That the iPhone does not include radio we all know. For some, it’s a feature that would be nice have, is indifferent to others. But thanks to the internet we can listen to radio, provided that the broadcaster in question have issuance over the internet. In OS X have to Radium, a genius in many ways but possibly with an excessive price application, 19 euros.
For iOS, there are many alternatives, from own Apps from the stations to the more general. In the past I’ve tried I stay with Radio alarm clock, an application for iOS that allows us to replace the typical alarm clock of the bedside table for our iOS device.
Radio Alarm Clock
Radio alarm clock is a well developed radio application. With a very according to the aesthetic iOS, user-friendly and simple interface for any user. Us offers more than 200 Spanish radio as well as a large number of international radios. Within the Spanish radio national emissions and local we can find both.
It works with our device iOS connected to a wifi network and also through the 3 G data connection with a minimum consumption. Anyway, unless you have a data plan without more limitations than the drop of speed it is recommended to go with eye. Especially now that it seems that data consumption has increased for reasons that still must be resolved.
There is much complexity. When we open the application you will see a bar of icons at the bottom of the screen which gives us access to our favorite stations, national radios, radios, local, international and last alarms.
When we access the listings of radios you can play them with just tap on it. Also to pause it slip your finger left or right. And if you want to add it to Favorites, only we have to touch on the star that appears to the right.
If you look in the top right icon to stopwatch mode that will give us the option to set a sleep timer to turn off the radio After the specified time. Something useful when we go to sleep.
Here is where you must be careful. The application can induce mistakes by name although it is not the fault of the developer. As indicated in your Twitter account, by limitations imposed by Apple, the application is unable to start playback of the radio station to sound the alarm. For this reason, we will first hear selected alarm sound. Then, as soon as we touch on notice and to unlock the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will start the reproduction of the radio.
It is a pity that we can not wake up with radio in our iOS device, before the alarm sound, and we will have to turn it off so that it unlocks the device and start playing the radio. Anyway, although this can subtract something of interest in the application, is to be a good choice to combine in a single application, radio and alarm clock.
Now is already question of each to decide if the price of Radio alarm, 2.39 EUR, it compensates for taking into account what offers and the limitation of the alarm.
