Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts


We love podcasts, so we made a podcast manager that is full featured, beautiful and simple to use. But don’t take our word for it:

Google Play Editors’ Choice March 2014
"Pocket Casts is a Gorgeous Cross-Platform Mobile Podcast Manager" - Lifehacker
“It looks great, and is near perfect" - Beautiful Pixels

"We've been using v4.5 for a little while now, and it's a damned fine upgrade, and well worth the $3.99 if you've been waiting to give it a shot" - Android Central

AUTO DOWNLOAD: Pick any podcast you like, set it to auto-download while you sleep. Save your cell data for when it matters.

SYNC & BACKUP: Sync your subscriptions, playback and filters between Android and iOS devices, and backup your data to the cloud. You can now drop your phone in a toilet and not lose your podcasts. We dare you.

FILTERS: Want a list of every unplayed, downloaded podcast? Right here. How about a list of video episodes that you haven’t downloaded yet? Easy. Sorting your shows by custom categories? Done.

CHROMECAST: Cast your episodes straight to your TV with a single tap.

STORAGE: Set your episode storage location and how many episodes of a podcast you want to keep. We’ll clean up the rest. News mode added for the contemporaries among us.

VARIABLE SPEED: Play audio all the way from 0.5x to 3.0x, no dodgy plugins to download, no fuss, just pure unadulterated speed.

DESIGN: We've kept a close eye on the Android design guidelines while making your podcasts the focus.

VIDEO & AUDIO: Pocket Casts lets you toggle video podcasts to audio and back again for when you’re on the move.

CONTROL: Control your podcasts from the widget, notification center, lock screen, headphones, Bluetooth, Android Wear and even Pebble with custom skip intervals.

SLEEP TIMER: Fall asleep to your favorite boring podcasts.

THEMES: Dark and light themes, to suit your location and mood.

REFRESH: Instantly refresh all your podcasts before other apps even have a chance to do 1! Our server monitors your podcasts, so your phone doesn't have to.

OPML: Import or export your subscriptions easily to and from our app.

TABLET SUPPORT: It’s an equal opportunity app, with support for both phones and tablets.

SHARING: Share your favorite podcasts, episodes and positions in episodes. Sharing is caring.

DISCOVER: Find great new content with curated featured podcasts, currently trending podcasts, networks and much more.

SUPPORT: Provided via email, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Heck we occasionally even log in to Reddit to say hello. We also have a rocking User Guide for those that prefer a little hand-holding.

There are many more powerful, straight forward features help you make Pocket Casts yours and in case you were wondering, here’s what Pocket Casts DOESN’T have: ads, episode limits, pushy trials, feature bloat or plugins.

It. Just. Works.

Ho Ho Ho. You've all been terribly naughty, so in the lead up to xmas it's more bug fixes for you! Dadd...I mean Santa is keeping all the lollipops for himself!
- App no longer pauses playback on Android Wear disconnect
- Even more auto download fixes
- Fixed another issue that could cause your playback position to get reset

Awwww...don't cry. Please. Ok, one new feature:
- Unread numbers now go to 99! That's like 90 more than they used to. You're welcome kiddies.

I like this app a lot on the OG droid, but haven't yet been able to get it to make a data connection on the Galaxy Nexus

This IS the netcast (ok podcast) app I have been looking for. Easy to use and easy to set up.

Fantastic! Still! It's really good. I set it up to auto download new episodes and they are just there for my commute. Position is auto-synced across all my devices(PC, tablet, phone). Web client is a wonderful add-on. Perfect. Can't wait for the material design update.

A new level Pocket Casts is the best podcasting app on any platform. ShiftyJelly has created something beautiful here, and well deserving of the couple measley dollars they ask. I use this every day, and I love it.

Locks up on chromecast sometimes When I cast to my TV sometimes it'll just keep playing even if stop it from my device. Other then that great app. Fix that and it's 5 stars.

Great except for one glitch. Every now and then podcasts will keep bonding despite my pressing the pause button, then closing the notification. Furthermore when I enter the app and press pause it still doesn't work. I have to go into settings and force close the app
