Yesterday, we released v1.0.3 (beta) of our Kirtan mobile app for iOS (via Apple TestFlight) and Android (via Google Play) which addresses the recent issues on Github such as the blinking photo gallery and scrolling singer and song info. Please update to the latest version and provide feedback by email or directly via Github.
If you haven’t installed the app yet and would like to test on iOS (Apple), please send us an email with your Apple ID email address requesting a TestFlight invite. Android users can install or update directly via the Google Play Store.
Next thing on the roadmap are two new intro and a new channel selection screen.
We didn’t mention the release of v1.0.1 here on our developer blog and for some reason skipped v1.0.2, that’s why were now at v1.0.3. The new intro screens and the new channel selection which already shows what’s playing will be released as v1.0.4. As soon as this version has been tested, we will prepare for leaving beta and finally submitting the app to the regular Apple app store. Stay tuned!
Today a new version of our audio streaming app was released for iOS which is still considered beta and is available via Test Flight. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive an invite.
A new version for Android was also released which is also still marked beta, but directly available via the Google Play Store. Please report any bugs on Github. so that we can finally leave beta behind us and make it available to a wider audience.
This version has been rebuilt and redesigned from the ground up. It is based on Ionic v3. The beautiful redesign was done by Dhyanacandra Prabhu from Slovenia, the app was developed by David Li.
You can now listen to a wide and always fresh range of traditional Vaishnava Kirtan from 24hourkirtan.fm as well as contemporary Vaishnava music productions from our new channel raydiokirtan.fm. The new version now also has 4 different galleries with pictures of Srila Prabhupada, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Vishnu and Krishna.
As this is an open source project you can of course still use the code for your own Internet radio station and fork it on Github in order to adapt it to your needs. If you’re implementing any general features, we would really appreciate if you create a pull request. If you’re a developer and find bugs, you’re also welcome to send patches as pull requests.
Here are some screenshots to give you a first impression.
