What I Like About iHeartRadio App

With iHeartRadio, sometimes I wonder how do they even make money. Imagine listening to your favorite music or podcast for 2-3 hours straight not get hit by a single ad? The creators of iHeartRadio care about user experience. This also explains why the user-interface is so clean and tidy looking.  

What I Don’t Like About iHeartRadio App

It is really difficult to see any downsides to this app but like every other mobile app, iHeartRadio too has its pros and cons. One con that I can mention is that it uses too much data. The app uses even more data than it’s website version (played on Google Chrome). I have even tried reducing the bit rate, but I did not see any significant gains. I hope the development team of iHeartRadio figures out a solution.

My Recommendation

I recommend iHeartRadio app to anyone who loves listening to music or podcasts on their daily commute. Whether you drive to work or use public transport, you can surely make the most of this free entertainment resource.
