The Best Podcast App

I try new podcast apps when they’re released but none ever compare to Downcast. It’s just so well organized and allows for such granular configuration of your feeds and playlists! I recommend it to everyone I know who likes podcasts.

Should have been Apple's podcast app

I just love it- it's the only podcasting app I use (and have used for many many mths).
