Mobile Nations 19: Passport

It's been a while since we've fired things up for a cross-site Mobile Nations Podcast, so on the eve of Apple announcing a new smaller iPad (happening today), we thought the time was right.

In addition to discussing the latest happenings across mobile platforms, we also discuss one of the big changes coming to our Mobile Nations sites. We'll soon be rolling out Mobile Nations Passport, our long-awaited unified account management system. This is the feature request we hear most often from our members across CrackBerry, Android Central, iMore, Windows Phone Central and webOS Nation, and it's launching soon. To give us the overview and get into some of the details, we have a very special guest on the show, Marcus Adolfsson. It's a Mobile Nations podcast you won't want to miss!

BBC Podcast Lounge has been released on the Windows Phone Marketplace. Developed by Igneous Software, who are responsible for the BBC Radio apps, the app enables users to browse and listen to an array of podcast programmes available from the BBC. From arts and drama to comedy and quizzes, the catalogue has enough content for everyone's taste.

Some of the highlighted features:

  • Background audio playback
  • Familiar interface with panorama
  • Search by programme title
  • List by category or station
  • Ability to select favourites
  • Ability to pin programme to start
  • Full integration with music + video hub
  • Playback continues under lock screen

We mentioned in our quick look at BBC Podcast Lounge that there was no functionality present to pin programmes to the home screen for more convenient access, this has been added for the v1.0 release. Check out our quick run through of the app in the below video.

You can download BBC Podcast Lounge from the Marketplace for free.

We've had the chance to look at an upcoming app from Igneous Software, who are responsible for the BBC Radio apps available on the Marketplace. Their latest project, BBC Podcast Lounge, does exactly what it says on the tin. The UI and design of the app is superb and follows on nicely from their previous radio apps, but it's the functionality and end-polish that shines in BBC Podcast Lounge.

On app launch you're greeted by the featured screen with tiles of top recommended podcasts. From here you can pan across and view all the genres (the BBC reportedly contains over 300 unique programmes) available, from Jazz and Rock all the way to Science and Soap, there's something for every taste. If you'd rather select shows by stations and / or region, a full list is present to break down the catalogue.

As well as the selection lists, programmes can be added to the favourites for more convenient access, but unfortunately they (or the radio stations) can't be pinned to the home screen. Search is also available, which will enable the user to filter through the programmes available in real-time. As well as the breakdown categories, featured, and favourites the main app screen also sports miscellaneous links for rating the app, etc. and providing feedback to the developers.

Playback is just what you'd expect from a generic media / music player, and with the included background playback functionality one can continue to battle zombies or help defeat Dr. Robotnik while listening to a gardening talk show. BBC Podcast Lounge also integrates itself into the list of applications in the Music and Video hub. Check out our quick walkthrough of the app below.

We expect BBC Radio Podcast to be hitting the Marketplace soon (we'll announce exactly when it's available). Note that features present in the video and covered by this preview article are subject to change. Igneous Software have stated they have plans to introduce a download manager and functionality for offline playback in the next version. Positive times ahead!
