    I have an iPad 2. I want to get an app that allows me to listen to the radio. I can't decide between TuneIn Radio Pro or Pandora. TuneIn Radio Pro costs 99 cents. Pandora is free. I don't care about the cost between the two. I'm leaning towards TuneIn Radio Pro because it has multiple-tasking ability. But I'd like to know what your opinion is. Which is better? Or is there a third option out there that I should consider? Thanks.

    Absolutely - TuneIn - it's wonderful. Brilliantly engineering and loads of cool features - there's no comparison..

    I prefer tune in for the local station search, priceless when traveling and looking for local radio stations for news/weather/traffic/social/etc

    Another vote for TuneIn, and I've tried just about all of those available on both the iPad and Android.

    Just to add my view - Tunein for the win!

    I use it every morning while I get ready to go to school - listening to my local station for music and traffic & weather reports.

    Great $.99 (USD) investment, IMNSHO.

    The free version of TuneIn contains ads (bottom corner ,not in the sounds) and takes away the ability to record the radio

    Tunein is great, I've been using it for about 4 days straight, and Ihavent had a one glitch with it. I run it on 3G as well as on wifi and I havent had any buffer problems at all. thumbs up here from me.
    Has good features, one I like especially, is you program it to turn on at a certain time to catch a certain program.

    IMO they're two completely different apps for different purposes. At least I use them differently. I use TuneIn mostly to listen to my local stations for traffic/weather and ESPN. I use Pandora to listen to my favorite types of music via the different stations I've created. Definitely get both since they're so inexpensive.
