Pocket Casts is a paid app which is very clean, simple, and easy to use. It lists a lot of popular feeds. I've been using it for a few years and I have no complaints.
You might be using Google Play Music (or any other podcast app) for podcasts
You should be using Pocket Casts for podcasts.
I recommend Pocket Casts on Android. Best couple of bucks I ever spent, has most every podcast published and syncs across devices/pc's link on play store
I started working last year and the daily commute coming and going to work by bus has been vastly improved with this app.
Variable speed and cutting silence means I can listen to all my podcasts per week and I can keep sane while waiting for a bus or riding a packed bus.
Awesome app, I've had playback issues maybe twice since I installed it but they were fixed immediately. Good customer support too. (Motorola device specific)
I bought the web version aswell and I don't really use it that much but it's useful when you need it.
Hands down my favorite podcast app. Active development and very responsive to any bug reports, this app is the flagship of Google's MD ambition. I remember they took a while to implement the new design when Google launched it, but wow did they knock it out of the park from day one. None of that left slide out drawer + FAB nonsense.
Love Pocket Casts. One of the most used apps on my phone. Really clean and slick design. Especially like how the the interface colour automatically adjusts to match the album art of the current pod cast.
Also, I had no idea they release web access. Definitely be using that
Two really really great apps:
Give PocketCasts a try, costs a few bucks but well worth it. Comes with a online tool that you can listen to podcasts from a web browser but its not free.
As an alternative check out Pocket Casts. I haven't used AntennaPod so I can't say it's better or worse, it's just what I personally use and I'm just throwing another option out there for you.
Pocketcasts is probably the best podcast app for Android. It has pretty much every podcast you can think of. You won't be disappointed.
Absolutely Pocket Casts.
CastBox is a good free alternative.
For years I used PocketCasts ($3.99) but have recently tried out Podcast Addict ($2.99 for no ads) after reading about it here and I really, really like it. The ability to also stream radio stations pushed it over the top for me. It also allows you to search iTunes for podcasts.
For podcasts Pocket Casts: [link]

Marvel Unlimited is available on Android as well
I'm not sure for Craigslist, but I'm sure there are some apps.
The best podcast app for Android is generally agreed to be Pocket Casts. You can set up auto downloads over wifi for as many different podcasts as you'd like. You can also set the auto cleanup feature which removes any episodes past a certain point ("Keep latest 10 episodes").
to that list.
I would strongly recommend podcasts- there are a ton of them out there that are free in every subject you could think of. I'd use PocketCasts to download them ahead of time from your home internet connection so it doesn't use any data.
I received my Pixel 2XL this week and since I am addicted to the Podcast media immediately tried my Pocket Cast app. It works excellent. I went ahead and upgraded to the paid version.
What the hell is wrong with you? If you think you'd use it, buy it. If you don't, don't buy it.
All you had to do to find out it was paid was click on the damn play store link in the OP's link: [link]
I've never used any as I find the Iphone one works fine for me but I've seen a LOT of love around for Pocket Casts. For both iOS and Android.
They're like talk radio shows you download from the internet. You can subscribe to them using mobile apps — I use Pocket Casts — or copy them to an MP3 player from your computer. The best running-related one is Marathon Talk (best in my opinion, it's rather Anglo-centric so may appeal less to trans-Atlantic people).
If you listen to podcasts and haven't shelled out for Pocket Casts, then your life is about to get so much better. You need to do it right now.
It's among the best $4 I've ever spent.
If you're an android user, I suggest Pocketcasts. It'll cost you about $3-5, but it's a solid app.
I second all of the podcasts that /u/notleonardodicaprio suggested (except Bill Burr's, because I haven't tried that one), and would also add:
Pocket Casts is the highly-acclaimed podcast app for its Material Design, packed features, and top support. It can do all of these things you're looking for.
Our feed is soooo damn old it took us a bit. But a bunch of you have been asking for it.
I'm sticking with Pocket Casts on Android, and Overcast on iOS for now, but let me know how you like it if you try out Google Play Music for podcasts!
Auf dem Weg zur Arbeit, mit dem Handy (Pocket Casts auf Android, klare Empfehlung geht raus!) über BT im Auto.
