Bloemfontein – OFM, inspiring listeners to live the real good life in Central South Africa, is now offering a live streaming service through our OFM desktop app that will allow listeners to listen to OFM on their computer anytime of the day.

The OFM desktop app makes it easy for listeners to stay tuned to their favourite station, without having to click their way through the Internet. Desktop application means any software that can be installed on a single computer (laptop or a desktop) and used to perform specific tasks. There are also many benefits to using this desktop application for listeners such as:

Security; web applications are exposed to more security risks than desktop applications. You can have a total control over the standalone applications and protect it from various vulnerabilities.

Connectivity - web application development relies significantly on Internet connectivity and speed. Absence of Internet or its poor connectivity can cause performance issues with web applications. Desktop applications are standalone in nature and hence do not face any hindrances resulting from Internet connectivity.

Says Lindiwe Mtwentula, OFM Marketing Manager: “The OFM desktop app is no different to any web-based application and has numerous benefits. It’s easy to maintain, has a low security risk and because it’s a standalone application, Internet connectivity should not be an issue. OFM is now literally at your fingertips!”
