NextRadio

Lightweight application does not overload the memory and does not slow down the system. Thanks to the program you can easily plunge into the world of local and international radio stations. You can download the application to your device for free. Listen to your favorite music without an Internet connection or difficulty.

The application is convenient because it independently groups stations according to category – sports and news stations, general topics, educational channels and directions. It requires a minimum operating system, the software shows good synchronization, and the Internet is used only when the signal quality deteriorates or disappears.

Price: free.

Pros of

  • minimal installation requirements;
  • support for the service in many countries around the world;
  • grouping of categories by radio station topics;
  • high signal quality without a connection to the global network.

Minuses

  • compatibility with not all devices;
  • built-in shopping.
When you launch the app, you are immediately asked to rate it. This is the only downside, because I don’t understand why I should rate an app that I haven’t used once yet. In terms of quality and functionality, I like the program, I choose from the categories I like, I do not connect to the Internet. Great signal, great selection of stations. Using the application for about six months, I can give it a rating of 10 out of 10!

The app is cool, but the buffering is just quiet awful. I blamed it on the internet before, but it turned out the application is great even without network. The problem was the lags in the system, wrote to the developers, with a bit of a bummer they solved it. I kept the app out of respect for the radio and the access to a really cool interface. I listen to it now infrequently, but I give it a second chance!

Yandex.Radio

Yandex.Radio

The developer introduced the radio version not so long ago, but it has already managed to become popular. With the app, users listen to music online, offline, and for free. Special analysis of users’ interests allows the application to make selections with similar artists and music styles.

The only downside is the presence of advertising. It's terribly annoying, I go to the application to listen to a radio station, not to spend half an hour trying to turn off banners and unwanted offers. But in terms of interface and convenience (I'll close my eyes to the ads) application is good.
