    AOL Radio
    Made by: AOL
    Price: Free

    Home Screen
    AOL Radio gives you many genres to choose from and gives you some recommendations. I would think that just about everyone could find a music channel they like.

    Favorites
    You can mark down stations or songs as favorites so you don't have to look through the genres to find the station. Marking down the songs is kind of pointless though, all it does is give you the options to buy it on iTunes or on AOL.

    Recently Played songs
    This screen will track the songs that have been playing. It is useful if you really like the song but couldn't get to your iPod to see what was playing. Then if you click on it it gives you the option to buy on iTunes or AOL.

    Local Stations
    This allows you to find stations in your area (with GPS or by choosing a city) and listen to some that broadcast over the internet. A very useful feature. Almost makes up for the iPod not having an FM radio.

    Now Playing Screen
    I really like how this screen looks. It goes with the sleekness of the iPod/iPhone. It gives you the song info and album art.

    Purchasing
    This is the screen that you can get when you choose to buy the song. It gives you the option to buy it on iTunes or AOL.

    Verdict

    4.75/5
    Has a few issues like not being able to run in the background (stupid apple) and sometimes when you open it your iPod will just reboot. Other than that it is a great app. Would recommend for all.

    The best app to the music lovers atm

    This is ATM the best app to me right now. I'm loving it. I used to be a great Mariah Carey's fan and guess what? There is an "All Mariah Carey" radio station and I just cant stop listening.

    And there is a tons of other cool radio stations to all tastes. I didn't tried others radio apps from the store, but this one is rocking the house. I give it a 5/5.
