Popular TuneIn App Immediately Available for Windows 8

Redesigned App to Give Windows 8 Users Unlimited, Free Access to the World's Radio

PALO ALTO, CA and REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - TuneIn, the leading service for listening to music, sports and news streams from around the world, announced it is available as an app for Windows 8. This version of TuneIn -- completely redesigned to leverage the new Windows UI -- can be downloaded for free from the Windows Store. This announcement adds to the more than 200 platforms that distribute the TuneIn service to over 40 million monthly active listeners from around the world.

"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 for Windows 8. 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."

TuneIn is widely accessible on more than 200 devices, and available practically anywhere with an Internet signal, including all major smartphones and tablets, smart TVs and radios, car dashboards and on the web at tunein.com.
