In this episode, I share my opinion on what I look for in a New Podcast App. There are a ton of new features being designed, and I share what and why I look forward to using these features.
I started using Apple Podcasts App back in 2005 until it broke (and stayed broken for about a week). Then I switched to Overcast, and if Marco (the developer) added streaming sats to the app, I wouldn't be talking about testing other apps.
In the past, I've tried fountain and Podverse, but that was a while ago. Both had their pros and cons.
I'm currently using Castamatic. Why? Because it acts and feels just like Overcast.
My Wish List
Playlists that automatically update when an episode from a specific show download. So I can have a playlist where I add show A, Show B, and Show C, and as soon as any of those shows publish an episode, it's in a specific playlist (Health, Money, Podcasting, Friends). I will also need to sort these by date.
Satoshi streaming (setting a level per minute for each show. Some are more valuable than others)
Starting and ending points (cause some shows to take forever to get to the good stuff and/or take too long to say goodbye.
Keep X amount of episodes.
Delete after listening.
Respect anything labeled as serial
Sorting oldest to newest
While we Are At It
If I could get a search function that works.
A functional web-based version that is synchronized so I can pick up right where I left off when I pick up my phone.
The ability to upload a file and have it downloaded into the app.
I would love it if it worked with Alexa from Amazon.
Be sure to charge me, so you stay in business.
Full list at website.
MAKE IT EASY TO PROMOTE
I want to point people to MY show on YOUR app. The easier it is to do this, the more likely I am to do it.

The Developer Wants Your Experience to Be Good
A developer can't fix something they are unaware of. If you talk to them nice, and don't call them names, they are much more likely to hear your suggestion and fix any bugs.
