With the brand new Q100 Atlanta iPhone and iPod Touch free app now available at iTunes, Intel decided to road test it Friday morning.
The main (and perhaps only) reason to download the app?
The app enables listeners to access a live stream of Q100’s The Bert Show where ever you go.
Yes, through the miracle of modern technology, the fine folks at Seroya Mobile have found a way to fit Jeff Dauler‘s freakishly large noggin inside your pocket.
But oddly, on Friday morning, the live stream of the popular morning show on the iPhone app during a live remote from Filene’s Basement in Buckhead for the frenetic “Running of the Brides” promotion was on a 30-to 40-second delay from the radio broadcast.
Aside from the 24/7 Q100 broadcast, the app also offers photo galleries from station events such as “BitterBall” and tweets from the on air staff’s Twitter feeds. (on Friday, however, the tweets on app were decidedly dusty and didn’t sync with fresher, real-time tweets on the Q100 website).
The app also has a function that enables listeners to email song requests to the station and a link that will direct dial the request phone line for you.
The app’s iTunes page has a series of increasingly hilarious warnings for consumers considering the download, obviously aimed at the sometimes racy content on The Bert Show, including: “Infrequent/Mild Horror/Fear Themes,” “Frequent/Intense,” “Mature/Suggestive Themes,” “Infrequent/Mild Alcohol, Tobacco or Drug Use References” and “You must be at least 17 years old to download this game.”
But our fave warning iTunes provides for the radio show?
Infrequent/Mild Sexual Content or Nudity.”
Consider yourself warned.
