    Helps me keep up to date on AFN news, exchange rates, gas prices and more. Really helpful.

  • Adequate

    by mencha

    Adequate

  • Great app for those overseas

    by Sagesyd

    Works for my purposes.

  • Still has a few bugs, but....

    by DSeltzer

    Like the television schedules feature of this app, but it's Monday, Dec. 30, and they're totally blank. Obviously, someone is enjoying their holiday break by not watching AFN. Also, I like the weather feature, but it asks to use my current location each time despite having an option in settings allowing the location use. Left hand, meet right hand. AFN 360 is plugged as an alternative to receiving an over-the-air signal, especially for American car radios unable to tune in the correct frequency, but that only works with an unlimited data plan. The best features of the app (read: most informative) are the exchange rate listing and traffic update. The TV schedules, too, when they're updated as well as the weather after I agree to allow use of my location. Tis is a very useful app that needs a few tweaks to make it a very good app.

  • Good App

    by Oompalumpa1987

    I find this App very helpful

  • Afn mobile app

    by CPBM

    Awesome app...very user friendly!

  • Good app

    by Orso55cd

    Keeps me updated on the schedule in a very easy to use way.

  • Helpful!

    by RetUSNR

    I don't use it for much beyond AFN schedules, but since we are not on CET the auto conversion for my location is helpful.

  • Military standard...okay for gov work

    by Fun but needs more

    Scrolling in 2hr increments is slow. Doesn't list all the channels.

  • AFN App

    by h_parish12

    Great app, keeps me in the loop when my favourite shows come on, especially during football season!!!!

  • Review

    by Bored child20

    Needs a little tweaking but is more accurate than using the computer version. The biggest draw back to me is that it doesn't allow you to scroll ahead in time easier not thirty minutes at a time maybe they could just allow you to scroll ahead like u do on a computer page or something.

  • Pretty good app

    by Socal bolt

    Not a bad app. Mainly use for tv schedule. Would give it 5 stars if they added a tv show search function like the website version has.

  • AFN

    by Ready 7

    It works great. Keep it up AFN.

  • AFN App

    by jock74

    I like the app but when a new story is revealed could not find where the new story is. Aside from that awesome app!

  • Great Job AFN

    by Eva Steen

    Even though I am not in the military, but the AFN App is for me the connection home. I love the information that I get from back home. Great Job!!! Thanks from your grateful listener Eva M. Steen, Kastellaun-Rhein-Hunsrueck

  • GREAT RESOURCE

    by Fozzy98

    This is a fantastic app with lots of great information. It gives you quick access to exchange rates and fuel prices, even the AFN TV schedule. Plus you can stream AFN radio which is nice since the signal in Benelux is somewhat weak and it does not reach my house.

  • Great App

    by Ludes369

    Works great!!!!

  • Great!

    by Rattler1925

    Really allows you to know what is going on at a glance.

  • AFN App

    by Wild56er

    Very convenient and easy to use. Thank you.

  • Easy to use

    by greenwr

    I use it for the exchange rate

  • Radio Feature....

    by 31B Warrior

    I cannot get the radio feed to play, otherwise the app is a solid 4+ stars. I have an iPhone 5 and have attempted on both wifi and LTE to stream, I push play and it shows activity for a second and then it stops. Any help would be great, thanks.

  • Love Radio 360, But…

    by PhunkyPheet

    Please update the app to run in the background more smoothly. If I "Sleep" my phone while the radio is streaming, then try to pause playback in the "Wake" screen, nothing happens when I press the play/pause button. So then I re-open the app to pause playback, and I have to wait while the entire app launches again, I have to scroll to the radio, then pause playback. Way too clunky. Please make this awesome feature more user-friendly!

  • Worthless

    by JoeMinorWorld

    Primary reason to get is LIVE RADIO and that doesn't work!

  • AFN Guide

    by Kingofbattle13

    Could be so much more....needs sliding time scale, week view (instead of just today's schedule), and needs to make each tv show description expandable such that you can read the full synopsis.

  • Doesnt work

    by Deadsgirlsparty

    Nothing shows up when i click in the different options on the main page :/

  • Handy app!

    by CatDeeAnn

    This is a handy app to have. However, if my iPhone isn't connected to WiFi, I can't get it to work. Fix that bug and I'll be really happy with this app!

  • AFN

    by Trevorten

    I think this is one of the best apps to have .

  • Good to have

    by Jerry's kids 2

    It's good to have if you are not not in an area where afn is out of range. It still has some glitches but still good.

  • AFN Europe

    by Mrs.jsss

    This app is perfect for military families moving to the area!

  • Works perfectly.

    by DavidDemirTosun

    Always the best hit music.

  • AFN

    by Xanidu67

    Everything I need in 1 app.

  • G-2-G

    by Fickman1966

    Great music variety Wish there was more news and NPR from the AFN AM channel 1100 or the option to have both streaming for those of us who like to stay current with current events and commentaries.

  • Excellent

    by Fjgonzo

    Very useful and easy!

  • Should have got earlier

    by Rbrown1469

    I downloaded this app 2 1/2 years into my tour. That was 2 1/2 years to late. AFN Europe app is the best thing for Soldiers stationed in Europe. Download this app ASAP

  • SWEET AFN APP!!!

    by malemusclecat

    Thanks for a Smoooooth and easy way to keep up to date on a lot of things which makes life easier for us overseas. Especially like gas prices and exchange rates. This App. Puts info in your hands that Kings of Yore only dreamed about! Thanks AFN!

  • Ok App.

    by carlaway

    The only parts I use are the weather alerts and once in a while the traffic. Sometimes (too often) there will be a problem with the app loading.

  • Stars & Stripes

    by SMITHTB

    Great app; wish I could make the section I use most often load on launch.

  • Great Apps

    by nate9103

    What I needed to stay updated in news events as well as the TV schedule. Thank you all for giving us this apps.

  • AFN Pacific?

    by USMC Tanker

    Great app, but what about one for AFN Pacific?

  • I use this everyday!

    by So 9

    I use this app mostly for the tv schedule. It is mostly accurate when the US and Europe have both done the time change. However when the US has changed and Europe hasn't, as it is now, the times are all screwed up. When Europe changes on the 31st it will be all good.

  • Nice but could do with some tweaking

    by annmorag

    Useful app but some areas such as the TV app could do with some major updates to make it really useful

  • Average app

    by Wasteofbytes

    The weather app is usually incorrect. The tv app is always focused on another time zone and I have to reset it every time I use it. The rest of the links are of no interest to me or my family. Info is out of date, etc. useless.

  • Nice app

    by Pfcdavis

    I can easily view the tv schedule and it seems to have a lot of other useful features as well.

  • Really handy app

    by JK cook

    I like having this app on my phone. It makes it easy to check what's coming up next on the TV and also check the weather. I just wish that it would say what channel number the programs were on and what the programs were about.

  • Not bad

    by Alextp3

    Does what it says for the most part

  • It helps

    by BoredMA

    It has help us stay informed about what's going on back home and here in Europe. I personally like the exchange rate part of the app.
