jacAPPS, the smartphone application division of JACOBS MEDIA, has completed development of a radio application for the ANDROID platform. ANDROID -- created by GOOGLE -- is showing signs of rapid consumer acceptance and appears to be the second option for smartphone applications behind the APPLE platform.
"Our smartphone application division continues to expand at a rapid pace," said JACOBS MEDIA Pres. FRED JACOBS. "We've conquered the iPHONE space, with 140 apps in the store and more than two million downloads. The secret behind our success is that we create customized applications that draw upon our decades of experience in radio as consultants and researchers. We don't approach apps as a templated process. With ANDROID, we will continue to custom-design radio and personality-branded apps for this hot new platform."
The jacAPPS ANDROID application for radio will contain the same unique functions as the company's iPHONE apps -- the alarm clock, station-controlled revenue generation and messaging, embedded web browser, background play, social network connectivity, and much more. Additionally, jacAPPS continues to develop customized functionality based on client needs and marketing goals, including video, streaming news, on-demand assets, and more -- all of which will be now be available on the ANDROID platform.
