Rinse and REPEAT
Nunyzbizness on 10/18/2017
Looking for a replacement. They play the same songs on a station until you hate them. If you go to another station and come back to the original then it's starting all over with the same songs. How did this ever pass the Quality Control check? SMH.
lousy interface. loses connection easily.
Jentropy on 10/18/2017
i have a great wifi signal, and i can stream youtube, netflix, twitch, ustream, etc all easily and without issues. but iheart radio drops all the time. then once it gets the signal again, i have to listen to an extra ad before itll play my station. the layout is awful— i have a couple favorite stations and it becomes really cumbersome with every update to just listen to my station. loading the station page is slow and annoying too. i have no incentive to pay for access (even if i believed in paying for radio stations) because the app is bad.
Love it
Mortarman1983mm on 10/18/2017
Plays most of the songs that I like. I wish it keeps my likes just like it did in the past. But other than that I don’t have a problem with listening to “ad free commercials.”
BZICURN on 10/18/2017
Just because you added more feature to the new subscription fees, why take away what was already there initially? I can no longer listen to my local radio station? Do I have to pay for listening to a local radio station?
Can only use with WiFi now?
hiowie on 10/17/2017
Was this a change made to the app? I can not use it unless I’m connected to a WiFi service. I see iHeartAuto but I do not like that at all! If I’m doing something wrong please let me know but if this is the way it is now then my rating will be a 1 star ☹️
Going downhill fast
notsoloyalnow on 10/17/2017
This app used to be my favorite. But now it's so busy loading pop ups between every song that it takes five minutes to even load the app! With this newest update, I've been waiting for even longer and it still isn't playing the station I selected, let alone any music at all!! On top of that, every time you open the app it's another pop up trying to trick you into signing up for the free trial of the subscription. I don't want to do the free trial because I have no intention of ever purchasing a subscription. I'm tired of accidentally clicking on the constant popups and almost signing up for something I don't want. It gets in the way of being able to use the actual app. The free users know that the trade off for a free app is the ads. But this app forces you to endure ads AND constant pestering about something I can't afford and don't want. I'm getting closer and closer to switching to a competitor because of how obnoxious it is. Iheart needs to create a way to opt out of subscription popups; otherwise they are going to lose a lot of free users (and a lot of ad revenue as a result.) On top of that, the ads are incredibly repetitive. If you play the same advertisement 20 songs in a row, I will never buy that product because of how irritated I am at the repetition. I'm not mad at the ads, but for the love of music and sanity, can you please change up the advertisements? Get more ads from more companies. Program the app to play the same ad no more than three times in a listening session. STOP ANNOYING THE HECK OUT OF YOUR USERS. Edit: It has now been fifteen minutes and no music has been played. The second the app is switched away from it just completely shuts down. I cant just sit here and watch it load forever. I need to use my other apps. I'm looking into other music apps. I'm tired of being disappointed again and again by a company that used to have such a high standard for themselves. Edit 2: app finally loaded audio after 45 minutes. First thing it plays is an advertisement. Typical.
Does not support iOS 11
Dtmf on 10/17/2017
I was having issues hearing static pops over and over. Contacted support. They told me this app does not support iOS 11 and they are working on an update.
Tha Best app!
650shapeshifters650 on 10/17/2017

Enough of Tom Petty
Wliz231 on 10/16/2017
Ok I get it Tom Petty was good but You are ruining Classic Vinyl with endless Tom Petty. There is much more music that can be played.
Shut off
Goldenboy9.0 on 10/16/2017
The app constantly closes itself out. Then I have to restart my phone before it will work again. Maybe works for half an hour before the problem starts again.
Ads, ads, ads
Bfoster1 on 10/16/2017
Everytime I search for something I have to close the ad offering me a 30 day fred trial
Cuts radio station off after a few minutes
dave6267 on 10/16/2017
When listening to a radio station after about 10 minutes it cuts off fix this problem and I will give 5 stars
Doesn’t play in the background anymore!
lwrocks on 10/16/2017
Today I opened the app to listen to my favorite radio show and noticed that it only plays when I have the app open. What happened?
