Top Free Android Podcast Players
A podcast is a show that is available over the internet which
is divided into parts or episodes. Podcasts include both audio and
video files and are often downloaded through web syndication. When the
term podcasting was invented back in 2004, this form of broadcasting
was regarded as the new face of radio journalism. Some users have been
confused by the term podcast, incorrectly believing that it requires an
Apple iPod to listen to this type of digital media.
There are a huge range of podcasts available ranging
from professional radio programmes, a guide to repairing a car, a daily
cocktail recipe, or a language lesson. Whatever your interests may be,
is bound to be a podcast that will be engaging.
The Android Market has a huge number of dedicated and
integrated podcast players. Some of the players have very limited
functionality, or are in a very early stage of development. The purpose
of this article is to help users separate the wheat from the chaff. We
have compiled a list of 5 high quality podcast players all available to
download without charge. Hopefully there will be something of interest
here for anyone who wants to get into the world of podcasting.
So, let's explore the 5 podcast applications at hand.
For each application we have compiled its own portal page,
providing screenshots of the software in action, a full
description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with
links to relevant resources and reviews. We give our highest
recommendation to Google Listen and BeyondPod. We consider that these
two applications represent the best of breed podcast players available
in the Android Market.
