TuneIn Radio is available for download free on iOS and Android devices and is primarily designed for listening to Internet radio stations and has introduced podcast functionality. Along with listening to AMI-audio podcasts you can also use the app to tune into AMI-audio by live streaming our station, provided you're connected to the Internet. Easily locate the AMI-audio live stream by searching for "AMI-audio." Knowing how to make use of the VoiceOver rotor will allow far more enjoyable use of this app to listen to podcasts.

How To Subscribe:

  1. There are four tabs across the bottom of the app: Home, Favorites, Browse and Search. Double-tap on the "Search" tab.
     
  2. You will be placed in an edit field where you can type in the name of a show. For example: The Pulse. When you’re done typing, find and double-tap the search button in the bottom right corner.
     
  3. Search results are divided into categories with stations being given top spot. With the rotor set to headings, flick down until you come to podcasts. At that point, flick right to go through the results. Double-tap the one you want. This takes you to the podcast's profile page.
     
  4. Feel around the top of the screen to find the back button. Flick right a few times to find the Favorite button and double-tap on it. There will be no indication of having subscribed to the podcast, but you can verify this by going to the favorites tab. See below.

Final notes:

  • You may have encountered the “Sign In” option within this app. If so, it’s a good idea to create an account, as it will let you continue the playing of your podcasts on other devices and/or platforms. The free version of the app has ads, but you can remove them by opting for the premium service.
