Internet and mobile radio app and service provider RadioTime has announced the availability of TuneIn Radio mobile radio apps for the Android and BlackBerry platforms.
The Android and BlackBerry apps are free (though ad supported). The previously released TuneIn Radio app for the iPhone is $1.99.
Besides accessing an estimated 50,000 radio stations and podcasts, the apps use the smartphones’ GPS sensors or Wi-Fi to determine location to provide immediate access to local stations.
RadioTime CEO Bill Moore said: “The TuneIn Radio apps bring all of the music, news and sports programs and personalities that make radio unique to Android and BlackBerry device owners… We’re providing Android and BlackBerry users with a wide selection of stations, while making it easy for them to browse and tune in favorite programs and discover the great content that streaming music services cannot offer.”
