Pocket Sized Podcast 158: Vic and Ronnie podcast app cage match 3000

Subscribe in iTunes

Continuing on from last week’s episode about iOS podcast client apps, Vic Hudson of App Story Podcast loves Downcast, Ronnie loves Castro, and Scott loves and hates the Evernote iOS app. Ok, Evernote’s not a podcast app. But Scott still wants to talk about the lack of text color formatting as well as the great business card scanner in Evernote anyway. Also Ronnie and Vic talk about some of their podcast listening habits, and John Nemo refuels your mojo with the Mojo Refuel Aqua S battery case in World’s Shortest Reviewcast.

I’m sorry, but this is a bit of a rant cast. Ronnie rants about the how messed up his attempts to buy an iPhone 5s were. Scott rants about the photo and video problem in the iOS world, and then follows that up with rants about Evernote and the iOS 7 app switcher. Also, an App Folder on Boinx PhotoPresenter. Can’t stand your iPad? John Nemo can, in World’s Shortest Reviewcast, with one iPad case and one iPad stand.
