Scout FM adds CarPlay to enable podcast radio on your commute

Most podcast apps generally work the same way. You find the shows you want to subscribe to, new episodes are retrieved, and then you listen to them.

Scout FM is creating a new type of app for podcasts with a different approach. It’s a podcast radio service that streams a tailored selection of the podcasts and radio shows. When you first launch the app, it shows the top stations. It includes Brain Food, Daily News, True Crime, Progressive/Conservative Talk Radio, and Business Builder. They have countless other stations as well.

For those who don’t know me very well, I am an unapologetic Nintendo fanboy. Almost everything they produce is a masterpiece to me. I was even a fan of the poorly-received Wii U and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might be the best video game I’ve ever played. So what’s my take on Nintendo’s newly released Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS so far? It’s only been out for a few hours (one day sooner than expected) and it’s already great although there are a few key downsides to expect.

Yoink is a utility available on the Mac App Store that I find to be extremely useful. When you begin dragging a file on a Mac with Yoink installed, the utility’s interface appears on the side of the screen. Yoink serves as a temporary holding area for files on your Mac as you move them between apps, folders, and wherever else in the Finder.

There are few apps that I consider to be must-haves on OS X, but Yoink is certainly one of them. Moving files around the Mac is easier with Yoink installed, especially if you make the most of using full screen apps. Watch our video walkthrough inside to see how. expand full story
