    I'm looking for a good podcast app. I have a subscription to one podcast that I have to enter user and password. Most apps I have found won't support this.

    Only one I can recommend is "listen", don't know if it allows password entry.

    I currently use Listen, but it's pretty awful. If anyone has good suggestions (paid or not), please let me know.

    DoggCatcher (in the market) has this exact feature I believe!

    Otherwise, it's a very robust podcast/ rss aggregator and I'm extremely happy with it. It is, however, a paid app ($7 I think) but well worth it if you're really into podcasts.

    Good luck.

    I know this is not exactly what you're looking for, but I find streamfurious pro to be a VERY good at streaming podcasts.

    Media Fly is also an option. It gives you the ability to manage your podcasts from a website. I also listen to one podcast that requires a user name / password. I used iTunes before. Mediafly does not give you the ability to enter the password (by the way, Listen does, and I don't think it is that bad). However, I was able to subscribe to the podcast on the website. I suspect that I had a cookie stored on my drive from iTunes that did not require me to enter any passwords.

    Mediafly is free.

    I've been using Mediafly. I tried a couple and even though it can be a bit buggy at times, I've been happy with it. The developers are also VERY responsive and helpful and that always endears me to apps. I like that it is also a website, so it is easier to add stuff from my computer.

    I have no idea if it supports passwords.

    It is free for audio only and paid ($.99 ) for audio and video.

    eta: PatG beat me to it!

    Hmmm, I will definitely need a good podcast app when I get my awesome Ford Fiesta with Sync! :)

    But I'll also need a job to commute to, but that's another story.

    I would recommend BeyondPod. it does this, and will also schedule updates, as well as turn off 3G and turn on wifi to do update. All automatically. Very nice app. Also check out the BeyondPod Google Group, dev is in there a lot and always tries to help out best he can.

    doggcatcher, as someone else has already mentioned, will work. In fact, when I got my Droid on launch day I spent about a week trying to find something that worked with a password protected podcast. I emailed Eric, the dev, about doggcatcher and whether it supports this and I received a response almost immediately telling me that it did.

    He constantly updates it and listens to customers as to what features he should incorporate. He also has a forum with lots of help. SnoggDoggler | Home of DoggCatcher the Android Podcatcher

    Btw, I'm not affiliated with him or doggcatcher in anyway, just love his app.

    People are on drugs charging that much $$$ for a phone app.
    I'll avoid on principle.

    $$$ for Dogcatcher?? I don't think $7 for a great app is bad. I bought it a few months ago and use it daily. The only time I had a problem with it I listed it on their website and they fixed it in a couple of days. For some reason one of the feeds I listened to no longer worked.

    It takes quite an effort to develop (good) apps. These guys need to make money someway.

    Bumping this because I've switched to BeyondPod and am pretty happy with it. I currently have a 4+ hour drive twice a week, and having a stable app that lets me download it all ahead of time makes me pretty happy to pay $7 one time and kick Stitcher and the others to the curb. It's not perfect, but it's more than good enough for my needs. The smart playlist usually does what I want, but it'd be nice if you had multiple presets besides creating a "category" as a playlist.
