alOt Radio App Now Offers Over 50,000 Radio Stations Following Addition of 7,000 New Channels

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - alOt, a leading developer of apps for PCs, today announced the addition of 7,000 new radio stations available through its free radio app, which now offers access to more than 50,000 channels from across the world.

From classic rock to sports, and live talk radio to recorded special-interest programming, alOt has again built on the success of its PC radio app with access to new, popular radio programming.

alOt's user base of approximately 10 million can now find and listen to more of their favorite terrestrial and Internet radio stations from any PC or laptop with the unique functionality and controls the app provides -- in real time, without having to visit multiple websites and sign up for multiple services.

"Since we first introduced the alOt Radio App in 2010 it has quickly become one of the most popular apps in the alOt app marketplace," said Alex Vlasto, alOt's Vice President of Marketing and Communications. "With the additions announced today, we have built on our users' ability to discover more of their favorite radio programming, but we haven't taken away any of the familiar use and control functions that make this app so popular."

The alOt Radio app was launched in October 2010 to answer the growing demand for a simple way for anyone to search for, find, and listen to radio stations from across the globe. The design and functionality uniquely developed for this app offers an unparalleled way to not only search by keyword or genre, but to bookmark favorite stations in a convenient browser location. 

The alOt Radio App, which was a finalist for a 2011 MediaPost Appy Award, has quickly grown into one of the most popular music apps available in the alOt app marketplace. The app offers buttons for one-click access to an immediate list of a user's local radio stations as well as a search option for regional and international programming. The app offers quick navigation among music, talk, sports, news, featured special-interest content and more. Listening histories and favorite stations are conveniently stored for both streaming Internet and third-party hosted stations, either through bookmarking or by browsing a list of automatically stored, recently-viewed stations.

Using the alOt Radio App requires a download of the alOt Appbar, a free browser add-on that can be populated with a growing selection of PC apps available in the alOt app marketplace, including popular social networks apps from Facebook and eBuddy, games such as Plants vs. Zombies, utilities such as email notifiers, and shopping apps from eBay and Amazon.
