Podcasts continue to be a popular form of broadcasting even though the era of the iPod goes way back.
Obtaining podcasts can be easy for iOS users yet this isn’t necessarily the case for Android phone users up until now.
So, here are 3 podcast apps for Android phones:
#1: Pocket Casts
Considered to be an app that is easy to use with its tile-formatted layout, its overall interface is an excellent example of Material Design with both a finger-friendly layout as well as a slide-out side menu. The main menu is probably one of the app’s best design elements.
You can use the featured or trending sections to find podcasts if you are new while search and the category filter if you’re looking for a particular podcast.
#2: Player FM
Without a doubt, this podcast app is well-designed and bears similarity to Pocket Casts. The app itself offers a full set of features and which includes using it on your desktop as well. Of course, for this you will have to create an account but the option of Google sign-in makes it easier than ever. Given that it is free of cost, it is an excellent option if you are a light podcast users and aren’t ready to your favorite paid app just yet.
Costing $2.99, DogCatcher is an excellent option for not only tracking down but also discovering new or previously undiscovered podcasts. While it breaks up the discovery section into news, audio or video, the easiest way for one to find podcasts is from the Subscribe section right from the slide out menu.
Not only can you set a sleep timer that will cause the podcast to fade away when you sleep but it also allows you to create as many categories as you’d like so as to keep your list of subscriptions neat.
