RadioPublic - Podcasts app with curated playlists
By RADIOPUBLIC PBC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Radio Public narrows what you could hear to what you should. Whether you are new to podcasts and not sure where to start, or a long-time listener with dozens of existing subscriptions, Radio Public can help.
There are 250,000 podcasts and more than 15 million episodes. Over a billion minutes of entertainment, education and information. Nearly infinite choice. Seems great right?
But it's also overwhelming and frustrating.
* Which of the millions of episodes should I hear?
* Will this episode be a waste of my time and attention?
* Are there new episodes available from shows I follow?
*** Not sure where to start? ***
Try our handcrafted playlists, each episode thoughtfully picked by people who love podcasts. You’ll find playlists like: “Start here”, “Perfect for your commute” and “The best of 2016”. Our playlists are a great way to sample shows like This American Life, Stuff You Should Know, Serial and Another Round from networks like Radiotopia, Gimlet, PRX, Panoply, NPR and Wondery. Spend less time browsing through long lists of categories and topics and more time listening to great stuff.
*** Humans for the win! ***
Looking for a more personal, concierge level recommendation? Our Radio Public podcast librarians (yes, real people) have deep knowledge about podcasts and want to help you with a personal suggestion. We love helping people find the perfect show or episode. Tell us a little about the books, TV shows and movies you love and we’ll get to work.
*** Just listen. ***
Tap play, start listening and Radio Public starts a personalized, never ending stream of episodes. Want more control over what you hear? The shows and playlists you follow are prioritized over our picks. So if a new episode from your favorite show comes out, we’ll make sure you hear that over something we picked for you.
*** Know exactly what you want? ***
Search for a show, follow it and episodes will start to appear in your suggestions and stream of episodes. Already listen in an other podcast app? Import your existing subscriptions from apps like Apple Podcast, Overcast and Pocket Casts. Radio Public also supports private premium podcast subscriptions like those you might get from a podcaster using Patreon."
What's New in Version 1.7.0
Sometimes when you see an interesting episode you want to tap the play button faster. We've made a small, but useful update to how episodes are displayed in the app. You'll now see a play button on each episode so you can start listening right away. Tapping anywhere else will open up the episode details, where you can read the show notes and add the episode to your queue so you can listen later.
I'm getting older, not quite at the bi-focal stage but definitely at the, yeah I have to squint a bit and do the whole move my hand in and out to get something into focus. Long winded way of saying we increased the size of some of the smaller text in the app. Yay fewer squint wrinkles!
Bump bump bump isn't just a P. Diddy song from 2002, it's also subtle feedback when you follow a show, add an episode to your queue and a few other key actions. These help you have confidence in knowing the action was completed. Available on iOS 7 devices.
Do you like shortcuts? I do. If your phone supports 3D touch you can now get quick access to resume listening, your queue, search and with the widget, even see the episodes you've added to your queue. You can get them by force-pressing the RadioPublic app icon.
We've also added improved support for VoiceOver, the iOS screen reader to this update. If you use VoiceOver and have feedback for us we'd love if you could get in touch.
This version of the app is a bit faster too, the team took a look at some optimizations to get things moving a bit quicker.
The Great One was truly great. Wayne picked up 2,857 total points over his career… crazy. Jagr is a way distant second with 1,905. When we went to McDonald's as kids my dad used to "steal" some of my french fries by telling me that Gretzky walked in — I knew he didn't, but just maybe this time he did. And could I really risk missing that?
