After expecting to see this app to make an appearance sometime on the app store, I was quite excited to see it earlier today. The Official 5FM iPhone app (FREE) is now available on the iTunes app store. Nice !
The app offers a whole bunch of features, least of all, streaming, which is very cool. I have posted before about how to stream 5FM on the iPhone, but this now make it so much easier.
Some of the features include:
- Play the 5FM radio station live and in the background on multitasking capable devices
- View live track-list information which displays previously played songs, the current song as well as the next song to be played (when available)
- News feed with up-to-date information on the latest 5FM news
- Twitter feed displaying the latest tweets from 5FM
- Audio visualizer
- Live webcam views of the two 5FM recording studios
- Backgrounding support
