DDOT#6- Google Listen 1.1 Update

18 02 2010


Google’s android app “Listen” gets a well needed update. The newest version, 1.1, adds a plethora of new features along with some bug fixes. The new features include:

  • Subscriptions are stored by Google Reader in the “Listen Subscriptions” folder.
  • Subscribed feed items are fresh, no longer limited in size, and are available offline (and more quickly).
  • Screen “My listen items” shows queued and most recently subscribed item, with refresh button for subscriptions.
  • Subscriptions screen is a list of subscribed feeds instead of the most recent item in the feed.
  • Better control of listened state: “Mark all..” on details screen and context menus.
  • The queue is now ordered by time added (instead of publication time).
  • Settings has a “Check for new items” interval that periodically fetches new subscription items.
  • Subscriptions screen has an “Add a subscription” button since the menu item with this function was regularly overlooked.
  • “More episodes” screen now includes a “Queue new” button.
  • Help screens and splash screen have been combined.
  • The item title in the “Now Playing” mini-view is now clickable.
  • Added voice input button to search bar.
  • Play controls in landscape mode now take up less space.
  • Add “Play” to context menu.
  • Search subscriptions has temporarily been removed.
  • Share an episode function has temporarily been removed.
  • Various minor bug fixes.
