    I prefer beyondpod, but doggcatcher looks like it has a very similar interface and supports presto

  •  

    Ah! Just bought it last week for $5 but worth the money.

  •  

    How does this compare to listen?

    •  

      both doggcatcher and beyondpod are far ahead in terms of features, listen only looks good but doesn't have the amount of podcasts in it's db or the playback functionality of the other two

    I MUCH prefer to support the local guys with PocketCasts — plus I think its regular price about this one is on sale.

    Doggcatcher is great - I use it as my Podcast player and it was worth $6, so it's definitely worth $2.

    I don't really listen to podcasts much, but for $1.91 I'll get it!

    DC is easily the best podcast app I've found on Android.
    Have tried many and read reviews for tons. Most of them are hopeless.
    MyPOD was the best of the free ones - but it's frustrating to use and limited to 10 podcasts.
    Jumping on this now!

    I use Google Listen, not really the best podcast app but it's free.

  •  

    I liked listen, but…
    a) doesn't download subscribed podcasts so you can listen offline; and
    b) missing tons of content.

    So not much good to me when I cant listen to my favourites, and expensive if taking it out jogging etc and always streaming.

    Hi Guys,

    I may have got the initial price wrong in the first post (mokibria said it was $5) - It is difficult to find out what the old price was.

    Also I agree with spawnpoint and webstersx that Beyondpod and pocketcasts are good choices too. I have already purchases pocketcasts - but am having a little trouble with the variable speed playback (It could be my phones fault though). At that price I was happy to try doggcatcher.

    I tried listen but after a day I found I could not use it - It was promising however it looks like another google product that was abandoned in its infancy.
