Listen To Local Radio On Windows Phone 7

I have seen several mobile apps that stream radio stations, but most of those only include select radio stations from select markets. Today I found TuneIn Radio for Windows Phone 7, and what immediately caught my attention are the number of radio stations in my market of Detroit, Michigan. TuneIn Radio has the majority of local radio stations in the Detroit Market, including my favorite stations, and it also includes lists some EMS, Fire Department, and Police Department dispatch streams, but so far I have not been able to have any of those play.

TuneIn Radio supports more than 30,000 AM and FM radio stations that stream on the Internet, and you can browse to find stations by location, or search by station call letters. The stations are not limited to the United States, you can play radio stations from all over the world. You can store stations in a list of presets, and the app is location aware and will list the radio stations it finds near your location.

The Windows Phone 7 version of TuneIn Radio is free and I found playback to be very good using a WiFi connection. TuneIn Radio is also available for iOS, Blackberry, Android, and webOS. A free, ad-supported version of the app exists for Android, and a you can buy a version for $1.99 that does not have ads. The iOS version of the app costs $0.99, and the Blackberry version is free.
