I like to listen to Manx Radio whenever I can. Manx Radio is a radio station that broadcasts from the Isle of Man. Yes, I like it because I’m Manx but I know a lot of what is being talked about, I know a few of the presenters, It’s lighthearted, you never know what they’re going to play next and they think nothing of mentioning you on air.

I can listen to Manx Radio in the car, at my desk and pretty much wherever I go.

To me, it seems like magic but really it’s not. I run ooTunes on my iPhone.

At $3.99 it’s not one of the cheaper apps out there but it’s worth every penny and then some.

Any app that can stream such a relatively unknown radio station from the middle of the Irish sea along with more than 11,000 radio stations from around the World  others has to be worth it!

It’s quite remarkable really. Over 3G or wi-fi you can listen to your favorite radio station with crystal clear clarity through your phone!

I’ll not claim to know how they do it but ooTunes manages to support AAC, AAC+, MP3, OGG Vorbis, and Flash Streams too!

The wonderful staff at ooTunes will even add streams (if it’s available) if you can’t find your favorite in their extensive list.

If you like streaming radio, listening to the ‘old school’ FM Radio, or just trying to find new types of Music ooTunes is certainly worth checking out. When you do find something you like, through the interface you can share what you’re listening to on Twitter or Facebook.

Some stations support pushing the currently playing song and the album artwork out to the app. Sadly Manx Radio doesn’t but I’ll live with it for now 🙂

Just search the app store for ooTunes.

(there is a media server feature to ooTunes too. Check out the site and the app for more info on that)
