IOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod) and Android Apps
We now have apps for IOS and Android devices! These (for now) do not play our SHOUTcast stream (live or pre-recorded shows), but do play all of our released shows (and bonus content). Unfortunately, they are not free as the developer charges a mandatory $1.99 to install the apps. Think of it more as a donation to the show as half of that does come back to us. The apps allow you to have access to all of our shows (including bonus content only found on the apps like future “preshows”, “aftershows”, early releases of podcasts, photos, etc) and best of all, unlike many audio players it should work in the background as you open other programs.
The IOS app is received through Podcast Box, which is a FREE app you must download and install first. Then launch Podcast Box, go to “Categories”, do a search (at the top after dragging down) for LightningRod and there you will be able to purchase and install the app. To access it after install, look for the Podcast Box icon and within it will be LightningRod Radio Network – and any other podcasts you subscribe to through Podcast Box.
The Android app can only be purchased though the Amazon Appstore (click here to see a pretty helpful video). This also is a free download and will link to your online Amazon account. After installing Amazon Appstore, search it for LightningRod and there you will be able to purchase and install the app. This app, unlike the IOS app, will have it’s own icon on your Android device – but otherwise operates the same as the IOS app.
