Player FM Podcast App Reviews

    A new podcast app contender, who does things a bit differently. It is by no means the best podcast app, but it really has potential. Google+ sign in and saved subscriptions across the app and desktop version makes it an interesting service.

    selsine: I wanted to mention Player FM. I'm a big podcast listener and I usually listen to each podcast that I subscribe to, but this is a problem if I subscribe to too many. What I like about this app is that it surfaces new podcasts that I can listen to without having to subscribe. I like being able to browse the current selection of Android podcasts without having to subscribe to all of them. Great for washing the dishes with your Nexus 7 near by.

    Here is a great app I've been using for about 4 weeks since I've gotten into podcast. I love this app, the ease of use, the ability to auto sync with my podcast that I am subscribed to. I have not had any problems whatsoever with this app. Great for any podcast people out there.

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.
