As we all know, I love podcasts! It must come as some kind of shock that my new favorite app is a podcast app. I do my podcast listening on my old Samsung Galaxy using the podcast app Podcast Addict…well I did until I was told by David of A Quest for Magic and Steele about Earbud. Right now the app is in beta on iOS so instead of using my Galaxy I’m using my iPhone. The only downside to this is that my battery is very displeased (haha oh well!).
Earbud is like the Goodreads (an app for books) for podcasts. I also use and love Goodreads, I suppose I’ll talk about that at some point too…back to Earbud!
Some of the features I love are the way it tracks how much time you’ve put into listening (while writing this, I’ve been using the app for 2 weeks and have racked up 73 hours of listening) and the “playlist” feature. I listen at work, so after an episode I’d have to pull out my phone and play the next episode of something, not anymore! I just hit “play next” and put the podcasts in the listening order of my choice and when one episode ends, the next one begins, it’s awesome!
Since it’s still in Beta it doesn’t have all of the social media features just yet like the ability to message other users, can’t wait for that! I recommend the app to any podcast user that listens on an iOS device, if that’s you, what are you waiting for? Download it now!
