Player FM - Podcasts 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.

The cloud podcast app that syncs across devices, helps you discover great shows, and plays offline. Features: Companion web app; Tablet, Chromecast and watch support; variable-speed playback; intuitive interface; search over 3 million titles and full shownotes; highly configurable. Recently winner of All About Android app arena http://goo.gl/wXjkIW and Android Central's Apps of the Week http://goo.gl/uDzJQW

• 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 works great on phones and tablets, there's a custom Android Wear watch app, and Chromecast integration too.

• Hundreds of topics - You care about more than just "Tech" or "Entertainment", so we go deep and provide 500+ curated channels on topics you care about. Not just "Tech", but "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", etc. Not just "Sport" but "Baseball", "Soccer", etc. You get the idea. And these are *live* channels with episodes ready to be played immediately or saved for later.

• 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 - The app proactively downloads latest episodes for offline playback. And it knows how to clean up after itself, with 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. 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. We're trialling a Gold account with unlimited subscriptions and other benefits (app lets you request trial access, it's free until we launch Gold in 2015).

• Actively developed - We're always working to improve the app. We love your feedback and respond quickly to every mail, so get in touch at android@player.fm if you have any questions or suggestions!

• Hardware integrations: Samsung Gear S (#Gear_Rich_Notifications), enhanced sound on Dolby® Digital Plus™ compatible devices, LG Quick Circle™, Music Boss integration on Android Wear.
