In a world where so many are using iPhones and social networking, we wanted to make sure that our listeners always have a direct link to their favorite station no matter what technology is being utilized or where they are
Toccoa Falls, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
iPhone and iPod Touch users can now access Christian radio WRAF with a customized new app from Toccoa Falls Radio (http://www.myfavoritestation.net). This free app by WRAF is available for download in the iTunes store, allows users to listen to contemporary Christian music, as well as both traditional and southern gospel music. Subscribers will also be able to tune into the nation's top preachers and Bible teachers.
The new application allows listeners to access not only the live stream from WRAF-FM, but also their internet station, The Falls, which keeps old-time gospel music relevant for the internet age. "Our goal is to reach people wherever they are, which is increasingly on mobile platforms, with hope and encouragement," said Bryan Race, station manager for WRAF. "I'm also thrilled that both streams can run in the background while you use other apps or use other features on your iPhone." The stream also adjusts its quality based on the specific cell-phone or Wi-Fi bandwidth available.
Some of the features that separate this app from other radio station apps is that users can interact with WRAF through their blog, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channel. Christian Podcasts, a local events calendar, and an AudioNow (http://www.audionow.com) direct listen line are also available.
"In a world where so many are using iPhones and social networking, we wanted to make sure that our listeners always have a direct link to their favorite station no matter what technology is being utilized or where they are," noted Race. "The prospect of reaching new listeners is also very real. Around 50 million iPhones and iPod Touches have been sold to date and analysts project that number to top 100 million by the end of 2010." *
Sweb Apps (http://www.swebapps.com), a San Antonio based firm that specializes in professional and highly functional mobile applications for businesses and non-profit organizations, created the app for WRAF.
