Clear Channel Radio's "I Heart Radio" Debuts Android App

Another example of how your mobile phone is now your radio, music, and all around entertainment source

Following the success of its BlackBerry and iPhone apps, Clear Channel Radio's IHeartRadio is rolling out a parallel app for smartphones with the new Android mobile operating system distributed by Google.

Android users can find the app for IHeartRadio, a multiplatform digital content emporium that allows users to access streaming audio from about 400 Clear Channel Radio stations, online at the Android store or the IHeartRadio Web site.

The free app requires users to have Android 1.5 or any subsequent version of the operating system; it is compatible with a variety of models, including the Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Eris and MyTouch, and Samsung's Moment. Currently, Google estimates there are 18 name-brand phone models using Android.

In addition to the roughly 400 audio streams from Clear Channel stations, IHeartRadio also gives users access to a number of digital-only Clear Channel properties, such as eRockster, Pride, Christina Aguilera Radio, Eagles Radio and the White House Brief. It also supplies entry to a variety of on-demand audio and video content.

In October, Clear Channel introduced daily video-on-demand service to its IHeartRadio app for iPhones. The rollout of mobile video content followed high adoption rates for the app among iPhone and BlackBerry users. In the first two weeks of availability in April of this year, BlackBerry users downloaded the app over a quarter million times, making it the second-most-popular application offered by BlackBerry at that time.

Around the same time, it was the third-most-popular music download app at the Apple App store, following Pandora and Shazam.

Good question, especially when full length streaming content from Comcast will be available to mobile devices very soon.
