London (July 3, 2014)�The UK''s Absolute Radio has published the 7th generation of its mobile app, according to thedrum.com. The newest version is �optimized'' for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. One of the new features is �on-stream ad functionality'' which allows users that have registered to receive advertising that is relevant to their age, demographic, and location. The trade-off is more music in place of irrelevant ads.
The new version of the player incorporates an in-car DAB mode that �allows drivers to choose stations and tag content without taking their eyes off the road'' according to the same article.
Other functionality includes a �timeline'' mode which restricts songs to those you''ve already heard; a �night mode'' with built-in timer; AirPlay for streaming to compatible speakers; and, a radio Alarm Clock which goes off playing one of Absolute''s seven stations.
