Pocket Casts shines with its ad­vanced play­back fea­tures, cus­tomiza­tion op­tions, and avail­abilty on mul­ti­ple plat­forms. There’s some­thing for ev­ery one here, and it can be set up to man­age pod­casts the way you want to. The abil­ity to trim si­lence and boost vol­ume (fea­tures it shares with Over­cast) help you to both save time and have a more pleas­ant listening ex­pe­ri­ence. Plus, the en­tire app is pretty to look at and easy to use.

Whether you’re on An­droid, iOS or Win­dows Phone, this is the pod­cast app we’d rec­om­mend.


Over­cast is of­fer­ing a lot, and for free. Smart Speed helps to speed up pod­cast play­back and save you time, with­out mak­ing shows sound like an Alvin and the Chip­munks movie. Voice Boost nor­mal­izes au­dio, mak­ing for a more pleas­ant listening ex­pe­ri­ence.

The app is nicely de­signed, although it isn’t ideal for peo­ple who pre­fer to down­load spe­cific episodes in­stead of sub­scrib­ing to en­tire pod­casts. To clar­ify, free isn’t com­pletely free, you’ll need to pay US$9.99 to re­move the in-app ads. But if you can stand them, you can’t beat the value you get from Over­cast.
