive ads for Jackson, MS.
There is No Goods or Service that I will drive 6 hrs round trip for.
Stop playing ads during live radio while the show I am listening to is actually on
Won’t play podcasts 1/5
Good luck playing podcasts! I go to start to play a certain episode but that episode won’t play so it’ll pick a random episode that was previously listened to!
Has become junk 1/5
This app now takes several time of opening and closing for it to even play the correct pod cast and even more times to get it to produce sound.
I only listen to hip hop
Good with music but a lot of bugs 2/5
By Pretty puzzles
Overall I like the music selection and the choices of songs they have. I also like how they can foe me a radio that I might like. But other than that it’s not to great. There are a lot bugs. For starters when my phone is off it randomly closes the hole app and I have to go back into my phone and go back into the app and I can’t get the song I was listening to, to come back ok as the same song. Another thing is that when my phone is off it randomly pauses the song and when I un pause it, it pauses again so I have to go back into the app to fix it. I don’t really recommend this app if there are other better options.
We don’t want the updates 1/5
Update: still not able to play podcasts. This is NOT the “#1 Podcast App.” Also when it did work there was no way to pause or play except when in the app. Junk.
I haven’t used this for about a week because nothing will play. Can you please fix it??
Please fix 1/5
The last few versions keep crashing
The new version is TERRIBLE! 1/5
The new version is terrible. It doesn’t remember were I leave off and it is difficult to tell what podcasts I’ve already listened to.
Music will just quit for no reason regardless if you pay for a membership.
Way too many commercials 1/5
Constant commercials and music totally unrelated to the chosen stations and genres.
Not good for radio 1/5
What a frustrating irritating piece of junk!
Can’t find local npr radio station. I know it’s available because I listen to it on the lesser known “Tune-in” radio, I find it in seconds on every new phone I’ve had over the years.
Keeps shutting off 3/5
I use this app to listen to music as I drive, and since the last update it’s having issues playing music. After 30 seconds it shuts the music off and has troubles starting back up. The music also turns off when I lock my phone. I’m not sure why it’s doing it, the app itself is up to date. I’ve tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but the problem continues. Otherwise it’s a great app and I would love to continue using it, but this issue is really making me question the software and functionality of it.
Used to be good 1/5
I don’t know what iheart is doing! Just uninstalled the app, it continues to get worse. Became unusable, sick of fighting with the app.
Awesome 👏 5/5
By Spying keys and coins
It would be better we could search a song and add it to our favorites instead of waiting for it to play
Songs/artist I never heard of B4 on my favs station 1/5
I have complained of this B4! I have a favs play list of 70’s soft rock. So how does a grunge song that I never heard off b4 get played in the middle of my 5 mile run?! Oh, I Know! So when I unlike and skip, you can pop up a free 30 day trial of subscription of unlimited skips!
Bull crap! I Will Never Pay You Guys A DIME Because of your BS
I will listen to 15 sec commercial , but a mood busting song ruins it for me. Do you hit a Rap play list with a classic country song the same way?
By cornelius divine
The app is skipping worse than scratched up record. Keeps involuntarily switching from the podcast I’m listening to and going to other old ones, or just freezing up altogether 😤
Don’t delete review because they are true and negative 1/5
Did you delete my review? App is ok, but crashes ALL the time. EVERY time I open it to listen to a podcast, it crashes within 5 minutes. Are you really asking people to pay for that?
App keeps crashing and force closing
Recent update randomly shuts off and either goes to a different episode or plays nothing at all. This is irritating and does not make for an enjoyable user experience. Would be interested in hearing of any adjustments that could be made in app.
Why do I have to reinstall this every two days to get the sound to play through my car? Apple Music works fine so its not the phone or the car it’s this app. And why so latest episodes of podcasts appear 4 hours later than Spotify or overcast? Fix it!!
Nice when it actually works 3/5
Have to constantly delete and reinstall...no sound...even though it’s still playing...won’t play...won’t play where you left of starts from the beginning EVERY time...
Automatic subscriptions you don’t want 1/5
IHeartRadio starts playing on your phone on its own. When you go to exit out you are automatically entered into a subscription. If you don’t immediately cancel you start getting billed 5.99 a month. Fortunately I caught it but not happy with the way it happened. Happened to both my husband and Me.
Podcast stopped working 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 1/5
Ever since the most recent update I can’t listen to the Rovers morning glory podcasts on demand. It acts as if it’s playing but there is no sound attached. This is literally the only reason I have the app. Fix this ASAP and I’ll consider changing my review.
Unsatisfied with your app 1/5
By J - SCRIZZY
Why is that iHeartRadio keeps replaying this Afro b drogba Joanna song repetitively and you play more commercials than songs
Toooo many commercials 1/5
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to many commercials !! Absolutely ridiculous, Pandora!!!!
