Did you know only 2% of users actually read App Store descriptions? Were happy youre one of the rare two percenters giving Chameleon a shot.
There are a few things that Chameleon does differently.
1. Chameleon splits up an episodes audio into 15-second chunks. These chunks are placed in a looooong vertical list that you can navigate in.
2. You can annotate at any of these 15-second chunks. Annotations can be for yourself or to a friend. When you send a friend an annotation, they receive this episode on their Chameleon app.
3. Chameleon keeps track of the chunks you listen to and visualizes which chunks youve already listened to.
4. Everything is saved in the cloud so if you have two phones then podcast progress in one phone show up in the other.
