Podcast discovery at it's finest from a neat, multi-platform app

THE VERDICT

You know there are a heap of great podcasts out there just waiting for your ears: but with so many to go out, discovering great new ones isn't always that easy. That's where Player FM earns its stripes, helping guide you to the best podcasts out there right now, based on much more narrow and niche topics than your average podcaster.

As well as content tailored to your tastes, this well-designed and sleek little app also features cloud syncing, plus you can launch podcasts right from your Android Wear watch. The app promises to stay free for forever, without ads, and you can also you can upgrade to the Gold plan, launching later this year, for extra goodies including sync of play position and history.

THE PROS

Player FM differentiates itself from the rest of the pack with its heavy focus on podcast discovery. rather than serach by broad topics like "Tech", searches can be narrowed down to "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", and even specifics like "Iron man 3".

Like any good podcast app, the service saves your subscriptions in the cloud so you can get them on other devices, gives you the option to stream podcasts from the web or download them and listen to them locally, lets you choose whether to download at any time or only over Wi-Fi, and features show notes and links for each episode. It also boasts a homescreen and lock screen widget.

THE CONS

It's quite heavy, so make sure you download on Wi-Fi. Some users have reported crashing and lagging, but it worked just dandy for us.
