    Hi,

    I am a new user of MacBook pro. Recently purchase and still in the process of learning its features and some of the basic stuff.

    My question is regarding radio apps. I use Tune-in pro app on iOS devices such as my iPhone and iPad. However, after searching in the app store on Mac, I haven't seen any such app.

    Could anyone suggest any radio app that plays live radio stations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sunny

    Radium is a nice app that can be controlled via Menubar.
    It is not free though.I think it costs $9.99.

    Would love to have a free app instead. But thanks for your suggestion.

    I use Radium too.

    But figure out the stream URL and you can play most stations within iTunes.

    Another vote for Radium. I also use it for my SiriusXM subscription. It does crash sometimes, but it's been getting better each update.

    That would be the last resort in case I don't find anything else. I was just looking for an app as that gives a better experience.

    Do they have a trial version?

    I will try the browser. Thanks for your response.

    Thanks for your response. Will try if Radium provides a free trial.

    Didn't iTunes at one point or it still does, have a radio station feature in it? And I am not talking about iTunes Radio, but I could of sworn there was a tab that had internet radio stations listed.

    iTunes still does but I don't think there is any feature to play local radio stations.

    Gotcha... Haven't used it in a very long time.

    If you have an iPhone there is an App I use call HiDef Radio -Free news & Music Stations and they do have local stations.

    If you have the url for the stream you can also use VLC to play it easily.

    I am using MyTuner Radio and I am very happy with it. It's like Radium, but it offers more radio stations. I just discovered SonicWeb and it looks awesome, but I just bought MyTuner so I will hold of on the SonicWeb purchase.
