WQXR Mobile App Poll

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

We are in the process of designing an application for mobile devices (iPhones, iPads, Droids, etc.) that will allow you to access WQXR and Q2 while on the go. We would like to get your input. What features would you most like to see on a WQXR app?

Please leave any additional comments and suggestions below.

We are just on the border of your broadcast in Monmouth Couthy NJ. Sometimes we get the station lound and clear and sometimes not at all. An ap would allow us to listen through our "iHome". Thank you.

Great question! I emailed listener services and they told me it had an anticipated "late fall 2010 release date". I can't wait. I'd like it to have both stations in separate tabs with integrated playlists.

My wish list would be that you would make more programming available "on-demand" like music streaming services so that those of us who work almost every available hour in the day can start a program fresh as our schedule permits.

I'd like to see WQXR come out with an app that challenges its competitors in features and functionality. Out of all available options, WQXR and Q2 has become my default music choice because of the intelligence, variety, and spirit of the programming and on-air personalities. You have an opportunity to become many listeners' premiere choice as a purveyor of all things good in taste. I think this will positively build your brand identity and increase your listenership and also monetary contributors.

Thanks for asking.

Never mind the mobile app, I want to hear WQXR on the radio again. Too many of us have been deprived since the regime change that downgraded the signal.

I voted for everything except for the social media stuff. Its becoming the biggest thing since the dot COM bubble burst, and right now we need to remind the other users of the Internet, that it's not important at all.

Besides I have already installed on my iPod Touch an app for listening the NPR and its pointed towards two stations WQXR of course, and one down south.

Yes , the app should also be for Blackberry! Believe it or not many of us in the business world assigned to communicating via Blackberry world also have an interst in the arts too!

One more HUGE request, please: a BlackBerry app, too!!! All mobile Gaul is divided into three parts -- Apple, Android, RIM -- not just two. Ask Caesar.

I voted streaming and playlist, first and second, but would stack up the whole list this way:

(1) Streaming the mighty Q2 live, 24-7, ad infinitum, amen.
(2) Playlist
(3) Social(media)ism
(4) On-air sked
(5) Music, gnus, features, and bloggery
(6) Show archives.

Holler when it's all ready to download. Keep up the good work.
