• There are thousands of radio apps available to smartphone users
worldwide. The majority of these, however, lack one or more
features that are essential to consumer satisfaction. These features
are often looked over because companies hire developers that have
little to no experience with radio app design and implementation.
The best way to ensure that you've developed the radio apps
possible that includes user-friendly features is to customize one
that's already been built by a reputable development company.
In order to make your app the best radio app available, make sure
to include the following features:
Stations and Genres
• The best radio apps feature a large variety of music genres for the
user to listen to. Each genre should also have multiple stations to
choose from, offering every listener a maximum amount of choices.
If your radio app is genre specific or broadcasts talk shows and
news radio, try broadcasting a variety of local stations.
Pause and Play Features
• It is essential that you include a pause and play feature with your
radio app. Listeners often need to pause their music to answer the
phone, complete other tasks or speak to other people.
This feature should allow listeners to pause the music and pick up
again right where they left off.
• This feature should be an obvious inclusion in every radio app.
Make sure the user has the ability to create a list of his or her
favorite stations. They can use this list to easily access their favorite
genres of music without having to spend a considerable amount of
time searching through the entire list of stations.
A Search Feature
• The search feature is an essential part of every
smartphone radio apps features.
Users should be able to easily search through the entire app to find
the station or genre of their choice. Search parameters should
include station, genre, location, artist and song title.
Song Download Capability
Often times, listeners may not be able to connect to the internet.
This can cause disruption to their radio service.
The best radio apps maintain an extensive database of songs right
on the user's smartphone. When they are unable to access their
favorite stations due to lack of an internet connection, they can pull
up their favorite songs right on their smartphone.
• This unique feature will allow you to retain a large amount of users
while attracting new ones who use substandard apps that constantly
crash or don't work due to lack of an internet connection.
To reduce your chances of offering consumers a substandard radio
app, consult with a company such as Onseeker that offers
customized iPhone and Android radio applications for affordable
