Awesomeness in an app ^_^ Love not having to miss out on Hack or Dr Karl because I work weird shifts and often miss out on the live to air show. Yay for streaming!

Flora Wong

Great app Great app for checking what's been played and listening on the go. Being in Brisbane, I also love being able to listen at daylight saving time. Suggestions: 1) A "pause" button as well as "stop" on the notifications bar/lock screen to keep the app running while temporarily pausing play. 2) Displaying the current track on the notifications bar like many other music player apps do for quick reference.

Jessica Vanspeybroeck

Great app except for the time difference It's a great app and I love that I can not only listen on my phone but mark my favourite songs. The downside is I'm in WA and the app is eastern states time so I can't just continue on from where I left off.

Brad King

Good app but wrong info Works well and love to be able to stream but it seems like the recent tracks is always wrong. Tried changing frequencies to all major cities and it just doesn't seem to match up.

Gurpreet Singh Banwait

Awesome! Now I can favourite songs I discover on triple j. I love this app. So stylish. Simple has all essential music info you need on triple j.

Josh Wilson

Wix! If you listen to the j's, you defs got to get your hands on this app. It tells me whats playing, and it gets me the latest music news. Plus it streams and allows you to get social. Its a must have for the triplej listener...

Paul Macdonnell

Great experience This does a pretty good job of streaming triple j to your device. There are a couple of small things, currently playing song as the title for icon, etc. Otherwise, it's a great app.


JJJ in singapore I love the app i now live and work in singapore and enjoy listening to the morning show on my way to work and dont ever miss out on the racket or short fast loud now with time difference thanks for this great app

Mark Outram

Doesnt close properly. Great app but doesnt close properly, at least it doesn't when you're streaming to a speaker. Even after forcing the app to close it carrys on playing. You have to open another audio related app to get it to switch off. Until it gets a proper 'close app' button it remains 4 star for me.

James Hutton

Fantastic Can tune in when I need to, get recent track lists for Perth delayed broadcast, and tag favourite tracks. Perfect!!

Doug Woodrow

Perfection This app does everything a radio app should. Great streaming, easy to follow song titles and artists, the ability to easily log songs you like to a reviewable list. Absolute perfection from an absolutely perfect station

Thomas Baker

Wicked App for triple j! So good being able to use triple j app to look for that song/artist playing and schedules etc. Def a must have for triple j and live music fans :)

Isaac Mann

Doesn't quite work 1. Turning off auto play doesn't persist - not cool. Every time I start it, it starts streaming and I don't want it to. 2. I want a timestamp, not a "5 minutes ago" on the recent track playlist, because there's no guarantee or indication the app has synced 3. It's obviously an iPhone port, both because of the buttons at the top of the screen, and it doesn't use standard android back key operation. 4. It might look good, but it's not really clear which parts of the UI are interactable, and what they do

Guy Gangemi

Nailed it Quality design. Does what it says and doesn't randomly fire up to still your meta-data.

Sebastian Blakemore

Love the ap, can you please ad an actual map with all the towers/frequencies as you have on the iphone? Using samsung s5. Thanks

Craig Weate

No WiFi only restrictions please. I live overseas, so this little app allows me to listen to Triple J, either via my car's stereo while driving, or with some earphones while on the train. I almost feel like I'm living back in Oz. If I could only listen to shows on demand over data instead of only via WiFi. Then it would be perfect.

Darren Toh

Great reliable app. Really recommend it. Smooth reliable app that rarely drops out unless Internet coverage is crap.

Cameron Love

Great App but fix time zone Live in Qld and the recent tracks is always an hour in the future for the summer, it is probably a problem for the central and western states as well.

Ajm Mathew Henry

Love it I'm a interstate driver. It helps me find you guys no matter where I am in Australia

stacie dexter

JJJ is the best This app and radio station are so on point, if you haven't had your JJJ fix before, do it now.

Laurence de Maere

Good, but uninstalled itself? No idea what happened, reinstalling now. I didn't remove it. Very odd.

