    The last I heard was that it was being updated for WP8 but I'm struggling to find any more info on it. I'm desperately waiting for this app. Tunein was awesome on the iPhone and I want it back for my WP8 device.

    I sent them a message from their website over a week ago asking if it will be available for WP8; no response. It is a favorite from WP7.5 and I miss it greatly.

    They're updating it. I imagine performance will be vastly improved in wp8 as it was always a bit slow on wp7. Can't wait for it to come out.

    This app and or sirius/xm could be dealbreakers for me. I will give it a mont, b/c I love the phone. If they do not come out in a month I will probably get the iphone 5. I contacted TuneIn and sirius/xm. Tunein didn't even respond and sirius/xm didn't answer the question. What I don't get is I was able to download TuneIn for my windows 8 computer but not for my nokia 920?

    I think he meant Clearwire Radio Stations. Clearwire owns a lot of stations nationwide and all are available on the iHeart app, along with some other non Clearwire stations. But the two apps do not mirror each other. So the station you are looking for might not be available on iHeart. I use iHeart to listen to KTLK and Q104.3, but I want TuneIn back to listen to KNAC.com.

    Ok, I just tried the iheart app on my Blackberry, mainly because I don't have my 822 yet, and it sucks! So I'm really hoping that the app for WP8 is better and can hold me up till tunein is back.

    What I find wierd is that Microsoft said that it would be easy to convert app from windows 8 to windows phone 8, so Tunein and other apps are available in windows 8, should not take that much time to get it to wp8???

    iHeart is owned by Clear Channel Broadcasting. Clear Channel is the company that bought up a lot of radio stations over the last 15 years or so. It is a way for them to continue to reach consumers who no longer listen to traditional radio in their cars and homes. If it's not one of their stations or affiliates, you won't hear it on iHeart Radio. Good news is, they own a ton of stations and iHeart was how they centralized the considerable content their stations have. I live in a big city and let's say there are 20 major stations of various types of music and sports radio, Clear Channel would own about 15 of them.

    There is no overlap between iHeart and TuneIn. If it's a Clear Channel station or affiliate, you won't hear it on TuneIn and vice versa.

    I personally think music and radio was better before Clear Channel came along but I'm happy to be able to listen to a few of my favorite local radio stations easily when I want but I'm definitely looking forward to the new TuneIn and Pandora apps. There are several W8 apps that aren't on WP8, I hope it won't be that long of a wait for them to migrate over to WP.

    I went to the TuneIn website and clicked on the link to get the app for Windows Phone. I got directed to the Windows Phone Store and it says this "Your version of the Windows Phone software is not supported by this application."

    Thanks for that. It's only got one review and its a 2 star review at that. No way of trying before I buy and its 2. Hmm, I would like to hear from a few people before I commit. Otherwise I'll hang on for Tune In.

    Thanks though, I appreciate the heads up. Looks quite good.

    Well, I was getting desperate and thought I could be clever. I have a WP Dev account, so I can sideload applications on my phone. I downloaded the TuneIn Radio .xap file from the marketplace and tried to sideload it on my phone. It threw some framework errors and basically spat it back out at my face. We're truly waiting here for TuneIn to publish the update app.

    FWIW, I finally got a generic reply from TuneIn from a email I sent about a WP8 app.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. I will pass this on to our development team and we hope to have this feature fixed in a future release. I apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your support of TuneIn!

    Sincerely,

    Derek

    I live in Pensacola but normally listen to Jacksonville sports radio because I am a Jaguars fan (don't laugh). TuneIn was great for this on my HTC One X and I used it every day. I was dissapointed to find that when I upgraded to my Lumia 920 it was not imported for WP8, so I have been missing it allot. I went ahead and took the plunge and paid for the GrabRadio app. You guys wanna know the funny thing? My radio staions are available on GrabRadio and at the very top it says TuneIn with the font we all know. The station works great and I again have the ability to stream my sports talk station from my phone in the car.

    The problem I have had with the app since install is it will ramdomly not start. I click the tile and it acts like it wants to load then just goes back to the apps list. I have removed it and reinstalled it and it goes into a non loading loop. Not sure what the deal is, but I went from excited to sad pretty quickly.
