Simple Radio Now Available in 13 Languages

At Streema we’ve always had users from all over the world using our applications. A few years ago we added multiple languages to our website, and we felt that it was time to do the same for Simple Radio. As a mobile app with a lot of international usage, we felt Simple Radio needed to be more international, so we worked with people from several different countries to add great content and now we’ve added many more languages.

We initially had English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French, and now we’ve launched the following new languages on our Simple Radio app:

  • Italian
  • Hindi
  • Japanese
  • Malay
  • Korean
  • Chinese
  • Indonesian
  • Russian
  • German

We’re considering adding more languages so, as a Simple Radio user, which ones do you think we should add next?

Stay tuned!

10M Monthly Active Users on our Platform

Today we’re happy to share with you that Streema recently reached 10 Million Monthly Active Users! We never thought that ten million people would use our service in a single month, but here we are. 😄

It’s difficult to think how big a number 10 million is when referring to people, but given the time we live in and thanks to many products and services we rely on, it’s also great to share that it’s possible to make it happen with a small team like ours.

Streema’s user base has changed in many ways through the years. For a long time our product has been used by desktop users at Streema.com – however, today, of those 10 million, around 7 million are mobile between mobile web and our Simple Radio App in Android and iOS.

Simple Radio has been the main reason for that growth in the last few years. Our app has received positive reviews with an average of 4.4 stars in the Play Store and 4.5 in the App Store, making it one of the best rated music apps out there. To all our lovely users, THANK YOU!

Here we’ve highlighted some of the best reviews we’ve recently read out of the hundreds we receive every day:

1 year and 1M MAU on Android later

Simple Radio by Streema

Before the year came to an end, we wanted to take a little time with you to celebrate some of our milestones in this amazing 2015. 🙂

In particular, it has been an important year for us in mobile. We launched Simple Radio for Android in January and Simple Radio for Apple Watch in April. We also added Chromecast Support, to the delight of many of our users.

We wanted to make a special mention about our Android app: in less than 12 months we reached 1 million Monthly Active Users on that platform and its success led us to be featured on Google Play.

And finally, we have also been listening to you and working very hard to improve our product, a result of which is that Simple Radio now has a 4.4 rating out of 5 on Android and 4.5 over 5 on iOS.

We have big plans for 2016, so stay tuned.

Have a great holiday season. 🙂

Simple Radio Now Has 1M Monthly Active Users on Mobile

As you may have noticed, we’ve been very quiet at Streema – no big news announcements nor blog posts over the past few months. The truth is that it’s been a busy time here. We’ve been quietly working on a few different things, the most important being listening to your feedback and improving our Simple Radio application.

Well, we can say that the work is paying off: even though we launched Simple Radio less than a year ago – 11 months ago on October 27, 2014 to be exact – we’re proud to say that we recently hit the 1M MAU milestone. Even more importantly, those are happy users that have sent us thousands of happy messages as well as given us a 4.5 average rating across mobile platforms, making us one of the highest rated radio apps out there.

We’re still hard at work, since the work is never finished, but wanted to take a moment to share the good news. 

Thanks again for being part of our story. 🙂

2014 Highlights at Streema

2014 has been an exciting year at Streema. It flew by really fast and, before it ends, we wanted to share some of the highlights that made this year so special for us.

Simple Radio Launch: Probably our most important announcement was the Simple Radio launch, only in iOS for now. Android users, don’t despair, great news coming very very soon!

FIFA World Cup: We covered the 2014 World Cup with more than 10 blog posts and a customized event microsite, all of which generated some interesting results.

Streema.com Redesign: We started redesigning our entire site early this year, and one of the most challenging parts were the radio station profiles – in case you’re interested, here was the method behind the scenes.

Infographics: We also started developing infographics, to add a little quantitative research as well as color to our blog. Additionally, the first infographic we did for the World Cup was shared a lot around the web. So far we’ve done 4, and there are more coming. 🙂

Experiments: There were also projects we developed and experiments that we carried out, such as the map showing the location of radio listeners around the world.

And of course, there were also some initiatives we started a while ago but we didn’t announce until this year, such as “Everyone does Customer Support” and “Streema in Multiple Languages”.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the read.

Happy holidays and see you in 2015!

Our new iPhone app Simple Radio is finally here!

Hi!

Last week we said there was something new coming at Streema. After several months of hard work, we are proud to announce our new iPhone application: Simple Radio.

At Streema, we’ve been wanting to develop a mobile application for a long time. Additionally, it was the #1 most popular request we got from our users over the past few years. Finally, this year we made it happen!

When you first launch Simple Radio, you’ll notice that it’s super easy to use, comes with just the essentials and has a beautiful design. We wanted to create a pure radio experience, removing everything that could get in the way of you and your favorite radio stations. Just go to the App Store, install Simple Radio (it’s free!) and experience it for yourself. Once you have tried it, we would love to hear what you think of it: you can always email us at simple at streema.com.Also, if you want to make us really happy, go ahead and tweet about the launch and use the following link ( http://bit.ly/simpleradioapp ) to help drive others to download for free and enjoy.

The official press release can be found here.

Believe us when we say that this is a very exciting time for our company! Really looking forward to the world finding out about Simple Radio over the next few weeks. 🙂

Stay tuned!
