TuneIn Radio 3.6 gets Live for iPhone, better interface, faster sync
Friday, May 24, 2013 @ 5:43pm

Radio service TuneIn has released a new version of its iOS app, v3.6. The update brings TuneIn Live to the iPhone, it having previously been restricted to the iPad. The Live screen shows album art and show titles that switch each time something new begins. Users can swipe through tiles to find new songs or shows that have started on any station hosted by TuneIn, and add events like concerts, games, or shows to a personal calendar, which triggers notifications whenever something starts.



The whole iPhone interface has been updated graphically. On the iPad, swiping in TuneIn Live has been made smoother. For both platforms favorites should now sync faster, and carry over any custom URLs between devices. Songs and stations can be newly shared via Google+. Because of "recent App Store changes," TuneIn says it has also changed how alarms work. To have them go off, users must now keep TuneIn running in the foreground, and make sure Disable Auto Lock is turned on in the Advanced Settings menu.
