Use DoggCatcher, BeyondPod or PodTrapper? Add Presto To Speed Up Playback

I’m a huge fan of podcasting especially since my commute is about an hour and a half both ways to work.  I’ve chosen to make my commutes as productive as possible by listening to various tech shows, how to’s and anything Android related.  You’d think an hour and a half is a long time to get all my podcasts completed, but when you have a list of shows as big as mine that can be a difficult task.  One app I’ve recruited to help get the job done is Presto for Android.  Presto works in conjunction with your podcast or audio player and gives you the ability to speed up playback so you can complete it in no time.  However, different players allow for different speeds.

I currently use DoggCatcher as my primary podcast player and Presto works fantastic with it.  I’ve experienced no bugs during playback whatsoever.  With DoggCatcher you can listen up to 1.5 X the normal speed of the playback.  I was able to listen to an hour long podcast somewhere in the vicinity of 40-45 minutes.  Ready to give it a try?  The app will run you $4 bucks in the Android Market and you can also snag it from our apps database where you’ll find a QR code for your convenience.  However, if you heavily invest in podcasting like I do, you’ll agree it’s well worth that price.  That’s about the only con I found with the application, the rest are all pros.  Hit the break for some more developer info and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.   Read more
