Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Now anyone with an audio podcast can turn it into a professional quality Android app in minutes using Andromo App Maker for Android - all without having to program. The new Podcast activity is the latest addition to Andromo's set of audio features, which also includes Internet radio stations, soundboards and music players.
Andromo is an online service for creating Android apps without programming. Users point and click to customize the look of their app and add features by selecting from a list of popular activities, including Twitter streams, Facebook pages, YouTube videos, photo galleries, and more.
With its new Podcast activity, Andromo now includes support for iTunes Podcast RSS feeds. To turn a podcast into an app, all the app designer has to do is select the Podcast activity and input the feed's URL. Andromo then builds an app that allows for streaming episodes over the network and downloading for playback offline. The app displays the feed as a list of episodes that can be tapped to read a full description, and then play or download an episode.
The ability to distribute a podcast as an Android app can greatly expand a podcast's listenership. Using Andromo, podcasters can make a professional app that is built in minutes, and ready for immediate distribution to audience of hundreds of millions on Google Play, the official Android Market.
"We're very excited to add podcast features to our group of audio activities. It has been one of the most requested additions since Andromo's launch," says Andromo president Colin Adams. "Now podcasters can use Andromo to design a professional Android app that their fans can use to stream audio or download shows while on the go."
Using Andromo, podcasters can create a more interactive experience for their followers than podcasts alone allow. Apps can include features like Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, YouTube videos, contact pages and more in order to keep fans connected and grow their show's following.
