#1 Podcatcher


Seit Jahren gibt es regelmäßig Updates. Downcast unterstützt alles, was ich von einem Podcatcher erwarte: automatische und individuelle Playlists, Kapitelmarken, individuelle Einstellungen je Podcast, uvm.

Von einigen Podcasts möchte ich z.B. jede Folge downloaden und behalten, bei anderen will ich manuell bestimmen welche Folgen geladen werden, will sie aber automatisch löschen sobald sie gehört sind.

Alles kein Problem.

individualisierbarer Profi-Player


Player mit sehr vielen Möglichkeiten:
Ich habe etliche Podcatcher getestet und für mich funktioniert Downcast am besten, obwohl andere Apps mir in Teilbereichen besser gefallen.
Eigene Abos lassen sich einfach und übersichtlich verwalten. Es gibt viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, die für Vielhörer praktisch sind. Regelmäßige Updates Sorgen seit Jahren zuverlässig dafür, dass die App gut läuft.

Beste Podcast App

Woodlike Tomorph

Seit vielen Jahren mein ständiger Begleiter! Regelmäßige updates, die Möglichkeit nur den Ton von Videos im Hintergrund abzuspielen, automatische Playlists aus Podcasts mit der Möglichkeit nachträglich manuell zu sortieren, continuous play, Unterstützung für Kapitelmarken, schnellere Abspielgeschwindigkeit auf Wunsch, iCloud-Sync für alle Geräte und noch viel Mehr! Ich freue mich jeden Tag über diese App! Danke für die tolle Arbeit!
