Our team has had a lot of experience in developing streaming products and has shipped some of the first streaming music apps on the market.
We were looking for a way to get the reliability of a native app but still making it as affordable as possible to develop. That's why we settled on developing on Native React to easily launch both Android and iOS quickly, but still created a high quality app.
Obviously the streaming music apps all have great utility and we definitely took inspiration at how easy it is to find music to play. What is unique about 'Gimme Radio' is the community aspect, so we closely looked at the messaging apps like 'Line', 'WhatsApp', 'Facebook Messenger' and 'Snap' to determine how they tackle communication.
We launched the iOS version in November of 2017, and the Android version in January of 2018. We were working on the service for about 10 months before launching the mobile apps.
We focus on serving the consumer of music who has been forgotten by most streaming services, and our first app 'Gimme Radio', is hand-crafted for the fan of metal. Overall, we are trying to make it easier to be a fan. We do so by providing three unique aspects to the service: - A great radio experience: we choose DJs that can dig deep into the genre, pick music that maybe a fan has never heard before and tell the listeners why it’s important. What we hear from our listeners is that they’re discovering music more than they ever have in any other service. - We allow listeners and DJs to communicate while the music is playing. There are people from around the world that chat during the shows and that way become friends. - We try to provide the right offers to the users while they’re in the service. We sell vinyl, CDs and other band related merchandise, as well as 'Gimme' branded merch.
We’re the only app that allows listeners to go deep into their favorite genre. You can hear shows from some of the biggest artists in the metal genre, like Dave Mustaine of Megadeth and Randy Blythe from Lamb Of God. And 'Gimme' has become the place that listeners consider as their home.
We are planning our second genre launch for this spring. We are focusing Gimme Country on the fan of outlaw, Americana, alt-country and legends of country music to create a radio experience you can’t hear anywhere else.
Please download the 'Gimme Radio' app from the 'App Store' for your iOS or the 'Google Play Store' for your Android device today. And if you know someone who's into metal, please tell them about it.
