Global Radio releases new radio apps for Android devices

Mar 2013  Radio News

The move follows the successful release of new iOS apps last year. Since introducing their first radio app in 2008, Global has seen close to 10 million downloads across all of its brands.

The enhanced apps were designed and engineered in house at Global and are available on two different interfaces – one for tablets such as the Google Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy Note, and the other for handheld devices such as the Galaxy S3 or HTC One.

Both have been engineered to play to the strengths of the device type they are being used on.

The apps’ new features include:

  • On air screen featuring artist photography and track information
  • 7 day schedule
  • Full list of music news with links to articles
  • Ability to listen to any station in the Global Radio portfolio
  • Rich visuals and the latest relevant content, linking directly to what’s playing on air
  • Enhanced streaming technology for long lasting radio listening
  • Social media integration

Users of the new Capital and Heart apps will soon be able to access the Capital and Heart TV channels, which both play non-stop music videos 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Global’s Founder & Executive President Ashley Tabor said: “Following the huge success of our new generation of iOS apps, we are delighted to be able to deliver an exciting new experience for our Android users. We’re hoping the enhanced apps will create a richer user experience, allowing users to engage with our brands even better than ever before!”
