Any experts if u try it could u compare it and c how it rates to the purchased ones?
I'm no expert, but I just tried CarCast against DogCatcher.

Seems to me like they are both valid approaches: minimalist, simple in the case of CarCast and full-featured but significant learning curve for DogCatcher.

I stuck with DogCatcher.

A big factor for me was the way CarCast lumps all the downloaded files into a single list - whereas DogCatcher segregates them by feed and allows building a play list where you mix them as desired.

OTOH, adding a podcast to a DogCatcher play list involves too many actions for my taste.... but that's small change in the context of it's many features.

Bottom line, I would advise anybody that's looking to try DogCatcher.... and give it a little time until you dope out the UI. It's not totally intuitive, but once I caught on all the functionality was there.