Beard Bros

beard you very much Great app! I live in a rural area where we're very limited for radio frequencies. Even triple j can be difficult to pick up. This app solves that problem. Love it. Gotta have my j's

James Chugg

Good app but unfortunately no tablet landscape support. Please add a setting or make the app auto rotate. 5 * when fixed

Andri Bayuadjie

Coolest new music Coolest app for discover new music. But I don't like the radio news.

Peter Haxton

Too many errors Loved the app in the past but now can't access 2014, house party or mix-up podcasts. Some others work but all seems a bit random. Please fix.

Morgan Mcpherson

its great but... Works really well but always seems to feeeze and stop playing. Had the same app on iphone and had the same problem. Otherwise awesome, cheers guys. keep up the good work

tim lab

Awesome! Now i can stream my favourite aussie station wherever whenever! And there is a wealth of information and knowledge regarding the best new and old tunes! Golden. Thanks

Stuart Parker

Im having issues getting this app of my tablet as it is stopping everything else from updating and downloading.... how do I remove this app if it doesnt give me an option... it hasnt even downloaded onto tablet its just downloads in the background over and over causing other apps in play store to not load or update..... Remove this please!!!!

Connor Rutledge

Triple J Rules Great app, easy to use, had since it came out and use often. Stay away from generic music.

Jose Costa Jorge

JJJ since 1988 The best! Now can listen to it while hamering nails :) and other things. @rtp.antena3

Lyra Anne

Radical app Radical app dudes but please get into making a widget for home screen I would enhance the experience by 1000% ???

Ryan Hill

Awesome Now i get to listen to the J's in my helmet while riding to & from work. :)

Jez Bond

Great app, i use it everyday Use it everyday and it never fails me, go triple j

Derek Wee

Essential for Aussies overseas. Stream live, catch up on old shows. It's too good. Will do the radio out of a job.

Paul Ruf

Good app, love it I enjoy listening to the hack at 5:30 while exercising. It's a great app

Stuart Wilson

Great app, low data overheads. Helps me never miss out on the J's when I'm travelling around the country

Jason O'Neil

Not bad at all. Let's me listen, and see what a song is - easy! Wish it had the option to only play over wifi to avoid using mobile data

Tash Donovan

Nothing better Hiw could you get any better then the jays where ever you go

Anne-Marie Harris

J's app rocks Reliable every time and provides the desired outcome.

Geoffrey Cunnold

Triple j app what.a dream Man being overseas I thought I'd be screwed without my triple j but thank goodness for the app I've still got my J ' s on the move

eddy Nobells

The podcasts are never up to date so I usually have to go to the website anyway, so this app is kind of pointless to me, sorry. I love triple j, but it's kind of annoying that only a handful of the podcasts are available i.e hack and Dr Karl. Am I doing something wrong?

Rebecca Kelley

Fussy with WiFi It's good when it works, but that's rare. It seems to need a really good WiFi connection (better than Spotify), and unfortunately neither my work or home connections seem to be good enough. Looks like I'll be sticking to Spotify for now.

Jim Lyon

Rave in a pocket Great for streaming triple j, and then saving tracks that you like the sound of. But sometimes the podcasts can be frustrating to use.

Leonie Seedsman

Eggsellent! So happy to be able to catch new fave songs instantly. One flaw; it can't cope with daylight savings time (goes out of sync in summer for Qld & others). Otherwise great@

Gold Member

Gold I'm an expat living in Switzerland and this app is awesome. Streams like a dream and I can keep up with my favourites like Hack and Dr Karl as well as all the music. What's missing is a delay option for international listeners but otherwise fantastic

Shaun Rameshwar

Wrong time zone App streams eastern states broadcast despite changing my settings to Perth. Missed out on The Internet covering one of my favourite songs...shattered

J Reilly

Works great. The only thing I'd like is to be able to time sync but as that would require huge amounts of storage a can deal with simply having all off the shows and great music.

