    Is it possible to make an FM tuner app and use the headphones as an antenna, like the Nano? I don't understand why an FM tuner was never added to the iPhone ...

    That's not true at all. There is 1. a trasmitter built in and 2. the headphones are an anntena as well.

    Interrupt cell service maybe? There are internet radio apps out there. You have music on your phone. You have Youtube. Is thee really a need for an FM tuner?

    I read somewhere that to use the FM Tuner somebody needs to know the key to access it and nobody knows what the key is.

    1) Uses data. I don't have unlimited
    2) Not live and non-stop music
    3) Uses a sh*tload of battery
    Music
    1) Listened to many times
    2) Maybe I wanna discover new songs

    What? The headphones have their own in them, so even if the one in the iPod Touch can't be used, why can I not use my headphones?

    Would it be possible to port the radio app from an iPod Nano with Radio, and make it for iPod Touch?
