Beta, Beta, Beta – New auto-play on start

Become a 1 Radio News Beta tester here (free) or for our Pro version.

  

With all the hype about Amazon Echo and Google Home, you’d think there are hundreds of millions of these devices out there. One of their top advertised features is the ability to play radio news headlines with a voice request. Hey, great idea!

Why wait for a special device? Why not use your smartphone with your voice instead right now?!

That’s the idea with our new “auto-play” upon opening feature.

Free listeners hear the PlayAll hourly news headlines automatically when they launch the app.

Pro listeners hear their personalised PlayMix favorites.

(Or, turn auto-play off and use the app like it usual.)

Add, the nifty, practically hidden option to launch apps on Android with your voice and you have an hands-free option to start the news when you need it. Just say:

OK Google, Launch 1 Radio News (Pro)

Depending upon your device settings, you may have to first unlock your phone or press the mic button in the Google Now search bar.

More Beta Notes

The most important goal with our current testing is to squash bugs.

As part of our direct engagement with the Google Play team (yes, they’ve discovered us and approved our free app for featuring), we installed code called Firebase which among other things will help us identify and squash bugs that might cause crashes across the 12,000+ devices that run Android.

If you read our reviews on Pro in particular, you’ll see we go back and forth with our dedicated users to improve this app trying our best to serve as many device/Android version combinations possible. That’s why we average a 4.6 or 4.7 rating.

However, we need your direct beta experience with the app to report those annoyances where the app doesn’t crash BUT doesn’t work as you would expect or as you would like.

By the way, with a previous release for Pro users, we added a sleep timer. Upgrade to Pro and fall asleep to 1 Radio News.

As we gear up for a crowdfunding drive to launch a major new 3.0 version of 1 Radio News on Android, we are planning one more high request 2.X feature – a more advanced audio player on Pro (and Free once we celebrate 100,000 downloads). Stay tuned.

As a “bootstrapped” effort (which means we don’t have investors and instead are paying for software development based on actual revenue – which is small, but consistent), we are hyper tuned to your feedback on what you want with the freshest radio news headlines and diverse global live news radio sources. Our goal remains to make the freshest radio news easy to access on-demand within the hour or day it is still relevant and new.

US Presidential election 2016 podcasts directory

podcastsforpresident  1 Radio News

Looking for deeper insights about the U.S. 2016 Presidential election?

After you listen to the fresh hourly radio news headlines via the 1 Radio News app, go in-depth with our special Podcasts for President collection.

Now through the November 2016 U.S. election, the free version of our news radio Android app will feature interesting on-demand election 2016 podcasts (typically with fresh episodes weekly) specifically about the race for President of the United States. (On iPhone? 1 Radio News is coming to iOS soon!)

The weekly (mostly) inside the Presidential campaign podcasts we are featuring thus far include (includes new additions):

As usual, our app features a unique combination of live news radio, hourly news on-demand with a unique Play All feature, and select news shows. When the campaign trail is hot, use our app many times a day.

What’s missing? We’d love to add a podcast with extended clips of candidate stump speeches updated daily or at least weekly. Tip us off.

In our addition to our collection, here are some other podcast recommendation lists:

At 1 Radio News, our app is all about fresh news. In addition to most of the podcasts recommended above, the top rated Pro version of our app has over 350+ carefully selected shows on-demand that are updated hourly, daily, or weekly.

EuropeDX YouTube review of 1 Radio News Pro – A 12 year-old 12 minute celebration of world radio

Forget that Lifehacker review we’d love to see, we’ve got Dean Denton with the EuropeDX video channel on YouTube is on the job with his review.

Imagine a world with millions of young people like Dean around the world listening to radio to build greater understanding across borders. Instead of just viewing young people as revenue sources for music services, how about seeing them as young minds who will shape our world. World news radio presents an amazing opportunity for empowering the mobile-first generation with knowledge and a counter to social media extremism we worry so much about.

Watch Dean’s review, then get the Pro app!

If you are on iPhone, add your email to our iOS pre-order list.

