Google Listen is a very powerful podcast app for Android mobile phones. It lets you search, subscribe, download and stream. It creates a personalized audio-magazine loaded with fresh shows and news stories for you to listen. The only painful thing you face with this app is to manage your feeds. But the recent release of Listen will help you manage your subscriptions from Google Reader. You can add voice search for finding new shows. With the Listen’s 1.1 update, you can easily repopulate your shows. Unlike, the previous version of Listen, when you have to manually search out for your lost shows, this time your shows are backed up to Google’s cloud. Voice-to-text search is another Android app, you can enjoy with Google Listen. Even if you are offline and need to access your feeds, Listen is there to help you.
