RSS Player 3.0 Roadmap

It's been a while since we have made an announcement and we feel it's time to update our users on whats been going and what we want to happen in the future.

RSS Player has been holding steady between spot #15 and #20 on the Top Paid News Apps in the iTunes store. While most user experience is positive, we have been getting some negative reviews and complaints. We hear you and plan to fix most bugs and problems for our next version.

We are planning to releasing RSS Player 3.0 in time for the iPhone 4.0 release. RSS Player 3 will bring such features as background playing and refreshing and some integration with the ipod app. We are also planning on releasing an iPad version of RSS Player 3.0. At some point in time, it's not clear if the apps will be free updates or new application.

Because of how much is going on with RSS Player development, we are looking for people that want to help the RSS Player community.
Some of the work that needs to be done includes
  • Coding in objective-c and c
  • Moderating the podcast directory
  • Designing graphics
  • Answering user support questions
  • PR/Advertising 
  • Twitter support
  • Facebook support
If you love podcasts and are interested in helping out, please email us with a brief explanation of what you would like to help with. Compensation will be determined based on task.
