Radio Cloud Lite, developed by Giles Chanot, is a free, interactive radio app for all iOS devices that allows you user access to nearly 200 of the very best, most popular radio stations from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and Spain.
Working through a Wi-Fi or 3G / LTE connection, the app constantly streams music from a variety of stations that are set up on a stunning 3D user interface that hovers in front of your eyes amidst – yes, a background of clouds – either in landscape or portrait mode.
As soon as the app fires up, it’s streaming music from a random radio station around the world. With a simple swipe of the finger, you can delegate which station to turn to, and what’s awesome is that the current radio station fades out as another smoothly fades in, without interruption in listening. From classic rock to talk radio to sports broadcasting, the Radio Cloud Lite doesn’t miss a beat. It is intuitive, natural, and just plain smooth. Plus, you can pause and resume any radio station at any time. Radio Cloud Lite even supports multitasking because it can run in the background if you get out of the app.
Upgrade to Radio Cloud for just $0.99, and you have a number of added on features including the ability to:
- Filter by country and genre
- Uninterrupted listening because of no ads
- Airplay to wireless speakers, AppleTV, etc.
There are, however, some crucial features missing. This includes the ability to save your favorite stations and the stations do not provide artist / title information for each song. Hopefully this will eventually change with added improvements.
So if you’re looking for a simple music app to zone out to, Radio Cloud Lite is a good music companion.
