There are so many podcast apps. What makes Podly different?

@dustinlocke unlike most other podcast apps Podly isn't a single player experience. It offers an activity feed of who's listening to what - and I can browse other people's profiles to see what shows/episodes they've enjoyed. This helps a ton with discovery (assuming there's people you know with taste you trust).

@san_picciarelli I said most, not all 😄 also not a huge fan of how tung offers similar features. Neither app is perfect, but for now I prefer Podly.

Just wanted to let the makers know that Podly (spelled "Podły") means despicable/mean in Polish ;-)

No Android love? 83% of smartphones and counting.

@jeremydrysdale the high end market is much lower on Android. Factor out the cheap phones, leaves with much less.
Jeremy Drysdale@jeremydrysdale
@charles_cooper1 I take your point, although don't Samsung outsell Apple by two to one?
Matt Horton@mattahorton · APM, Capital One Labs
@charles_cooper1 @jeremydrysdale why does that mean Android shouldn't have apps? This one is not, paid, so that rule doesn't matter.
Jeremy Drysdale@jeremydrysdale
@mattahorton @charles_cooper1 I apologise for not being clear - I was wondering why this wasn't available for Android. They should have apps, because they control the market. Is that clearer?
Matt Horton@mattahorton · APM, Capital One Labs
@jeremydrysdale @charles_cooper1 I was responding to Charles. :D

@jeremydrysdale we love Android! While their market share is bigger, most podcast listening is still happening on iOS. Plus the fragmentation just makes it harder to develop for. We're a small dev team and had to start somewhere. We definitely plan bringing to our Android once the iOS experience is finalized.
Jeremy Drysdale@jeremydrysdale
@orengoldfinger Thanks for the reply, Oren. And good luck!

@jeremydrysdale That's a pretty misleading statistic given the fragmentation of the Android market. I wonder, if a developer makes a single version of a new app (with modern features etc), and releases it on the Google Play store, what sort of coverage of the Android device population could they actually hope to achieve? I ask this out of genuine curiosity. (By comparison something like 74% of iOS users are on iOS 10, and most apps are easily made to be backwards-compatible at least to iOS 7 or 8.)
Jeremy Drysdale@jeremydrysdale
@shimmb Well, as 83% of smartphones run on Android and the majority of those are on Marshmallow, which is also backwards-compatible an iteration or two, I'm guessing that Android would still have substantially bigger numbers. It's worth also pointing out that not only are there way, way, way more Androids out there, iPhone market share is shrinking all the time.

@jeremydrysdale "App Annie believes the Apple’s App Store produced about twice as much revenue as Google Play"....despite Android's large marketshare lead, via: https://twitter.com/asymco/statu...

@kaz Odd. "...but Google Play's worldwide downloads were 60 percent higher than iOS App Store downloads." http://www.zdnet.com/article/ios...
