What is Blast-FM?

Blast-FM is an internet radio community for everyone, so you can listen to your favorite stations around the world and blast your friends messages at the same time..

Using Blast-FM

  • First, you can simply go to the main page, log in using your username and password, and then you can start writing your blasts!.

  • If the admin has enabled it, you can also update from your Jabber account through a Jabber bot.

  • Or you can also update from your mobile with the mobile adapted site. If you have an iPhone or an iPod touch, you will see a nicer interface adapted to your fingers

  • If you have a Wordpress blog, you can use WP2Jisko, an application that writes a note in Blast-FM when a new post is published.

To reply to one of your buddies status', you must first type @ symbol, then the username of the person who you are going to reply to, and then the message. Example: @johndoe hey!.
