Let’s be honest – the new Podcasts app in iOS 6 performs as fast as molasses. That’s why Downcast is here to save podcast enthusiasts across the globe.

Downcast works for both your iPhone and iPad, and lets you subscribe to and sync podcasts with your device.

Find your favourite titles – by searching or break it down by category. If that doesn’t work, you can manually add a feed.

If you like to listen to several shorter podcasts successively, you can create a podcast playlist containing your favourite sources.

One great feature with Downcast is the ability to enable downloads based on your location. Otherwise, there are lots of other ways to narrow down when and how it should download new episodes.