Jimi Dean

The perfect companion. Choose to listen live and select any frequency you like, or take your pick of any of the great segments available. Listening to mornings at 9pm? Sure thing. Short fast loud any day you like? Go for it.

Clint Bird

Issue with "now playing" App works quite well most of the time but often the now playing feature is up to 1 hour slow. Have to Shazam songs a lot.

bradley c.

I've got crappy FM reception & no digital signal yet, so yeah this works best for me, haven't fully explored it yet . oh yeah don't forget double J !! They play lots of older stuff like Massive attack, eg tracks that used to be popular on jjj.

Matthew Barton

Best app ever. Love listening to triple j. Only thing that bugs me is the daylight saving as im in Queensland

Kosta Farmakidis

Only thing that annoys me is when the app doesn't switch back to playing music after something else uses sound like a phone call or video. Gets frustrating.

Jim my

Good app Haven't experienced a single problem, download links for songs would be great.


JJJ Just Spot On This app keeps me in the new music loop. Use it every day & create awesome playlists from my fav list

WatsDrew Doin

Five stars ✨ but sometimes the info isn't up to date. But great work guys thanks Love it

Daniel Castillo

Nice for triple j only Would be fantastic if I could stream the other stations affiliated with triple j like unearth or double j from the one app but apart from that fantastic app for all things triple j music and news.

Courtney Hart

Aural Dessert Can't fault it. Simple layout ensures I can consume the deliciousness that is Triple J at any time and everywhere.

Isaac Mann

Not usable 1. Turning off auto play doesn't persist - not cool. Every time I start it, it starts streaming and I don't want it to. 2. I want a timestamp, not a "5 minutes ago" on the recent track playlist, because there's no guarantee or indication the app has synced, and 3. It doesn't sync the latest songs played anyway. 4. It might look good, but it's not really clear which parts of the UI are interactable, and what they do. You need some UX work done.

Paul Godwin

Great app but sometimes buffers for a while where I could pick up another station in i<3 radio..

Glenn Dickson

We love music Its triple J, what other reason do you need. Just about everything on their website is on this app

Jake Fookes

New music It's great to know what you're listening to, like the track to download it later ?

Ju Lee

Great app that's got everything you need to stream live. That's all I really use it for currently..

Harrison Brady

Functional, not pretty. The Triple J app does everything you need it to. But for an Android App, this is very iOS themed. There is no material design to be seen, and it is not landscape compatible with Android Tablets such as the Pixel C. The Triple J app is in need of a visual overhaul.

Oscar Dicksnow

Found I can't seem to get the volume very loud. Tried plugging it in different devices to. :@

Gerard Lynch

Big Fan of triple J and the app No idea how I put up listening to ads on commercial stations growing up. Wish I had discovered triple J sooner.

Dw Scott

Bullshit app Connecting........buffering............failed to start stream. Rinse repeat. Every time. Im using my house wifi with a strong signal and this keeps happening.

Oliver Tatlow-Lord

Only useful for Eastern States! Actually the app is great... But if you're wanting to tune in from Adelaide, Perth, etc, it's like listening to the future. Please, please add some kind of delayed stream so it can sync up with what is actually being broadcast in our region.

Michael Lo

Good but unstable Lately the app tends to stop streaming after a minute or two, even when using a 4G data network and other apps connecting fine. Sometimes it even closes itself on its own. Otherwise good.

Matthew Fletcher

Missing frequency map Good app with good functionality but missing the frequency map that is available in the apple version. It lists the stations if you know what is near you but if you don't you miss out. The map like in the apple version would make it 5 star

Harlem Kellar

Drops out. Application stops playing whenever it wants. Cant listen to live radio let alone recorded shows playback.

Bonny Urban

International Aussi I've been traveling for 3 years and love that I can take my favorite Australian radio station with me where ever I am in the world.

