WICN Radio Station
Many radio stations use mobile applications as a way to expand their broadcast to listeners. The scope of this project included the assessment of the existing broadcasting streams and listeners of the Worcester Inter-Collegiate Network (WICN) radio station, including their Android OS mobile app. However, the data suggest that most of WICN’s listeners use iOS rather than Android devices.We developed a prototype of WICN’s existing Android mobile app for iOS, and surveyed feedback about the application from potential WICN listeners. In this report, we detail our procedures, which included an assessment of existing apps for radio stations and their strengths and weaknesses with regard to functionality for the broadcaster, and feature availability for the end user.
