Overcast

Overcast Radio, LLC

The best podcast player for iOS

Overcast is the latest app from Marco Arment, and it's one of the best podcast players on the App Store. The app has a simple and clean interface that does not ever feel cluttered, and it displays all of the necessary show information in the listing while showing off podcast artwork. Arment also has a curated section where you can find the best podcasts of any given category, and there are even Twitter recommendations from your friends if you choose to link your account. Searching for shows is fast and easy, and subscribing to a podcast is just a tap away. Or, if you just want to hear one particular episode, just add that episode! Overcast supports both streaming and downloading, so you can pick whatever you feel like doing at that particular time. The real magic behind Overcast are the playback features, which include Smart Speed to cut out silences in the audio so you waste less time, and Voice Boost that can make the audio louder than normal, which is great for shows with quiet voices.

When you want flexibility

iCatcher! is the closest app in spirit to Downcast, as it costs the same, is universal, and uses iCloud sync. iCatcher, however, doesn’t feel as polished as Downcast; its features and interface lack the intuitive ease of use of the best iOS apps. To counteract this, iCatcher has pop up tips, but they quickly become annoying, especially when you realize that you actually need them. Another way of looking at it is that iCatcher doesn’t feel like it was designed to fall within the typical iOS users’ expectations for app functionality. That’s not to say it’s a bad app, but it does have a learning curve. Once you master it, you’ll be rewarded with an app with features such as: playlists, extremely customizable settings, AirPlay support, continuous playback, support for password protected feeds, and a sleep timer.

Stitcher Radio for Podcasts

Stitcher, Inc.

- Top 50 iPhone Apps - TIME Magazine

Stitcher Radio is more than just a podcast player; in fact, its primary function is as a radio app. As such, Stitcher only supports streaming podcasts, not downloading them, which severely lessens its utility. Users can browse, listen, and even create custom radio stations out of one or more podcasts (these function like a playlist). However, Stitcher’s catalog is somewhat limited, and it doesn’t offer an easy way to import your favorite feeds.

Obsessive Coders, Inc.

Finally, a full-featured podcast app that just works - no hiccups or crashes

Podcruncher isn’t flashy or overly concerned with design, but its basic interface and features make it worth a long look. The app’s focus seems to be on usability over interface, as it includes “pro” features such as playlist support (with several built-in smart playlists) and the ability to set show-specific settings as well as global ones. Podcrucher’s combination of swipes, taps, and gestures to navigate isn’t the most intuitive, but the app has an option to “show hints” readily available. Once it refines its interface and adds the ability to view show notes from within the app, Podcruncher may become a top destination for podcasts.

NightPod - Nighttime Podcast Player

NightPod - Nighttime Podcast Player

Craig Hemsing

Podcast Listening as a Sleep Aid.

If the worries of the day are keeping you awake at night, try listening to a podcast. Sometimes even a few minutes of careful listening to an interesting podcast can distract you enough to fall sound asleep.

There is already a good selection of great iOS apps for managing and playing podcasts during the daytime but most are difficult to use at night, especially if you need glasses or don't want to miss any of the podcast that you were listening to.

NightPod makes nighttime listening easier by providing:
• A dark background with convenient brightness control
• Big, high-contrast text for easier reading
• A large sleep button with single tap 'top-up'
• Smart navigation buttons to quickly find where you drifted off
• A screensaver with a large clock and elapsed time counter

NightPod can help you sleep on those nights when nothing else seems to work.
