Pure Lounge app gets Android residency

Android users finally get their piece of the Pure Lounge pie, for radio listening on the move

If you've been impatiently waiting for those radio specialists over at Pure to allow its Pure Lounge app to take up residence in the Android Market, the wait is over.

For those not familiar with its features, Pure Lounge for Android enables you to listen to all manner of radio stations from a pool of 18,000 local, national and global radio stations on the move, in addition to podcasts, ambient Pure sounds and listen again content – an easy way of saving a favourite radio show and listening to it at your convenience. More excitedly though, the Android app will support Pure Music – Pure's Spotify-baiting cloud based music streaming service – which is due to launch any day now.

This means you can you access all your Pure Music playlists, and dig around the 15 million strong library of tracks for a £5 monthly subscription. With Pure adding caching to its list of features come January for offline listening on the move, its usability is on the cusp of getting a considerable boost. But you do have to pay a £10 monthly fee for the privilege. You can find out all you need to know about Pure Music here.

The Pure lounge app is available to download now, and best of all it won't cost you a penny.
