    DoggCatcher Podcast Lite's review

    An old dog with ever new tricks, DoggCatcher is the king of podcast customization

    • Interface is a little cluttered
    • So many options are a little confusing

    "DoggCatcher the PodCatcher"

    THE VERDICT

    DoggCatcher is an oldie but still a goodie, presenting a robust tool for keeping your podcasts and news feeds together, all in one app. Android's first podcatcher has got a ton of options for finding podcasts, including support for RSS feeds and a bunch of podcast directories, giving you plenty of options to find and get what you're looking for.

    The interface can seem a bit daunting to the untrained at first, but if you love have total control over every aspect of your feeds, then you will find customization options here unparalleled by over podcast apps.

    THE PROS

    Adding feeds is simple, and you can add video options as well as audio. Users can manually add a Web site URL, search by podcast name, browse by category, or let the app make recommendations.

    There are numerous personalization features as well, including a sleep timer, automatic sync and download, notifications, and playback order. Once you've got your feeds set up, you can export your settings as a saved file. This way, installing the podcast on another device becomes a one-step process. You can also import existing feeds from Google Reader or an OPML file.

    DogCatcher also boasts an activity community of users, so you can chat with other users and muse about what you've seen and heard.

    THE CONS

    The interface is perhaps a little dated compared to other podcasters on the market, and DoggCatcher is so customizable that the interface can also look a little cluttered, and be a bit of a puzzle to navigate around when you first get going.

    Best podcatcher I have found and absolutely worth the price. It's got all the features I want. It has many advanced features for us power users. My only concern is it's a little hard to use the SD card if you don't know what you are doing, but this is an issue with Android not this app.

    The royal example of how to destroy perfectly good app! Crashing, not downloading, freezing, automatically unsubscribing and WHY ON EARTH WOULD THIS APP NEED PERMISSION TO MAKE PHONE CALLS?!!! Massive fail - removing of my phone!

    Moving an opml file to a new device is far too hard.
