Listener Driven Radio Gruvr
Gruvr is a mobile app that transforms passive broadcast radio listening into a real-time, interactive experience fully integrated with social media. Station streams automatically start to play. Song clips, artist tweets, artist pictures, recommendations, are all fully licensed. Listeners get alerts by email, tweet or text message when their favorite songs are about to play. Track audience music tastes in real-time with analytics on voting, alert sign-ups, and other engagement around each song. Listeners record their voices in high quality and beam it right from their phones to the studio - then they get an alert before their voices are on air. Users share songs with their friends and dedicate songs through Facebook and Twitter. Reward people with badges for listening, using app features, or even showing up to remote broadcasts. Wake up with a custom greeting including today's weather, names of Facebook friends having birthdays, and station contest reminders - before automatically starting your station's stream.
