Spreaker 3.0

The company not only partnered with the nation’s leader in talk radio, Clear Channel and their industry-leading digital radio platform, iHeartRadio, but also shipped a major update for Android and prepared to ride the iOS 7 rush.

Spreaker announced today the release of its new Android app, Spreaker 3.0 in the wake of yet another milestone – attracting 2.5 million registered users.

The feat is celebrated by the release of an all-new, revamped app for the burgeoning Android operating system, which now boasts 60% of the market-share of all computing devices in circulation (tablets, smartphones, and PCs combined) and runs on more than 80% of all smartphones.

According to a recent report by Forrester Research, consumers increasingly prefer audio streaming to downloading or collecting audio libraries. This new data further indicates that the amount of time people spend listening to new forms of audio continues to rise, and is driven largely by mobile usage.

Quote attributable to Francesco Baschieri, CEO and co-founder:

“Mobile is a key driver to new growth, so the team at Spreaker didn’t take much time off this past summer. Instead, the company not only partnered with the nation’s leader in talk radio, Clear Channel and their industry-leading digital radio platform, iHeartRadio, but also shipped a major update for Android and prepared to ride the iOS 7 rush. All the hard work has paid off as we witness our user base surging.”

The easy-to-use but elegant Web and mobile broadcasting tool enable audio creators to connect and stay connected with their fans in real-time. Now, budding radio stars using Spreaker on the Web and on mobile devices will be able to podcast their own shows and submit them for potential inclusion in iHeartRadio Talk’s official library from the biggest operating system found on billions of handsets found from around the globe.

Spreaker’s mobile and Web app enables anyone to broadcast live from anywhere in the world, which has led to some fascinating user-case scenarios, including citizen journalists from the Arab Spring uprisings who were left no choice but to use the platform to report live events as traditional media methods became censored.

In addition to on Android, the Spreaker App for iPhone and iPod Touch may be found here.

Spreaker DJ for iPad may be found here.
