The Best Internet Radio Tuner on Any Platform

If this the current App as designed on the iPhone only, it would be worth close to 5 stars. If it were a superb one for my iPad as well, then it's worth noticing. Add a Mac OS and AppleTV version and you have a whole family of well-built, elegant and beautiful Internet Radio apps that essentially lets you listen to both your local and foreign radio stations almost instantly. Not only that, but all of your carefully curated stations you do on, say, your Mac, get copied to iCloud and synched to all of the others. You never have to add or fix a station twice. I use this app constantaly and am pleased to see the developer continuing to refine and polish it, but it really doesn't need much more. Maybe and alarm mode so you can wake up to a station of your choice? But then it would be competing with all of those other (usually lousy) alarm clock apps.

The Radio App I've Been Waiting For

Broadcasts is a new app that is steadily and rapidly improving and adding features (e.g., the recent directory of stations addition), but already I'm won over from a well-known competitor's legacy app that I've never loved. Broadcast: a simple, low cost radio app on both iOS and Mac OS X that syncs well. I'd love to see the ability to export and import station lists (including descriptions and icons) so that I could evangelize the app to my friends and family and make it dirt simple for them to add the app and get started. Finding which radio stations are the "best" or are "stations in my areas of listening interest" amongst the multitude of stations in the USA and worldwide is likely still overwhelming for new users, so any feature that would help could be useful. Kudos to the developer.
