What is the best Android podcast app

I am looking for something simple and elegant, the ability to skip ahead and subscribe via iTunes style search. So many apps are feature oriented I want one uncluttered and great for listening.

    ✅ Simple UI for managing multiple podcast subscriptions ✅ Detailed settings, especially for managing downloads ✅ Pretty decent discoverability features, although that wasn't a primary use case for me

    Beyondpod is definitely my favorite. The podcast recommendations engine in the app is fantastic.

    Super simple to start off right away (iTunes capable search, direct URL listing, etc.) but you can also dive deep into the options (which podcasts can update over 4G vs. requiring WiFi), timing updates of the podcasts themselves, etc. Can also import ripped Books on CD as podcasts so they're always there and at the spot you left off, all in one app. This one also allows you to save downloads to your MicroSD/SD card freeing up vital on-device space.
