iHeartRadio Launches New Mobile App Features For Talk
September 9, 2013 at 7:37 AM (PT)
CCM+E has rolled out additional enhancements for the iHEARTRADIO Talk experience on iOS and ANDROID mobile apps. The updated apps will feature a directory for Talk that allows users the ability to browse and select from hundreds of programs. For the first time ever, segments from "The View" and "JIMMY KIMMEL Live" will be available to coincide with ABC's new season.
"Since launching in JULY, iHEARTRADIO Talk has already demonstrated that it's an important source of information for the on-the-go consumer, with 60% of Talk users accessing via their mobile devices -- and that has been with very limited mobile functionality," said CCM+E Pres./Digital BRIAN LAKAMP. "During beta, we have received a lot of feedback to make our Talk feature more accessible via mobile, and now we are able to provide that. Our users will also notice even more Talk functionality coming to our apps in the near future."
The mobile app update will also feature a more user-friendly side navigation pull-out screen with an easily accessible "presets" section for quick access to the listener's saved Live, Custom and Talk Station favorites. Additionally, users will be able to browse by category. The iOS mobile update is available TODAY for the iPHONE and iPOD, with ANDROID following on SEPT. 12th for phones and tablets, including the KINDLE.
