Hello gudii9,

Have you tried downloading the podcast player for the play store
open the podcast player app on android
select your topics of interest
take the next button
tap skip on the top right
tap a podcast on the podcast page
tap the subscribe button
scroll down and tap an episode

hope this helps out

I'm having a lot of success with "Podcast Addict"
However, XYZ returns a LOT of results (but similar to an iTunes search), so if your iTunes podcast is in the results, I cannot know for sure.

iPhones require an Apple ID

i do not have iphone.


this means i cannot use itunes on windows laptop or android phone?

Commented:
Itunes should not ask you for an AppleID to be able to download. It gives a clear unprotected download link.
After installing, it might as you for an AppleID, but that should be skipped. Then inside the iTunes menu, you can actually sign up for a new AppleID

I am sorry I am a little confused by "I do not have apple id as my phone is iPhone"    but then you say "i do not have iphone."


iTunes is an Apple product so you are not able to use it on an android phone.

However, I did provide a solution from the play store that will work with the android phone to listen to a podcast.

You can use iTunes on Windows or OSX (Macs) + you still must create an Apple ID for some iTunes interactions.

Just create an Apple ID (on their site), then add you're user/pass when iTunes prompts you.

You didn't even read what I already posted:

Obviously, you also ignored the link I posted as well, you could have seen point 2: From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, choose Account > Sign In. Then click Create New Apple ID.

https://appleid.apple.com/account#!&page=create - link for creating a new Apple ID.

And as Kimputer said, likely you won't require one.

If you do, just fill out the above form + get one for free.

Browse the Podcast category, well, by just clicking on it.

If you already know the same, just input it directly in the Search

Hi gudii9,

I'm a little late to the party here, but I wanted to see if I could help out with this issue.

1. It seems like Stacy and Kimputer provided you a a couple options on methods to listen to podcasts on your Android phone, are they working for you? Which method are you currently trying to access podcasts with?

2. Also, Kimputer and David provided you some instructions and tips on setting up your iTunes account. It sounds like you are able to access an iTunes account now correct? What are you accessing this account on?

3. Now, I'd like to clarify your initial question. Do you have a specific podcast in mind that you are trying to access on your Android phone? When you say,
i have one itune podcast with name say 'xyz'
do you mean there's a podcast you are listening to in iTunes, and want to listen to it on your Android phone? If you provided the name of the podcast, someone can help you access it on your phone.

If you just wanted to be able to find podcasts in a specific category such as
business, selling, enterpreneurship or technical topic etc?
please let us know, and someone can help you do that in the app you wish to use.

Hope this helps!
Martin
