There’s a wide range of solid podcast players for mobile devices but if you’re a Chromebook user, the pickin’s are relatively slim. Enter smarterPod, a Chrome OS extension still in its infancy but looking — and sounding — good. SmarterPod remembers your podcast subscriptions, can play files back at 2x speed and will remember where you left off if you have to pause or stop listening to a show. Offline access isn’t there, but I’m hopeful we see it in the future.
We discuss the podcast player scene for Chromebooks on this week’s Chrome Show podcast, where we also share information about Acer’s newest pair of Chromebooks and discuss the benefits of the new remote access to Chromebooks functionality. Download this week’s podcast here or tune in below.
