iHeartRadio Adds Greater Media Radio Stations

Clear Channel Radio, the leading media company in America, and Greater Media, a premiere privately held broadcasting company, announced today that Greater Media’s 22 radio stations will be available on the iHeartRadio digital radio platform, offering Greater Media’s listeners more choice and an enhanced digital listening experience.

Under the agreement, Greater Media’s 22 AM and FM radio stations in Boston, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Detroit and New Jersey will be available on the iHeartRadio platform beginning April 2012. iHeartRadio is Clear Channel Radio’s free, industry-leading digital radio service that offers more than 800 broadcast and digital-only radio stations from 150 cities plus the ability to create custom radio stations, delivering listeners everything they want all in one fully integrated service.

“Adding Greater Media to iHeartRadio only improves our leading digital destination for consumers, expanding their ability to find the best and most complete online radio experience anywhere,” said John Hogan, President and CEO of Clear Channel Radio. “Clear Channel Radio and Greater Media understand that radio connects local businesses to consumers like no other medium can, and this agreement offers more choices for our listeners which is what they want.”

“We are thrilled to be able to provide our listeners with even greater access to our stations, anywhere they may be listening throughout the country, with this exciting platform,” said Greater Media Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Peter H. Smyth.

iHeartRadio is available to consumers through the Web, mobile devices and automobiles. It is the number one free broadcast radio app on the iPhone and Android. There have been 47 million downloads of iHeartRadio mobile apps.


Want to Punch Tim Tebow?

You can if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and you download this new free app.

It's called Punch Tebow, and you can do just that.  Just punch, tap or touch the screen where you want to hit the Bronco's starting QB and he will react accordingly.

See Tebow before and then after he gets punched.

If you hit him at the right angle, his head will snap back.

I dished out more abuse on the former Heisman Trophy winner in one session than the Steelers defense did in their entire playoff game yesterday.

It's mindless, it's fun, it's a waste of time.  But it's pretty cool.


Google Releases iOS App for Gmail, then Pulls It

It's only taken four years, but Google finally got around to releasing a native Gmail app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.  Then it got pulled from the App Store.

The new app is fast, looks nice, and adds a number of features that you don’t get with the web app.  But there apparently is a security flaw.

The Gmail app supports push notifications and audio alerts — or at least it’s supposed to.  It also allows you to autocomplete addresses by grabbing contacts from your local address book as well as your Gmail account.

The Gmail app includes touch-based gestures including the ability to refresh your inbox by pulling down on the screen. You can swipe from left-ro-right on the screen to navigate through your folders and

Priority Inbox settings. You can also now attach images to an email message.

When you use the Gmail app on an iPad, there’s a split-pane view that lets you get a good view of your what you are reading or writing.

We'll have to see exacly why it was pulled and what changes make take place.


Garageband Now Available for iPhone and iPod Touch

Apple today announced that GarageBand, its breakthrough music creation app, is now available for iPhone and iPod touch users. Introduced earlier this year on iPad, GarageBand uses Apple's revolutionary Multi-Touch interface to make it easy for anyone to create and record their own songs, even if they've never played an instrument before.

"GarageBand on iPad has been a big hit and we think customers will love using it on their iPhone or iPod touch," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "The innovative Multi-Touch interface combined with Smart Instruments makes it easy to create great sounding music, even if you've never studied music or played an instrument before."

GarageBand features a collection of fun Touch Instruments that sound great and make it easy for beginners or experienced musicians to play and record keyboards, guitars, drums and basses in a wide variety of styles. Smart Instruments now allow you to choose from an extensive new library of custom chords so you can play and strum along with your favorite songs.

You can plug your electric guitar into iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to play and record through classic amps and stompbox effects, or record your voice or any acoustic sound using the built-in microphone. GarageBand allows you to record and mix up to eight tracks and then share your finished song with friends or send it to your Mac(R) to keep working on it in GarageBand or Logic Pro.

GarageBand 1.1 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is available on the App Store for $4.99 (US) to new users, or as a free update for existing GarageBand for iPad customers. GarageBand is a universal app that runs on iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch (3rd & 4th generation models.)
