FoxCasts is a fully-featured podcast app that lets you enjoy your favorite podcasts at home or on the go.

I developed FoxCasts as a part of Mozilla’s developer engagement program. The rules were simple; they would send you a FirefoxOS device (a Flame in my case) and you would build cool stuff for the platform. The app was received very well by the community and managed to get about 10,000 total installs during the brief time FirefoxOS was alive.

Technologies Used

  • EnyoJS, the JavaScript framework used to build the app.
  • IndexedDB for storing subscriptions, episodes, playlists, and playback progress.
  • FirefoxOS APIs to tie into native device functionality.
