SwipeRadio is a free iPad app to listen to radio stations online on the go. The app includes radio stations from around the world and across the genre like Sports, Music, News, etc.. The app also comes with feature of auto-detection of location using which it shows you the list of radio stations around you.
The coolest thing about the app is that there’s no need to signup/login and to remember your username and passwords. Even the switching between radio stations is just a swipe away. You only have to swipe left/right to go from one radio station to other. You can also mark radio stations as favorite so that you don’t have to search for the ones you like.
The app also comes with cool background skins which you can set individually for each of the radio station to suit your mood.
