    Hi

    I'm searching radio app where i can create own playlist and and manually any desired stream address. Meaning for example if i know that stream address is: http://streamer.com/148288 I can add this even if it's not found using radio apps own search.

    Can you suggest one?

    Can you double-check that stream address? I don't think it's correct.

    That was just an example. Main point is that there should be possibility to add your own stream addresses. Aka favourites list etc.

    Like in the "TuneIn Radio" app?

    A particular app may have particular types of streams that it can or can't play. A real "example" could be checked by contributors before they respond.

    Yes, exactly like TuneIn Radio. Only problem with TuneIn Radio is that if I understood correctly then you can only buy _app related_ ads off with monthly subscription. I'd buy Tunein if I could pay one time and do rid of those ads inside app. I guess you can't have everything.

    I'm not familiar with what kind of stream formats there are. So if app has ability to add custom streams then I'd expect that app developer would specify what kind of stream formats are supported. I'd be fine with that.

    I have TuneIn Radio Pro. It was a one-time payment and the only "ads" are for stations - and that is on the home screen. Once you select a stream, you do not see them.

    In addition to the stream format issue, there are some stations that belong to one broadcasting conglomerate or another (Such as iHeart/Clear Channel) and the only way to listen is through their app...but not all stations on the iHeart app fall in this category.

    I would think that many folks are like me and need to have two or three of the streaming radio apps to be able to listen to all the specific things that they want to stream.
