    Nobex Radio Companion - new version

    Advertisement





    Hi,

    We have recently posted a new version of Nobex Radio Companion at www.nobexrc.com (Over-The-Air download to the BlackBerry). Nobex Radio Companion is a BlackBerry tool that helps you keep your music collection fresh.

    Ever heard a song on the radio and thought you’d like to have it on your iPod or MP3 player? Now you can: Nobex Radio Companion shows you what is playing on any radio station you listen to, and with a single click sends you the song details to your email, with a link to buy the song so you can add it to your collection. Saving you the "I heard a cool song, I wish I could remember what it was" moments...

    Download now - It's free! OTA download is from www.nobexrc.com.

    We would love to have you try it and hear your comments and suggestions on this thread.

    Thanks,

    The Nobex team

    still free

    well, it's still free...

    other than some minor bug fixes, the main improvements have to do with communication with our server- things get to the device faster, and the app goes idle with no communication after a little while (even if in the foreground). do you have the previous version?

    purchase music

    not yet. iTunes does not have a client for the BlackBerry, obviously. Companies like Puretacks have some solutions.

    Can I browse a list of stations in the list before I download it? Does it cover XM channels?

    browsing stations

    currently, the list of stations is included in the product itself only (dynamically received from our servers). we are working on a web-based version that will allow you to see the list too, but it's not out yet. the app is only 70K, so if you would - just instal it and see if you like it.

    Thanks,

    The Nobex team

    Nobex has updated.
    You can now stream some stations with Nobex Radio Companion.

    Here's the catch:

    "Over a hundred stations are now playable on your BlackBerry Smartphone. For a limited time, radio streaming is provided free of charge. It will be part of a monthly subscription service in the future."

    Ouch, just when you thought emulating an FM tuner was within grasp!!!!!

    Well congrats to Nobex for getting a bunch of money from RIM for the developer challenge. Monthly charge? Really?

    Regardless, check out the update for yourself down below...

    Two things I noticed with the new version...

    1. You can now see the entire stream loading process...which is much better than the previous version. No more wondering if it loading or not.


    2. Bluetooth support! It works with any bluetooth, stereo or mono.


    Too bad there will be a charge for this later...

    Is the latest version 2.1.0.130 ?

    And I want to thank you guys for your support, with the issues with her station and christian genre lol, she told me about all the emails back and forth and she now absolutely loves nobex as much as i do.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    It's been awhile since I used it, but I'm hoping there are more playable stations now!
