7. Tunein Radio

iTunes link: Tunein Radio

Price: £0.59

The iPhone isn’t exactly short of internet radio apps. A quick search of the App Store for ‘radio’ will return pages and pages of them. As a result it’s difficult for an app of this type to stand out in such a crowded market, but Tunein Radio manages to do so with ease, simply because it’s such a well thought-out and feature rich offering.

It lets you find stations using the various categories or just by performing a free form search. You can also bookmark your favourite station and when a station is playing the top half of the interface shows you information about the current program you’re listening too. You can also record shows to your phone’s memory and even skip back in the stream in 5 or 30 second intervals.

Verdict: A great user interface and superb range of features make TuneIn Radio the best radio app available for the iPhone.

I'm sure you've covered Tunein Radio before. I downloaded it after it appeared in a previous article on this site.

Not sure if you've covered it and it's not new but I couldn't do without Instapaper on my iPod Touch. I no longer keep 30 tabs open while browsing, just quickly bookmark the page and it's ready waiting for me to read whenever I want.
