In an attempt to build on its growing user base, UK Internet radio service Radioplayer has launched a completely redesigned and tablet-optimized version of its mobile app. Radioplayer is a joint venture between the BBC, Global Radio, Guardian Media Group, Absolute Radio and the RadioCentre.
Available on iOS and Android platforms featuring One-touch series-linking and EPG-style browsing — a ‘dynamic dashboard’ of live and catch-up radio, with real-time music information.
Michael Hill, Radioplayer Managing Director said: “Our aim was simple – we wanted to build the best tablet radio in the world, to showcase the best stations in the world. With Radioplayer, the UK is leading the way on collaborative innovation, and we’re proud to be part of an exciting digital growth story for radio.”
