Building on its successful iHome+Sleep app introduced earlier this year, accessory manufacturer iHome has released its second iOS application. iHome+Radio is a new Internet radio application that provides users with access to over 20,000 local and international radio stations streamed over Wi-Fi or 3G. iHome+Radio uses RadioTime.com as its source for Internet radio channels and can sync any presets that existing Radiotime.com users have stored online for a seamless transition onto the iPhone and iPod touch. iHome+Radio also integrates with the company’s iHome+Sleep app to allow users to wake up or fall asleep to their favorite Internet radio stations and includes controls and settings for iHome’s app-enhanced products such as the iA5 and upcoming iA100 alarm clocks. iHome+Radio is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch devices using iOS 4.0 or later and supports Radiotime listed stations streamed in MP3 and AAC formats only. iHome+Radio is available from the App Store for an introductory price of $2.

Have you guys looked at the reviews for this piece of crap app?  I was one who bought it and quickly realized it sucks. There are many other free apps out there that stream all stations.  Most of the stations in my area are talk radio and gospel.  Not what I plan to wake up to. I have the iA5 clock and the iHome+Sleep app which I like very much.  I actually contacted iHome support asking for radio streams to be added.  They were very receptive, but then this app shows up as a $2.00 add on when others are available free.  But, ok, whatever… I bought it.  I have yet to actually use it because of it’s flaws.  They say it’s because of the encoding used on many of the “Good” stations.  I say, fix the problem.
