Tivoli Audio has just released an iPhone app, Tivoli Radio, for listening to high quality radio stations chosen by the listeners of their popular audio equipment.
Tivoli Audio's first app, Tivoli Radio, includes an interface based on their most popular selling radio, the Model One table radio. Users can listen to a select number of stations from around the world that were the most popular stations among their customers. The app includes 10 genres with 10 stations in each of those genres. A "Tivoli's Favorites" category is also included.
Tivoli Audio is a multimedia speaker and hifi equipment manufacturer with a wide variety of products including table radios, iPod players, Hi-Fi Systems, portables, and accessories. Tivoli Audio aims to provide high quality audio equipment to consumers at affordable prices.
Tivoli Radio is a free app so it can't hurt to download it and take a look at the Tivoli Audio-curated list of free internet radio stations.
5by5, the digital network that purports itself to be for "geeks, designers, broadcasters, and entrepreneurs" has launched a new iOS app that lets listeners check out their various shows while on the go. Shows such as Mac Power Users, which is exactly what it says on the tin, and The Cocktail Napkin, a show about inspiration and the ideas that come from them are now streamable through the app. For those that want to listen to the shows as they record live, the app offers push notifications to find out when they start broadcasting. The app supports background audio, and supports AirPlay for playing shows on remote speakers. The episode also features a schedule of upcoming broadcasts, integration with the 5by5 newsletter, and the ability to see how many other people are listening live to the app. Note that it is not a universal app – at least not at the moment.
"Jelli is the future of radio." - Jaime Chaux – Austereo
I see a ton of music radio type apps come through my inbox every week, but none are nearly as ambitious as Jelli. Jelli is a crowdsourcing music platform that enables the listeners to really listen to what they want. Unlike most online-only platforms, Jelli is integrated into many radio stations across the country, from KITS-FM in San Francisco to WPST-FM in Philadelphia to provide an on air experience like no other. Listeners then can hop online and literally vote a song off the air... mid-play. As Jelli says, their product is true radio democracy.
Up until now, users of the system could only vote through their computers, leaving many people on the go without much of a say. To fix this, Jelly has launched the Jelli app which not only lets you listen to Jelli based community controlled playlists (consisting of music genre sections and no genre anarchy rooms) or any of the FM stations across the country that use the platform.
The app is a completely interactive app that lets you vote online for what comes next (much like iTunes DJ), and also lets you chime in as to whether the song that is playing "Sucks" or "Rocks." If the song fills up the suckitude quota, it is instantly yanked off the air and the next song will play. To get a song on the air, or to get a song out of the list to vote on, you use your social gaming type rockets and bombs. When a song that you rocket up gets selected, your "DJ" name gets announced and you earn points for more rockets to use in the future. Use your rockets and bombs wisely though, because you only get a limited amount.
Jelli is free to download and free to listen to, so hop on board this new wave of internet/broadcast radio... and don't pick any crappy songs.
