DLO has launched its new OpenFM application, a free iPhone-friendly online tool for searching for open FM frequencies. The application, which can be found at dlo.com/openfm, enables users to search for the clearest FM station in their area by city and state or zip code. To provide users with more up-to-date information, OpenFM searches an active FCC-provided database of licensed FM broadcasters. Andrew Green, vice president of marketing for DLO, said, “OpenFM is the perfect companion for any FM transmitter owner, because it gives you real-time access to the best available frequencies in any area, in any state.” In addition to the iPhone version of OpenFM, DLO is also offering a standard web-based version of the application, and plans on releasing an OpenFM widget for both PC and Mac in the coming weeks.

Doesn’t solve the bigger problem of FM transmitter’s requiring Airplane Mode to use on iPhone. Having to lose phone features to listen to interference-free music is just not an acceptable trade-off.

I’ll do w/out FM trans until that gets resolved.
