Oct 16, 2013 - Interesting news from the NextRadio and TagDtation Blog: There have been 40,000 downloads of the NextRadio app, with an 84 percent retention rate. 4,000 different radio stations have been tuned in so far.

At the NYMRAD event held mid October, Sprint VP of Product Development David Owens said, "Every device we launch will include the NextRadio app. Tens of millions of [Sprint] smartphones will be preloaded with the NextRadio app."

According to the blog, "The latest device release from Sprint was the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 last Friday. This was the first true NextRadio smartphone launch because the HTC One and EVO 4G LTE had already been in the marketplace before the app was released. It caused a marked jump in downloads, getting thousands of new activations in the first weekend of launch. In fact, there were twice as many device activations in the week following the Note 3′s launch than the week prior."
