New Internet Radio App Adds Social Connections

Techstination feature for Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Turning an iPhone into a socially connected global radio. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's a new Internet radio app....that will let you tune into radio stations and Internet only stations from all over the world....and it adds a bit of a twist. Terry Anderson is president of Handcast Media Labs....which is out with Spark Radio...for the iPhone...

"We've built in sort of a globe interface to the product. So as people from around the world connect to radio stations, you'll see them appear on the globe as well as every other listener to that station. You can go through and see what other people in the community are listening to. Go check out that person's profile. In an upcoming version, you'll actually be able to chat with those people."

Spark Radio is priced at 5 dollars 99 cents. The company is working on a version for Android based smartphones as well. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
