Sports Radio for iPhone

Posted on by Brendan Wilhide , Macworld.com

Sports Radio for the iPhone puts your favorite sports radio station in your pocket. The $2 app from Intersect World features local, national and even several international sports radio stations. The program harnesses readily available live streams over the Internet in a very simple application. Still, while Sports Radio is straightforward to use, the application can be frustrating at times.


Be a Good Sport: Its interface isn’t flashy, but that’s not the point with Sports Radio. The app delivers streams from sports radio stations—including New York’s WFAN, in this case—to your iPhone or iPod touch.

In its current iteration, Sports Radio includes 25 national stations, mostly from major cities like Boston, Los Angeles, Boston and New York as well as many more smaller local stations. Most of the big name stations are here, including WEEI in Boston, WFAN in New York and WIP in Philadelphia for sports fans on the East Coast. A national ESPN feed is also available. Sports Radio also includes a smattering of international stations from countries like Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, and Venezuela. Intersect World also just added a directory of Canadian stations.

After the big name stations, the remaining local stations are more of a grab bag from across the country. Local ESPN-affiliated stations are not included—a restriction imposed on Intersect World by ESPN—so if you’re looking for your local ESPN affiliate, you’re out of luck.

All stations are sorted alphabetically by their call letters with the station location in tiny gray letters underneath. While the current list of stations isn’t so large as to make navigating the list difficult, an option to search stations by city or state would be helpful.

The quality of the available streams is quite good. I rarely experienced any problems with choppiness or sputtering feeds while testing Sports Radio on both WiFi and 3G networks.

Sports Radio includes Twitter and Facebook integration but this feature is rather poorly implemented. After authorizing Sports Radio to access your Twitter and Facebook accounts, the program tweets “I am listening to [radio station name] on Radio for iPhone” or posts the same thing to your Facebook profile. I can’t see any reason why a user would utilize either supported integration in its current state.

For sports fans looking for a way to listen to their local sports radio station when they’re out and about, Sports Radio is a good download. Before you buy, though, be sure to check Sports Radio’s App Store listing, which includes the latest set of supported stations.

Sports Radio is compatible with any iPhone or iPod touch running the iPhone 2.2.1 software update.
