In a recent survey we found out that 94.9% of Nigerians who listen to podcasts, listen to them on their mobile devices.
We also found that the best way to enjoy a podcast was to have an appropriate application installed on your mobile device. It is good to have a decent pair of earplugs or headphones too.
Here’s a shortlist of apps for an enhanced podcast listening experience.
- Pocket Casts
Pocket Casts is an awesome app for people who listen to a lot of different podcasts. It has a great UI, light and dark themes, useful search and filtering options, and a lot more.
One of the useful things with Stitcher is the ability to search for episodes, not just entire podcasts. You can create playlists, find new podcasts, listen to the news, and more. It’s a free podcast app that offers a premium subscription service to remove ads and listen to original shows. It has won many “best of” awards as well.
Spotify is known for music, but they also have a curated podcast selection.
Google Podcasts is a new way for Android users to discover and listen to the world’s podcasts. You can subscribe to any show for free and download episodes for offline listening. All your listening is automatically synced across devices so you can pause on one device and resume on another with the Google Assistant.
Their goal is to make podcasting easy and fun, without sacrificing the quality every podcaster deserves. Every feature in Anchor is designed to be so straightforward that anyone (even people with zero podcasting experience) can pick it up and start using it right away.
If your favourite podcasts are not on these apps, please speak with their creators to ensure they get them on there. One of the perks of Anchor.FM is that it distributes content to major podcasting hosts!
Meanwhile, Anchor.FM is now a part of Spotify. Read more here.
