TuneIn Radio for BlackBerry 10

Something we get asked a lot at CrackBerry is what apps will be making their way onto BlackBerry 10, from Instagram and Skype, all the way to TuneIn Radio. Well CrackBerry Nation sleeping just became a little easier as TuneIn Radio will be there at launch.

TuneIn Radio is an application that allows its users to stream and listen to over 70,000 live radio stations. BlackBerry users have been enjoying it for some time now on current devices, and they’ll be able to continue the enjoyment on BlackBerry 10 as well.

TuneIn Radio makes its way onto BlackBerry 10



Say this for BlackBerry — they seem to know they have an app problem and they’re working hard trying to fix it. A BlackBerry spokesperson has told AllThingsD that the company is “in talks” with both Instagram and Netflix (NFLX) to make mobile applications specifically for the BlackBerry 10 platform. However, the spokesperson also added that they “could not confirm when those apps will make their way into the store,” so BlackBerry fans may have to wait a while before they have access to two of the biggest apps in the mobile world. As we noted earlier, Instagram’s absence on BlackBerry 10 is particularly glaring because RIM claims it has a strong partnership with Instagram owner Facebook (FB).

Hmm, I guess those that got "Tunein Pro compliments of Blackberry" won't be able to migrate it over?

Aswesome! I love tunein, looks like tunein pro will be my first app purchase. Now just hoping for slacker and spotify. Last one to BB10 looses my $$

This is one of the most useful apps ever. I use this in my car each morning and afternoon. I'm thrilled this is coming.

The best part is, these guys code their apps according to the platform. So, the experience always matches the platform it's written for. so it should be a great bb10 experience.

I agree. It would be great to see Instagram available for BlackBerry 10. Even if you're not the type of person who cares about Instagram, there are probably plenty of current BlackBerry users who have wanted Instagram for BlackBerry for a long time, myself included.

I think instigram is a major app. There is no way the avalibility will be leaked before the launch. It one of those "BAM" its on BB10!
BB 10...Boldly taking over!

I hope the BB10 version works better than their Windows 8 app, which has been broken and doesn't work at all for the past 3 months or so.

Great news! I have the TuneIn Pro version compliments of BlackBerry as well. I will be more than happy to purchase this for the 10.

Yesss - best radio app bar none! Happy it's going to be there for launch, can't wait to see what other app surprises are in store! Making my decision to switch from Android much easier.

Awe!some! I think this is one of the best radio apps out there and use it all the time. I emailed them months ago asking but at the time they had no plans...glad that changed! Thanks TuneIn Radio!

I use tunedIn every day. I am very glad it will be on BB10 as I was worried because it is on on the playbook
Bold 9900 & Playbook
Blackberry by Choice

really ? as far i know, Tune In is not in Appworld on Playbook.

All you can only do is to port the android app TuneIn. That loads ok, but it doesnt play streams, because of codecs problem.

SO glad to hear TuneIn radio will be on BB10. I'm a TuneIn Radio Pro user for radio, podcast and scanner feeds. Best app of its type I've found, and my "must have" app for BB10.

Well, we don't have long to wait now for the big BB10 release. I'll be tuning in to tomorrow's webcast.

<< Lemme at that Z10 already! >>

Glad another great app is coming to BB10. I am a power browser user. Find your favourite radio station and book mark to your desktop.....throw common themes into a folder. Works great, all free, and uses no space. I personally think there is too much dependence on apps...i prefer to stay computer literate.....GO RIM!

i don't know where they're coming from with this v4.0 when all i can download from app world AND from tunein.com/bb is v2.3 from several years ago. where is version 3???

Same here. The pro version seems to have stopped at v2.3 but the free version gets bumped up to v4.0 and if you look at Appworld, the free version supports Z10 but look at the pro version ($4.99?) and it doesn't state support for the Z10. I bought the pro version after doing the app testing with Alex on the forums since I love this app and support it. What happened to the pro users?

I recently rediscovered TuneIn on my Blackberry. I have a ton of apps and started to play with it again. Love it more than Pandora! Glad it will be on BB 10

"BlackBerry users have been enjoying it for some time now on current devices"

except the Playbook. I've seen it on iOS, installed it on my Android phone, Samsung Smart TV and had it on my previous BB phone. It was an odd omission to not have it available on the Playbook. Ended up installing another app, which was almost as good.

Anyway, that is very good news.

The lamest, most unprofessional, "broadcast" I have ever seen: bad audio, NO audio, boring and repetitive 3rd world-ers appearances. The host rivals Carson Daly for Most Boring Human on Earth. The CEO looks, and sounds, like some repentant SS Lieutenant, feigning enthusiasm at
the end of World War II. OUT-OF-TOUCH? In Spades. Amateurish? Beyond Belief.

How the hell do you drag your feet this long, and then bore us to death with incessant self-congratulations, and irrelevant introductions? Exactly how arrogant and stupid are you?

It was late starting, the quality laughable and the content STILL not begun at 10:25 AM. How dare you waste our time in this manner!

10:41 AM

This CEO should never, EVER, be allowed before a camera and microphone,
again. He is the most out-of-it, arrogant stooge imaginable. He is a very obvious detriment. He has no idea where he is, or who he is talking to:
his offering is irritating- IN THE EXTREME. Absolutely Stupid, Offensive
and hopelessly Arrogant.
