[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Popular smartphone phone application, Talk Radio, will broadcast President Barack Obama's back to school message on Tuesday, September 8th at 12pm EDT. Talk Radio, which is available for both the iPhone and Android, will stream the audio portion of the address to their customers.
"The president's address has generated a lot of interest among our customers," said David Kyle, project manager for Talk Radio. "And they've expressed a desire to listen to the address, no matter where they might be on Tuesday."
In addition to streaming the president's message live, Talk Radio also streams popular talk radio hosts' programs. After the president's address, users can easily switch over to their favorite talk radio host to listen to instant commentary on the address.
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 built in GPS on the phone 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. By using Talk Radio listeners will never need to miss their favorite host or worry about being bored on the road again.
Talk Radio tracks programs including Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura, Sean Hannity, Thom Hartmann, Glenn Beck and other popular hosts on both AM and FM frequencies. Additional hosts are added regularly and users are encouraged to submit requests online. Designed to take advantage of smartphone location aware technology and network capabilities, Talk Radio learns from users who report coverage, corrections, or changes and transmits that information to all other users with the application automatically.
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.
