TuneIn Radio was one of my most used apps of 2011, and it's starting out 2012 strongly as they've today announced an update to both the free and pro versions of the app.
The biggest feature of the update is the introduction of an all new car mode complete with voice commands. Using car mode it's possible to search by artist, album or even by a song name. Tell it what you want to listen to, and it will find it.
You also get an adapted interface tweaked for use in a vehicle, with extra large buttons to make it easier to jab at the correct button while your phone is safely docked in the windscreen.
We also get some bug fixes, a new setting that controls how long a stream will buffer before playing, and a fix to a sleep timer and alarm clock issue.
Curious? TuneIn have produced a handy little video exhibiting the new car mode feature. It, along with download links for the free version of TuneIn Radio can be found after the break.
