10753PocketTunes Replacements on iDevices
- Jun 18, 2012Although I've used Pockettunes in one form or another since I used a
Palmpilot. There are 4 features that needed to be replaced on my
iPad/iPod/iPhone when, like Norm, I moved on. It was nice having all of
these in one app but some good things do come to an end.
Radio: All of my stations are found on iHeartradio and/or TuneIn
Radio. These 2 "free" apps synchronize user favorites across multiple
platforms as well. Podcast: I rarely use them so the stock (free)
player suffices. I cannot recommend a replacementScanner: US Police
Scanner ("free") (I accidentally purchased Norm's Pocket Tunes Police
Emergency Scanner which also works but I don't know if he uses a feed
that doesn't require on-going support.)Sirius/XM: Sirius/XM (free)
and/or MusicDock ("free") - the developer provides NO support for it so
some channels are missing
*"free" is ad-supported but there may be "Pro" versions that remove
