Pihrra ,

Une bonne application pour Podcasts.

Probablement la meilleure application pour gérer ses podcasts.
Après avoir testé plusieurs autres, c'est celle-ci que j'ai trouvé la plus pratique.

La meilleure app de podcast.

Je les ai toutes essayées et celle-ci est loin devant la meilleure, la plus conviviale et la plus configurable. Bravo.

Easy to use and lots of options

After trying lots of competing apps this one remains my favourite: easy to use but with lots of tweaking possibilities. It also supports things like OPML import/export and passwords.
