App Guide

If there’s a better podcasting app than Downcast, we haven’t found it. The universal iOS app exceeds every expectation a podcast lover might have – and creates a couple of new ones in the process. Here’s what separates Downcast from the podcasting pack.

The navigation in Downcast is better than most apps of this sort. You don’t have to spend much time guessing how to share via social media or alter the playback speed. The nav icons are intuitive to figure out and use. Downcast doesn’t assume you listen only on the iPhone. The universal app is also native to the iPad, and looks great there.

Best of all, you can sync Downcast between your iPhone and iPad without much effort. Assuming you used the same iTunes account to download the app to both devices, you can use iCloud to sync episodes, podcast subscriptions and playlists between devices.
