As podcasts continue to grow in popularity, the need to find a good way to discover, play, and organize them also grows. Podcasts have been part of Apple’s iTunes and Music app for years, but even Apple has now realized that podcasts are worthy of their own app. Dedicated podcast apps are essentially super-specialized RSS readers, because most podcasts are distributed via an RSS feed. Thus, the differences between the apps have to do with implementation, features, usability, and stability. Which one you prefer can vary based on your familiarity with podcasts and your need for more advanced features.
