For fans of Leo Laporte's TWiT (This Week in Tech) network, the twit. am application is truly a lifesaver. It lets you listen to live TWiT audio almost anywhere.  The application runs on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and it works over WiFi, 3G, or even EDGE networks.  And, best of all, it's FREE and available via Apple's iTunes App Store.

As of this writing, the latest version of twit.am features an upgraded user interface (shown above).  The application allows you to see the TWiT broadcast schedule, and it also integrates live IRC chat so that you can interact with show cast members as well as the large crowd of other listners gathered in the chat room.  twit.am is a clear example of where new media is going. 

If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, twit.am is a must.  Of course, you'll also find that the TWiT network itself is a must for all of you looking to stay up to speed on the latest in tech. 

If you like twit.am, be sure to check into the IRC chat room and thank Houdini7.  He is the very capable author of twit.am, and we thank him for his efforts.
