Like its contemporaries Pandora and iHeartRadio, TuneIn offers users the ability to stream music. Unlike many other services of its kind, it features support for streaming a worldwide selection of FM radio stations over the Internet.
For times when you're unsure whether or not you want to listen to traditional FM radio stations or pure music in the form of Internet radio, TuneIn offers you that choice. Some services specialize in real FM radio streaming via the Internet. Other Internet radio services may offer desirable features such as personalized recommendations for streaming music playlists, and those are certainly viable alternatives if the ability to stream FM radio stations is not important to you.
