A specialist in emerging channel strategy, Mobile Business Development & Sales strategy, the client identified the specific challenge that users faced to view podcast audio and to download subscribed videos for future usage. The key challenges users faced was about a player which plays the audio that is downloaded or from live . These challenges made the client create an application called LBS Podcast, where user can view all podcast which they have subscribe it. Also a custom widget is created through which user can play podcast audio. In-app purchase functionality which helps user to purchase the podcasts.
The LBC Podcast was an excellent idea to subscribe and unsubscribe channels. The client and Techseria knew that there will be many users and a lot of data in different channels. So it was necessary to create the admin and the mobile application robust and scalable. The key part here was to develop a widget and based to play all podcast.
