iOS Native Beta

Spooks has become increasingly popular since its launch in 2014. Therefore, we have decided to give the platform more substance. Firstly, we have recently made the progression from a hybrid app to native. So Spooks is now optimised for all devices, which gives us more opportunities for to develop new features.

During this process we also made many improvements to the app; the interface and user-experience have become much more straightforward. We’ve said goodbye to some old things and new, exciting features have taken their place. Meanwhile, it was important that existing and popular features continue to work smoothly.

What has changed:

  • The in-app Spotify player has been completely revised.
  • The library, settings and profile have been entirely updated.
  • The user reviews are now based on stars, not thumbs.
  • The search function now makes finding audiobooks easier.
  • The book description is first shown as a short version.
  • Authors and narrators are now displayed more compactly.
  • The ‘Audiobook of the Week’ has moved to the ‘Discovery’ page.
  • Several titles are now displayed in list view.
  • The thumbs in the detail view have been replaced by hearts.
  • Tickets have been replaced by emails.

What is new:

  • The Spotify Player now works across all systems (CarPlay, AirPlay, Apple Watch, etc.)
  • The sleep timer from iOS now communicates with Spooks.
  • The iPad version adapts the iPhone design.
  • There is now a ‘Continue listening’ playlist.
  • You can now select more than one content language and prioritise them.
  • Users are now required to create a user account or to sign in.
