Agora

A special place for your podcasts

#4 Product of the DayOctober 08, 2017

Agora is a podcast player that allows you to manage your content easily, stay tuned to each new update of your subscriptions and expand your catalogue discovering new content, but this is not everything: Proximity sensor, iCloud backup, timer, speed control, rich notifications, customization...

Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Incredible design, Finding new content is a piece of cake

    Cons: 

    none

    In addition to the usefulness of the app I love to get to discover new hidden gems within Agora. There are interactions and details that show that it has been built with great care. It's really easy to discover new content and it's great to look at. Love the automatic Day/Night theme!

Hello Product Hunt! I'm really glad to show you my next app, a podcast player. I wanted to give podcasts a special place that treats them with affection and which enhances their contents. I hope you like it and use it :)

@dobleperez Hi Javi, thanks for making this. I quite enjoy your design style. I wanted to take a look at Agora before purchasing it. I've looked at all the videos on the twitter feed, but I still don't get a sense for how it works. Is it much like Castro in the sense that I have an inbox? Do you have a video walkthrough of the app?

@ricotrevisan right now I’m working on a walkthrough, I will post more videos on Twitter to show how the apps works very soon. Thanks for your interest

@dobleperez hi Javi, just started using Agora and I'm excited to use it daily. 👌🏽 I noticed "Comenzar con Playlist," as a toggle option under settings. Was that intentional?

@jleodaniel no I forgot translate it 😅 If you turn on, you see Playlist launching the app instead Timeline. I’ll fix on next update. Let me know your impressions to improve it. Thanks!
Hey @dobleperez quick heads up. Tried searching for Agora. in the Australian iTunes store and couldn't find anything. I had to look up your name and then go to your other apps from that app to find Agora. Not sure what you can do about that. :\

@kreatific Agora has the worst search index on the AppStore 😩 I will try to solve it. Thanks!

@saclark99 have you checked if you are logged with same Apple Account?
Shaun Clark@saclark99 · Founder Eat Drink Stay Dubai
@dobleperez thanks for reply - same App Store, only have one Apple Account? Have plenty paid apps across two devices, never had an issue before?

@saclark99 this is something that I can’t manage. Is an Store issue, developers can’t request new payment from a payed app.
Shaun Clark@saclark99 · Founder Eat Drink Stay Dubai
@dobleperez but it is doing exactly that? Never happened before and I have many paid apps on two devices. Anyways, here’s the fix - the pay (twice) seems to happen if you try download from the app page. However, if click on profile page (avatar in top right of Apps page in iTunes), then ‘Purchased’ it’s free to re-download to a second device . Looking forward to the app as tried a few of the main podcast apps & always seems to be something missing. Cheers!

I've used a number of podcast apps in the past and Agora is definitely my favorite! It's one of the most beautifully designed apps of 2017. Your attention to every detail is admirable, outstanding! 👍
