FireRocker, new Chiaro Software's radio app, can record audio and play in background.

Chiaro Software announced today the availability of FireRocker, its new radio app for the iPhone and iPod touch. FireRocker came to replace our old radio app called Radio Tool X.

FireRocker comes with more than 1600 radio stations, a beautiful icon and interface made by the designer Sergio Bergocce. You can add new radio stations (and share it with other people if you want to). There's also the possibility to record audio, listen to audio in the background on supported devices and update the stations database without updating the app. Another cool FireRocker feature is playlist creation, where users can list their favorite radio stations.

Other minor new features include a track info log, possibility of bookmarking songs, a "Get song on iTunes" button, info about the track being played(artist name, song name and cover art), shake the device to pick a random station (can be disabled; there's also a button that does the same thing without having to shake the device) and sending recordings to an e-mail account.

The iPad version of FireRocker is waiting for approval and the Mac version is under development.

FireRocker costs just $0.99 on the App Store and requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or above. FireRocker came to replace Radio Tool X and it's free for all Radio Tool X users.
