RADIOTIME, INC. has acquired the TUNEIN INTERNET RADIO application for iPHONE and iPOD Touch and has also hired the app's developer, BEN ALEXANDER to oversee the development of RADIOTIME's iPHONE and future iPAD apps.
"I have realized the dream many independent apps developers share of having my app become a best-seller on iTUNES, which is very difficult considering there are more than 225,000 apps and counting available for the iPHONE, iPAD and iTouch (sic)," said ALEXANDER. "Partnering with RADIOTIME and being able to leverage its technology provided me with a significant advantage over the ever-growing number of Internet radio and streaming music apps, and I'm excited about the opportunity to join the company and work on bringing Internet radio to a wide variety of mobile, automotive and connected in-home media players, televisions and sound systems."
"An ever-growing number of our RADIOTIME.com users are now accessing Internet radio on their smart phones, using their headphones, connecting to a docking station and plugging into their car stereos," said RADIOTIME CEO BILL MOORE. "Adding the TUNEIN application to the lineup of our own and partners' mobile apps, along with the expertise BEN brings to our team, brings our customers and partners a significant competitive advantage."
