RadioTime Streams 30,000 AM/FM and Internet-only Stations

Have you ever found yourself out of town and wanting to listen to your local radio station from back home? If your favorite station is owned by ClearChannel, iheartradio does the trick.  But what about those thousand of other stations from around the country?  How does one tune into them? RadioTime, silly.

RadioTime provides access to over 30,000 AM/FM and internet-only stations.  As some of might know, many channel broadcast their station online using Windows Media streaming format.  RadioTime is the first Android application to support this format and presents these stations to users regardless of location.  Nearby stations are found by using the phone’s GPS capability but users can also search by genre, network, radio personality, or topic.  Also available are live sports, news, weather, and scanners.

RadioTime is available for $2.99 in the Android Market and runs on any handset with Android 1.5 or higher.  If you’d like to learn more, head to the RadioTime site for Android.

    Boo! Hiss! Why is this app $3 when the RadioTime website and included stations are absolutely free? I use RT every day to listen to talk radio at work, but all the stations still have ads, so why is the app paid? Weak, RadioTime guys…

    Hi Erik,

    RadioTime needs some income or won't be around to make thousands of updates per day. The app is only $3 for our lifetime obligation and free software upgrades. Also, the windows media codec included is not free.

    Our main business is licensing the guide, mobile is an important category. None of the iPhone apps are free and most are selling well. If free for Android we'll have a harder time licensing.

    I already have a subscription to Slacker Radio (I like the customizable stations), but with this I'd be able to get the news & talk stations, even when out of town? I think I can finally cancel my XM radio! Thanks, I'll be trying this out.

    From a very satisfied RadioTime customer. My wife and I adopted a five year old little girl from Russia last summer. When I tried RadioTime I discovered we could listen to several children's music stations from Russia (among thousands of others.) I plugged in my Droid to my stereo radio's aux input. My little girl's face lit up when she heard a song she recognized. It brought tears to my wife's and my eyes when she said, "Daddy, that's a song I remember from Novosibirsk."

    $3? It was a priceless experience.

    By the way, Eric. If you don't like commercials try listening to some of the hundreds of stations streamed by RadioTime that don't have them. You might learn something.

    Bought the Android version of RT on day 1 and have been more than pleased with its performance. The new update added all the windows media streaming stations (awesome) and favorites sync with your main RT account. The app has been rock solid on 3G. Since the app pretty much does it all as is – my only wish would be larger station pics on the now playing screen and the ability to jump back 30 seconds or so. And the $2.99 price is well worth it.

    I use "Stream Furious" for my radio listening.

    I brought the app last night and have spent the morning listening to the BBC in the office (they block all that sort of thing where I work) so I'm well pleased. App seems solid (I've had it running uninterrupted for about 4 hours this morning) and the interface is pretty slick. Well worth $2.99.

    Is it $2.99 per month or one time fee?

    How does this differ from Tune In? They look exactly the same but ones free, the other is not.
