Project Description: An iOS-App that calls in customizable intervals to play news segments previously selected by you. This allows us to interrupt other playback on the device and resume it after ending the call, regardless of the App providing the original audio stream. This method provides a customizable, adaptable way for radio producers to reach listeners who usually wouldn’t otherwise listen to radio but for instance stream their music from Spotify or YouTube. If a user does not want to hear news at the moment, he can simply reject the call and wait for the next one.
