Mobian: Day 3

by Aaron Crowder on

Today was day three of running Mobian as a "daily-driver" on my Braveheart Pinephone. Much like day two, it was fairly uneventful. I chatted a bit with folks on Twitter/Mastodon and one question I got was what app I was using for Podcasts. I hadn't tried a Podcasting app yet, so I figured I would try a couple today.

This was the first app I tried. It was reccomended to me, and I think it would probably work really well except that it wasn't scaled to work well on mobile. From what I could tell it has lots of good features though, so I hope there are improvements made on this front.

Podcasts

I found this app on both flathub and the Mobian wiki. It looked fairly simple and I decided it was worth a try. I am glad I did. It works really well looks great on a mobile screen. You can add your podcasts feeds (just the RSS feed of the Podcast) and download / play them. It doesn't have a search feature, or some of the other things that one might expect, but it does what it claims to do and does it well.

Summary

I only tried these two apps, but I can say for sure that Podcasts will do the job well. Tomorrow I am going to tackle music streaming services. I look forward to more development on this front!
