Wow! Can really be something!
Next update——I have an iphone 13 mini, bought new, this is the only app I have that cause my battery to heat up and do so quickly. If you do other things on your phone it cause a significant amount of lag. I would put 2 stars, as this should be in beta, but I don’t want to help kill the project because I want it to succeed. Get it together—————— —-update: Actually the earning is pretty garbage everything else works fine.—————— Little convoluted to find any podcast-go to podcasts-search then you can find them, otherwise, if you try to search overall it doesn’t work properly, but it starts earning immediately!!! It’s great! I listen to podcasts daily! Maybe next, audio books?! ****Slight issue-when I click rewind earning for the rest of the episode becomes an issue even if I open and close the app****
I tried Fountain after Adam Curry’s recommendation to try new podcast apps on his show No Agenda Show. Fountain caught my eye with the logo, and after installing I plugged in the one podcast that I always have trouble finding on Apple podcasts for some reason. Energy 98 The Listening Room (a music podcast) popped right up! For some reason No matter how many keywords I throw into Apple podcast this show does not show up. I can find it on Google’s Podcast thing but the only way I can find it on Apple is to import an old show into the old iTunes software then subscribe from there. Well I’m not on a mac anymore; anyway Fountain’s search seems to be legit as I am now able to subscribe to one of my all time favorite podcasts. THANK YOU, it’s a small thing in life to get a podcast but it makes daily life enjoyable. THANK YOU!!!
The earnings do not seem consistent. It appears that unless I have my iPhone unlocked, with the screen up and the podcast that I’m streaming visible, the sats earned don’t continue counting up. It resets if I lock my phone and then come back.
Also, my phone gets really warm while listening. Much warmer than if I’m listening to my Apple podcasts app.
