FavouriteRadioDroid 2 is an advanced radio streaming app that has tons of features.

RadioDroid 2 faces stiff competition from Radioplayer. RadioDroid 2 lacks the polish of Radioplayer’s interface. But access to the acclaimed radio browser catalogue is a key feature.

And we love the fact that RadioDroid 2 is open source software (published under the GNU General Public License v3.0), whereas Radioplayer is a proprietary app.
