As of today, the Public Radio Tuner is the most downloaded free music app in the store. It’s currently three places in front of another awesome music app, Pandora. In fact, it’s the 18th most downloaded app, right behind some app called Facebook (and who has heard of them?)

So why the sudden climb? Well, outside of the obvious – that it fills a need of hundreds of thousands on public radio listeners who until now couldn’t listen to their favorite radio station when they were out of tower range – it’s because Public Radio Tuner is currently featured under “New and Noteworthy” in the App Store. There’s nothing like the 10x accelerator of a worthwhile app being featured in the app store to make a move toward the top!

Congratulations to the Tuner team and collaborators! This is well deserved!
