Tune in to Radio Riel on your iPhone!

With the lat­est soft­ware, you can at last lis­ten to Radio Riel on your iPhone. First of all, you need to upgrade to Soft­ware Ver­sion 2.x, which you will be offered auto­mat­i­cal­ly when you sync.

Now you need a lit­tle App called Tuner, by Null­Riv­er. Go to the Apps Store on your iPhone and chose the Music sec­tion. Alter­na­tive­ly, locate it in the iTunes Apps Store, where you’ll find Tuner on the sec­ond page of the Music sec­tion at the time of writ­ing: click here to go there. It costs £2.99/$5US.

Buy the app and install it. Then open the appli­ca­tion and touch the Search but­ton (bot­tom of the screen, right hand side). At the top left of the Search page, touch Open… . Now enter the URL of Radio Riel’s Main Stream: http://music.radioriel.org and click Done.

The appli­ca­tion will now attempt to con­nect to Radio Riel. If it does­n’t man­age it (and quits to the Home screen) just try again. Save the sta­tion as a book­mark. You may find that the sta­tion name and track meta­da­ta are not cur­rent­ly dis­played — this appears to be a prob­lem with the cur­rent ver­sion of Tuner.

Enjoy Radio Riel on the go!

    Radio Riel sounds great on my palm Cen­tro, with­out any extra down­loads 🙂

    And I’ve been lis­ten­ing to RR suc­cess­ful­ly on my Nokia 770 and then 800 for months, also with no addi­tion­al down­loads.

    The thing that annoyed me most about the iPhone was not being able to tune in Inter­net radio sta­tions — but now you can.

    As the unit is so pop­u­lar I thought it worth a men­tion – but you’re per­fect­ly cor­rect. It should have been able to do this from the begin­ning — and with no addi­tion­al down­loads.

    Thanks for the com­ment!

    Null Riv­er has issued an update to Tuner that fix­es some ini­tial prob­lems with our stream: it now dis­plays the sta­tion name cor­rect­ly and the cur­rent track meta­da­ta; in addi­tion the audio is clear­er and does­n’t suf­fer momen­tary dropouts as was the case ini­tial­ly.

    If you pur­chased Tuner you will be offered the update auto­mat­i­cal­ly.
