Spreaker introduced their new Spreaker Podcast Radio home screen widget. The widget will display an array of podcasts, even when your phone is locked.
Your tried and true podcasts will be clearly laid out for you and each will be readily accessible with just a tap, right from your home screen. It’ll save you swipes and time, especially when you’re multitasking between your workout, emails, and instant messages. An improved and personalized listening experience lets you keep your flow as you go through all your to do’s, without missing a beat.
The widget will display your podcasts in two sections. The top half will show the podcasts that you listen to the most. Tap on any one of them and you’ll be prompted to unlock your phone. As soon as you do, the Spreaker Podcast Radio app will open up automatically to that very podcast.
Below it, the widget will list your most recently downloaded episodes. Tap on any of those, and you will be prompted to unlock your phone. This time, you will be automatically brought to a list of whatever you last downloaded.
Quick Actions are another feature of the Spreaker Podcast Radio widget. They are shortcuts that get you to different kinds of content in a snap. By touching and holding (on Android) or 3D touching (on iOS) Spreaker Podcast Radio’s app icon, you will be able to begin a new search, open the Listen Later playlist, or open the Downloads playlist.
Quick Actions are available to all iOS users. Quick Actions are only available to Android users with Android 7.1 and above (Nougat).
