Wunder Radio

WunderRadioWunder Radio is one of the best streaming radio apps available. It’s great to have when you’re traveling or at work and want to listen to a live match. Wunder Radio boasts over 30,000 radio stations worldwide. It allows you to search by location and genre, and then build a list of your favorite stations. When I typed in “soccer,” it turned up 6 results. But when I searched on “football” (what the rest of the world calls the sport), it listed over 30 international radio stations.

First and foremost, let’s take a closer look at the built-in, out-of-the-box radio support.

All versions of the iPhone (and, of course, the iPod Touch – from now on, I refer to all these as “iPhone”), under OS3, already have support for playing back some (not all!) possible radio stream types.
