What is the best radio in the world? We think that the best radio is the one that plays music that you love and avoids a lot of ads. Luckily, there are so many to choose from – it is just perfect for music lovers who listen to different kinds of music. In order to make your experience even better, we decided to check some of the most popular radios which can be played on your iPhone and see which one wins the prize!

Even if you are the pickiest music-phile in the world, there is a chance that you will find something new for yourself.
Nowadays people can access radio from their laptops, phones, iPads and pretty much anything what can be connected to the Internet. They usually choose to either stream online or to use different apps – it means that their favourite wave follows them wherever they go (well, almost – we would not recommend going hiking or somewhere in the woods – the signal might be not that good). Today we will talk about both of them. We decided to focus on the radios which were specifically created so that they can be played on iPhones. So let’s get started!