Good app but
Miks59 on 10/16/2017
I'm using free version of app and basically happy with what I'm getting but with latest update or I've just noticed it app start turning sound off. For example when I hear an unfamiliar words I like to switch to the dictionary and find out it's meaning and I also would like to continue to listen to whatever I was listening but my phone goes silent until I switch back to radio and manually start station again. Please fix. Also when I’m in the bus and get into the area when app looses connection it used to reconnect and continue while now it waits for me to press play button - don’t think Thai is convenient and / or useful. Please fix if possible.
Listen everyday
Shortdoggchi-town on 10/16/2017
Why don’t you show the name of the artist on the live station,s
ive heard so much good stuff and now im hurt
vampirenight721 on 10/15/2017
i cant even make a playlist but if you want to you have to pay 10 bucks a month i say ill stay with pandora because im not spending 10 bucks a month to be able to change a song when i get that for free on pandora
Horrible for Podcasts
Anonymous9441 on 10/15/2017
Recently, a favorite iHeart Media podcast went exclusively to the iHeart App (used to be concurrent on iTunes). The experience here is awful. Can't download to listen offline, making the user experience terrible. The app takes forever to load when connected to Apple CarPlay and the sound quality frequently becomes digitized and unlistenable. All-in-all it is very substandard. Guess it's time to find some podcasts that aren't iHeart Media.
Love It
Brianna.albano on 10/15/2017
It’s amazing and I’m glad I downloaded it but the only problem is that after a while it shuts off.But other wise it’s amazing.
Good concept
Theman1977 on 10/15/2017
Too many flaws with this app,,, no choice in music if you click on a artist it plays other artists, not enough skips before it wants to charge you it always plays crap I don’t want to hear
About to delete
Ktotheho on 10/15/2017
I’m very annoyed at the trickery of these guys trying to get me to subscribe to their monthly paid plan. Every few weeks I catch myself almost subscribing in error.
Dis is cancer
Jonathan m 6 on 10/15/2017
This gives me EAR EBOLA
Legion of zoom on 10/15/2017
The app is terrible. Listened to literally 8 ads in a row. Then, when I thought I was in the clear, ads stayed on over the actual radio content. I was hearing double
Ads ads ads
Mark in Oly on 10/15/2017
Trying to listen to a postgame football show and it’s been 10 plus minutes of solid ads. Finally hear the actual show and ads playing in the background. Really annoying and disappointing
Unhappy user
Wefickdjcjx on 10/15/2017
I Heart Radio does not work!
Martuuuuuuuuuxxi on 10/14/2017
Wouldn’t let me create an account, super glitchy
Techmo Chris on 10/14/2017
I love the addition of podcasts. I never listened to them until they were finally added here but one thing arises. The auto play. Please add the ability to turn off the auto play that way the last podcast wouldn't automatically play that we can turn on and off.
Albums possibly missing
King Crad 99 on 10/14/2017
This app has many genres of music for many people to enjoy. But while searching, I could not find certain albums in artist’s stations, for example Fall Out Boy’s Take This To Your Grave on Fall Out Boy Radio. Other than that I have not found many other flaws.
Streaming issues
Jam-a-fram on 10/13/2017
I keep updating the app but I haven't been able to stream it in a year. I have strong wifi connection and it plays on my laptop but not the app. Please advise.
Great! Except just this one thing...
Stiggins on 10/13/2017
It’s great to listen to the radio stations, I’d normally listen to in my car, on my phone. The one problem that I have that is annoying is that it will randomly switch stations and I’ll constantly need to pull my iPhone out of my pocket to push play because it will randomly pause itself. I also wish I was able to control it more using my Apple AirPods instead of stopping whatever I might be doing to grab my phone.
Not worth the time most of the time
joeboxer3id on 10/13/2017
App keeps crashing poor reception when in 4 g network
Upgrading to a subscription
dragonbunny94 on 10/13/2017
I’m fine with advertising and ads but the constant begging for me to upgrade from free to subscription is VERY annoying I wish there was a way to turn off the notifications for the subscription and pro stuff I’m good with what I’ve got. I’ll watch the ads :)
Great app but?
problemchild 19642012 on 10/12/2017
They say on the air that it’s free. But every time I try do something they want me start a free trial. I’m like not. Can’t afford another one.😩😩😩😩 other wise love the app.
Great music app
nev121121 on 10/12/2017
Great music app all the top songs plus millions of good older music I love iHeartRadio radio
Updated to plus, still can’t listen to albums
Teek69 on 10/12/2017
I upgrade so I can listen to albums and still can’t. Looks like I will go back to free version.
