Listen to radio your iPhone, iPod or iPad
Simple as an app
By R. Zucker
These apps allow you to choose from hundreds, or even thousands, of radio stations and frequencies worldwide that will play on Apple's mobile devices.
Not all apps are the same, so downloading several apps to test can help decide.
The free radio station apps have most of the features as the paid apps, but may lack more channels, better quality and reception.
Listen to Police and Public Safety Calls
For those interested in listening to police, fire and public safety channels, the free 5-0 Radio Police Scanner Lite app will scan local channels or specified cities for updated, live, police firefighters, aircraft, railroad, marine, emergency and ham radios. This is one of the most popular police scanner apps.
To transmit your iPhone to your car's speakers, check out FM Radio Transmitters.
