They are free apps, so download them and try them and find out. For me, I've only used TuneIn and it is very accessible.

They're both accessible in my experience. I'm a radio buff and I love music, so I'm always looking for apps that are accessible in this department. Here are the apps I have:

1. Pandora

This is one of my favorite apps to use. I use the free version of Pandora and it's accessible.
2. RadioTunes

I like this app and it's accessible, but it runs in portrait mode. Which I don't like. But that being said, they have a lot of stations I like with muiic I like to listen to.
3. TuneIn

I love TuneIn for a lot of reasons. First, it's accessible. And you don't have to create an account. The interface isn't too hateful. Like Pandora, I also use the free version. I like that I can listen to TuneIn spicific stations, actual radio stations, some police scanner frequencies and podcasts.

4. iHeart Radio

I like this app and it's accessible, but the user interface can be a little tricky at first. I think they could make the user interface a bit easier to navigate, but as long as you practice, you'll get the hang of it and get used to it in no time. I love being able to search for radio stations, create a custom station for an artist and listen to podcasts. You can search for iHeart Radio spicific stations, and regular radio stations. However, I'd recommend getting iHeart Radio and TuneIn because you probably won't find every station you like on iHeart Radio. And if you want to search for spicific artists, you'll have to use iHeart Radio.

It's all about what your needs and preferences are. If you're like me and you like listening to regular radio stations and artsst spicific radio stations, and you can't find everything in 1 app, you'll need both. And the free versions should give you what you need. And you can link your account with iHeart Radio to your echo which will make it a bit more accessible. TuneIn ii already bulit in so no worries about linking there.

Hope this helps!