What Happened?
Chjvhjgcgvfvvbcgf on 10/12/2017
This app used to be great but they removed a lot of good features. A few problems that I have include not being able to make stations from songs anymore, and the app is slow because it loads so many ads. When I try to scroll through the recently played stations, it stops often and loads the "you have been selected for a free month of premium" but I don't want to use it yet. Another problem I have is that I can't seem to find the list of recently played songs where you can like or dislike the songs. Since the app loads ads often I press the skip song multiple times thinking the app is just being slow and I accidentally skip a song that I like and want to press like to add it to my favorites playlist. If you removed the recently played songs feature, please bring it back.
Mainly for radio
supersteveeb2000 on 10/12/2017
I use this app since a lot of times I am not sure what I want to listen to and like specific radio stations. For that, this app is good. Sometimes though, I listen to custom artist stations. Usually, before bed, I put on Louis Armstrong radio to help me sleep. The only problem is that I’ve noticed they only shuffle about 3 of his songs and a few songs from other artists with a similar style. To be fair, I am not paying for subscriptions for more perks, but I’d expect more songs
Authentic Smooth Jazz

Too much liberal politics
ipad update 11.0.2
Yuygvthm on 10/11/2017
When is iHeartRadio going to update so that I can continue listening to my favorite music and radio stations? Thanks for getting back so quickly with a possible solution to my issue. Reloading the app was just what was needed. Great customer service!
This updated version doesn’t like Waze and other apps
Excopinlv on 10/11/2017
This app has been 4 1/2 stars through most of its versions but this version (8.4.0 / Build 1) doesn’t like Waze and a couple of other apps. Normally I could play and forget while doing other things. Unfortunately now, when I’m using the other apps, and the other app does something, iHeartRadio locks up, and has to be restarted, or stops playing and I have to restart the program. It’s maddening while on the freeway. I love using this app, I just want it to be better.
I love this app
Dnjtay on 10/11/2017
Finally something where I can Listen to the radio at work, waiting for the Doctor, at the grocery store, almost anywhere. I can't wait until I can afford to pay for the premium service because if the free service is this good...unbelievable.
Tricked me into a $5.99 per month subscription
jt1of5 on 10/11/2017
I rarely use this app. Last time I did, I just wanted to listen to a station and was tapping it. The station wouldn't start. I don't know if another finger tapped somewhere accidentally on the screen, but suddenly a window popped up. It showed my user name and the thumb print icon. I assumed it wanted me to log in which I normally don't do. Instead of reading the text in the pop up, I assumed the app now required a login, so I put my thumb on the home button. The next thing I knew, I had subscribed for $5.99 per month. I wasn't too pleased. The up-sell mechanism in this app is a bit intrusive, and needs some kind of confirmation.
Keeps dropping connection
SJA77707 on 10/11/2017
Within last two ios updates in Sep, Oct 2017 time frame, the app loses connection to station about every 10 minutes. Very annoying! Other than connection lost issue a good app. Resolve connectivity issues and then a solid app.
Issues with update
Hhalialxosndisowo on 10/11/2017
I've had the iheart app for years. Now when they decide to charge for service and upgrade the app it now runs like crap and can't find my podcasts. App keeps shutting off within a minute of turning on. Frustrating and makes me go to Spotify when it won't work. These issues definitely make me thankful I didn't pay to upgrade.
Great app
Nicki5n5 on 10/11/2017
Been using for a couple years now and I have not had a problem. Love searching by a variety of criteria.
Stop the thumbs down
Jenny Raisanen on 10/10/2017
I would rate this app higher if the app would skip to the next song upon receiving a thumbs down, but nooooo, the song continues to play even though I've just indicated that I don't like it!
I heart radio
ASECertified21 on 10/10/2017
I absolutely love this I can listen to my music even when I am working in the automotive shop anywhere anytime. 👍🏻
Imashortone on 10/10/2017
This is a horrible app. They WILL charge you multiple times a month and than give you a run around about getting your money back. It uses A TON of data to use, and some times it takes up to 30 minutes to listen to ONE song. I had to give one star to submit this.
I heart
Dmanluskyo on 10/10/2017
Love it can get any genre when I want!!!!
