Useful Links: Take KIIS with you, everywhere – The best Radio Apps

6th September 2011 - General, Useful Links - , , , , , , ,

Today’s world has no boundaries anymore. Everyone is connected and there’s nothing you can’t find online. Radio has to accede that development, too. There’s almost no radio station, which doesn’t offer a live stream and additional music programs on it’s website. What does this mean for you? Take your favourite station with you everywhere, check the Imaging of every collegue around the globe, no matter if you are on the road, at home or on your way to work. Apps is the magic word – iphone, android or windows phone….

Raul inspired us to create a post on that topic, when he was sending us an email, in which he mentioned a radio app:

“This email is to make you know (if you don’t already know) about the existance of app Tune in Radio for smartphones. Its reeeeally interesting as you can hear a ton of radios around the world… it doesn’t matter if you’ve got Android, iPhone or any other… it really rocks!” 

In this episode of Useful Links, we concentrate on several Radio Apps, which enable you to listen to the best radio stations in the world. What are you waiting for?

TuneIn Radio App

One of the most popular radio apps.

Listen to thousands of radio stations, which can be browsed by keywords, genre or location. Search through all the available stations by the artists they play and save them as presets. Record, pause and rewind live streams.

Internet Radio Box
