New Corus Radio iOS App Launches, Old App Quietly Killed Off


Corus Radio launched their iPhone app back in early 2009 and at the end of April it was quietly shut down, only to be replaced by a brand new, redesigned app known as Corus Radio Stations.

The old app was quietly abandoned and shut down as a banner ad encouraged listeners to upgrade to the new app. The problem is the updated app no longer supports older hardware such as the iPhone 3G so some older listeners were disappointed the app no longer worked for them.

Aside from that, the new app does let listeners tune in to every single Corus radio station across the country:

The Corus Radio cities include: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, London, Kitchener, Guelph, Hamilton, Toronto, Barrie, Peterborough, Kingston and Cornwall. Modern Rock, Classic Rock, News/Talk, and Hit Music radio are some of the radio formats you’ll find within the Corus Radio family. Some of the stations include: CFOX, Rock 101, CKNW, Country 105, 630 CHED, CISN, Fresh FM, Power 97, CJOB, FM 96, The Beat, 900 CHML, the edge, Q107, and the Wolf.

You can browse stations by location or format, view your recent history and also there is screen support for the iPhone 5. The free app is powered by a small banner ad placed at the bottom of the screen. Let us know how you’re liking this new version of the app.

  • I think the TuneIn app lets you do the same thing, but on a much larger scale.

  • After the last heinous attempt at an app, I thought Corus would’ve learnt something about future releases; apparently I was very, very wrong.

    This new app STILL lacks the feature to add favourites, so when I’m traveling and want to switch between CJOB, 630ched, etc. It’s an annoying process of dealing with the horrible user interface on the app.

    It still frequently disconnects and stalls/skips while playing, and lacks any improvement over the old app whatsoever. I don’t know who they’re paying to make their mobile apps, but the creators and developers should be tarred and feathered (or at least receive some tongue-in-cheek ‘Raspberry Award’ ????) for making the worst radio app ever to plague the App Store.

    I was trying to listen the CFMI on Friday night and kept getting a error on my old 3G Iphone., I just use it for music when I’m out of town or staying at the girlfriends place. But now since the app doesn’t support the phone, I’ll have to use the Roger’s app to stream their music stations. Not going to replace the phone for the few times I use it. I have two JBL speaker docks that use the 30 pin Apple connector. So I won’t get rid of those any time soon, they work good still.
