Streaming Radio iPhone App Development radioPup

Client: Townsquare Media, Inc located in New York City .

Problem: Townsquare Media is the 3rd largest owner of radio stations in the U.S. and owns and operates over 50+ stations in smaller markets. The company came to Blue Whale to develop the 1.0 version of the new radioPup iPhone app brand.

Solution: Blue Whale worked directly with the design team at Townsquare on best practices for mobile app UI/UX and developed an iPhone app that allowed users to stream any radio station and view related content such as photo galleries, videos and blog posts. The back end radio streams were provided by StreamTheWorld with Blue Whale working directly with their technical team to ensure that the correct bitrate for an audio stream was served up to the user based on their bandwidth.

Features: The radioPup app uses location services (GPS) to determine the closest radio station to the user as well as giving the user the ability to browse stations by city or alphabetically. Once a user is listening to a station, metadata from the stream is synched up with the iTunes API to show album art and buy buttons so a user can easily tap to purchase and download the song on iTunes. Integration with a Wordpress back end that displays related photo galleries, videos and blog posts was also implemented. In a follow up phase a weather API as integrated as well as the ability to customize the tab bar navigation.

Tools Used: Native app coding in Objective-C, push notifications, Crashalytics for crash reporting and Jira for bug tracking.

Total Development Time: Ongoing phases of development over a period of one year.
