GigaOm: "Makes podcasts look cool again"
• Cloud sync on multiple platforms - Like Spotify for podcasts, your settings sync across the cloud, so you won't have to repeat the setup process every time you get a shiny new device. Responsive interface design for tablets and phones of all sizes, watch app featured in Google Play's Android Wear collection, and Chromecast integration too.
• Organised into hundreds of detailed topics - Not just "Tech", but "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", etc. Not just "Sport" but "Baseball", "Soccer". Your favorite TV shows, language learning, much more covered. Subscribe to shows or immediately play episodes on each topic.
• Quick sync - Our servers receive most shows within minutes of publication. Where a traditional podcatcher requires your phone to constantly check every site for changes, the app makes just a single call to the server. All updates are retrieved in one go ... a win for your bandwidth and battery use.
• Offline - Proactively downloads latest episodes for offline playback. Automatic cleanup, old episodes automatically deleted as new ones come in. No more headaches tidying up that pile of unwanted downloads! Episodes you add to your Play Later list will also be auto-downloaded, just like latest subscriptions and it acts as a play queue too (Play Later now supports re-ordering in latest beta). Highly configurable-set it to download only on wifi or charging, change limits, etc
• Full catalogue - Browse all episodes in the publisher's feed and browse full shownotes for each. As well as the usual series search, you can search full shownotes for over 2 million playable episodes!
• Episode management - Resume where you left off, mark as played, and browse play history.
• No lock-in - Your subscriptions are always available as OPML, should you wish to move them to another app. OPML import works too so you can bring your subscriptions from iTunes and other podcasting apps.
• Attractive Material Design interface - We care a lot about look and feel. There's also an interactive widget and pull-down notification.
• Play features - Speed control (even while streaming), sleep timer, mini+full-screen player
• Always free! No ads, minimal permissions, star up to 50 topics, manage up to 20 subscriptions. Gold trial available with unlimited subscriptions and other benefits (free Gold launch in 2015).
• Actively developed and supported - We're always working to improve the app. We love your feedback and respond quickly to every mail, so get in touch at [email protected]
if you have any questions or suggestions! We're also active and respond on Twitter, Google+, Facebook.
