A joint venture has been formed between NEW YORK CITY's UPRISE WORKS and ASHLAND, OR's MOZAIK MEDIA to develop dynamic mobile applications. They have entered the market with a Radio iPHONE Application service, which includes basic features such as a branded station icon, customized and branded station home screen, streaming audio with on/off and volume control, placement in the iPHONE store and usage statistics.
The option of adding custom features such as podcast and video archives, social network contests, ticket giveaways, and more are pushing the boundaries found on current iPHONE Apps. UPRISE WORKS is managing all sales and marketing as MOZAIK MEDIA is building out the technology.
"We have some creative madmen and women on our team that are bursting with new ideas that are going to push the boundaries we have seen so far with mobile technology", said UPRISE WORKS Founder/CEO FABIAN ALSULTANY,
Spearheading the radio initiative is former PUTUMAYO WORLD MUSIC Dir./Radio ANGELA HUFFSTUTLER. "Every radio station in the world is looking to build their audience, engage their listener, hold their attention with unique content and keep their listeners informed about what is relevant to them," she said. "We have built a platform where users can download their favorite station app for free, listen live anytime and interact with the host and even other listeners if a live chat is incorporated into the app. The station can update their content regularly to keep it fresh. We are expanding the platform regularly, it's an exciting time for radio and music as this technology is only limited to our imagination,"
