Re: Does anyone here use tunein to listen to radio? and profile?

I am not certain if it is in the same topic but i am a paid up & registered user of hamsphere 4.0 app on my Samsung s5 which is very good for mobile HF receiving along with also a free version of Global Tuners. Only fault is they both use much battery space.
