If you want more control over your music than TuneIn can offer, Spotify (free) is the way to go. The app plays radio stations (playlists of songs based on a particular song or artist) and, thanks to an update in December 2013, can stream songs from the personal playlists you create -- all for free. Upgrade to the premium, $10-per-month subscription and you can stream any song without ads and download playlists to your phone so that you can listen without a signal.
