When I’m Mobile and Radio Paradise launch first-ever mobile internet radio website

New York, NY – July 31, 2009… Mobile web design and development concern When I’m Mobile, and leading internet radio station Radio Paradise, have joined together to launch Radio Paradise Mobile on July 6, 2009. The first internet radio station website designed for a mobile phone web browser, the site is fully optimized for all mobile devices. When I’m Mobile principle Jonathan Thaler says that “The Radio Paradise Mobile website is highly interactive and preserves almost all the functionality of the main website, enhancing and spreading Radio Paradise’s community focus”.

Radio Paradise Mobile is a groundbreaking accomplishment in mobile web design and internet radio. “You can’t expect people to navigate a site designed for a 19” computer monitor on a tiny Blackberry screen without getting very annoyed with someone — most likely the company whose site they’re looking at,” states Radio Paradise founder Bill Goldsmith. More inclusive and democratic than a mobile phone “app”, RadioParadise.com automatically detects which device is being used, whether it’s a computer, iPhone, Palm, Blackberry or any other web-enabled mobile device, and presents the appropriate version of the site. Users needn’t remember a second web address; the site is accessed and optimized using the same address as the main site.Once accessed, users are able to navigate easily to the same Radio Paradise stream as on their computers.Users are able to comment on and rate songs, view the live playlist, get more information about the music being played, post in the Radio Paradise forums, and can purchase the music playing on the station through Amazon.com directly from their device.With the launch of Radio Paradise Mobile, the station has become the biggest mobile portal to Amazon across any industry, with tens of thousands of click-through purchase links for users of the Radio Paradise mobile experience. The mobile website content is also seamlessly integrated into the Radio Paradise iPhone app, drawing content from the RP Mobile site to enhance the app’s performance.Explaining his decision to work with When I’m Mobile, Bill Goldsmith says that “Jonathan understands the intricacies of providing a good user experience on a wide variety of devices — probably better than anyone else in the field.”
