College radio on the go!  rating of College Radio Tuner
By: jaberg - Jan 31, 2009
Version: 1.0
I love having access to a selection of college radio stations from across the country. In my experience, performance is similar to any "stream" receiver--if your network is solid, you're good to go. Audio quality is on par with other streaming apps. Program quality varies station to station (and hour to hour). I can't say I use it all the time. I listen to a lot of podcasts and of course my own playlists. This app is like the bottle of hot sauce I always carry when traveling. I feel better knowing that it's in my kit, ready to add a little spice to the bland "food" I'm being offered. And of course it's free, like radio should be!

new age!  rating of College Radio Tuner

although terrestrial radio IS doing this, college radio offers more of a variety of programs - very modern and helpful to keep the college radio stations going; especially those that broadcast over the internet. its in its development stages, and its only going to get better. easy to use and very cool.


Count your blessings here...  rating of College Radio Tuner

The truth is,there are not many new free apps that are that good! if the voices on the app do frustrate people,it is not important.
Always look at the overall quality of something and also be thankful to have free things as they are not free to produce!
If I am French and dig it,so other people can,right?

Pretty good app  rating of College Radio Tuner
By: ryan73 - Feb 5, 2009

Not the prettiest app around, but it is easy to use and does what it says. I haven't really had any issues with long buffering times on 3G. I would recommend they get rid of the voice that says "connecting" and "stop" - just annoying.

Great idea ... if it worked.  rating of College Radio Tuner
By: skeeelz - Aug 1, 2009
Version: 1.0.1
Unfortunately, I was never able to get it to. After trying 10 times or so to launch it, in different areas and at different times, and having no success, I deleted it. After accidentally uploading the app again when I updated my phone to 3.0 and synched the apps, I gave it another try. Still doesn't work, and is again off my phone.


Annoying  rating of College Radio Tuner
By: Jimmy Jett - Jul 26, 2009

The "connecting", "buffering", "stop" announcments are quite annoying.


Damn!  rating of College Radio Tuner

Great idea, if it only worked... Needs more stations as well. Crashes when choosing station and the voice cues are very annoying.
