What's the best podcast app for Android?

I'd like to listen to more podcasts on my Galaxy III, but I'm not sure what the easiest-to-use, most flexible app is.

I need to be able to:

Download new episodes
Start where I left off
Have it organized by show

That's it. What are your recommendations?

sort by

I haven't tested all of the big name apps, so I can't say it's the best, but after testing a few, I settled on DoggCatcher and I have been happy with it. I have even stopped using my audiobook player for stuff from and have just added the feed for the book to DoggCatcher and that has worked out well. I have it set to not auto-download so that I can just download and delete files manually in the feed. I think there are some advanced features hidden in there, but I don't use any feature beyond the pause/play from headphone button so I can control it from my LG Tone.

Pocketcasts as recommend by leigh, andrewkalies, and cjtylr IIRC! The app is wonderful and can even sync between two different Android devices if you have a tablet or another phone.
