I just stumbled upon Internet Radio from Ensight Media. The name says it all as it’s all about listening to internet radio stations, approximate 50,000 of them from all over the world. What’s cool about it is the antique or nostalgic look the app has. Remember when the radio was just a dial? Yes that seems so long ago and now it’s easier than ever to listen to whatever you want from wherever you want. Internet Radio successfully blends the two generations in this simple app.
Upon installing the app, you will be able to easily find a station that suits your mood in no time. Maybe it’s that hometown station that you grew up with that you haven’t heard in awhile, or possibly you need to hear about your favorite sports team that resides on the other side of the country. Whether it’s rock, jazz, latin, dance, news, or sports, Internet Radio has it all. Just hit the CH+ button and you will quickly see your favorites along with options to search stations by country, SHOUTcast Radio station, or to add a station manually. You can also type in your search criteria once you select either by country or SHOUTcast radio. When you find a station you want to listen to, just tap it and it will load in no time. If you want to make it one of your favorites, just tap the star to the right of each station.
The other really nice feature Internet Radio offers is that you can easily see what’s popular. For example, when you hit search by country, you can quickly see the top 100 stations from all over the world, and after you tap a particular country, you can see the Top 30 for that country. It doesn’t stop there because you can even get the top 30 by region as well, so if you want to know the top 30 stations in California, USA, or Bologna, Italy, you can see them.
A nice touch is the Sleep Timer function, which is pretty self explanatory. Just tune to one of your favorite stations and set the timer so you don’t have to worry about falling asleep and forgetting to turn it off. They even offer a quick setting for preventing the screen from timing out and you can also set it to only stream when you are connected to WiFi.
