Simultaneously Listen to Your Twitter Feed and Music With The Social Radio, Now Available for the Web, iOS, and Android

Launching This Week, The Social Radio Converts Social Streams Into Audio Thus Allowing Users to Multitask While Staying In-Tune With Their Twitter Timeline

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2012) - The Social Radio, an app that lets people listen to their Twitter Timeline mixed with their favorite music, is rocking into the social networking environment with the launch of its web app available this Thursday, September 6th. iOS and Android apps will also be updated.

Allowing users to actually listen to Twitter searches, lists, hashtags, and trending topics mixed with music, The Social Radio -- developed by three Argentine software engineers -- has been downloaded over 25,000 times in a few weeks across both the iOS and Android platforms in over 20 countries. The new web-app no longer requires an invitation and also boasts a renewed design that permits more attractive and simple in-app navigation. English, Spanish, Russian, German, Portuguese, Italian and French are all supported by the application.

The possibility of multitasking has been the key of The Social Radio's success by working on the phone's background so that users can use their device for other activities without leaving the app. Tweets are converted into male and female voices that vary intermittently thus providing a unique dynamism to the audio. Additionally, it lets users mix Twitter streams with their favorite music from online audio distribution platforms like SoundCloud, Pandora, Rdio, Spotify or from their own playlists.

"We've already proven the mobile success of The Social Radio especially for people who want to stay tuned to Twitter while running, driving, cycling, etc. With this launch, we look forward to attracting Twitter users who spend hours and hours in front of a PC -- they also need to live the experience of tuning-in to The Social Radio!" says CEO Roberto Gluck.

Gluck adds: "We also provide features like the 'Independent Bands Promotion' that we launched in June, which gives bands the possibility of reaching the crowd. It helps them promote their music within The Social Radio Web App."
