HD Radio Comes To iPod touch and iPhone Via Gigaware In-Line Control
Today, HD Radio is landing on two of the most popular handheld media devices of all time: the iPod touch and iPhone. There are certainly other options for getting HD Radio on-the-go, with Insignia's NS-HD01 being one and Microsoft's Zune HD being another. But for those who have already purchased an iPod touch or iPhone, neither of those options seem all that appealing.
Gigaware's in-line controller solves the problem, bringing an actual HD Radio receiver to Apple's two hottest products. You simply plug this into your device's dock connector, download the free app from the App Store and start listening to your nearby HD Radio and FM Radio broadcasts. The app allows you to bookmark your favorite stations and even tag songs for purchasing later in iTunes. Users can use the dial on the screen to change the station, or simply use the control wheel on the in-line dial if you have your favorites established.
The adapter is selling now at RadioShack for $79.99, and the app to use it is available for free.
