December 24, 2013 at 3:52 AM (PT)
The folks at NEXTRADIO have posted their last blog update of 2013 -- "a year that saw the introduction of the NEXTRADIO product to the marketplace and witnessed an extraordinary collaboration of industries to make it happen."
• Over 95,000 app downloads
• Over 5,700 FM radio stations tuned to from the app
• Over 53,000 hours of listening through NEXTRADIO
• A 4.3/5.0 GOOGLE PLAY STORE user rating
The app wraps up the year with an award. "We made the venerable DAVID POGUE’s list of 'the most amazing, incredible, deliriously exciting tech ideas of 2013.' What makes this award really special, besides the fact that it’s coming from a very well respected columnist and getting our name in front of his gajillions of readers, is that it’s an acknowledgement from outside of our industry that broadcast radio is actively participating in its own evolution. When others read his POGIE list, it may give them pause to see an FM radio innovation making the roster, but it’s where we need to be, and where we’re glad to be."
“…Music that consumes no data, with only one-third the battery drain: That’s a really big deal,” POGUE says in his write-up.