Ansonsten auf langen Autofahrten (pendel über 500km) und wenn ich zu Fuß unterwegs bin mit Kopfhörern.
any podcast app. a lot of people like pocket casts on android (myself included) which is a steal at $4, but even the stock google play app can play RSS feeds
Another vote for Pocket Casts here. OP, you are describing features that Pocket Casts offers. Also if you like listening on a computer as well it offers cross platform syncing for a really small fee. I can't remember because I bought it a while ago and it was so small but oh so worth it.
Daily podcast listener. Both hands up for Pocket Casts
Spend the 4 bucks or whatever. It's got every feature you want and it's beautiful.
I like it, and use it sometimes, but... I can't seem to find a way to launch Google podcasts without voice control. Sometimes I just want to tap the screen but don't want to type out a command to get there.
Google Play Music has podcasts, but it's not the same as Google Podcasts?... it all has me confused, so I usually just end up using PocketCasts ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Edit: I found out how to add Google Podcasts to your homescreen! Not just a shortcut to the one you added Google Assistant to Play.
I cannot recommend pocketcasts enough, the best podcast app by a long shot, it will cost you $4, but totally worth it if you listen to podcasts on a regular basis
The app Pocketcasts has a voice boosting feature. You turn it on in single podcast and click to apply it to the rest. It was essential when I was using the 6p.
Det är några podcasts jag gillar att lyssna på.
Kan även rekommendera grym app i mitt tyckte för det också - Pocket Casts.
Google Play podcasts is [IMO] not a great podcatcher. The problem with it is that they have to specifically allow you onto their platform. I've seen some people go weeks after submitting and never hearing back. Meanwhile most (not all) other podcatchers allow you to use their curated lists but also bring in your own feeds.
I'm assuming you're on android, in which case I'd recommend Pocket Casts. I've been using it for over four years now and it's fantastic. Pocket Casts does cost $4 but if you want a free podcatcher I've heard good things Podcast Addict, I've personally never used it so I can't vouch for it whole-heartedly.
Pocketcasts is great, well supported
I think it's a paid app..
I looked it's $4, totally worth it though, been using it for years
PocketCasts, it isn't free but soo much better than Podcast Addict. It has material design, auto download, filters and tons more. It really is worth the price.
I'll be sticking with Pocket Casts which is fantastic. I've had my fingers burnt before by Google changing/ceasing services.
Like MarxN said, I like Google Play Music a lot but if you just want to listen to podcasts, you might be better off using Pocket Casts or some other app
I am a fan of Fragmented. I know that there is a new one I've seen on Pocket Casts called Material, but I haven't checked it out yet
If you are looking for an awesome podcast app, I've had Pocket Casts for a while now and love it. Probably one of the most polished apps out there.
a lot of people enjoy pocket casts which is a steal at $4 if you listen to podcasts with any relative frequency
but really you can use any podcast app to listen to IIWY, you don't need a specific app to access a specific show. even google play music (which I believe comes preloaded on all android phones) can play podcasts
It is a 1 time fee, but I really like Pocketcasts. Good clean interface, and easy to find podcasts.
I think it is another pay for feature, but you can also continue/pick up where you left off, and listen in your browser as well.
I hope that helps!
1 bag is ~2000 kcal per meal, and I suppose you can divide that up anyway you want. If you divide it into four meals, that's one cup each. I've seen elsewhere people using a thermos with icecubes to keep their mix cool, but I haven't tried it.
7 days = 28 - 500 kcal meals, OR 21 ~666 kcal meals.
How long does 40km of public transit take you? If you haven't already, now is a good time to get into podcasts to pass the time. Pocket Casts is my go-to for this sort of stuff.
Pocketcasts has been a godsend for this. It also syncs across devices which is pretty great. I used to use Beyondpod as a free one but the recent reviews state it's gone to shit so I don't have a free suggestion :(
If you use the Pocket Casts app (for iOS or Android) you can link to a specific moment in a podcast
> When you compare Google Podcasts to popular podcasting apps for Android such as Pocket Casts (paid)or Podcast Addict you will notice that offer better functionality.
Can't even grammar right haha.
I find Podcasts to be fine personally. Not as robust, but it does what it needs to well and is pretty. I've found some new podcasts that I quite like with Google's suggestions too so I'm not mad.
