If you are one of those who prefers to listen to the radio to watch television and therefore, you like to have radios around you. Then you will be pleased to know that FStream and the website BBC Streams They have teamed up to bring you radio streaming at your fingertips whenever you want. Fabulous no?
Of French origin, FStream knows how to play Streams in a very decent variety of formats including MP3, OGG, AAC, M3U and the default format used by the BBC for their streams, ASX. (If you need help creating them, the BBC’s streaming website has a very useful learning guide. It is worth noting that this site is not an official BBC product (I am not entirely clear who is behind it. Another thing to note is that the streams might not work if you are outside the UK.).
If you’re not interested in the BBC, the app comes with dozens of pre-set radio stations from iTunes, SourceMac, and Shoutcast. There are all kinds and for all tastes, directly from the whole world. And look, there is more! FStream also includes a simple audio recorder. If the station starts broadcasting something interesting and you want to save it, just press the button Engrave and later Start to save a copy of it, in WAV or AIFF format. Right now there is no way to make those recordings playable off the phone, but having them on hand is enough. FStream is one of those applications that is worth having and even more so if it is free.
