Technology is shrinking. We are moving into areas through mobile technology that would have been unenvisaged 20 years ago. Devices bring us together on the move and we share photos, music, film, like never before. The disruptive web radio technology, that is #KryKey, now brings web radio to your pocket, with the release of its eagerly anticipated mobile app. Having just purchased a new #IPhone, I decided to surf over to the Apple App Store and test out what KryKey’s app brings to the table. It’s nice and easy to get hold of this FREE app from the Apple App store… Just a quick search of ‘KryKey’ will list the Premium app for free download and installation time is fast. The app is pretty much streamlined and for the data it handles, works very efficiently. The app builds on the successful web-based platform of http://KryKey.com and brings web radio to your fingertips. The first noticeable thing about the KryKey app is the design. It is structured to look like a traditional radio, with easy to use dials, all app-subscribing radio stations being allocated their own digital frequency, with plenty of space available at present to allow for company growth. Obviously, listeners and app users will remember the frequencies of their favourite KryKey radio stations and be able to simply whirl the dial to quickly tap between shows, in the same manner in which one used to flick through a car radio. There’s an initial sign up to the app which requires a simple email address and some locational information, to tailor the app to your needs. This is non-essential though and the app will function anonymously, if required. You have the pre-mentioned dial, for simplicity, though for the first few uses of app, it might be more advisable to use the search features to get to know the network a bit better. The preset dials can be customised for easy browsing, like any standard, traditional radio. The search features allow radio stations to be navigated by various subdivisions: Music genre, Radio Name, City or wider, by country. The app is only available for broadcast for KryKey Premium stations, that pay the $30 or so monthly fee for the new service. KryKey used to have over 60000 personal radio stations and since the streamlining of the business, ahead of app release, most of the dross has been culled and only the…
Looking forward to tomorrow as I’m heading down to London for the Mobile App World 2011 conference.

The Official Wez G app for iphone / ipad and ipod touch is now LIVE and available for free download in the itunes store… http://tinyurl.com/wezgapp The app features all my DJ mixes since the podcasts began in January 2008, also a selection of my better production work. There is a twitter feed, also a WordPress blog newsfeed (where if you have the app you will be reading this article…lol) and a random tumblr feed for miscellaneous items. Also, a photo gallery and a Youtube channel of Wez G related music videos. I hope it keeps you entertained and that you help spread the word of Wez G to your friends by sharing the app… Your feedback as an app enduser on how it can improve will be much appreciated and welcomed.
Sennheiser MM50iP Stereo Headset Recommended Product – These headphones are reduced from £70 to only £22 at amazon in the UK at the moment… They are custom built for iphone but will work with any audio device with standard headphone socket… Sennheiser audio quality – these phones really make a difference – Sound quality is superb – You can’t fault the savings… They were as low as £14 when I purchased them – a £50 saving makes them a worthwhile investment… Grab a bargain while you can: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001FWYXF0/ref=oss_product
The Wez G iphone / ipod touch app launches next week and I’m getting excited… As a DJ you want your music to be heard and entering the app market will bring my music to a whole new audience as well as keeping current fans entertained… I’ve been looking at getting an app developed for a while… As an iphone user myself I am constantly downloading house music apps… I was particularly drawn to Graeme Park‘s app which was the first DJ app I got hold of… Graeme Park is a Hacienda legend and has been on the global house scene from day 1 (in Britain at least). He is a true acid house pioneer and whereas a lot of his contemporaries have waned in the digital age, through failing to adapt to new technologies, Graeme keeps building his following and getting his music heard… He is no acid house dinosaur and long may his reign at the top continue. Anyway – just wanted to say that Graeme’s app inspired me to contact his developer, a certain Laurie Laptop, an old-skool Hacienda guy… Laurie built my app with no hassle at all – and Wez G will be going into the Fanbass DJ app catalogue alongside such electronica greats as Derrick May, Mark Archer (Altern-8 etc) and Graeme Park… For non-iphone / ipod touch users, hopefully an android version of the Wez G app will be soon added. In the meantime, and if you are interested in an app yourself, check out http://fanbass.co.uk I’ll keep you posted on the much anticipated launch of the Wez G app and you will hear here the moment it goes live in the Apple store…
I have set up this wordpress blog for a number of reasons… Firstly there is a possibility that I will convert the main http://djwezg.com website over to a pure wordpress style layout… So I want to give it a good test. And secondly – I need a unique news feed for the new Wez G Iphone / Ipad app that will be released in mid May. This will be where news and content for the app comes from. There will be lots of other features also. There are also other sites that I use regularly to share information. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger and Podomatic all have their uses in today’s hi-tech digital world. All can be seen plus a lot more on the main website http://djwezg.com I shall endeavour to keep you posted with interesting items from the Perpetual World of Delight that is Shuffle…. Wez G
