Live365 Releases Multi-Platform Player Bringing Thousands of Curated Radio Stations to Computer Desktops
Foster City, CA (April 2012) - Live365, the world's most diverse internet radio and broadcasting network, announces the release of their multi-platform desktop radio player. Live365 Desktop works on both Macintosh and PC computer platforms and offers access to more than 5000 curated radio stations, delivering the same depth and diversity of content as the website in a smaller and easy-to-navigate desktop design.
Live365 Desktop is simple to install and allows users to add or access presets, rate tracks, get personalized station recommendations, search by music or talk genre, view track details, share with friends via social networks, create custom themes, and more. Live365 Desktop, which was modeled after the latest Live365 iPhone and Android mobile applications, was designed for easy navigation through thousands of stations in 260 genres of music and talk.
"We took the simplicity and ease of use of our popular Android and iPhone apps and brought it to the desktop," said Raymond Barrett, Director of Mobile and Devices at Live365. "We think users will especially enjoy mini-mode, which allows them to leave the player in the corner of their screen while working, always showing them what's currently playing."
Live365 Desktop is free to all VIP members, who receive thousands of commercial free stations as part of their VIP membership, and anyone who visits Live365.com can try it free by signing up for the VIP Free trial.
