Creativity Hacks: How to Stay Inspired

featured

Sometimes ideas pour in like rain during a monsoon, while other times they lazily snooze, making us feel anxious. Everyone whose work depends on a continuous stream of fresh ideas is acquainted with these creativity ripples. Surely, there must be a way to take in inspiration and feel more productive, but how?

They say that success is 10% talent and 90% hard work. If that’s true, then could creativity be 10% luck and 90% your efforts? Creativity finds us, while we do things. To keep on going, it’s essential to stay inspired and motivated on a daily basis. Both high and low inspiration levels are based on certain lifestyles and habits. Some may be very individual, but others are quite generic and not difficult to achieve. 

We’ve marked 7 hacks for boosting creativity. Will you agree or disagree with them? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Untitled-3-1

As you may know, at Spreaker we are huge fans of extreme automation. Actually, it goes beyond that: automation is essential to our existence. It’s the only way we can handle our operations efficiently while continuing to deliver features and services to our users, even with a small engineering team. This was one of the big reasons we had to be early cloud adopters, moving our entire infrastructure to AWS early on.

3 Easy Steps for Submitting Your RSS Feed to iTunes

2
itunesrss1

One of the reasons why podcasts are so hyped and popular these days is that once they’re online, you can share them everywhere and through any platform or device. This means that once you’ve published the newest episode of your podcast, thanks to your RSS feed, you’ll be able to get it automatically shared on every platform or network you’ve set it on, including iTunes, which is still one of the largest web services for listening to podcasts.

An RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication), which is set up like a URL, sends regularly updated or changing content from say a blog or a podcast, to other web services. A “podcast feed URL” is a document which contains all of your show’s information, and if you want to submit a podcast to iTunes, you’ll need to have it hosted on a website that is able to generate its RSS feed. The way it works is that every time an update is made to your podcast, the RSS feed gets automatically updated as well. Then, whoever is subscribed to your podcast’s RSS feed will be automatically notified that there’s new content. If you’ve submitted it to iTunes, or any other podcatchers that accepted RSS feed submissions, it will show up there, too.

What if you don’t have a website set up for generating RSS feeds? Well, no problem: you can set up your podcast on Spreaker, and it will automatically generate the RSS feed for you. In fact, we give you the ability to share both your Show and Profile RSS feeds. To do so, here are the three steps you need to follow:

How to Start Coding on Android If You’re an iGuy

2-1

If you care about users enjoying your service from their mobile devices, then you should ask yourself: is it enough or necessary to make an amazing responsive website to answer their needs? Probably not. So you go ahead and build a great iOS app version of the website. But is that enough?

Well, not exactly, since there are currently more Android than iOS devices out there in the world, so it’s much more sensible to release an Android app even before creating one for iOS. All this summarizes the main reasons why I decided that I needed to learn how to build an Android app. Plus it forced me work from a different perspective, allowing me to grow my knowledge as a developer so much that I decided to apply what I learned back to our iOS development.

And so, the journey begins

What gets an app featured on Google Play?

get-your-app-featured

Spreaker launched in 2010 as a product available only on the web, used mainly on desktop computers. But with the subsequent rise in popularity of smartphones and tablets, users wanted to also enjoy a similar experience on their mobile devices.

We released our official Spreaker Android app in September 2013, allowing our users to listen to their favorite podcasts, enjoy live streaming, and even create their own live and pre-recorded content. This has been a great source of feedback from our existing users as well as new ones.

As time passed, we realized that having one single app for both listeners and producers was actually an obstacle in giving a great experience for these two very different types of users. So in September 2014 Spreaker Studio for Android was born: a brand new app totally focused on content creators where you can broadcast live or record your episodes. Its interface allows you to mix voice, audio tracks, and multiple sound effects, as well as access statistics and manage shows and episodes.

How did getting featured actually happen?
