We were able to stream over a reliable Wi-Fi connection after the screen darkened, but some have reported inconsistencies here. We hope AOL models the interface along the lines of the free Shoutcast app, and introduces a search feature.
AOL Radio may not do much more than stream Internet radio, but it doesn't come to the table empty handed. With plenty of Internet Radio stations from around the world to browse by musical genre and save as favorites, this streaming Internet Radio app goes beyond others to bring you extra programmed stations and the option to find songs you mark as favorite on iTunes or AOL Music. Sure, it's dowdy and lacks a search feature, but its support for local radio stations is what keeps us coming back. This is tremendously useful if you want to listen to citywide favorites in addition to international hits.
