    Default Podcast apps?

    I might be in the wrong forum here. Can anyone recommend a great Podcast app for Android? Back when I had an iPhone, there were several really good ones, but now that I'm on Android I need a few recommendations.

    Thanks!

    I use and love beyond pod. It is pretty powerful and flexible so it may have a steeper learning curve compared to others.

    Yes, Pocketcasts. If you ever go back to iOS it will sync everything back to the Pocketcasts app on iOS as well.

    Another vote for beyond pod, and you can cast it if you have a chromecast.

    Beyondpod, is in fact the best podcast app you can ever have.

    It is very powerful, and has all the podcasts you could ever think of.

    I use OneCast. But I am not a big user of podcasts.

    I agree on Beyond Pod. You can use the lite version indefinitely for free too.

    Pocket Casts if you have multiple devices to sync listening position across.

    Beyondpod a good second choice.

    Beyondpod is the only app right now with chromecast capabilities in terms of pod casts if I'm not mistaken.... Which would make it the clear #1 IMO.

    If you only listen to audio podcasts, that seems like a nice to have rather than a need to have. Syncing with Pocketcasts is great - I was able to easily survive a factory reset and everything was ready to go when I reentered my password.

    You can sync with BeyondCast. It uses RSS capabilities and XML that is used with iTunes to update. It can also sync across all devices with the DVR features. And its more than audio podcasts, you can do video podcasts as well. Did you research BeyondCast before posting? I watched AAA on my chromecast from last week's video episode without any issues.

    I tried BeyondPod a while ago when I was looking to start using my phone as a podcast player and I just didn't like it as much. I know that it does audio podcasts (that's all that I do.) What I meant was that Chromecast support is not all that important if you are only interested in audio podcasts, particularly if you are listening on earphones. And PocketCast syncing between iOS and Android versions means that I can start listening to a podcast on the phone and then pick up the playlist where I left off (at the exact moment that I left off in an episode) if I want to listen on my iPad, and then go back again. Or, like I said - after a factory reset Pocket Casts picked up right where I left off with both of my playlists when I reinstalled the app and resynced, including where I was in each episode. If BeyondPod also does that, forgive me for impying that it does not.

    Pocketcasts does cost a little less.

    If BeyondPod works for you, that's great. The OP hasn't really said exactly what he is looking for in a podcatcher/player. I'll agree with you about this - BeyondPod is better if you watch video podcasts and want to do so on a Chromecast, at least for now.

    Again, BeyondPod does more than Chromecast for vids. It's a great audio podcast as well as it does have a TON of other features, especially for backup and restore. Again, it uses RSS and XML based on iTunes. And I know the OP didn't specifically state what he/she wanted in the podcast player, but solely on features, I can't find anything better than BeyondPod.
