I listen to podcasts on my phone, using Apple’s native Podcasts app. It works. And, like so much tech, my eyes wander, and I wonder if there’s something…sexier…with a better user interface…that allows different speeds…more playlists. First world lusts.
If you’re just getting started on podcasts, my recommendation is:
- Find the native app that goes with your phone, whether Apple or Android.
- Download it to your device.
- Find an article that helps you learn how to download podcasts to the app. This Digital Trends article may help. Or go to my Help page for other guidance links.
If you’re a podcast pro and want to explore beyond the baby-pool, check out this May 23, 2017 article from Bello Collective: One Sentence Reviews of the Entire Podcast Listening Landscape by Erik Jones. It gives a high-level overview of podcast players / podcatcher apps and delivery systems.*
(* BTW, can we settle on what we're calling these listening-device apps?)
