FlyCast, the popular streaming music app for the iPhone and iPod touch, will debut on the BlackBerry smartphone starting Nov. 1.
In case you haven’t tried out the service (available for free at Apple’s App Store on iTunes), FlyCast streams more than 1,000 online radio stations from around the world, divided into various genres such as hip-hop, rock, alternative, dance, R&B, country, reggae, classical, and so forth. Many of the stations offer commercial- and DJ-free broadcasts.
What’s more, a handful of these terrestrial and web-based stations also let you skip back to the beginning of the track or forward to the next one. You can also view album art, song title and artist name for each track. Talk radio is available as well, including news, weather, podcasts, “old time radio” drama and comedy episodes.
Today, FlyCast announced its app will be available for the BlackBerry Curve, Bold and Storm, offering the same line-up of music and talk stations as found in the iPhone and iPod touch versions. The Lancaster, Pa.-based company says its mobile broadcast network is the first of its kind to be available for BlackBerry smartphones.
BlackBerry users can download the app for free by visiting the FlyCast mobile website beginning November 1.
