App Lowdown: A world of entertainment in your pocket
Published 30/05/2014 | 02:30
For such a long time there was no easy way to get podcasts onto a non-Apple mobile device. Very frustrating. Even still, there isn't a free, simple way to download and subscribe to the best podcasts out there – but here's a suggestion: Pocket Casts. The app is available on both iOS (€3.59) and Android (€2.99).
Pocket Casts allows users to sync their podcast subscriptions, playlists and back up content. It's so easy to use and has full access to any podcast available in the iTunes store.
The app is both Airplay and Chromecast compatible meaning it's possible to play the content via a TV. I'm slow to part with cash for apps, but it's an entertainment investment.
