Much like the Google Play store, the IOS app store has some amazing podcasting apps. The only difference is that Apple has its own stand-alone app that many of us are used to. How can an app compete with Apple? Design, functionality, and ease of use. We have selected our top 5 non-Apple podcasting apps for IOS to make it easy for you.


1. Downcast -  Downcast is one of the most popular Podcast apps in the IOS app store. You can Download and listen to your favorite podcasts directly from your iOS device without the need to sync with iTunes. Search, subscribe to, and download audio and video podcasts of any size. Manually subscribe to podcasts via URL. Download podcasts automatically (including resuming downloads). Continue podcast downloads in background.

Price $1.99
Platform: iPhone and iPad
Itunes Link: Downcast

2. Instacast - Instacast 3 has a new look and also removes a lot of friction. With this new version of Instacast, for the first time, you're getting a universal app. Underneath, the iPad and iPhone apps are the same with the same powerful built-in features. The only difference is the interface, which is delightful no matter what device you're playing with. You can either submit your own RSS link  or use the Instacast Online Directory, which consists of over 30,000 podcasts from all over the world with more are being added every day.

3. Pocket Cast - Stay up-to-date with all the latest podcasts with one easy-to-use app. Simply add your favorite podcasts, and you'll be able to stream or download new episodes as they become available.

4. Stitcher -  We are really fond of Stitcher Radio for Android and for IOS. Not only can you listen to your favorite Podcasts on demand, but you can also listen to your favorite terrestrial and Internet radio stations as well. Another unique feature of Stitcher is the ability to create a smartlist, and Stitcher can provide personalized recommendations based on your listening preferences.
