Question(s) of the Week 

Question: From Joshua on FacebookCurious – is there any way of knowing what CFNetworks is on our statistics?”

Answer: CFNetworks is a Framework for developers of iOS apps.  A lot of podcast apps on iOS use it such as, but not limited to Amazon, NPR One, Skipcast and more. Basically, it’s an iOS app that downloaded your episode but not necessarily the Apple Podcasts app itself. In a lot of cases these apps use a ‘user agent’ so we can tell you which app. However, some of them do not always use a separate user agent. They are legitimate downloads but we cannot be identified as a particular app, so we report it as CFNetwork in the stats.
