Jācapps Offers New Product To Support AM Radio

jācapps, the award-winning mobile strategy and development company, is moving to make sure AM stations can easily get their streams on smartphones, tablets, and into cars via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The jācapps Essential app is a simplified version of the company’s industry leading V5 mobile app platform for radio and podcasters.

In this new product, stations get a basic but branded mobile app with all the “essential” features needed for AM radio stations to remain vital and competitive in cars: a stream, a podcast feed, and, most importantly, support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, all rolled into a branded app. This new, low-cost product is being offered without a set-up fee, for just a low monthly maintenance fee all broadcasters can afford to ensure the app experience is as strong as possible as operating systems change.

“The big story in 2023 is the volatile state of the car dashboard, especially for AM broadcasters. jācapps has come up with a cost-effective solution for AM stations that need to remain competitive and vital,” said Fred Jacobs, jācapps’ co-founder and president of Jacobs Media.

The jācapps Essential app will help stations of any size put their content where their audience spends most of their time – on their iPhone or Android smartphone – while staking out real estate in the central venue for radio, the car dashboard.
