Download: You can download AppRadioLIVE from the App Store today.


  1. I am currently trying this app out. It's kind of similar to EC Touch, except the integrated app choices are different and there are less of them. The problem with EC Touch is that it doesn't work very well, and it costs $6 to find that out lol. AppRadioLive seems to do everything it says, but I wish the maps portion was Waze. It'll let you go from Inrix to "NAV", and in my case, that is Waze. Then it will switch over to the NAV app, completely leaving AppRadioLive. I listen to a lot of podcasts and use CarMediaPlayer for that. Using Stitcher within AppRadioLive works nicely (I've never used stitcher before), but it won't remember your place in a podcast if you come back to it at a later time. Overall I like the novelty of this app, but it just adds another layer to an already complicated infotainment system. I may end up deleting it. I'm already used to using all the apps separately. ...and only a handful of apps are compatible with AppRadioLive.

    1. May i ask where you are from?

      I'm trying to download the app in the UK but can't find it in the app store no matter what I search for.

    2. Maybe it's available in the US only.

    3. That's me. ...and I'm in the USA.

  2. I was able to download it in Canada. Seems to work pretty well. Best feature is the schedule app part of it. Takes FB Twitter and all other data sources and shows you concerts, and other related music stuff going on around town. That is pretty useful if you can think of where to go or what is happening in your town. Also if the calendar event has a location, a single press gives you the directions. Works slick. Agree with the Waze idea. I think if they added Swarm, email and had notifications tied to iMessage they would have everything I was looking for. Still hoping Apple pushes for app radio integration but I hear its delayed on the NEX systems again. Whatever the case you don't have the annoying prompts that the app radio app makes you press everytime. Wish the button on the radio could link to this app instead, and have app radio as a button inside of Live. The internet radio works slick here in Canada where we can't get a music service like Pandora.

  3. I have managed to get this working by obtaining this from the US app store, however, the map data etc is not set up for the UK so is pointless at the minute.

    Can't wait for this to be made available to the UK as it seems to work fine under IOS8 beta2