Well you can get the Pocket Cast app. It costs a few dollars but it's the best podcast app I've ever had. Let's you subscribe to podcasts you listen regularly or let's you find new ones by genre, language, region, etc, has notifications on new episodes (if you want), it can also pre-download your podcast as soon as it's available (if you want), or you can download it by hand. Or stream it. You can have it automatically delete downloaded podcasts when you've listened to it entirely, to save space. You can tell it where you want it to download (phone or SD card). You can skip ahead or back by a customizable amount of time (10, 20, 30 seconds, whatever). It's great for skipping long intros or mid-podcast music you don't care for. Also rollback 5-10 seconds because you missed a joke, etc.
It also lets you create an account. Highly recommended because it then synchronises where you were when you stopped listening, so you can continue streaming/listening on another device, like the tablet at home or on PC. And if your phone dies, no biggie, you just put your account back in on the new phone and it'll tell you where you last stopped listening. Really nice stuff.
On iOS Overcast is great.
For Android Pocket Casts is fantastic.

Wolfram Alpha ([link])
I'd recommend you try Pocket Casts. It's frequently on the top of "Best Android Podcast clients" lists, and Grey's favorite, Overcast, even linked to them from within their app.
Yeah there is now, sorry. Forgot to enable it this time
BTW you should totally get a podcatcher (my favourites for iOS and Android)
Pocket cast - Paid (recommended,easy to use)
Podcast addict- I use this one
Link. It costs a little bit of money, but it's worth it. You can also download podcasts normally exclusive to iTunes, and you can sync it up to Play Music to play it through that app.
Eu uso o Pocket Cast. Nao e gratis mas para mim valeu o investimento. Eu configurei ele para baixar episodios novos, apagar antigos (voce escolhe quantos manter), so baixar no WiFi e quando estiver carregando (geralmente de noite enquanto eu durmo). Eu provei uns gratis, nao fiquei satisfeito, fiz uma pesquisa, achei esse, gostei muito.
Kan för er som har Android rekommendera appen Pocket Casts.
Snygg design, mycket poddar även på svenska och den tillåter dig att ladda ner avsnitt så du inte behöver streama och ta slut på din surfpott. Kostar drygt en tjuga men det tycker jag definitivt att den är värd.
Edit: Verkar tydligen finnas på iOs också. Kan dock inte uttala mig om hur den är där.
I use the Pocket Casts Android app, and here are some of the features:
So, for your use-case, you could subscribe to podcasts on his phone, and the phone would only download episodes while on Wi-Fi. I have not used the synchronization feature of Pocket Casts, but you may be able to kinda-sorta remote control by synchronizing settings on the web platform with the Android device.
I do this too with an app called PocketCasts. It saves where I am across devices, pauses with "Alexa, pause." and pushes it back to my phone when I disconnect the bluetooth if I need to go out.
The dev might do an Alexa Skill later on, but nothing official's been said.
I use Pocket Casts on Android. [link] that's my stats since they added stats because I bought this app years ago.
[link] link to the app for anyone interested.
Not him but, Pocketcasts is by far the best podcast app I've used. I highly recommended it. The price is a bit hefty for an app ($3.99) but it's well worth it!
Pocket Casts, TOTALLY worth the $3.99. Best podcast app out there.
I took some phone screenshots of ABGT inside the Pocket Casts app...
I don't get why devs don't put more emphasis on the changelog. I love it when devs use it as a means of communication with their users. Pocket Casts does it best:
> Welcome to 2017! The year of...well...it's a bit early to tell, isn't it? This new build comes to you with fixes for things like the Up Next list and dragging filters around as well as some new tiny (but welcome) features like the custom sleep timer time being remembered. You're welcome that one person who keeps emailing us about that. No really. You are. Please stop ;)
It's informative and it doesn't read like T&C texts. Brilliant!
Not a chance. Started out with Season 1 of RvB, quit on that after watching Season 12 I think because it just stopped being entertaining. AH was useful once upon a time, for actually getting achievements. Now it's background noise while I do house work, at best. I don't even know what all they produce anymore because I guess I'm just not much of a fan these days. Haven't been to the main site in years at this point.
