I listen to the radio in my car, but that’s about the only place I can listen these days. I don’t have a radio in my house anymore, and my iPhone doesn’t have a built-in radio. With the 8 Pin Lightning Compatible FM Radio for iPhones and iPads from Allputer, you can listen to the radio anywhere. And this is conventional, over-the-air radio, not internet radio, so you won’t be burning through your data plan. The unit has a push button to scan through stations, and it has an earphone jack so you can listen directly from the device. However, the radio is powered by your iOS device, so you’ll have to have it plugged in to listen. You can also download an app to control the unit, which might make it easier to tune in your favorite radio station. It’s compatible with the iPhone 5/5s/5c, the iPad 4 and iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display. It’s available in white for $27.35.
