New local radio app launched.

A new app that allows users to listen to all their favorite broadcast radio stations on a mobile device, SwipeRadio, was launched last week. According to tech-industry trade TechCrunch, “When first launched, SwipeRadio asks to access your location in order to show you popular stations in your local area. You can then tap on any of these to immediately start listening and add the station to your favorites. From then on, you simply tap the screen to start or stop the station’s live stream, or you can flip through your favorite stations by swiping to the right or left on your phone’s screen.”
