Pro Football Radio & Live Scores + Highlights ($0.99)
Pro Football Radio app aggregates radio streams of NFL games in one convenient place. It’s not perfect as some streams get restricted by NFL franchises, and the app’s UI isn’t exactly a thing of beauty, but the developer is very diligent about updates and you can usually find the stream you are looking for. It also has a schedule and videos in the podcast section.
