It is not simply an app that gets a stream from an Internet server, like you might see on an iPhone. It is the real thing. You do need to have some sort of headphones plugged in because it uses the wire as the antenna. But you would also need that to listen anyway. Becky 6 years ago Thank You-so helpful!!!
