Transistor - Simple Radio App

Version 4.0.x ("Andy Warhol")

Transistor is an app with a minimalistic approach for listening to radio programs over the internet, which may not be to everyone's liking. It has no radio station discovery feature. Transistor only offers a very simple search option and it imports audio streaming links when you tap them in a web browser.

Transistor is free software. It is published under the MIT open source license. Want to help? Please check out the notes in first.

Frequent Questions

How can I add a radio station

There are three ways to add a radio station to Transistor: Use Search, add playlist file address (M3U, PLS), enter a raw stream address. The last way will not support the update feature.

How does the update feature work?

The update feature will try to fetch the current stream address of a station as well as the updated name and station image. The feature will not work for stations added via a raw stream address, or for stations imported from Transistor v3.

Where do the radio station search results come from?

Transistor searches the online database. You can help out the community by adding the missing station to their database.

Which audio formats are supported?

Transistor can play back streams encoded in MP3, AAC and Ogg/Opus. It also has experimental support for HLS streams.
