PODCAST-- The great thing about owning a smartphone and or tablet is the ability to carry around your favorite tunes, podcasts, movies or another type of entertainment. Developers by the name “Shifty Jelly” have created one of the best apps for your Android tablet names Pocket Casts. With it you can download, stream, subscribe to both your standard podcasts as well as videocasts.
This podcast does not have a free version unfortunately, but thankfully there are reviews like this that are plentiful so you can decided if you want to give it a try. On top of that, you can always purchase it from the Google Play Store and if you dont like it you can ask for a refund that is usually accepted within the first 15-20 minutes, so make sure you have time to truly put it to the test.
One thing about Pocket Casts that should never be overlooked is how often it is updated. Now just over 4 years since it was developed and released in the Google Play Store for Android devices like a tablet, the app is still going strong with updates. If you are not looking to download this just yet and can wait, you can download the Google Opinions app and earn free Google Play Store credits and buy the app using them once you have accumulated enough.
There is honestly too much for me to describe and the Shifty Jelly team has already said it best, so here is a quote of their description from the official Google Play Store.
“AUDIO EFFECTS: Always dreamed of playing more podcasts, but don't have time? Use our silence removal feature to dynamically speed up podcasts. Podcasters talking too softly? Give them a (volume) boost!
