New podcast app for Linux is now ready for testing
An all-new podcast app for Ubuntu was launched recently. This app, called ‘Vocal’, has a great UI and design. Nathan Dyer, who is the developer of this project, has released unstable beta builds of the app for Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10, for testing purposes.
Only next-gen easy-to-use desktops are capable of running the beta version of Vocal. Installing beta versions of the app on Ubuntu is not as difficult as installing them on KDE, GNOME or Unity, but users can’t try the beta version of Vocal without installing the unstable elementary desktop PPA. Vocal is an open source app, and one can easily port it to mainstream Linux versions from Ubuntu. However, Dyer suggests users wait until the first official beta version of the app for easy-to-use desktops is available.
The official developer’s blog has a detailed report on the project.
