Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts is a great podcast app loaded with features. You can easily subscribe to your favorite podcasts, and a sync option allows you to pick up from where you left off across devices, and on the web.

The app has picked up a significant update to version 6.0 that adds several Nougat features, including support for multi-window mode, app shortcuts, audio effects while streaming, and the ability to create shareable lists of your favorite podcasts.

The Shared Lists feature allows you to create curated lists of your podcasts and share them with your friends on any social platform. Shared lists have a unique URL, and look something like this.

Other updates include subtle changes to the Now Playing screen, and the introduction of audio effects while streaming, such as volume boost and a trim feature that cuts out parts of a podcast that are silent (thereby removing a whole lot of awkwardness). Shifty Jelly (the developer of the app) also added accessibility improvements, and squashed playback and Chromecast bugs.