P.S. Here is a copy of my comment on his YouTube video:

Howdy Dean! I love the review. Folks can learn more about the app from: http://1radionews.com The newest Pro version (Android 3.0 and up) adds the most requested feature – favorites! You can sort them in your own PlayMix. I like to play a few hourly headlines on-demand and then have the app flow into a favorite live station. When I was about your age, my uncle gave me an old shortwave radio. I lived in a smallish city surrounded by river bluffs with very limited local broadcast choices. Then I strung wires all over the place and discovered that shortwave could bring me the world. It was amazing. This sparked a lifetime interest in understanding the wide world around me. While there are thousands of websites with global news and many often overhyping TV news networks, I was missing the more thoughtful and insightfully human voice of world radio. And as you noted, many classic shortwave stations are only on the web (although I sure do miss the amazing quality of Radio Netherlands programming) and as a DVR/Tivo guy, the skill of listening or watching something at a certain time is a lost art to me. So I built (with help and money) the 1 Radio News app. Your review of the Live stations was excellent and for those who like to discover stations, you still get that buzz when you listen to something surprising like a community talk show from a small Caribbean island live or the Voice of Mongolia on-demand. the BBC World Service is awesome, but there is soooo much more out there. With the iOS version (yes, it is taking time and is over budget), we are working on a better way to search and browse through the 350+ shows and podcasts I have carefully reviewed and selected. Those improvements will come to Android if it takes off on iOS revenue wise (ads, subscriptions, etc.). However, for a DXer, the hunting through the current list is a welcome adventure. 😉 Thanks, Steven Clift 1 Radio News P.S. My kids who are 9 and going on 11, loved watching your review with me. Time for me to get our my 2nd shortwave radio, an old Radio Shack model and let them have some fun.

Our mobile app’s Play All feature simply plays headlines one after the other from our top ten headlines list on the top and provides the top ten plus live streams below. On the Pro version, you can sort your favorites from scores of live news stations, world services/external services, and unique spoken word stations as well as on-demand hourly sources and the best 300+ daily and weekend radio shows in English that we’ve carefully selected from dozens of countries.

With app listeners from over 200 nations and major territories using 1 Radio News, our audience is very global. 35% of our Free version listeners are from the United States with South Korea, India, Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Thailand, Spain, and Nigeria rounding out our top ten countries in terms of frequent free app users.

Also, there are many radio news sources that haven’t woken up to the idea of sharing their hourly news headlines as full podcasts … here are our tips on reaching a wider audience on-demand with “hard” news radio not just niche programs or storytime.

Podcasts, smodcasts … give me today’s radio news on-demand

newflow_0

The other week our good friends at US-based National Public Radio shared a very interesting nugget from the NPR One app experience:

“… the presence of a local newscast is the ‘single biggest indicator that a user will return to NPR One,’ and NPR One can open up local stations to new audiences well beyond their geographic tower areas.”

That’s great. People love radio news … when it is fresh.

Do more. Local radio stations and state networks can do more to maximize their digital on-demand listener reach.

Some ideas:

  1. News matters, embrace it – Yeah, the hype about the next niche podcast is loud, but if you don’t prioritize getting your existing news into the on-demand ecology, your station is missing an opportunity to build your relevancy for today’s mobile/digital on-demand listeners.
  2. Headlines on your website – National broadcasters like Radio New Zealand do it right with their hourly bulletins right a top their news section. Your station might even place it on your website header next to your live stream. Appending various promotional audio after your headlines is a also great opportunity to promote future live programming, new podcasts, pledge drive messages, etc.
  3. Static MP3 file for your latest headlines – A number of top global new sources for years have updated a simple MP3 file – the BBC and others do this
  4. Podcast web feed for news headlines – While NPR, FOX and other national broadcasters do this, Minnesota Public Radio is one of the only local/regional stations we can find with a feed for their (often M-F daytime) hourly news . Yes, add your headlines to NPR One, but don’t lock yourself into one app. Make sure your headlines are accessible on your own app but also the wide podcast ecology
  5. Podcast web feed just for full news shows – There are a number of quality news sources like RTE from Ireland and other who either mix story by story items with full shows or just put out a list of stories. While it is OK to have by story feed, for your signature radio news magazine have a clean feed with just your full show. Forcing people to chose stories one at a time doesn’t let users “set it an forget it.” People just want to press play and do other stuff while they listen to your news not get their wet dish water hands on their phones to pick the next story in their podcast app to download. Offer more feeds for niche repeated programming rather than just mega feeds with multiple shows all bunched together. For example that RTE feed could also offer just a Sports News feed for example. ABC in Australia does something interesting with thematic by subject feed options as well.
  6. Get on iTunes – While you should never just display your iTunes feed on your site, getting each of your podcast feeds into iTunes will feed your directory content to whole of the podcasting ecology including to most Android users who use many different podcast apps that often offer iTunes powered searches
  7. Get in Stitcher, Google Play Podcasts, others – Take the time to submit your feeds to major podcasting directories. Don’t be so iTunes-centric. Most people are now on Android, just not media types and folks with money.

