Excerpted from my daily feeds this from the folks at make use of dot com
Internet radio has become a popular entertainment source especially for music and podcast-like talk shows. I have found a great application that allows you to listen to Internet radio on the move without shelling out for an expensive smart phone.
VirtualRadio is an application for Java enabled cell phones which allows the user to listen to Internet radio stations on their cell phone. The app uses the GPRS internet connection available on almost all cell phones to download the audio at a rate of 32kb/s. The audio quality is very high and music is crisp and uninterrupted.
There are loads of different channels to choose from and categories (called groups) to browse through channels which interest you such as ‘Music’ and ‘Politics’.
The app is completely free to download and use, although GPRS costs apply and vary depending on your network.
- Listen to radio on your phone.
- Multiple Channels.
- Good quality audio.
- Works on almost any Java enabled cell phone.
