The first thing I want to say about Poddr is that it offers a stylish interface. It’s well designed, clear, and doesn’t seek to bamboozle the user. That’s the way I like software. On the left of the window are Toplists, Searching, Favourites, and Settings section. At the bottom of the screen are the obligatory rewind, pause/play, and forward buttons. There’s also an information button, and a volume slider.
Toplists – Top 50 podcasts
Here’s an image of Poddr in action. It’s showing the Top 50 Swedish podcasts in a grid view.
At the top, you can define the genre of podcasts to peruse. Choose from: Arts, Comedy, Education, Kids & Family, Health, TV & Film, Music, News & Politics, Religion & Spirituality, Science & Medicine, Sports & Recreation, Technology, Business, Games & Hobbies, Security & Culture, and Government & Organizations. Poddr uses iTunes RSS feeds to pull in the podcasts. A much better solution than having to manually add podcasts from their RSS feed.
The next drop down lets you select the Country. And you can display the podcasts in a grid view, or a list view.
Poddr uses the Search API to gather information. In the image below, I’m searching for Python related podcasts.
Defining favorite podcasts is just as easy. Simply click the heart icon displayed near the bottom right hand corner of any podcast. Your preferred podcasts are easily accessible from the Favourites section.
