Sports fans can find updates scores and read sports headlines using a variety of different iPod Touch and iPhone apps. Sometimes, just knowing the score isn’t enough for sports fans. One thing that I, a sports fan, love about my iPod Touch are the variety of different radio apps I’ve downloaded. These radio apps let me listen to sports talk radio and live sports using the iPod Touch or iPhone. Here are my top iPod Touch & iPhone sports radio apps (in no particular order).
Top iPod Touch & iPhone radio apps for sports fans #1: ESPN Radio App
I am not one to pay for iPod Touch & iPhone apps. There are far too many free radio and sports apps in the iTunes Store. I was convinced to purchase the ESPN Radio App by numerous different friends and fellow sports fans. The app was, without question, the thing I have purchased for my iPod Touch. The ESPN Radio App lets me listen to ESPN Radio stations from numerous different cities, including Pittsburgh (great as I’m a Penguins fan), New York (Mets and Giants fan), Chicago (Bulls fan) and Hawaii (…OK, this one is just neat). Arguably the best part about the ESPN Radio App is that you can listen to the radio app in the background. That’s right. You can listen to ESPN Radio and open other apps at the same time. Awesome.
Top iPod Touch & iPhone radio apps for sports fans #2: I Heart Radio
I Heart Radio has numerous different sports talk radio stations not found on the ESPN Radio App. The I Heart Radio app is also a free download, which gets it a big thumbs up from this guy. I also like the I can listen to Pittsburgh Penguins games (practically) live using I Heart Radio. The national Fox Sports Radio feed can also be listened to via I Heart Radio.
Top iPod Touch & iPhone radio apps for sports fans #3: AOL Radio
If the sports or sports talk radio station isn’t found on ESPN Radio or I Heart Radio, you’ll probably get it at AOL Radio. As with I Heart Radio, the AOL Radio App is free to download and use (WOOO!). I’ve found that the sound on the AOL Radio app is just a little bit better than all of the other radio apps mentioned in this piece. AOL Radio also has WFAN 660 AM out of New York. The ability to take Steve Somers wherever I go? Five stars, right there.
Top iPod Touch & iPhone radio apps for sports fans #4: Flycast
I read plenty of negative Flycast reviews before downloading this free radio app. People claimed that the app shutdown in mid-stream and that the volume wasn’t great. I can say that I haven’t had any real problems when listening to sports radio using Flycast. WFAN is on Flycast, which is the first reason I downloaded the app. Flycast also has radio stations that you may not find on other apps. Really want to listen to sports talk radio out of Rochester? Flycast is for you.
Are these four all there is when it comes to iPod Touch & iPhone sports radio apps? Nah. They’re a good start and then some, though. You download these four radio apps on your iPod Touch or iPhone and you will be a very satisfied sports fan after just one day.
