Bring your local radio stations anywhere with TuneIn Radio

I have a particularly strong love for radio. I don’t know exactly what it is, but, to me, radio has always possessed a little bit of magic. The idea that hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of people, all grooving to the same tune as you, is something that brings a little grin to my face and a pop to my step. TuneIn Radio by Synsion Radio Tech. ($0.99) is an excellent radio app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running iOS 3.0 or later. If you listen to radio, download this app.

TuneIn makes it so simple to listen to your favorite radio stations anywhere. Over data or Wi-Fi, you can hook into your favorite stations, and listen to your favorite shows — you can even go as far as recording your station and listening to it on demand. The interface is smooth, and the gestures fluid. The app is very enjoyable to use. You can browse stations by region, or search them out. Add them to your favorites list, and you’re all set to go!

I love the concept of listening to my local radio stations anywhere. I moved to New York a few years ago, and left behind some really great radio stations. I found this app, and immediately got plugged into a few of my stations from Michigan. The only downside is that the app doesn’t have every station. I couldn’t find my favorite station! (I suspect TuneIn Radio is not in partnership with Clear Channel Radio. I don’t know this for certain, but all of the stations that were missing from my list were Clear Channel stations.)

Other than that small hitch, this app is almost flawless. If it were able to grab the rights to the missing stations, that would be great. If not, this app is still a winner. At $0.99, this is a steal.
