I'm correct, aren't I, that iPhone 3G iTunes doesn't support streaming radio as does the desktop iTunes ?

If not, what have users found *the most reliable radio app. for the 3G* to be: I've tried the French one (awful: no tech support), AOL and NPR don't stream the stations I want to listen to and WunderRadio, good though it is, continues to lose the stream at least twice during any one session.

Anyone found a reliable solution, please?

TIA!

    Some radio stations have their own individual App on the iTunes Store. WMGK in Philadelphia is one, for example (102.9 MGK).

    I noticed that the "info" page of that App has the developers name and contact info. If you can put your favorite station in touch with an App developer, then maybe you'll see it on the iTunes Store as an individual streaming App.

    Many App developers look to solicit additional work via their Apps. Cloning and existing streaming radio App for another station shouldn't be too difficult (read:expensive).

    Hi,
    You could try ooTunes Radio (in the app store). I'm the developer and it's the first release so it's definitely not perfect, but I'll promise you the best customer support in the world!

    More info here: http://ootunes.com/app/

    NOTE: Since I am the developer

    I may receive some form of compensation, financial or otherwise, from my recommendation or link.

    I believe the app called 'Radio' by Worldwide Intersect LLC, has all the desktop Itunes radio stations...

    I have tried a bunch and I really like FStream...

    It's simple, reliable and free.

    Have fun!
