RadioTime is an online resource for finding and listening to internet radio streams. You can do that through the RadioTime web site, using a web-based audio player. But RadioTime first came to my attention years ago because the company offered an excellent plugin for Windows Media Center which allowed you to access internet radio from a media PC using a remote control instead of a mouse and keyboard. RadioTime also has an app for Boxee, a cross-platform media center for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Now the company has launched a mobile app called TuneIn Radio, which brings the magic of RadioTime to Google Android. You don’t need a RadioTime account to use the free TuneIn Radio App. You can just search for radio stations by genre or location — one of RadioTime’s coolest features is that it can detect your location and find internet streams for local stations. You can also search for stations by location manually.

If you do have a RadioTime account, you can login and sync your presets, which means you can manage your presets from the RadioTime web site instead of your phone.

There are over 40,000 music, news, sports, and podcast channels available including streams available in the RadioTime directory.

TuneIn Radio is available as a free download from the Android Market.

Update: TuneIn appears to be a free, ad-supported version of the $1.99 RadioTime app which has been available in the market for a while. thanks VW!
