Windows Mobile Internet Radio Apps
As a big fan of a particular genre of music that isn’t commonly supported by radio stations in the UK, virtually the only place I can get my fix of classic rock music is online. This is fine if I’m at home; I can get music from suitable channels either via my TV set top box or through my PC.
Thanks to some very clever apps that take advantage of the data connection on my Windows Mobile phone, however, it is possible for me to now kick my shoes off and enjoy some great vintage guitar rock whether I’m on the move, on the train, in a café, or staying in a hotel!
The following apps are a mix of free Internet radio for Windows Mobile and premium applications, each offering an almost limitless supply of music, sports, and spoken word audio content.
This is a premium solution– but worth every penny. Made by the same company that brought you the Spb Mobile Shell user interface, SPB radio features 1500+ genuine radio stations from around the world, organized into easily navigated and searchable genres.
Providing an excellent connection your internet radio station of choice, SPB Radio does have a slight downside – the app tends to take over your phone, preventing access to background tools like email and calendar, while it has its own volume control which overrides the standard Windows Mobile volume.
