TuneIn radio on Symbian



I contacted TuneIn asking if would be making a Symbian app. The following is the answer I got.

"Hello Henrik

Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. The Symbian app has been made already, but we are waiting for them to release an OS that can handle TuneIn and other media rich apps.


Sincerely,

Derek
TuneIn"


Does anybody know what that means exactly. Were they waiting for Anna? Are they waiting for Belle? Why is Symbian the only OS that doesn't support TuneIn?

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

 I'm not sure but it sounds like a fob off to me. Symbian is already capable of internet radio streaming with the Nokia internet radio app. There is also the Aupeo range of internet radio apps as well as some others.

 I have the tune in app on my Samsung but I generally prefer to use the Nokia internet radio on my N8. Tunein's OK, but doesn't really offer me anything over the Nokia one.

 

 

Cheers.

I asked the same question a few months ago, and then they said it would come out soon,

there is an app, but it doesn't work on my N8, the station lists all load but if you try to listen it says:" download error, due to Qt bug or service may not be available in your area" (I am in the USA), also tunein has  a webpage for  nokia:

Hello and thanks for inquiring about TuneIn for Nokia.

 

TuneIn for Nokia is, in fact, written, but is waiting for a necessary update for Qt Mobility that implements Network Configuration parameters for the audio player.  We released the application quite a few months ago and people were having problems with the music player's (QMediaPlayer) access point not being set correctly which caused an error that the station wasn't available to be thrown.  We tried to work through the problem with various hacks and extensive backend coding but nothing would work as it was supposed to so we decided it was in everybody's best interest to pull the app from the Ovi Store until these issues could be resolved by Nokia.  

 

The Nokia Internet Radio application is a native Symbian-only application.  Because it is a native Symbian application, it can set the correct access point for audio.  This feature has finally been implemented in Qt Mobility as of 1.2 http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.2/qmediaplayer.html which is not yet available for Smart Installer installs.

 

In order to reach more devices (and future devices) such as the Meego and Maemo platforms, we chose to create our application in Qt.   We worked with the Nokia team directly to make sure that the QMediaPlayer in Qt Mobility gained important functionality that will help a lot of other media applications out in the end and strengthen the platform.  It's just taking a bit longer for Nokia to push the update out than we expected.  We hope you understand and we greatly appreciate your continued enthusiasm for our product.

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

I agree - Tune In 2.2 for IPOD is awesome and look forward to hearing it on my N8. 

 

This life of waiting wasnt what  I anticipated with Nokia.

 

Heck I don't even have Anna yet because I live in Canada (why not just us give us Belle right away)

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

Nokia Internet Radio is not a bad stab, but Tunein on Ipod/iPhone has set the Standard of what Internet radio is...

 

Like many people we gave up listening to Internet radio as the buffering the delays, the searching, pasting URLS and all this saga was just hard work.

 

Tunein has location based Internet sations, search by genre, language locations what ever else. The paid version can record, you can rewind, and typically what is best is to be rewnd and listen to music 5 or 10 minutes behind "Real time" so you can fast foward and you can automatilcally buffer is there is network problems without distruption the the music play.

 

Whilst the Free version of Tunein is good, don't even waste your time with it, get the paid version, it is some of the best money you will spend..... start recording and building your own library of favourite shows and stations and listen to them when you want.....

 

Please make the paid version of Tunein a priority....

 

Also see if you can beat Nokia on power consumption as I find Nokia Internet radio the most battery hungry app I use.

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

I got a reply from Nokia regarding Tunein.

 

Doesn't look hopefull as the letter seemed like a generic FOAD letter instructing me to check the Nokia Store regularily.

 

I strongly disagree with one of the prior posters that Tunein offers nother above the standard Nokia Internet Radio application.

Typo in previous msg.  That should have been "I strongly disagree with the prior poster that Tunein offers nothing above the standard Nokia Internet Radio application"

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

Since Tunein isn't available, try Grab Radio.  Not as good as Tunein, but vastly better than Nokia's.

Just tried Grab radio. They have many stations that are interesting to me. However none of them can be connected.

Re: TuneIn radio on Symbian

I sent an email to tunein;

 

Hello,

 

Thanks for contacting us. Since Nokia is abandoning the Symbian app for Windows soon, we are not actively developing for Symbian as we already have a Windows app.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Kyle
