A fantastic iPhone app that people are using to listen to radio stations is called Tuner. It’s available for purchase in the App Store. But what about us Canadians that want to listen to some local streaming radio for free? Well, I got a great tip from my friend Darryn on how to stream free Astral Media radio stations on your iPhone.
Turns out Astral Media has an iPhone friendly website that will let you listen to live radio. You can also check out recently played songs, visit the station’s website, plus a help section is there too!
I tested this out by listening to Crave 95.3 and it sounds great. There is a play button that will launch the Quicktime player and you’re off to some fun times listening to the radio! It sounded great but keep in mind that this will eat up your data if you use it too much. But if you’re using WiFi, the only thing stopping you from listening too long is the iPhone 3G’s dismal battery life! Here are some screenshots:
