Mobilize My70sRadio

In the 70s, we had Boom-boxes (ghetto-blasters, etc.)...

You could play your favorites cassette tapes, or radio stations.
The rule with boom-boxes back then: the bigger the better!


In the 80s and 90s, the only thing getting smaller were personal listening
devices: Enter the Walkman (both tape and disc)....

The new Millennium brought us mp3 players...
Image


By 2005, our phones and mp3 players were finally put together.

====================================
Now it's 2010 (and beyond)
Welcome to "the Cloud"!


Image

Cloud computing is where your data is stored out in the internet, like
My70sRadio. You've been listening to your music from "the cloud" while
at your desk, why not take it to the next level?

You can now stream music from your favorite 70s music station right to
your mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) and take us wherever you go:
workouts, on a walk, in the car, at your desk, in the conference room;
wherever your data-enabled device has a network connection!
And, if your device and your car have Bluetooth, you can listen to My70sRadio
over your car's sound system (or other Bluetooth enabled external speakers).

When we first started using our mobile devices for streaming our live radio
station, there were really complicated instructions for each different type
of device. No Longer!!
Image
Just go to TuneIn.com, install the app (if needed) and search for My70sRadio.
That's it! You can also find us at http://tunein.com/radio/My70sRadio-s111179

A much cooler streaming program for Android: xiialive
http://xiialive.com/

In addition to being easier on the eyes (colorful and bigger fonts than AoR has), it has a feature that I've been looking to do for quite a while now: Placing a "Favorite" as a shortcut on the phone's Home Screen (paid version only).

Image

One-Touch launching of My70sRadio is here!
Simply Search for My70sRadio, select the speed you want (I recommend the 40k stream), click the plus sign to add it to the Favorites list. Go out to the phone's home screen, find a blank spot for a shortcut and long-press the screen. Choose Shortcuts and select the "xiialive favorites" item, then pick the favorite from the list. Done!

NO-Touch Launching!!
Thought one-touch launching was cool? How about No Touch!
This program can be set to automatically launch when you activate a particular Bluetooth device. Now when I get in the car, the phone automatically launches the radio station as soon as it sees the Car's Bluetooth device (see my comments on the BTC8 earlier in this thread). You can set it to launch (and stop too!) for specific BT devices. I wouldn't want it to start the phone simply because I activated my BT Phone Headset, just the car.
Like some other programs out there, it can also be set to launch when you plug something into the headphone jack of the phone (not something I would do since I usually play something different when plugging in).




While xiialive's interface is much nicer to look at, you'll still get more info by going to the Now Playing Lite web page (and zoom in accordingly).
