Hey, I'm Skylar. You've probably wondered if it's possible to listen to FM radio on your iPhone. Technically it is, it does have the right chip to receive FM radio, but it's not actually possible, you can't enable it. So how are you going to do it? Well, short answer an app. There are a few out there if you just search The App Store for FM radio, you'll find a whole bunch. I prefer one called Stitcher, and I'll show you why. I've already installed it, it's right here, just tap Stitcher and open it up, under settings I can change my location so that's what I'm going to do first. Tap location and then enter my zip code; back to the front page, if I tap live radio it allows me to choose a couple genres or tap nearby live radio. Here we go a few radio stations all in my area that are broadcasting currently over the Internet. So I could tap WCYY Portland's Alternative Rock and start listening right away and no buffering, no nothing, just streams. The cool thing about this is that it actually also will stream pod casts and all sorts of other stuff to boot. So, if I have some pod casts that I follow, I would add them to stations. So I'm a little bit of an conspiracy nut sometimes, Red Ice Radio is one of my favorites, but the cool thing is that when I added Red Ice Radio to Stitcher, it added a whole bunch of things that it thought I might be interested in. So if I want I can listen to the Liberty or Zombie pod cast or The Colbert Report, Black Op Radio and all sorts of cool stuff, but I wouldn't have known about them without Stitcher. So I highly recommend if you're interested in radio, download it, check it out, see what you find. Thanks for tuning in. I'm Skylar.
