    DoggCatcher Podcast Lite's review

    An old dog with ever new tricks, DoggCatcher is the king of podcast customization

    • Podcasts and news feeds together
    • Broad search options
    • Loaded with personalization features
    • DoggCatcher community
    • Chromecast support
    • Interface is a little cluttered
    • So many options are a little confusing

    "DoggCatcher the PodCatcher"


    DoggCatcher is an oldie but still a goodie, presenting a robust tool for keeping your podcasts and news feeds together, all in one app. Android's first podcatcher has got a ton of options for finding podcasts, including support for RSS feeds and a bunch of podcast directories, giving you plenty of options to find and get what you're looking for.

    The interface can seem a bit daunting to the untrained at first, but if you love have total control over every aspect of your feeds, then you will find customization options here unparalleled by over podcast apps.


    Adding feeds is simple, and you can add video options as well as audio. Users can manually add a Web site URL, search by podcast name, browse by category, or let the app make recommendations.

    There are numerous personalization features as well, including a sleep timer, automatic sync and download, notifications, and playback order. Once you've got your feeds set up, you can export your settings as a saved file. This way, installing the podcast on another device becomes a one-step process. You can also import existing feeds from Google Reader or an OPML file.

    DogCatcher also boasts an activity community of users, so you can chat with other users and muse about what you've seen and heard.


    The interface is perhaps a little dated compared to other podcasters on the market, and DoggCatcher is so customizable that the interface can also look a little cluttered, and be a bit of a puzzle to navigate around when you first get going.

    The royal example of how to destroy perfectly good app! Crashing, not downloading, freezing, automatically unsubscribing and WHY ON EARTH WOULD THIS APP NEED PERMISSION TO MAKE PHONE CALLS?!!! Massive fail - removing of my phone!

    Moving an opml file to a new device is far too hard.

    I used this app for a year or so before getting really frustrated with the organization. The app is not particularly intuitive. I found myself fumbling with it a lot more than necessary. The creators would benefit from a good UX designer to streamline the feel.

    Best podcast player on Android. Not sure if it's available, but the only thing I'd like is to save my podcast list so I can download it onto a new device. That happens rarely though, so not that big of a deal.
