Earlier this summer, the “accessibility anywhere” people brought you exciting updates to our iBlink Radio app across multiple mobile devices, including iOS, Android and Amazon’s Kindle Fire product line. Our commitment to providing cross-platform access continues with the release of iBlink Radio, with the SAMNet Connect feature, for the Mac. Now you can access all your favorite blindness-related radio stations, podcasts, and local and national radio reading services either from your mobile device or your Mac computer. Additionally, if you’re a SAMNet subscriber, you can access all your news, entertainment, SAMNet forums, notes, media library and much more right from within the iBlink Radio app. The best part is that if you use iBlink Radio from multiple devices, your activity is synced across each device so you never lose your place.
