RADIOIO LAUNCHES MOBILE APP BUILT WITH MONTAGE STUDIO’S NEW HTML5 AUTHORING ENVIRONMENT
Innovative Development Platform and Tools Showcase Open Mobile Marketplace for Leading Music Streaming Service
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 5, 2014 – Montage Studio today announced the successful development of a cutting-edge multipurpose consumer and B2B mobile app that enables RadioIO to provide rapid streaming.
RadioIO and DigiPowers worked with Montage Studio to create the app from its authoring environment, opening a rapid path to RadioIO’s goals of sleek design and efficiency of development.
“RadioIO business customers and consumers expect flawless access to RadioIO’s hand-curated music channels regardless of their device preferences,” said Julia Miller, COO for RadioIO. “As a result of working with Montage Studio and its rich web-based development environment, we can deliver high quality music with a beautiful and streamlined user experience.”
Iterating Quickly to Deliver Superior User Experience
Designers and developers from Montage Studio, DigiPowers and RadioIO were able to iterate quickly as a team to deliver this complex application in less than 100 days from design to distribution.
Inspired by the design and philosophy of native platforms, Montage Studio pairs a modern, sophisticated, open-source HTML5 framework with a cloud-based interactive authoring environment. This innovation gives web designers and developers the freedom to iterate quickly together and craft powerful, future-proof applications intended to exceed user expectations.
“With RadioIO we found an ideal partner who understands both how critical user experience is to their customers as well as the benefits of a single code base. They trusted that Montage Studio’s powerful, easy to use, universal SDK would deliver both, and it did. Montage Studio delivered a great application on both iOS and Android,” said Benoit Marchant, Co-Founder and CEO of Montage Studio.
“The key is we created a development framework where 90 percent of our code base is consistent on iOS and Android, which saves time, money and delivers brand consistency no matter what the device,” said Rolf Kaiser, CTO of DigiPowers.
“It’s absolutely beautiful. I was expecting a lot—but this exceeds those expectations in every way,” added Mike Roe, RadioIO Founder.
