Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
Since its launch in April, five app developers have implemented the One Click Subscribe on Android by podcast service resource Blubrry. Until One Click, subscribing to a show on Android was an arduous, multi-step process; the feature provides Android audiences a simple solution, said Angelo Mandato, CIO of RawVoice, Blubrry’s parent company.
“Adding One Click Subscribe on Android to an existing Android podcast app is not complicated,” said Mandato, lead architect of the service. “The first thing we hear from developers is how easy it is to incorporate the new protocol into their applications.”
Five podcast applications have implemented the feature for Android devices with more to come:
Spreaker confirmed that they also will be implementing the One Click Subscribe protocol on their website, to make it easy for podcast listeners to subscribe to podcasts.
Developers interested in adding the protocol may visit http://subscribeonandroid.com and take a look at the ‘For Developers’ page detailing the implementation steps.
Blubrry is enthused about the positive reaction from developers, podcast listeners and content creators.
Kevin Hausmann, developer behind Podcatcher Deluxe, reports: “The Blubrry team was very supportive and the two lines of code were literally all it took to implement Subscribe on Android.”
For Android users, searching for a show used to be difficult, Bryan Goodwin host of the Podcast Dojo notes in his blog post: “If [listeners] are not able to find it because of whatever reason, then they have to do the multi-step trial of patience. Most podcast listeners give up before they even try these following steps.
“The incredibly smart guys over at Blubrry have come up with a solution, and this solution is pretty innovative,” Goodwin writes. Blubrry “created the necessary protocols for podcast managers [and] developers to add to their apps for the simple One Click Subscribe on Android.”
