    "One of the best car FM transmitter apps and it syncs well with my car's Bluetooth without much lag or delay. There are plenty of categories to choose from like sports, and talk show channels to name a few. Even if you opt for the free version, you still get access to 100K+ stations."

    "A nice little free FM radio app that I use to cast to my car stereo. Found a station for all of the things that I could think of. I purchased the app to remove the ads and to support the developer. It's easy to use and sounds great."

    "I love this FM transmitter app. It doesn't have as many stations as others but it offers unlimited skips and let you customize and tailor playlist and stations to your liking and it works extremely well. When I hop into my car on my way home, I'll be able to listen to only things that I want and none of those that I don't."

    "A simple, no-frills radio app. It doesn't have many features but it has the basics down. You get access to thousands of radio stations from all over the world, an equalizer to fine tune the sound, a sleep timer, and a setting to toggle quality steam for slower connections. For most users, these things are enough."

    "The satellite radio company SiriusXM made an app to make their content available and more accessible to its users. If you already have a subscription for your car then you get steaming. If not, you can choose a plan that best suits you. The app has gotten better over time since it launched and only getting better."
