It’s 2.0 Time: welcome to the all-new RadioPublic app

RadioPublic’s first product – our app for iPhone and Android and web – has been updated. Enjoy!

Welcome to the all-new RadioPublic app: we’ve got an updated look, new listener-requested features, and a whole new way to save and share moments in podcasts you love: HearMarks™.  Read on for more wonderful news.

Also some very important things have not changed: RadioPublic is free, protects your privacy, is universally accessible, and helps support independent podcasters.

Over the past two years of building RadioPublic we’ve heard over and over again from listeners around the world that they were using our apps to listen to their first podcasts, to find new podcasts, and to fall in love all over again with their favorites. Seamless podcast links guide new listeners from web to app to make the head-over-heels-in-podcast-love feeling even more immediate. Our always-changing hand-curated Explore section highlights new and long-running podcasts big and small, and Smart Folder organization means that anyone could become their own top curator. In-app engagement prompts allow podcasters to connect with their most loyal listeners to ask for help or offer exclusives.

And still, we knew we could continue to improve podcast discoverability, organization, and engagement. There’s even more to love with RadioPublic 2.0, and since there’s quite a lot to dig into, we’ve broken out each of the new features with their own highlights.
