Gadgets We Like: Pocket Casts Keeps You Up To Date With What's New In Podcasts

May 24, 2012

Are you someone who likes to make sure you have the newest episodes of your favorite podcasts as soon as they’re available? If so, you may want to check out Pocket Casts, a very helpful app from Shify Jelly.  All you need to do is add the podcasts you like into the app, and then once new episodes are available you’ll be able to stream or download them.

Pocket Casts refreshes instantly, and sends you notifications when there are new episodes to listen to, so there’s no searching and checking required on your end. More features include: automatic cleanup of old episodes, download two files at once, enjoy video podcasts as video or audio, variable playback speed, easy sharing of episodes (or specific parts of an episodes) with your friends, Air Play support (so you can stream audio and video podcasts to your speakers or TV), and more.

The app costs $1.99 in the iTunes store—not too bad for something that can save you a whole lot of time by getting your favorite podcasts as soon as they’re available for your ears!

*Pocket Casts is compatible on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, & Android
