    Pocket Casts is the best looking iPhone podcast app and they have a decent website!

    I started using this when I switched from iOS to Android. Works really well. Wish there was a Mac OS version.

    If you already use Overcast on iOS, have a look at their website. Provides a list of all podcasts you're subscribed to and lets you listen to podcasts in the browser.

    Works great, although uploading podcasts through the website seems to take an age to appear on the phone. Perhaps I am missing something?

    Breaker is my favorite. I love the social aspect.

    +1 for Breaker, although I don't use the social part the app is seamless. Switched from Overcast after it stopped saving what episode was already played. (could have been a bug but forced me to switch)

    The focus on finding individual podcast episodes that fit my usage pattern has been awesome!

      Adding a social layer to listening and discovering podcasts is a nice idea, but Breaker doesn’t appear to offer any easy way to unlink social platforms or erase your profile/data of you change your mind. Given the incredibly vague privacy policy, it’s asking for a big leap of faith.

    • I am using this app in every commutes. It has some handy features as the 'jump silences' in podcast that can make you win up to 5 min per podcast

    Unofficial Pocket Casts client for macOS. There are a lot of iOS/mobile versions and web players recommended in this thread, but this is a macOS application, and sync with your existing Pocket Casts account. If you use Pocket Casts on mobile, I suggest this solution. • Progress bar indicator on Dock icon • Supports the use of default media player controls on your Mac (F7-F9) • Fullscreen mode
