Like Spotify or YouTube, your subscriptions sync in the cloud so you can setup once for life and use the app on multiple devices. The cloud model also saves you bandwidth and battery by fetching feeds in the server instead of checking every publisher's server for updates.

Get fresh recommendations on your favorite topics, ready for immediate streaming or download. Our catalogue goes deep, with 500+ niche topics to follow. Not just "Tech", but "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", etc. Follow your favorite TV show, sport, industry, etc.

Subscriptions and Play Later lists proactively downloaded for offline use, with auto-cleanup. All highly configurable.

Browse shownotes for all episodes in the publisher's feed and immediately stream any episode or save it for later even if you're not subscribed. You can even search full shownotes for over 3 million episodes.

Resume where you left off, mark played, browse your history.

Your subscriptions import and export as OPML in case you ever want to move to another app #sadface.

Chromecast, Android Wear, Samsung Gear S (#Gear_Rich_Notifications), enhanced sound on Dolby® Digital Plus™ compatible devices, LG Quick Circle™, Music Boss integration on Android Wear, Podlove Subscribe button.

Manage up to 20 subscriptions, enable Gold trial directly in the app for unlimited subscriptions + other benefits (Gold launches later this year but you can activate the trial now).

We're always working to improve the app. We love your feedback and respond quickly to every mail, so get in touch at if you have any questions or suggestions! We're also active and respond on Twitter, Google+, Facebook. Join our Google+ beta community for news and early access to new features (currently Play Later re-ordering).

    Just switched from stitcher as that app was getting slow and the design is outdated. One feature request I'd like to make is to let users manually drag and drop organize the subscriptions list and also let us make folders to organize our subscriptions list.

    Works well, does what you want it to, looks good too. No complaints yet. ;)

    Pretty good so far. But seems to be a real battery hog. Not sure about the 20 podcast limit without gold as I haven't seen pricing info yet. Still seems that there are some weird bugs. Sometimes it plays the next podcast in the show I am listening to, sometimes it moves to another podcast.

    Simple interface, access to lots of podcasts. Can't go wrong.
