Broadcasts 3 introduces a beautiful new Mini Player, revamped Search experience, and a new Artwork Chooser to help style your library. Now available on Apple Vision Pro.

Listen to streaming internet radio in an ultra-simple, single-purpose app.

Broadcasts makes building a library of stations from around the world easier than ever — no subscription required. Use completely free with a limited-size library of stations, or upgrade to the full version to unlock the library limit and add as many of your own stations as you like from the Station Browser, or manually via URL. Search for stations from around the world as easily as from your own library. Use the Mini Player to showcase gorgeous station and track artwork (for supported stations).

Sync your library across iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV with iCloud & Universal Purchase. Enjoy your library on the road using CarPlay and your iPhone.

Browse stations in grid or list view. Listen in Light or Dark mode. Edit stations to provide your own artwork, or use the Artwork Chooser to generate something fun and colorful. Use Handoff to transfer playback between devices, or AirPlay directly to a home speaker.

Supports Shortcuts & AppleScript for playback automation.

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.