Matt Brown

Good, but need help Hi developers, everything is working perfectly except the volume, it works, but the App's max volume isn't as loud as my MP3 music apps (poweramp). Where I notice this is on a Sena motorcycle Helmet Bluetooth thing, mp3's I can hear clearly, this app I can't hear conversations on the radio. Is there a way to fix this or increase the gain?? Thanks!! --matt

Adam Tolo

Awesome not perfect Great app just wish it was in sync with the triple j website exactly. When I have it playing in one room on my phone and then walk to the living room where it's playing off the jjj website on my computer and there is a 1 min delay its kinda annoying

Harrison Brady

Functional, not pretty. The Triple J app does everything you need it to. Functional, and works well. But for an Android App, this is very iOS themed. There is no material design to be seen, and it is not landscape compatible with Android Tablets such as the Pixel C. The Triple J app could do with a visual overall in line with Google material design guidelines.

Luc Greiner

GPS always on The app is using GPS to determine location CONSTANTLY even tough it could us cellular network. Not viable for battery life nor useful, waiting for a fix!

Jacquie McGraw

One of my most used apps Great app. Listen to it on the bus into & out of work each day. Mark fave songs as I hear them to look up later. Shame there isn't a delay for Qlders when it's daylight savings.

Christine Baggs

Love streaming love and old programs I listen to it at work because we don't have a radio which is great but I have a problem getting old Hack programs. For some reason there is always an error since before Christmas, it worked fine before that.

Kimberley Krug

App is great, I rarely have any issues :) having the J's 24/7 is a must! Weirdly when its running with Facebook though, it will cause interruptions when liking or commenting on things... Is this a bug? Its kind of annoying...

Brock Sellars

Runs Smooth Had a couple of problems playing off a Wi-Fi connection previously but it's all fixed now and haven't had a problem.

Cody Foreman

Awesome app. Been listening for over 2 years now. One thing that could be better is creating an account so when I favorite songs on one device it syncs across all devices. Currently have the chrome extension on my chromebook and app installed on 3 phones. So when trying to pick my list for hottest 100 had to look across multiple devices.

Brenton Andrew

Hack podcast Love the app to keep up to date with Hack. But for the last couple of weeks it's just not loading on my phone. I've tried to reinstall but it's still not loading. Please fix this if it's an issue on your side. Im using an lgv10

Sam Washington

Yeew! Brilliant app here, works wonders trying to find where that radio station has hidden while road tripping, or when overseas and needing that fix of Hottest 100! Still some references to old programs and shows in the text, but seriously, who reads that and gets frustrated by remembering The Doctor?! :)

Michael Vaughan

God The streaming is robust, even in crap reception. The sound quality is good. The difference between four and five stars I'd just because it doesn't really fit in with the rest of the Android UI.

Laura Beegan

Love it Totally love not missing out on hack when have to work. Sometimes it is a bit buggy and there is no content in it but usually it is great! Dates are for the day before but easy to figure out! Totally recommend it!

Ashley Bartee

Tracking me? I'm not sure why a radio app needs to track my location, which it actively does everytime I use it. Sorry, but think this is overstepping the "normal" permissions. I am removing the app until this changes, which is really unfortunate because I love the music and DJ's at Triple J!

Lee Walker

Used to be great Used to be the perfect app, now when running on the newest android software, leaving the app (minimising it) or turning screen off makes the sound stop. Every time. App is essentially useless until this is fixed.

pete naughton

Triple j Good app all in all. Not sure if it's my connection but when I Wi-Fi. It drops out even now and then. Aside from that trip trip triple j


What's not to love? Triple J that doesn't get cut off while going through tunnels - and gives you a live play list. . ??

Bec Cushway

Cuts out when switching between mobile networks and wifi. Good aspects are the ability to favourite tracks, the real-time track descriptions and the interactive nature of the app.

Patrick Chapman

I used to love listening to hack podcasts to catch up because i always miss them at 5:30 but on day they just stopped working dr carl still works and mat and Alex but no more tom tilly :( plz ive tried everything and reinstalled a million times is there a solution.
