The most popular podcast application for Windows Phone, ‘PODCASTS!’, has recently been released in the Windows 8 store, where it can be downloaded free of charge.
‘PODCASTS!’ allows you to stream audio and video podcasts, subscribe to podcasts, download episodes for playback when you’re not on the app and search for podcasts efficiently and easily. Furthermore, the app fully supports rotation and snapped modes and background audio playback is fully integrated with the Windows 8 system audio controls. Best of all, it doesn’t cost a penny.
With Xbox Music not really offering support for podcasts, either on Windows 8 or Windows Phone, this app is essential, and all it needs really is to find a way of synchronizing play position with Windows Phones also.
