We thought that some of you may benefit from a very brief tutorial on setting up a podcasting application on your smartphone. This type of application takes the posts made from our website and then copies that post to your app. If there’s a sermon or broadcast included (which there will be most of the time), then you can either stream or download the audio files with your app. It really only takes a few steps to set up, which are laid out below:
- Go to the store for your phone and search for “Podcasting application” and select one, download and install it. It’s best to start with a free app and there are a number of different ones to choose from depending on the type of phone you have.
- Come back to the site and select the type of phone you may and then the app you installed and then select subscribe.
- Once you do this, your app will now download the posts for you and you can stream the audio or download it at your leisure.
Here are some images to help you. The first picture highlights the “Subscribe” function, once you select that, you’ll be prompted for an app and you should select the app you’ve downloaded. The last two images show how a sermon looks uses a podcasting app, as illustrated in an app called “Podkicker,” which is a free application available on both Android and iPhones. (NOTE: Podcasting apps are also available on windows phones and most computers.)
