ALL ACCESS hears that Internet streaming audio company ACCURADIO has released an application for the PALM PRE cell phone. The app is available to PRE owners in the U.S. and CANADA.
The app allows PRE users to hear ACCURADIO's over 430 channels while using the phone for other purposes at the same time, taking advantage of the PALM WebOS multitasking capabilities. The streams are also customizable. ACCURADIO programming options include over 50 channels of jazz, 45 of classical music, 35 of Broadway, 30 of indie rock, 25 channels of country, 25 of pop standards, 10 of world music, and multiple channels of reggae, Celtic, classic hip-hop, French pop, and more.
"We chose PALM PRE for our first internally-developed custom mobile app because PALM's innovative webOS operating system is cutting-edge, well-crafted and has received numerous glowing reviews," noted ACCURADIO Founder and CEO KURT HANSON. "It is a perfect platform for the ACCURADIO model, which allows users to instantly launch any of its hundreds of professionally-programmed channels with the option to then customize it to their personal tastes."
"Wrapped in an elegant, easy-to-use interface, the reviews and comments about the ACCURADIO mobile download for the PALM PRE have been overwhelmingly positive," added ACCURADIO VP/Programming Paul Maloney.
"The promise of more great phones, like the recently-announced PIXI, only add to webOS's appeal," said ACCURADIO VP/Technology RALPH SLEDGE.
