DESIGN

Dark grey color for the SoundStorm Radio app is looking as the coolest and voguish style of design. Radios’ UI is ordinary and has four tab-screens. One of them it’s a radio with short track history list, and others it’s Facebook and Twitter pages of the app, and feedback. The main display is divided into the blocks for the convenience of users. So, a user can see what song is playing now, and what tracks were played before. Also, the play, stop, and volume control buttons are clearly visible.

Easy tap to switch between the tabs, scrolling makes smooth surf on the news feed.

TECHNOLOGY

When we have developed the app interface, we thought about useful details, that will make listening music more comfortable for users. Therefore, we used ShoutCast, IceCast, and CentovaCast. There are two main options for running a radio server and these are using an IceCast server or a ShoutCast server. CentovaCast makes it easy to configure your ShoutCast or IceCast stream. Also, we made Twitter and Facebook integration.

We have put a special widget in notification center, which makes access to the radio app fast, and allows to stop play button at any time. Also, we made player controls, endless MP3 stream player, e-mail feedback form, short track history.
