Custom Sources

I am happy to announce the addition of custom news sources into Hourly News for iOS! For a one-time, in-app purchase of $0.99, you will be able to add unlimited audio podcasts to the app alongside your other sources.

Custom Sources can be re-arranged, skipped, enabled and disabled just like the other ones. Any audio podcast that conforms to the standard podcast format can be added, and Hourly News will do some checking and verifications when you set one up to make sure everything will turn out right. Available today in the latest update to Hourly News, version 1.6.

Hourly News is a simple yet powerful app that plays the most recent news updates from multiple sources with just one tap.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
