Apple working on radio app with iTunes support

While shipping new iPhone 3GS’ that can’t be jailbroken, Apple is also busy developing its own radio app for iPhone and iPod touch.

9to5Mac has it that the upcoming radio app should have the same functionality as the FM radio included in Apple’s new iPod nano (unveiled in September).

Apple also wants to integrate iTunes purchases into this radio app – allowing you to track down the songs you’re listening on your favorite radio station, and buy them via the iTunes Mobile store. Of course, for that to happen, you’ll have to be in the US and the radio station should support tagging.

Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when exactly the new iPhone radio app will be  ready for launch.
