Absolute launches live amp
As previewed at The Radio Festival in Nottingham last week, Absolute Radio has launched its Live Amp application for iPhone and iPod Touch users at a cost of 59p.
The app allows listeners to enjoy Absolute Radio as well as offering videos, photos and a live Twitter stream promoting gigs around the UK. It’s available to download at the iTunes App Store.
The station's original iPhone app, the iAmp, which connects to the online stream, currently attracts 25,000 "listening sessions" a week. It was downloaded 100,000 times during the original eight-day on-air push.
