PODCASTS (New in version 5.5)
Listen to more than 16,000 (and growing) podcasts in the catalog, including radio shows, music, audio books, and virtually any topic worth talking about! Pocket Tunes Radio automatically downloads your subscribed podcasts and makes it super simple to listen to the ones you want to hear. Many podcasts can also be played in the background while you use other apps.

Record your favorite stations to playback later. This is great for news shows that you want to listen to at a later time or when you want to listen to radio when you don't have an Internet connection, like on the plane or subway. While playing back, you can skip forward and back to skip past songs and commercials you don't want to hear.

Pocket Tunes Radio lets you search for stations based on your current location using the GPS technology in your iPhone.

SELECTION (Now over 23,000 streams!)
The pre-populated station catalog can be browsed by genre and by country. You can select from over 23,000 streams (including popular stations like KCRW, Hot 97, etc., ...) or browse the web to add even more. The catalog is continually updated and will automatically grow as new stations are added. For convenience, you can even hide groups of stations that aren't of interest to you.

MP3 and AAC+ stations (and many podcasts) can be played in the background while you run other applications on your iPhone or iPod touch.

To maximize playback quality, stream speed is automatically selected for you based on whether a wifi or Edge/3G network is being used.

Add stations to your Favorites for quick access the next time you listen.

With the tap of a button, Pocket Tunes Radio will search for the current song in the iTunes Store so you can buy it or learn more.

Want to listen to Internet radio but still check your e-mail or surf the web? Easy, Pocket Tunes comes with a robust built in web browser so you can surf while Pocket Tunes Radio plays.

Know the station you are looking for? Enter a keyword on the search tab to search the entire catalog of stations, by city, state, country, call sign, or frequency. You can even search within a group of stations, and filter the results by station tags.

We invest in top-notch support engineers to get you quick and helpful responses to all of your questions. Want to see your favorite station in our catalog? Just send a request to support@normsoft.com to get it added, or access our support request form directly from the Stations tab within the Pocket Tunes Radio application by tapping Help.

Pocket Tunes® - Your Phone. Your Music.(™)

NOTE about Sirius/XM: Sirius/XM have recently changed their streaming format to use Flash technology. As you may know, Apple does not allow Flash on their devices. Due to this, Pocket Tunes no longer support playback of Sirius/XM stations. Sirius/XM provide a free iPhone player that you may find useful.
Our verdict: Meh!
  • Pocket Tunes Radio is a poorly rated app (2.5-star).
