The Radio Locator app makes it possible for you to find the best station no matter where you are. Its' database has more than 1,500 streams across 15,600 US stations. The app is constantly being updated as well so that all the FCC acknowledged stations are either removed or added.

The way the app works is that it uses your current location and then provides you with a list of radio stations that offer live streams. It also provides you with information about the station such as its name, frequency, genre, website, and phone number. The app takes away all the hassle from you trying to find the information on your own.

In the app's recent update there were bug fixes made along with some general improvements. The app currently has 3.5 out of five stars from users but as you search through the customer comments there seem to be some bugs and issues with the app working properly.

How to Use the App

The Radio Locator app is simple to use in a sense that it finds local radio stations with ease. You can use your current location to search or if you'd rather you can search by zip code or city. A handy feature is the fact it can find local stations without the need for an Internet connection.

When your results show up you can filter them by frequency, stream availability, or genre. Use can sync radio stations to your favorites by using iCloud and you can even search iTunes and YouTube for whatever the song is that is currently being streamed. The app is able to stream in the background so you can also go about other things on your device.

I find the app to be really cool and fun but obviously it needs a bit of stability improvements in order to become a strong offering.
