iheartradioThere are plenty of applications on Android Market for music nuts. Lots of them allow you to stream music and plenty allow you to download podcasts – like Google Listen – so you can tune in even without a data connection. But one thing missing from many Android phones is an FM transmitte, something that seems more prevalent abroad. But the folks at Clear Channel, who own more radio stations than you probably knew existed, want to make sure you get your radio on the go and they’re way of getting it to you is iheartradio.

While iheartradio has been available on the iPhone and BlackBerry for awhile, it was just recently made available for Android. All you need is a compatible device and a data or Wi-Fi connection. It’ll even stream over 3G which is pretty cool and an advantage over other apps.

And don’t forget about how many radio stations Clear Channel owns and operates. Wikipedia, which isn’t “official” by any means, says they currently run 900+ stations. They do a whole lot more than radio… but we’ll leave that discussion for another day.
