ACast combines the functionality of a podcast management tool and an RSS news reader into a single application. It’s built around a tabbed interface that makes it quick and easy to find, add, read or listen to feeds. The application also has Google Reader integration and you can schedule automatic downloading and set it up to limit updates, downloads and streaming of content so they only occur when the phone has a Wi-Fi connection. This is handy for those on limited data tariffs.
ACast also supports password-protected feeds and will pause and resume playback when you have an incoming call. The free version is ad-supported, but you can remove the ads by either purchasing the ACast Unlock Key via the Market or instead opting to download the ACast Pro application instead.
ACast’s easy -to-use interface and impressive range of features make it a good bet for those after a powerful podcatcher or news reader.
