Podcast Player

Podcast Player


You will find no skins or pretty buttons in this app. It was made to be low overhead and efficient. Ever tried using a slider bar to skip around in a 2 hour podcast? This app uses buttons so you can skip to where you want. The pause/resume is oversize and at the top so you can use it in your car's cup holder. It can delete the mp3 after you have listened to it. It wont lose your position like other podcast players.

This app does not download podcasts. It only plays them.

permissions:
READ_PHONE_STATE - so it can know when to automatically pause for incoming calls.
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - so it can optionally delete the podcast files after you listen to them.
WAKE_LOCK - so your device wont go to sleep in the middle of a long podcast.

- COMING SOON -
$1 version with these extra features
1. play entire folder
2. night mode
3. pause/resume on headphone plug/unplugged
4. force screen to stay portrait or landscape
5. progress bar
6. sleep timer
7. more languages

User reviews of Podcast Player
Not bad, nice and simple for car use. It could use a better file explorer. Once you get to a long file path it gets confusing. Also a "default to" path would be helpful. The giant pause button is great. I like the delete button. A "delete on playback completion would rock. The 20 sec skip back is what i have been looking for. Keep up the good work.

Whoa doggies! simple w/ skip back like watching TV on a DVR, or listening to a book on Audible when the bell rings, dog barks, or other noisey interruption - this wonderfully simple player allows to to SKIP BACK 10 seconds. a much needed but rare feature.

Great simple app Great light and simple app. Very effective for what it claims to do. If you have files you want to play as podcasts, this is a great app for that.

Confused. The free version wouldn't let me open any files and the preview of the paid app let me play a file but wouldn't allow me to do anything else. No options, settings, etc. It's like they're the polar opposite of each other.
