Everything you'll ever need to know about listening to radio on the iPhone - Part I

image


The iPhone is an ideal platform for listening to online radio stations. In this article, I explain everything you’ll ever need to know about all this. You’ll learn how radio stations can be listened to on even non-jailbroken iPhones, without any hacks to play stations in the background; I also present a very thorough comparison of currently available third-party radio software.

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

1. Built-in capabilities: QuickTime

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.

Smart Kid - English basics lite (free) by Viralint is great!  Upon opening it up you can choose to get learn a bit about it, go into settings, where you can set up some parameters, or start right in with sentence completion, choosing from a difficulty level of1 to 6.



App-A-Day Project: Spot The Bug

Now from the name you're probably thinking this is some boring programmer's game or an insect variation of "Where's Waldo?".  In actuality it's an interesting take on the match 3 genre.  Unfortunately, like most of the games in this series to date, it suffers from inadequate controls and hasty implementation.  Here we go again...



Infant app's for child development

I’ve recently had the opportunity to review Mantaray Creative Labs iBaby Buddy ($1.99) and like what I see with one caveat.  From the get go it should be obvious that you take risks handing over a several hundred dollar iPhone to an infant, I could easily imagine the lady at the Apple Genius bar asking if my iPhone got wet and my saying, “Does my baby teething on it count?”  But with that caveat, and a parents desire to give their children the best learning opportunities they can, I think this is a use of the iPhone worth following.



Welcome to iPhone OS3.0

Apple introduces the 3rd version of its revolutionary mobile OS at WWDC.
Upgrades will be free to iPhone users and $9.95 for iPod touch owners.

On June 8 Apple revealed the third version of the iPhone OS, an immense update to the iPhone interface. It’s easier to list what appears not to have changed—Weather and Calculator—than what has changed. Apple stated that there were over 100 new user features and 1,000 new developer APIs (see page 80) in the new OS, which was released June 17.

WOW! Apple's New iPhone 3G S

The “fastest, most powerful iPhone yet” runs the iPhone OS 3.0 and features video recording, voice control, up to 32 GB of storage, and a lot more.

Apple introduced its new iPhone on June 8th, and is promoting the 3G S as the “fastest, most powerful iPhone yet.” While it’s true that most new devices are faster and more powerful than their predecessors, the new iPhone does have a faster processor that renders Web pages quicker and launches apps up to twice as fast. In addition, the new device is packed with other hardware and software enhancements that make it a far more powerful and “smart” phone.

Power under the hood

The 3G S looks very much like the 3G—the changes are under the hood. The new iPhone includes a number of new hardware features, including:

iPhone 3G S and OS 3.0

The big news for this summer is the release of Apple’s updated mobile OS and its new iPhone.

In this issue, we take a first look at the new iPhone 3G S. Resting in your hand, it looks pretty much like the 3G, but in this case, looks are deceiving. The 3G S sports a faster processor, better battery life, a 3 megapixel camera, enhanced 3D graphics, and a variety of other improvements. Best of all, Apple claims it’s twice as fast as the 3G. By the time you read this, it should be available from Apple, AT&T, and other vendors. Check it out.

App-A-Day Project: Trounce

Ready for some demon squishing fun? I was too, but what could have been a simple yet intriguing premise somehow managed to get mired in the details. Trounce is a good foundation for a nice pick-up-and-play game, but until it can move past its App-A-Day roots it really feels like little more than a prototype.
