Want to listen to the radio or need to keep up with live news when you’re on the go or at work?  There’s a smartphone app that can help you do just that.

When I got to work yesterday, I wanted to be able to follow the situation in the south.  Not wanting to refresh the home pages of news sites every few minutes, I tried to load the live broadcasts of Reshet Bet and Galei Tzahal.  My efforts were quickly thwarted by the need to install plugins and a lack of permissions on my work computer.  So, I turned back to my smartphone, to an app I’ve used for a few months to listen to Israeli radio on the go.

tfsRadio Israel is available in both the Android and iTunes stores.  (As a note, I use the Android version and haven’t tested the iTunes one.)  Among other stations it includes:

  • News / Talk: Reshet Bet, Galei Tzahal, Israel National Radio / Arutz Sheva (English), Reshet Aleph
  • Music: Galgalatz, Eco 99 FM, Reshet Gimmel
  • Religious: Radio Kol Hai
  • And dozens more…

tfsRadio Israel works on Wi-Fi or 3G, with headphones and without.

Another app option is TuneIn Radio.  It is available for Android and iPhones as well.

  1. I mostly use tunein, after tfsradio had mostly breaks in service (I live in Maale Chever, near Hebron). But I keep tfs on my phone, just in case.

  2. What a world and how amazing is an IPhone. I have two apps: one is called IsraelRadio and the other TuneIn Radio. They are both great and I can have one on the phone and the other on the computer. Both are ITune Apps. Because I am registered as in Israel, TuneIn radio gives me the Israeli stations when I choose location. May HaShem keep our citizens in the south and the IDF safe. May life return to normal without Hamas in Gaza.
