Stitcher Radio -- an app that streams a variety of radio shows, podcasts and live stations -- has been updated for iOS. Stitcher v6.1 offers the ability to connect one's recent-model Jaguar or Land Rover vehicle to the app, allowing control through the MySpin interface. Background updating, now included, means that new episodes of shows within a user's playlist can be automatically downloaded for offline listening. Additionally included in the update is better support for saving Front Page Headlines, enhancements and bug fixes. The Stitcher app is free to download, with a three-month subscription to the radio service priced at $6 as an in-app purchase.
Amazon's AmazonLocal iOS app debuted in the iOS App Store last week. The app allows users to locate deals and specials in their area and purchase them through Amazon. Users can redeem deals directly through their iPhones without printing vouchers, use the app for navigation assistance to find deals, directly contact participating merchants through the app, and share deals through Facebook, Twitter, email, and SMS. The app is available as a free download in the iTunes App Store. It is compatible with iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads running iOS 4.3 or later.
