SomaFM App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

SomaFM's official iPhone player for iOS 11 and above is available in the iTunes App Store. You can view all our channels by genre, popularity (based on current number of listeners), or limited to just your favorites; See the title and artist of the currently playing song, as well as the last 10 songs played just like on our website. You can also bookmark favorite songs for purchase on iTunes later (and we get a commission on those sales).

If you're on LTE/4G/3G or WiFi, we give you access to our high quality 64kb AAC-HE and low-bandwidth 32k AAC-HE streams, which sound amazing. Higher quality than many of the other "big" internet and satellite radio services out there. 32k aacPlus streams sound as good as 128k MP3 streams in most cases.

Not only can you use it when you're mobile; but it's great when used at home with an iPad or iPod touch hooked to your stereo, either docked or via Airplay streaming to an AppleTV or Airport Express.
