If you've been dying to hear some Fab Four tunes emanating from your Apple iPod touch or iPhone then there's a workaround for you that's just been launched.

While the world waits for The Beatles back catalogue to go officially digital, a Beatles-themed internet radio station has launched an iPhone app that will see all tunes John, Paul, Ringo and George streamed to your handset.

The "Beatles-A-Rama!!!" iPhone app is described as a "portal to the world's greatest internet radio station: The Beatles and a whole lot more!"

The app is available now - but priced at £2.39 in the UK and $3.99 in the US - so you might just want to get those Beatles CDs ripped after all.
