Playing Favorites with Spreaker Podcast Radio for iOS

0

We totally understand what it feels like to find a new favorite podcast.

You see an interesting title, the artwork looks great, and you think: sure, I’ll try listening to that! Ten minutes in, you’re completely hooked, and it takes you everything you’ve got to not binge on the entire season in one sitting.

And we totally understand that when you find a new favorite, you want to be able to listen to it at any given moment. That’s why we’ve just introduced a new Favorites section, as well as notifications about those favorites, to Spreaker Podcast Radio for iOS, so that you can always keep tabs on them. It’s a personalized element to your listening experience, and is another step closer to matching up our iOS experience to what’s currently available for Android.

Let’s take a look at how it’s done:

You’ve got it all under control – introducing Spreaker’s new Content Management System!

The Content Management System, or CMS, is a powerful new tool that makes general podcast and content management a cinch, so that you can make quick changes as needed. We’ve taken care of the tech so that podcasters can stick to what they do best: podcasting.

You’ll find it all there – the CMS is a full view of your operation and output at a glance. It’s chockfull of new features that allow you to do loads of things, like customize your embedded player, manage multiple episodes at once, adjust cover image sizes, and much more.

Updated: Show and Tell with Spreaker’s New Embedded Player

0

Don’t just tell listeners your story, show it to them, too!

Simply put, podcasting is storytelling via an audio medium. Not so simply put, podcasting is storytelling delivered via a number of various elements that also includes artwork, branding, and listening tools.

Now, with Spreaker’s newest embedded player, the marriage of all those elements comes together in one place, that’s efficient for you, as a producer, and convenient for your listeners. You can tell your story, and show it, too, with a full display of your episode or podcast artwork front and center, as well as a complete listing of your past podcast episodes. You’ll also be able to customize its size and color, and get to please your listeners’ eyes as well as their ears.

Why should I use the embedded player, again?

New Features on Spreaker Podcast Radio for iOS!

0

Not long ago we told you what’s going on with Spreaker’s apps, and how we’re working on matching the listening and podcasting experiences on our iOS apps with our Android counterparts. Well, this very week we’re rolling out two new and exciting features on Spreaker Podcast Radio. Take a look:

Find new curated lists with a freshened up Explore section

Easily discover new and popular podcasts by browsing through curated lists based on different topics like tech, traveling, and pop culture. While most of these lists were put together by Spreaker’s own editorial team, others are contributions from our partners and famous publications. Listen to recommendations by The New York Times, Forbes, Business Insider, and more.

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

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?

0

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?

How to Sync Skype with Spreaker Studio for Desktop

0

As every podcaster already knows, tackling a topic from different points of view is a sure way to bring the quality of his or her content to a higher level. However, having different points of view usually means more voices to manage, with co-hosts and guests weighing in on your discussion. It can’t be said enough that mastering an excellent podcast interview or steering a heated conversation already requires good speaking skills, experience, organization, and the right equipment.

So what happens when you’re not all in the same place? Maybe your co-host is live-streaming right from the location you’re covering (like a sports match), or you work remotely (like we do at Spreaker, by the way), or, more often than not, the expert that you want to interview can’t get to your studio. In that case, the best solution is to use Skype, and with Spreaker Studio for Desktop it’s very easy to set up.

What’s going on with our iOS apps

0

In the past few weeks we’ve been pushing out some new releases to our iOS Apps; some of you have reached out because they couldn’t find the statistics screen on the Spreaker Podcast Radio app anymore.

As of now, listener analytics are only displayed on Spreaker Studio and this means that if you are a content producer you should have already downloaded the Spreaker Studio App for iOS in order to access your stats. In a few months (we can’t reveal the date just yet) we’ll be launching a complete renewal of Spreaker Podcast Radio App for iOS which will give users a much better podcast listening experience, like we already did on Android.

Access Your Stats on iOS from the Spreaker Studio App

0

Yesterday we released a new update for Spreaker Podcast Radio for iOS that caused issues for a few users due to the fact that from now on, stats will only be displayed on Spreaker Studio.

What does this mean?

Actually, nothing has changed apart from the new path you’ll need to take in order to get to your data. You’ll still get complete access to all of your stats, of course, but now you’ll just have to open Spreaker Studio on your iOS device to get to it, instead of Spreaker Podcast Radio.
