As mentioned before, I enjoy podcasts. More often than not, my AirPods will be in my ears and I’ll be listening to ATP, Cortex, or The Adventure Zone. While my current podcast app of choice is wonderful, I wanted to figure out how to make a podcast app myself. Off and on since February I’ve been working on this surprisingly complex little app. The basics of the app are public and available on GitHub, though I forked the repo and continued on privately a few months ago.
Currently, the app has the ability to search the iTunes podcast database, parse through each podcast’s RSS feed, subscribe to a podcast, download, play, and delete episodes, skip silences, and a few other small features. There’s still quite a bit I want to complete, such as side loading files through iCloud, custom animations, and more advanced audio processing. It’s been a fun project.
