RadioTime, the Internet radio portal, has acquired TuneIn, developer of the TuneIn iPhone/iTouch Internet radio app.
Mr. TuneIn, Ben Alexander, came with the package and will be joining RadioTime to oversee development of future RadioTime iPhone and iPad apps.
Bill Moore, CEO of RadioTime, stated: "An ever-growing number of our RadioTime.com users are now accessing Internet radio on their smart phones, using their headphones, connecting to a docking station and plugging into their car stereos … Adding the TuneIn application to the lineup of our own and partners' mobile apps, along with the expertise Ben brings to our team, brings our customers and partners a significant competitive advantage."
Alexander said the goal is "bringing Internet radio to a wide variety of mobile, automotive and connected in-home media players, televisions and sound systems."
The RadioTime TuneIn app can be found at the iTunes store for $1.99.
