Innovative Technology that Connects Broadcasters and Listeners by Phone
With mobile phone penetration approaching 3 Billion active users worldwide and almost 300 million in the US, mobile phones are the leading tool for users to communicate and access information. Although a limited number of mobile phones use data services to access audio content off the Internet, audio broadcasters and podcasters have been almost completely absent in reaching the mobile phone masses. Despite significant use of voice services on mobile phones throughout the world, few users access audio content (audio streams, podcasts, etc) from the internet on their phones. The reason is that data services are expensive, require more costly mobile devices, and coverage is spotty and unreliable.
AudioNow bridges the gap between ANY mobile phone and audio content broadcasters on the Internet. The company's proprietary protected technology is the product of years of research and design. Our systems convert virtually any audio format available on the Internet and streams that connect to the AudioNow gateway server which then relays that stream to any phone listener. Our patent pending intelligent audio conversion engine has unique logic built in to recognize multiple audio formats as well as the ability to constantly update location of content on the internet. In addition to the backend technology, AudioNow's user interface is a study in "simplified complexity". The user has the ability to select from hundreds of thousands of online audio content sources and create his or her personalized radio station and podcast list and customized IVR menus. Together, AudioNow's backend technology and user interface combine to create a mobile listening experience that is not only inexpensive and reliable for broadcasters and listeners but easy and fun to use. AudioNow's technology truly makes audio mobile for anyone with a phone.
