Mobile app of the day: TuneIn Radio

If ever an app showed how small the world is, it's TuneIn Radio. This app brings together more than 100,000 radio stations and a massive 2 million on-demand streams for your listening pleasure.

Now, obviously, not everything to be found here is a gem. But if your musical tastes are eclectic, or if, like me, you get a bit fed up with standard radio broadcasting in the UK, then this free app is well worth a look. TuneIn Radio has been around for a while, but it has had a recent update which includes the ability to suggest stations based on your recent activity, and a personalised feed with live updates from the stations you follow. There's also an "echo" function which allows you to share what you are listening to with friends and followers.

Radio stations are categorised into groups like news, talk, sports, and music, and then sub-categorised to make browsing easy. There are also categories for trending content, and you can browse by location and language. Oh, and did I mention that podcasts are part of the rich range of audio content available here?
