FavouriteAntennaPod is a very useful and flexible podcast player.

AntennaPod is high quality software. It rivals Podcast Guru in many respects although that app offers much more functionality, combined with a more elegant interface. However, AntennaPod is very easy to use, it doesn’t hog your Android device’s resources, and will be appreciated by people who don’t like their apps burdened with every bell and whistle under the sun.

Unlike Podcast Guru, AntennaPod is open source goodness. It’s published under GNU General Public License v3.0. That’s a big feather in its cap!