Send Us Your News Podcast Links

While there are a number of signature daily news shows from local US public radio stations/networks in our list of the top 350 radio news shows around the world (in our Pro app), we’d love to add more hourly and daily news headlines and shows from around the US public radio and beyond. Our new iOS version in development will also add a bunch of discovery features to help people find more news options by place. If you do #3 or #4 above (or already do), send us your details via email.

The best 300+ world radio news shows in English

Wow, we’ve built quite a playlist for world news radio with our 1 Radio News Pro app. Radio on-demand is best when served fresh – so we focus on hourly, daily, and weekly programs.

cropped-1radionewsproicon.png

Here are the best 350+ shows from 65+ countries all in English that you can play on-demand via our Pro app for Android.

This represents at 1,000+ hours of scouring the net for hard to find news radio on-demand from reputable sources and places you never imagined with at least some English language programming. Unlike iTunes and other often complex podcast apps cluttered with a gazillion old episodes sharing 100x more opinion than hard news, we simply play the latest fresh episodes on-demand from this hour, today, or this week. Radio on-demand is best when served fresh.

(The list is subject to change. In some cases you must listen via the web because they don’t have podcasts. Most are news mixed with a bit of entertainment, storytelling and top podcasts like our Presidential Podcasts. P.S. With our upcoming iOS release, we are introducing creative ways to browse and search these many offerings.)

Famous in South Korea – Learn English with 1 Radio News

south korea

We’ve noted with excitement that South Korea is often our number two country in terms of listeners behind the U.S.. India and Japan round out the top four.

Why?

Our radio news app was discovered by the English learning community in South Korea. Thanks to this blog post from Charlotte’s English we have many English learners using radio to improve their listening skills. Awesome.

Thanks Charlotte.

If you are a listener in South Korea, please let us know how you discovered 1 Radio News.

Also, South Korea has a number or international and domestic radio stations with English. We’ve added new on-demand shows to our Pro app. Get it.

4.8! 4.8! 4.8! 1 Radio News Pro is now the top rated radio app on Google Play

1 Radio News 4.8 Rating

As far as we can tell*, 1 Radio News Pro is among the top paid apps with over 1000 apps sold on Google Play. Today we crossed the 4.8 rating mark.

We are among the top rated radio and news apps in the Google Play history.

What are you missing? Buy 1 Radio News Pro today. Read the amazing user reviews, you won’t regret it!

If you want to try our free version first, go for it.

*It is not possible on Google Play to sort apps by rating and number of downloads, so please correct us if our analysis is off. By the way, if it wasn’t for a single one star rating from someone who simply didn’t swipe beyond the first 9 stations for 500+ more shows and stations, we’d be near a 4.9 rating. Of course having only 3 ratings of 3, 2, and 1 total is pretty insane after two+ years in Google Play.

AndroidCentral: 1 Radio News is an “app of the week”

androidcentralreview

Ara Wagoner, writer with AndroidCentral, says give your eyeballs a break and snack on news radio with 1 Radio News. We like that!

She writes:

“News never really stops, but I don’t always have time to read it with my eyeballs. Sometimes my eyeballs have had too much news (and other stuff) and they just need a break. Being able to snack on the headlines from news radio around the world is a boon …”

And finishes with:

“It also has a selection of live radio streams from around the world, which is invaluable during breaking news (especially breaking international news). 1 Radio News isn’t the most polished app (yet), but it saved me from going to fifty different websites and apps to pull down a five minute headlines clip, and I’m more than happy to support an app that saves me time and helps me be more informed than my producers. Especially as they ramp up their election coverage.”

Thanks Ara. We welcome all the new listeners joining the 1 Radio News listeners club thanks to your review. OK, it is not actually a club, but maybe it should be.

Get our Pro app here with the astoundingly popular PlayMix favorites feature, try our free version first or take the quick video tour. Looking for iOS? Coming soon.
