San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
Spreaker, the leading platform for podcasts, announced today the launch of Spreaker Studio for iOS. This new version enables podcast creators to more seamlessly create audio content on the fly, which can be either streamed live or shared as podcasts. The in-app purchase of upgrades brings a host of robust features including unlimited broadcasting, full analytics, and increased visibility, among other features.
According to Edison Research, podcasts have officially gone mainstream with approximately 46 million Americans listening to a podcast every month, or about 17% of the population – and rising.
Companies like Edison Research, Midroll, and Triton Digital, among others, are helping to usher in advertisers to podcast platforms like Spreaker by bringing measurement and meaningful listenership data to agencies and brands who increasingly recognize the value of more affluent and well-educated demographics among podcast/digital audio listeners.
“Just as music artists began to go independent with the advent of MP3 distribution, budding media moguls and those with social media followings are increasingly turning to podcasts to broaden their base and grow their revenue streams as advertisers take note of the brand loyalty and intimacy afforded by podcast consumption,” said Francesco Baschieri, founder and CEO. “With the Spreaker Studio apps now supported across all mobile platforms, content creators can now distribute frequent and better podcasts more easily.”
The original popular Spreaker app aimed at podcast discovery and browsing remains widely available on a plethora of platforms for iOS, Android or Windows Mobile.
As trends prove both smartphones and smart cars are forces driving consumers to online audio sources, Spreaker’s content is perfectly suited to meet this demand, enabling binge listening during rush hour or quick consumption in-between classes.
Spreaker Studio’s set of tools include a web-based mixing console, a sound effects library and the ability to broadcast live audio, which can be automatically embedded across websites, social networks, and blogs, making everyone from a presidential candidate to a college student sitting in their dorm room equally empowered to get their message out without censorship or intermediaries.
