iHeartRadio Windows8

WINDOWS 8 HAS (i)HEART: New gear, meet new songs. iHeartRadio has launched a free app specifically for Microsoft’s much-ballyhooed new Windows 8 O/S. Available at the Windows Store, the app was developed in close collaboration with the tech giant to work seamlessly on a range of Windows 8 devices; it features a Sleep Timer function so you can set your favorite iHeart stations to shut off when you doze. (This last will be of particular interest to the editorial staff here at the Double.) Of course, iHeartRadio's 1,500+ broadcast and digital-only stations (and virtually infinite number of user-generated ones) can also be experienced online, on phones and tablets, in cars, via Xbox and through smart TVs.
