iPhone app

Back in 2007, WFMU was the first station in the world to stream live audio to the iPhone and with the v2.1 release of our iPhone app we've once again pushed the envelope for mobile radio.

Our free iPhone app allows you to listen to both our 128k and 32k streams as well as all our alternate web only streams. Also available are recent archives for our entire schedule (with real time playlists when available), our full slate of podcasts, access to Beware of the Blog, Upcoming Events, Station News and our Twitter stream. Other features include realtime commenting, Twitter + Facebook integration, Last.fm scrobbling, the ability to favorite songs and purchase them directly from iTunes, rewinding live audio and background streaming.

You can grab our iphone app here.



Android App

In 2010 WFMU released its first app for the Android operating systen. Our Android app includes 128k and 32k versions of our live streams as well as all of our alternate streams. On demand content, such as our Podcasts and recent archives are also available as is recent Station News.

Our Android app is currently available for free in the marketplace. Just search for "WFMU" (or if you are viewing this page on your phone click here).

If you encounter long startup buffering times or unreliable streaming, note that Android-using listeners who encountered those problems have had good luck listening to the live streams with an app called TuneIn Radio. In addition, TuneIn Radio from the Amazon app store can be a WFMU lifeline for Kindle Fire users.



Other Phones

Currently iPhone and Android OS's account for over 80% of our mobile traffic so we have chosen to focus on these platforms. Ideally we would love to provide a customized app for every mobile platform but unfortunately we are unable to do so.

Below are some tips for how to listen on various mobile platforms along with some urls you can try using to grab our streams in whatever mobile client you may be using.

Blackberry - Many of our listeners seem to enjoy the free YourMuze (formerly Moodio) site. It is free but requires registration. As far as paid software RadioBee and BerryTunes are both worth checking out.

Nokia - Try Nokia Internet Radio or YourMuze and let us know how it goes.

Windows Mobile - Try using GSPlayer

Pre - Try using the "Internet Radio" app and looking up WFMU on Shoutcast Radio
