New pod­cast app for Linux is now ready for test­ing

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

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.
