A radio aggregator with radio stations from accross the world. You can listen to native-spoken news, podcasts or music. No need to register. You only have to go to their website or install their apps and search for radio stations in the language that you're interested in. It’s available on both Andriod and iOS as well as on a computer.

Evaluation: The app breaks down the topics into categories so you can choose to listen to news, music, entertainment, etc. I’ve been using wifi to stream the radio and it’s been working really well. There’s a free version and a paying version, which offers a few perks such as the ability to record the radio streaming for later. It provides a great way to access authentic audio input.
Cost: Free without registration + Paid premium plans
