Gone are the days when listening to a radio meant huddling around a huge contraption in the living room. Radio has become so easily available that you can now even listen to it on your phone. Many mobile devices boast a built-in radion tuner, but it's unlikely that you'll have access to online stations. This is where S60 Internet Radio comes in, providing you with all that you need to listen to SHOUTcast broadcasts.

The program itself contains a comprehensive set of tools for defining a number of stations manually and to manage the playback of the broadcasts, including playing, stopping, adding URLs and adjusting the volume. You can even set up playlists of your favourite broadcasts to heighten your listening pleasure.

Besides allowing you to tune into online radio, the software also lets you listen to music locally. It is compatible with MP3, AAC, eAAC +, MP4, M4A, WMA, 3GPP, AMR and WAV formats, although there are no advanced playback tools such as an EQ or album artwork that you'll find in other players.

Although the player itself is a little basic, S60 Internet Radio provides a quick way of tapping into the wealth of stations available via SHOUTcast.

The S60 Internet Radio reference application is a fully working example of an audio application developed for the S60 platform. The application supports SHOUTcast streaming audio playback. Currently, MP3 and AAC+ streams are supported.

The application also supports local playback of audio files in the following formats: MP3, AAC, eAAC+, MP4, M4A, WMA, 3GPP, AMR, and WAV. Note that some formats may not be supported on some S60 products. This is dependent on the codecs that are available on specific phone models, and is not a limitation of the reference application.
