I've been using doggcatcher since forever. I'm pretty happy with it but 99% of the time I'm not in the UI, I'm just listening. Its locked into my BT toggle so when I'm on a headset (motorcycle helmet) I just toggle media and the next podcast kicks off).

I gotta say that I'm a big fan of DoggCatcher. It's super flexible, and has about every feature you could want. Having so many features and options makes it hard to produce an elegant UI, but once you've got it set to your liking (i.e. download and keep every episode of podcast A, only the most recent 2 of podcast B, only download when on wifi, etc) you won't have to worry about the UI clutter anymore.

The only feature missing from DoggCatcher is sending video to my Chromecast.

I own BeyondPod, DoggCatcher and Pocket Casts. I've settled on Pocket Casts.

DoggCatcher has a ton of features, but the UI is pretty mediocre. BeyondPod didn't really offer anything that DoggCatcher didn't.

PocketCasts has all the features I want, a great UI, and the best part - cloud syncing. Log in with your user account and you've got all of your podcasts, all of your playlists, and synchronization of your progress for any of the podcasts. So when I go home and drop my phone in my office, I can use my tablet right where I left off.

I was a BeyondPod user for years, but got tired of the aging interface. I've been on Pocket Casts since they had their big Holo update and haven't looked back.

Pocket Casts in my opinion is the best. Lots of features and a killer ui
