Spark Radio

By  | 

So you want to listen to radio on your iPhone? Maybe you just want to beyond what’s being offered in the U.S. and listen to radio channels from around the world. Spark Radio is a cool streaming app for iPhone that gives you access to over 10,000 radio stations from around the world. That includes music channels, news coverage, and even talk radio shows. If you have run out of music to listen to on your iPhone, Spark Radio opens lots of new doors.

Unlike a lot of radio apps that come with convoluted interfaces, Spark Radio is very easy to get a handle on and makes it easy to find new stations to listen to on the go. Spark Radio comes with 8 graphic visualizers, which is a plus if you are into visualizers. What I like about this app is the fact that you can search for content by keyword or location. If you have the URL of the program you want to listen to on your phone, you can choose to enter your URL into this program.

Spark Radio is the first and only GPS-capable radio app that we have tested. The app helps you find local stations to listen to on the go by using your GPS co-ordinates. It also allows you to listen to radio and surf the web at the same time. It has a social aspect to it as well. You can join Spark Radio community and find out what others are listening on their phones (using the Globe Navigator feature). Rating stations is possible as well.

What’s most exciting about Spark Radio is the fact that more stations are expected to be added to the app soon. The app itself has a very intuitive interface and is very easy to work with. The GPS feature was not expected but a very good surprise. If you are looking for more audio content to listen to on your iPhone, Spark Radio is a must have.

Rating: 8.5/10
