Swell Radio is a new talk radio streaming app that promises to make finding and listening to news quicker and easier on your iPod or iPhone. The app works like Flipboard for news radio, allowing you to flip through various news clips from popular outlets such as NPR, ABC News and ESPN. The app's large buttons and swipe motions make it easy to use while exercising or performing other tasks.
Swell allows you to share your favorite clips with your Twitter followers or Facebook friends even if they don't have the app, and you can also bookmark your favorite clips so you can listen to them later. The app also features the ability to breakdown content by specific topics like News, Technology, Comedy and so on.
Swell Radio is free to download from the Apple App Store, and does not require a membership for premium content like Pandora or Spotify. It's compatible with the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad. It requires iOS 5 or later, and it is optimized for iPhone 5.
