Spreaker is one of the most advanced applications to broadcast podcasts from anywhere. If you have an iPhone and a headset, you can start a live or delayed podcast .
One of the great improvements in the Spreaker Studio REC application is that we can access our music library or sound effects without having to sync with iTunes or store them in Spreaker’s own server.
This gives much more freedom for Podcasters, where often the resources are in iCloud Drive or Dropbox . Thanks to iOS 11, the integration of the application is almost perfect.
For those who don’t know the application REC by Spreaker , is an application designed for podcasters , where you don’t need a Mac to be able to broadcast live or delayed. In the iOS application itself, we have everything we need to start broadcasting anywhere in the world.
We simply need a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection to be able to start our live episode . If we prefer to do it later we have that option too. The similarity to the macOS application is almost identical.
One of the improvements that we do want to see to bring it up to par with the macOS app, is the possibility of programming episodes directly with the iOS app . Something that today is not possible, having to resort to the Spreaker web from our iPad or iPhone in desktop mode.
The integration of iCloud Drive and Dropbox works really well , sometimes, depending on our internet connection, the files can be delayed a bit to load completely. But that’s something outside the application.
If you have contracted Apple Music , you can browse through your music library to select your favorite song and include it in your podcast. Something to be thankful for so you don’t have to sync with iTunes.
Spreaker’s REC application is completely free , where they offer monthly and yearly payment plans that increase the servers’ capacities. The more plan, the more capacity and more tools available, such as, improved statistics, feed customization or even 24/7 live recording.
It’s true that the price plans are high , where most users will think twice before making the jump to Spreaker, but it’s also true that the application offers everything necessary to not depend on a Mac in most cases.
