Livio Releases Car Internet Radio App for Android

Thanks to an enormous amount of pressure from the Android faithful, Livio Radio has dropped an Android app in the market today.  Available in both free and paid iterations, the app provides access to internet audio streams from up to 45,000 sources.  Details of the music service/application include song tagging, improved proprietary in-vehicle audio playback technology, and a sleep timer.  Oh, and it’s also optimized for playback with your Android tablets too!  Hit the break for a full rundown of features of the app which works best in your car.

  • Browse more than 45,000 AM/FM and Internet-only radio streams from around the world in partnership with the RadioTime® radio service.
  • Large preset buttons with horizontal or vertical positioning.
  • Browse streams by genre, location, or language, and search by call letters or keywords. Find local stations based on current GPS location.
  • Stream audio in the background while using other applications on your Android device.

  • Input a radio station’s unique code to begin streaming the broadcast.

      Hi Chaim,
      This app is different from Pandora in that it offers access to over 45,000 AM/FM and Internet-only radio stations from around the world. If you’re a Pandora user, Livio also makes products to get Pandora into the home. You can check us out here: http://www.livioradio.com
