AOL was recognized with an APPLE Design Award for the development of AOL RADIO for IPHONE. The AOL developed application was highlighted during the "iPhone Developer Showcase" portion of the annual awards ceremony last night at APPLE's Worldwide Developer Conference in SAN FRANCISCO and won the award for "Best Entertainment Application".
Built using APPLE’s Beta IPHONE Software Development Kit (SDK), the new application gives users immediate, free access to over 350 online radio stations, including 150 local CBS RADIO stations and custom channels plus more than 200 AOL RADIO channels.
"We’re thrilled to be recognized by APPLE for the work that has gone into AOL RADOP for the IPHONE," said AOL EVP KEVIN CONROY. "The API's available in the IPHONE SDK provided us with all the tools necessary to quickly create a terrific version of AOL RADIO for the IPHONE OS and we're looking forward to adding streaming radio to the many great experiences available to IPHONE users."
