Must have iPad applications : radio : TuneIn Radio

Posted on October 10, 2011

TuneIn Radio (by Synsion Radio Technologies)  is great internet radio streaming application, has many stations, including nine local stations, with 5fm ECR and Radio 2000 amongst them.

The app does what it needs to, and well. It has the schedules so you can see what’s on and what programming is coming up next. When music is playing it displays the details of the song and artist when available.

A key feature is the time shift recording, the applications keeps recording as you are listening so you can pause and rewind if you miss something and fast forward to get back live. This feature works well. If you pay for the pro version you get to save recordings instead of just doing time shift.

I have mostly used the application to listen to sport. Once your channel is selected and you are listening can switch to another application and keep listening. The multi tasking is a real boon, unlike the DStv drifta application which doesn’t multi task and dies as soon as you switch away. A real pain if you are wanting to check something on the net while listening to the game.

The professional version is just $0.99 and allows you to save the recordings. A worthwhile addition.

Download it here (iTunes SA) or  here (iTunes USA).
