Introducing — The Podcast Queue
Today, Sodio is introducing some shiny new features. In this post we’ll dig into them using a combination of text and GIF images. It might take some time to load the GIFs, but they’re definitely worth waiting for.
If you haven’t done so already, grab the updated Sodio iPhone app over here. Okay, let’s go!
One of the most integral parts of Sodio will henceforth be its Queue function. This is where you put the episodes you want downloaded to your device. The Queue makes it easy to save episodes for later, e.g. when you’re traveling or for some reason don’t have an internet connection.
The episodes you add to your Queue will automatically download once you’re connected to Wi-Fi.
The episodes you’ve finished listening to will automatically be removed from your Queue and device.
We’ve given the player a little bit of love. It now goes hand in hand with your Queue. Select an episode in your Queue and you’ll jump straight over to the player.
The Episode Details
Selecting an episode will provide you with the full details of that episode. Choose ‘Play Now’ to instantly start listening or choose ‘Add To Queue’ to queue and download the episode for later listening.
