I had been looking for a long time trying to get a half decent pod-caster for Android. I trialed about 10 different leading apps. I found that Pocket Casts was leagues ahead of everyone else in design, usability and function.

Clinchers for me was the ease of setting up playlists and managing a feed. Also being able to discover new podcasts via the application was a bonus.

It has all the right settings to let me make it behave precisely as I wish, depending on the podcast and syncs my progress between all my devices. Nothing else I've tried comes close to working so well and reliably.

Every now and then I get duped into trying this """""free""""" ecosystem. It is not free, let's get that out of the way first - the devs SAY they will only charge you for the web player, but the APPS COUNT AS THE WEB PLAYER. So apart from the ANDROID APP, this ecosystem is totally unusable without paying. As in, it will not let you sign in or click anything.

I AM SICK OF SEEING THIS LISTED INCORRECTLY.

I've been a supporting user of Pocket Casts for many years. The positive reviews are easy to find, and I agree with all of them.

My recent issue with it is not big enough to get me to switch to an alternative; I've tried them all, and none come close to Pocket Casts' usability, simplicity, and user options. However, I have rolled back to version 7, since the latest update (ver. 8) broke the pattern of excellence for me.

Personally, I think they update their UI too much. I'm sure as popular as they are, they are deluged with requests and suggestions. But they need to remember that changes risk alienating their most firm supporters.

Honestly, the first version I ever used, I don't what number that was, was already perfect! The best thing about that one was the first feature to be taken away: when it was playing, and your mobile screen was showing the player, the entire screen surface was reactive as a widget; press anywhere on the right third of it, go forward; anywhere on the left, go back-- safest way to listen while driving in the pre-bluetooth days.

Each subsequent version has gotten more feature-rich, but has also consistently made radical enough UI changes to require an annoying process of re-learning it.

If they could somehow keep adding features or making security patches without changing the face of the app, they would get five stars from me.

There's no other multi-platform podcast player that even comes close.
