The Sparks podcast app helps you maximise your learning from your listening; take notes and capture all those fleeting insights from your favourite podcasts.

With Sparks you can follow all your favourite podcasts and listen to new and past episodes. Whether in the car, the kitchen or on your daily commute, Sparks is ready to supercharge your podcast listening.

We all wish we could remember things we heard on that podcast episode last week. With Sparks you just hit the button to add a note (a spark) and capture that thought or inspiration; it's tagged to the podcast episode so you can always find the context again. No more switching over to the Notes app or finding a scrap of paper!

The sparks you save whilst listening are always there for you. No more hunting around to find the really interesting bit from a few weeks ago - just search your sparks and listen to the snippet. Easy.

There's a whole lot more coming soon, this is just the beginning. Send us any feedback or questions to and sign up for the full platform at

Get Sparks and start learning better from podcasts now.

Just what I‘ve been looking for

I like listening to podcasts on the go, but at the end of the day before bedtime, when I want to consolidate my understanding, it’s annoying when I can’t find which bit to play back. Sparks allows me to drop a marker for the sentences I find inspiring and go back to the precise content again in the future. Great for auditory learners!

Neat idea. Doesn’t work :(

I love the idea here. And the crisp clear layout and fonts.But I’ve had to upload and re-upload the app a couple of times because it keeps crashing. And it has very limited functionality beyond adding comments. Were it to be bugproof and have things like “play next” list or a favourites list I’d be interested in re-visiting.
