Player FM Launches on Google Play, “Not Your Grandpa’s Podcast App”

Player FM

An application for Player FM launched for Android this weekend, bringing yet another podcast app to Google Play. But as the developers put it, this isn’t the same podcast app your grandpa uses. With a social login feature, you can share what you are listening to with your friends, as well as sync your shows in the cloud, allowing you access to the same feed on multiple devices. 

Player FM features over 300+ topics to browse through, making it highly likely you could even find some shows about Android. Although, we would still recommend the Droid Life Show instead.

If you are addicted to the podcasts, check it out.

Cheers Keith!

    I installed this app yesterday and later on in the day my battery started draining like crazy….dropped about 90% in about 3 hours… once I uninstalled the app, my battery became more stable…..was very weird. Anyone else have issues?

    So can you search on Pocketcasts? And does it have the RT podcasts?

      What about PODFY? It syncs player status between all your devices AND also has a web browser player!

    I was a long time Doggcatcher user, then I switched to BeyondPod. I’ll have to give this app a try.

    Podkicker Pro FTW!

  • cmdub

    been hooked on doggcatcher tbh and its fantastic for me

  • I’ll stick with Beyond Pod thank you!

    I looked at it and deleted it fairly quick. As already mentioned it does look like a knock off of pocketcast. Second, it has nowhere near the functionality of my favorite podcast app, BeyondPod.

    BeyondPod may be ugly but it does things exactly the way I need it to. Minus the cloudsyncing. Adding cloudsyncing would be nice.

      Yeah I use Beyondpod too. The features are great and it does everything I want it do but they really need to work on their interface. Even being pretty technologically proficient I found it to be pretty confusing at first when adding my own feeds.

      • I agree. I found it difficult to even look for KNOWN Podcasts. Like I listen to BBC Click. I had to look hard to find it. But it does what I need.

      That’s why I love PocketCasts. Solid player, good download manager, beautiful UI, and cloud syncing.

  • David Dudovitz

    2 weeks after GPlay 4.0, and every new app worth its weight in gold is using a similar design.

  • Raven65

    Does anyone really WANT any of their apps integrated with social media? I don’t.

  • Inquizitor

    This looks like a cheap knock-off of Pocket Casts.

  • And it’s free?! It’s definitely worth a look, nice clean interface from the pics.
