DoggCatcher Podcast Player Gets An Update, Version 1.2.219 Adds Playback Speed Altering And More

DoggCatcher, everyone’s favorite podcasting application for Android has just received an update.  The new update adds features like altering the playback speed using the app Presto ($3.99) via a 1X toggle switch on the player.  Want to hear that one hour long podcast in a half an hour?  Now you can, thanks to this highly anticipated feature.  There is a new Auto Play toggle switch that has been added to the player as well.

The addition now allows you to listen to several podcasts in a row as defined in your audio play list.  Another nice feature is the “Now Playing” slide up tab loaded with all of the info of the podcast you’re listening to along with a list of RSS feeds with a scrollable page and click-able links to the site’s feed.  Hit the break for some more pics of the app and to check out the developers full list of specs.  The app will run you $6.99 in the market, but if you ask anyone who’s ever used it, they’ll tell you it’s worth every cent.  The link to our database and QR code is after the break.
