Music recording lets you listen to that song you like repeatedly

TuneIn Radio broadcasts local and worldwide stations from the RadioTime website. When you create an account and set up your favorite stations, these stations appear in the app. You can also save stations in-app using the bookmark button.
TuneIn Radio distinguishes itself from the other apps in my music collection by allowing users to record what is playing- typically, music, although sports and talk channels are offered as well. You can search for a song and if any of the hundreds of radio stations is playing it, you can go to that station and record the song. Replay buttons let you jump back a few seconds or even jump back to the point at which you started listening. Recordings are listed in a recordings list for playback at any time, and recordings can be deleted individually. What can you do with the recordings? Um... nothing, really- just listen to them! But I find them handy for recording songs I like in order to purchase them later.
This app has a variety of features; for example, you can use it as an alarm clock, or set a sleep timer for automatic shut-off within a certain amount of time.
My only complaint about this app is that the icons at the bottom of the screen are too small, making it easy to miss the record/stop button and accidentally hit "replay." This problem is caused partly by the case I use for the phone, but the case is not oversize; the developers should take cases into account if they update this app.
