Best Way to Listen to Podcasts


Many of us consider listening to a podcast as a kind of lifestyle now as it enriches our spare time and brings a lot of fun. While most of us intend to listen to a podcast on smartphone, a few will enjoy it via computers or download the audio to MP3. In this article, I’ll introduce 3 most popular app among podcast fans to you.







Pocket Casts

Android, iOS



Android, iOS

Free/ $9.99 per month



Overcast podcast is for iOS only, and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You can also use it on Apple Watch.

With this app you can both browse for new podcasts and get recommendations from Twitter, and the more you use it, the more interesting things you’ll find. Besides, it will notify you when new episodes arrive, but if you simply don’t want to receive the notification, you can just stop by setting the app. Oh, I guess you’re inclined to listen to the episodes during the bedtime just like many of us do. Am I right, then you’d find the function of setting a sleep timer useful, because by doing so you can fall asleep without worrying about leaving the app playing all the night.


Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts is for both Android and iOS, and it will cost you $3.99 to download it.

The first characteristic I’d like to mention is that it cut silences from episodes, which enables you finish them faster and thus save time. You must appreciate this since silence is as annoying as slow download speed while you’re listening to the podcast. Besides, you can change the play speed from anywhere between 0.5x to 3x according to your needs and preference. Still more, you can control playback from your wrist through Android Wear so you can choose or skip episodes when your smartphone is not nearby.



Spotify is also compatible with both Android and iOS, and it can be played on iPhone and iPad.

This is a young app which was born in 2016. Young as it is, it has already become popular worldwide thanks to its excellent performance. When you log in, you’ll be able to play music everywhere—on the phone, computer, tablet, in the car or on the website. Moreover, by downloading this app you’ll get access to wonderful music, playlists and new releases. If you would like to pay $9.99 each month, you’ll be able to avoid the annoying advertisements.


Well, that’s all for today’s recommendation. Above are the best apps to listen to podcast that I ever know. If you have different ideas, make a comment and share with us the best ones in your opinion!
