RadioTime is now offering its TuneIn Radio app in an iPad version. The company says it features an interface that fills the iPad's screen display and allows users to listen to live streams and podcasts in the background while browsing the Web.

The iPad version can also serve as a DVR for radio letting users record, pause, and rewind radio. TuneIn Radio is available now. TuneIn Radio is available as a universal iOS app on the App Store for $1.99

Through a press release Bill Moore, RadioTime CEO, said, "We want our users to be able to take full advantage of the iPad's screen and horsepower, so we created a new interface and other unique features, rather than merely enlarging the original iPhone version."

TuneIn Radio features the RadioTime directory of more than 50,000 AM/FM and Internet-only radio stations and podcasts airing in 140 countries and broadcasting in 55 different languages. Users can search for music and programs by the names of artists or on-air personalities, specific songs, station call letters and genre.

Other features include using the iPad's GPS and WiFi capabilities to automatically detect local stations.

RadioTime has also developed free, ad-supported versions of TuneIn Radio for the Android, Palm and BlackBerry mobile platforms.
