TuneIn now available on Windows 8


TuneInTuneIn is available as an app on the new operating system. TuneIn says it has taken full advantage of the new Windows UI, redesigning the app and creating a unique TuneIn experience for Windows 8 users. This announcement adds to the more than 200 platforms/devices that distribute the TuneIn service to over 40 million monthly active listeners from around the world.

This version of TuneIn can be downloaded for free from the Windows Store.

“TuneIn is a highly rated app for streaming audio, and we are thrilled it has created a unique version for Windows 8,” said John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “With TuneIn, consumers can easily find and listen to their favorite artists, sports teams, comedians and talk personalities while they work, read or play.”

This version of TuneIn has been completely redesigned. Glossy backdrops of concertgoers appear in the background as listeners navigate smoothly between live radio stations, on-demand programs and the now-playing screen. If listeners find a favorite station, they can easily add it to their Favorites or pin it directly to their Start screen.

“The Windows 8 operating system has helped us reimagine the TuneIn experience for an environment where simplicity and quickly getting what you want are at the forefront,” noted Kristin George, Director of Product, TuneIn. “Not only did Windows 8 give us the canvas to create a beautiful interface that works with keyboard, mouse, and touch, but it also helped us showcase how TuneIn can easily deliver listeners’ favorite stations by providing the ability to pin them directly to their Start screen.”
