Manage your favorite programs and discover new ones
Podcast Addict is an app for podcast fans. It allows you to manage your favorite apps, discover new ones and add the best ones to your playlists.
The app has everything you'd expect to find, and you can import your files from iTunes too, which is hunky-dory if you used to listen to podcasts before getting the app.
The app is just perfect for organizing your playlists and listening to your fave programs with a decent sound quality.
Perhaps the design and the easy of use are not as good as some similar apps that we've tried before, but this one is still well worth your time.
Subscribe to your favorite podcasts using the embedded networks (5by5, ABC, AfterBuzz TV, BBC, CNN, Carolla Digital, ESPN, FrogPants, LibriVox, Nerdist, NPR, Revision3, Smodcast, Ted Talks, Twit, NPO, ...).
You can also import your podcasts subscriptions from an iTunes or Google Reader OPML file, or use the embedded search engine to browse Podcasts Addict (200K podcasts) or iTunes databases (250K podcasts).
Finally you can also copy and paste your podcasts RSS feeds in order to subscribe.
The app displays a small ad banner at the bottom of the screen.
If you want to support Podcast Addict and/or disable the ad banner, you can buy Podcast Addict - Donate app

Really like that you can download and listen offline.
This is the best pod cast ap i have uaed. Covers a lot but not all bbc podcasts. Allows downloading to save on data. Excellent
I wish podcast addict was compatible with gpodder.net but still the best podcast app
My tablet came with a podcast app preinstalled; I wish it had been this one. The bloatware couldn't find a single podcast I listen to (and spams me with crap); this one has never had any trouble, on either count. As I stated above, Podcast Addict just works... and works well.
Great app. Works like no other.
All the episodes of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History!!! Finally!!!! O and it works fine w/o network!!!!
