Cridland Praises NextRadio App
Sep 11, 2013 - Radio Futurologist James Cridland gave the NextRadio App a good review in a recent blog entry. Some excerpts:
■ "NextRadio works with selected phones, and will be pre-installed on the Sprint network in the US. Screenshots of the app show a nice electronic program guide, now-playing information, ways to interact with the station by simply pressing a button, and full-color now-playing information.
■ "The NextRadio app uses FM to receive the signal, which saves consumer batteries and data, and saves US radio stations their extra music licensing bills for online streams. The additional information comes over the Internet.
■ "If this sounds familiar, it ought to - it's hybrid radio. Indeed, the visual component is powered by RadioDNS, so I'm told: and if you have one of the supported phones, the app will apparently work in the UK, as far as visuals are concerned. Just tune into a supported radio station (Capital, Absolute, Heart or Classic should work) and the visuals will pop up alongside the FM signal."
With Cridland's blog, it's always interesting to read the comments as well.
