Weather Underground Launches WunderRadio for the iPhoneWeather Underground Has Teamed Up With RadioTime to Develop the iPhone's Most Comprehensive Source of Streaming Internet Radio Stations -- Available in the iPhone App Store Now for $5.99 (October 07, 2008)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/08/08 -- Weather Underground is pleased to announce the availability of WunderRadio, an iPhone application that gives users access to thousands of streaming internet radio stations powered by RadioTime's extensive guide.
WunderRadio utilizes the iPhone's GPS capability to locate nearby radio stations including NOAA weather radio streams. RadioTime guide provides a quick and easy way to find radio content from thousands of stations across the world. Listeners can browse by genre or location to see what is available for their tastes, locations and connections. Users can build a list of their favorite stations providing instant access to a personalized directory. WunderRadio also allows users to access radio scanners to pick up local police, fire and EMS agencies across the US.
"The initial impetus behind this application was to provide iPhone users with instant access to local weather radio streams," said Alan Steremberg, President of Weather Underground. "During development, we decided to extend the scope of radio stations offered by working with RadioTime. The result is an easy to use portal to over 60,000 of the best talk, music and sports radio stations around the globe."
WunderRadio provides links to the web site of the radio station that you are listening to as well as information on any songs that are playing. When listening to the weather radio stations users can link to Weather Underground's free iPhone weather. The application features internet radio stations that are streamed by Windows Media and MP3 formats -- providing users with a vast number of stations.
"WunderRadio has created an innovative approach for iPhone users to explore the unique music, talk formats and personalities only radio can offer, and which online streaming music services just can't provide," said Bill Moore, CEO, RadioTime. "The integration of RadioTime guide with Weather Underground's technology makes it easy to browse the enormous selection of radio the world has to offer."
As part of the ongoing relationship between Weather Underground and RadioTime, both companies are also pleased to announce that Weather Underground powered weather radio stations are now to be included in RadioTime's directory of channels.
