iPhone News: Griffin Announces iFM Radio Browser
      #33674 - 07/16/09 03:28 AM

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod and iPhone, today announced the availability of iFM Radio Browser for iPhone OS 3.0. The application, Griffin's first for the new OS, is designed to take full advantage of the platform's improved speed and performance. iFM Radio Browser connects users with radio in a way traditional and satellite radio services have never allowed, through an innovative, real-time media browser interface.

iFM Radio Browser, in the spirit of a cross-platform web browser, can work alongside any FM radio, whether in the car or in the home, and brings an interactive radio experience to iPhone and iPod touch. The application connects to real-time data, provided by Mediaguide Inc., to display a list of local FM radio stations within the US, as well as the artists currently playing on them, going beyond both RDS and satellite radio programming guides. Tapping a station in the list allows users to view song title, album art, artist biography, and upcoming concert events. iFM Radio Browser even allows the user to instantly purchase favorite music from the iTunes Music store or create a Wish List for future reference. A simple and attractive user interface allows easy navigation of the app, without compromising access to its numerous features.

iFM Radio Browser also provides a touch screen interface for Griffin's Navigate, an inline controller and FM radio for iPhone and iPod. A clever display sports a large silver knob; simple movement of the knob tunes the station on Navigate, allowing touch screen control of the hardware.

Editor's note: It doesn't work with Apple's own Radio Remote.

Software and hardware integration, a new feature in iPhone OS 3.0, is fully supported in iFM Radio Browser. This feature unlocks a number of new possibilities, not only for iFM Radio Browser, but for future families of prospective Griffin apps and accessories as well.

iFM Radio Browser Key Features
  • Browse by station, artist and genre (uses Core Location to find radio stations by area)
  • View song title, album art, and artist info for major FM stations in the US
  • Learn about upcoming concert dates
  • Listeners can instantly purchase music with the iTunes app or save to a Wish List
  • Paired with Griffin Navigate, iFM Radio Browser works as a touchscreen control interface

Pricing and Availability
FM Radio Browser is now available as a free download from the iTunes App store. For more information, visit
