Podcasting Tips

Keep Your Audience Engaged with a Mobile App

Podcasting has never been a one-sided affair – your content was made for an audience that could listen in and fully engage with it. Once you hit publish, your focus shifts from your own content to those out there waiting for you, and that includes reaching new listeners as well as those that have been there all along.

A customized Mobile App dedicated to your podcast is a great way to distribute your podcast out to listeners, get them hooked, and keep them coming back. While it’s important to spread your content through as many channels as possible, you don’t want your relationship with your audience to spread thin. A Mobile App bridges that gap between you and them and keeps things direct; your listeners download the app that you branded and created yourself, and your content gets to their ears in no time.

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?

And so, the journey begins

What gets an app featured on Google Play?

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?
