Podax is a podcast downloader and and player. Email dan@axelby.com with problems or comments so I can make Podax the best podcast app on the Play Store.

Features include:
- keeping a list of subscriptions
- downloading new podcasts when they are available
- widgets for easy controls
- lock screen and notification controls to make it even easier to pause and resume
- discover popular podcasts from iTunes or gpodder.net
- syncs podcasts and episodes with gpodder.net
- open source development at Github

Here's what Podax does with the permissions that it requests:
Internet: Updates subscriptions and downloads podcasts
Read and write to external storage: Stores downloaded podcasts and subscription images
Get and authenticate accounts, read sync stats, read and write sync settings, use credentials: Sync with gpodder.net
Access network state: Gives you the option to only download podcasts while you're on Wi-Fi to avoid using all of your data
Boot notification: Sets up the updater and downloader when the phone starts so you don't open Podax after rebooting to find out that it didn't update in a while

Recently changed in this version

Version 7.06 fixes a crash bug.

Version 7.0 includes ads and a working speed knob.
A new audio player fixes the speed knob. Thanks to dslamnig on Elance for writing the code that speeds up the audio without changing the pitch.
An ad will show up when you change screens and can be disabled in the preferences. If they're too intrusive, let me know. Ad revenue will help support Podax much better in the future.

    Great Open Source project. I would really like to see some control over downloads, to start with; being able to choose what folder downloads go to.

    I switched to podax after Google Listen was sunset. This app is great, it has everything I need. Easily would give it 5 stars if it did not crash so frequently.

    Podax has an impressive feature list, but daily usage is clunky and bug prone. Managing episodes in subscriptions is awkward. Also when the cell or wifi connection is spotty, Podax's background service hangs and freezes the app. These are bugs that could be fixed, but overall the app looks very dated and is not so user friendly.

    Long time gpodder user. App syncs with smart phone, Web and with recent updates is remarkable to use. Very well done.

    It's the old version but I preferred it.
