The cloud-first podcast discovery app that "makes podcasts look cool again" in the words of GigaOM. Explore over 300 hand-picked mix-channels on specific topics (e.g. Cinema, Gadgets, Baseball, Learn English) or search for your favorite shows. Play right now or hit Play Later to store interesting episodes offline - like Pocket for podcasts!

Your subscriptions sync across devices - no need to re-add them for each device, and great peace of mind for anyone who's ever left their phone in the back of a taxi (just saying). Our servers do the fetching and mixing, saving you bandwidth and precious battery life, and syncing in seconds, not minutes. Offline access is child's play too, thanks to our flexible Auto-Downloads feature.

Player FM is free with minimal permissions - no location, contacts, bank balance requested here. Just the basics we need to make your podcasting experience rock.

"Attractive UI...What this new app really brings to the table is the way it presents new content to podcast listeners"

Features:

• Stream or sync...your choice. It's simple to stream endlessly from online sources just like a radio (think Pandora or Stitcher), and we support syncing so you can play offline, anytime, with plenty of options (download limits, wifi-only, custom folder, etc). Playing is a breeze too - view progress of each show, resume where you left off, and hide completed episodes.

• Polished interface optimised for tablets as well as phones lets you swipe through shows like a magazine. And also a full-featured web app at http://player.fm. Search, browse, play, and manage your subscriptions from any browser.

• Search over 30,000 feeds and add more by URL. OPML works too, so you can import your subscriptions from iTunes, BeyondPod, PocketCasts, etc. It works the other way too - you can easily export to OPML and switch to another app.

• Topics go deep. There's not just a "TV" channel, but dozens of channels dedicated to "Mad Men", "Game of Thrones", etc. Not just "Tech" but "Android", "Gadgets", "Java", and more. Our experts organise sub-genres of sports, arts, technology, language-learning, etc. These aren't static catalogues, but *live* playable channels mixing episodes. Follow topics and individual series (from NPR, BBC, ABC, CBC, etc.)

• Browse full descriptions and share with other apps. See what's new and hit Play Later to keep any episode offline.

• Supports Android Share feature so you can send shows to friends and other apps.

• Dive into the full history of any series, not just your subscriptions; if it's in their feed, you can play it on Player FM.

• Play in the background and control via homescreen and lock-screen player widgets, pull-down notifications. Bluetooth too.

* Mark All Played and multi-selection.

• 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.

Planned:

* Built-in speed control (soon!)
* Chromecast
* Episode + Play Later sync
