What is aacPlus?

What about apps for smartphones or tablets to listen to Bear Radio on the go?

The TuneIn app is a robust app delivering free local, international and Internet radio. TuneIn makes it easy for listeners to access radio through websites, mobile devices, home entertainment centers, connected desktop products and even auto in-dash receivers. It is available for Android, iPhone/iPad, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Palm and Samsung Bada.

Nullriver has an app called “Tuner“, available in the iTunes App Store. It requires an iPhone or iPod touch with firmware 3.1 or later, plus an internet connection (WiFi, 3G or EDGE). You can select stations to listen from the app’s genres or Top 500 listings, or type one in using the “open” button in the search menu. Bear Radio has two feeds under the genres — Eclectic. You can bookmark a station as a favorite for later use. We found that the 64kbps works best when traveling in your car. Of course when traveling you may loose the connection as your phone switches cell towers. You may have to restart if playback starts to skip.

The AOL SHOUTCast Radio App is a FREE App available from the Apple Store and lists over 25,000 station on the AOL SHOUTcast Radio Network, which Bear Radio Network is apart of. The App does have pop-up ads on it’s play screen. Also to listen to “Hi-bit streams” you have to turn that feature on, this is done not in the App but in iPhone/iPod Touch main “Settings” section. The best way to find Bear Radio Network is to do a search, then once you play the station save it as a favorite by tapping the star in the upper right. This App does not allow you to enter non-SHOUTcast Radio URLs. There is a new version available for Andriod.

What are your direct Stream URLS?

Some audio players do not update their internal station listings as often as we would like, so sometimes you may have to manually enter our stream url. Contact us by email if you are having any issues.
