CLOUD SYNC ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS
Like Spotify or YouTube, your subscriptions sync in the cloud so you can setup once for life and use the app on multiple devices. The cloud model also saves you bandwidth and battery by fetching feeds in the server instead of checking every publisher's server for updates.

FOLLOW TOPICS, NOT JUST SHOWS
Get fresh recommendations on your favorite topics, ready for immediate streaming or download. Our catalogue goes deep, with 500+ niche topics to follow. Not just "Tech", but "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", etc. Follow your favorite TV show, sport, industry, etc.

OFFLINE-READY
Subscriptions and Play Later lists proactively downloaded for offline use, with auto-cleanup. All highly configurable.

FULL BACKLOG
Browse shownotes for all episodes in the publisher's feed and immediately stream any episode or save it for later even if you're not subscribed. You can even search full shownotes for over 3 million episodes.

PLAY HISTORY
Resume where you left off, mark played, browse your history.

LEAVE ANYTIME
Your subscriptions import and export as OPML in case you ever want to move to another app #sadface.

WORKS GREAT WITH ...
Chromecast, Android Wear, voice activation ("OK Google search for Android on Player FM"), Samsung Gear S notifications, enhanced sound on Dolby® Digital Plus™ compatible devices, LG Quick Circle™, Music Boss integration on Android Wear, Podlove Subscribe button.

FREE FOREVER WITH NO ADS
Manage up to 20 subscriptions, enable Gold trial directly in the app for unlimited subscriptions + other benefits (Gold launches later this year but you can activate the trial now).

Great for those long car rides 12+ hours of driving per week gives me lots of podcast time.

Regrettably I have to switch I really like the app, but it doesn't support a feed that I pay to hear. Shame

I want to like this app so much... I really do.... And it is actually beginning to grow on me. I know a lot of people start an app and almost immediately write a positive review - not grumpy me - I have been using this app for about a week. My review consists of one star because it is pretty, two more because of its impressive tech support, and the fourth star because it is beginning to grow on me. I really wish this app was more visual in its setup since the UI is graphic intensive, but perhaps space is the issue when it comes to additional graphics. Weighing 13.84 MB, this app eats a chunk of my device storage (about 60% the size of my launcher) and can't be moved to the sdcard, but the podcasts can be stored on the card. I am giving it another week.
