AOL launches two new iPhone apps

Access internet radio and IM your friends

AOL has launched two new apps for Apple's iPhone that will allow users to listen to more than 26,000 internet radio stations and hold instant messaging conversations from their handsets.

The SHOUTcast Radio app lets users browse radio stations, which cover more than 30 genres of music and even offer talk, community and world programmes. Stations can be searched by name, stream quality or popularity. Alternatively, users can simply shake their iPhone or iPod touch to change radio stations.
