History

On April 27, 2012, myTuner Radio v1.0 was launched for iOS on the AppStore.[13] This was the first version launched and the app was known as iTuner Radio [14] app, owned by Digital Minds,[15] a development company based in Coimbra, Portugal.[16]

The Version 3 of the iOS app, brought a new and improved design and new features, such as the most popular podcasts in each country. It was launched on August 26, 2013.[17]

During 2013, AppGeneration – Software Technologies, Lda acquired the software and started to change the brand’s vision of a single app development to a multi-platform directory of Internet radio stations.

These changes were visible during 2014: in January it was launched for Android [18] and in February it was rebranded as myTuner Radio and was launched to Mac OS X.[19] During this year it was launched on several other platforms, including Windows Phone and Windows Desktop.[5] The website mytuner-radio.com was also completely transformed from an institutional landing page, to a directory of streaming radio stations, where users can listen to radio stations, podcasts and music charts.

On April 23, 2015, during the launch of myTuner Radio for Apple Watch, AppGeneration announced that the platform reached 10 million users.[20] myTuner Radio was available for the Apple Watch since the first day the Apple Watch companion app for the iPhone became available. myTuner Radio also announced the tvOS app for the Apple TV, on the exact day the 4th generation Apple TV was released to the public, on October 30, 2015.[21]

Generally, myTuner Radio is available in two versions: a paid and a free version supported by ads. The free version for iOS (v.4.5), launched in April 16, 2016, featured for the first time in-app purchases to unlock ads. This version, named in the US AppStore as “myTuner Radio - Live Stations” was available for iOS 7.0 and above and was a universal app for iPhone and iPad. Plus, it also included an Apple TV version, as well as a companion Apple Watch App. In this version the app became available in 13 different languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Turkish and Arabic.[22]

On September 21, 2017 version 6 was released for both iOS and Android and it became available in 7 new languages: Danish, Dutch, Indonesian, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish and Thai.[22] Currently, myTuner is available on a total of 20 different languages and is used by 30 million people from all over the globe.[23]

On March 2018, it became available for Samsung & LG TVs,[24] Android TV (Sony, Sharp, Philips), set-top boxes (Mi Box, etc.), Amazon Fire TV, Alexa and Sonos.[25] On April, myTuner Radio added one more platform[26] to the list and became available on Roku.[27]
