The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

Details: PodListen - free podcast app

market download PodListen - free podcast app
Main idea behind this app is to set podcast listening free from inconvenience of switching between screens and going through menus. Instead, all navigation in PodListen is done by simply swiping between 3 tabs, basic actions are done with single tap.

PodListen is open-source ad-free app, it doesn't include analytics services, collect any user data or use strange system permissions.

Besides original interface, it has basic features one can expect from podcatcher app:
* searchable podcast database
* OPML import and export
* feeds auto-refresh and episodes download
* subscription by clicking on RSS links in browser
* home screen widget
* playlist sorting modes
* preferences like ?download on wi-fi only?, "pause on headphones disconnect" etc.

NB!: as interface of this app was intentionally made simplistic, don't expect it to have some features big paid apps have: episode ratings, sharing of anything via social networks, video episodes support, various folders and categories like ?recommended?, ?favorite?, ?downloaded?, ?played?, etc.
