Every now and then, an app comes along that makes you scratch your head in wonder at just how it works. One such app is What’s On Air. It kind of reminds me of the traffic alert system on my car radio but while I understand that, I’m intrigued as to how What’s On Air figures things out.

You see, this app keeps track of your favorite music then detects what songs and bands are playing currently on all manners of internet radio stations. Once it’s tracked the song or band name down, it can then switch to that station with the shake of your iOS device. Plus you can always browse through what’s currently being played on air.

There’s more too with multitasking meaning you can listen from outside of the app and you can browse through information about your favorite band courtesy of Wikipedia, YouTube and a full discography.

Priced at $1.99, What’s On Air looks set to be an ideal way of ensuring you get the best out of the radio airwaves.
