At last – PLJ on your iPhone

A new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch has been released which works with local radio stations to push their stream on to the Apple devices.

Radiolicious – whilst only available in the USA at the moment – has amazing potential to kick start mobile internet radio listening with a clever amount of features.

One such feature, using the 'location-aware' facility of the iPhone is the ability to press the local button to list radio stations in your area. Already available on the application, now on iTunes, is WPLJ New York and other Citadel stations such as Q95.5 LA and Magic 104.7 Indiana.

Whilst the service is free to listeners, radio stations will pay for the facility via a monthly service fee, although the hardware, software and initial set-up cost is free.

In the UK, GCap/Global stations Classic FM, Capital FM, XFM, Choice FM, Gold, and Bauer's Kiss are the only stations offering a stream to the iPhone / iPod Touch. CBS/AOL also offer a similar service for their stations, and a number of 'internet only' radio applications are also available.

MySimBook is behind the venture, and plans are underway to promote adoption of Radiolicious by station affiliates of two national broadcast networks in the States. The application describes itself as offering thousands of radio stations, with a stream available on EDGE, 3G and WiFi.

Grab the application now from [link=]iTunes[/link] or visit [link=][/link] for more details.
