★★★★★

Player FM lets you follow topics, not just shows. Choose from hundreds of topics and receive relevant episodes each day, even if you don't yet know the individual shows. Just like a regular podcast app, you can still subscribe to your favorites and keep them offline ... best of both worlds!

★★★★★

Features:

• Cloud sync on multiple platforms - Like Spotify for podcasts, your settings sync across the cloud, so you won't have to repeat the setup process every time you get a shiny new device. Player FM works great on your phone and tablet, there's a full-featured web app too at https://player.fm. Chromecast is supported and now Android Wear watches too.

• Hundreds of topics - You care about more than just "Tech" or "Entertainment", so we go deep and provide hundreds of curated mix-channels on topics like Android, Game of Thrones, etc. Each combining the latest analysis from the entire podosphere. There's a general Tech channel, but also channels dedicated to Android, Gadgets, Gaming, Programming, Java, many more. Same for Sports, TV, and so on. These are *live* channels with episodes ready to be played immediately or saved for later, and you can subscribe to any show in the channel.

• Quick sync - Player FM's servers receive most shows within minutes of publication. Where a traditional podcatcher requires your phone to constantly check every site for changes, Player FM makes a single call to its server and all updates are retrieved in one go. It's a win for your bandwidth and battery usage.

• Offline - Player FM proactively downloads latest episodes for offline playback. And it knows how to clean up after itself, with old episodes automatically deleted as new ones come in. No more headaches tidying up that pile of unwanted downloads! Episodes you add to your Play Later list will also be auto-downloaded, just like latest subscriptions. Highly configurable - set it to download only on wifi or charging, change limits, etc.

• Full catalogue - Browse all episodes in the publisher's feed and browse full shownotes for each. As well as the usual series search, you can search full shownotes for over 2 million playable episodes!

• Episode management - Resume where you left off, mark as played, and browse play history.

• No lock-in - Your subscriptions are always available as OPML, should you wish to move them to another app. The app also supports OPML import if you're saying hello.

• Attractive interface - Podcast apps get a ton of use each day, so we care a lot about look and feel. There's also an interactive widget and pull-down notification.

• Feature-rich - Speed control (even while streaming), sleep timer, mini + full-screen player

• Always free! No ads, minimal permissions, star up to 50 topics, manage up to 20 subscriptions. Gain more subscriptions by inviting friends (http://player.fm/invites). We're trialling a Gold account with unlimited subscriptions and other benefits.

• Actively developed - We're always working to improve the app. We love your feedback and respond quickly to every mail, so get in touch at android@player.fm if you have any questions or suggestions!

    Used to be that you could open an individual episode and export the mp3 file to your downloads folder. Now Player FM TELLS ME the mpe file is being downloaded to my Downloads folder, but when l look in either Downloads folder, no mp3 file is there.

    This app deserves a 5, but it's useless if it doesn't sync. Been patient for updates but this still hasn't been resolved. Last episode I have is 2 weeks old.

    Unable to share like I have before. Clicks share button and it freezes then shuts down. Other than that never really had any major issues. Please fix. Thanks.
