iHome is an established name in the iDevice dock department, but lately, in an attempt to make their docks more appealing, they’ve been getting more into app making. Their first app, iHome + Sleep works with any app-enhanced iPhone dock to give users the most comprehensive alarm anyone has ever seen. Many people complain that it is too comprehensive, having multiple alarms, sleep and wake music options, social updates, personal reminders, a whole range of stats, and more… but hey, it is free. If you can handle the complexity, it really is a nice app.
iHome + Radio isn’t the first internet radio app out there. In fact, it’s probably not the 10th, but it is a well made app. It have a fairly comprehensive 20,000 radio station catalog covering music, sports, and talk from all around the world. The collection isn’t quite as impressive as Wunder Radio, with its 50,000+ stations, but seriously, how many versions of your local rock station do you need to hear.
The thing that sets iHome + Radio apart is its integration with iHome + Sleep. iHome + Radio nicely lets you save your favorite stations into iHome + Sleep, as well as provides a control system for you new app enhanced iHome dock.
“iHome+Radio is a great stand-alone app for enjoying a multitude of Internet radio stations from around the world,” said Evan Stein, Vice President of Marketing, iHome. “However, when integrated with one of our app-enabled units like the iA5 and our award-winning iHome+Sleep app, the level of enjoyment and overall experience is enhanced, giving our customers the ability to sleep, wake or casually listen to their favorite radio stations from around the globe, regardless of their location.”
If you’re in the market for a new iPhone dock, pick up an iHome iA5 and plug in iHome + Radio. The combination works really nice, looks pretty, and will give you so more streaming tunes than you can handle.
