Radiowalla Network’s mobile application has been ranked 13th in The Guardian’s 20 best Android applications. The application has been selected for its offerings in hand-picked selection of streaming stations in music, sports and talk genres. The application’s feature of providing on demand shows is mentioned too.
Other applications in the list include Pizza Express – an application that gives users an opportunity to book tables and pay for their bills at the end of the meal using PayPal. Via.me, White House, Quora, Telly, and Blue Badge Style, among others.
Anil Srivatsa, Co-Founder and CEO, Radiowalla said, “This is a very proud occasion for us, for the application was selected by their research and not through any release or marketing done by us. Through the Radiowalla application, we intend to go beyond the experience of listening to content and engage with the audience.”
He further said that this is the first version of the application and a lot more new technological features are yet to be added to it. The application has been designed by an in-house tech team and is currently available across Android and iPhone platforms.
“The application has picked up well in quite a short span, creating steady growth on the website, however, the growth is less than what we had expected,” added Srivatsa. He pointed out that the growth is interesting because it has seen this kind of development without any marketing. The application has been viral through research and word of mouth.
The Bangalore-based startup has seen significant increase in traction on the website and plans to enhance their network in 2013. The network plans an extensive marketing campaign to increase its visibility across platforms.
