There are a few others that didn't quite make the cut - the Denon Remote
app (Android version
) is great if you have one of the company's '11 or '12 series receivers; Crestron Mobile G
is great for home automation if you have Crestron in your home (an alternative Android app is here
); and of course there's plenty of internet radio apps out there too. Of these, our favourites are:
TuneIn Radio - Over 50,000 stations including local AM / FM stations (Android version)
Radio Paradise - A single station that has a great, varied mix better than any broadcast station we know -and no ads! (Android widget here)
SomaFM - 20 channels of indy rock, pop, dance and downtempo beats broadcast from San Francisco (unofficial Android version here)
