Dallas - Sep 1, 2010 - RadioTime has acquired the TuneIn Internet radio iPhone application, the best-selling and highest-rated Internet radio application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. RadioTime has also hired Ben Alexander, the creator of the TuneIn application, to oversee the development of RadioTime's iPhone and future iPad applications for consumer and powered-by customers.

In less than a year, more than 700,000 iPhone and iPod Touch owners have purchased the $1.99 TuneIn app. TuneIn features the RadioTime directory of AM/FM and online-only radio stations airing in 140 countries and broadcasting in 55 different languages.
