    I've bought a Moto G for holiday use and to see what "the other side" is like ;)

    So I've got quite a few apps I use from my iPhone, as either the same direct app or equivalent. However I specifically wanting a podcast app.

    I love how easy to use, and slick the iOS podcast app is, the ones I've tried on Android are nothing in comparison. Does anyone know if theres a decent one they've tried? I've google, but hard to say as some are paid apps, so don't want to pay all the time, and find I don't like it.

    cheers

    People rave about Pocket Casts. I have that but still prefer Dog Catcher, it isn't flash though like Pocket Casts

    I use pocketcasts. It's on iOS and Android and you can sync between the two OS's.

    thanks, will look at those. I don't do anything flash, basically download a load for holiday listening, as long as its easy to get/subscribe and then download (and chose SD for storage), then thats fine. Easy to use is the thing for me!

    tried a few, and they are just muddled interface, hard to use/navigate and have adverts etc. Happy to pay for the right one as long as its decent.

    Pocketcasts for me too. Ability to sync between Android and iOS was the key for me when I was choosing. I understand they now also have web and Windows Phone covered.

    I like the interface as well.

    I still use Podkicker the free version.

    I've tried all the others but Podkicker is stupidly easy to use.

    I use Pocket Cast and TuneIn. TuneIn has the added benefit of live radio streams as well as podcast. It's actually very cool.
