Music addicts who like to listen to their favorite radio stations on their mobile have something to cheer about. Sprint is bringing an interactive radio app called as "NextRadio" exclusively to the HTC One and HTC EVO 4G LTE.
Streaming the music from the internet can considerably reduce the charge in the battery leaving the music lovers with little choice but go in for phones with a better battery or listen to music on the phone sparingly. With the new app on HTC, fans no longer need to compromise on that.
The new HTC phones come with a built in FM tuner giving the users an alternative to streaming. The NextRadio app, according to the news release by Sprint, will consume three times less battery compared to streaming the music. Streaming is currently the standard being used by other music apps in the market.

Users can send feedback to the station they are listening to instantly via text or call. The app displays the details of the songs playing like name of the album et al and allows the user to share songs. The users can also buy the song right from their phone.
