Using the Talk Radio application is easy - users simply select the host they wish to listen to. With a simple click, Talk Radio uses the iPhone's Core Location technology and a proprietary algorithm to present a list of radio stations and program air times in the users area. A manual search option allows users to find exactly what they want no matter where they are.
Talk Radio tracks program including Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura, Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, Glenn Beck and other popular hosts on both AM and FM frequencies. Additional hosts are being added regularly and users are encouraged to submit requests online. Designed to take advantage of the iPhone location and network capabilities, Talk Radio learns from users who report coverage, corrections, or changes and transmits that information to everyone with the application automatically. Left wing, right wing, or just wanting to hear the latest gossip, every radio listener will want this application.
Version 2.0 also adds the ability to listen live to many of the stations via audio stream on the iPhone. Product manager David Kyle stated "This was our most requested feature so we asked our developers to rush development. What they created is exciting."
Currently Talk Radio works well within the United States but, as a "learning application", collects information from our listeners who report in. International entries in our database are growing quickly.
