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
- importing subscriptions from OPML
- 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

    Granted, it is a slightly rough-around-the-edges app, and could use some polish, but its simplicity and responsiveness more than make up for it. For those with the "External SD card" problem, just go into a file viewer like ASTRO and move everything unde
