FlyTunes adds radio stations to iPhone, iPod touch

The FlyTunes service offers users a personalized satellite radio-like experience with channels of digital music, according to FlyTunes CEO Sam Abadir. It doesn't require a receiver or additional hardware purchase; it works with your cell phone or personal media player. FlyTunes offers access to over 100 times more channels than satellite radio, Abadir says. It plays everywhere, unlike satellite radio, which doesn't work inside buildings or on planes, he adds.

The service allows users to personalize their music channels. While listening, users can promote favorite songs and flag unwanted ones. There are no setup or monthly fees for FlyTunes. It works with Macs and PCs and will be released as a free download on Jan. 21 at the FlyTunes.fm web site[/url].

Here's what Wired had to say about FlyTunes' AccuRadio implementation: "It's easy to sign up for AccuRadio on an iPhone or iPod Touch, and we found the interface well-designed and intuitive. However, the iPhone/iPod Touch implementation comes with some limitations. Each station loads as a Quicktime movie, and it's impossible to skip to the next song or see the name or artist for the currently-playing song. In that way, AccuRadio on the iPhone is closer to traditional FM stations than to online streaming services. Also, when we loaded the same station twice, it started with the same two songs -- these 'stations' appear to be precached playlists."
