myTuner is everything you look for in an overcrowded and saturated radio streaming market. It’s unlike any other multichannel radio service that you find in the search results. It’s one of the most interactive and user-friendly services out there. I’ve been using myTuner for nearly 4 years now and this app has a special place not just on my phone but also on my heart.
What is myTuner?
If you’re new to radio streaming, you probably must not have heard myTuner Radio. It is an internet/radio website/app directory which provides you access to over 50,000 stations and 1 million-plus podcast on a single website.
myTuner was founded by Eduardo Carqueja in October 2010. In 2012, myTuner’s iOS app was launched as iTuner Radio v1.0. When the app reached Version 3, AppGeneration acquired the software from Digital Minds. Since AppGeneration’s takeover, the app’s focus shifted from single app development to a multi-platform directory comprising a vast network of internet radio stations. And everything turned out well as myTuner became one of the best Radio apps not only on iPhone and iPad but on every other device with a cumulative network of 50,000 radio stations from over 200 countries.
Why should you stream myTuner?
Sure, there are many apps that provide the filtering option but not so much as myTuner. myTuner Radio allows you to filter your station based upon the location – city, state, and country, genre – indie, electronic, pop, rock, hip hop, etc. and content – news, music, local. Such in-depth categorization helps you to find the suitable content in no time.
Extensive podcast coverage
myTuner Radio sure has 50,000 stations from around the world but personally, its podcast network is its biggest strength. Similar to the radio stations, there are multiple ways to access the podcasts. I personally prefer selecting through categories. You can choose from a wide range of options such as health, music, news, comedy, politics, arts, science and technology to name a few. You can even download the podcast on your mobile and listen offline – A feature I absolutely love.
myTuner platform is available through the website and through the app. If you want to stream the service via a mobile app, you can download it for desktop devices – Web, Windows, Mac, wearables – apple watch and android wearables, mobile phones – Android and iOS devices, TV – Apple TV, LG TV, Samsung TV, Android TV and finally set-top box – Amazon Fire TV and Roku TV.
Apart from these, myTuner is also compatible with smart speakers and home appliances such as Sonos and Alexa. If you thought that’s enough, it’s even compatible with Android Auto, Apple Carplay, Bosch mySPIN, and Jaguar & Land Rover InControl Apps.
Alarm and timer support
We’ve seen this as a handy feature in many reviews. Having an alarm and timer support allows you to sleep while listening to music or podcasts as the radio goes off by itself. Setting an alarm allows you to set your favorite station as the ringtone. Naturally, the early morning update blend with the morning making you feel less cranky.
You don’t need to stay on the app to listen to the radio. You can get going with other things and carry on doing your mundane task on your phone. myTuner works in the background and thus there are no discrepancies. You can create playlist and even share them using Facebook, Twitter, Email or SMS. If you’re an iOS user, you can even listen to the radio using Air-Play. myTuner Radio’s compatibility is truly unmatched.
How to access myTuner?
myTuner is among the top radio streaming platforms and thus you can find it by typing ‘’My Tuner” in your search engine. If you want to access it from our website, you can use the following link: My Tuner Radio.
Given what I’ve seen in the majority of the radio music streaming websites, I’d say that myTuner’s user interface is respectable. The Red and white color combination is present in unison across the website and can be seen on every page. Apart from a few elements such as the alignment on the homepage, and app plug, I like the overall look and feel of this website.
myTuner’s header section is quite simple and straightforward. You’ll find 4 menus – Stations, Podcasts, Sign-in, and Search.
If you click on stations, you’ll be taken to a new page with the most popular radio channels in your country. For instance, if you’re streaming from the US – you’ll find Fox News Talk, WQHT Hot 97 FM, The Big 80s Station, along with 21,000 other channels.
Similarly, if you’re streaming from India – you’ll get 465 channels including the likes of Radio Mirchi 98.3, Pehla Nasha, Radio Namkeen, 92.7 Big FM and AIR FM Gold to name a few.
If you click on a podcast, you’ll be directed to a dedicated page with a list of podcasts on the right and the search and sort category on the left. An interesting feature is to star mark your favorite podcast which will keep it on the top regardless of the language, country or city you choose.
The sign-in page has a simple layout where you can register using your email id and password. If you’re already registered, you can use this page to login to your account. Alternate ways to log in include Facebook and Google Sign-in. In case if you forgot your password, you can click the link and reset your password as well.
The Hero Section on myTuner website is quite similar to the inner page. Except for specific region-based channels and podcasts, you get the top internet radio stations in your region. By default, the list will have popular stations from your country. Thus, Fox News Talk, WQHT Hot 97 FM, The Big 80s Station are few of the stations which you’d probably see first.
As you scroll down and enter the body section of the website, you’ll still see three rows of top radio stations before you move to the next section. After the channel thumbnails, you have a list of radio stations based on genre. There’s a slider option that you can use to find the genre you want to listen to. Scroll further, and you’ll see Apps section which provides you the link to download the app followed by popular podcasts.
As mentioned earlier, the inner page layout is like what you see on the homepage and through the header section. In this section, I’d like to discuss the audio player. There’s channel thumbnail on the left, title on the right, followed by the channel link and a song that’s currently playing. You can even check the tracks that were played before (up to one hour). There are ads on top of the inner page, just above the player and on the right side. Thus, leaderboard ads and skyscraper ads are two ads that you’d probably see on the website.
myTuner has an extensive directory where you can find all the radio stations from 200 countries. There are about 50,000 radio stations including AM, FM and pure online stations. Regardless of where you are and what your tastes like, you can find something on this network. Not only do you get access to over a million podcast but you can play with a built-in equalizer to improve the overall experience.
What I love about myTuner is that everything is straightforward. There are no complex configurations to deal with. Just visit the website or download the app from the store and start listening to music or podcasts. I used my iPhone XR to download the app, and as soon as it downloaded, it used my location to choose the country and thus displayed the top channels in my location. By using left or right slider options on the app, I was able to access other sections such as local, news, pop music, recommended, etc.
If you want to hear radio stations from other countries, you can simply tap on the flag on the upper right-hand corner and choose the country. Once you do it, you’ll get suggestions consisting of Top Stations from that country.
Plans & Pricing
myTuner is available in two versions – free and premium. The free version has advertisements and doesn’t offer the equalizer feature. However, you can access the feature through certain tasks such as setting an alarm, listening to a podcast, adding favorites and so on. If you like the platform and want to stream ad-free, you must make a onetime $3 payment which makes your account premium forever.
Suggestions I have for myTuner
Though I absolutely love the myTuner app, I had issues with the playback option. Turns out there’s no way to use play/pause button using earphones. Thus, unlike me even if you own a phone with earphones, you’ll need your screen to toggle back and forth.
I love listening to podcasts and thus I find myTuner valuable. I have changed my schedule nowadays and have replaced audiobooks with podcasts and myTuner has turned out to be the perfect app for that switch. I’d totally recommend you myTuner – the app to be specific.
