Bangalore based start-up Radiowalla has launched its Android and iPhone app. It has been designed by the in-house tech team.
The app for Radiowalla, a service that offers special interest internet radio channels for niche audiences worldwide, is now available across all Android and iPhone app stores.
“Radiowalla aims at giving consumers the idea of portability. We are all about carrying the music with you and the mobile is the place where all the future content delivery will end up. Thus, through the app we hope to offer users the choices that FM radio cannot give,” said Anil Srivatsa, Co-Founder and CEO, Radiowalla.
According to Srivatsa, a lot of users now consume content through mobiles and thus an app was essential at this point of time. Launched a week ago, the app has already seen almost 500 downloads.
The app has number of channels that specialise in different kinds of music. It has an entire series of free channels that users can tune into anytime. Users can also subscribe to their favorite channels on monthly, half yearly or yearly basis.
Specially designed apps for Java and Blackberry are in the pipeline.
Co-Founded by Harvinderjit Bhatia and Srivatsa, Radiowalla received undisclosed amount in Series A funding from Ojas Ventures Partners.
