jacapps, a mobile strategy and development company, is moving to make sure AM stations can easily get their streams on smartphones and tablets into cars via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The jacapps Essential app is a simplified version of the company's V5 mobile app platform for radio and podcasters. In this new product, stations get a basic but branded mobile app with all the "essential" features needed for AM radio stations to remain vital and competitive in cars.

This includes a stream, a podcast feed, and, most importantly, support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, all rolled into a branded app. This new, low-cost product is being offered without a set-up fee, for a low monthly maintenance fee all broadcasters can afford to ensure the app experience is as strong as possible as operating systems change.

"The big story in 2023 is the volatile state of the car dashboard, especially for AM broadcasters. jacapps has come up with a cost-effective solution for AM stations that need to remain competitive and vital," said jacapps' Co-Founder and President of Jacobs Media Fred Jacobs.

"jacapps has always worked to provide the radio industry a best-in-class mobile solution that meets its unique needs and pushes it into the digital/mobile future," added jacapps COO Bob Kernen. "And in this uncertain time for AM stations, we are committed to providing broadcasters a cost-effective way to insure they're heard no matter what the auto industry does at a price point they can manage."
