TuneWiki SMP brings Internet radio, YouTube music videos & more to the N900
One of the pieces of software that has me hopping back to my Nexus One rather than sticking just with the Nokia N900 is Slacker streaming radio. We didn’t have anything like this on the N900, until I read this post on The Nokia Blog talking about the new version of TuneWiki SMP now available for FREE in the Ovi Store on the N900. You may already have the TuneWiki widget that shows you the lyrics from songs you have loaded and play on your device, but this new application also lets you play Internet radio and watch music videos with lyrics. Just to clarify, we did have Internet Radio in the Media Player application (I should use this more), but this new TuneWiki client adds more functionality to the experience.
While Internet radio is not as good as a dedicated application like Slacker, it is nice to see some added functionality for free. The TuneWiki application seems to have some slick functionality like searching YouTube for music videos of what you are playing, seeing what others around you are playing using Google Maps and your GPS receiver, and more. Check out The Nokia Blog post for details on the application while I go and download it to my N900 and try it out right now.
