iHeartRadio for iOS Updated with Support for CarPlay

Radio streaming service iHeartRadio has updated its official iOS app to include support for Apple's CarPlay iOS vehicle integration feature. Users can now search and play any live or favorited radio station through their CarPlay-compatible in-dash car system, and can also listen to archived on-demand episodes from multiple categories like News, Sports, and Comedy.

This newest update also brings a new Today Widget for the Notification Center which allows users to access recently played stations quickly. Apple announced in June that iHeartRadio would be getting CarPlay support along with other popular apps like Beats Music, MLB At Bat, and Spotify, which received its CarPlay update earlier this month.

iHeartRadio is a free app for iOS devices and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

None really. The app lets you connect to actual live broadcast radio stations from across the country.

None of the above. iHeartRadio is for listening to any radio station that you're not within range of. My daily commute covers 40 miles, so I'm only able to listen to my favorite local radio program for the first 10 miles or so over the air. After that, I'm out of their broadcast range so I swap over to listening to them via iHeartRadio for the remaining 30 miles of my commute.

Between iHeartRadio and Spotify, you don't really need anything else... you used to need to buy songs off of iTunes sometimes, but it seems to me that at this point, everyone who isn't on Spotify is someone specifically refusing to join Spotify (so I specifically refuse to listen to them. IE, Rammstein. You're one band out of thousands that I like, there's nothing about you that's so special that I'll treat you any different from any other band. If you really want my money, tour.)

iHeartRadio downloads and displays video ads when you're on LTE, wasting your already limited bandwidth.

Not cool ClearChannel.