The Patch is a good game news show, it's entertaining and informative. The last couple where they've gone off the rails into...I don't even know what were annoying but still worth listening to. I'm getting mighty sick of those 2-3 minute ad reads though. Thirty seconds, I'll listen too. I even started using dollar shave club after hearing about it from them. Now, I customized the skip button on my podcast app (Pocket Casts, I highly recommend it for Android or for iOS) to jump forward two minutes and 30 seconds so I can skip the whole thing.
The main podcast is good. They had a few rough months the past couple of years but as long as they have a couple of the old guys on there it's still good. The new people can entertain 12 year olds on YouTube very well. A guy pushing 30 while driving to work...not really at all.
Pocket Casts is a great podcast app that allows you to stream or download the podcasts for later playback. It has an Auto Download feature, which will automatically download new episodes of podcasts you select as they are released. Has a very useful "Discover" feature for finding podcasts as well.
You can also import and export your settings, so if you move to a new phone, you don't have to rebuild your subscriptions.
I've been messing around with AutoMate. It is similar to Android Auto, but can run on your phone. All you need to do is join the Google+ community and become a tester.
Check out Pocketcasts if you're interested in podcasts.
Also, if you have a lot of music on your computer/itunes/etc. you should upload it to Play Music for free. They currently allow up to 55,000 songs.
2) You can't really. They do allow for youtube to run in the background but I think that was only if you are subscripted to Google music or something like that. There was an app that allowed for background playback but it needed root (and possibly xposed?) .
3. The Android Wiki has some useful links.
Pocket Casts, looks great, and you can download your podcasts for offline play, as well as stream.
Costs a few bucks, but so worth it.
Thousands of podcasts. If you have a commute > 10 mins the ideal companion instead of listening to radio ads.
I'm not familiar with any podcasts about hiphop (although that sounds interesting).
If you have an Android phone, get Pocket Casts. It's the best podcast app on the Play Store.
If you have an iPhone, get Overcast. It's the best podcast app on the App Store.
Plug for PocketCast. It's super frickin awesome and how I listen to all my podcasts(besides the sponsor only ones).
There's a bunch of different apps you could use. I personally use Pocketcasts, but if you want to try something free just to dip your toes into podcasts, I recommend Podcast & Radio Addict or you could just try iTunes or Google Play.
Pocket cast - money in the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a lot of the same as a
Pocket Casts is a great podcast app if your on Android, allows you to download. Also believe it's available on iPhone as well.
For apps, I recommend Pocket Casts. They've got a good selection of Japanese-language podcasts.
If you're looking for podcasts, I really like ひいきびいき. It's a podcast where the two hosts talk about a different topic every week, and it's really chill.
Both are available in the Pocket Casts App. It costs a couple bucks but I used Google Play Rewards credits to get it and really like it.
Two side notes:
Some of the Early Acq Inc episodes before they started "The Series" are available in the Dungeon Delve Podcast put together by Chris Perkins. He also has many of the Dice Camera Action episodes in there.
If you are getting an Android phone you should download the Google Opinion Rewards app. You take short surveys and get free Google Play Credits. It's very nice.
IF you have a smartphone, there's a good app called Pocket Casts (for iPhone, Android) that I really like. It allows you to slightly speed up the play, and automatically cuts silences. Probably available for Samsung. It does cost something around $2, though there are also lots of free apps, too.
I've only recently discovered podcasts, and am finding soooo much great content.
Yes, GPM is an awful podcast player. I ditched it about 5 mins after I started using it. I'd suggest using Pocket Casts. Aside from it being a far superior functioning and looking UI, it also allows you to search from both Google and Apple's podcast library.
I use Pocket Casts on my android phone, it works quite well. Once you have it setup you can download the podcasts directly to the phone.
I use pocket casts ([link]) which is great because it has a web app also and can sync what has been played between devices
I have a Task that starts my Music App (HTC One M8 native App) when my phone connects to a particular Bluetooth. However, It also starts the Pocketcast App at the same time. How do I stop this from happening?
When I used it I would click stop and unplug it and it would silently start playing again. So if I didn't remember to pause it again it would play through all my downloaded podcasts and mark them played.
It also has a weird glitch with android auto where no matter which one you clicked to play it would resume the one you had previously playing. I'd have to unplug the phone from the car and manually start the next one.
