Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Finally, an extensive database of AM radio stations in the United States that can be searched and sorted by Sports Team, Format/Genre, Signal Strength (which is a function of distance and power), State, Frequency and more. All the information is presented in an easy to read table format. Best of all, the database is offline and does not require internet which works flawlessly even if your phone is on Airplane Mode. That is over 4,800 AM radio stations and over 1,000 VORs in the US. Also as an added feature, this app will automatically tell you the name of the VOR in use if all you know is the three letter identifier. ie: FAK -> Flat Rock
This app is designed mainly for aviation use, as it is necessary to input a VOR to compute distance, so for non-aviation users, this app might not be for you.
What's New in Version 1.3
This version takes advantage of the iPhone 5's longer screen size. And as an added feature, you can now create a "Favorites" list that you can access just as you would during "Sort" view. The Favorites list is sorted initially by signal strength.
Very useful on those long boring flights! Thank you!
Oh my god.
I had started a list of stations on paper and got bored/failed. This is a total life changer. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DESIGNING THIS
Good idea, but....
Great idea, but woefully out of date. Many many stations with incorrect/outdated formats. Many stations off the air. Once the database is updated, this is a 5 star. As it sits, as of Oct of 2014, it is basically worthless.
