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, Samsung Gear S (#Gear_Rich_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).

Not intuitive Been using this for a month now and still can't figure out how to download an episode manually. What's "play later" anyways? Does that use bandwidth? EDIT--Tried the play later function to act as download, but it ate up my bandwidth when I played those episodes. There's no clear way to see what's been downloaded. This app is just trying to do too much. Sorry, will go with traditional way of listening to podcasts.
