Fun Kids, the radio station for children under 10 and their families, has today launched a mobile App for Windows Phone 7. The release is the first of many mobile applications the digital radio station plans to release in the coming months.
The free App enables listeners to stream the radio station and comes complete with a beautiful high definition programme guide.
The app also provides the following features:
- Slick metro-styled electronic programme guide that allows you to see whatâ€™s on now and whatâ€™s coming up. The guide also shows how much of the current programme is left.
- Full support for the latest Windows Phone version (Mango) with multitasking audio playback.
- Direct links to the programmeâ€™s homepage on the Fun Kids website.
- Ability for the user to limit streaming to WiFi networks only.
- Beautiful artwork on application loading.
- Reminder facility for future scheduled programmes of interest to the user.
The App has been developed by Twickenham-based developers Igneous Software, who have already had significant success with their BBC Radio Player series of apps.
Matt Deegan, Station Manger of Fun Kids says â€œWeâ€™re always keen to let our listeners tune into Fun Kids on a myriad of different devices. With more and more phones now running Windows Phone 7, we though the time was right to produce this App.â€
Richard Castle from Igneous Software says â€œWeâ€™re delighted to be able to bring all the wonderful content from Fun Kids to Windows Phone. Weâ€™ve crafted an attractively designed user experience for all to enjoy.â€œ
Listeners can download the App for free from Windows Phone Marketplace.
