    Title pretty much says it, looking for a solid app that can handle music and podcasts (not just play them, but update the subscriptions). I can only seem to find two, Astro player and InfiniMusic. Astro seems to have the right idea, just needs a lot of work and a better main menu. I didn't try infinimusic, as it is pay and didn't get good review comments (also no update in over a year).

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    You could try Google Listen. It's certainly not perfect and (as usual) the UI could do with some polish, but it generally gets the job done.

    I also use Media Monkey (on the desktop) which syncs with my phone and I play it through Power AMP. Again, not a perfect solution but it's ok for when I can sync my phone with the computer.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but I was looking for one app to handle both. There are several that can do both well individually. Google Listen is very simplistic, which I liked...but it messes up too often for me (i.e. has a hard time saving spots). Thanks though!

    i don't recall ever seeing any good apps to do both.

    however, I really like Podtrapper for podcast feeds.

    +1 for PodTrapper for both podcasts and vodcasts.

    I haven't seen any that do both. I am pretty happy with Pocket Casts for podcasts, though.

    I like Pocket Cast too, design is good, but it's a bit complex when it comes to downloads - I can't get where are my downloads. Also I love to have "go 10 sec back" button on the lock screen. Because when someone disturbed you - you need a quick way to get back and listen again what you missed.
