I’m a huge music geek. I run a music blog, have over 10,000 songs in my iTunes library, and am always listening to new music on Rdio. Despite all that, though, I still find the music discovery process to be a really difficult and involving thing. I’m subscribed to email lists, I follow a bunch of bands on Facebook, and I use whatever services I can to keep up with new releases (surprisingly, Wikipedia is amazing for that).
Internet radio is one of those things that could be a great tool for music discovery if it had the right app to go with it, though. And Radium is exactly that right app. It’s been recently updated for iOS 7 and is one of the best audio experiences you can have on the platform. Read on to find out why this is a must-try.
If the iOS’ clock capabilities are too bland for your tastes, then you just might appreciate Radio Alarm Clock. This app is an all-in-one featuring a sleep timer, a shake-to-snooze option and has an old-timey antique display, among other features. It will also alert you that it’s time to wake up with nature sounds, radio stations or various other sounds of your choosing.

Pandora has all but become synonymous with Internet radio over the past decade. For those unfamiliar, Pandora is an automated music discovery service that is built on the Music Genome Project, an initiative to catalogue music using various elemental analyses with intent of being able to recommend music you might like based on music you already know you like.
Pandora has been around for quite some time, launching way back in the year 2000 and spending most of its life as an open tab on browsers everywhere. It arrived relatively early on iOS, but since then hasn’t undergone much in the way of visual or functional updates. However, Pandora recently added support for the extra screen real estate on the iPhone 5, so we think that this is a perfect opportunity to check out the changes that the app has seen. Grab your favorite pair of listening headphones and let’s dig in. (more…)
