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, voice activation ("OK Google search for Android on Player FM"), Samsung Gear S 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).

    After years of dealing with apps that were unreliable, ad-filled, and had lousy user interfaces (I'm looking at you in particular here Stitcher), this podcast app is absolutely brilliant. On the new release I'm still seeing random playback stoppage when used with my car's JVC Bluetooth radio that other apps I use with it (Pandora and Waze) don't experience. It would also be nice if you had the opt

    O app é muito bom, a única coisa que falta é uma forma de organizar a lista de podcasts da forma que eu quiser, o app só organiza as inscrições por publicações mais recentes.

    I have been looking for an app to download my favorite podcast for offline listening but this took it to a new level with the other podcasts recommended by the app once you plug in your interests. This is a must have app!
