Comments from some of those who selected PocketCasts as one of their top tools
“one of the few paid apps I use, PocketCast is my preferred podcast app. Easy to add sources and synchronisation across devices makes it my preferred choice.” Andrew Jacobs, UK, 2019
“I regularly listen to podcasts, and I have found this to be my preferred app. While initially it caught my eye because it was Australian made, I have been won over by the clean and easy-to-use interface and being able to create playlists of episodes that I want to listen to.” Head of Risk Skills, Australia, 2019
“User-friendly podcast platform. I prefer this app’s organization to Apple Podcasts, free!” Instructor, USA, 2019
“Since I started running I found that I sometimes needed to hear something other than the sound of my feet on the pavement. I don’t like running to music too often as I find it makes me speed up so looked around at audiobooks and spoken word content. I discovered a great podcast app (Pocket Casts) and have a menu of 20+ podcasts which I listen to regularly. These include the TED radio hour, Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History, the Tim Ferriss Show, RadioLab and This American Life. There is enough variety that I can find content which I can use in work and it’s all available for nil/neutral cost.” Andrew Jacobs, L&D Manager, UK, 2016
