Why Player FM Went Native

In this recent contribution to GigaOM, I explained why a web app wasn’t enough. Why Player FM went all-out native with an Android app.

To be clear, the web app is alive and well, and in fact has received several upgrades recently. A few years back, the question was “Web versus Native”, but now it’s well-understood this is a false dichotomy. A cloud-based service like Player FM needs to get the most out of both.
