New TuneIn Premium Service Offers Unlimited Audiobooks, Over 600 Commercial-Free Music Stations, Live Coverage Of All MLB Games, And More For $8 A Month

You've probably heard of TuneIn. It's that app that some kids these days think of as the radio (not to be confused with the static that old people are still able to get their cars to produce). TuneIn lets you stream stations from all over the world, regardless of how far outside of their coverage area you may be.

Now the company is rolling out TuneIn Premium for $7.99 a month. For your money, you get access to over 40,000 audiobooks. You know, because paying for novels individually has apparently become old-school.

TuneIn Premium also comes with over 600 commercial-free music stations.

R.B.I. Baseball Returns For 2015 With A True Premium Game And Plenty Of Improvements

Baseball fans who recall more pixelated ages of gaming will remember R.B.I. Baseball as one of the more consistently good MLB franchises, and it's been revived for mobile platforms. Surprisingly, it's a true premium game - five bucks gets you the entire experience, complete with licensed teams, stadiums, and player likenesses, all without an in-app purchase in sight. It's an odd and happy thing to see come out of a pro sports license.

The 2015 edition of R.B.I. Baseball is more than just a roster update. This year's version includes 3D stadiums for each team that mirror their real-world counterparts, roster management in full simulation style or the 16-player lineup you may remember from the original games, "over 1000" pro ball players with accurately modeled statistics (and no BS leveling up), and the ability to save and resume full games.

I played one year of a baseball as a kid, and for a brief - very brief - period in my life, I imagined what it would be like to play on a Major League Baseball team.
