UK Radioplayer launches tablet apps

  • UK Radio in one state-of-the-art player, for iPad and Android tablets
  • Discover live and catch-up radio, connect with Facebook for recommendations
  • One-touch series-linking, ‘now-playing’ info, powerful search, EPG-style browsing

All In Media has developed new iOS and Android tablet apps for Radioplayer, the UK radio industry’s collaborative listening platform.

The tablet apps feature a ‘dynamic dashboard’ of live and catch-up radio, with real-time music information to tempt users into journeys of discovery. They include a powerful radio-recommendation engine, matching users with radio based on their musical tastes, their previous listening, their location, and what’s trending.

A tap on any item plays it instantly – and once a user’s listening, they can see visuals from each station, such as artist images, branding, and Facebook pages. Once a user has found a station, the ‘More’ button opens an EPG-style panel, which can be scrolled forwards or backwards in time, to reveal schedule information and catch-up programmes. You can save and share your Favourite stations with one tap.
And, for the first time ever, Radioplayer is introducing ‘series-linking’ for catch-up programmes. With one tap you can save not only a single episode, but an entire series, automatically ‘stacked’ in your Favourites column for future listening.

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.

The tablet apps, tailored specifically to iOS and Android platforms, join the Radioplayer mobile apps, launched a year ago, and the desktop Radioplayer, which rolled out in 2011.
