The new app also works with iHome’s “App-Enhanced” products to transform the units into an Internet radio for full range audio performance and a new level of alarm clock. Music fans can sync their favorite stations stored on iHome+Radio to iHome+Sleep, where the stations are then made available as Bedtime and Wakeup music options.

iHome+Radio also includes controls and settings for iHome’s app-enhanced product line, so customers of the iA5 and the upcoming iA100 will benefit from some of iHome’s exclusive innovations.
