Here is a review that arrived on the US App Store today - thanks for this review Kurt, hearing how my Apps are making peoples lives just that bit easier makes it all worthwhile!
It's a workhorse! - "I'll just conclude with this: do you listen to more than a half hour podcast per week? Then, absolutely, positively, you deserve to buy RSSRadio.Five stars: well deserved!"...Okay. I am an IT nerd and very stingy with my five stars. It is not that this app is perfect, though it does do everything that I can think of that I might want it to do.It's not even that this developer just continues to work and work at new features every time I download the latest version.
No, it is really, simply put, that I use RSSRadio every single day. It's a workhorse! Add to the fact that I discovered dar.FM through this app; I now do maybe a couple dozen hours of listening a week with RSSRadio.Further, earlier this week, I discovered a new feature that allows me to squeeze out just the core content of a show without all of the hemming and hawing of long-winded, inarticulate, dead-air-time pod casters, saving me almost 25% time, for one show—without having to speed up dialogue… which, BTW, does that too.
But today, was the coup de grace. I stopped everything I was doing and decided to talk to Siri to write this review, which is something I almost never do—write reviews, that is. "Siri, "I said, "take a memo."I was listening to an MP3 that I had legally downloaded, and needed to be able to skip back and repeat what was just said by 10 seconds or so. The British speaker was difficult to understand and I knew I would be doing this a lot. I was bemoaning the idea that I couldn't just listen to it in my iTunes (no way to get it there without a computer) or in RSSRadio where I can easily skip forward and back.
Then it hit me: I realized I could simply open the file in RSSRadio and build an entire playlist and listen to it there.Although the process was a bit tedious, it was worth it. When I was done, I had a beautiful, hand-crafted playlist, ready to go in RSSRadio with all the forward and backward skipping I could ever want!Add to that a little preset equalization and Bam! Beautiful, relaxed, listening.
Honestly, I could say even more about features such as customizing number of downloads, episode retention, playback gestures … so much more.
I'll just conclude with this: do you listen to more than a half hour podcast per week? Then, absolutely, positively, you deserve to buy RSSRadio.Five stars: well deserved!-Kurt
