TuneIn Radio for WP7
Lets face it, there’s a radio fan in all of us. No matter how many digital downloads we do every day, there are times when you just want to listen to some good old radio. Unfortunately not many regions have great radio service and stations are usually very limited. To alleviate that problem the developers for WP7 have come up with TuneIn Radio for WP7, a popular app already available on other major platforms like Android. Let’s see if this app is worth your time.
TuneIn radio allows you to listen to nearly countless amount of radio stations. Subdivided into different genres of music, it makes it really easy to find what exactly is it you want to listen to. It also supports local radio, so if your phone doesn’t happen to come with a built in radio, you’re covered there as well. The application was recently updated for Mango. This has brought several new features chief amongst them is the ability to play music when the app is not running. This means you can listen to quality music when typing an SMS or checking your Facebook. The app follows the Metro UI and is very smooth and pleasing on the eyes. There’s no lag or stutter to speak off. If you love a channel, simply pin it to the start screen for quick access. It also supports Podcasts. And the best part of all this is the app is completely free of cost. So you’ll be paying nothing to listen to great music from across the world. To me that’s a killer deal and that makes this app one of the best on the Marketplace right now.
