PhoneBoy Speaks Ep 1318: Table Stakes for Podcast Apps

Some of these may be unique to me and how I consume podcasts, but, here’s what I look for in a podcast app these days:

  • Podcasting 2.0 compliance
  • Inbox for new episodes to decide to skip/add to queue
  • Per podcast playback prefs for speed, auto queueing, downloading (versus streaming), and deleting downloads
  • Multiple play queues with different auto-advance options
  • Refresh from RSS feed directly
  • Sample a podcast episode without subscribing
  • Intelligent queue sorting options
  • Local Bookmarks

Of course, that’s just my take.
