New App Lets Users Listent to Twitter Feeds
The Social Radio, an app that lets people listen to their Twitter Timeline mixed with their favorite music, is rocking into the social networking environment with the launch of its Web app. iPhone and Android apps will also be updated.
Allowing users to listen to Twitter searches, lists, hashtags, and trending topics mixed with music, The Social Radio has been downloaded more than 25,000 times in a few weeks across both the iOS and Android platforms in more than 20 countries. The new Web app no longer requires an invitation and also boasts a renewed design that permits more attractive and simple in-app navigation. English, Spanish, Russian, German, Portuguese, Italian and French are all supported by the application.
Tweets are converted into male and female voices that vary intermittently thus providing a unique dynamism to the audio. Additionally, it lets users mix Twitter streams with their favorite music from online audio distribution platforms like SoundCloud, Pandora, Rdio, or Spotify or from their own playlists.
"We've already proven the mobile success of The Social Radio, especially for people who want to stay tuned to Twitter while running, driving, cycling, etc. With this launch, we look forward to attracting Twitter users who spend hours and hours in front of a PC. They also need to live the experience of tuning in to The Social Radio!," said CEO Roberto Gluck in a statement."We also provide features that offer a more enjoyable experience, like the ‘Independent Bands Promotion' project that we launched in June, which gives independent bands the possibility of reaching the crowd. It helps them promote their music within The Social Radio Web App by modifying its background with the band's theme and links to their bio, discography and free downloads while, of course, playing their music."
Microblogging enhanced with audio could bring personality to posts.
