doubleTwist updated with great podcast features, even in the free version

Another complete podcast manager choice

doubleTwist has updated their Android app, bringing some great new features for folks who use it to listen to their favorite podcasts.

Today's new features are all available in the free, ad-supported mode, but of course are also available for premium customers. Here's the list of what's new:

  • Added related podcasts for many popular podcasts. These appear when you scroll to the bottom of the list of episodes on a particular podcast, although not all feeds have related podcasts.
  • Added podcast episode sorting options, so users can browse by chronological or reverse-chronological order.
  • Added support for password protected podcasts.
  • Added support for adding podcasts manually via URL, so that users can subscribe to podcasts that are not in the doubleTwist directory.

There are also a couple of features that aren't podcast-related — better Apple TV detection for easier sharing, and the ability to delete a song from the overflow menu.

A whole lot of Android users love doubleTwist, and features like these are the reason why. Give it a look by clicking the Google Play link at the top of the post.
