New iOS app TWiTfinity looking for beta testers

Hi all, I was sad to see the demise of the previous TWiT apps, which I used to use primarily to watch the live stream (particularly for Security Now, my fav TWiT network show).

So I’ve started writing my own, and looking for beta testers. You will need to provide me your email address by private message, and the beta version(s) will install using TestFlight.

Currently it only plays the live stream, switchable between video and audio, but supports background audio, picture-in-picture, AirPlay, and remote control.

Based on your feedback, I plan to add an IRC client for the chatroom, schedule display, and/or browsing/playback of pre-recorded show episodes.

Regards,
Simon

Ah, I realised I can share a link so you don’t need to give away your email address. Try this: https://testflight.apple.com/join/20STXG2y

The next feature I’m working on is displaying the schedule below the video.

Feedback welcome.

While this app wouldn’t work for me, I just want to give you kudos for taking the initiative and writing one. Thanks for your hard work.

Do you mean you tried it and it didn’t work?

Or do you mean it’s not suitable for your use-case? Or you have an Android? :joy::joy:

Thanks for the kudos, much appreciated.

Sorry, not suitable for my use case. I’m mainly an Android user and generally watch the live stream on YouTube via my Roku.

I will give it a try. I too was kinda bummed when the other apps ended support.

Downloading it now.

A new beta is out, now displaying the schedule of upcoming shows in YOUR timezone.

Thanks for all the testers so far… and I assume no feedback is good feedback. But would love to hear any requests.

Haha I literally just submitted feedback through Test Flight before I saw this. So far so good. Streamed for a couple hours last night and it just worked. No crashes or bugs.

I downloaded it last night while having dinner at LAX before a red eye. Hoping to give it a better test this week now that I’m home.
