Griffin Technology has launched its new SmartScan StationFinder, a web-based application that lets iTrip users find the best frequencies to use when using their FM transmitters. SmartScan is a new iteration of Griffin’s StationFinder application, and marks the beginning of a new platform from which future station-finding technologies may be developed. The application automatically formats itself to the user’s device — including the iPhone — and lets users find clear stations based on geographical area. The new SmartScan StationFinder can be found at

Calling this an “application” is a little extreme. It’s basically a list. Sure they emulated the flickable iPhone interface, but it’s still just a list.

Another question: Why does every iPhone “application” look exactly the same? Last time I checked, the iPhone can display more than 2 or 3 colors, so why aren’t there any flickable lists with red or green themes? Developers, be more daring and creative! Even the iPhone’s own applications have slightly different themes, so start experimenting and beautifying!

lol…I totally agree with Muero. I would go further by calling this an “application” as completely false. Just like Muero said, it’s a list. Application? Hardly.

No Canadian listings?  That sucks.
