Being able to listen to whatever we want via free radio apps like iHeartRadio is great, but sometimes it's nice to take a break from awkwardly singing along with Justin Bieber in the car or on the bus. That's why Clear Channel is updating their app with more Talk content. Users will be able to add several news, entertainment, and other sorts of radio talk shows to their playlists - including segments from ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "The View."

Alongside the increased Talk love comes a couple of minor (but significant) interface updates. An easier-to-navigate pull out screen can be used for quick access to presets and saved favorites, and it's now possible to browse by category.

It seems like just yesterday that radio giant Clear Channel announced the launch of their new music streaming app iHeartRadio.  A few months later the company announced the first annual iHeartRadio Music Festival, bringing in big name acts like Jay-Z, Coldplay and Lady Gaga to perform.  Talk about a way to get your app out there!

Eight months since the launch of the tool, it looks like their marketing blitz has payed off in a big way.  Today, Clear Channel was pleased to announce that they have surpassed ten million registered users.

If you are unfamiliar with the application, you most likely haven't turned on a radio in the last year or so.  It has been getting plugged everywhere within Clear Channel's massive circle of influence, and thus, has become tremendously popular.  As far as free music streaming tools go, if you don't own it already it is well worth giving a look.
