Radio Today is proud to announce the launch of our first smartphone app, enabling the industry to catch up with news and other content while on the move.
The free Radio Today UK app is available initially for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and is sponsored by RCS.
As well as being able to access the latest industry news stories, the app means you can also follow our live event coverage with text and photo updates straight to the palm of your hand.
That starts this evening for the 2011 Sony Radio Academy Awards, where we’ll be providing full live coverage from the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, direct to your iPhone wherever you may be!
Stuart Clarkson, Editor of RadioToday.co.uk, said: “After months in the planning, we’re so excited that our first app has finally gone live and is available to download for free. We’ve pulled together all the content we create into one place and made it really user friendly and so easy to navigate. We hope it helps you to, literally, get your hands on the latest industry stories and photos as soon as we publish them.”
The app brings together all of RadioToday.co.uk’s additional content – such as videos, podcasts, blogs and our weekly eRADIO newsletter.
You can access the latest industry job vacancies, powered by our friends at MediaUK, and there’s even a quiz to test your radio knowledge.
Radio Today founder Roy Martin, who’s built the app in-house, said: “Never mind the Sonys or the Arqivas… the top of the leaderboard in the Radio Today Quiz is what really matters from now on.”
You’re also able to contact us directly at the tap of a finger from the app – so you can email us your news or call us to tell us about a major announcement. You can send images from your iOS device straight to our newsdesk.
Radio Today UK is available now and is free to download (data roaming charges apply). We’ve been able to provide the app without charge through a sponsorship deal with leading broadcast software company RCS, who are also our main website sponsors.
Ben Hart, Managing Director of RCS UK, said: “RCS remains proud and committed to supporting Radio Today and embraces its gentle steps into new technologies and now apps!”
