nēdl (as in, ‘the haystack’) makes finding audio from live news, sports, and talk stations, popular podcasts, and users, as easy as searching the web!  Type or say a keyword, and you’ll be delivered to the stream that's talking about it!  Listening is always 100% free!
nēdl is an app that converts audio into text so knowledge seekers can discover information about any topic and content creators can share information either anonymously or signed in.  Audio creators can create their own live broadcasts that are searchable by the words they say and shareable to anyone-- even if their audience doesn't have the app.

nēdl is where you go when breaking news or major events occurs and you want to learn more or share it with the world.  Whether your team wins, an event happens, something happens in your neighborhood, or a person you care about makes the headlines-- find live audio from local news reporters, your neighbors, and major news outlets without channel surfing.  Want to learn more than the headline?  Dig deeper with more than 10,000,000 episodes from 350,000 podcasts.  

nēdl is democratizing access to information and the microphone itself!  #FindVoicesBeHeard

Why use nēdl to listen to live news, sports, entertainment, or podcasts?
With access to over 120,000 live radio stations from around the world and over 350,000 podcasts (10M episodes). Save time with the world's only live keyword search and have a shared listening experience with the content you'll discover.

Why use nēdl to broadcast?
Hello-- Is this thing on?  Whether you're a big content creator or just starting out, your number one challenge is discovery.  With over 700,000 podcasts and over 200,000 live radio streams across the world, there's just too much content for anyone to stand out easily.  Unless...  

Unless your words could be made as powerful as a large network and every word said could be weighted equally.  This way, people could discover you by the words everyone is searching for at any given moment, just as long as you're discussing those words and topics, too. What you say would matter more than who you are. That's nēdl. 

Why? Because major networks shouldn't be the only place to find great opinions on the latest trade from your favorite team.  And, with nēdl, your words are instantly indexed among the biggest names in media, like CNN, the BBC, ESPN, and more! 

Everyone gets 30-minutes free to try it out and 1-month free once you select a plan!  You can even earn $$$ with 'tips' or as we call it, 'Hay.'  Just bring people to your stream with the share button to build your audience and when they sign-up and like what they hear, they can tip you.  Why not make some hay?

Great news! nēdl can help you grow your audience and nurture your super fans. Go live to tease your next broadcast or stay live to get a transcript instantly as you record your regular show! Share your profile and all of your followers will be alerted to tune in!

What’s New

Version 5.0.5

nēdl has a BRAND NEW look and feel, the ability to EARN $$$ by collecting tips (we call it 'Hay'), and 100% focus on you, the broadcaster, embedding your live words in our search index with premium content from the world over!

Using nēdl’s real-time live search, in addition, to live news, talk, sports, and user-generated content, nēdlers can now search over 350,000 individual podcasts and 10 million episodes! Just search by keyword and nēdl will find the exact live stream or spot in the podcast where your term appears.

We removed Smart Scan, Artist Search, Song Search and horizontal mode. In its place, we have a new discovery screen with Voice Search where nēdlers can access live and recorded speech (breaking news, live sporting events, sports talk, political commentary, comedy shows and more) by keyword.

Also added is a player at the bottom of the screen that nēdlers can tap to expand.

When a nēdlcasters go live now, a red overlay will appear signifying the nēdlcaster is LIVE ON AIR. We even updated the nēdlcast microphone. To distinguish between Voice Search and live broadcasts -- we now use two different types of mics.

Current nēdlers can find their favorite stations and a new tipping feature we call hay on their profile screen.

While it's always free to listen, subscription prices for nēdlcasting have also been updated. Now, everyone gets 30-minutes free to try out their voice on air, and 1-Month free towards any of the auto-renewing subscription plans that start at $1.99/month!

Oh I found live audio.... and more

This app is sick, it’s got every station imaginable and some awesome ones I never knew existed, like some lofi vaporwave station called Nightwave Plaza! And I could broadcast myself amongst these stations. It’s the place to find awesome new music and talk and where to broadcast yourself too!! Smooth, slick, and sick. I love it!!

Sickening Lack of Accessability for Blind iOS Users

I utilize VoiceOver, which is the screen reader used for Apple, seeing as how you need a discription of some kind since you appear to have no concept of it since it was clearly not factored into app development. Anyway, when attempting to go live both times, the whole phone froze, I lost speech and had to restart it to get it back and this is completely not acceptable.
I suggest you get this fixed to avoid making more users mad, because you have already lost me.
I will not take back any part of this statement,

Amazing app!

When I first heard of this app and what it did, I was sure it wouldn’t work well due to the complexity of what it does. However, I was surprised. It works flawlessly and the app is amazing! The design is also fantastic and the app is easy to use but also very efficient.
