Podcasts is the only podcast app you’ll ever need on an iPhone or iPad. This native app lets you automatically download every podcast you’ve subscribed to on iTunes once you’re in range of a Wi-Fi connection.

Not only will this significantly lower your mobile data usage, it also guarantees a smooth, uninterrupted stream, no matter where you are or what you’re up to.

Auto-download podcasts over Wi-Fi on an Android device

Tons of podcast apps on the Android platform allow you to download episodes over a Wi-Fi connection. Whether you’re heading out for your morning commute or afternoon session at the gym, it’s an easy way to save on mobile data and guarantee a smooth, uninterrupted stream.

Did you know that you can also set up your podcast manager to automatically grab the latest episodes once you’re back in a Wi-Fi zone?

While we used Pocket Casts as an example, there are several other Android apps that offer a similar experience, including BeyondPod and Podcast Addict.
