Welcome to the first step in creating your custom radio apps for iOS and Android. Here’s what is needed to get started:
1. Apple now requires the copyright holder (that’s you) to have your own Apple Developer account. You will need to enroll as an organization and complete the steps to get verified at https://developer.apple.com/programs/enroll/. You must enroll as an organization. The developer account costs $99 per year. The upside is that your app will be listed under your company name rather than ours.
2. If you want to show your current song or song history, you’ll need to supply a link to a xml, json or rss feed from your streaming provider or middlewear software. Check with your streaming provider first. For example Securenet Systems provides this from their Dashboard.
3. Preview of items we’ll ask you for:
- Name of app
- description for app store
- Stream URL
- Song history URL (xml, rss, json)
- Social media Links
- hirez logo
- Shout Out banner (options, we can help design)
- Shout Out sample mp3 (to play for listeners, optional)
- Colors (background, main, secondary)
- Podcast/On Demand RSS feed (optional)
- One Signal login/password (create free account at onesignal.com)
- 300×50 Ad Code (if you use your own adserver such as Google, etc.) You may use ours free of charge.
Now, to order your apps:
You’ll be charged a total of $2500 for your two apps. That covers Android and iOS. If you would like an Amazon Fire capable app, you can add one later for a $99 one-time fee. You may also add an Amazon Alexa Skill for just $99 one-time + an additional $10 per month. These are completely optional.
*Please note, if you need a multi-stream app for 2 or more stations inside a single app, please contact us for pricing.
Once you have completed your initial payment, you’ll be sent to our app ordering wizard to give us the details of your app. Apps can be published in as little as two weeks, but usually take about 30-45 days. If you are in a rush, we do offer a rush order for an additional fee. Due to work-load, delivery times without a rush fee are not guaranteed. Inquire before ordering if you have a hard deadline.
When your apps are built and approved, you’ll be asked to create a membership in our customer dashboard where you’ll be able to upload, store and schedule your apps pre-roll audio, advertising banners, custom backgrounds or anything else you have customized in your app. This service is $30 per month (which covers both apps) and is required for our service. Please note if you require a change to your app such as a new logo, wording change or other option that requires a new version, there is a $99 fee for each published version. You only encounter the $99 fee if you request a change to your app. Also not any new features added to the app are subject to a quote for additional work as well as the change fee.
