How do I use the Set alarm and record timer features?

Last Updated: Jun 20, 2017 03:04PM PDT

NOTE: In order for the Alarm feature to work, you'll have to enable notifications for TuneIn, and set auto-lock to Never in your iOS Settings. To do this, go to Settings > Notifications > TuneIn Radio > and set the Allow Notifications switch to ON. Then go to Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock > Never.

 



iPhone and iPod users:

1. Open TuneIn and select a station.
2. Tap the Menu button on the Now Playing screen.
3. Select "Set Alarm."
4. Set the Enabled switch to ON or OFF.
5. Choose the time of day to enable the alarm.
6. Under Repeat, you can choose which days you’d like the alarm to be enabled.
7. Tap the Save button.
8. Return to the Options menu page and select "Clock Display."
9. Leave on Clock Display screen and do not lock the screen. The screen may be dimmed all the way down if needed. Make sure you have your location services enabled for TuneIn in your device settings.

 

iPad users:

1. Open TuneIn and select a station.
2. Tap the Clock icon below the station artwork.
3. Set the Enabled switch to ON or OFF.
4. Choose the time of day to enable the alarm.
5. Under Repeat, you can choose which days to enable the alarm.
6. Set the Record switch to ON or OFF.
7. Choose the length of time to record.
8. Tap the Save button.

 

For Tunein Pro users, there's also the option to schedule recordings, which enables you to automatically record a station for a chosen amount of time.

To schedule recordings:

1. Open TuneIn Pro and select a station.
2. For iPhone/iPod users, tap the Menu button on the bottom-right of the Now Playing screen. For iPad users, tap the Clock icon below the station artwork on the Now Playing screen.
3. Set the Enabled switch to ON.
4. Choose the time of day you would like the recording to start.
5. Under Repeat, you can choose if you’d like the scheduled recording to repeat for certain days.
6. Set the Record switch to ON.
7. Choose the length of time you’d like to record for.
8. Tap the Save button.

 

Please note: For the TuneIn alarm to function properly, your device must be plugged into a charging outlet with TuneIn open and the volume turned up for the backup alarm to be audible. It's currently not possible to set the alarm feature for multiple times. The Schedule Recording feature may not be available for some stations due to the rights and restrictions of our content providers.
