Record to Listen Later
Audials records entire broadcasts on demand, or saves the stream with automatic song separation. You can play the music or broadcast again later, even when you are offline.

No ads, no in-app purchases
Audials does not display any banner ads in the app, nor does it play commercials.

However, some broadcasters earn some money by playing radio advertising. Through advertising services, English advertising sometimes even runs on foreign language channels.

I been using this app for over an year now. Up to now I'm getting "error connecting". This is the first time I'm getting that error. I have the latest version. One of the best apps that I downloaded on my phone. Please fix. Update. It wasn't the app itself. Instead the WiFi was the issues. After getting WiFi fixed, I haven't got any errors.

Hi Steve, this sounds like a problem with a specific station, whereas other stations do still work, right? It might a temporary issue on the station's server side, or maybe their streaming setup has changed to a new address. Get in touch on for more help. Thanks!

Just found this. First time with this app and unless there are some hidden faults, it is an amazing program. Very suprised at the ease of use, fast operation and user friendly interface. Kudos to the developer for the hard work this surely takes. I have used or tried all the other radio apps and this one makes them look like minor leauge players. This app has 99% of local radio stations I listen to. Same for podcasts. No ads, no interuptions, no described- Beautiful!

Love the ability to schedule recordings, works perfectly! I would like to be able to schedule multiple recordings, but when I tap on the button to upgrade, it sends me to a link to purchase a PC version for about $60. Not sure how that upgrades the Android app, and that seems quite a bit to spend for just one feature. I would pay $5-10 for a pro version in the Play Store with that one feature. EDIT: Thank you for your reply, I get a message that says This Item Isn't Available in Your Country
