It’s been a while since we’ve done a giveaway on the site, so I’m about to rectify that right now, with a GREAT app.

Odds are you probably downloaded Apple’s free, bare-bones and painfully slow Podcast app.

Sure, this may be enough for some casual podcast listeners, but anyone who listens to a lot of podcasts needs to graduate to a full-featured app if they really want to have the most pain-free and pleasurable listening experience.

That’s why I reached out to the developers of Downcast, one of may favorite apps of last year and my absolute favorite podcasting app…period. Jaden reviewed it for the site just over a year ago and the app has only gotten better and better since then, with constant updates and new features being added all the time.

Seth McFarland at Jamawkinaw Enterprises was kind enough to give us a handful of Downcast promo codes to give away to you, our faithful readers. So now’s your chance to break free from podcast listening mediocrity and win a FREE copy of this wonderful app!

The details on how to enter are listed below and if for some reason you are not selected as one of our winners, I would still highly recommend that you pick up Downcast for $1.99 on the App Store, you won’t regret the purchase!

How Can You Win?

We have three different methods of entry: post comment, twitter and Facebook, each of which earns you one entry into the contest for a promo code.
Each entrant can only win one promo code, despite the number of entries.

  1. Leave a comment on this post stating why you’d like to win a copy and the name of one or more of your favorite podcasts.
  2. Follow @OTGGamer (or @AppAddictnet) AND tweet the following message:
    I’m entered to win a FREE copy of the premium podcast app Downcast, courtesy of #iPhone #iPad“.  
    Note: Tweeting multiple times WILL NOT increase your chances to win, only your first tweet will count toward the contest, so no need to spam your followers.

Each method above will earn you ONE entry into the contest for a promo code. Don’t worry, your email address is not visible to anyone but us and will only be used to contact you regarding this contest.

The giveaway will run until Noon PST on Saturday July 14, 2012.

* I will give one bonus entry to the first person who correctly guesses the number of times that I have been a guest host on The Portable Podcast.

Contest is open to entrants worldwide.
