Once a month, David and I host a live version of Mac Power Users that we call simply, MPU Live. The show typically is recorded on the first Saturday of the month at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern time. We started the live shows about a year ago as a way to respond to and feature some of the amazing listener feedback we receive each week. The live shows have quickly become some some of my favorite episodes . We’re able to cover a wide range of topics and the agenda is completely set by the feedback we receive by the listeners in any given month.
Because the live shows are fairly infrequent, only once a month, some listeners have trouble participating, or remembering the show is about to go live. This week that becomes a whole lot simpler thanks to the great new App introduced by Relay.fm which help solve this problem and offers a lot more. From the Relay.fm Blog:
Powered by Tapjet, the Relay FM app also gives you access to the latest episodes of our podcasts. Select your favorite shows, and the app will send you a push notification when those shows go live, letting you listen to the show right within the app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Find something new you want to check out again? Tap the Subscribe button to add it to your podcast app of choice. Want to see the show notes? They’re just a tap away, too.
The App features some great artwork and animations and is very easy to use. It’s also a great tool if you’re trying to introduce someone to all the great shows on the Relay network and they’re unfamiliar with the concept of podcasting.
The App is available as a free download on the App Store.
