In case you didn’t catch the tweets, press release, news coverage or analysis in the past couple of weeks, Aha Mobile has been acquired by Harman International Industries.
After adding a slew of Mix stations last time around, we are back to a mix of individual podcast stations.
By request we are adding additional BBC and NPR programs, expanding the Adam Carolla network presence with two of his sister shows, and adding another show from the folks over at HowStuffWorks.
Having trouble keeping up on the latest episodes from a few of your favorite podcasts? Back in February I described how to use the My Feeds station to create a customized station with all of your favorite shows. We’ve gone a step further and created some special combo stations for you.
We also took this opportunity to add one of my all-time favorite podcasts… The Tony Kornheiser Show (my wife can’t fall asleep without it!).
Did you know that Aha Radio’s default setting is to automatically filter out anything that contains profane or explicit material? That may be the default…but we also like to give users a choice, which is why I’m here today to tell you all about the preference called Allow Explicit Content.
As I mentioned yesterday, an iOS4 specific update for Aha Radio was submitted to the App Store for approval, and I’m pleased to report that the updated version is NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!
As just about all iPhone owners are aware, Apple released a major iOS update to coincide with the release of the new iPhone4. We tested against it with the SDK, but a playback issue snuck by us and some users have probably noticed that non-podcast content is getting cut off early. If you are still on iOS 3, or only listen to podcast stations, you have not been impacted.
