    Does anyone have experience with a good podcast app for Android that works with connect?

    I used Podcast Addict. It worked quite well with connect. You should be able to find it in the App store. Since I plan to switch to LineageOS, I will see if I can find an open source alternative.

    Cheers,

    I use Podcast Addict, but it really really sucks compared to Pocket Casts :( Was hoping someone would've figured out how to make Pocket Casts work. Shoot, or even Spotify could be cool.

    The members only podcast was a huge selling point for me and I wish it worked better on other apps!

    Hi Rod, the last one I tested was Beyond Pod, and it worked fine.

    This is how I replied a few days ago by email to ERJ1 (whose helpful reply is just above this):
    Any podcast app that supports authentication (user name and password) should work to subscribe to the GTD Connect members-only podcast. While the GTD Connect site will let you log in with either your user name or your email address in the user name field, the podcast authentication requires your official user name.

    I don't have an Android handy to document the exact steps, but in theory it goes like this. You tap on whatever lets you enter a URL to subscribe to a specific podcast. The URL to enter is: https://gtdconnect.com/podcast.php
    After you enter that URL and tap Next, Done, Login, or equivalent, the app should ask you for the user name and password.

    Good luck with that. Tell me if you run into any snags.

    There are so many great podcast apps available, and it seems that support for authentication is not always high on their priority list.

    What features are you exactly looking for? I will have to look for a new podcast app myself. Maybe I can find something that fits your needs as well.

    Cheers,

    Hi! There's no particular features beyond a clean UI and the ability to access the GTD podcast. Podcast Addict is just really ugly and clunky to use. Pocket Casts I'd top notch in terms of great UI and ease of use.

    Let me know what you find!

    I just had a look at AntennaPod, which is an open source podcast manager. It works with connect and should be worth a try :)
    At least it could replay the recording of the last webinar ;) Maybe you could have a look.

    Cheers,
    Tristan
