Zcasts Pro is a pod-catcher that aggregates RSS podcast feeds and allows the user to browse and add (subscribe) to them through your mobile device. From that point the episodes can be downloaded or streamed on the device. The app has a one frame layout for phones and a two frame layout for tablets. The goal is to create a simplified and intuitive pod-catcher.

Discover New Podcasts:
1. Search the large and continuously updated Zcasts database by keywords
2. Manually Enter a feed URL. The app will detect if its a valid podcast.
3. Browse the Zcasts database by category
4. View some of the most popular podcast networks on the internet.

* Create playlists of downloaded episodes
* Download individual episodes and mange them in the Download Manager. Partial Downloads may be resumed at a later time
* Set up an automatic update interval so the freshest podcasts will always be available
* Stream or play audio/video podcasts
* Manage the read/unread status of episodes
* Easily share podcast feeds or individual episodes with friends.

Recent Notes:
-IMPORTANT: if you are experiencing errors when refreshing feeds, please contact me. My contact information is listed below or you can mail me within the app itself. A list of the feeds you added would help. Every feed doesn't follow the exact same protocol, so I have to account for unique occurrences when displaying the information.
-Working on a fix for the jagged look of the progress bar on Nexus 7 tablets. It appears fine on other devices of similar resolution.
-The bug that Jay mentioned below has been fixed
