What is Pocket Casts
Pocket Casts is a third-party alternative to the Apple Podcasts app or the new Google Play Podcasts app. It has a wealth of unique features, and has a steady userbase due to its array of features that are not available in the first-party apps. Pocket Casts has both a free and a paid version, with app and web streaming of podcasts.
Why should you get listed on Pocket Casts?
First of all, because it’s very easy. If your podcast is listed in iTunes, it’s almost definitely already in Pocket Casts, since that is where Pocket Casts gets its library of podcasts. But also, Pocket Casts has been one of the most popular third-party podcast players for years, with good reason. It has a lot of unique features, and users are able to move between app and web platforms, keeping their shows in sync. The most platforms that you get listed on the better, and Pocket Casts is not one to skip over.
