WICN is an NPR affiliated public jazz radio station located in Worcester, MA. Their Android phone application was not operating at full potential, and there were many reviews of the application which indicated that it required updating, especially in regards to its ability to play music. Both the project team and the staff of WICN noted that there were several features that could be added or improved upon in order to create a better application. The purpose of this project was to improve upon the app’s existing features, such as the music playing ability of the application, as well as new features decided upon by the WICN staff and project team.
