Best radio app in the App Store

After using several others over the years, Triode comes in and takes the internet radio crown. It has art, syncs stations between devices (yay!), has a good search function, and does it all with an uncluttered, delightfully simple interface. It makes me happy every time I use it to play public radio while making coffee in the morning or playing some music to work or relax.

Triode has some UI oddities and needs a little more polish to make some of the interactions feel truly modern. An option for custom art from the web or any image file would be a nice touch too (some radio stations don’t provide a great default).

Since it’s at the top of a somewhat weak set of options in the App Store, it gets five stars. If the devs (thank you!) keep hammering away with regular updates, it could go from great to sublime.
