Must-have App for Podcast Listeners

I’m a big fan of podcasts- so it’s always been a bit frustrating that Zune HD and Zune for WP7 don’t allow the user to search for podcasts on the go.  Sure, I can always go to my PC to search for and subscribe to podcasts, but it sure would be nice to look up a podcast as soon as I hear about it- which is usually when I’m away from my PC.  Enter the podcasts! application. This free WP7 app allows the user to search for and stream podcasts instantly over a 3G or Wi-fi connection.

Now, this only allows for streaming- you won’t be saving any podcasts to your phone by using this app.  Also, if you regularly sync a specific podcast to your Zune HD or WP7, and you stream an episode using this app, it will not show as played, and you will end up with that same episode on your device the next time you sync.  However, if you’re traveling and unable to sync to your computer, or you hear about a new podcast while away from home and want to listen to it immediately, this app is for you.
