Do you like apps for your phone that make you smarter? C’mon, we all want to be smarter right?
If you are in sales or run a small business, you should always be looking for tools to make you more productive. This is especially true in the world of insurance sales.
I love finding the newest apps to make my life easier, increase my knowledge, and to help me become more productive. I wrote about three of my favorite apps for collecting and sharing content recently, but what about apps that help you listen to great content?
There are many solid options, but as far as listening to news, podcasts, and other enlightening information, I go to one source: Stitcher Radio.
Stitcher Radio is like brain candy. It’s the utopia of audible content all at your fingertips.
The best part of Stitcher Radio is that you can listen from anywhere. I mainly listen to Stitcher on my iPhone, but it’s also available on iPad, Android, and desktop.
You select your preferred topics, current news, or favorite shows and Stitcher does the rest.
There are a number of awesome features on Stitcher, but here are a few of my favorites.
- Favorites menu. I have about 14 podcasts that I listen to regularly whether I am at home, at work, on the road, or maybe even in the shower (don’t judge). One of the best features is that my favorite shows are always updated and ready to go automatically. You can check out some of my favorite shows with the image on the right.
- You can download the shows to you phone. With just a simple update all of your shows can play without streaming. If you are worried about using too much data or don’t get great service from certain locations, this option is awesome. When you are done, poof, you can clear all downloads.
- Smart stations. Once you start listening to your favorites, Stitcher will start recommending other shows and information that may be of interest to you. Let’s face it, there is a huge amount of listening content available. Finding what you like can waste valuable time. Smart station helps you get to the stuff you like.
- Resumes episodes across devices and platforms. This is so cool and convenient. I can be listening to a show on the phone in my car, resume it at the office on my desktop, and then finish it on my iPad in bed at night. All without missing a beat. Like most busy professional people, I don’t usually have time to listen to a full 30-60 minute show at one time so this feature has been extremely useful.
These are the just a few of the cool features I love about Stitcher. The best feature though is that it provides a one-stop shop for all content across multiple platform and devices.
If you are looking to catch up on the latest news, learn from engaging content to help grow your business, or just need a chuckle, check out Stitcher today.
No, Stitcher Radio didn’t pay me to write this, but they are welcome to contact me and I accept cash!
