If you want internet radio and podcasts, this app is an excellent choice. It has lots of features, works reliably, and is free. The interface is somewhat busy and requires a little learning time, but the that's true of many other ambitious apps. Overall, it's a winner for sure.

I'm used to Spotify so this is really horrible but there's two podcasts that I can still listen to on here they're just not updated. At least it doesn't crash like Spotify and it's not blasting with ads but it's really hard to find any programming. Not a lot of features. It will not continually play songs or a podcast go to the next one you have to open the app and select the next chapter to get it to play. The radio stations are every single one is nothing but ads.But it's better than nothing.

The 9.3.2 update took away the one awesome feature that distinguished Audials from other radio apps - the display of audio file type (codec) and bitrate in Search and My Favorites list. It's why Audials was my favorite radio app. Now it's only visible in the Now Playing info card/banner. I'm willing to pay for this important feature. Can you please bring back codec and bitrate display to Search and My Favorites lists?
