KUPL Portland launches Droid App


Alpha Broadcasting’s KUPL has launched its latest mobile phone app, this time for the Droid, making it the first pure listen live app for that particular device.  KUPL listeners who are Droid users now have a way to take their favorite station on the go, with the ability to listen live, view song lyrics, see artist and album information, read reviews, watch videos, listen to station podcasts, hear samples of recently played songs and purchase music through Amazon.com.  The Droid app, like Alpha’s previously released iPhone and Blackberry apps are again free of charge, require no registration and are powered by AirKast.

“The previous apps were so well received and now we’re pleased to be first with Droid users, providing their own app for KUPL,” commented Scott Mahalick, Alpha Broadcasting’s Director of Music Programming.  “Droids are becoming increasingly popular and we want to make it as easy as possible for our listeners to take KUPL on the go, no matter what mobile device they are using.”
