Podchaster is thrilled to announce the acquisition of Podcharts and Podrover. Podchaser is continuing its mission to power podcast discovery and empower podcast creators with the tools they need to succeed all in one place. Podcharts and Podrover were originally created by Cesare Rocci of Studio Magnolia.
Podcharts is a service that allows you to track podcast charts and rankings across popular apps like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher. Charts are broken down across categories, location, and platform with historical data available to view trends across time. Users can track specific podcasts and receive updates on their movements in each chart.
Podrover is the app and service that helps podcasters track, organize, and share their podcast reviews across multiple platforms including Podchaser, Apple Podcasts, and Stitcher. Podcasters never miss a review as Podrover automatically brings in reviews and sends notifications when you get a review. Via Podrover’s app and website, podcasters can easily organize and view all of their reviews in one spot.
Aside from a new Podchaser-branded outfit, Podcharts and Podrover will continue as standalone services with new improvements coming soon! You’ll also be seeing Podchaser implemented reviews, charts data, historical trends, and more into its discovery platform, creator tools, and professional services. Stay tuned!
Podrover collects the reviews of your podcast from iTunes and Stitcher. They notify you of new reviews and automatically share your favorite ones on social media. Podrover has announced Twitter Snippets.
So far you have been using a canned text snippet to share your favorite reviews automatically. Not anymore! Now you can specify different snippets. At the moment there’s two, one for English and one for Spanish.
Podrover included this image to give you a look at the improvement they made to Twitter Snippets. You can now have Podrover send out a Tweet about your podcast either in English or in Spanish. I can see where this would be useful for podcasts that are done in Spanish, or for podcasts that are done in English but have a large audience in a country where most people speak Spanish.
Obviously, Twitter Snippets are only accessible to podcasters who not only are paying a subscription to Podrover, but also have plenty of fans on Twitter. At the time I am writing this blog, it does not appear that Podrover has a service similar to Twitter Snippets for Facebook or other forms of social media.
For those that are interested, Podrover has three levels of subscriptions. (Choose either monthly or yearly.)
