AOL Radio Provides a Radio-Playing App for the iPhone and iPod Touch

Geek Tip: Get Radio for the iPod Touch and iPhone!

So far, there have been so many apps released for the iPhone and iPod 2.0 update that I haven't had to wait for any apps yet (though I have questioned the usefulness of many). That is, except for a radio app. The absence of a radio option has frustrated some iPod users, as shown in this week's iPod vs. Zune post. That changes now — if you have an iPod Touch or iPhone.

AOL Radio is a new app for those who have upgraded to the 2.0 firmware update, and it provides over 200 radio stations, including your local radio stations (when you're in the area, and when you're not), as well as Internet radio stations. One drawback for first gen iPhone users is that there are not as many stations as there are for 3G, but radio on your little device is certainly still an auspicious start!

Yeah, unfortunately Jennisuga, that may be what you find with a first gen, since many of the Internet stations are high bandwidth and need the 3G connection. :(

IMHO, the WAY cooler radio option is Pandora for the iPhone.
