Public Radio Exchange (PRX), the popular online distribution marketplace of public radio, has recently launched its apps for its popular public radio remixing service called PRX Remix for both Android and iOS devices. PRX Remix Radio App for Android Devices makes the PRX Remix program stream easily accessible to android devices. PRX Remix program stream is a continuous stream of selected programs on broadcast on public radio, podcasters, and independent producers.
The app has one of best UIs seen on any radio app for Android devices till date. A single tap on the play icon located at the bottom of the app’s homescreen starts playing the audio stream. Details of the program that is currently being played are displayed above the play button and the past listening history takes the remaining space of the App’s homescreen. You can move to the next program or go back to the previous one by tapping on the previous and next icons seen on either sides of the play icon.
Stories you like can be shared with others through multiple means like Bluetooth, Email and social networks like Facebook and Google +. People with whom you share the app need not have the app to listen the shared content. They can listen it on PRX Remix’s web address: http://prx.mx. If continuous internet access is an issue for you, then you can download up to an hour of content and listen it offline. This feature also helps you to download content on your cheaper home WiFi networks and save on the expensive 3G/4G data charges. The app’s settings let you to reset your personal data like listening history and preferences, system sync settings, and network settings for pre-downloading of stories (only on WiFi, both WiFi and cellular networks, and never).
The app works without any hiccups and the audio clarity is very good. PRX claims that some of the programs available on PRX Remix are not available anywhere else. PRX Remix can be excellent companion during your morning drives to office or in your weekend long drives.
