    A simple app for listening to your favorite podcasts

    • Easy to use
    • The design and usability could be better

    "All my usual podcasts"


    ACast is one of the first apps for podcasts. It's an app for radio podcast lovers who want to listen to their favorite programs, without interruptions and as simply as possible.

    The app lets you add your all treasured podcasts to your lists, and then adjust the settings to make sure you get all the updates. You'll actually forget the meaning of boredom with ACast!


    The basic functions work well and the app is easy to use; it just needs to be set up the first time. Once in, you can search for whatever you want and use the filters to refine your results, so that you get exactly what you're looking for.


    The design and the usability are a bit shaky, and there are a bunch of other similar apps with much better interfaces and overall development. Unfortunately, it's not the best option in its class.

    Used to like this app, even purchased the key for it, however it appears to have been abandoned. The searches no longer work, and some of the functions do not work on newer android builds. Too bad. Closest replacement I found is Pocket Casts. Of course that means buying another app.

    Great when it works. Often bugs out though. I just have to delete and reinstall it intermittently to keep it working. When it works though, nothing comes close. Great features. Downloading. Saving for later. Feeds that update automatically. All you need. When it works! Worth it. Just though

    I no longer recommend this app unless you are using old hardware. Upgrading my hardware has made this app impossible to use. It has no menu button in software. The is no hardware menu button on any new phones. Please update this app for modern hardware.

    I'm a longtime user, but with KitKat I can't save to external storage and my phone's internal is running out of space! Search feature also needs updating.

    Randomly stops play or switches to a different podcast. Searching to add new podcasts doesn't work, you have to give it thr exactly rss url. I get podcasts with added Acast content yet I've never seen how to access it.

    It worked great until the latest KitKat update.
