RTI via Audioboo on your iPhone

AudioBoo tune into Radio Tatras International!

When you first start with AudioBoo, treat it the same as you would when you have a new radio fitted in your car. You know the new car radio will provide you with audio. However, you may need to make some changes to the factory settings to suit YOU.
AudioBoo is exactly the same as your older in-car system, you can listen to an amazing set of Boos as they pour into your iPhone. However, you can also personalise the application to suit you.

There are a number of ways to find your favourite shows, or Boos, using the AudioBoo iPhone app.
To find Boos local to you all you need to do is allow AudioBoo to input your location for you.
To activate this tap the small icon on the top right of the Screen and the drop down menu (right) will appear. Simply tap on NEARBY BOOS.
AudioBoo will then, with your permission, input your geographical location and then find Boos near to you.

The example shown on the left was taken in Poprad, Slovakia. Meaning our physical location was Poprad and AudioBoo found the Nearby Boos, in this case programming from Radio Tatras International.
However, you could do the same for anywhere from Lisbon to London, the choice is yours.
Returning to the image above, there are a number of other options for you to personalise your AudioBoo experience. Featured Boos are those chosen by AudioBoo for extra exposure, Popular Boos are those attracting many listeners, Recent Boos are shown in chronological order and there is a function called FOLLOWED BOOS.

W.W I read the blog about the real reasons why the station is closing. I'm totally shocked as to why this is allowed to happen in a democratic country. Very sorry and saddened.

L.B.: It's a tragedy, i was there on day one and have seen what Eric put in and lost for this dream. And he made it work. Then some people did him wrong for their own ends. Stand up and be counted for an hour ..

RTI Closure - It's a very sad day in the World of Radio

Michael Allen: It's a very sad day in the World of Radio. The loss of RTI not only upsets the listeners but also the many Presenters and Producers like myself who have worked tirelessly to produce programming for the station.
I am proud to be able to say that RTI gave me my huge break into real radio. Eric and the Team showed a lot of faith and belief in myself and my Motown Moments show when they agreed to air it on RTI back in 2007 which enabled me to make the leap from tiny radio to the mainstream.
Thank you Eric and to all involved in the RTI project I wish you well with all of your future endevours. RTI will be sorly missed!
With very best regards,
Michael "THE DiscoHound" Allen
Motown Moments & Hommage au Fromage.