It hasn't been updated since June 10, 2016 and I kind of got tired of fiddling with it. So I switched to Pocket Casts Pro .
Did you get a Samsung Gear VR, or one of those Google Cardboard viewers? Opening up Street View in VR (...and I must guiltily admit, a few of those VR Kpop videos on Youtube...) was pretty fun, though I've never tried any of those games yet.
For podcasts, Pocket Casts is a great app, though if you're willing to wait I hear Google Play Music is about to launch a podcasts section soon.
Take a look at Pocket Casts. It's a beautiful podcast app for android and is easily in the top five apps I've ever bought.
Take a look at this app and take inspiration from it [link]
Loads of features, simple and intuitive UI. I love this app on my android, as of right now im using Grover Podcast on Windows.
Get Pocket Casts
Search for "The Tim Ferriss Show" and subscribe to it. All of his content is available in podcast form.
Pocket Casts - allowing me to listen to my favorite podcasts in the car on my commute to work actually makes it bearable. Previously, I was listening to German radio, which is terrible.
Pocketcasts is really good. It's available for iOS and Android. I've been able to subscribe to almost all podcasts regardless of where they are hosted. Also has a nice ability to automatically download the latest episode and remove it from your phone's memory when you are done listening to it or dismiss it from your queue.
Best changelog? Really? So what was changed then?! Yes it was rather entertaining, but they could take a look at Pocket Cast. That's funny and useful!
rooster teeth uploads their podcast to almost everywhere, some good android podcast alternatives are PocketCast or if you dont want to pay for an app PodcastAddict is another really good one ive used, im sure there are lots of others as well, find one you like
PocketCasts ist so ziemlich die beste imo. BeyondPod ist auch sehr gut.
Listened to it via Pocket Casts. Probably the best podcatcher on Android and well worth the couple bucks it costs on the Play Store
My treat for getting out and running is podcasts. Pocket Casts downloads them automatically, meaning I can just put on some headphones and go. There's a directory of popular shows in various categories. Try a few and see what you like. Many BBC Radio shows are available, including comedies like The News Quiz.
A lot of people use pocketcasts and it has basically never let me down. I've had multiple friends switch to iPhone from Android and they still kept using pocketcasts on iOS. It syncs pretty well with desktop / web browser, too.
It's Shifty Jelly, they want to build apps they would use, and they don't like in-app purchases at all, nor do they like ads.
Their other app is Pocket Casts, which is pretty popular, so I don't think they are too short on revenue :P
The free alternatives to pocket weather are pretty good too though, just thought I'd spread the word of Pocket Weather, considering it is material now.
I really like Pocket Casts [[link]]
It's smooth and easy to use and very stable. They also have a sync feature for podcast lists and preferences of the app:
I haven't used podcast addict or podcast republic in a long time so I can't compare their current feature set with Pocket Casts.
Play Music should definitely see MP3 files but I have another solution for you: [link]
Worth every penny and then some.
I would have to recommend Pocket Casts... It's by far the nicest looking app and has the functionality you're looking for.
I've had this app for a few years now and I I'm still loving it. Pocket Casts is also being updated regularly.
Hope this helps..
Pocket Casts is the best podcast app on any platform IMO. It's $4, but it's worth every cent. It bad every feature you could ever possibly need in a podcast app. You can download episodes automatically, get notifications, and more. I promise I'm not a paid shill.
Pocket Casts, usually the android version but has a web version to use too. Screenshot is web version.
Podcast's are a great way of entertaining yourself and maybe learn something as well. I recommend the app "Pocket Casts".
It has a variety of podcasts on many different subjects.
PocketCasts. I'm a fairly recent convert from iOS and my beloved Downcast app wasn't available. I tried doggcathcer and several others and ended up on PocketCasts.
Since all the good ones have been mentioned, I'll stray from the topic a bit.
I finally got started on podcasts after having about 8 or so different apps installed and sitting idle for the past few months. None of them were ever able to find all the podcasts that I wanted via the search function, so I never committed to one. (popular ones, as well as a couple local ones run by friends)
Until I tried Pocket Casts [Android] [iOS]. The others are free apps, so I initially skipped over P.C., but it really is worth the money. If Google were to ever buy up a podcast app to call their own, it'd be Pocket Casts and they wouldn't have to change a thing.
