On-demand news radio service, Stitcher Radio, dropped a nice update in the laps of Android and iOS users today. Starting today, Stitcher Radio will follow in the footsteps of services such as Pandora or iTunes Genius, by providing personalized recommendations based on your listening activity. This new feature has been dubbed “Smart Station” and claims to be a first for talk radio.
All of you news and podcast junkies should appreciate this latest update, which has already gone live for iOS but has yet to hit Android. iOS users will also be treated to a slew of new features, including:
- Sleep Timer – Set Stitcher to automatically stop playing after you nod off, our most requested feature!
- Lock Screen Album Art – Your listening experience is now more visual. See the currently playing show on your phone’s lock screen while you’re listening.
- Easier Sharing on Twitter – We’ve added pre-populated show descriptions and sources to make it easier to share your favorite shows.
Hopefully the update will drop in the Google Play Store soon, until then here’s the App Store link for all you iOS folk.
